Since the Wireless light is off, lets assume that the access point is just switched off.

That function is switched on and off from the router's control panel accessible via web browser. And you can follow these steps to get to the Wireless configuration control panel.

Open this URL from your browser

http://gateway.2wire.net.

If you have a system password enabled (and it's asking for it) but you didn't set it, or you forgot what it is you can click the

can’t remember the password

link if the password hint does not help you. In order to reset the password, you'll be asked to enter a 10 digit code which you can find on the bottom of the router itself.

Once you're able to gain access to the control panel, you'll want to

  1. click the 'Home Network' tab
  2. click the 'Wireless Settings' link
From this panel you can make changes to how the wireless access point portion of the router is configured. By default your router's wireless should be on, but since it's not I'm going to assume at one point in time someone turned it off so it wouldn't get confused with your airport express. If you just want your wireless settings back to the default settings
  1. click the 'RESTORE DEFAULTS' button
Then the wifi settings will be set to how they were when the router was purchased. By default the access point is secured by WEP encryption, and the key is located on the bottom of the router by the Serial Number.

We just bought an Apple Airport Extreme router. After installing the Airport Utility software, and hooking up the router, we can not configure the base station using the Airport Utility. No matter what...


First time you should connect an Ethernet cable to the AirPort, and set it up with the software it came with. Then take a note of the wireless network's name (SSID) and the password (you might want to chance them to your personal preference though), security youre using (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.

ISP problem with 2wire 2700HG-B


When I purchased the same router on Amazon I did my best to set it up on my own, but you need the correct IP information you can only get from your customer support at AT&T. I'm using this router with an old Airport card in an 2003 iBook and a 2007 iMac (built in Airport express card). The set-up was all done wirelessly, with bellsouth (AT&T) customer service instructing me over the phone, the process took about 15 minutes.
My suggestion is to call AT&T and speak with someone who knows what their doing, and they do use the SBC global page to set up the unit, starting with http://192.168.1.254/ for the system summary, from there you can set up your password etc...

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

Networking a Printer on a wireless network


Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.
