If it is yours then the network password will be printed on the side of the wireless modem/router. If it is your neighbors then your outta luck unless they give you the password.

Open a Web browser and access the 2Wire gateway user interface by entering

http://gateway.2Wire.net.

Click the Home Network tab.
Click the Wireless Settings link to open the Configure the Wireless Network page.
On the Wireless Security section select custom key ,enter new key and then click on Save at the bottom of the page.

By the way the default /current password is underneath the router.

Connecting to a "2WIRE" wifi connection. Says the


Hi,

I understand that you are having trouble connecting your Nintendo DS wirelessly to your 2Wire router. The solution is simple, your Nintendo DS only supports WEP (Wireless Encription Passkey) security. It is highly possible that your 2Wire router's wireless security is set to WPA. That means you will need to reconfigure your router so that it will be utilizing WEP as a security for your wireless connection. To be able to do this, you need a couple of information from the one who setup your router. 1. User name of your router 2. Password or your router.

Once you have gotten this information, you will need to access your router configuration page through one of the computers that is linked to your 2Wire router by typing http://gateway.2wire.net on the address bar of your browser.

It will be asking you for the username and password. If nobody had setup or changes the username and password of the router, use this default username and password of a 2Wire router. Username: (none) Password: Wireless or Username: 2Wire and Password: (none). Try any of the two. If it does not work, try admin and the word password for the password or any other combinations of the two.

Once you have entered the router's configuration page click the Home Network Tab and then click on Wireless Settings. You will see there a portion that says Wireless security. In that area, you will see a drop down where you can choose what kind of wireless security you want on your system. As I have said, the Nintedo DS does not support any other wireless security setting but WEP. That means you will need to change the drop down to WEP. That also means after changing this, you will need to reconfigure your other wireless devices (like your laptop) to use WEP as well.

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:
  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.

How can i get a keycode


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

I have reached the point in setting up ROKU where I am advised on screen to "enter your security info". Where can I find that on the AT&T 2wire modem?


Hi,

I believe that you have setup WEP/WPA encryption key to network, please contact your service provider to know the security key.

Switch from WEP to WPA wireless protocol


First have a computer directly plugged into the 2wire

Using windows xp: click on start> then run> then type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Skip the vista section if you are using xp
Using Windows Vista: click start> then click on the search bar and type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Once you find the gateway address, you now have the website address you need to get to your 2wire. Open internet explorer and type that default gateway address in the address bar.

This should take you to a 2wire homepage. At the top click on the "home network" or "local network" tab at the top.
Once there, click on the wireless network link at the top. It will prompt for a password, if you do not know the password, click I forgot for a hint. Click I still cannot remember if the hint doesn't help, it will ask for a system key, which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the 2wire.

After entering the password you will be in the wireless settings window where you can change the security type to any available that the 2wire has, if it doesn't have it available call the provider and see if they have a firmware upgrade available.
