2wire HomePortal - green power light blinking

I connect the USB wireless to the computer. I install the manager/driver. I enter Serial Number and WPA/WEP(?) number. It starts to install, then says it can't complete, be sure power light is solid green. Nothing on what to do if it isn't.

Disconnect the power adapter. Reinsert the power adapter directly into the wall socket. Remove any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these items are not preventing the 2wire's proper operation. make sure you are using the power adapter that came with the modem. Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.

I forgot my WEP key for my ps3


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I want to connect to a xbox 360 live but it asks me for a ssid a wpa and wep number where do i get those numbers from


SSID, WPA and WEP are things used to identify and access an wireless network/router.

SSID is the name of the wireless network you want to connect to.
WPA and WEP are forms of encryption/security for the wireless network. Basically it's the password to get onto the wireless network.

Most routers broadcast the SSID information, so you should be able to select it from a list on your Xbox (Scan for Networks option). If not you can also manually enter it.

The WPA/WEP you'll have to know and enter manually. If you forgot it, you can find it in your router's settings. Here's a guide to finding/accessing the password; all you need is access to a computer that is already on the wireless network.

And just in case, here's an official guide from Microsoft for troubleshooting wireless network problems.

Hope you get it sorted out!
(Personal opinion: Wireless is a pain; just use an wired ethernet connection)

I need the WEP number and can't find it. i will also take the WPA key as well. serial number on my router is CGN70F190345. MAC address is 0016B61033f8.


WEP and WPA are security measures setup by the end user. Please consult web or printed documentation on resetting router to factory defults.

Can't access 2wire network using netgear adapter


I was also having trouble with my Netgear wireless n USB adapter connecting to my new at@t 2WIRE gateway. The problem was that the netgear software wouldn't allow my computer to stay connected to my 2WIRE gateway and the software wouldn't allow Windows when restarting my computer. I have Windows XP and after hours with at@t support there was no resolution and they gave me Netgear's suport number to call 1-888-638-4327. After 10 min. the problem was fixed. They had me click start icon at bottom left corner then all programs, then highlight "start up" and if you see anything like netgear adapter or netgear start up wizard right click on it and click delete. That was it! rebooted my computer and it connected automatically!!! I'm not very computer knowledgable but I hope this helped

Not prompted for network security key


Sir,

Under 'preffered networks', which can be found on the Wireless networls TAB in advanced settings, you will see your network there. Click on it and then hit properties. Under the 'Association' TAB, you will see network authentication, choose WPA-PSK or WPA, but I will imagine that your key is a Pre-shared key. Enter it there. Data encryption will be TKIP and not AES. Go to connection TAB, and make sure the box is checked in that section. If these steps fail, then you can always change your encryption to WEP. You can do this using a computer which connects to your internet through the WPA key. Once connected on that PC, open up command prompy using the command cmd in the RUN box when you click on the START TAB. A black box will open, simply type ipconfig and look for "default gateway"...it will have a number with a few dots, like this one: 192.168.1.254.....etc. Enter this code into your internet browser search bar, and hit enter. Your internet providers interface will show up, you can find a tab which will have something to do with wireless security, and there you can change the WPA to WEP, with a WEP key of your choice. If you are prompted for a password then you should know it! Sometimes, the usernames can be simply 'admin'. If you manage to change your security to WEP, you can use your laptop!

All the best.
