Reimaged computer can't find IP

My newly reimaged laptop connects just fine vie the cable to my 2wire box, but when I try to connect wirelessly, it can't find an IP. When this happened to me before, I ended up have to open up all my access via DMZ because of how my firewall restrictions are set. (This is a work laptop.) Can you tell me how to set that up again? Or is there a better way?

Re: reimaged computer can't find IP

Much better way! Do you have security setup on your network? Meaning is your Modem/router setup with a WEP or WPA? If so there are a few things that need to be setup when bringing a newly imaged PC onto your network? I have an answer, but can only answer your quesitons or help you with this useful information that I am seeking

Http:// has been put into my home page browser but nothing happens

IP ADDRESS is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.

1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless)
2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking.
3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet.
4) try this also:
this for internet explorer:
click tools - connections - LAN settings
( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it )
if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it.
after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
You said that it works only with the ethernet connection but not with the wireless connection.
Check the IP address of the computer when it is connected with the cable to the router. note down the default gateway number.
Open the set up interface of your router with the Default gateway number.
once you are able to open the set up interface of your router, you will be able to change the wireless settings of the router.
after that you will need to conncet to the wireless network on your laptop.

Changed from AT&T to a cable company for DSL. Trying to set up

You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

Wireless Internet stopped working. Can't reconnect.

If restarting the router and restarting computer did not work (unplug both power cables), then you need to log into the router and check network settings.

To log into router type the router IP on internet explore bar, then enter user id and password.
You find details on how to do this, IP and passwords listed on the owner manual.

If wireless security settings on router are fine, then you can reset router to factory default using the pinhole switch. You will need to enter all your broadband settings to have the router working afterward.

XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care

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

Wireless Internet

I am guessing you are connecting that netgear card wirelessly? Does it get an IP address? Have you tried pinging the router from the laptop once the connection has been made? Try this. Go to the start menu, click the run button and in there type cmd and press enter. Once the black command prompt is open try ping See if that comes up with anything. Also try typing ipconfig and press enter. It will show 3 things.
IP address

The gateway should be your 2wire modem.
Try ping gateway ip and see if that works.

Let me know! thank you.
