2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes

My 2Wire is connected to my mum's computer via USB, and my laptop has never had wireless problems until recently I had to start randomly repairing my internet connection because it would time out. I have my network settings configured so that it gets it's dns address from my default gateway (my router) and it's using the ip address the router gives my pc. When I get onto my router, it shows that my pc is inactive, even though I'm connected to the internet. When my connection craps out, it shows that I'm still connected, but I can't access the internet OR my router. I have to either wait a minute or so, or click repair. The timeouts are random. Here is my ipconfig /all if it's helpful.....

Any help would greatly be appreciated

It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."

    I am sure there is static ip given in your computers wless ntwk connection. set it to "automatic" and then it will reflect in your ipconfig /all command results too.

Oh my ... This is a question where I dont have to ask for more information.

Pleae connect your desktop to the router using a Cat 5 ethernet cable. I'm not a fan of USB connection for networks ... Ethernet works so much better. Do this even if you have to add a NIC to your computer.

You may find some benefit from using Network Magic, free to download and evaluate. You may like it as much as I do and pay for full extended use NM can perform all your network administrator duties. (I have 5 interconnected networks in my house that connect more than 20 computers)

Thanks for using FixYa.com

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.


That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

2wire 1800hg-- HomePNA stopped working


What you can do, is take the HPNA adapter from the back of the computer and plug the phone cable portion of it directly to the 1800hg's phone port. Since your 1800hg only has 1 phone port though it will not surf the internet, but this is a suggestion to try to make sure the inside wiring in your house is not bad. If you do this though your computer should say its connected, if it doesnt then it could be a driver issue or the phone cable in the HPNA adapter (try a new one then). If its the driver then try support.2wire.com for the regular usb drivers.

Unable to actually connect to the internet?


Have you tried restarting your router? If not, try unplugging the ac power from the router, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That will usually take care of this problem. If that doesn't work, you can try going into "manage your wireless connections", delete your wireless network from the list, then reconnect to your network.
