Question about 2wire HomePortal® 1800HW Router (1000400212000LNR)

1 Answer

I have a 2Wire Homeportal that was supplied with my SBC (now AT&T) DSL connection. I have two computers that work great with it both connected and wirelessly--no problem. However, I recently purchased an HP C4580 wireless Photosmart All-in-one printer because I want to be able to put the printer in another place than the laptop. I tried to connect the thing to my router as per directions and got an error message on the printer (Power off and turn on again). I could not make the printer do anything. Took it back thinking the printer was defective. Got another one--spent the day on phone with HP tech support with 3 different people who could not get it to work. On a whim, I unplugged my router and low and behold the printer worked great. The proble is between the router and the printer. Has anyone else had this problem?

It is your firewall I am betting. Quick fix since it is just a printer you can set your firewall on tmz just for the printer and see if that helps.

Oh my ... This is a question where I dont have to ask for more information.

Pleae connect your desktop to the router using a Cat 5 ethernet cable. I'm not a fan of USB connection for networks ... Ethernet works so much better. Do this even if you have to add a NIC to your computer.

You may find some benefit from using Network Magic, free to download and evaluate. You may like it as much as I do and pay for full extended use NM can perform all your network administrator duties. (I have 5 interconnected networks in my house that connect more than 20 computers)

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Cant get the broadband link up


The picture looks like it is a 2wire DSL modem. If this is service from AT&T/SBC you should have gotten filters to put between the phone and the wall jack make sure those are installed. Power off the 2wire modem ( unplug power )Then disconnect all computers and routers you may have from the 2wire router. Plug one computer in to the router then turn on the computer first then plug the power back into the 2wire router. Wait and see if you get an uplink. If not go to this webpage http://homeportal.gateway.2wire.net
The password is probably on the serial number sticker on the 2wire.

Once you are there click on Broadband Link icon. If it says connected you are good to go. If it does not then call the internet provider for registration of 2Wire router to the service

2WIRE HomePortal 1800HG Router constant disconnecting


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM , had to contact 2wire directly via email, they were really helpful and solved the problem, this is the email they sent me:
"Thank you for contacting 2Wire Customer Support. The following is intended to answer your inquiry:

In order to properly diagnose this issue, I was hoping you could provide me with some information. How many computers do you have connected to the HomePortal? How are they connected (Ethernet, USB, Wireless or HPNA)? Who is your broadband service provider? If your service provider is SBC?

Second, make sure that all devices that connect to a phone jack in your house that are on the same phone number as the DSL line have filters on them and are plugged into the phone side of the DSL filter. If the phone cord that connects the HomePortal to the wall is not plugged directly into the wall (plugged into a filter, surge protector, fax machine, etc), plug it directly into the wall. Also, check the phone cord and verify that it is no longer than 12 feet. If it is longer than 12 feet long, switch it out with a shorter phone cord and see if the problem replicates.

Third, I need you to access your HomePortal's Management and Diagnostic Console (MDC). You can do this by going to one of the following web addresses while you actually have an Internet connection:

http://home/mangement
http://homeportal/management
http://gateway.2wire.net/management

Once in the MDC, I need you to reply with your serial number and current software version, which can be located under the "System" section on the main page. Next, click on the "Statistics" link on the left side under Broadband Link. I want you to copy and paste the entire ATM and DSL sections into your reply. Also, copy and paste the entire ATM and DSL sections from the "Detailed Statistics" section under Broadband Link into your reply.

Once the above information has been supplied I will have a more accurate idea as to what could be causing your loss of connectivity.


If this response has not answered your question or resolved your issue you may visit our support Website at http://support.2wire.com or reply to this email."

After i sent everything they asked me for, i got an e-mail saying that there was an update available for me trough my portal configuration system ( the UPGRADE THE SYSTEM "view available updates" section)

, and the problem was solved, this was about two years ago, but believe they can still help

My SBC 2Wire modem (yellow light) in the middle between the green lights goes on and off. Intermittent....


The middle light is the light for internet services. If it is flashing that means its looking for a dsl signal, if its solid orange that means it needs authentication information (IE: username/password entered into it) and if its solid red that means you have no signal at all. What I would recommend is first check all the phones/alarms/satelite dish systems in your house and make sure they all have dsl filters on them before plugging into the wall, since this will cause an intermittent dsl connection. If everything is fine then call your Internet Provider and have them do some line tests for you to see if the service is having problems.

My sbc yahoo dsl installer has a crack can I install any other way.


Yes, you can. The setup I have seen most often uses what they call a "2Wire HomePortal".

Set the hardware up and make all the connections as instructed in the setup materials from SBC Yahoo (It's really quite simple: the phone line from the jack with the filter provided plugs in the phone line jack on the "Home Portal"--a simple router often called a DSL "modem"--and the ethernet cable into the other port on the "HomePortal" and into the RJ-45 jack on a computer)

Go to https://sbcreg.sbcglobal.net in the web browser of your choice. Note: it is an httpS address. The "s" is important.

If the web page comes up, simply follow the instructions on the page to establish an account.

If you don't get a registration page, try http://support.sbcglobal.net/register and follow the prompts.

NOTE: make sure the "HomePortal" router is easily acessible, because you will need its serial number duringh the process. The process MAY also establish a "temporary" login that you will have to replace with a permanent one.
