Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

2Wire 1701HG Wireless Modem dead

My 2wire 1701HG modem is not working at all now. The modem has been restarting for the past two months, it's 2 years old.. We leave it on all the time, so I'm thinking it's power supply may have finally burned out. I'm expecting replacing the PS would be an inexpensive fix. Since this is a popular model, I wondered if anyone else had the same issue? Replacing the whole unit is more work then just a plug...

A friend gave me old 2Wire 1701HG wireless modem/router. It didn't come with power cord, cables etc. I found a 4.5V cord from old walkman that worked. Anyway, have ATT DSL service with speedstream 4100...


That would seem to be AT&T's favorite house brand...
Me thinks the SpeedStream was their SLOWEST
"DSL"

"2wire" was their next iteration of SLOW "DSL"

Yes... You will need to contact THEM ... or whom-so-ever is your INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (ISP)...

As I recall... the PRICE DIFFERENCE from one
service to the other was about $10 per month.

Give them your pirated modem number and they
will need to register it as a digital subscriber
in order for you to gain internet access.

Install 2wire 1701hg without installation CD


1. pull up browser(ie internet explorer)
2. type 192.168.1.254/setup or http://homeportal/setup in the address field. (click on i forgot my password if you forget it. then if you can't figure out the pw with the hint provided then go click on " i still forgot my password". you can then reset the system password)
3. setup your 2wire 1701 page, double check if key codes are there. it should be 522P-22P4-6262-22AT-F2NV
4. In time zone page, just choose the one then click next.
5. setup connection info page, just make sure the username is your primary email address with your ISP and also the correct password. fill out the username and password and confirm password fields ONLY then click next. And you're DONE!

you just have to wait till it successfully establish a connection.
if you're still having problem after doing that maybe twice or more then i suggest giving your ISP a call. they can also send you the 2wire cd if your ISP supports 2wire modem. AT&T does.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Two words:
I'm sorry.

My parents use satellite as their primary internet connection. We have had a heck of a time getting a router to work in their configuration because of the lag involved in the satellite communication. In a nutshell, but the time the data gets requested and sent back to your computer through the satellite your computer got tired of waiting and "times out" or give up on that data. You can try to purchase a wireless router and connect it up to the satellite modem and see how it works, but I wouldn't hold my breath (the best we've been able to do is get it work 1/2 of the time).

By the way because of the lag of satellite communication, online gaming with your PS3 would difficult, but not impossible. My younger brothers use my parent's connection for their Wii & Xbox.

I just with the ISPs would get on the ball and roll fiber to everyone's house. I have to say I love my fiber connection!

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.
