Question about Computers & Internet
I've had many problems with 2wire gateways. I would first suggest changing the default WEP key if you are using WEP at all. I actually recommend you use WPA2. It's much more secure. If that does not change anything, it could be RF (Radio Frequency) interference. Turn off any 2.4 GH wireless devices. This includes any wireless landline phones you have. Wireless access points operate on the same range (2.4GHz). The difference is is that wireless phones 'hog' the frequency. 802.11x devices have special protocols implemented (CSMA/CA) to 'share the air'. If that is the problem and still want to use the wireless phones, set your wireless access point to use a different channel. It's it's on 1, set it to 11. You'll have to do some testing for best results.

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.
