2wire 1000sw modem

I have a 2wire modem directly connected to my computer and all three lights are green. I called Yahoo and spoke to all of their "top" techs and they said that they cannot figure out why I dont have an internet connection. When they had me ping my computer to yahoo.com it sent 4 packets and only received 2 back. I do have a wireless card in my computer as well and used to be able to at least pick up the neighbors internet connection and others in the connections window. but now I do not see anything in that window. It says I have a connection but no green bars showing the strength etc.

Try running the system setup wizard found at the main page of the modem UI by going to gateway.2wire.net, make sure you got the correct keycodes for your dsl dynamic/ static ip, then verify if you have the correct username & password on the ppp authentication page. after the modem has established a connection, go to homeportal/management, then configure the wireless channels on the modem. (wireless channels = 11, power settings = 10, SSId broadcast enabled. SSID/ network name should be 2wirexxx, where xxx stands for the last 3 digits of your modem serial no.)for additional info go to support.2wire.com you can also ask your ISP to access the 2wire's MDC for you.

Ethernet light is green but continuously blinks is there a problem with modem or ethernet cable?


no, a green light means there is a connection with the network and dns server (gateway to the internet) information is sent allow this network in bundles called packets. Each time a packet is sent the green light blinks.....sometimes when many packets are being sent in succession the light will appear solid. so i wouldnt worry, the green lights on your router and computer are normal and you should become concerned if these lights turn yellow or stop blinking completely.

Hi - My 2wire 1701 gateway has steady green power light and steady local network light but the broadband link light is steady amber. My computer is receiving the WiFi signal but I cannot get any internet...


The broadband link light tells you the status of the connection between the modem and the broadband servers in your area. Green means everything is A-Ok while amber means your modem is not picking up a broadband signal.

Try turning the modem off and on and also make sure the cables are secure while you're at it. If the broadband light is still amber, the only thing you could do next is to call your internet service provider.

Adding another computer to network


You can have 4 PCs connecting to your 2 wire 2701hgv or 2700hgv wired or wirelessly. Make sure the DSL light and the internet light is green and lighted up
For wired connection, just plug in the RJ45 cable to the ethernet 1,2,3, or 4 and the other end of the RJ45 cable on your laptop LAN card or network adaptor
For wireless connectivity, SSID is 2wire followed by the last 3 digits of the SN(or serial number) and the WEP key is located at the bottom of the 2wire modem in between 2 bar codes in square brackets. If the WEP key and the SSID was changed before in the modem page, go to the modem page and see what is the latest SSID and WEP key using RJ45 cable connected

2 wire 1000sw


Hi!
Kindly check if you are using the same 2wire power adapter that came originally with the whole package, also try plugging it in another power outlet, like the kitchen or bathroom, & see how long the power light stays on. Plug it straight in the wall socket. If power light keeps going on/off even if you have plugged it in another power outlet, maybe you need to restore this modem back to its default settings. That can be done by doing a hard reset on the modem, push the reset button (found between the ethernet & usb ports), but be sure you have a record of your username & password on your internet account.

2wire HomePortal - green power light blinking


disconnect the power adapter. Reinsert the power adapter directly into the wall socket. Remove any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these items are not preventing the 2wire's proper operation. make sure you are using the power adapter that came with the modem. Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.

2Wire 1701hg gateway- Broadband Access problem


hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)

Hi,

XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care
