Question about 2wire (1000-000057-000) Modem

1 Answer

Wireless not working

I have a Mac Pismo laptop which used to work fine with its airport card and my 2wire 2700 modem. Then one day I was working on the internet with my desktop hooked up by ethernet and my laptop on wireless and suddenly the modem was resetting itself. This happened a couple of times within a few minutes and then I found I couldn't connect with the wireless. My laptop shows I'm getting a strong signal on the airport monitor. The network status pane says airport is connected to the network. It then says airport has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet. I've tried a few different things I found on various forums, but nothing seems to work. I'm thinking my problem must be connected to the modem resetting itself. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your input. I agree it has to be a security issue, but I don't know how to access the security settings on my modem. I'm supposed to be able to do it by loggin in tohttp://192.168.1.254 but every time I try (connected by ethernet) my modem shuts down and resets. I tried deleting the com.apple.airport.preferences.plist found in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ , as well as deleting the keychain item and taking the network off the list in the preferred networks in my system preferences. Then I went into the Airport setup assistant and tried to change the settings. I put in the 26 character WEP key they gave me, but the assistant doesn't recognize the base station even though the signal shows strong. When I go back into the system preferences and look at the security setting, it says "none". When I change it to WEP password and tell it to show me, it has a $ in front of it. No matter how many times I eliminate that symbol, it reappears after a while. Any more input would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your solution, timid. In the end, I discovered that the modem had reset to a WEP password different from the one I had listed. When I reset everything with a custom password, the system started working again.

Check for the wireless security settings in your modem.. and check if your airport is connected properly, if it is connected properly, then you would get a valid ipaddress, try resetting the modem and reconfigure your wired and wireless settings, if possible , try to upgrade the latest firmware for your modem and then reconfig it..

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

Modem reboots when using wireless


Did you try upping your lease time and see if that changes things.
The lease time is the amount of time before a DHCP request a new IP address.
Ususally it get the same, but if it is malfunctioning it can cause problems like this.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

How to connect to dsl


You need to install either an "airport card" in your system or if you already have one in your computer, you need to download "airport" from the apple website. This is the only way MAC's can receive wireless signal.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem


Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com
