Re: Noisy phone line with 2wire rpoter

If the line is clear, just use a line filter only where you have a phone fitted and nowhere else, that way you can try the different filters if you are using more than you need as it sounds as if one may be faulty. Also check any extension leads you may have or remove and check you phone line again for noise. If there is noise it would normally stop you from connecting to the internet also.

I have a 2 wire home portal 1000HW. We recently had a power failure and the unit stopped working. I have checked the power supply with a vom and it is putting out the rated 6V. I have tried multiple...

Check your current rating on the OEM power supply.. I think your power supply needs 2 amps at 6 Volts. The cheap ones at radio shack are usually only 2 ma.

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..

I recently upgraded from my 2wire DSL to Uverse. My older laptop with the 2wire card and the home portal fins the new network but only runs at 11 mbps. Where my other laptop with the newer 2wire software...

That means the older 2wire card was a B model adapter, which can only run at 11mbps. The other laptop most likely has built in wireless or some other adapter in it that runs on the G model, which is 54 mbps. There is no way to fix this issue, other then aquiring a new wireless adapter for your older laptop.

2wire Home Portal 1800HW

This 2-Wire Home Portal is a DSL modem. It can be used by itself as a wireless modem. It cannot be hooked up to an existing modem.

I UPGRADED TO VISTA AND NOW I CANT GET MY 2WIRE PORTAL SOFTWARE TO INSTALL. IS THERE AN UPGRADE OR NEW SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ? ► there is no need to install the CD if ur trying to connect using an ethernet cable to the 2wire. If ur attempting a wireless connexn, u shud configure the wireless set up.

1000 SW (Model) for 2wire,Connects fine, intermittently the Broadband Link goes ORANGE and keeps me off Internet ► this is a possible line problem. Try plugging ur 2wire's phone cable directly to the phone/wall jack removing the filter or splitter in the process. Then see if the problem reoccurs. If it DOES NOT, replace ur filter with a new one. If it DOES reoccur or if it is already connected to the phone/wall jack directly, contact ur Internet service provider.

keep me posted on these...

Home portal not yet activated


XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care
