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

Dynex tv won't give me the option to connect to a wireless network. It defaults to wired


This would normally indicate either a compatibility problem, the wireless network is not broadcasting, or you do not have enough signal to see the network. First thing I would try is most devices that can connect to WiFi have the option of connecting to a network that is not listed. I would try that. If that still does not work I would then try disabling all wireless security on the router just to see if that will work(I do not recommend leaving the security disabled any longer than it takes to test this). If none of that works then the next thing would be to check the signal. If you have a laptop, tablet, or cell phone that is connected to your wireless network then bring it over to the tv. If you loose signal, or have low signal then you will need to find a way to get more signal. Even if you do not see low signal on other devices the tv can still have too low signal partly because the antennas are usually in the back where the signal would be blocked by the tv as well as any other equipment you may have around the tv. Try to make sure that there are no metal objects between the tv and the router, and if possible try to get the router as close to directly behind the tv as possible. The more walls the wireless signal has to go through the weaker the signal will be, and metal can reflect the signal, completely blocking it, as well as causing noise on anything near the metal.

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.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

Wired and wireless computers


First get your router works with the internet on the wired connection before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem.

Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless.

Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network.

So this can be a three step process.

If you internet service is provided by a cable(tv) there is a reasonable chance your router will work out of the box no configuration changes. However, if your internet service is supplied on the phone line chances your router will work as it comes out of the box are much less. Who is your Internet Service Provider and if possible can you supply a link to their help/support website so I can see if they supply configuration instructions?
