Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)

1 Answer

Connecting laptop to 2 wire

Ok...I have no idea what I am doing. I have a 2 Wire 1800HG Gateway router (or whatever it is called) this is hooked up to my desktop.....I have a Dell Latitude laptop that I would like to connect wirelessly to this router...how do I do that? I am completely stupid on this, so go slow. Do I need other equipment or do I need to just install something on the laptop in order to connect to the 2 wire?

First findout the IP address , subnet mask,and Gateway addresses of your ISP ( InternetService Provider ).To find out the above mentionedaddresses first open the control panel -> network connections -> local area connction -> properties -> Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPV4) OR Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPV6)according to your ISP -> Properties

By the systematic selection as mentioned above you will get the IP address, subnet mask and Gateway addresses. Kindly note the Gate way address of your ISP. Then enter the gateway address in the browser and open the window. Then a control panel / a window will appear. It will prompt you to enter 1). user name, and 2) password. If you are having the user name and passwords provided by your ISP , kindly enter them in the window and click to open. Then the particulars of Motorola SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router will be displayed in the window. Then click the wireless icon and click to enable.

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)

Check your router or the modem's settings. I had the same problem but when I tweaked with the modem, it worked.

Ipod touch connection using 2 wire 1800HG


not sure if the 1800hg is the issue log into the router and turn off the encryption temporarily then try to connect the ipod. if the router connects double check your encryption key. if not or it connects for a second and then drops may be the internal security for the router stopping the connection you may have to call 2wire to help you turn off some of the security to keep the ipod connected.

What is a 2 wire gate router


2 WIRE is a company that makes routers, Telus uses them to hook up television and internet.They don't appear to be any different unless you consider the fact that the ADSL modem and the router are combined into a single unit. All routers have a gateway IP, but its likely that a "gateway router" by definition may be just a router/modem combo, just a guess.

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?


try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.

If you can check you have DHCP and NAT enabled on you router and your laptop is configured for DHCP .Also try the following:
1.On command prompt type ipconfig /all
2.Check the IP address assign to your laptop do the same on your Pc and compare the IP.

3. If the IP is the same check your firewall setting. Assuming the IP is the same ping the Gateway IP .If this is successful the disable the firewall,The best way to try this is to disable the firewall temporary.
