Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem

Using 2Wire Home portal 1000HW modem with Verizon service.
My daughter attempted to connect using Linksys wireless-G Broadband Router Mod# WRT54G. I am not sure what settings were changed, but we can no longer access the settings page to change settings back. I have a steady orange Local Network light on modem. 4 computers: (1) USB connected; (1) Ethernet connected; (2) Wireless connected. The only computer that can still access internet is the USB connected. There is no reset button and disconnecting the modem and reconnecting does not reset. Help???

Re: 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 Try this instead of 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.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...

How to access your wifi password with 2wire homeportal 1000hw

If you have the setup menu login password you can view (and change) the wireless connection password in the modem setup menu. You'll need an ethernet cable to connect directly to the modem if you can't get to it wirelessly. With the ethernet cable you bypass the need for the wireless password but you will still need to get into the configuration menu, which usually has a password too. After you connect the ethernet cable, open a browser window and enter in the address field and press enter. This is the same web address field you would use if you were typing That 192. address should take you to the modem setup menu. If a password is required it will prompt you to enter the password. If you don't know the password you'll have to reset the modem and start over. (yes, there is typically an actual reset button although many of them are hard to find) After a reset there is usually not a password requirement. Make sure you set all passwords again if you do a reset - want to be sure no one else can get into your router once you are finished.

2wire homeportal 1000hw cannot find wireless address

Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.
