2wire and Wild Blue internet

I have Wild Blue internet. I am trying to set up wireless on my laptop with a 2wire router. Is it possible or do I need to buy a different brand. I have used this one before when we had AT&T dsl, but we moved and DSL is not available.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

You have to go into the 2 wire homepage on the internet and change the 2wire name to a differant one.so your laptop and other computer can talk to each other.i had to do that so i used my last name for it. call your isp to have this verified first.

Trying to connect wirelessly to 2 wire. I get limited access icon


Hi groveland1,

I see that you are having issue with your Internet Connection, Limited or no connectivity is a possible issue with your network key / security key on the router and your laptop.

1. Try and check the network key in your router.

2. Check your network settings in the Laptop and see if the security settings in your Laptop is the same as the security/network key in your Router.

3. If possible recreate your wireless connection in windows for a fresh connection from your Laptop to your Router.

4. Change your Network Key in the Router and in your Laptop see if it will connect in-case you may have forgotten you old Network Key.

Hope this helps.

It doesn't matter which port your PC is plugged into, the router will take care of that. You need to turn the wireless system on. You do this from inside the routers configuration pages which you access through your browser. Being a 2wire router, you may have to use the software on the 2wire website. Alternatively, you can try entering ip addresses into the browser address window. Try 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.0.1 etc
Once you access the router, turn wireless on and activate the security. Enter a code key and write it down as you will need to enter the same code into every PC or laptop that you wish to use the wireless connection. Setting up the wireless connection on your laptop is easy, just tell the laptop to search for available networks and when it finds the 2wire router, tell it to connect. It will then ask for the code key. Enter it and all should be well.

At&t wireless router and magic jack setup


It could be the router which is giving you issue. Press and hold the reset button for 30 second and this makes the configuration to go back to its previous settings. The reconfigure the router with a new SSID and security key. Try connecting to the wireless network, the computers will consider it as a new network and will connect without any issues

I just hooked up my 2wire wireless router and I don't know what number to type in to access the internet on my laptop. Is the number located on my 2wire wireless router?


Yes sometimes the security key that you need for the wireless can be located on the 2wire device its located on the bottom part of it on a sticker its a 10 character key , but if you cannot find there you can find the key by accessing the 2wire setup page.

Wireless Internet through 2Wire router not working


First of all change your router to WPA rather than WEP. WEP is easily cracked now and is not secure. That might be what your laptop is looking at.

Secondly, update the wireless drivers to the current version from the website.

Make sure your router is broadcasting on 'auto' (802.11a/b/g, and N if supported), It ay be broadcasting only on, say 11g and your laptop doesn't support it. Updating the wireless drivers may also fix this.

We have a 2wire wireless modem responding to two laptops. my wife can get on line but I cannot. is it possible that I have the wiring wrong? RJ


You should only need one wireless router for multiple laptops, I have 1 router and I connect to the internet through my laptop, PS3, and my xbox 360 at the same time. Try going to the start menu, then to control panel and find "network and connections", you should find it pops up with a window and you should see a button that says "connect to a network" click that and see if you can find the router you are looking for. You can also right click the two computer icons (1 icon with 2 computers on top of each other) If you are not connected it will have a red "X" through it, if you are connected but there is a problem with your network (IE not connected to the internet, security settings don't match the router) you'll see a small yellow upside-down yield sign with an "!" in it. Right click and open "connect to a network", try to find the name of your router and try to connect to it, try both routers. If this doesn't fix your problem, reply to this thread with a comment that tells us what you found out while doing these steps. If you are connected to the internet you will see the two computers will be blue, probably with a blue "world" next to them (meaning you are connected to the "world" wide web. Good luck and don't forget to rate. Thank you.

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.
