    You need a router. The 2-Wire is just a modem.

    The first thing which is important is that 1 cable from you broad band goes to your uplink port of your gigaway router if it doesn't have auto sensing.



    second.



    the broadband is that a modem or router. Do you already have more than 1 computer working on the internet.

The 2Wire modem has his own DHCP server. But Perhaps is the Gigaway 8 is s hub, its the same as connecting various equipment on the same cable. In other words, all the items on the hub is trying to communicates at the same time, in ethernet only one can communicate at a time. So you need a switch. Altough, look similar, the switch do no share the same "cable". It allows all to communicate in a order fashion making a collision free connection.

How can I hookup lan printer to the 2wire connection?


If the 2WIRE only has one Ethernet port, you're stuck, until you purchase a router, and connect the router to the 2WIRE, and connect your computer and your printer to 2 of the 4 ports on the router.

How can I install or connect my d link to the internet line and my computer


Hi,

I assume you have a broadband connection which you are directly to your computer.

In that case please connect the broadband ethernet cable to one of your switch port.
Get a new CAT5 or CAT6 ethernet straight cable and connect one end to any free port of the DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch and other end to your Computer.

No configuration needed to be done on DES-1008D 8-Port Ethernet Switch

Best Regards

Hi I cannot connect a NETLINK 2wire modem to my linkeye g router. What do I need to set so I can get the modem and router to connect


The 2WIRE modem will have at least 3 ports:
* AC power,
* 4-pin telephone-cable, connecting to a telephone-jack in a wall-port,
* 8-pin Ethernet-cable, connecting to the 'WAN' port on the LINKSYS router.

Look at both ends of the Ethernet cable. It's necessary that the colour-arrangement of the 8-wires is _IDENTICAL_ at both ends, i.e., a "straight-through" cable, NOT a "cross-over" cable.

With another "straight-through" Ethernet-cable, connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-adapter port on your computer.

Turn on the 2WIRE modem. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.

Turn on the router. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.

Turn on your computer. When Windows finishes booting, you should have a connection to the Internet.

I have an external modem for broadband connection. it connects only via usb i am not able to connect via the phone cable port. what seems to be wrong?


The broadband modem connects to thecomputer using the USB or nework port not the phone cable port.
The network port has 8 wire connectors and whilst they both look similar the network (10baseT) port is wider than the phone port.

You also need to configure or reconfigure the model to let it know which cable you are using to connect the modem to the computer.

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

Can't get my netgear PCI Adapter connected to my 2wire 1800hw broadband


You will need to modify the router configuration rather than the adapter to setup port forwarding. Normally Network Address Translation (NAT) will allow most of your services to connect without issue.
