Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)

2 Answers

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?

I have a 2-wire 1800HG Gateway connected to my desktop system in the garage. I want to link via WIFI to the 2700HG-B DSL modem that my ISP provided for internet service... that one's in the house about 50 feet away. Basically I guess I need the 1800HG to function only as a "client" (?) on this home network, so I am also guessing that I only need to enter the SSID and WEP code for the 2700HG-B into the 1800HG system setup???
Again I'm only guessing. If this is not possible, my plan B is to just run a cat-5 wire between the 2 buildings and connect the remote PC to one of the ethernet jacks on the 2700 that's connected to phone company DSL service. (thank goodness I left extra pulling strings in that underground conduit last summer!!) hoping the distance is not too long (50 ft)??. Plan C is to shelve the 1800HG Gateway and just get a PCI wifi card for that garage PC.

Thanks in advance for any ideas, your advice is much appreciated

P.S.
You can get into the normal control panel for the 1800hg typing "home" or 192.168.1.254 into your web-browser and http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J01&THISPAGE=J38&NEXTPAGE=J01 for the MDC (Management and Diagnostics Console) from any computer directly connected to it.

Try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.

Can you please tell us more specifically what the main problem is? To my understanding, it is a wireless connectivity problem with your iPod Touch. It's just a simple to check. Go to Wireless Network Settings or Wi-Fi settings of your iPod. Make sure it can see or detect the signal from your 2Wire. You'll just need to manually connect to it and enternet WEP key or Network key which you can find at the bottom or side of your 2Wire modem. That's the 10-digit code. If you have it entered, check the TCP/IP settings of your iPod, make sure the IP Address is set to Automatic or DHCP as well as the DNS Servers. That should fix it.

2wire gateway signal range problems


1. Put the router in the highest location possible in the house.
2. Make sure the gateway is installed in the center of the house rather than in a corner of house, so it will cover area on all sides.
3. Make Sure you dont have any devices that may interfere with the signal eg. cordless phone , close to the gateway.
4. Use channel 3 or 7.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

2wire 1701 HG Gateway wireless not working


Hi,

There could be a lot of possibilities why you lost your connections at the same time. Could be windows update or changes had been made in your 2wire 2701 HG.Its impossible to say that your wireless adapters turned bad all at the same time.As what you observed , wireless light is off meaning your 2wire doesnt detect any wireless connection. You can try reconnecting them 1 at a time by going to your wireless connection tool or network connections.

If that didnt help, you can use your PC w/c is connected using the USB connection. Using this step, you 'l have a chance to edit and view your wireless network. For you to access your 2wire you must know what your 2wire address {default gateway}. Using your hardwired pc go to start > run > type in cmd then hit enter > on the Dos command screen type in ipconfig and hit enter> youl see your default gateway . It would look like this 192.168.1.254 for example cos sometimes it would vary depending what ISP you have, Open your fav browser and on your address bar type in your default gateway. That would lead you to your 2wire page, there youl have a chnace to view you home network. Check if your wireless encryption and you network name if everything is still the same. {Best thing is to change your wireless name or SSID. Then try to reconnect on your wireless connection for each computer and make sure you have your wireless encryption.

Hope that helps. Pls let me know asap if you need clarifications.

Cheers.

the IP address must be different on the router & extender but use the same subnet mast. The extender has to have the gateway set as the IP address on the router.
