You dont need a driver, open your web browser and type in the address bar and you will get into the router and add your settings manually, so long as your router is set up correctly

Can't re-install 2Wire USB Wireless adapter

If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at and install it.

I UPGRADED TO VISTA AND NOW I CANT GET MY 2WIRE PORTAL SOFTWARE TO INSTALL. IS THERE AN UPGRADE OR NEW SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ? ► there is no need to install the CD if ur trying to connect using an ethernet cable to the 2wire. If ur attempting a wireless connexn, u shud configure the wireless set up.

1000 SW (Model) for 2wire,Connects fine, intermittently the Broadband Link goes ORANGE and keeps me off Internet ► this is a possible line problem. Try plugging ur 2wire's phone cable directly to the phone/wall jack removing the filter or splitter in the process. Then see if the problem reoccurs. If it DOES NOT, replace ur filter with a new one. If it DOES reoccur or if it is already connected to the phone/wall jack directly, contact ur Internet service provider.

keep me posted on these...

Can i download the software for setting up my modem?

The only time you really need software to set up the 2wire is if you are going to the use the USB ports on the back of the 2wire. The 1000 series have wireless capabilities. Since you have a new laptop, it should have wireless capabilities.By default your network name should be 2wireXXX and the XXX is the last three of your SN. The network key for the 2wire is the 10 digit number that is in brackets

Hope this helps you

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet

sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?

2wire 2700HG - B

Log on to the routers interface and look for MTU size. Once you get there, reduce it to 1492. This will help.
