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)

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.)
