Suddenly lost internet connection on 2Wire DSL modem

This morning my DSL connection was working fine using a 2wire modem/wireless router. This afternoon it quit working. The internet light on the modem doesn't work. I tried resetting the modem by unplugging it for 30 seconds and by pressing the reset button. I have checked all the cables. Still, I can't connect to the internet. The network message in the system tray says I'm connected at 100mbps, but whatever I'm "connected" to at that speed, it's not the internet. Bell Sympatico tech support can't figure out the problem presentl;y. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm using my work computer to access the net. Thanks for your suggestions.

    Thanks for your fast response. A call back to Bell Canada resulted in a second level technician determining that the problem was with the phone line. They said they'll have me up and running in 2.5 days. I guess the DSL wires just don't like minus 18 C temperature, more with windchill. Welcome to Canada.

    Our deal is similar. We have a gateway 2wire DSL, wireless. Yesterday AM working fine, last night gave error unable to connect. The internet light was red. So I unplugged, reset, etc. Turned off computer etc.. When came back up all lights were green, but when tried to connect to internet, same error and ligth turned back red. This morning I didn't try home computer but tried my laptop and it worked fine. So, not sure what was going on and if desktop still not working, not sure what else to try.

Hmmm...only thing that makes sense here is that your dSL is unhappy...did you check that phone line into the modem? that's what the internet light means when it's out, actually..if its not the line, then it's the modem..

not much else that is off on this.

Connected io router with excelent signal but won't connect to internet , using Beklen adapter , happened overnight.Did work well before.


It sounds as though you are using both a belkin wireless router and the 2wire 2700HG-B Router.
Setting up 2 routers to work together can be tricky and unless there is some specific reason to do so I recommend you just use the 2wire router.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

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..........

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

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.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
