Connecting 2wire 1000HW to a laptop

Hi! I have a 2wire modem/router that had been setup for my desk computer (which is fine) and was set up for my sister's lap top. She lost the connection and I can't remember which #s on the bottom of my modem is the key code. Can you help me figure out which ones work? Thanks! Patricia

The number that corresponds to the wireless password/key code is the one inside the brackets on the bottom of the 2wire on the sticker.

How to access your wifi password with 2wire homeportal 1000hw


If you have the setup menu login password you can view (and change) the wireless connection password in the modem setup menu. You'll need an ethernet cable to connect directly to the modem if you can't get to it wirelessly. With the ethernet cable you bypass the need for the wireless password but you will still need to get into the configuration menu, which usually has a password too. After you connect the ethernet cable, open a browser window and enter 192.168.1.1 in the address field and press enter. This is the same web address field you would use if you were typing www.google.com. That 192. address should take you to the modem setup menu. If a password is required it will prompt you to enter the password. If you don't know the password you'll have to reset the modem and start over. (yes, there is typically an actual reset button although many of them are hard to find) After a reset there is usually not a password requirement. Make sure you set all passwords again if you do a reset - want to be sure no one else can get into your router once you are finished.

How can i configure WPA security on my 2wire modem


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

Problems with 2wire HomePortal 1000HW DSL Modem and Network Router


Check your firewall setting and also your security settings for cookies. Try putting less of a restriction on your cookies. BofA and wells fargo require that they can ping you and get your IP address incase of fraud so chances are lowering your settings on your cookies will solve the problem.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
