Hi,

Its just locked up as it can't see your old router, 2 resolutions:

If you have have backed up your config settings for the router or you don't have any set then press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, now let go and power the router off, now power the router off and back on again>this will reset the router back to factory defaults and you now connect back up to the router but you will have to setup your broadband logon again.

The second option is to connect the router via an ethernet cable and reset the router and it should let you connect wirelessly again.

Thanks

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

I have a att 2wire wireless router and it keeps dropping the connection constantly its the model 2701hg/b Ive had the router for over a year now what is the basic lifespan of these routers Ive had a tech...


I was having the same issue. I noticed a lot of 2wire networks in range, so I thought that interference might be an issue. I went into my router wireless configuration, and changed the channel from "AUTO" to a different channel...set it to 11, I think. Since then, I have had NO issues what-so-ever. Hope this helps!

Where do i find the essid and key on the 2701HG-B trying to get a HP Photosmart printer to attach


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

2wire 2701 block port 80


Go to the following link. This is just an example on how to forward ports for limewire. Use the same steps to forward port 80.

If it still doesnt work, try updading the firmware. In case this fails, then we have some issue with the router

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire


before you connect the netgear router to your 2wire modem, you have to get the modem configured first. you did not include the firmware version of your modem (firmware version is found at the UI, go to gateway.2wire.net, click on the system icon.) for firmware version less than 3.7, go to homeportal/management, click on configure services, uncheck enable routing, then click on submit. for version 3.7 or higher, go to homeportal/management, click on configure under broadband link, put a dot in disable pvc search, set VPI to 0 & VCI to 35, the connection type box should be direct IP, then click on submit. then go to configure services, uncheck enable routing box, then click submit. you will notice the broadband link on the 2wire modem turn orange/amber, then you have successfully set the modem to bridged mode. that way you can now connect the router according to manufacturer's instructions (or just read the manual for the netgear router....)
