This is a little tricky technically it your printer isn't made to go onto the network, but you and do one of to things... let me start with the most cost effective way and that is

1. Hook your Printer up to a computer that is already on the network and then go into windows and SHARE that printer giving access to all the computers to print to it that you need to. I don't know what Operating System you have so your going to have to give more information to get clarification on exactly what you need to do in the Operating System to share the printer. The CONS of this approach is that you can only print to that printer when that computer is on. So if you want to have continuous ability to print to that printer you will have to keep your computer on.

2. You can get what they call a Print Server... and connect it to your printer and your network.. turning your printer into a network printer. Of course you might need to get more detail depending on what Print Server you choose. The Cons of this approach is that ofcourse your going to have to buy more equipment... but the pro's are you won't have to keep other computers on in the network to print to it. One last note you will find Print Servers in the store where you find Routers and Hubs.

The best of luck to you... and I hope this Helps... after you decide which way you want to go you might want to contact me or one of the other techs to get more percise approaches to installing your equipment... but we will need to know you Operating System, and the Print Server... if you go that route. Good Luck! I hope this works for you!!!

Sincerely,

I have the Gateway 2wirewireless-G modem and router, how can i connect another desktop in another room to it?


To connect your computer to your wireless network sammiller001_4.gif
1. Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. sammiller001_5.gif
2. The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays available networks. If you don't see your network (should be named something like 2wire), click Refresh network list in the upper left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower right corner. sammiller001_7.gif
3. Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. The key should be one of the numbers printed on the bottom of your 2wire modem/router. sammiller001_8.gif
4. Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key-click Cancel and return to step 3. After you're connected, you can close the Wireless Network Connection window. Now you're ready to browse the internet!

Trying to hook up DSI to AT&T 2701HG-B gateway to make it wireless


hi,
So you want to connect your Nintendo DSI to your 2wire modem.
Here are the steps for connecting you DSI wirelessly:
1. First you need to realize that the game console the requirements for the wireless password should be WEP.
2. Open the Nintendo DS setup Utility
3. Select the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
4. on the next page just click on the search for an access point.
5. then click on your wireless name.
(when you still using the default name for your 2wire it will be 2wirexxx "XXX last 3 numbers of the serial number of the 2wire modem")
6. when it is asking for the wep key it is the 10 numbers under the barcode of your 2wire modem.
7. Select No under Auto-obtain IP Adress.
8. click Save settings.
this is the steps on connecting your DSI for wireless connection.
If this doesnt work call At&t for connecting your DSI.
Thank you for choosing FIXYA.

I have a bigpond supplied 2wire wireless internet modem (2701HGV-W) which works seemlessly with my laptop running XP-sp2 for internet and email. Recently I purchased a Brother MFC 6890-CDW which offers...


Check if it's recognised on the local area network etc,make sure driver is installed and you may need to reset all pc,router etc to get connection.Now remember you need a router for this to work,with only a modem it will not function.You also need to restart all instruments etc before it's picked up by the router and the network..Google a bit and it will solve this.Make sure it uses wifi and not bluetooth as then it will need the right bluetooth connection to your pc..

2wire 2701HGV-W Gateway wi-fi modem


The 8200 by itself does not have networking capability.
This means that you cannot connect it directly to your router and give it an IP address, so others can connect to it.

The good thing is, that this printer is listed on the list for compatibility for upgrade with the wireless network kit (see here). The bad thing is - this kit costs about 70$ (see here).

A solution which does not cost anything, is to share the printer from your computer with the other computers. The downside is that the machine to which the printer is connected has to be running in order to let the others print.

If you decide to buy the Networking Kit - here are the setup instructions.

Sorry - but there is no simple (plug & pray) solution.
