Question about 2wire Wireless-G 802.11g ADSL Gateway

2 Answers

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS

Can I configure a 3000 series 2 wire router to work without wireless active?
I have TV, Phone and wireless currently.  All I want to do is go with one ethernet cable to my desktop, and DEACTIVATE the wireless feature.
Can this be done, and where can I get information on how to do this?

    We are aware of this, however it only disables the wireless signature, -- the 3000 series still broadcasts wireless signals. Our issue is one that we do not want the wireless to function at all for health reasons (not security). According to 2 wire, when they (or you via the interface) disable the wireless capability you are only keeping it from acting as a wireless router -- the antenna continues to broadcast a signal. The amazing thing is there is a switch on the antenna portion of the circuit board, but the switch is not functional.

The 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.

The wireless can be disabled via the 3000 series user interface by typing on your browser 192.168.1.254 and uncheck the SSID broadcast or disable the wireless capability by clicking disable under local network field

You will need to get a hold of att. They will need to have you unplug the 2wire and then reconnect. They will need to reset the gateway from their end. good Luck.

How do i accesses my router's configuration page, and how do i find out it's username and password? I have a Lxair b-3000.


If you forgot your username and password to any wireless router, the normal procedure is to do a factory reset. This means it will set the router back to the way it was the day you bought it. Warning: this will forget all the configuration you have done and you will need to reconfigure. If you don't know how to reconfigure then I don't recommend this.

To do this there is a RESET button on the side of the router. Hold it for 10 seconds or until one of the LED lights turns red. Release the reset button and if the SYS LED light begins to blink the defaults have been restored and ZyAir will restart.

If this doesn't work you have a second option

Turn off the ZyXel ZyAir B-3000, then while holding the RESET button turn the ZyAir back on. Continue holding the RESET button. The SYS Led light will begin to flicker and blink rapidly for 20 seconds. Release the RESET button and the ZyAir will restart. Wait for it to restart.

The factory password for the ZyAir B-3000 is 1234

Click here http://192.168.1.2 and type in the 1234 password and click LOGIN. You will probably see a screen to change your password. I recommend you do this.

You will need to reconfigure the router

As I said before change the password from 1234 to something else, plus If there is no security after the factory reset I would read the manual (see below) and setup at WPA or WPA-PSK security on the wireless router (I do not recommend WEP security it is too easy to crack).

You can find the ZyXel ZyAir B-3000 manual here: ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/B-3000/user_guide/B-3000_3.50.pdf

This is basically an issue with the settings on wireless. Feature incompatibility is what i ll say. Your 2wire access point will be broadcasting a mixed wireless signal. Open the access point interface on a web browser by typing: http://192.168.1.254
Go to the WIRELESS settings section.
Change the SSID to whatever you want (It should be 1 word with no spaces).
Change the wireless mode to 802.11g only.
Change the wireless channel to 1, 6 or 11 (any of these).
Finally, it would be preferred if you set your wireless security mode or type as "64-bit WEP" and the key1 can be set as your phone no. because it has to be 10 numbers.
Now if your access point is WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) enabled, you can disable that feature.

Even if these steps do not work, you must take a back-up of the settings and upgrade the firmware version or re-flash the same version of firmware and restore to factory defaults and then later if it cannot be configured back by you, you can simply restore the saved the settings.

For further clarifications, please revert! Good question. Even we technicians encounter it.
Thanks for asking.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity


Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
