Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I had the same problem. The cause was a faulty power cable. Supposedly the 2wire cables have a notoriously high fail rate. I replaced the cable and everything now works fine.

Now I am not from USA so excuse my lack of knowing AT&T.
Is that your Modem letting you go directly to the internet?
Or is it your Wireless Router?
If it is your wireless router, the simply turn both of the Modem and Router off at the wall and then wait 1 minute and turn then back on... If it is not that contact customer support.
best of luck!

No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.
The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.
If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

SOURCE: 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.

This is a problem with the firmware of your device so the first thing that you can do here is to do a firmware update on it to correct the problem, you can get the firmware from your ISP of the manufacturer of the device...
