Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Wireless hookup I have recently bought a new computer and wireless printer. The new computer is also wireless but I chose to hard wire using the ethernet cable. Problem is the printer keeps asking for a network key and I have tried all three numbers on the bottom of the 2Wire router and the printer does not recognize any of them. I didn't have any trouble when I first got my laptop. It found the router and the network key right away. Any ideas why it wont work with my printer? The printer is a Lexmark 9300 all in one printer. I want to go wireless so that I can print from the laptop when I am in another part of the house. Thanks for your help.

Re: wireless hookup in your browser will take you to the router set up, you may have to enable printer sharing as well, but you can assign a key there or have it assign one.

Connect a computer to this router using an ethernet cable.
Check the IP address. The default gateway which the hard-wired computer would receive is:
Open the router interface on your computer by typing in a blank address bar in your browser.
On the left column, Under WIRELESS, select security and check the security settings made (Recommended: 64-bit WEP security)
Use this info on your wireless device to connect wireless.
For your blu-ray device to work, you have to disable FIREWALL on the router, also assign static DNS under INTERNET WAN.

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Make sure your wireless feature is turned on on the computer. There may be a switch on the edge of the computer somewhere, you don't say what kind of computer it is.

Find the wireless connection wizard on your computer and run it. Find it in your network folder in the control panel.

If this is too much, post a comment to this question and we will back up and start over.

BTW, if your laptop has a ethernet outlet (looks like a big phone jack), you can wire your laptop to your router.

Computer wont recognize cable hookup

You will have to start the configuration from the wired network rather than the wireless network. Connect the computer directly to the router. I am assuming you might be trying to configure the router from the wireless network. Then use the installation CD to configure the router

Just replaced my Belkin G with a new Belkin N due to the fact that my wireless light would go on and off intermittently. The new router is doing the same and wireless light will NOT come on or stay on for...

I had such a problem recently with a terrible time staying connected. The problem was traced to poor channel selection. Even though I chose an unused channel, I picked channel 8. Apparently this is the absolute worst channel for interference from microwave ovens and cordless phones. Even though there was already someone using channel 11, the signal strength was only one bar. I switched to channel 11 and the problem went away.
I had done the same thing as you did, initially. I bought another wireless adapter only to find the same thing happening, which forced me to find the solution described.

are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?

for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.

for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)

Printer connection to the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G

You bought a router for your printer? Or you have other computers you need to connect to the internet.

If you have more than one computer than you hookup (or connect wirelessly) your computers and then network yor printer so that document can be printed from any machine on your network. If this is not what you are looking for feel free to fill me in on more infomation.

Try this link for help with networking your printer.
