You have to connect to your 2Wire box through a web browser (gateway.2wire.net) And once you're inside the configuration page of the 2Wire, you should see the "key code page" to enter your activation key code.
Open a Web browser and access the 2Wire gateway user interface by entering
Click the Home Network tab. Click the Wireless Settings link to open the Configure the Wireless Network page. On the Wireless Security section select custom key ,enter new key and then click on Save at the bottom of the page.
By the way the default /current password is underneath the router.
hi try to do the following steps and revert back with results: 1. click on start>>click on run>>type "cmd" and hit enter. 2.In the black window that appears type tracert kijiji.com and hit enter, once it completes it will show the time in the middle column (eg:160ms). 3.Look and check if any value is greater than 240ms,if so then there is some latency problem which can be either due to the website or the Internet service provider.
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 192.168.0.1 ?
(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 192.168.0.1. 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.
Open a browser while you are hardwired (ethernet cable from modem to computer) and enter this address: http://gateway.2wire.net/xslt
It'll take you to admin pages to configure how you want. Be careful though - 2wire can be uber-confusing. Download various instructions of things you want to do BEFORE you start making connection changes.
hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.
and click on the firewall icon. Click on firewall settings and, if prompted, enter your system password to reach the advanced settings page. select the computer that will function as the VPN server. In the left column, select PPTP server. click on Add, then done. or try changing the IP scheme to the
172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 schemes by accessing gateway.2wire.net, go to home network icon, then advanced settings. but if you manually configure or disable dhcp, be sure to write down the subnet mask & IP assigned to the 2wire then click on save. if all else fails, run it on DMZPlus mode, however this solution will allow all inbound traffic to the computer. if it still doesn't work on DMZPlus mode, the VPN is either using the same IP scheme, is using IPSec 50 or 51, or will not work with the 2Wire gateway.
