Is it possible that you never changed the default wireless key? If you didn't, the number in '[ ]' brackets printed on the bottom label is the wireless key.

If you've changed that from the default when setting up your wireless network, you'll most likely have to reset your router.

Of course, if you do a reset on your router, you will also have to re-enter your DSL account / password in the router

  1. Choose a laptop or WiFi device that is currently connected to your network. If none of your devices are connected, use an Ethernet cable and connect a computer or laptop directly to your wireless gateway.
  2. Open a web browser and go to the Admin Tool (http://10.0.0.1) - this is the wireless gateway's administration site. The default settings are:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: password (case-sensitive)

    • Note: If you changed your Admin Tool password previously, you will need to use your new login information. If you don't remember your Admin Tool password, you will need to factory reset your wireless gateway. Instructions on how to do this can be found by reviewing the wireless gateway user guides at Wireless Gateway Guides.
  3. On the left navigation menu, select Gateway, then Connection and then Wi-Fi.

Open a Web browser and access the 2Wire gateway user interface by entering

http://gateway.2Wire.net.

Click the Home Network tab.
Click the Wireless Settings link to open the Configure the Wireless Network page.
On the Wireless Security section select custom key ,enter new key and then click on Save at the bottom of the page.

By the way the default /current password is underneath the router.

My computer is connecting via The Crazies...whatever that is! I don't have or remember my security code for ATT 2Wire connection. Where did The Crazies come from and do I want to get rid of it?


It sounds like "The Crazies" is a wireless network near you that someone had used to connect to the internet using your computer. To connect to your own network, look under the router/modem itself near the barcode. There should be a few sets of numbers there. You'll want to enter the code in that is in brackets [ ] (should be under the serial number) into your computer when connecting to your network. That should do it, but let me know if you have any other questions!

I don't remember my network key,so I cannot use it


Try to connect you computer with an Ethernet cord. If the Internet is working check the default gateway of the computer by typing "ipconfig" on the command prompt. Type the default gateway on the address bar. There you will see the login page for your wireless router. Check the default username and password from the router's manual and enter it. If it accept the user name and password, look for the wireless settings, password should be seen there. If not create a new one. If default user name and password doesn't work reset the router. There should be a reset button or pinhole on the back of the router. Press and hold it for 10seconds. Try again typing the default gateway on the address bar then re enter the default user name and password. If it work your router now do not have a network key (unsecured). You can create a new network key on the router's configuration page.

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.

You need a wireless router for you to use Wireless connection

I recommend DLINK, Belkin or Linksys router any of those will work.

you can still use wired connection because router has 4 ports for wired connection but if you prefer to use wireless then you need to buy USB wireless network adapter.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
You said that it works only with the ethernet connection but not with the wireless connection.
