Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

I have a 2wire 2700HG-B router and I've had a problem connecting on a wireless connection. While the wireless card finds the network and connects, it has limited or no connectivity because the router won't assign it an IP address. I've tried to keep the settings on automatic and also have put them in manually, but to no avail. I made sure the SSID and network key were entered and correct. I've also tried updating the drivers on the wireless card. From my experience it isn't usually this difficult to connect. Can you suggest ways to help me?

The 2wire is setup with a default network key. Change the network key on the 2wire to another key or type in what you think the default network key is on the 2wire.

Where do I find the network key for my 2wire 2701HG-B router?


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

I don't know how to configure my 2wire 2700HG-B wireless, I need to connect my ipod. can someone help me to set them up?


hi there, first is you need to know the wireless settings of the 2wire first, the channel, SSID and the encryption.

once wireless settings are verified then you may try to go to the IPOD, go to settings/wi-fi/ then choose the network there/ try to connect to your network/if it will ask you for a network key, input that as well/ try to connect and you should be connected now.

I have a 2wire router from AT&T, all lights are green, except the "wireless" light. It's not on, how do I become wireless?????


Hi dilex
The 2wire router wireless light comes only when a system is connected to it wireless.

Please post the system that you are using and also what exactly when you try to connect via wireless.

Wiring up 2700hg-b wireless router


Hi, you will need a ethernet card in the pc to connect up a wireless router, most dont work with usb,
otherwise you would need a wireless adapter.
once you do get it connected, go into internet explorer and type in the ip adress for the router, will then come up with a menu for you to programme in your broadband details, once you get the router up and going, go into the PS3 settings, network settings, it will pick up the router all you need to do is enter the network key and its all go from there.,
ethernet card should cost you about £10 from any shop
Happy New Year
