Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

Can't connect to 2WIRE


I had a similar issue. Here's what I did; Directly connect to the router via ethernet cable; I went to Start>Programs>Accessories>Run; then type in ipconfig, look at the number for the default gateway and type it into your browser's address bar (mine was 192.168.1.254). Now that your in the router, click on the Home Network or View Home Network. At some point it might prompt you for a password. Click Wireless Settings near the top of the screen. From this page I changed the channel to 6 (not quite sure if it did anything) and changed the Power Setting to 10.
After that I was able to connect wirelessly.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem


Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com
