Re: 2wire router

Sounds like a firewall on either your comp' or the router isn't enabling you to access the net. Try changing the settings, I would check the router's firewall first.

Hi Kregerbc,

If you want to know your Access Point it is the Name of your Network or Network Key (SSID). Usually the Network Name of 2wire router is 2WIRE and the Last 3 digits of the Serial Number of the Router. The Serial Number is located at the side of the router you will find a Sticker and look for the Serail Number you can also see there the Wireless Network Key under the Bar Code. Another Procedure to find the information of the router is to access it. listed below are the steps on how to access the router.

  • Open a Web browser and type or; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your Wireless Connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key

I dont know crouter configuration


Look at your computer's IP configuration. Go to Network and Dial-up Connections, RIGHT CLICK on your network and pick PROPERTIES. Click on the Internet TCP/IP protocol, then click on the PROPERTIES button. Make sure that your settings are OBTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY.

Then get into your status screen and look at the GATEWAY address. Is that ?

(If you are using Windows 95/98/ME, then go to RUN and go to WINIPCFG)

You can also use the COMMAND PROMPT and type IPCONFIG and it will show the Gateway address. If the Gateway address is slightly different, then try to get into it at that address.

Also from the COMMAND PROMPT, (or MS-DOS window) you can use the PING command. Just type PING If your router responds, you might be OK.

Look at the lights on your ethernet card. Is it GREEN, or does it show YELLOW.

Try rebooting your computer and using PING again.

Then the problem presist it's possible that this Router is NO GOOD.

Hope this Helped!

Trying to access my 2wire router

Please try the following:

1. Check the ip address and default gateway on the computer by typing ipconfig in command prompt.

2. Try to ping the default gateway from the hardwired computer.

3. If you are able to ping the default gateway, but not able to log in, Delete Cookies and check if you could log in.

4. If you still could not log in, try from another web browser.

It should not be necessary to have the installation disk - you can configure the router for wireless use by going into your browser and typing into address bar (I think this is right from memory) - the username & password for accessing the router utilities is by default "admin" (without the quotes) - you will need a wired connection to accomplish this.

Otherwise, if you are using a wired connection, it will connect automatically. Good luck!

If you connect with an ethernet cable, you don't need any additional drivers at all. You just need to have a browser connected to » and a product key. The 2Wire has a built-in wizard which you can access with the browser, and it will guide you through the setup. The product key is obtainable from a number of sources, including the 2wire web site, although you should look to your ISP's web pages first if they provided the 2Wire.

If you don't have an ethernet adapter on your computer, you might want to consider purchasing one of those inexpensive ethernet cards. Ethernet seems to have a lot fewer problems than the USB route.
