    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.

Reinstalling the wireless adapter


vista have this problem...

first, switch off computer and remove physically card from the computer, then de-install all possible traces of it, run ccleaner and clean the computer as well as registry.
go to d-link site and download newest drivers for your adapter, and os (vista). unfold software to c:/dlink

switch off computer again, re-install card and re-power the computer.

when automatic software install start, select manual install, point to newly created folder c:/dlink and select appriopriate driver from there, install.

this procedure usually solves the problem, vista try to instal generic windows drivers not specific hardware drivers, to prevent occurence of that, disable automatic updates in vista, and once a month or so, do only and only security updates from windows, never, ever update your hardware drivers from windows as these are just generic drivers generating more problems than solving. hope this help.

you dont need to install the driver for the 2wire, you just need to configure the computer to look for the 2wire, if unable to locate the 2wire from your computer, there is a problem on your 2wire it self

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.


I used this one:

Introduction
============
This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
============================
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
===============================
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.

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.

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.
