LOSING SIGNAL ON 2WIRE1800HG

I had my 2wire router in the same location for 6 months and always get good connection regardless of where i am in the house with my powerbook. All of a sudden not connecting, not even picking up the router unless i get really close - is there some kind of routine maintenance i should be doing to the router??

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

I need a wireless driver for my 2wire1800hg for a gateway


I don't think you need a wireless driver. Instead inter http://home/ at the top of your Internet browser ( adress bar ). Press the Enter key on your keyboard. On the new screen click on the Home Network tab. On the that new screen look under Status at a Glance. Look to the right of the word Wireless. If it says ENABLE, it wants you to click on it to turn on the wireless feature of your modem. When you ckick on ENABLE, it turns on wireless like turning on a light bulb with a wall switch. That ENABLE button will change to DISABLE incase you want to turn it off latter.

My Linksys network adapter is very slow to connect


Ask them to review you connection speed to make sure your getting the speed you ordered. Linksys is usually pretty good. See if it's faster WITHOUT using the wireless (plug directly into the modem). If it is I can only think of two things... Ether you need to relocate your wireless modem to acheive a stronger signal OR if your signal is strong on your adapters end, you could always upgrade to a different wireless adapter that can handle faster conections.

I use 2wire 1701 HG Gateway for 3 computers. I have been using a Plug and Play network with a password. My primary computer harddrive crashed. I had the drive replaced, but I have been unable to reconnect...


Hello hopefully ican hel solve your issue i have a 2wire modem myself ans have found that 2wire products are very picky. To answer your question for 2wire products when you try to connect wirelessly it wants you to type in the wep key which is the serial number of the product otherwise you are unable to connect. Now as far as losing your password if you are able to get into the 2wire product via browser so you can bring up the main software page you can try to see if you can get too any info that relates to resetting your info like username and password. Otherwise do a search for your product and search forums and you will most likely find someone that has had to recover there info and they will tell you how they do it. Good luck

2wire Router cannot connect to K Corp KLS-611 adapter 802.11g


if you wantd to change the type of encryption from WEP to WPA...aside from accessing the modem through 192.168.1.254....this ip is used on 2wire1000hg series, 2wire1800hg, 1701hg, 2701hg-b and 2700hg-b

*then you might need to indicate the modem password
*if you know it...indicate so, if not, click on the link that says "I forgot password", it would give you a hint...if you still forgot it, click on "I still forgot password"
*after that you need to click on "home network" which is the icon on the top portion of the page
*then you need to click on "wireless settings"
*under "wireless security" you would be able to change the "authentication", whether it is WEP-OPEN, or WPA-PSK"

- you could also go to: 2wire.com for help, just go to the support section
- or you could also see some simulators if you need one on shasta.2wire.com
