Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have a 2WIRE Gateway router and would like to set a password so that you have to input it to access the router config. Currently all that has to be done is type the IP address in a browser to be able to change the settings.
In order for you to reset your 2wire to default, you can press the reset button on the bottom part of your modem. Once you access you modem interface it will set to default.
Or you can also type 192.168.1.254 on the address bar of your browser to change the password.

Tips for a great answer:
Open your "Start" menu and go to the "All Programs" section. Open the Command Prompt program in your "Accessories" menu.
Type "ipconfig" in the Command Prompt and press the "Enter" key. Make note of the default gateway address that is displayed here.
Open Internet Explorer and type the default gateway in the address bar to load the 2Wire router's interface.
Click on the "System Password" link if you do not know your password for the 2Wire router. You will be asked to reset it with the system key printed on the router. Or call 2Wire support to get a temporary password.
Navigate to the "Broadband Link" icon to edit the authentication settings used to connect to the Internet. Use the "Home Network" icon to get to the wireless settings. Click on the "Firewall" icon for settings such as port forwarding.
