Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)

1 Answer

1800HG DSL modem/router: Cannot access any of the setup pages.

My 1800HG powers up just fine, and the 4 ethernet ports function properly as a home network. The device worked just fine about 2 months ago before I moved. I have changes ISP's and in order to make the dsl part of it work I need to access the various setup pages within the router/dsl modem. I cannot though. Every different page I enter that is supposed to take me to the options simply loads a blank page;
192.168.1.254
http://gateway.2Wire.net
http://gateway.2wire.net/setup
http://homeportal/setup
homeportal/setup/cdless.html
homeportal/management

There are no other devices connected to the 1800HG. Just my PC, the power cord, and the DSL phone line. The DSL light will flash green then turn solid orange and stay that way. How can I access my options page?

    Well almost every time, it's one of these 3 numbers. 192.168.0.1 192.168.1.1 192.168.2.1 Try those and the password is usually "admin" If those don't work then go to Start>Run>Cmd then type: ipconfig look for the default gateway, enter that number into you browser. Should do the trick.

My computer mouse and keyboard not functioning well. I replace the keyboard but only last a month.


Hi jhunix,

I'm going to need even more information; The devices that use PS2 connections, which device is it, and how many of those devices do you have?

One thing that might be a problem, if the issue you see is intermittent, I would check the PS2 connector and see if the pins are bent or broken. PS2 connector pins sometimes will bend or break and this can cause some connection issues if not completely stop the keyboard/mouse from working... Also given the age of your PC the PS2 port may just be bad, but this is not a fatal injury to a computer.

Replacing the Keyboard and Mouse with a standard USB keyboard and mouse, should resolve all of your issues.

PS2 is an older technology that keyboards and mice used to run on; Now however USB connections are used.

Further more, if this an HP Desktop with 2 USB ports on the front, and 4 USB ports on the back, you will want to avoid using the 2 USB ports on the front, especially on older HP and Dell Desktops, the reason is the power supplies often do not have enough power to run multiple USB devices on the front USB ports.

The back ports should be fine regardless of the number of devices.

Hope this helps.

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

Oh my ... This is a question where I dont have to ask for more information.

Pleae connect your desktop to the router using a Cat 5 ethernet cable. I'm not a fan of USB connection for networks ... Ethernet works so much better. Do this even if you have to add a NIC to your computer.

You may find some benefit from using Network Magic, free to download and evaluate. You may like it as much as I do and pay for full extended use NM can perform all your network administrator duties. (I have 5 interconnected networks in my house that connect more than 20 computers)

Thanks for using FixYa.com

It won't assign an IP number why


It isn't a router, and so never will, as it can't... It has no idea!
This is what you have: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_switch
This is what you need to get assigned a Private IP address thus creating a home network. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Residential_gateway
Enjoy.

1. Try different cable if possible.
2. Check the network port of the laptop. Make sure the pins are in tact and there is no dust/dirt or anything blocking the port.
3. Verify the other end as well. Check the hub/modem/switch or whatever you are plugging into. Make sure it's securely plugged in.
4. If plugging into a router, make sure you aren't plugged into the Uplink or Modem port. If it's a simple 4 port hub, avoid plugging into the uplink port as well.
5. If you have a cable modem that plugs into a router then into your computer, test by powering everything down. Plug the laptop directly into modem's ethernet port. Turn power on to modem. Turn power on to laptop. Check your network light and test internet. If it works there's something wrong with router. If it doesn't, look to the cable for issues.
6. Lastly, if none of those steps worked, remove the ethernet driver and reboot laptop. Let Windows detect the ethernet card, then re-install the driver choosing to overwrite the existing. Know that Windows will tell you you're device is ok just because a driver loaded successfully. It doesn't always know if the driver is the correct one.

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?


try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.

Wireless yes, but ethernet no, why?????


There are two separate IP configurations for the wireless and wired ethernet adapter it could be that the two adapters may be configured differently -- the wired one incorrectly for your home.

It could be a bad ethernet cable.

It could be a bad port on the router.

It could be a hardware problem with the wired network adapter.
