If your gateway is constantly rebooting this is a sign of hardware failure and you should speak with your ISP about a possible replacement if it is still in warranty.

Hi i have a 2wire gateway 2701HG-B modem I used for AT&T DSL internet. I moved to a location where I cant get AT&T. Is it possible to use this modem with centurylink for internet?


Hello, if centurylink is a DSL service, than you can use it for internet. It appears that Centurylink is a DSL service depending upon which service you get from them. In that case, you can use it for their service.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Computer won't recogniz 2WIRE 2701HG-B. Need drivers


The site says:

You do not need to install the 2Wire Wireless Client Manager if your computer contains a built-in client manager (such as Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista), which will work in conjunction with any 2Wire wireless adapters

If you have a driver un-install it and have windows find it for you. That is there recomendation. It says the driver disk they used to use was for the old operating systems.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

I bought a 2wire 2701HG-B from an individual. How


You will have to login to your modem's configuration panel. To access this, you will have to use a computer which is connected to the router via an Ethernet (CAT5) cable. Once you are at such a computer, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt (Or just go to Start>Run, type in: cmd
then press OK).

After Command Prompt loads, type in: ipconfig
Now press the ENTER key on your keyboard to execute the command. A list should be returned. You will want to locate the IP address associated with the, "Default Gateway." This is demonstrated in the screenshot located here.

Afterward open up your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc...) and type the IP address associated with the default gateway into the address bar. In the case of our previous example, you would type, "192.168.1.254" into the address bar (without the quotes and without adding www. or .com). Then press enter to visit the page. Your modem's configuration page should appear. You will want to click the link reading, "Run System Setup Wizard."

Afterward you might be asked to provide a password. If you don't have or know your password, try the default of blank. If that doesn't work you will have to call AT&T technical support for assistance in resetting the password.

Once you have reached the setup wizard you should be able to configure the modem to include the new registration information.

Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
