Question about 2wire Wireless-G 802.11g ADSL Gateway

1 Answer

I can't set up a home network

I am using AT&T Uverse with the 2wire gateway. 2 desktops (1 connected to the gateway, the other connected to a cable box), 2 game systems (1 wireless, the other wired into cable box), other wireless devices (phones, laptops). What am I doing wrong? I ran the home network wizard -- i even went so far as moving the desktops to Win7, thinking XP was the culprit -- to no avail.

    Are you having trouble connecting to the internet on any of the devices or just cannot see each of the devices and share info?

  • Adm1n May 11, 2010

    How many connections are on the 2wire and the cable box (I'm assuming you mean cable modem?)? Also are the different computers getting assigned IP addresses from a DHCP or are they giving themselves private IPs (169.x.x.x)? --T

I know nothing about uverse, but I'd like to suggest a link to this forum, at a site that has been a great resource for me with all kinds of networking questions. Apparantly there have been some issues with 2wire, so check the 2wire site for firmware updates, possibly see this article.
Aside from that, I can offer you the standard troubleshooting links for xp, here, here, here, and here.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

You will need to get a hold of att. They will need to have you unplug the 2wire and then reconnect. They will need to reset the gateway from their end. good Luck.

Turned on the TV, but not the Uverse box and still lost the internet. Determined that it was the Panasonic Home Theater wireless speakers which operate at 2.4 GHz causing the interference. Next step is contacting Panasonic to see if they have a solution for that issue.

How to set up uverse home network with 2wire gateway


To use AT&T Uverse for a home network, you need to get the AT&T "Homeview" Network Management software. AT&T provided this software in the past freely.

This software must be run on each PC on your home network, and then each PC can see the others. You then use go to My Computer, select each disk drive you want to share, right-click and select Sharing and Security, and select to share the drive. Then go on the drive to the folders you want to share and right-click and set them to be shared. Then the Homeview system will show these are shared folders. You can also share printers on the same network using the Homeview software.

2wire wireless connection


Yes !
Wireless zero configuration service should run.

Go to control panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services, then then locate and double-click on Wireless zero configuration.
Change the Startup type to Automatic, and then click on Start. (Apply and OK).

Also you have to check your Wireless network settings configuration -> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

If you are using some utility for wireless connection, disable it and try with Windows (standard) wireless connection.

On the end, it might be useful to compare these above settings with the settings on your another computer and find the differences.

Regards.

I experienced this same problem on a friend's AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B router. The primary computer used WinXP,sp3; I added a laptop, WinXP,sp3 and a Macbook Pro w/ Leo OS v11, successfully.

How to resolve the issue (rather, how I resolved this issue):

From the desktop computer, connected to 2WIRE:

1) Open a browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254. This site will automatically detect your settings and provide the necessary info., required to set up your wireless network.

NOTE: NTWK information/settings for THIS router can NOT be retrieved via traditional methods. Ignore all other information that assigns a name to your network and/or password. Follow only this wizard, for success in setting up your wireless connection.

2) Verify that your Firewall and System settings are correct and up-to-date. If not, update your software by pressing the link on the right.

3) Click the Home Networking tab (at top of page):

Locate @ the right of your screen, "Status at a Glance".
Under "Home Network", verify:
"Ethernet = x"; (where x = $1)
"Wireless = 0" (ZERO IS OKAY!)

("Zero" will change to "1, 2, 3, etc.," upon successful connection of ea. new wireless device(s) added to the NTWK).

* Once a new wireless device is initially and successfully connected to the NTWK, the LCD wireless indicator of the router will illuminate green.

4) Under "Wireless Settings":

NOTE, the network name. This is the name (of Network) that you will use to connect your wireless device(s).

The default password is the 10-digit number [in brackets] displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the router (directly above the UPC code, below the SN).

5) Click "Edit Settings":

In the DEVICE YOU ARE ADDING, click or type in the name of NTWK, as stated under "Wireless Settings". Next, type in the 64-bit WEP password (10-digit number displayed on the sticker, located on the bottom of the 2WIRE router).

6) Click "Verify your Home Network".

Verify the wireless device you added is displayed and has been added to the NTWK.
The Ethernet setting should still remain = 1 (or however many devices are connected to the INET via wire) and Wireless should = 1 (or more, if +1 device has been added).
NOW, the wireless LED shall be glowing the same pretty green, as all the other indicators on the router! You are now connected. Congratulations!

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS


the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.

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.
