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

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.

Tip

Microsoft XBox Live and the 2Wire HomePortal


source: http://support.2wire.com (please visit!)

The Xbox Live service is compatible with all current and previously shipped versions of 2wire software. Simply connect your Xbox unit to the 2wire network and log on to the Xbox Live service.
If you are experiencing problems connecting to the XBox Live service, follow the troubleshooting procedures provided in your XBox Live documentation or XBox Live CD sleeve.
If you continue to have trouble, here are some additional troubleshooting tips:

1. Reconnect your Xbox to the 2wire Homeportal


Turn off the Xbox and unplug your 2wire HomePortal from the electrical outlet.

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Local Ethernet port on the 2wire HomePortal.

Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console.

Plug your 2wire back into the electrical outlet and wait for all lights to turn solid green before proceeding.

Turn on your Xbox console (without a disc in the tray).

From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Xbox Live.

In the network settings, test the connection. The connection test should pass.


2. Create custom 2wire Homeportal firewall settings

Although a custom firewall setting should not be required, manually configuring your 2wire firewall ensures that it is not preventing your connection to the Xbox Live service.

HomePortal software version 3.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages. Alternately, you can type: http://gateway.2wire.net

Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "View your home network" link in the same box.
Click on "Edit firewall settings" next to the unknown device.
In the lower left-hand corner of this screen, click on "Add a new user-defined application."
Enter "Xbox Live" for the Application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on Add.
Repeat these same steps for the following ports and protocols:

Port Protocol
53 UDP
88 TCP
88 UDP
3074 TCP
3074 UDP

Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.
Under "Select a Host Computer" select the "unknown device".
Under "Select the Application(s)" click on "User-defined."
Select "Xbox Live" in the box on the left and click "Add."
Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.

HomePortal software version 2.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages.
Click on the "HomePortal Upgrades" button and if you have an upgrade available, download the upgrade. If you do not have an upgrade available, continue to next step
Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "Advanced" link in the same box.
In the lower, left-hand corner of this screen click on "Add an application" link. Enter "Xbox 1" for the application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP"
Leave the Protocol setting as "Other".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on DONE on the "Add Application" page.
Repeat the same steps for the following ports and protocols. You will need to create a new name for each entry:

Xbox 1 53 UDP
Xbox 2 88 TCP
Xbox 3 88 UDP
Xbox 4 3704 TCP
Xbox 5 3704 UDP

Click on DONE on the "Hosted Application" page when you are finished creating the list above.

How do I hook up my 2wire router?


Run a 2-strand or 4-strand telephone-wire from your telephone wall-jack to the telephone-port on the router.
Run an 8-strand "straight-through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet cable from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network port on your computer.
Connect the AC power to the router, and turn it on.
You now should have Internet access.

Or, telephone the Technical Support department of your Internet Service Provider, and get them to help you, step-by-step.

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.

Gears of war for pc connecting to windows live


To open TCP ports use these steps below:::


To create an application profile for 4.x and higher:
  1. Open a Web browser and access the gateway user interface by entering http://gateway.2wire.net
  2. Click the Firewall tab -> Firewall Settings link -> Edit Firewall Settings page.
  3. Click Add a new user-defined application in the Application panel to open the Edit Application page.
  4. Enter an application profile name in the Application Name field. It is recommended that you use the name of the application (for example, GEars of War).
  5. Create your application definition in the Definition panel. A definition consists of a series of protocol-specific ports that are to be allowed through the firewall. You can find this information in the documentation provided by your the company that produces the application.
  6. Select the TCP or UDP button in the Protocol field. If the application you are adding requires both protocols, you must create a separate definition for each.
  7. Enter the port or port range the application uses in the Port (or Range) field. For example, some applications require only one port to be opened (such as TCP port 500); others require that all TCP ports from 600 to 1000 be opened.
  8. Optionally, enter a timeout value in the Protocol Timeout (seconds) field for the amount of time that can pass before the application “times out.” The default values are 86,400 seconds for the TCP protocol, 600 seconds for the UDP protocol.
  9. Enter a value in the Map to Host Port field that maps the port range you established in the above step to the local computer. For example, if you set the value to 4000 and the range being opened is 100 to 108, the forwarded data to the first value in the range will be sent to 4000. Subsequent ports will be mapped accordingly; 101 will be sent to 4001, 102 will be sent to 4002, and so forth.
  10. Select the application type from the Application Type drop-down list. If you do not know the application type, select None (Default).
  11. Click Add Definition to the profile definition list.
  12. Click Done.
  13. Repeat steps 1 through 12 for each port or range of ports required for the application profile.

Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire


before you connect the netgear router to your 2wire modem, you have to get the modem configured first. you did not include the firmware version of your modem (firmware version is found at the UI, go to gateway.2wire.net, click on the system icon.) for firmware version less than 3.7, go to homeportal/management, click on configure services, uncheck enable routing, then click on submit. for version 3.7 or higher, go to homeportal/management, click on configure under broadband link, put a dot in disable pvc search, set VPI to 0 & VCI to 35, the connection type box should be direct IP, then click on submit. then go to configure services, uncheck enable routing box, then click submit. you will notice the broadband link on the 2wire modem turn orange/amber, then you have successfully set the modem to bridged mode. that way you can now connect the router according to manufacturer's instructions (or just read the manual for the netgear router....)
