Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)
I was on line when my driver disappeared. My 2wire cd isn't working to reinstall the driver from it. I need to download the driver but I can't find it at the 2wire or the gateway site.
Do you know any place where I can download the missing driver and reinsert it into the program?

hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)

If you want to setup wireless network then......
you need to config your router for wireless network..
for that you need to open router configuration page or either you can run the disc you got with your router..
in that it gives you an option of wireless network..
it will ask you to type in a network name ssid give any name you wish to your network..
it will also ask you to type in a password for network...
choose wpa-psk security and type any secure password in 8to 63 charactersand apply and once it's done...
now if you're on windows xp then click start>then control panel>network connections>then rt click wireless network connections and click view available wireless networks there you'll find your network name ssid in it select it and press connect..it will ask for your 8-63 characters password type in the same press connect it will say connected..
unplug ethernet cable and try opening pages ie..
If you're on vista then click start>connect to>rest is same as above...

Go to http://gateway.2wire.net and click on the firewall icon. Click on firewall settings and, if prompted, enter your system password to reach the advanced settings page. select the computer that will function as the VPN server. In the left column, select PPTP server. click on Add, then done. or try changing the IP scheme to the 172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 schemes by accessing gateway.2wire.net, go to home network icon, then advanced settings. but if you manually configure or disable dhcp, be sure to write down the subnet mask & IP assigned to the 2wire then click on save. if all else fails, run it on DMZPlus mode, however this solution will allow all inbound traffic to the computer. if it still doesn't work on DMZPlus mode, the VPN is either using the same IP scheme, is using IPSec 50 or 51, or will not work with the 2Wire gateway.
