Log into your router. Click on home network. Status at a glance box, click on edit settings under wireless settings. Under setting click enable SSID and Wireless network security. Your WEP key is on the side of your router. The number above the second bar code with brackets around it.


Hope this helps you.


To log on to your router type the routers ip address into the address bar. If you don't know it....click start....run...type cmd press enter....type ipconfig /all at command prompt...press enter... look for default gateway address.... type that number into the address bar of your browser.

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

My 2wire router 2701 HG-B drops the wireless connection when someone calls on the home hard wired line. Is there something wrong?


Your wall filters may be plugged in wrong. Verify they are plugged in correctly. This is likely the problem.

Can't access modem from desktop


If your DSL works on PPPOE then you need to setup PPPOE on the 2wire router with the Complete Username and the PAssword for the PPPOW connection, if your DSL works on a Local IP address like 192.168.1.254 or 192.168.1.1 then first check the gateway address of the 2wire Router, if it's in the same IP address range like the DSL Modem like 192.168.1.x the you need to change the Local IP address of the router from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.2.x that should get you up and running with the DSL Modem.

Try restoring it to factory defaults and start again with securing your network, document every change you make that way you can come back to it and see what change you made that might be affecting your internet access

I have a 2wire HG-B modem/router and I want to extend my wireless network by using a Hawking HWRN1A router. How do I configure my 2wire with my Hawking router, so it can work?


this hint is only possible if your hawking can be used a an access poit. if yes then try try the following:

connect you adsl line into your modem/router,

connect the lan cable of your modem into a switch

connect both your PC and Hawking into the switch

have your modem/router provide DHCP and DNS

configure your PC to gte its ip address and DNS dynamically

configure your hawking access point to also get its dns and dhcp dynamically (do this by getting into the hawking http page configuration, or telnet if you are good with commands)

now set a wireless lan with WPA or higher through your hawking.

there you have it.
doubts??? i have more solutions

RE: My posted. Connecting DSL/Router to DIR-628 internet router


Installing a router to work as the second one on a home networkrequires special configuration. Do the following on the second routerto ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode.Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; thesemust be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for detailson its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP addresssetting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a tworouter environment. Check the second router's IP address value andreset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of thefirst router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP- To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the homenetwork, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

(My netgear router supports client mode. The 2wire supports bridged and router mode. My 2wire is the main router. I set up my netgear using my laptop. Once you change the address on the router.. You will only be able to directly access through the main router to the 2701.)

Configure your 2701 IP address to a static address in the 192.168.2.1 range and diable DHCP. Only 1 router can run the DHCP service. To disable Dhcp on the 2701.... log on to 2701> click on home network>advanced settings>uncheck enable DHCP>Next section is Public routed subinterface...Check enable and Aout Firewall Open>Input your main router address and mask>save config..

This worked with the Netgear router.. May not with your router. Good Luck! Hope this helps!
