AT&T 2Wire routers function as both routers and modems. You
can disable the router functionality by placing the router in bridge
mode. In bridge mode, the 2Wire device functions only as a modem and
forwards all incoming traffic to the device behind the 2Wire router. For
example, you can use a different router instead of the 2Wire's built-in
router by enabling bridging mode -- the router behind the 2Wire device
will get the external IP address, and the 2Wire router won't interfere.
Step 1Type "Homeportal/management" (without quotes) into
your Web browser's address bar and press "Enter" to access the
Management page in the 2Wire router's Web interface.
Step 2Provide your 2Wire router's custom password, if you set one. The router comes with no password set.
Step 3Click "Configure" under Broadband on the Management page.
Step 4Type a period (".") into the "Disable PVC Search" box.
Step 5Set the value of the "VPI" box to "0" and the value of the "VCI" box to "35".
Step 6Set the "Connection Type" to "Direct IP" and click "Submit."
Step 7Click the "Configure Services" link on the Management page.
Step 8Uncheck "Enable Routing" and click "Submit."
If everything is installed correctly, thing that you might want to check first are:
* Location of the desktop or laptop . It's possible that it might not be getting a strong signal from the router.
* If the wireless adapter has an antenna, make sure that it's in a spot where it will be able to get a good to excellent signal strength. Make sure there is nothing that can block the signal from the router like, walls, tables, and other furniture that can block the signal.
* Do you have other computers that can pick up a the signal of your 2wire router? If you have a laptop that can connect to the same router, bring it in the spot where the none working computer is, see if the laptop will have the same issue.
These are things that you can start checking before going to more technical stuff.
if your wireless router has security enabled, as a first troubleshooting step you can try disabling the security. then see if the USB adapter can connect. IF it still cannot conenct check for the default channel on the router and on the adapter side.
*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver
*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number
*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1try to connect your computer directly to the modem and check if you will also experience problem
Step 2: Shutdown the computer. Step 3: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 4: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 5: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable. Step 6: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 7: Power on the computer on and configure router settings if neede
Step 8:test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router
the 2wire will most likely have wifi security setup so you cant connect to the net with your pc til you configure the wifi key into the pc. The key will most likely be on a sticker on the underneath of the router.
