Just set up new 2wire gateway router. Internet works, but not my wireless. I have a desk top and a notebook. It the notebook that will not work. Works outside the home at my work place. There are 4...


It doesn't matter which port your PC is plugged into, the router will take care of that. You need to turn the wireless system on. You do this from inside the routers configuration pages which you access through your browser. Being a 2wire router, you may have to use the software on the 2wire website. Alternatively, you can try entering ip addresses into the browser address window. Try 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.0.1 etc
Once you access the router, turn wireless on and activate the security. Enter a code key and write it down as you will need to enter the same code into every PC or laptop that you wish to use the wireless connection. Setting up the wireless connection on your laptop is easy, just tell the laptop to search for available networks and when it finds the 2wire router, tell it to connect. It will then ask for the code key. Enter it and all should be well.

How can i configure WPA security on my 2wire modem


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Where is the security code to connect to the wireless gateway 2wire?


Usually you can find the security key for the wireless on a 2wire modem/router underneath it there's should be a 10 digit key in there as the wireless security key, if you cannot find it there you need to access the router setup page and it will be better if you can contact 2wire support to walk you through in getting that key from the router page..

A friend gave me old 2Wire 1701HG wireless modem/router. It didn't come with power cord, cables etc. I found a 4.5V cord from old walkman that worked. Anyway, have ATT DSL service with speedstream 4100...


That would seem to be AT&T's favorite house brand...
Me thinks the SpeedStream was their SLOWEST
"DSL"

"2wire" was their next iteration of SLOW "DSL"

Yes... You will need to contact THEM ... or whom-so-ever is your INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (ISP)...

As I recall... the PRICE DIFFERENCE from one
service to the other was about $10 per month.

Give them your pirated modem number and they
will need to register it as a digital subscriber
in order for you to gain internet access.

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.

No Internet connectivity...


if you are using a laptop, make sure wireless or wi-fi switch is on. usually, you will see the name of your wireless network on the connect to options under the start menu, (if you're using windows operating system.) or under network connections. try to connect to that network (usually it is named 2wirexxx.) and if it prompts you to enter a pass phrase or security key, type the default wep key found at the barcode sticker at the bottom of your 2wire modem, the nos. in brackets below the serial no. is your security key or passphrase.
also check if wireless card is ok. if you are using a desktop, check if wireless adapter has the drivers installed (it also helps to know the brand of the wireless adapter....)
