Since you are able to connect using a hardwired connection and you're able to connect wirelessly at the library, that simply means that your computer and your internet browser are fine. where is your wireless computer and your wireless located? are there any possible wireless devices interfering with the wireless signal like chordless phones, cellphone, TVs, radios, microwave oven? are your walls in your house covered with metal plates coz that would really make the signal deteriorate. the settinngs on your wireless router may also need to be reconfigured and boost up the signal of the wireless router.if only i could remotely access your wireless router, I would really walk you thru on what to check on your wireless router
The Wireless light only stays solid on the 2Wire HG-B Gateway when there is something keeping a wireless connection to it. IF there is nothing connected wirelessly, it will not stay on.
Also another note, I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password.
To get into the 2wire:
Open a Internet window
Home network "At the top of the page"
then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page"
Then you are in the wireless config to change the information.
What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11.
Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)
Linksys makes a simple range expander you can use. Most expanders do not need to be connected to the network by a data cable. Just put it within range of your main access point or wireless router, and it "bounces" the signals out to remote wireless devices.
Try the Linksys WRE54G ($70-$100)
the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.
you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.
Netgear's web site has an excellent tutorial on how to do this. It involves turning off the DHCP on the Netgear, and linking the LAN prots of the two routers. There is no connection to the WAN port of the Netgear.
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 gateway.2wire.net on your browser and run system set up wizard
the only thing you need for connecting 360 to wireless is an Internet connection, an 802.11G wireless router, and a wifi adapter that connects to your 360. They have these at walmart or any gaming store. I suggest giving your 2-Wire back to ATT! NOT QUALITY. Especially for gaming. I myself prefer my box to be hard wired as lag is far less. BUT..for wifi Get a Linksys Router and XBox brand wifi adapter for 360. Also google xbox connect. Instead of paying for LIVE
