Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
Im using a 2wire 1000hw modem. this one doesn't have a reset button. the problem is, all the lights are green (w/c means my dsl is working, right) but I cannot connect to the internet. I try to access set up page with 172.16.0.1 but im getting a "internet explorer cannot diplay webpage" on the browser. I tried to reinstall 2wire. Also called tech support and on the telephone for 2 hours with them. They asked for the SN # at the bottom but still they cannot reset my router. Im getting an IP that starts with a 209.154... something which I know is wrong. We tried to force the IP to the 172.16.0.1 but to no avail. We also tried to renew & release DCHP thru ipconfig command... still no good. I didnt want to buy a new modem because I believe something can still be done with my 2wire... Pls help me! Im getting frustrated and disappointed!
I still have a problem. I did all that. Even typed in the default gateway which is 2188.8.131.52
I got replies from ping. Lost = 0 (0% Loss).
I still cant go to the home page.

The fact that you receive an IP starting with 209.154.. could also coming from the fact that the DHCP server inside your 2wire has a problem or that your 2wire changed some setting.
I would like you to open internet explorer and put the following address:
If the above address doesn't work, press Start, Run, type cmd and press enter.
At the prompt type ipconfig /all and confirm that the Default Gateway has an IP address similar to 172.16.0.1 or something else; if there is no value means that there is no communication with your router and we have to verify the hardware.
If there is an IP address on your Default Gateway, try to ping it by typing ping xx.xx.xx.xx change the xx with your Default Gateway IP address.
If you are not getting any reply means that the router doesn't communicate again, if you see some reply means that you can probably access to your router by opening internet explorer and entering the following http://xx.xx.xx.xx where xx is your Default Gateway address again.
Please let me know up to where you can get some result and then we will continue from there.
