    I have the exact same problem. My ThinkPad works flawlessly in the same location simultaneously but, my HP desktop running vista cuts out intermittently. The solution, unplug the usb from the pc or unplug the adapter from the usb cable. After anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or so I hear a windows system sound indicating the device was unplugged, then when I plug it back in viola – it reconnects until next time.

Log into your 2Wire by typing homeportal into your browser if that doesnt work use 192.168.1.254 then click wireless settings
Change your channel from 6 to 10 then power setting to 10 at the bottom

I would suggest increasing the wireless power on your router or change the wireless channel.

SOURCE: 2wire dropping xp pc

I am wondering if it is a heat solution or problem with the modem/router. I have had to replace several of these combo units in people's homes as they seem to fail without warning and then go crazy (constantly rebooting itself, etc). Not sure since the user did not say, but the 2wire units from SBC/AT&T/Embarq that I have encountered are basically modems with the router and wifi built-in, thus making it difficult to check the modem by bypassing the router

SOURCE: 2Wire USB 802.11g adaptor on XP: drops wireless periodically

Possible Solution:

  1. Login to the gateway's Management and Diagnostic Console: http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc
  2. Go to Wireless under Local Network
  3. Change Maximum Connection Rate to 11Mbps
  4. Save by clicking Submit
It worked for me. My connection was fine on one computer, but would drop out several times an hour if my other computer was connected. It's been fine for a couple of hours now. Finger crossed.

First look in device manager and verify that the network adapter is enabled, if so you can try disabling it then shut down and reboot the PC.
Once booted, go back into device manager and enable the network adapter.
Run the software that came with your router and follow the steps provided.
Make sure your network cable from your router is NOT connected untill instructed to do so.
You will need to have the network cable from your modem connected to your PC for the router software to detect network connection.

Good luck, I hope this helps.
Have a nice day.

Can't re-install 2Wire USB Wireless adapter


If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=download and install it.

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

Computer will not recognize device nor install it even with drivers


http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080920105307AA64UOr

seems we do need signed 64bit drivers within hardware. Since our old or current adapter doesn't have it, meaning we would need a new adapter that has it. I think the problem with 2wire and other ISPs using their products is that they don't reveal specific model names, numbers, etc on each to help us recongize what we need.

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.

2wire pc adapter


If you go to the 2Wire site you will see that only 3 of the seven adapter products listed there have Vista drivers.

If you have one of the Vista supported products, make sure you have the Vista driver.

If you do not, get one that is.

Can't connect to internet with 2wire PC port


yes U R right. this is most probably a "Driver" problem. You could try installing the software in "Administrator Mode".. with "Compatability Mode" set for XP. If this doesn't work.. then ya may have to try to contact the manufacturer and ask for a compatable driver for Vista.
