IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.254 is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.
1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless) 2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking. 3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet. 4) try this also: this for internet explorer: click tools - connections - LAN settings ( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it ) if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it. after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.
Where are you losing the connection? Between the computer and the 2wire or between the 2wire and the outside world?
Are the 2 macs the same or different (model & OS etc).
There shouldn't be an issue with the macs connecting to the 2wire (I'm assuming wireless) but if there is, try connecting them by ethernet cable to the 2wire and see if that improves things. If it doesn't then I would suspect that either the 2wire itself OR the wire outside your house are to blame.
(There should have been a spare ethernet cable (yellow or blue) in the box with the 2wire - that's if you still have the box.)
Hello hopefully ican hel solve your issue i have a 2wire modem myself ans have found that 2wire products are very picky. To answer your question for 2wire products when you try to connect wirelessly it wants you to type in the wep key which is the serial number of the product otherwise you are unable to connect. Now as far as losing your password if you are able to get into the 2wire product via browser so you can bring up the main software page you can try to see if you can get too any info that relates to resetting your info like username and password. Otherwise do a search for your product and search forums and you will most likely find someone that has had to recover there info and they will tell you how they do it. Good luck
You don't need to connect your netgear, you have only to connect your computer to the 2Wire (is wireless also) - If your computer ins not wireless Only you have to do is insert a wireless PCI card in your computer or and USB wireless device and connect to the 2Wire Wireless Router
To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.
The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..
I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.
Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
