Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
Hi, I have just purchased a 2wire 2700 hg-b router. I set it up via the 2wire home portal set up wizard and am now able to access tiscali broadband using the the ethernet connection but i am only able to get a wireless connection at certain times and then only for a brief moment before it drops off.It may be connected to the fact that i had to set up the tiscali internet connection with the router manually as the router can`t locate the ip address automatically so as per an earlier solution on this site i changed the settings of VCI to 38, VP to 10,Encap mode to VCmux and switched to ppoa.there was a pop up at the end of the set up wizard which advised `unable to connect to configuration server` but it appears to have worked as i can connect to the internet using the ethernet.i am running windows vista and this has advised that the wireless internet connection is limited and that the settings on the router may not match those on the computer. Any advice as to how to obtain full wireless access to internet would be much appreciated....Thanks.
Well, go to homeportal/management, type the system password, and on that page you will see the management and diagnostic console of your 2wire modem. there you can make the changes for the wireless channels of the modem. under local network, click on wireless, maximize wireless channels to 11 and set the power settings to 10, then make sure SSID is enabled, WEP is set to default encryption & WEP-open, then click on the submit button on the upper or lower right corner of the screen. then click on statistics, make sure wireless is able to transmit / receive wireless packets. then try to connect to your 2wire network, the SSID is actually 2wirexxx (xxx stands for the last 3 nos. of the serial no.) if it asks for the security key or passphrase for the security enabled network, type the nos. enclosed in brackets found at the barcode sticker just below the serial no. (SN). check if you are able to connect with full access, of course the 2wire modem must be connected using ethernet cable to access the MDC.
for additional info, go to 2wire.com

Ok, if you can log into the router at all, you should be able to go to home network, and halfway down will be the wireless configuration.
assuming it's set to default wireless security, there should be a network key writtten on a sticker on the bottom of the router: You'll need to enter that code in windows vista before it will allow you to connect wirelessly.
