Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.
Some times on the 2 wire router , the network key written on the back side of the router. It might be a 10 digit number. Try to search for the number on the back side of the router.
If you do not see any then open the router set up and get the network key.

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

the security enabled in the router is compatible with mobile but not with computer this is the reason...check the security enabled in your router...64 bit WEP (open) security is compatible with all the wireless devices... by default some routers will have WPA or WEP(shared) security... these securities are not compatible with certain computers...

Is the DWL-520 Wireless Adapter compatible with the 2701 HG modem


Hi,
The 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi networking standards are generally compatible. An 802.11b router / access point will work with 802.11g network adapters and vice versa.
There is no such conflict reported with the above devices. But as suggestion use an 802.11g wireless card with the Bell as it would give you better performance

Thanks for using Fixya

I need information on how to configure my 2wire 2701 HG-B modem for wireless access


Log into your router. Click on home network. Status at a glance box, click on edit settings under wireless settings. Under setting click enable SSID and Wireless network security. Your WEP key is on the side of your router. The number above the second bar code with brackets around it.


Hope this helps you.


To log on to your router type the routers ip address into the address bar. If you don't know it....click start....run...type cmd press enter....type ipconfig /all at command prompt...press enter... look for default gateway address.... type that number into the address bar of your browser.
