Question about 2wire Wireless-G 802.11g ADSL Gateway

1 Answer

Ethernet cable problem

I was prompted to connect the provided Ethernet cable from the Ethernet slot on the 2wire to the computer and there appears to be connection problems and just recently during AT&T setup the Ethernet light went off. I dont know if it affects this problem or not.

    hi...

    the problem will be either with the router or the cable that you are using..

    just try plugging in the cable in different port on the router as well as make sure that the cables is plugged in properly at both the ends the compute as well as the modem or you can try using a different ethernet cable.the light must be for ethernet which shows that there is connectivity between your computer and modem..it might be that the light is fused or something like that check the basic hardware and it should work..let me know if it connects to the internet

Can I set this up this wireless router if I have cable internet and not DSL?


You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.

Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
ipconfig -renew
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device

Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.

I don't know how to reinstall the linksys access point!!! Our wireless network that we made simply disappeared, so I'm trying to re-make one. However, when I tried that with a flash drive, it couldn't work...


T
o access the Access Points Setup, and the LAN IP address has not changed, then computer must have an IP address of 192.168.1.XXX. If the Access Point is plugged in via Ethernet to a Linksys Router and the computer is also connected a Linksys router via Ethernet, then the PC should already have a correct IP address (unless the LAN IP Address of the Router has been changed). If unsure, please assign the computer a Static IP Address so it will have an IP address in the same range as the Access Points IP Address.

If the Access Point is being connected to a hub/switch/router via Ethernet, then use the cable that was provided with Access Point. If the Access Point is being connected to the computer directly, then a Cross Over cable must be used. Cross over cables can be purchased at most electronic stores.
    Remember: When ever a change is made in the Setup of the Access Point, the Apply button must be used to save the settings to the Access Point.
  1. Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape)
  2. When the browser opens, go to the "Address" bar and input the IP address of the Access Point.
      Default IP addresses:
    • WAP11 v2.8 - 192.168.1.251
    • WAP54G v1.1 - 192.168.1.245
  3. A "User Name" and "Password" prompt will appear, leave the "User Name" field blank and input the Access Points password (The default password of a Linksys Access Point is admin) into the "Password" field.

How to change youre wire less pass word


You want to change the wireless password.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

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.

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service


It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.
