Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Wireless light is not on. Have ethernet however.

I'm trying to get a laptop and a nintendo wii some wireless internet. When i had initially set up the modem, i had wifi access on my wii for a brief period, however, i have been unable to locate a wifi access point/wireless gateway for the laptop to connect to. I have spoken with the technicians over the phone and they were unable to solve my problem. they did refer me to some technicians that were fee based. so i guess money solves the problems eh? anyhow... I am able to put this up through my ethernet :)
any help is greatly appreciated.

    laptop. both computers (laptop and desktop) are running xp sp2. sorry i
    think i left the first computer out of the equation. desktop is running
    fine since its an ethernet cable.

    I have the same problem as well. Except, my desktop is running WinXP sp3; and

    Laptop #1: running WinXP sp3

    Laptop #2: Mac Leopard OS Ver 11.



    Neither laptop will connect wirelessly. Wireless cards on both laptops are "on" and able to connect to other Wi-fi networks. Wireless light indicator does not light up, despite reset. Please help! Thx.

Please make sure that the wireless switch is turned ON in your laptop so that it may be able to use the wireless connection. please also inform me what is the operating system for your laptop so that i may be able to help you further if the first solution was unsuccessful.

    Do not know how to connect my Wii dance to our internet server as it says is necessary.


    Wii connects to the internet via wireless 802.11 just like a laptop, so as long as you have a wireless router you can connect.

    How to identify security type on my belkin wireless router relative to nintendo wii security type options

    These 2 security types will works with WII. If you put WEP,then 10 digit number will be the security code.
    To change the security on the wireless network, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

    Nintendo wii will not connect to my new d-link dsl2640r router


    To connect the Nintendo Wii to your wireless router, the following settings must be set to the router.

    *Wireless Network Name (SSID) - must be one word
    *Wireless Encryption/Security - must be WEP
    *Network Mode - must be Mixed

    Open your router's admin page using Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.0.1 and type your router's password. By default username is admin and password leave it blank.

    When you get to the router's setup page, look for wireless tab then change the Wireless Security Mode to WEP 64-bits/10 Hex digits. Type in any 10-digit hexadecimal key on Key 1, then save your settings. You should remember the 10-digit key because you'll going to use it on your Wii settings.

    On your Wii settings, try to reconnect to wireless network then type in your 10-digit key. That should do it.

    Belkin F5D5231-4 - create a wireless access point


    I have had good luck with the NetGear Rangemax WPN824. It has multiple antennas that are supposed to provide better range, and your kids will like the blue blinking lights.
    http://www.netgear.com/Products/RoutersandGateways/RangeMaxWirelessRoutersandGateways.aspx

    Nintendo has a list of incompatible wireless routers:
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineWirelessRouterIncompatible.jsp

    and the Rangemax is not incompatible.

    Wii can use 802.11B or G.
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/onlineWirelessRouterChoose.jsp

    Since the Rangemax is both a wireless access point and a router (with 4 ethernet ports), you can just replace your existing router rather than plugging this router into your other one.
