Are you trying to use wireless? If so, do you have poor signal? I would suggest browsing to your modems interface. Type gateway.2wire.net into your web browser. Click on the Homenetworking icon. Select wireless settings. Type in your system password. Increase the power of your wireless setting located towards the bottom of the page. You can even try changing the wireless channel. Save and then retry to connect. Make sure you are entering the network key correctly.

    When you say your modem is taking forever to identify, i'm guessing you are trying to do a wireless connection?

    If you are trying to do wireless, you might be having an issue with encryption. I would try turning it off in the router and see if that helps you connect. Make sure you are using the right wep key, 10 digit # in [], located on the modem.

    To turn off encryption open IE or Safari and browse to gateway.2wire.net.
    Click on the HomeNetwork Icon
    Select Wireless settings
    Enter your system password
    Uncheck the box for enabling encryption.
    Select Save
    Then try to connect back to your wireless network.
    This will let you know if the issue you are having is with encryption.

Access your modem interface by typing 192.168.1.254 on your address bar.Type in your username& password.Try to change your network name, wireless channel & power.

Also make sure that there's no electrical appliances near your modem since it will affect your signal ( EMI )

How do you connect to the 2wire 2700HG? Wireless or ethernet? In any case I suggest to access the mdc (management and diagnostic console) of your 2wire and check the DSL Diagnostics under the Troubleshooting Category. Check the attenuation rate of your 2wire there so you can see if external problems are affecting the 2wire. The 2wire is also a modem\router and eventough it rarely affects the speed of your connection, the 2wire Firewall might also affect the speed of your cx. Another thing to check are the electrical interference on your 2wire. EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) do affect the 2wire router greatly. I mean it LITERALLY. A great Interference can cut your signal strength from full bars to 1 bar even tough your just 10 feet away from the router. You can also check the Broadband Status on the Network at a Glance Page to check if the speed are jumping in and out. And also try to contact your Internet Service Provider or the 2wire direct technical support (1-877-3478680) for further assistance. God Bless!

SOURCE: could not find an ATM circuit

turn the router and the PC off, turn the router on 1st, wait for all the lites to turn on...if you have DSL wait for the DSL lite to be on .....no blinking. then turn PC on.. IF problem still there then its either the router or the NIC that needs replacement.

This Issue Pertains to your line being connected to a bad DSLAM port in your ISP's "Central Office" I am a computer technician, and have dealt with this issue about six times, two of which were on my lines. there is nothing to troubleshoot, stop power cycling, you are wasting your time, call your isp techs and have them get thier ***** out there to the office and fix your line.

Connecting new HP desktop - hardwiring into CISCO Valet Plus. Internet will not come up. Take the cable and plug back into old computer; internet comes up just fine. Any ideas?


Make sure that the plug is in thr correct port of the router. The ethernet cable going from the modem to the router should be plugged into a port labeled WAN or Internet. Then, after that's done, unplug your modem for about 30 seconds or so to delete the MAC address saved in the modems memory. Modems can only "speak" to one device, and they always remember the address of the device they were "talking" to. You need to clear that memory out so that the modem can address the new device, which is the new router in your case. hope that this was helpful.

You can easily identify if it's the router or talk talk. Bypass the router and connect your computer directly to the modem and check if the same problem occurs. If it does, then the problem is talk talk. If not, you can login to the router's setup page by going to http://192.168.2.1 you can see there the MTU
