2wire blocking traffic between hosts on internal network?

I have 2 PCs "behind" a 2wire 1800HG, one plugged into Eth port and the other wireless. From the wired pc, I can't ping the other pc on same subnet. From the wireless pc, I can ping but can't access drive or shared printer. There don't seem to be settings to allow or block between hosts. Did I miss something?

How do I enable wireless on a 2wire 1800HG router?

Hook to any port by copper line and then from a browser access If you received this WAP from Bellsouth/AT&T etc. you may need to get the admin password and user from them. There you will have a section for your wireless settings that is very similar to Linksys, Dlink, or any other wireless DSL router.

not sure if the 1800hg is the issue log into the router and turn off the encryption temporarily then try to connect the ipod. if the router connects double check your encryption key. if not or it connects for a second and then drops may be the internal security for the router stopping the connection you may have to call 2wire to help you turn off some of the security to keep the ipod connected.

2wire 1800hg-- HomePNA stopped working

What you can do, is take the HPNA adapter from the back of the computer and plug the phone cable portion of it directly to the 1800hg's phone port. Since your 1800hg only has 1 phone port though it will not surf the internet, but this is a suggestion to try to make sure the inside wiring in your house is not bad. If you do this though your computer should say its connected, if it doesnt then it could be a driver issue or the phone cable in the HPNA adapter (try a new one then). If its the driver then try for the regular usb drivers.

Can i download the software for setting up my modem?

The only time you really need software to set up the 2wire is if you are going to the use the USB ports on the back of the 2wire. The 1000 series have wireless capabilities. Since you have a new laptop, it should have wireless capabilities.By default your network name should be 2wireXXX and the XXX is the last three of your SN. The network key for the 2wire is the 10 digit number that is in brackets

Hope this helps you

Unable to actually connect to the internet?

Have you tried restarting your router? If not, try unplugging the ac power from the router, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That will usually take care of this problem. If that doesn't work, you can try going into "manage your wireless connections", delete your wireless network from the list, then reconnect to your network.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it

first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

Plz help me

make sure wireless switch is turned on in the laptop. it would be great to know what type of operating system you are using on this laptop. if it's XP, go to network connections on the control panel, right click it then view available wireless networks, you should be able to see your 2wire network. if it's on vista, go to start, connect to, then choose your 2wire network. if you're running Mac, click on the airport icon, then select the 2wire. all these things will let you type in a security key, just type the nos. enclosed in brackets at the bottom of your 2wire modem (just below the serial nos.)
