Problem with 2wire adaptor connecting to Avenue Broadband

I had DSL and switched to Ave Broadband, but am using my old 2Wire router adaptor. Sometimes it works - sometimes it doesn't and I get an error that it can't connect to DSL. Are there settings I need to change?

    Thank you! Can you please advise as to where to reconfigure? I did reset the router (several times since changing actually). Thanks again for the help!

Yes, The DSL connection and Broadband connection are different with each other.

You'll needing to reconfigure the router as Dynamic and clone the MAC address so that it will recognize to the network.

- Try resetting the router and reconfigure the settings of your router.

    - Connect the modem to the WAN/Internet of the router
    - Connect one of your computer to port LAN to the router
    - Access an Internet page assign this IP address 192.168.1.1 on the web address (I'm not sure for the IP of your router either 192.168.1.254)
    - Then for connection type choose dynamic IP (DHCP) Click clone MAC address (Save the settings)
    - Then set the wireless network for WPA-Personal (Create a password there) (Save the settings)
    - Check the IP address to the status under WAN section (If you have the IP there it means that your connected to the Internet)

Unable to connect to home ATT 2wire with new Belkin USB wireless


AT&T 2Wire routers function as both routers and modems. You can disable the router functionality by placing the router in bridge mode. In bridge mode, the 2Wire device functions only as a modem and forwards all incoming traffic to the device behind the 2Wire router. For example, you can use a different router instead of the 2Wire's built-in router by enabling bridging mode -- the router behind the 2Wire device will get the external IP address, and the 2Wire router won't interfere.
Step 1Type "Homeportal/management" (without quotes) into your Web browser's address bar and press "Enter" to access the Management page in the 2Wire router's Web interface.
Step 2Provide your 2Wire router's custom password, if you set one. The router comes with no password set.
Step 3Click "Configure" under Broadband on the Management page.
Step 4Type a period (".") into the "Disable PVC Search" box.
Step 5Set the value of the "VPI" box to "0" and the value of the "VCI" box to "35".
Step 6Set the "Connection Type" to "Direct IP" and click "Submit."
Step 7Click the "Configure Services" link on the Management page.
Step 8Uncheck "Enable Routing" and click "Submit."

I had ATT DSL w/ a linksys wireless router. I was


So, both computers are on the lan segment of 2wire? How many lan ports on 2 wire? Can you do ipconfig from the command line on both computers to see what the addresses are? In most cases, the first 3 octets xxx.yyy.zzz.### should be the same. If not, then 2wire is configured for vlan and the computers are actually on different lan segments & cannot communicate with each other.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot is to ping each other's address.
You have to first establish there is communication between the 2 systems before troubleshooting further. Otherwise, you could be wasting a lot of time.

That won't work because your old sbc wireless router 2wire gateway is also a modem. You need a plain router for Time Warner. Try Linksys router.

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.
