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

RE: My posted. Connecting DSL/Router to DIR-628 internet router

Hi XopenX

You mentioned that it is possible to connect 2Wire 2700 gateway with another router. Can you please show me the configuration. Here's my settings:

Main Router: DIR-628
IP: 192.168.2.1
SM: 255.255.255.0
GW: Cable Modem

2nd Router: 2wire 2700
IP: 192.168.1.1
SM: 255.255.255.0


I just could not locate in the 2wire SW to configure it to talk to DIR-628. I think that's why I was not able to connect. Please help you have the solution. I appreciate very much.

    Hi XopenX



    I was able to configure everything except configuring to client/bridge mode on the 2wire. I guess 2wire router does not support client mode therefore it works better if 2wire is the main router. I've set the 2wire as my second router because I've disconnected my DSL line. Currently using comcast cable internet with DIR-628 as my first router.



    Anyway thank you for trying. Thought I might save some bucks but I've to buy the print server after all if I decide to keep my current printer else I'll get a new one with wireless in it.

Installing a router to work as the second one on a home networkrequires special configuration. Do the following on the second routerto ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode.Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; thesemust be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for detailson its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP addresssetting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a tworouter environment. Check the second router's IP address value andreset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of thefirst router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP- To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the homenetwork, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

(My netgear router supports client mode. The 2wire supports bridged and router mode. My 2wire is the main router. I set up my netgear using my laptop. Once you change the address on the router.. You will only be able to directly access through the main router to the 2701.)

Configure your 2701 IP address to a static address in the 192.168.2.1 range and diable DHCP. Only 1 router can run the DHCP service. To disable Dhcp on the 2701.... log on to 2701> click on home network>advanced settings>uncheck enable DHCP>Next section is Public routed subinterface...Check enable and Aout Firewall Open>Input your main router address and mask>save config..

This worked with the Netgear router.. May not with your router. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

Ni wifi connection on the router itself, what could be the possible cause of it.


IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE IF YOU ARE HOOKING UP FROM DSL OR CABLE
IF DSL MAKE SURE ARE YOUR PHONES HAVE FILTERS
IF CABLE MAKE SURE THAT IS CONNECTED RIGHT

UNPLUG EVERYTHING
INSERT CABLE OR DSL INTO INTERNET SLOT ON ROUTER
THEN PLUG THE ROUTER IN LET ALL THE LIGHTS COME ON
THEN TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF IT REQ THE CONNECTION IF THE LIGHTS ARE ON THE ROUTER MOST LIKELY COMPTER IS NOT CONNECTING TRY CONNECTING WITH ETHERNET CABLE

2Wire Home Portal 1100 for AT&T DSL connection problem


HI! read your posting regarding the situation that your experiencing.. If before you dont have any problem regrding your connection with out the cisco network magic. I suggest that before you install the cisco network magic. you should get the full version not the trial version, there is a limitation of setting up the trial version.. Cisco network magic is a plug and play and easy to setup if you get the full version. I dont see any problem regarding your connection with the 2wire and the linksys router, becoz you mention earlier that hime network is working and you can connect to the network and the internet..

that 2wire only works with DSL services, if you are using cable internet then no it wont work. If the surfboard digital voice is just a VOIP router then yes, plug the surfboard into one of the ethernet ports on the back of the 2wire.

I had my DSL disconnected. I am using cable internet w/Comcast. I've DIR-628 connected to Mot-SB5101 Cable Modem. This setup is working fine. However I'd like to use my old DSL/Router 2wire 2701 to connect...


First you should see a wirless icon on the botom left of your screen wich is on the task bar. The say view wirless networks or what ever it would say then you should see a list of avalible networks at that time. The slect the network that you own an say conect. When conecting it way ask for a WEP password which is located on the router. I hope this will help you.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.
