    I appreciate your reply ,I do right click on wi-fi icon usually to reconnect signal when it drops and that only works occasionally . Sometimes it picks up other signals with names like "netgear" and "linksys".. Im embarressed to repeat that im not too tech savy with technical terms but ive noticed these titles at other sites can this be an issue? I truly appreciate your suggestion and anymore your able to provide..:)

    This could be because you are using 2 wireless settings not one, you need to right click the wi-fi icon on the bottom right of the screen and mess around with it, its been awhile for me on this one, sorry, also consider distance and weather problems, or maintenance issues

How to install to att 2wire 2701hgb modem router


Plug power cord into back of modem and then into an electrical outlet. At this point you should see the lights on the front of the modem beginning to come on.


Check the front of the modem for a solid green DSL light. If the light is still blinking, allow a few more moments before proceeding to step 5. A blinking DSL light indicates a break in the network and will require the help of your service provider if it does not turn solid green.


Open your internet browser and type the default gateway into address bar. The default gateway will be provided by your service provider. Newer model 2Wire modems automatically direct you to the installation instructions when the browser is opened.


Click on "Run System Setup Wizard" in the lower right-hand corner. It may require the system password. This password will be provided by your service provider.


Select your timezone and click 'Next.'


Enter your ISP provided login information and click 'Next'. This should authenticate your credentials on the network and complete the installation.

I have a att 2wire wireless router and it keeps dropping the connection constantly its the model 2701hg/b Ive had the router for over a year now what is the basic lifespan of these routers Ive had a tech...


I was having the same issue. I noticed a lot of 2wire networks in range, so I thought that interference might be an issue. I went into my router wireless configuration, and changed the channel from "AUTO" to a different channel...set it to 11, I think. Since then, I have had NO issues what-so-ever. Hope this helps!

Everthing is connected but power light is red and not green.


I'm sorry I cannot completely solve your issues here, but this is due to certain details that are specific to your internet service provider, and other details not provided in your request. However, I do have quite a bit of experience with 2Wire gateways and setting them up for use with DSL service. The following is based on my experiences with 2wire gateways, and AT&T as service provider:

There are a many things that could possibly be causing the red power light (which indicates a system error, more details below), and the reason why you have no internet connection. Your very best bet is to call technical support for your internet service provider (or ISP) for DSL service. You likely received this unit from your service provider - if you did, then they will have technicians who can walk you through the setup process for this specific 2Wire gateway. Also, if you received the unit from your service provider, you most likely received a setup CD/DVD for setup on your pc. If you have not already run this setup disk, do so prior to contacting technical support, and check the status of your lights / internet connection again prior to calling tech support. Depending on your service provider, if you did not receive a CD/DVD from them to setup internet service, then you most likely can find a download of the setup utility available via their website...just go online and see if you can find it on their specific website,& if so, download and run the setup utility. Only run the setup utility on a pc connected directly (by ethernet cable) to the 2Wire gateway, unless directed to do otherwise by your service provider, or their setup utility's instructions.

If you did not receive the unit from your service provider, then you should contact them asap to find out: A) if they support the 2wire gateway (give them the model number), and if they do support it, B) find out what is required to set it up for use with their service.

According to the manual from the manufacturer, available here , when your power light is lit solid red, it indicates the following: "system error, contact technical support". You need to contact technical support for your Internet Service Provider (such as AT&T DSL), NOT for the manufacturer.

If you have your PC connected to your 2wire unit, and the unit is powered on, you can access the unit's setup utility via your web browser (please ensure you have Internet Explorer 5.5 or later, or Mozilla Firefox 3.2 or later). Open your web browser, and in the address bar type the following:

http://gateway.2wire.net/

Click the system tab to open the System Summary page. The diamonds should be green or red, indicating the status of your LED's on the light panel of the 2Wire unit. It may give you only the status message I indicated above, or could provide you with more info. I maintain that you should first contact your ISP's tech support, but if you have not already accessed the gateway's setup utility and run the setup wizard, you may do so from the System Summary area. Look to the far right of the page, and you should see the Setup Wizard utility link in the lower right-hand portion of the page. Links for other registration info are also in this section, if available. Follow the on-screen instructions and check your status lights again.

Again, I hope this information helps, and again, your best resource is the tech support team for your internet service provider. Best of luck, and please report back to let us know if you get it set up, or, if we can be of further assistance to you in any way.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

I have a xbox 360 that fails the mtu portion of the network connection. i have at&t dsl that is run through the phone jack to the router ( 2wire 2701hg-b) and from the router to the xbox. what do you...


check on the MTU settings of ur 2wire.
This are the steps to see what ur MTU setting is:
>connect a computer to the 2wire
>open Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox
>enter this on the address bar: gateway.2wire.net/management
>enter ur system password (in case u forget this, click on i forgot my password to get a hint)
>look for Advance in the column on the left
>click on configure services
>on the bottom, u shud see the MTU number
** i searched online and accdg to xbox tech support, ur MTU should be in the range of 1364 to 1500 **
>click on submit after u change the setting
just in case youve entered the correct MTU setting but it still does not work, u might need to contact either xbox or ur internet service provider.

Keep me posted on this one.

I AM RUNNING VISTA CAN I GET UPDATED SOFTWARE FOR MY 2WIRE PORTAL


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...

2wire modem/router keeps rebooting


ANOTHER COMMON ISSUE: If your modem keeps restarting once the power LED turns solid green, the most likely cause is the power adaptor. Replace the power adaptor and all should be well again.
