Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Please excuse my very limited knowledge of wireless connectivity! I currently have Juno DSL, with a 2wire modem (2071 - no wifi) and I want to add wifi capabilities to my house. I assume that I need a wireless router, but I have no experience with this technology. What do I need and what will work best?

As I understand it, you currently have a DSL line with a computer plugged into a modem that is attached to the DSL. Now, you want to use wireless throughout your home.

My choice of router manufacturer is Linksys though there are other manufacturers of wireless technology.

What ever manufacturer you choose, get the device. Hook it up according to the instructions you will find inside the device box.

It will go something like this: Attach a cat 5 cable from the "uplink" port on your router to the DSL modem. Plug your wired computer into any of the 4 other ports. Everything is off, right? Cycle the modem - wait for the lights to settle down. Plug in your new wireless, wait for the lights to settle. Turn on your computer. Turn on your wireless. Wou may have to connect using the windows wizard.

A tool I use for network management is Network Magic, a Cisco product. Cisco also owns LlinkSys.

Get the program, free download and eval period. After the eval period you may purchase or continue to use the product with some features disabled.

How can i connect in dsl modem with laptop?


If your laptop has no built in wifi, a USB receiver can access nearby (wireless capable) routers or router/modems. Otherwise a CAT5 cable can hardwire your computer or laptop to a DSL modem. CAT5 is a little wider than telephone connectors. Then install drivers (and make sure the modem is compatible with your providers requirements, they are not all the same.)

I have a 2wire 397 modem router from att in line ,i want to add another 2wire modem router in line to a different room to hook up a samsung 3d blu ray to go on the internet


you cannot have 2 modem routers on the same line, if your current modem router has wifi, you might consider using a wifi repeater that will pick up the signal elsewhere and give you added lan ports. alternatively, you could just run a lan lead to where your samsung is and use a 5 port lan switch.

You will need to follow these steps:
.
  1. Plug your pc strait into the DSL modem without using the router for now
  2. Open up a web browser and go to gateway.2wire.net
  3. Click on the Broadband Link icon.
  4. Click on Summary.
  5. Select PPPoE to be "off" "managed" or "remote" (not sure what Juno calls it)
  6. Now, plug your router into your pc and modem.
  7. Log into the routers config interface by going to the ip mentioned in the user manul (usually 192.168.2.1)
  8. Go to PPPoE settings.
  9. Enter in your Juno id and password
  10. Save settings
  11. Unplug your router and modem.
  12. Plug your modem back in, wait for it to boot, then plug your router back in.

2-wire modem won,t come up in connections,and don,t know how to configure modem dsl light solid green and can,t find lan settings,it,s a 2071-a


If you know your local network address side address then just log into the 2Wire with "http.XXX.XXX.XXX."
Example my 2Wire: "http.192.168.1.254." I'm not sure but I think the 192.XXX.XXX address is default.
The box has a little web server that will allow you to reconfigure to default but if your provider programmed it you may need info from them.
Sounds like the DSL side is working.
Good luck!

Oh, if you have the info from your provider to set it up, you might have to push the reset button on the box to reset it to factory default.
Then it gets a little complicated.

Configure D-Link Wireless N Router DIR-615 for 2wire 2071-A modem


You do not need the disc. Using you browser, login into the router using the default IP 192.168.0.1 unless this has been changed and you should be able to configure your router.
login ADMIN and pass is blamk

Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........
