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

1 Answer

Can the 2701 HG-B handle 6000-plus Kbps?

Internet provider has upped speed from 2400 approx. Kbps to 6000 approx. Kbps without changing the router. Will the 2701 HG-B handle this or is it like going from fiber optics at a node to copper wiring to the PC?

According to the setup screen, it can handle DSL link speeds up to 10692kbps (down) and 1036kbps (up)

I can't verify that it works, but... that's what it says

assuming all the settings (PPOA/PPOE etc) are correct and as long as you know you have got a broadband connection and it's not your service providers fault, check the you dont have a line fault then unplug the router for 30 seconds or so and try again.

SOURCE: ATT 2wire 2701 HG-DSL lite on, but bad connection

I've had this problem several times. The last time they sent a tech out and he put a splitter in the box outside to send a dedicated signal to the jack the dsl is plugged into. No problems since. He said I was 19,000 from their signal and that was too farso I was receiving a weak signal. Mike

You must log on to the browser interface of the router (usually for 2wire they use 192.168.1.254) run the set up wizard it will come to a screen which asks for a key code, this key code is provided by your ISP, you can try one of these and see if it works
if you have a PPPOE connection (you have a user name and password to log on to the internet with use this one.

5225-26Q4-2262-22AS-B28F

if it is not PPPOE use this

5225-26P4-6262-22AS-B2E7

to manually configure the router use this

5225-2374-WG62-22AS-BJ7P

If these do not work call your internet provider and ask them for the key code.

after that you should be all set.

If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.

If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.

Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

I think that this is a configuration issue, which can be resolved by re-configuring the router.
Please refer to the Product Manual for details about configuration and management of bandwidth.

Is the DWL-520 Wireless Adapter compatible with the 2701 HG modem


Hi,
The 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi networking standards are generally compatible. An 802.11b router / access point will work with 802.11g network adapters and vice versa.
There is no such conflict reported with the above devices. But as suggestion use an 802.11g wireless card with the Bell as it would give you better performance

Thanks for using Fixya

Try restoring it to factory defaults and start again with securing your network, document every change you make that way you can come back to it and see what change you made that might be affecting your internet access

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.

3 PC's networked to BEFSX41 very slow accessing internet


sounds like your internet access is the slow down, not the router. You don't say if you have DSL or CABLE or what.  I'd check there. Make sure you are getting a strong signal.  Hook up one system directly, without the router and check the speed.

In my new router getting less speed in wireless connection than when connected with a cable.


The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet. These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps. If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps. Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.
