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 just wanted to please help me, I had reset a 2Wire 2701HG-T and when i try to go into it is asking for a user and password, i had tried everything i can think but still cannot go into could you please...


Good day rmemi
Here is the link for the installation guide.
If you go to page 6 it explains that the network id and the password are based on numbers on the router itself.
a. The network name is the word "2WIRE" (in all capital letters), followed by the last three digits of the
gateway serial number.
b. The encryption key is a 64-bit hex value, located beneath the bar code on the bottom of the 2Wire
gateway.
If you use the page from the actual installation guide, it has a picture to explain the information you are pulling from. If for some reason this does not work for you, I would recommend hooking the router up to a/your computer directly to the router using an Ethernet chord. This way you should be able to bypass the user login information and can set up the wireless settings to your liking.
I hope this helps, have a great weekend rmemi.

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

Every time i try to play a online game my router goes out. how do i stop that from happening


What do you mean it goes out? if there is no power you need to get a new one, but if your refering your internet connection goes out. You need to call your internet service provider for opening the port for your 2wire. 2wire has its own firewall so you need to open it

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
