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

Open Question

Cannot connect to ethernet using 2 wire router

Suddenly I get a red light and a green light for wireless only (no light for the ethernet connection). Of course the wireless won't work since I can't connect to the ethernet. I've read some of the other questions and I'm guessing you're going to tell me I need to buy another router. If that is true, I guess I'll shop around and look for another internet provider (and I guess new phone service - I'll get a better deal if I bundle somewhere else).

I'm not very happy with AT&T. The internet locks up and I have to re-start. Although the speed is somewhat faster than dial up, the screens don't load very quickly. Due to the slower than desirable speed, some screens never load and I get an error message. I think we're paying to much for crappy service - especially if we have to buy a new router!

Cannot connect to 192.168.1.1 to set up wireless in my router


If you fail after ping your IP address then it may be problem in your physical connection,so you should check connection like:

check cable modem status light. If it is solid green, it indicates that your cable modem has a good connection. If the light is off, check modem's physical connection.

Verify that the Internet light on your wireless router is solid or blinking green. It indicates a good connection and correct wiring. If the light is off, check the Ethernet wire's connection between your modem and router.

May be it can be cause of Incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.

How many lights should be on my westell model327w?


b2f0922.jpg
The Westell has several lights on the front that have various meanings

Power = When lit, this light indicates there's power to the router. It should be solid green.

Ethernet = When lit, this light indicates that the modem is communicating with your computer. This will be on only if you're using the Ethernet cable to connect the modem to your computer

Wireless = When lit, this light indicates that the wireless function of the Actiontec is working. This will only be lit if you're using the wireless function.

DSL = When lit, this light indicates the modem is speaking to the central office (phone company). When working, the light should be solid green.

Internet = When blinking, this light indicates that you're receiving information i.e., you're able to browse from site to site. This light will be blinking as you're receiving information.

My router is suddenly not working. The internet, modem, router and the wired lights are on, but the wireless and security lights aren't on and I can't connect from my laptop wirelessly.


check the wireless settings of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router.
if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

Modem light is red won't stay green.


Make sure to configure the router according to your ISP settings. I believe you have a DSL connection. That means you need to configure the router using PPPoE

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

2wire 2700 HG - Many problems and can't reset it!


you need to set up the 2 wire using an RJ45 ethernet cable and not wirelessly initially, and you need to set your ethernet lan adapter to obtain an ip address automatically and then type the default 192.168.1.254 in your browser to get in the settings and then set or enable dhcp, and also enable wireless as by default it is dissabled and check the the adsl light is lit

Some 2wire routers normally come with WPA-PSK security already set up with the passkey on a sticker on the side of the router, so that may be why it stays set when you reset it.

Check that your wireles adapter is using the same type of security when you enter the passkey when wirelessly connecting.
