Look at the bottom of the modem. Try using the 10 digit number located within the brackets below the SN number.

Can't connect new laptop to internet through wireless


Hi...if you mean the network key, the key Windows asks for when you try to connect to a secured network, you can find this within your router settings.
As this is a 2wire model, you might also find it on a label on the router - it depends if you changed the default settings.

Please visit this page for help:
http://support.2wire.com/?page=view&article=60

- it will show you where the default network key is on the label, or if you have changed it, how to login to your router and to find it in your settings (see screenshot at base of page - your network key will just be labelled 'key'.....)

My ethernet keeps on blinking and the wireless has no light,


If the wireless light does not come on at all,
on the working computer, type (gateway.2wire.net) in internet explorer, on the top, click on "Home Network".
on the right under "Status at a Glance", make sure the "Disable" button is showing besides "Wireless", but dont click it.
But If yours says "Enable", click on it.

If that does not work, make sure that you are connecting to the right network. the name will be shown in the same section as above. The password is on the bottom of the modem/router on the sticker.

WEP key for 2wire 2700


The WEP number is in a wireless router near you, you must have a wireless router been setup in your home, then you have to program it. you choose your wep key code and only will have access to this wireless network.

contact your local IT or computer repair guy to help you with this process.

2wire HomePortal replacement necessary?


how bout customizing the wireless settings of your 2wire first for a more stable connection. like change the wireless name from it's default and enable a wireless security. you can also change the wireless channel to minimize interference from other wireless device near your area.
if you have done that already, try to upgrade the firmware of your router to check that it's not a firmware issue.
if you have done everything to solve your concern, it's better to get a replacement.
i believe your home portal is a gateway. if so, you also need to have a gateway to replace it and a router is not sufficient.
as long as your laptop has a wireless card installed, you don't need any other equipment
hope this'll help you.

Plz help me


make sure wireless switch is turned on in the laptop. it would be great to know what type of operating system you are using on this laptop. if it's XP, go to network connections on the control panel, right click it then view available wireless networks, you should be able to see your 2wire network. if it's on vista, go to start, connect to, then choose your 2wire network. if you're running Mac, click on the airport icon, then select the 2wire. all these things will let you type in a security key, just type the nos. enclosed in brackets at the bottom of your 2wire modem (just below the serial nos.)
