Put tinfoil over your splice connectors and filters as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

It doesn't matter which port your PC is plugged into, the router will take care of that. You need to turn the wireless system on. You do this from inside the routers configuration pages which you access through your browser. Being a 2wire router, you may have to use the software on the 2wire website. Alternatively, you can try entering ip addresses into the browser address window. Try 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 etc
Once you access the router, turn wireless on and activate the security. Enter a code key and write it down as you will need to enter the same code into every PC or laptop that you wish to use the wireless connection. Setting up the wireless connection on your laptop is easy, just tell the laptop to search for available networks and when it finds the 2wire router, tell it to connect. It will then ask for the code key. Enter it and all should be well.
Usually you can find the security key for the wireless on a 2wire modem/router underneath it there's should be a 10 digit key in there as the wireless security key, if you cannot find it there you need to access the router setup page and it will be better if you can contact 2wire support to walk you through in getting that key from the router page..
The modems wireless feature is always on. For some reason entering the security code wasn't working so I turned off the security feature and it worked fine. After the wii downloaded updates I turned on the security to the most secure settings and everything continued to work. I guess maybe the wii update fixed the issue or I just needed to change to the most secure setting.
You can have 4 PCs connecting to your 2 wire 2701hgv or 2700hgv wired or wirelessly. Make sure the DSL light and the internet light is green and lighted up
For wired connection, just plug in the RJ45 cable to the ethernet 1,2,3, or 4 and the other end of the RJ45 cable on your laptop LAN card or network adaptor
For wireless connectivity, SSID is 2wire followed by the last 3 digits of the SN(or serial number) and the WEP key is located at the bottom of the 2wire modem in between 2 bar codes in square brackets. If the WEP key and the SSID was changed before in the modem page, go to the modem page and see what is the latest SSID and WEP key using RJ45 cable connected
From Andy Thoo Wai Kiat, Singtel
if all the lights on the modem are Green then it means there's no prob
with the hardware. just make sure that you're going to use the right
WEP key or wireless password. the network name is 2wirexxx, the X is
the the last 3 numbers of the SN which can be found on the bottom of
your 2wire 2701HG-B.make sure that your wireless switch is also turned
on of course. the wireless light on the modem will lit if it is
