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

1 Answer

Won't assign IP address

I have a 2700HG-B router and am having difficulty connecting on the wireless. I have made sure my SSID and network key are correct, it is set to WEP, and that the drivers on my wireless card are updated. I have tried keeping the settings to automatically assign the IP address, and have also manually assigned them. Neither worked. Can you suggest anything I can try to connect online?

How to secure my wireless router


    • 1 Connect your wireless router per the instructions in your user manual.
    • 2 Open your Internet browser and enter the IP address assigned to your router. Major manufacturers assign different default IP addresses to their routers. For example, Netgear routers use 192.168.0.1 while Linksys uses 192.168.1.1. Consult your manual for details.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3 Log in to your router configuration by typing the username and password specified in your manual.
    • 4 Set your Service Set Identificatier (SSID) by typing it into the box. This is the name of your wireless network. Make it a unique phrase; the default SSID is usually the name of the router manufacturer, such as Netgear or Belkin.
    • 5 Set your wireless network's security protocol to WPA 2.0 -- Wi-Fi Protected Access. This encrypts any data sent over the network and allows access only to users who have the security key. Set your security key as something not easily guessed. A string of random numbers and letters is recommended. Be sure to record this security key in a safe place so you can recall it when adding a new device to your network or changing network security settings.

Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

I think a functional explanation may be of some assistance to you.

The IP address is assigned to the server or client software, but not to the physical workstation which the software or device is installed.

D-Link and virtually every other provider uses IP addresses from a Private IP Address class, which is special class of IP addresses that is reserved for private local networks (not to be confused with Virtual Private Networks, or VPN).

The default IP address is 192.168.0.x and assigned automatically. The most common IP address in any local system is 192.168.0.1.

Over the years, I've found that it is unnecessary to manually TCP?IP settings unless the automatic settings or configuaration has failed When I do have to change the settings, the following are used on Local Area Networks (LANs):

IP Address 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Do not change
Gateway IP
Address None because the default should be 192.168.1.0 or whatever was
automatically assigned.

Some additional information that should assist you in better understanding a LAN.

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a key which is set by the wireless network administrator. You must know the SSID to connect to a 802.11 wireless network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing/scanning. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share the same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.

SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

All the best

Connected Cisco - cannot get connection to my laptop - reads Limited Connectivity


"Limited connectivity" means you did not obtain an IP address from the network. Type "ipconfig" at the command prompt to check - if your address starts with 169, it is an invalid auto-assigned address. Normally you would get an address in the range 192.168.x.xxx if it is working. Did you get a wireless connection but just no IP address? In other words, does your computer indicate "connected to xxxxx" (your wireless network name)? Check the router using a wired connection to get to the admin pages. Look for SSID (name of network), security settings and DHCP settings. Your security should be set to WPA2 (and the pre-shared key should be entered in your computer's wireless settings) and DHCP should be turned on and should have a defined address pool. DHCP is what assigns IP addresses; you can define a range of IP addresses to give out (the pool). If none of this works, please post more detail such as your router model and exactly what messages your are seeing.

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

I have a wireless G router with a remote that connects to the router. It connects to the router but will not go on out to the internet. When I type IP config and check, it gives the wrong weird IP address....


If you are getting IP address like 169.254.x.y ( x and y might be any numbers), then it is autogenerated IP address.
Computer generates this IP address when it doesn't get IP address from the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you have correct network key or password.
Check the wireless settings of the router.
Make sure that there is no static IP address assigned to the wireless network connection.

Dear
If you have a wi-fi router - you can use PS3's wi-fi feature (available in all models except long gone 20GB). If you have a wired router - just get RJ-45 cable (Ethernet) and plug your PS3 into the router.
After that - go to Network Settings in menu and follow the instructions.
Nac address is not the ip address but the network card ID

Go into the network settings, select connection type.

Pick the wireless option, and select 'SCAN', your Sky router will come up.

Go right, select the type of securing setting (check what type this is by logging onto you router).

Enter the password.

U may require a WAP key for the connection.

Or do something like this

1.Go to network settings in settings menu.
2.Then go to internet connection settings.
3.Then select easy.
4.Select wireless.
5.Select scan.
6.Select your router from the list.
7.Make sure the ssid is correct(The same as the one on the bottom of the router)
8.Select WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK.
9.Type in the network key that is on the bottom of the router(In capitals)
10.Make sure everything is correct.
11.Test connection.

Hope this would help U dear. Please rate the answer if it helps u.
Thanks
Enjoy
