AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B connection problems

After using the AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B gateway DSL for several months, it now has problems connecting to the internet, redirecting me to an AT&T high speed internet help page, (which doesn't help at all...)
occasionally the ''Internet'' LED is red or flashes when it shouldn't, it also says it isn't compatible w/ my Firefox browser, which it has always worked on before, im stumped, any help is welcome, thx =D

This is a problem with the firmware of your device so the first thing that you can do here is to do a firmware update on it to correct the problem, you can get the firmware from your ISP of the manufacturer of the device...

When i connect the dsl cable to it the dsl light starts flashing green then red


Put tinfoil over your splice connectors and filters as they leak signals that totally confuse your modem. Never leave any bare wires, I tinfoil the entire modem to prevent the neighbors from hacking me. I don't use wireless, only CAT5 ethernet cable.

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.

You need a wireless router for you to use Wireless connection

I recommend DLINK, Belkin or Linksys router any of those will work.

you can still use wired connection because router has 4 ports for wired connection but if you prefer to use wireless then you need to buy USB wireless network adapter.

2wire 2701HG-S Embarq to AT&T


that is typically a bad username in the modem, you will have to put there temp user name in for registration for the DSL. and after that you can put the username into the modem that you created during the registration process. Should be taken care of.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted
