I experienced this same problem on a friend's AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B router. The primary computer used WinXP,sp3; I added a laptop, WinXP,sp3 and a Macbook Pro w/ Leo OS v11, successfully.

How to resolve the issue (rather, how I resolved this issue):

From the desktop computer, connected to 2WIRE:

1) Open a browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254. This site will automatically detect your settings and provide the necessary info., required to set up your wireless network.

NOTE: NTWK information/settings for THIS router can NOT be retrieved via traditional methods. Ignore all other information that assigns a name to your network and/or password. Follow only this wizard, for success in setting up your wireless connection.

2) Verify that your Firewall and System settings are correct and up-to-date. If not, update your software by pressing the link on the right.

3) Click the Home Networking tab (at top of page):

Locate @ the right of your screen, "Status at a Glance".
Under "Home Network", verify:
"Ethernet = x"; (where x = $1)
"Wireless = 0" (ZERO IS OKAY!)

("Zero" will change to "1, 2, 3, etc.," upon successful connection of ea. new wireless device(s) added to the NTWK).

* Once a new wireless device is initially and successfully connected to the NTWK, the LCD wireless indicator of the router will illuminate green.

4) Under "Wireless Settings":

NOTE, the network name. This is the name (of Network) that you will use to connect your wireless device(s).

The default password is the 10-digit number [in brackets] displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the router (directly above the UPC code, below the SN).

5) Click "Edit Settings":

In the DEVICE YOU ARE ADDING, click or type in the name of NTWK, as stated under "Wireless Settings". Next, type in the 64-bit WEP password (10-digit number displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the 2WIRE router).

6) Click "Verify your Home Network".

Verify the wireless device you added is displayed and has been added to the NTWK.
The Ethernet setting should still remain = 1 (or however many devices are connected to the INET via wire) and Wireless should = 1 (or more, if +1 device has been added).
NOW, the wireless LED shall be glowing the same pretty green, as all the other indicators on the router! You are now connected. Congratulations!

I cannot connect to my belkin connect n150 router after enabling it as an access point. Green light shows up on router and wireless network shows up but no connection when clicked. I cant connect via


Pretty sure you have to have at least one router in gateway mode to connect to the internet. An AP allows wireless devices to connect to a wired segment. The same as a router in gateway mode. AP mode has the benefit of extending a networks wireless range. If this is your only device leave it in gateway mode.

I dont know how to get wireless internet


Check the ADSL or cable modem status light. If it is solid green, it indicates that your ADSL/cable modem has a good connection. If the light is off, check modem's physical connection.

Verify that the Internet light on your wireless router is solid or blinking green. It indicates a good connection and correct wiring.

When done, log in to the web interface of your router device and check if it can obtain the IP address from your ISP or not.

If you see 0.0.0.0, the router is not obtaining the IP address. It can happen due to various reasons. Contact your ISP and ask for the details including username, password for PPPoE etc. and try to connect to the Internet again afterwards.

You may also need to configure the default gateway settings also. To configure your router device as the default gateway, reboot your PC. When done, open Command Prompt, type 'ipconfig/all' and hit Enter. Check Default Gateway

If you are still unable to browse the Internet, ping your router's connection to the PC.

The Request timed out error can occur due to two things: (1). incorrect physical connection between your router device and the PC or (2) incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.

When done, check back if you can browse the Internet or not.

Was working ok then internet down and red light on router constant - have done the turn off turn on routine and reset router to no avail. have also plugged indirectly to computer - green light then comes...


Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

All lights for my Belkin N router are on except for the 'wireless light'. Also 'Security' light keeps on flashing. How do i fix this so that all lights are on?


Possible the wireless capabilitiy of your router is turned off and the security is turned off meaning that there is no security key in the router settings yet,

you will need to get in your routers default gateway check by going into the Dos Promp, type in IPCONFIG this will show you your IP address and default gateway type your default gateway in the address bar of your browser IE or Firefox ths should ask for a user name and password to get in your router the default user name will be admin and the password can be blank or password, or admin as well, depnds if your internet service provider change the password and user name of the router. once in the router check wireless settings look if the wireless is turned on the router and for the security just create a network security key to hav that light turned on if you want.

Xbox live on netopia router


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!

Hope this tip helps :) Tell your friends and ratings are nice. Just kidding, I just hope I helped.

No Line on US Robotics ADSL Wireless Gateway


Hi,

Initially what I suspect is that your USR's connection to your ISP is intermittent but with that of the USB modem is consistent. This is clearly an ISP issue and should be resolved by them.

One thing you can try is to verify the integrity of the line splitter that is commonly used to split the 2-wire signal to the telephone and to the modem/router. You can actually remove the splitter and connect the telephone line straight to the WAN/ADSL input of the USR 9106 Wireless Gateway and check if their is an improvement or if your ADSL and WAN IP will light up consistently.

Alternately, if your ISP is too busy to attend to your concern, you can try mimicking the USR's WAN settings to that of the USB modem's. While still using the USB (provided by your ISP) determine its WAN IP settings. This would be IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. You need to access the USB modem to get this data. Should you need detailed instructions, pls post back the make/model of the ISP provided USB modem. If you were able to gather the information. Connect your USR 9106 Wireless Gateway (Ethernet 1~4) to your PC using a LAN cable and enter its configuration page. In its WAN/ADSL settings, use the numbers gathered from the USB modem. You may need to do a full hard reset on the router (rear panel) prior to putting in the numbers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. If problem persists, pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2wire 2700 HG - Many problems and can't reset it!


you need to set up the 2 wire using an RJ45 ethernet cable and not wirelessly initially, and you need to set your ethernet lan adapter to obtain an ip address automatically and then type the default 192.168.1.254 in your browser to get in the settings and then set or enable dhcp, and also enable wireless as by default it is dissabled and check the the adsl light is lit

Some 2wire routers normally come with WPA-PSK security already set up with the passkey on a sticker on the side of the router, so that may be why it stays set when you reset it.

Check that your wireles adapter is using the same type of security when you enter the passkey when wirelessly connecting.

Actiontec wireless router


This is a Wireless Gateway not a router. Although the Actiontec website says that it uses NAT firewall like a router would.

If you do not get any green lights this usually means the wireless gateway is broken. Try plugging it into power but not the modem. Wait a few seconds. Are there any green lights?

If so, then the gateway is not configured correctly to work with your modem. You may have a smart modem. Call your ISP, for help.

If not, then it is probably a bad gateway. You can try to connect to the configuration web page that comes with the gateway. OR Power on the unit while holding down the Reset button for a minute. This will reset it to factory defaults.
