Question about 2wire Wireless-G 802.11g ADSL Gateway
Have usb ADSL modem with orange broadband. Bought 2wire 1701 ADSL wireless router. Followed set up instructions up to the step where it says to go to explorer and type in the wireless router configuration address. My explorer doesnt find it? ALso windows is set to auto find ip and dns etc but it cant find the gateway and comes up with limited or no connectivity?
Heres the steps i took:
- Reset wireles router on back as per manufacturers instructions. Un installed previous modem form windows ( had to reinstall to contnect to internet today)
-Connected phone line from previous modem to wireless router, so only wire between router and filter on phone line box
- Checked computer was set to auto get ip address
-Checked available wireless networks, it picks up the 2wire238 router, connect and entered the network key.
- Computer then spends ages trying to find ip address, sometimes does but cannot get gateway? Then error bubble comes up about limited or no connectivty. It is at this point on instructions that came with router that it says to go to modem internal configuration page through explorer. BUt the address supplied the computer cant find?
Im stuck please can someone help me that knows?
Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
