Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem

Before installing the 2wire wireless modem, didn't have any problem sharing desktop network (drive & printer) throughout the network using a Siemens 4100 Speedstream modem and Linksys model BEFW11S4. I have tried several things (i.e., deleting all shared components and then re-sharing each device), and still I could not share the resourses on the network. I setup a Home Network on each computer where each computer is assigned same workgroup.

Would like to know what I'm doing wrong in configuring my home network using the 2wire wireless modem (model # 2701HG-B).

    Tried pinging between both computers and I get a "Request timed out". When access shared files from the Home Network tab, I get the shared printer but can't access any of the shared resources. Crazy but something is stopping the next action or execution of the response.



    XP firewall is turned off, but my Virus protection firewall is active and I don't want to turn it off. Before going with 2wire modem, I had XP firewall active and Virus firewall active and I could share resources within network without any problem. Why is 2wire so different?



    Tried and these are my results....

    ok....

    so whats happening when you go to my network palaces and then under my work group computers...is it detecting any computers or is it blank..if u see the computers just click on it and see if it see the shared folders and files...

    what you can do is go check if any firewall is blocing the new sharing setup,,,

    do this in both the computers,

    click on run,type in cmd hit enter and then in the black box type in ipconfig and hit enter make a note of the ip address from both the computers,now the ip address from the 1st computer needs to be pinged from the 2nd computer and the ip address from the from 2nd computer needs to be pinged from the 1st computer.

    how to ping,click on start,run type in cmd and hit enternet and the black box type in ping and then give a space adn then type in the ip adress (eg shud b like this ping 192.168.1.101) and hit enter if u get request timed out then there is a firewall blocking,if the ping is successfull we need to check other settings...



    do this and let me know...

Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

How to set up uverse home network with 2wire gateway


To use AT&T Uverse for a home network, you need to get the AT&T "Homeview" Network Management software. AT&T provided this software in the past freely.

This software must be run on each PC on your home network, and then each PC can see the others. You then use go to My Computer, select each disk drive you want to share, right-click and select Sharing and Security, and select to share the drive. Then go on the drive to the folders you want to share and right-click and set them to be shared. Then the Homeview system will show these are shared folders. You can also share printers on the same network using the Homeview software.

Vista and xp network


  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  3. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

Home wireless network through my 2wire wireless router/DSL modem.


From what I understand the flash drive is for saving the configuration so you can transfer it to other computers that you may want to put on the network.
