Re: wont connect to my wiresless (2wire with att)

Synbad, You are having the exact same problem I had with mine. Dikla's solution is only part of it. First, un-install D-links software and un-hook the modem cable from the 54G. Use the control panel use the add/remove programs link, look for the D-link software if its there. If not there should be an uninstall in it's drop down menu when you clink on it from the start up menu. Shut down with re-start. After you are back to your desktop, turn off your "wireless" connection on the computer if it has one. Re-install the D-link software. Follow their instructions very carefully. You'll be asked to power up your 54G first but not plug it into the computer. Make sure all the lites on the panel of the 54G are as they should be per the manual. Plug in the 54G when the software instructs you to do so. Not before that or the computer will not recognize it. After it has asked you to connect to the computer, it will ask you to open your browser. Remember you are not hooked up to the Internet and should not be. You will be instructed to type in an address something like *** or something simiular. That will connect you to the 54G. You'll enter "admin" and a password the manual gives you. Your manual gives all the rest of the instructions which are easy to follow. Only after you have successfully connected to the Internet do you begin to do any firmware updating. If that is done wrong you really have a problem so don't worry too much about that for now. This should fix it for you as it did for me. Let us konw how it goes. We are all here to help.

Ethernet (wired) connection to computer works but "wireless" light does not come on and my laptop cannot locate a wireless access point or network device. It has worked in the past but after...

You will need to get a hold of att. They will need to have you unplug the 2wire and then reconnect. They will need to reset the gateway from their end. good Luck.

How to set up uverse home network with 2wire gateway

To use AT&T Uverse for a home network, you need to get the AT&T "Homeview" Network Management software. AT&T provided this software in the past freely.

This software must be run on each PC on your home network, and then each PC can see the others. You then use go to My Computer, select each disk drive you want to share, right-click and select Sharing and Security, and select to share the drive. Then go on the drive to the folders you want to share and right-click and set them to be shared. Then the Homeview system will show these are shared folders. You can also share printers on the same network using the Homeview software.

Wireless laptop with can't connect to my 2wire

1st Look for a wireless network, it will be named 2wireXXX (XXX = the last 3 digits of the serial # on the bottom of the 2wire modem.) When it asks for a WEP or a security key, it will be on the bottom of the modem in between 2 bar codes and it will have [ ] around it, this should be a 10 digit #. If that does not work. I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password.
To get into the 2wire: Open a Internet window Address Bar Home network "At the top of the page" then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page" Then you are in the wireless config to change the information.
What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11. Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS

the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.

Acer Aspire One [xp can connect to wireless network

Solutions to the problem are varied, however most of the solutions found on the web just mask the problem by simply guiding the user through turning off this notification. Now this solution may work great for systems that are showing a false positive error, but what if the system genuinely has lost its local area connection or the connection is unstable, what then? window.google_render_ad();
1) Your Network or DSL router may have bad or missing information. Powercycle your router and/or rebuild the configuration in your router.
2) Double-check your cabling to the computer. Make sure you have the correct type of cabling, straight-through CAT 5 or possibly a crossover cable and try another cable or test the cable to make sure its working properly.
3) Check your network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. Many times setting the network card to 10Mbps/Full Duplex will solve this issue. To do this, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. Go to the properties of the Network card, click on the Advanced tab and find the Link Speed and Duplex section. Change it from Auto Detect to 10Mbps/Full Duplex.
4) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection. You may have to resolve the problem by even uninstalling and reinstalling the firewall.
5) Check your IP address assignments and workgroup settings in the computer for accuracy. Statically assign IPs to the computers in your network.
6) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.
7) Also this issue is relate to SP2 update (in that case you should run the Microsoft patch (KB884020) for it.)

Wireless router

What is the make and model of your router?

What type of internet access do you have (DSL or cable)?

Are you connecting the computer with a cable or via wireless?

If you have verified that the cable connections are correct then I would try to power cycle next.

1. Unplug the modem, router and turn off the computer.
2. Plug the modem in and wait 5 minutes.
3. Plug the router back in.
4. Turn the computer back on.

Let me know the details for the above questions if we need to go further.
