Re: 2wire 802.11g/b Wireless
What's your ISP name? for list of activation keys or keycodes go to: http://www.2wire.com/?p=268 as for the serial nos. well every product has its own unique serial no. and you can't change that; it's every product's unique identity.

I had to reinstall my 802.11b legacy 2wireless adapter. installation went fine until I had to enter the sn and wireless encryption key off of unit. These numbers are on wireless unit but have letters. The software won't accept what is written on unit. What do I do?
Introduction ============ This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.
STEP 1 - Driver Installation ============================
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.
STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration ===============================
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.
*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver
*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number
*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N
enter the serial number and encryptian code as directed to configure my
2wire wireless PCI Adapter and it does not recognize it. You can find all the drivers and the manual for your Wireless Adapter here: http://www.2wire.com/?p=331
you cant change the wep key on the upstairs pc unless you change it on the 2wire 1st. the pc wep key has to match whatever the 2wire has it set to. go to the 2wire router settings throught the downstairs pc that is working to be able to see what the wep key is set to, then when you get the key or set a new one enter that key into the upstairs pc.
I have installed 2 2wire adapters with no problem. When using config software utility, don't select gateway (if using only adapter), then continue until sets up. No serial # required unless using a gateway, which is not needed to connect to wireless.
