Look on the bottom or the back of the modem for a reset button. Press and hold this with a pin or something similar for about 5 seconds. Then use the default configuration to login to the admin page f your router (Normally 192.168.1.1)

Default config is usually on a sticker on the bottom of the router , or on the router box or something

I am trying to connect my kindle to my 2wire modem and I need the security type and the password


If you have not modified your 2wire, the security key is a WEP and is printed on a tag on the modem. It should be in a set of brackets around the serial number. For example [123456789]

Cant figure out how to connect to xbox live?


there is a way to reset the modem but you will lose your configuration and you would have to start all over again.
on the back of the modem where you connect the cables there is a tiny hole it may say reset. with the modem on, go ahead and stick a pen, toothpick or something of that nature in to the reset hole and hold it for about 10 seconds, you would see the lights go out and come back on. at that moment go ahead and release the tiny button and wait for modem to come back on. At this point you can go ahead and reconfigure it, you have to enable the wireless feature, enable you password (both set up and configuration), rename your network, etc. DO NOT keep the default settings and try to use WPA instead of WEP is harder to crack. for you to do all of this you have to connect your computer to the modem with a cable and type the address to access it or open ie and type homeportal in the address bar. it should take you to the configuration page (if it is a 2wire modem).

if it works for you, don't forget to rateme

Setting up my 2WIRE wireless modem as an access point


This setup is not possible for 2wire modem because it has a modem function. You can only set the device as an access point if its only pure router without an integrated modem.

DSL (2wire modem) and LAN conflict


You can actually try accessing the interface of your gateway and put it on DMZ mode. That way it will open the ports on your gateway to ensure passage of all data from your gateway to all your computers even when the dsl is on. But make sure tat you have security software installed on all your computer workstations bec. putting your 2WIRE gateway on DMZ mode will expose your connection.

2Wire 1701hg gateway- Broadband Access problem


hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)

Problems setting up 2 wire router


ok, if you can log into the router at all, you should be able to go to home network, and halfway down will be the wireless configuration.

assuming it's set to default wireless security, there should be a network key writtten on a sticker on the bottom of the router:  You'll need to enter that code in windows vista before it will allow you to connect wirelessly.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
