    yes, ATT, but not television. This is changing the wireless internet's name so when connecting it is a custom name, rather than the standard 2wire123 you see.

Is this an ATT U-verse and you have TV on a different box? if so you will need to contact them. If you had to have the router replaced they forgot to re setup the system as the two devices work off each other somehow.

SOURCE: Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem

I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...

How do I lock my Dell TruMobile 2300 wireless router to keep the neighbors from getting access to my wireless internet connection


press win key + r
under run type cmd
on the command prompt type ipconfig
not down your defaut gateway.
type it in your web browser, and then enter the correct user name and password for the router.(i u dont know the user name leave it blank or try admin for both user name and password or its combination o call dell for it)
Create a unique password on your router : Once you have logged into your router, the first thing you should do to secure your network is to change the default password* of the router to something more secure.
This will prevent others from accessing the router and you can easily maintain the security settings that you want. You can change the password from the Administration settings on your router’s settings page. The default values are generally admin / password.
Change your Network’s SSID name:
The SSID (or Wireless Network Name) of your Wireless Router is usually pre-defined as "default" or is set as the brand name of the router (e.g., linksys). Although this will not make your network inherently* more secure, changing the SSID name of your network is a good idea as it will make it more obvious for others to know which network they are connecting to.
This setting is usually under the basic wireless settings in your router’s settings page. Once this is set, you will always be sure that you are connecting to the correct Wireless network even if there are multiple wireless networks in your area. Don’t use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.
This is sufficient to secure your router from other to use it.

Change the display network name


I am not quite clear if you want to change the Network Name or the broadcasted SSID (the information a wireless client can see).
I would change both, so a client or someone who wants to connect to your network can't see right away that you have a Belkin router.

First log into your router's web interface.
http://192.168.2.1(default), password "admin", username "admin" (als default) or follow the instructions on the screen, if you have never logged in before.

To change the network name, click on "LAN Settings" in the left pane.
Under "Local Domain Name", you can specify a personal name for your network. (I would always change the default "Belkin" so something else.)

To change the SSID, click "Chanel and SSID" also on the left pane a little bit further down. Here you can make changes to the wireless network name (SSID), operating channel, and encryption security settings.

Don't forget to save any changes you made!

If you need a manual, you can find that here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Just had windows 7 put on my machine, but have lost my network please could u tell me which nmber(and there is a few on back of Belkin) is my network security key please


The default wireless network name/SSID is found underneath your router. It looks something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456. If you cannot see the SSID in the available networks on your wireless computer, then you might have changed it to a different name.

Use a computer that has connection to the router to access the setup page. Use a browser and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

Go to Wireless -> Channel and SSID. You can change the SSID to any name that you want. Then make sure that Broadcast SSID is checked. So that the computer will be able to detect the SSID.

For the network key, go to the Security tab. If WPA is set, copy the Pre-shared key. If you are using WEP, you will need to take note of the 10 digits (64bits) or 26 digits (128bits) wep key.

I hope this helps!

Attempting connection of a hp photosmart 7200 printer


What is the brand of your wireless router? Just make sure the SSID (signal's name) is configured on the wireless setting of your printer. They should have the same SSID configured. If the correct SSID is already configured on the printer's wireless settings, try to change the channel on your wireless router. Use channel 11. You can also try to do a power cycle. Turn off your wireless router and printer for about 1 minute. Power on router first, wait for the lights to stop blinking, then power on your printer.

Rating: 85%, 88 votes hi,
Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
2.The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
3.Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID is used. The SSID is your network name. The default network name of the Router is Belkin N1 Wireless followed by six digits that are unique to your Router. Your network name will look something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456.
You can change this to anything you choose, or you can leave it unchanged. Keep in mind, if you decide to change your wireless network name, and there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network name needs to be different from other wireless networks that may be operating in your area. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
4.Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels from which you can choose—in the United States, there are 11 and in the United Kingdom (and most of Europe), there are 13.
In a small number of other countries, there are other channel requirements. Your Router is configured to operate on the proper channels for the country in which you reside. The channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks.
Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
5.Using the Wireless Mode Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1) 802.11g only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
2) 802.11g & 802.11b
Setting the Router to this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.
3) 802.11n & 802.11g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
4) 802.11n only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.
5) Off
This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.
Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.
6. Using the Broadcast SSID Feature
Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only. For security, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.
The change is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific SSID; an SSID of ANY will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change

HOW TO RENAME MY BELKIN ROUTER


Using the WEB BASED INTERFACE.
Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (do
not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”) then press the
“Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.

Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service
Set Identifier) is used. The default SSID of the Router is “belkin54g”.
You can change this to anything you want to or you can leave it
unchanged. If there are other wireless networks operating in your
area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the “SSID” field (1) and click “Apply Changes”
(2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.

Change name


You would like to change the SSID to something else?

The SSID is the name that is broadcasted, the name that you see when you connect to your network.

  1. Log into the web configuration of your router at http://my.router, or the default address http://192.168.2.1. The Enter Network Password login prompt appears.

  2. Type the following text in the user name and password fields: "admin".


  3)
In the "Wireless" setup tab:

- Change the default SSID to something meaningful to you, but something that does not give anyone else any hints about your network. For example, using your name or your residence's street address as the SSID is not what you'd call a bright idea.
