No you don't, but it pays to do this once every week, so that your ISP will issue your modem a different IP address. This will make it more difficult for a hacker to lock onto your IP address and into your computer/network.

I got 2wire G802.11g suddenly their no power on my modem, i use light tester to see if my breaker has gone off but it not i don't know what is wrong ,,


power adapter is the problem and it's a known issue for 2wire modems: if you are under an Internet Service Provided kindly contact them specially if the modem is still under warranty.
you can also try looking for a PSP power adapter... this works but not really a guarantee...

Modem keeps loosing connectivity. I have to turn off the modem and restart it to access the internet. Running 2Wire Gateway.


call your internet service provider and report first this incident. in most cases its with the service provider that has problem causing disconnection in your internet.

Take a look also with your modem device, observe when you got disconnected does led indication lamp turn off or your modem restarted itself. that could also be a problem with the power supply of your modem. better check with multitester if output voltage from power supply is dropping.

go check also the ethernet cable if this is not loose, fix it properly, you should hear a snapping sound means it is lock properly.

My 2wire modem keeps on shutting down on its own.


Replace it since its operation is intermittent and sooner or later it will quit for good.

Power cycle my 2 Wire modem frequently


Sounds like you need to call your ISP - let me guess - Rogers or ATT - and tell them you need them to reset you and also find out what your speed is supposed to be. You may have birds or a nest somewhere out side.

Connection keeps dropping quite freqeuntly after modem speed has been upgraded to a hihger speed


This sounds like the modem is not made to handle the speed that you are looking for. When you upgrade speeds on your internet connection you sometimes will need to upgrade the router

2wire gateway seems to cut off frequently? i live in goergia, and i have at&t extreme 3.0 internet. the internet and dsl lights on the gateway flash red and green from time to time, a lot! then about...


you probably need to update the firmware, just follow the link on the router's admin page. if that dosn't take care of the problem you likely have a grounding issue.

Slow speeds compared to speedtouch 330 usb modem


How do you connect to the 2wire 2700HG? Wireless or ethernet? In any case I suggest to access the mdc (management and diagnostic console) of your 2wire and check the DSL Diagnostics under the Troubleshooting Category. Check the attenuation rate of your 2wire there so you can see if external problems are affecting the 2wire. The 2wire is also a modem\router and eventough it rarely affects the speed of your connection, the 2wire Firewall might also affect the speed of your cx. Another thing to check are the electrical interference on your 2wire. EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) do affect the 2wire router greatly. I mean it LITERALLY. A great Interference can cut your signal strength from full bars to 1 bar even tough your just 10 feet away from the router. You can also check the Broadband Status on the Network at a Glance Page to check if the speed are jumping in and out. And also try to contact your Internet Service Provider or the 2wire direct technical support (1-877-3478680) for further assistance. God Bless!
