First power down the router and switch it back on after waiting about 30 seconds.

Did you move anything around the house close to the router which might cause interference. Microwaves and TV's are rogues when it comes to interfereing with wireless signals

Can a 2wire 1000HG be used as a bridge?

You would need to look in the settings to see if it has bridge mode. A possible option for you. Get two wireless routers. Have one in the house where it is now. Run an ethernet cable from it into the shop (Max lenth should not exceed 300ft) Put the other router in the shop. Hook the ethernet from an Ethernet port on the router in the house to the WAN/Uplink port on the second router. Make sure both routers have DHCP enabled and they are on different subnets. So house network could be (Ex: network and Shop ( network. These will route correctly and use the same internet connection. If you need further directions just ask.

Since you are able to connect using a hardwired connection and you're able to connect wirelessly at the library, that simply means that your computer and your internet browser are fine. where is your wireless computer and your wireless located? are there any possible wireless devices interfering with the wireless signal like chordless phones, cellphone, TVs, radios, microwave oven? are your walls in your house covered with metal plates coz that would really make the signal deteriorate. the settinngs on your wireless router may also need to be reconfigured and boost up the signal of the wireless router.if only i could remotely access your wireless router, I would really walk you thru on what to check on your wireless router

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.

The new router should help because of the extended range that they have. You may also have an issue with your computers wireless device. I wiould recomend seeing if you can connect to someone elses wireless device before making the purchase of a new router. Some computers have a weak wireless adapter built in.

Getting ready to replace my 2WIRE router

The solution may be as simple as placement of the router/antenna, or it may be a configuration mismatch between the MacBook and the router. 2Wire is a fairly common router used by some ISPs, the router might be configured to use IPv4 and the Mac might be configured to use IPv6 (different address schema), or the channeling might be set different (encryption setting mismatch). Since the problem seems to occur mostly with the newer computers, I would lean more toward a configuration problem, but recommend checking the antenna first (this would automatically transfer to a new router), then check the settings. Depending on the environment of the router, the time may have come to get a new one (I have seen some last many years and some last only months).

Check that the following are set the same on the router and the Mac's:
  • IP Addressing schema
  • Encryption settings
  • Channel and frequency settings

If you are going to relace your hardware, I recommend a router with MIMO technology using the 802.11g standard. As far as the 802.11n standard, keep in mind that it has not been approved and published in its final form yet, this could mean that any technology using this "pre-standard" may become obsolete and unusable overnight.

No broadband connection

If your Not getting a SOLID dsl light this means that your user sessions are not being varified via the Radius servers at the ISP. Before giving up all hope and just abandoning the poor thing Just make sure that the Username and Password you are using for the Sync at the ISP are correct. Even ask the ISP for a Test account If this still doesnt work Try another router Say your friends one in your House if that Does work then it is Most proberly a Router Fault if it doesnt Then get on to your ISP and give them an Ear full ok.
