2Wire USB 802.11g adaptor on XP: drops wireless periodically

I had AT&T Uverse installed about 1 month ago. Overall it's 'ok' service, not great.

I have 1 problem-desktop connected wirelessly. The symptom is that is periodically drops the connected status to the 2Wire Wireless gateway. I try to 'Repair' the adapter in XP, and eventually have to hard-reset the PC. Even shutdown>restart option just hangs at the "Shutting down..." screen in XP.

This PC worked perfectly before installation of this USB device, and I'm using the latest driver on XP SP2. Before, the desktop was using a LAN cable connected to a Linksys router.

Any ideas why the USB device would prevent the re-connect or reboot of the PC if the connection to the wireless router is disconnected?

    2 wire att gateway with Netgear WG311 54MBPS on XP. IP addresses are not connected and Internet Explorer can not find the server or page. Called Att tech support with very little help once they found out the wireless card was Netgear. Uninstalled/reinstalled IE. All the usual connection checks of wiring and configuation of connection.

    Similar: Home Microsoft Vista system with 2 wire USB 802.11g. Use the internet a bit, then eventually it stops working indicating no network detected. Wireless light remains steady green. Wireless idicates no network. Sometimes requires a couple shutdowns to get the wireless lite off (once that goes off, I know I am good to go on next start up). I use a laptop with a different wireless adaptor and it always works fine. HP tried to send an update for USB Wireless lite false indication and that failed causing a disconnect, which took MANY attempts to reconnect. Can get it working eventually but very annoyed.

    Have the same problems as the others, however, most of mine is on startup of the computer, after a shut down.



    Sometime takes 40 minutes to respond.

    yup, been going on for about 2 months. I would just unplug the card and plug it back in. But it has slowly worsened, and last night it failed altogether

    How do you Change the wireless channel??

  • wool_1999 Jan 27, 2009

    I have the same problem with Vista. My laptop always connects fine but my HP desktop thirty feet away drops the connection whenever it feels like it and may or may not come up no matter what the indicator lights are. What's up with this solution. How do you set the wireless channel to 6 and disable wireless zero configuration????? No idea how to do that.

Possible Solution:

  1. Login to the gateway's Management and Diagnostic Console: http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc
  2. Go to Wireless under Local Network
  3. Change Maximum Connection Rate to 11Mbps
  4. Save by clicking Submit
It worked for me. My connection was fine on one computer, but would drop out several times an hour if my other computer was connected. It's been fine for a couple of hours now. Finger crossed.

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.


I used this one:

Introduction
============
This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
============================
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
===============================
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.

*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver

*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number

*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
