att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet . These two jacks differs and there working differs .. Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication . Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.
This typically indicates a loss of synchronization. Check the following items:
-Is the modem/router connected directly to a wall jack? Make sure you remove any DSL microfilters, splitters, or telephone extension cords. -Do all of the telephones and fax machines in your home have DSL microfilters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSL_filter)? -Do you have a security system that is centrally monitored? If so, it will require a special type of microfilter that must be installed by the security company. -Try disconnecting all of the cables from the back of the modem/router, waiting one minute, then reconnecting them all.
If you've tried all of the above and you're still having problems, the problem is likely with your telephone line or your house's telephone wiring. Call your ISP's technical support and indicate that you have tried these steps. They should be able to test the line, and if necessary dispatch a technician or place a trouble ticket with the central office.
Hi, If you are using dsl line, then try to add SPLITTER or FILTER between wall jack and phone. When you connect splitter you will have one input line and two output line, one is called voice which you connect to phone and the other is data which you connect to router. you can use LAN cable to connect modem and computer. before you set the connection please remove all the connection from wall jack to computer, wait for 2 mins and then re connect, like this it will remove if any static charges stored. If you are able to see the DSL light is up and no more blinking, Then your problem is solved. Hope this information will help you
Westell makes a line of broadband home networking products that enable
residential customers and users in small businesses to access and share
broadband services. These inexpensive DSL router/modems offer
multi-users Internet LAN access for home or business applications. The
Westell router/modems allow you to have the benefits of the "always on"
high-speed broadband Internet connection without losing the ability to
receive voice calls over the same phone line.
one end of the Ethernet cable to the computer's Ethernet port. Connect
the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Westell router.
the barrel end of the router's power cord to the connector labeled "12
v" on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the power cord into
a wall outlet.
Connect one end of the DSL phone cable to the DSL line jack on the back of the router. Connect the other end to the wall jack.
Wait for the Ready and the Link LEDs to glow steady green. The router is now ready to use.
For starters that dsl modem should not be filtered.
You should place the splitter directly into the wall jack and place the filter on the side used for the phone. The side feeding the dsl line should not be filtered.
The filter serves 2 purposes. 1 it reduces data noise interference onto the voice line. 2 it preventsdslinterference from voice such as picking up and hanging up the receiver.
Please let the fax line be connected to computer itself do not remove , In the DSL line you get a splitter which the lines for phone and ADSL modem connect the splitter to DSL Line and from the Splitter you 2 o/p ports with phone marking or symbol connect the phone line to it and to line port connect the main 8957and then to ADSL line to ADSL modem from the ADSL modem connect to lan port which is behind the computer (not to dial up modem i.e is fax line ) or the usb port in the computer ...
Hi. I will not repeat the check the phone line and resetting comments as it's now redundant.
I always have a spare modem as a line tester.
I've seen several 2700HG-B 2wire modem/routers burn out and every single time it's the DSL signal or modem portion that is burnt out. Even if you have two or three phone line surge protectors these 2700s are prone to shorting out unless you have a direct signal splitter DSL setup.
Here are a few things you can try to confirm if the 2700 is no longer functional on the DSL signal light problem.
#1: Turn on (plug in) your 2700 without the phone line plugged in and wait. If the DSL starts flashing red then there is a hardware problem in the modem/router.
#2: Plug the phone line into the 2700 while the dsl light is flashing red. It might take about 3 seconds however it should start to flash green and let it flash for about (usually) three minutes. If it turns red then the 2700 is indeed damaged.
#3: If you can enter into your modem using the http://2wire... and check the connection status. The first two status lines should read attempting to connect and no connection.
