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

Cannot connect to web.


Follow this steps
1. Connect the provided power adapter from the gateway's POWER port to an electrical outlet. The POWER light on the front of the gateway should be green. 2. Connect the provided gray phone cable from the gateway's PHONE LINE port to the DSL filter jack labeled DSL/HPNA. 3. Connect the yellow Ethernet cable provided with the gateway from the LOCAL ETHERNET port on the gateway to your computer's Ethernet port
With your computer completely started, verify the POWER and ETHERNET indicator lights on the front of the 2Wire gateway are green. If they are not, see "Understanding the Indicator Lights" on page 15. The INTERNET indicator light will not turn green until the gateway software has been installed and an Internet connection has been established.

No ethernet connection on my computer thats hooked up directly to the 2wire router. how do i acquire ethernet connection?


My guess is that the 2wire router has a DTE plug and a DCE plug. The DTE plug is meant to plug in to your DSL modem, while the other plugs are meant to plug into computers.
If you move the plug, it might work, assuming you have an upstream and downstream connection on the router.
Failing that:
Make sure the cable is an ethernet cable and not a phone cable,
Make sure the wires are run straight through. If it is a crossover cable, it might be meant to connect a DTE to a DTE without a hub, and it won't connect a computer to a router port.
Try a different cable.
Try a different computer (borrow one, etc.)

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.


That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

Need to connect another tower to the 2 wire modem to work fr home


To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.

If you connect with an ethernet cable, you don't need any additional drivers at all. You just need to have a browser connected to »192.168.1.254/ and a product key. The 2Wire has a built-in wizard which you can access with the browser, and it will guide you through the setup. The product key is obtainable from a number of sources, including the 2wire web site, although you should look to your ISP's web pages first if they provided the 2Wire.

If you don't have an ethernet adapter on your computer, you might want to consider purchasing one of those inexpensive ethernet cards. Ethernet seems to have a lot fewer problems than the USB route.
