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

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.

Re: wireless not working

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..

I have a 2wire modem from att. i made a 50 foot eathernet cord, i have a eathernet transmitter teaster to test the cable to see if it is good (and it is) but i still cant get internet on the other side of...

Try with a shorter enet cable and see if you get internet, if you are able to get internet with a shorter cable then the cable might not be working fine. Else get a wireless card installed on your computer since the 2wire modem has wireless connectivity. It would be more easy and convenient to connect to wireless using the 2 wire modem.

3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.

Blocking a user from internet

if you log into your router/modem you shuld be able to enable mac filtering add the mac address's you simply want to have access and they will be denied, alternatively you can turn off the dhcp so your router doesnt assign them access - either will work but i prefer the mac filtering.

ipconfig /all in a dos box will display mac address.

I have a macbook that I cant get to connect to my 2wire modem correctly

Make sure that the airport is on. Connect to your modem & type in the wireless password.

If still having problem joining the network, delete the keychain but make sure you only delete the keychain for 2wire by going to utilities then keychain access.
