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 on the address bar of your browser to change the password.

I have a 2wire wireless router but i've had it hooked up to my airport express as the wireless router. How do i get the 2wire to function as the wireless router? only the DSL light lights up, not the...

Since the Wireless light is off, lets assume that the access point is just switched off.

That function is switched on and off from the router's control panel accessible via web browser. And you can follow these steps to get to the Wireless configuration control panel.

Open this URL from your browser

If you have a system password enabled (and it's asking for it) but you didn't set it, or you forgot what it is you can click the

can’t remember the password

link if the password hint does not help you. In order to reset the password, you'll be asked to enter a 10 digit code which you can find on the bottom of the router itself.

Once you're able to gain access to the control panel, you'll want to
  1. click the 'Home Network' tab
  2. click the 'Wireless Settings' link
From this panel you can make changes to how the wireless access point portion of the router is configured. By default your router's wireless should be on, but since it's not I'm going to assume at one point in time someone turned it off so it wouldn't get confused with your airport express. If you just want your wireless settings back to the default settings
  1. click the 'RESTORE DEFAULTS' button
Then the wifi settings will be set to how they were when the router was purchased. By default the access point is secured by WEP encryption, and the key is located on the bottom of the router by the Serial Number.

Cannot get a 2Wire Gateway to recognize linksys wireless print server (wps54gu2). Can set up using lan and fix IP, enter wep password, etc. Once disconnected, gateway doesn't even recognize device.

1. Need to know what OS ( operating system) you are using.
2. Have you check if the settings are on " automatic DHCP and do you have the router
3.Check the firewall settings. This disconnection if not on the "access list" in the firewall settings.
4. Make sure you have the most current firmware updates on the router.
5. See if you can "ping" the wireless router.
6. check the " up grade history" page.

This may be a silly question, but have you input the WEP key for this new router into your laptop? It will be printed on the router with the serial number and such. It is the middle set, if I remember correctly. View all available networks with the laptop and pick yours. It should ask for the key. Input your new key and such, and you should be good as gold.

Hope this helps!

Connecting 2wire modem./router to extra linksys router

to get this right you must make sure that the 2wire will be configured to be your gateway which means that the 2wire itself will be connected to the internet then set the linksys to DHCP mode because if you dont it will give you a router behind router error , make sure that the 2wire is properly authenticated and connected to the internet to make sure access the gui by typing on your browser and run system set up wizard

2Wire 1701hg gateway- Broadband Access problem

hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)
