Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)
I frequently lose my connection temporarily, even as the wireless indicator has its usual three arcs of signal. I can often bring connectivity back by turning Airport off and back on. Rebooting the 2wire will usually bring it back. Rebooting the mac often works too. But why should I have to do this? Some application work can be lost (e.g, I'm typing this from memory for the second time because the connection went out, and when I got this window back there was no text in it). And besides, it's maddening.
I've made several calls to my provider AT&T. They have me check my settings, reboot the 2Wire, and reboot my system, and of course I'm connected. They think the problem is fixed, but it's not. The disconnects continue after a while.
One AT&T person had me use the 2Wire setup wizard from a mac connected to the 2wire via ethernet. It can't connect to the "configuration server" so that part of it fails, but a message says it's OK, and so did the operator in frustration. I'm still having this problem
I'm on a mac PowerPC G4 running Mac OS X 10.5, but this problem was also present when I was using OS X 10.3.9
I ran into the same problem using xp my solution was that 2wire uses filters on other conponents in your home make sure the filters are on the right way for anything connectint to the phone lines k if you phone is connected straight to the phone lines then you will get this kind of trouble
