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.

Ipod touch 2nd gen


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.

Ipod touch connection using 2 wire 1800HG


not sure if the 1800hg is the issue log into the router and turn off the encryption temporarily then try to connect the ipod. if the router connects double check your encryption key. if not or it connects for a second and then drops may be the internal security for the router stopping the connection you may have to call 2wire to help you turn off some of the security to keep the ipod connected.

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.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

because you have a third party email account you will have to go into the email accounts and in options look for my outgoing server requires authentication and tick the box. You may also need autorization from bt as they may not allow the incoming emails. also check that any antivirus programmes arent stopping the outgoing mail and putting them in the outbox.
