Re: 2wire modem home network
Go to homeportal/management, or gateway.2wire.net/mdc. on the management and diagnostic console, under troubleshooting, click on resets. then click on the clear button for local network to erase all the devices on the local network. go to device list under local network, make sure you only have the computer or device seen on your device list aside from system.

Connect your computer to the 2Wire modem with an ethernet cable so the modem may be configured. Wait about 20 seconds after connecting the cable from the modem to computer (so the PC can obtain an IP address) and then open Internet Explorer. Once Internet Explorer is open, type "192.168.1.254" into the address bar and hit enter. This will bring you to the modem's web interface where you can configure its internal settings.
Click on the "Home Network" tab on top and then click on the "Wireless Settings" sub-tab under that. This is where you can set your WIFI settings. Your Network Name (SSID) will be 2Wire### by default. Record this because it is the name of the network and what you will select when connecting your PC to the wireless network. Be sure to check the box to enable SSID Broadcast, which will make it easier for you to connect to later. Then check the box to Enable Wireless Security, followed by choosing your authentication and encryption method. You can choose to just leave the default security (WEP-Open) and your wireless network key (aka, WIFI password) will be a ten digit number printed between the brackets on the S/N sticker (located between the 2 bar codes). The other method would be to choose WPA-PSK authentication and use a custom key (must be 8+ characters). If you're not advanced, I would just use the Default with WEP-Open... though some techs would disagree with this security, this will provide you protection and you'll always have your wireless key printed right on the modem for easy access. This key is the second thing you should record (the first was the network name [SSID], since you will need it to connect your wireless devices to your network.
Your wireless network is now set up and secure. Just connect your device(s) to the network by choosing your network name in the View Wireless Networks utility of your device and enter the Network Key (network password) when prompted. Done!

Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "126.96.36.199" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router.

If you are using Windows XP, you go to start --> control panel --> network connections --> right click on wireless network connections & go to properties --> go to wireless network tab --> delete / remove all the networks under preferred network box then click on view available wireless or configure then connect to your network by clicking on the name of your modem --> type in the wireless password.
there is only one quick way to turn off your wireless internet access.
Turn off the modem or router if you are using it.
For your information, all home networks have their own access key, without which nobody can access it... it is normally printed at the bottom of the modem. 10 digit encryption key. Was I helpful enough??
if you brought the wireless new from a vendor. you don't need to configure it. unless you want to.
but if you brought a used one (in you case). you have to configure it. You need to get inside (software wise) of the modem. to do that you need login name and password to start with. if you don't have it, please call or e-mail the guy you brought the modem from.
then you have to configure the security for the wireless, unless you want everyone under sun to access your modem via wireless.
search on the web, you should come away with a user manual for the unit.
