Changing over from a 2wire modem with a basic phone line; running desktop with Ethernet cord, 2 laptops wireless. Can not figure out how to interface into my Linksys G 2.4 Router. Is there such a cord that goes from a phone line to a ethernet connection?

    In all reality a Broadband Router in no way shape or form replaces the need for a modem; correct? If not is the only reason to have a router to be able to connect more than on wifi computer?

    I guess my to the point question is. Is that without a modem does a wireless router work at all?

Your router only does not have a modem capability (e.g. home gateways - a modem and router combo).

refer to 2wire documentation or your ISP tech support on how to switch 2wire to "modem only" mode. then connecting it to the router which will share the internet connection to all computers (wired or wireless)

Run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

I need to know where to plug the big yellow phone cord. One end goes in the top plug in the back of the router and where does the other end go? In the back of the motorola motem? What else is supposed to...


Hello,
The cord you are referring to is a CAT5 network cable. The color isn't important, but they usually ship the routers with color cords to help with the installation. Typically you would have the following setup:

1. A CAT5 network cable that runs from your broadband modem TO your Belkin Wireless Router in the "Internet" port. (Port "a" in the diagram)
2. Now plug another CAT5 network cable in to the back of your computer's Network Interface Cord TO one of the remaining ports on your Belkin Wireless (Any of the port "b" in the diagram).

However, you will need to run the configuration software that come with your router.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.


That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

Desktop and two laptops won't work with modem & router now


Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem


Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com
