Can't access 2wire network using netgear adapter

I am unable to access my 2wire wireless network using my netgear wireless adapter on the second computer. I am currently at the stage where it asks for the WEP key and confirmation, I type them in ( and I have check for accuracy multiple times) it tries for a little under a minute and fails to connect without any error message as to why. When I attempt to repair the connection it cannot and fails at the "connecting to wireless network" step. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated and the sooner the better. Thanks.

    Thanks, ronraz, I am responding from said 2nd computer so it definitely worked. The whole reason I had to restart the network up from scratch however was it had been hacked due to lack of security last time. Any advice you can give on implementing either WEP or WPA without it messing up the wireless connection to this second computer? Thanks again.

I was also having trouble with my Netgear wireless n USB adapter connecting to my new at@t 2WIRE gateway. The problem was that the netgear software wouldn't allow my computer to stay connected to my 2WIRE gateway and the software wouldn't allow Windows when restarting my computer. I have Windows XP and after hours with at@t support there was no resolution and they gave me Netgear's suport number to call 1-888-638-4327. After 10 min. the problem was fixed. They had me click start icon at bottom left corner then all programs, then highlight "start up" and if you see anything like netgear adapter or netgear start up wizard right click on it and click delete. That was it! rebooted my computer and it connected automatically!!! I'm not very computer knowledgable but I hope this helped

    Because of nena10, I unplugged the computer that had been connected to the netgear, rebooted the netgear (by unplugging for 30 seconds) then plugged in, and now my 2 wire connects with no problem. The computer that I unplugged from its ethernet connection to the netgear router is a mac, so I don't know where the startup settings will be, but when the mac owner returns tomorrow I'll tell him that my 2 wire NOW sees the netgear, and therefore what is the mac doing when it's booted on, that causes my 2 wire to NOT be able to connect. Thank you nena 10.

Maybe it's the the router wep key, so let's try to remove the wireless security from the router then try to connect, if the problem solved try to but another type of security on ur router ex.(WPA), if not try to uninstall ur wireless driver then install it again but without any other application for the wireless, cuz some times the wireless driver install support wireless software that conflicts with windows wireless manager.
i hope this was usefull

2wire wireless usb

You just go to network connection and select your network connection. Just right click to it and go to properties. Configure it which suits you best (Do it if you know about dialling rules and near by dialing environment ie if this support the high speed prefer high speed and it support low spped then do low spped as it optimized the network utilizations.) You can also use network utilization tools available in tune up utility, etc whichever availabel in market.

How can i turn mac filter off n netgear router

You need to go into the Netgear router setup configuration - then the wireless configuration - scroll down to MAC address filtering and click on disable.
Open the browser and enter then enter the login and password.
If you have forgotten these then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by pressing the reset botton on the back of the router for several seconds until the LEDs light flash.
The default login = admin and the PW = password

Is the DWL-520 Wireless Adapter compatible with the 2701 HG modem

The 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi networking standards are generally compatible. An 802.11b router / access point will work with 802.11g network adapters and vice versa.
There is no such conflict reported with the above devices. But as suggestion use an 802.11g wireless card with the Bell as it would give you better performance

Thanks for using Fixya

Wireless network adapter not working

I've had a similar problem with a USB wireless adapter working ok for over a year and it recently stopped connecting because it would keep scanning different channels every 30 seconds or so.

The solution that worked for me was to change the default radio channel on the access point (for my netgear router I did this by logging on to and changing the settings in there).

Changing the channel from the default 11 to (lucky) 7 did the trick. The router notes say that changing channels may help if another access point is interfering with the signal, and my issue only cropped up when some new neighbors moved in so my best guess is they were also using channel 11. Hope this helps.

What are you trying to connect your USB wireless device to?
Is it to a wireless hot spot?
or to a Wireless Access Point/Router?
When you find a connection, what is the signal strength?
I assume you have configured your Access Point correctly as well as making it secure. You should connect a computer to the Access Point using a network 10BaseT cable to check the Access Point configuration, especially the wireless configuration.

If you are trying to connect to a wireless Access Point and you have a weak signal, move your computer closer to the Access Point or move the Access Point to a better and higher location to give you a better wireless coverage. Note, walls can affect the wireless signals between the Access Point and the wireless network card and wireless USB device, especially reinforced concrete walls.
