Re: not able to get ds or laptop online wireless

In most cases the default wireless settings are sufficient for normal home use.
The WEP or Network key is located on the bottom of the residential Gateway, within brackets [ ]

Cannot find the wep key for my nintendo ds on the 2wire router

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Trying to hook up DSI to AT&T 2701HG-B gateway to make it wireless

So you want to connect your Nintendo DSI to your 2wire modem.
Here are the steps for connecting you DSI wirelessly:
1. First you need to realize that the game console the requirements for the wireless password should be WEP.
2. Open the Nintendo DS setup Utility
3. Select the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
4. on the next page just click on the search for an access point.
5. then click on your wireless name.
(when you still using the default name for your 2wire it will be 2wirexxx "XXX last 3 numbers of the serial number of the 2wire modem")
6. when it is asking for the wep key it is the 10 numbers under the barcode of your 2wire modem.
7. Select No under Auto-obtain IP Adress.
8. click Save settings.
this is the steps on connecting your DSI for wireless connection.
If this doesnt work call At&t for connecting your DSI.

I have a 2wire 2700hg-b modem/wireless router, my problem is i get lag while playing xbox 360 online, i get red bar to none , while my friend have all green bar,in the tv screen,also my laptop lose signal...

yeah a better modem would be the easiest thing to do because it's clear that the one you've got is either not transmtting properly or is just the unit you'vee got has a fault in it

Hi dilex
The 2wire router wireless light comes only when a system is connected to it wireless.

Please post the system that you are using and also what exactly when you try to connect via wireless.

Thank you

Wireless connection to the 2 Wire modem


Most of the 2wire gateways have the WEP key or the encryption code on the bottom of it. It would a 10 digit Number of a Five Character one within square brackets.
Other wise you can go to the gateway page by accessing on another system which is already going online using the gateway or wired to it and in the gateway page under wireless you would find the WEP key incase the default key on the bottom of the 2wire does not work.

Do reply incase this has resolved your issue or you need more help.

Thank you

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop

hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at

Laptop not connectiong to wireless network

is there a switch on the laptop either in the power management software or an actual switch on the laptop case (or a button) that turns the wireless on and off? That's probably the problem, not your router.
