I hope you have this already fixed as I just joined. The problem that you are having is because older 2wire routers are not wireless routers. I know this because I have one. The solution that I used was to go buy a cheap wireless router and I plugged it in to the 2wire router. The wireless router will then pick up an ip address from the 2wire and then all you have to do is to plug your computer into one of the wired ports on the back of the wireless router and then your wireless devices will work just great. If you still need to get into the 2wire admin stuff you can always use a 4-5 port hub/switch. To set this up plug the hub/switch into the 2wire portal then plug your computer into the hub/switch and plug the wireless router into the hub/switch. (this is how I have it configured)

Good Luck

Make sure wireless switch is turned on in the laptop. it would be great to know what type of operating system you are using on this laptop. if it's XP, go to network connections on the control panel, right click it then view available wireless networks, you should be able to see your 2wire network. if it's on vista, go to start, connect to, then choose your 2wire network. if you're running Mac, click on the airport icon, then select the 2wire. all these things will let you type in a security key, just type the nos. enclosed in brackets at the bottom of your 2wire modem (just below the serial nos.)

    what?!?!?!

    then you've got a software conflict, it's either your vista doesn't have WEP enabled on it or you may have an anti-virus software blocking the WEP encryption on your pc. Try disabling your AV temporarily, try changing the wireless channels & power settings on homeportal/management, clear out preferred networks under manage wireless networks on the network & sharing center. if these don't work disable your WEP encryption on the modem. you said you've had this problem for heck a long time and heck a lot, it could be your wireless card, maybe you need to reinstall the driver or might be some settings in your computer that is blocking it from wireless access....

    one heck of advise, DON'T GIVE UP!!!

I've connected my Router to switch and through switch i connected two wireless Netgear N150 router where my router is gateway. My Problem is I can ping from Laptop to Router gateway but unable to ping from...


The two wireless routers THINK they are directly connected to the Internet and they prevent the WAN side ports from being pinged so hackers can't find out you have a device on the Internet. The devices will let you to the Internet without any problems, why do you need to ping from the router to the WiFi routers anyway. all of that is your internal network....
One thing that might fix this is if you can put the WiFi routers in BRIDGE mode. Some routers will let you do that, some won't. Don't put the router that is facing the internet into bridge mode. hackers will be able to see your whole network.

I got a problem in connecting my samsung galaxy GT-7500 to sitecom extender 300N .. I have tried to change the IP address but it doesn't work with me . Any help plz?


Which modes are you trying to use this Sitecom? If you have the Sitecom as your Access Point (AP Mode), then you would need a LAN connection to your internet gateway (DSL, Cable Modem, etc). I didn't see any LAN hook up so I assume you are trying to use it as a wireless repeater. So you need to configure the unit differently. The 3rd mode is called Bridge mode. Again, you need to have a LAN hook up to your local network with a router or network switch.
Because your Tablet is connecting to the Sitecom okay, which mean that you either have the Sitecom setting for AP mode or Bridge mode. And the reason it didn't give you access to internet because there is no internet gateway connection to the Sitecom (LAN). I hope this answer your question (or confuse you totally).

I dont know how to get wireless internet


Check the ADSL or cable modem status light. If it is solid green, it indicates that your ADSL/cable modem has a good connection. If the light is off, check modem's physical connection.

Verify that the Internet light on your wireless router is solid or blinking green. It indicates a good connection and correct wiring.

When done, log in to the web interface of your router device and check if it can obtain the IP address from your ISP or not.

If you see 0.0.0.0, the router is not obtaining the IP address. It can happen due to various reasons. Contact your ISP and ask for the details including username, password for PPPoE etc. and try to connect to the Internet again afterwards.

You may also need to configure the default gateway settings also. To configure your router device as the default gateway, reboot your PC. When done, open Command Prompt, type 'ipconfig/all' and hit Enter. Check Default Gateway

If you are still unable to browse the Internet, ping your router's connection to the PC.

The Request timed out error can occur due to two things: (1). incorrect physical connection between your router device and the PC or (2) incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.

When done, check back if you can browse the Internet or not.

I am installing with my Sony VPCZ1 PC but cannot get past the first task which says my wireless adapter is still turned on when in fact it is turned off? I am running Windows7. Can you please help?


First;I think you need to use W7 to configure your connection with the router.
But try :
Use the PING command to test the communication between the computer and the gateway.

Goto Start > Run and enter COMMAND.
From the Command Prompt, enter PING 192.168.0.1.
The gateway should reply.

Verify that the residential gateway is getting power. With the broadband modem connected to the WAN port on the gateway, you should have a soild WAN link light. You should use the same cable that connected the modem to the PC to connect the modem to the WAN port on the gateway. Any port on the gateway that has a computer connected to it should have the corresponding LAN link light lit. If you do not get the appropriate link lights, try using different cables.

Minimum System Requirements• Cable or DSL Modem
• Computer with:
• Windows® Vista*, Windows® XP SP2*, or Windows® 2000 SP4*, or Mac OS® X (v10.4)**
• Internet Explorer v6 or Mozilla Firefox v1.5
• CD-ROM Drive
• Network Interface Card
• For Internet Access:
• Cable or DSL Modem
• Subscription with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
