Trying to hook up DSI to AT&T 2701HG-B gateway to make it wireless

So you want to connect your Nintendo DSI to your 2wire modem.
Here are the steps for connecting you DSI wirelessly:
1. First you need to realize that the game console the requirements for the wireless password should be WEP.
2. Open the Nintendo DS setup Utility
3. Select the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings
4. on the next page just click on the search for an access point.
5. then click on your wireless name.
(when you still using the default name for your 2wire it will be 2wirexxx "XXX last 3 numbers of the serial number of the 2wire modem")
6. when it is asking for the wep key it is the 10 numbers under the barcode of your 2wire modem.
7. Select No under Auto-obtain IP Adress.
8. click Save settings.
this is the steps on connecting your DSI for wireless connection.
If this doesnt work call At&t for connecting your DSI.
Thank you for choosing FIXYA.

Need to know wep key adress for belkin router wifi

An easy alternative way to determine your IP is to use a free and easy online IP checker like What is My IP Address link is here

If you can see default gateway number that is already the ip address of your router.

Hi, i need help i cant find my ip adress and i need a wep key to play online on video games

In order to fix this I need some more info. What type of Router do you have? Is it your network or does it belong to someone else.

A little background. WEP is a method to secure computer networks. It requires a password (so to speak) to connect to a router. When the router was installed a Key was chosen and entered on the router and then the computers connecting to it wirelessly.

If you own the network and know the key it is easy. Just enter the Key in your network configuration on your PS3 or Xbox . If not you need to do more steps and while not difficult need to be thought through.

All Routers have a reset switch that restores it to its factory default (without a WEP) but this will prevent all your other devices (including the computer you are using) from connecting to the router if they were configured for WEP.

If you are going to continue I can give detailed instructions if you can tell me the router model

Laptop running 0n win 7 wont connect to router

1. you will have to designate the laptop or allow it to connect by entering it into the 3com router.
2. try connecting to the router via ethernet cord (that is connecting with a physical straight through cord) that came with the router.
If connected with this then you will have to go into the router via the IP set 192.168..0.1 depending on the router ip for loging in.
2. Go to the "wireless setup" and enter your MAC address for the laptop in the permissions list in the router. Instructions on how to do this is at the manufacturers site. Step by step.
3. Do the following step if instructions not found.
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

PS3 Trouble due to WEP/WPA-PSK Key trouble

You can always press the reset button and wipe all settings out. You will have to re-enter passwords and encryption to protect your network.

Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly

try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.

Cant connect

Hi purplegarion,


hook up the router per instruction in manual and your particular internet connection.  With the Di524 powered up, use the end of a paperclip to depress the reset button located in a little hole beside the power connection.   open internet explorer and type in and press enter.  The password is admin. once th screen appears, click on Wizard.  Follow the wizards directions carefully.  

For simplicity of security click on the wireless button while in the  wireless screen.  Set radio to on.  Enter a SSID like purplegarion. Set to open system.  Set Security to WEP.  Wep to HEX.  64bit.  Enter into Key one a 10 digit number you can remember like 1234567890.  Click apply.  Change your password to a personal password other than ADMIN.   

Any device that attaches will need to enter the WEP 64 Bit hex Security key 1234567890, or whatever 10 digit number you put in the router. 

Internet connection will require powering down you modem, and the DI-524 router.  power up the modem first and let it go through the start up, then power up thte DI 524.  you may need to make sure your DHCP is set to Automatically assign an IP address.
