The Compaq part number 103710-001, oem Phihong PSC10A-050 has the same coaxial end and polarity which fits the 2Wire 2701HG-B. It is rated at 5.0 volts 2.0 amps, and so far it has worked on my 2701hg-b. You can google for the part number and find it, it appears to be an accessory for the IPaq series. You may be able to find something locally at a used electronics store, make sure it is a regulated power supply. I found a used Ault P/N PW15DEA0500F02 from Electronic Discount Sales in Arlington Texas (they have a web site), however I had to cut the end off this adapter and splice the end from the bad 2Wire brick so you should be good at working with cutting, splicing, and possibly soldering. That one was $15. It is rated 5 Volts DC at 3.0 amps so it may last longer than the Compaq adapter. It's also inline, like a laptop power supply, not a wall wort.

Somehow, I think that these items sold new for about $ 23-29.00 dollars. Find the computer junk sales place nearest you, take the unit with you and go over there and negotiate for the price of a working used one (these things don;t grow old). Another route is I have had good luck with them.

I want use my 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router without the dsl line

Modem and routers are considered only as access point you computer may be able to connect to your router but if you dont have a DSL line you will not be able to go on line... if you dont want a DSL line there are service that concentrates on wireless alone... in this DSL line are not required nor router but may provide you a USB wireless adapter that has their wireless service then again try calling an Internet Service provider for this options...

My 2wire has the power light red and the ethernet green and th wireless solid green and the dsl off and the internet off....what can i do

I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT for use with their DSL service. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at about 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

I need to purchase a power supply cord for 2wire 2701HG-B Wireless Modem?

This are the specs you are looking for:

Input Voltage: 100-240VAC (50-60Hz)
Output Voltage: 5.1 Volts DC (not more!)
Amperage: 2.5 Amps (not less!)

I saw an adapter online for about 10$. Look here.

Apparently you are not the only one experiencing problems with the power supply. See here.
Someone found a replacement:
"...I have noticed that the power supply/charger for the Sony PSP has an output of 5VDC/2A center minus (neg) plug, and the plug fits perfectly in the 2wire gateway. I bought one out of sheer desperation at the local game store and it only cost me $15."
Not bad!

Good luck!

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

2wire 2701HG-B got red light on power & green light on wireless

Issue that you have mentioned its very common among 2Wire modems. Most of the cases we have diagnosed Modem usually OK but the AC Adapter, AC adapter somehow comes from 3rd party with low quality production. Due to its circuit design internal heat dries up the DC output capacitors. So DC output comes up with ripple and it cause modem to not work properly. You may change the AC adapter or you can change its Capacitors. Same rate AC adapters will work fine. Just make sure polarization is right.
If Issue continues you may post for further diagnosis

Good Luck

2wire 2701HG-S Embarq to AT&T

that is typically a bad username in the modem, you will have to put there temp user name in for registration for the DSL. and after that you can put the username into the modem that you created during the registration process. Should be taken care of.

2wire gateway

The modem is a Gateway 2Wire model 2701HG-D. Its function is to handle the high frequency data carrier that rides on top of your ordinary telephone wires to provide internet access. It has four ethernet ports and one USB port in addition to the telephone connector. QWest has said there have been problems with it and they recommend that you purchase a newer model for $100.

Ours failed yesterday with a bunch of green lamps glowing steadily without the normal blinking. The lady was about to go downtown to purchase a replacement when I figured out how to open the box with its four springy plastic bending tabs that you can see looking through the cooling apertures.

What I found was an internal operating voltage of about 4 volts which was well below the 5.1V printed on the power brick. When I ran the modem from a laboratory grade 5 volt source it seemed to work drawing about 1 ampere without any connection to the phone line.

Measuring the 5 volt supply that came with the modem I saw 5.2 volts but when loading it to 100 milliamps or so it dropped to 4 volts. It was definitely out of spec. Replacing the brick with another brand rated at 5 volts, 2.2 amperes solved the whole problem.

A failing power supply usually turns itself off but in this case measuring its output with a voltmeter would result in a conclusion that it was OK. Not so. You have to measure it under load which is a bit harder to do.

So. . . Don't rush to buy that new modem the way QWest says. Consider a replacement power brick. Positive 5 volts on the center of the connector with 2 amp capability. The original power converter used a three pin grounding plug for the AC source and the ground was connected to the negative side of the DC output. That's not normally done and does not seem to be necessary. It would make more sense to connect to the telephone company ground but that wire may not be available in the 6 pin telco socket.

Part numbers on the failed power brick

P/N 1000-500031-000
Part No GPUSW0512000GD1S
Input 100-120Vc.a 50/60Hz 0,15A
Output 5.1V DC 2A
Class 2 Power Unit
Made in China

And. . . after cracking the shell of the power brick the input aluminum electrolytic capacitor showed typical deformation of the round aluminum end. That kind of failure is very much a part of my life these days. Sigh.
