If you log into your router/modem you shuld be able to enable mac filtering add the mac address's you simply want to have access and they will be denied, alternatively you can turn off the dhcp so your router doesnt assign them access - either will work but i prefer the mac filtering.

ipconfig /all in a dos box will display mac address.

How to get my 2wire ip number


There is a problem: you are connected on LAN side of the modem, so your IP is privat and are not visible in the Internet. It?s like 192.168.x.x .On the WAN side you have another IP that's could be public: 5.35.85.x .To see the public IP use a specific web site like: http://pingme.info/

Dynex tv won't give me the option to connect to a wireless network. It defaults to wired


This would normally indicate either a compatibility problem, the wireless network is not broadcasting, or you do not have enough signal to see the network. First thing I would try is most devices that can connect to WiFi have the option of connecting to a network that is not listed. I would try that. If that still does not work I would then try disabling all wireless security on the router just to see if that will work(I do not recommend leaving the security disabled any longer than it takes to test this). If none of that works then the next thing would be to check the signal. If you have a laptop, tablet, or cell phone that is connected to your wireless network then bring it over to the tv. If you loose signal, or have low signal then you will need to find a way to get more signal. Even if you do not see low signal on other devices the tv can still have too low signal partly because the antennas are usually in the back where the signal would be blocked by the tv as well as any other equipment you may have around the tv. Try to make sure that there are no metal objects between the tv and the router, and if possible try to get the router as close to directly behind the tv as possible. The more walls the wireless signal has to go through the weaker the signal will be, and metal can reflect the signal, completely blocking it, as well as causing noise on anything near the metal.

I need to find my att dsl internet security key to sign on wireless my moden is a 2wire 2701hg


Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.aka security key
?

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

  4. Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you want to change to a custom WEP key.

    64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (For example, 123456789A is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)

    128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

    64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example, GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption)

    128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

I have a 2wire modem from att. i made a 50 foot eathernet cord, i have a eathernet transmitter teaster to test the cable to see if it is good (and it is) but i still cant get internet on the other side of...


Try with a shorter enet cable and see if you get internet, if you are able to get internet with a shorter cable then the cable might not be working fine. Else get a wireless card installed on your computer since the 2wire modem has wireless connectivity. It would be more easy and convenient to connect to wireless using the 2 wire modem.

My 2wire has the power light red and the ethernet green and th wireless solid green and the dsl off and the internet off....what can i do


I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT for use with their DSL service. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at about 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

2701HGB modem - dsl light flashes red


if all the lights on the modem are Green then it means there's no prob with the hardware. just make sure that you're going to use the right WEP key or wireless password. the network name is 2wirexxx, the X is the the last 3 numbers of the SN which can be found on the bottom of your 2wire 2701HG-B.make sure that your wireless switch is also turned on of course. the wireless light on the modem will lit if it is connected
