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
From the desktop computer, connected to 2WIRE:
1) Open a browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net
. This site will automatically detect your settings and provide the necessary info., required to set up your wireless network.
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
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
"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.
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!
