Re: 2Wire router

I had a similar problem, but instead of no connection, our connection kep dropping. We were about 100feet from the router, using a Belkin USB wireless adapter on a desktop running XP. I went into the router, changed the power setting dropdown from 6(default) to 10 and when I hit save, the connection status lit up super fast and has stayed in "excellent" for a few days now! YES!

Re: 2Wire router

You need to get into the routers settings by way of the router management software, or typing its ip address in your web browser. in the local area network section make sure that wireless is enabled, and exit. Lastly restart the router as sometimes they can lock out for some reason, remove the mains power connector for about 30 seconds or so and reconnect. If the wireless still does not show, look to your wireless card or whatever you are using on your pc and check that they are working as normally the wireless light only flickers when a wireless peice of hardware is connecting to the internet.

Problem with wireless network connection.

Usually, new laptops now have a toggle switch for wifi. It means you have to switch your wifi ON so that it will start receiving signal and transmitting data to your router. Just locate your wifi switch and turn it ON.

I have a 2wire wireless router and it keeps restarting

Test it on a different phone outlet, if it does the same , then the router is faulty. In that case replace the router. If router works fine on a different phone outlet, then the phone socket is faulty.

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.
