Router blocking incoming connections to online games/anonymous video chatting

You may need to reset your router once. You will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then
unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset then reconfigure it again.

Have a new lap top and to know my 2wire password running vista

Look on the bottom of you modem it should have the default password listed there, if that doesn't work then you should be able to reset it and use the default info on the bottom to log in to the modem and reset the password to whatever you desire. Once you do that I always recommend writing the password down and taping it to the bottom of the mdem / router

I cannot send mail on my MacBook Pro (Intel) using OS X's Mail program at home using my 2wire; it works at the office on Cable. What's wrong with my settings and is it software or hardware?

You may be using the wrong SMTP address for the Outgoing mail server address for your email service.

If you are not sure what your SMTP Outgoing Mail Server address is, then you can reference this link
below, to locate the Outgoing mail server address of your current email service provider

Link: POP & SMTP Email Server Addresses
In regards to checking your mail settings in Mac OS X Mail you will need to perform these few steps:

*Launch Mail
• Click on Mail name and select Preferences from
the drop down menu.
• Now select the Account tab.
• Locate your affected email account from the side
bar and from Account Information, make sure
your Outgoing mail server address is correct.

I am using a .Mac account as an example,
but the same principal applies.

Now if you do find that the Outgoing mail server address for your email service is correct, then the issue may be with the SMTP server for your email service.

One way to determine SMTP functionality however, is to go online and use the web mail page for your email account and send out a test email.
I would also recommend you make sure your Macbook Pro also has the most current version update.

Apple usually has bug fixes in each of their version updates for the Mac OS X Mail application, as well as other built in Mac OS X applications.

If you are still unable to send outgoing mail, contact your service provider to get more assistance and have them check your SMTP server address, authentication and connection with their Outgoing Mail servers.

I have a bigpond supplied 2wire wireless internet modem (2701HGV-W) which works seemlessly with my laptop running XP-sp2 for internet and email. Recently I purchased a Brother MFC 6890-CDW which offers...

Check if it's recognised on the local area network etc,make sure driver is installed and you may need to reset all pc,router etc to get connection.Now remember you need a router for this to work,with only a modem it will not function.You also need to restart all instruments etc before it's picked up by the router and the network..Google a bit and it will solve this.Make sure it uses wifi and not bluetooth as then it will need the right bluetooth connection to your pc..

Blocking a user from internet

if you log into your router/modem you shuld be able to enable mac filtering add the mac address's you simply want to have access and they will be denied, alternatively you can turn off the dhcp so your router doesnt assign them access - either will work but i prefer the mac filtering.

ipconfig /all in a dos box will display mac address.

My 2wire router will not connect to my nintendo ds wifi system.

The DSi only works with WEP encryption. The 2Wire and most other newer routers use WPA encryption.

Simply logon to your router with a web browser. The default IP for it is but it might be different, just check the manual or internet for the IP. Go to "Home Network" then "Advanced Settings" and change the security from WPA to WEP and save.

Thats it!

Hope that helps.

Blocking modem from receiving movie down loads

I think you mean the 2wire 2701 Rev A with white front and gray sides? If so there isn't a way in the router to generically disable all movie and music downloads, but if what you mean is that you want to block torrent or p2p downloads from a know client you can do that very easily by simply blocking the port in the firewall on either the router or the operating system.

I think 2wire routers are good in providing signal strength. Contact the 2wire vendor regarding your requirements.
