Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router

1 Answer

2Wire 1701HG I've moved to the boonies and have had to switch my laptop internet service from wireless dsl (using a 2Wire 1701HG- I believe it's router/modem?) to satellite. I just purchased a Playstation 3 and would like to use the internet capabilities wirelessly as well as my laptop. How can I do this and can I do this?

Two words:
I'm sorry.

My parents use satellite as their primary internet connection. We have had a heck of a time getting a router to work in their configuration because of the lag involved in the satellite communication. In a nutshell, but the time the data gets requested and sent back to your computer through the satellite your computer got tired of waiting and "times out" or give up on that data. You can try to purchase a wireless router and connect it up to the satellite modem and see how it works, but I wouldn't hold my breath (the best we've been able to do is get it work 1/2 of the time).

By the way because of the lag of satellite communication, online gaming with your PS3 would difficult, but not impossible. My younger brothers use my parent's connection for their Wii & Xbox.

I just with the ISPs would get on the ball and roll fiber to everyone's house. I have to say I love my fiber connection!

I want use my 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router without the dsl line


Modem and routers are considered only as access point you computer may be able to connect to your router but if you dont have a DSL line you will not be able to go on line... if you dont want a DSL line there are service that concentrates on wireless alone... in this DSL line are not required nor router but may provide you a USB wireless adapter that has their wireless service then again try calling an Internet Service provider for this options...

The network appliance you're asking about is a modem with a wireless router built in. Basically, it's an all-in-one device. It will replace your already existing modem. It is a wise upgrade for any AT&T DSL connection.

I have a two wire router trying to hook up to run my laptop


You need to run from the DSL modem into the ethernet port at the very top of the 1701hg. Use your other 4 ports below to send one the computer and one to your vonage. You will no longer need to "jump" though your vontage unit. Other than connecting the power cables, you are all hooked up.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
