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

I dont know crouter configuration


Hai,

Look at your computer's IP configuration. Go to Network and Dial-up Connections, RIGHT CLICK on your network and pick PROPERTIES. Click on the Internet TCP/IP protocol, then click on the PROPERTIES button. Make sure that your settings are OBTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY.

Then get into your status screen and look at the GATEWAY address. Is that 192.168.0.1 ?

(If you are using Windows 95/98/ME, then go to RUN and go to WINIPCFG)

You can also use the COMMAND PROMPT and type IPCONFIG and it will show the Gateway address. If the Gateway address is slightly different, then try to get into it at that address.

Also from the COMMAND PROMPT, (or MS-DOS window) you can use the PING command. Just type PING 192.168.0.1. If your router responds, you might be OK.

Look at the lights on your ethernet card. Is it GREEN, or does it show YELLOW.

Try rebooting your computer and using PING again.

Then the problem presist it's possible that this Router is NO GOOD.

Hope this Helped!

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..
