2wire 1800hg wireless gateway/router not functioning...

All 3 indicating lights are dead. However I checked the power supply and it is putting out 6 volts. Are there any internal fuses?

    Same problem as the OP. I can also measure 6 VDC unloaded from the power adapter. Time to try a new adapter!

Your power adaptor might be faulty.  Yes, you can measure to have 6 volts.  But due to faulty electronic component in the power adaptor, the 6 volts will be dropped to a very low level due to "loading effect"  when you connect to the router.
I had the same problem but could not find the original power adaptor.  I replaced it with a 3rd party power adaptor.  You must ensure that the 3rd party power adaptor can provide 6V output with minimum 2000mA (2 amperes) and correct connector size.

Are you using the same power adapter that came with the modem? output on it should read 5.1V. also try plugging it in other outlets; like the kitchen or bathroom, bypass all surge protectors and plug it straight into an outlet on the wall. if lights are still off, then that might indicate a defective modem. however, if one or 2 lights turn on after plugging it on another outlet, push the reset button at the back, hold it down for at least 30 sec. see if all 3 lights will turn on. if not, then you really have to replace it.

Check CNET Samsung forum. There are several posts with the same problem. A couple solutions and basic confirmation that Samsungs newest fireware is bad. I wish their support helpdesk would realize that instead of telling me to contact my router support.

1800hg 2wire modem problem!


try to use another power adapter with the similar power output aside from what came with your 2wire modem if you have one, if it works fine that means the original power adapter is busted and i think it is also covered by the warranty, get a replacement from the store where you purchased it.

oh by the way, it's normal for all of the lights on your modem or router to blink when you initially power on the hardware, usually your hardware will perform a system check for several seconds to verify if there is any problem after that, several lights if not one should remain steady like the power light, the other lights on the other hand like the ethernet(LAN) or the wireless(WLAN) will most likely flicker from now and then because it indicates activity between the modem and the device/s attach to it.

Hope that answer your concern about your 2wire modem.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

Limited or no connectivity


make sure wireless switch on laptop is on. since you are using XP, type services.msc on the run box, on the services local page go to wireless zero configuration, check if it has started automatically. then go to your wireless area connection, r. click then view available wireless networks. you shall see your 2wire network as 2wirexxx, where xxx stands for the last 3 nos. of your modem's serial no. connect to that network, it will ask you to enter the wireless key or passphrase. now type in the default wep key, that is the 10-digit nos. at the bottom of your 2wire modem right below the sn 7 it is enclosed in brackets. if you still has limited or no connectivity, check the modem if it is set to use default wep-open encryption. it is done by going to homeportal/management, type your system password, it will lead you to the management & diagnostic console page (mdc), click on wireless under local network. pls check if wep encryption is set to open and it is selected to use default encryption. you can also change the wireless channels & power settings, then click on submit. now try to connect.
Note: you can do the mdc on the desktop.

Desktop unable to launch internet explorer


Hi,

If the laptop is working then your router is probably working correctly. Is the desktop wired to the router or running wireless?

Can a 1800HG gateway in my garage/workshop link *wirelessly* to my 2wire 2700 HG-B wifi AP internet in the house?


try going onto http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J30&THISPAGE=J29&NEXTPAGE=J30 on the computer connected to the 1800hg and set the router onto bridge mode (deselect enable routing). You might be able to set the two routers to connect then from here: http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J09&THISPAGE=J30&NEXTPAGE=J09 or somewhere else in the MDC, not sure if it will work as I haven't tried it, but I hope it helps.
