Re: 2 wire modem
Look at the back of your two wire modem, you would find a 10 digit number that would be the default password, try it out, or else you need to login to your modem setup page to get the wireless settings, contact 2 wire they would help you to login and get the wireless settings
The first suggested solution is right. just look at the 10-digit on the bottom of your modem. that is the set of numbers which is enclosed with a parenthesis. type it as your wireless network password. if you want to customize the password, just do to the modem interface and include mdc at the end, for example, "gateway.2wire.net/mdc" using your computer browser. you will see a list of options at the left. got to local network>wireless> you will see here the list of things you can do about your wireless network including the customizing the password.hope it helps
Its not the10 digit number..its the 26 digit number..on the sticker if u turn the 2 wire modem upside down ..that the default encryption key..WEP u can also set a custom passphrase-->
#open the firmware of the modem..for eg.192.168.2.1
#click home network at the top.
#go to wireless settinfs..
#change the authentication to WPA-PSK from WEP-OPEN
#choose the "use custom passphrase" instead of "default encryption key "
#put a key (atleast 10 characters)
#it will now ask for a WPA-PSK key rather than WEP eky..
#punch in the key..
#click on connect

Hi If the Internet connection frequently drops, It could be wired or wireless. If it is wired connection u can try the following troubleshooting steps 1) connect Modem-Router-Computer 2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net) 3) User name : admin , Password: password 4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select WAN setup & reduce the MTU to 1400 & click apply. if the problem still continues upgrade the firmware of the router. This should resolve the problem
NOW IF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION DROPS, try the following troubleshooting steps 1) connect Modem-Router-Computer 2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net) 3) User name : admin , Password: password 4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select Wireless settings (under Setup) 5) SSID: (user defined) Channnel : 11 or 6 mode : upto 54 mbps or 150 mbps Security : WPA-PSK (TKIP) PASSPHRASE : (user defined) Click apply This should resolve the problem.

if its asking you for a wep key, you must go into the modems page and get it.
i think best way to find the modem page is goto start and in run type cmd, then type ipconfig, the default gate way is the adress to your modem page type this number with is some thing like 192.168.2.1 into your internet explorer page, this should bring you to your modem. navagate through this untill you find wireless settings and in there you will see the wireless wep key. if it ask you for a password try admin and pass admin or admin with no pass, you can google what your password is to this modem if you have a problem. hope this helps,
either you need to reconfigure the router for the wireless configuration or setup the router for PPPoE connection. if you have internet directly to the modem contact your router manufacturer if not then you need to contact your ISP and ask if you need to setup the route rwith PPPoE connection and get the user/password
It sounds like the wireless setup in the router may have gotten corrupted. From the wired PC, using a browser type 192.168.2.1 to access the router. It will ask you for a password. The default is to leave it blank. If you've set one, you'll need to give it the one you set. That'll get you into the router. Check the wireless setup. Everything else should be ok, or you wouldn't be able to access the internet from your wired PC.
If you can't find anything wrong, you can try rebooting the router and the modem. Shut both down as well as your wired PC. Wait 30 seconds. Boot the modem, the router and the PC at 30 second intervals.
If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.
Try diagnose and repaire the connection if that does not work Reset your modem it should go back to default manufacture setup.Then turn modem off and connect any computer or laptop to the modem with ethernet wire turn the modem on go back to your computer that you are connected to modem with wire go to network connections and disable the wireless Network connection and enable local area connection once you see you have connected and have internet working go to start menu you can do this on the start search bar with vista or run with any other windows version type cmd and press enter, it should bring a DOS command menu and then type in ipconfig and enter scroll up and down to where you see default gateway type that ip address to your internet browser it should take you to login screen username should be administrator password admin setup your WEB key make the wireless access available DO NOT FORGET to write the web key down, give a name to the connection and change the default password from admin to something you can remember. save the settings and turn that off keep the laptop on. Then unplug the ethernet cable and switch the network connectiion again enable wireless disable local area also you need to scan the available wireless internet and pick the one you just named use the webkey to access and save when the connection in made.
