2Wire Home Portal 1100 for AT&T DSL connection problem

I have a 2Wire Home Portal 1100 as the gateway for my home network. I connect my computer(s) and my brother's computer (Wirelessly) through a WRT54G Lynksis router. I recently downloaded Cisco Network Magic as the easiest means of streamlining my home network. Now I cannot get a stable Internet connection even though my Home network seems to be working. What am I missing?

HI! read your posting regarding the situation that your experiencing.. If before you dont have any problem regrding your connection with out the cisco network magic. I suggest that before you install the cisco network magic. you should get the full version not the trial version, there is a limitation of setting up the trial version.. Cisco network magic is a plug and play and easy to setup if you get the full version. I dont see any problem regarding your connection with the 2wire and the linksys router, becoz you mention earlier that hime network is working and you can connect to the network and the internet..

Need to find my wep key for my AT&T 2 wire 2700HG-B DSL router


Hi,


The Default Wep Key is the 10 digit key located on the bottom sticker of the router. It is near the Bar Code. You can also personalize the Network Key by simly accessing the router. I've listed the steps on how to access the router incase the Network Key on the sticker is not working.

  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
Rate me if this helps so i can help others

Thanks for using Fixya

I recently upgraded from my 2wire DSL to Uverse. My older laptop with the 2wire card and the home portal fins the new network but only runs at 11 mbps. Where my other laptop with the newer 2wire software...


That means the older 2wire card was a B model adapter, which can only run at 11mbps. The other laptop most likely has built in wireless or some other adapter in it that runs on the G model, which is 54 mbps. There is no way to fix this issue, other then aquiring a new wireless adapter for your older laptop.

2wire HomePortal replacement necessary?


how bout customizing the wireless settings of your 2wire first for a more stable connection. like change the wireless name from it's default and enable a wireless security. you can also change the wireless channel to minimize interference from other wireless device near your area.
if you have done that already, try to upgrade the firmware of your router to check that it's not a firmware issue.
if you have done everything to solve your concern, it's better to get a replacement.
i believe your home portal is a gateway. if so, you also need to have a gateway to replace it and a router is not sufficient.
as long as your laptop has a wireless card installed, you don't need any other equipment
hope this'll help you.

Home portal not yet activated


Hi,

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

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...

Can't connect one laptop


Ok this is a simple, but difficult fix at times. I need to know if the other laptop is used in and or outside of your home? In addition I need to know if you have security like a WEP or WPA setup? Do you have a home network setup using this router/modem? I may have other questions, but these I need to know in order to give you an exact answer!
