Connecting Wirelessly with Cable Internet Provider

My ISP is TWC and they furnished me an Arris TM520G which connects to my laptop. Can I use a 2wire model 2701HG-B so that I can access the internet wirelessly?

    When I called the ISP, they wanted to charge me $9.95 a month more plus installation of a wireless modem.



    I had a Linksys Router and had success with that. We recently moved and it took a while to come across the router.



    Thanks!

    Thanks. That's what I'm going to do - keep with what works as is!

Can't connect to internet through router wired or wirelessly Belkin N750 F9K1103 after ISP dropped out for one hour


Unplug the ISP modem completely, power, and cable. There might be a recycle (a quick push) on the modem as well. Some modems have a battery backup and will stay lit, if not connect the power, reboot and then connect the cable. The modem may take a while to fully reload after reconnecting. Then do the same with the router. Only do a quick push. Holding it in will clear custom settings on the router.

You should have green on both the modem and the router now. If not you have this to inform the ISP of your troubleshooting. GL

Open your Internet browser.
Type http://gateway.2wire.net/setup into the browser's address line.
You should see your key on the setup page.



Back-Up Key Codes

In most cases, you will receive a key code from your ISP. This key code is used to activate the 2Wire gateway. If you did not receive a key code, you can use the key codes provided in the following table.

If your Internet Service Provider did not provide you with

a user name, password, or IP address to set up your

Internet connection, your broadband connection most

likely uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

and you should use this key code.

52EU-2374-2262-22AT-B222


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoE

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over Ethernet and you should use this key

code.

52EU-2374-6262-22AS-B22Y


If your Internet Service Provider assigned you an IP

address to set up your Internet connection, your

broadband connection uses static IP (Internet Protocol)

and you should use this key code.

52EU-2374-2E66-22AS-B2TW


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoA

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over ATM. In this case, you would use this

key code and Microsoft Dial-up Networking to connect to

the Internet.

How do i sync my wireless laptop to my 2wire modem


Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

Why does my computer say LAN is not connected but my ethernet cable is plugged in?


1. You possibly have lost the IP address from the ISP to your router and you will need to release/ renew the IP or you have a damaged Ethernet cord ( rare) but none the less could be damaged.
2. unplug the Ethernet cord from the connection at the wall for a few seconds and then plug it back in the wall connector.
Then try your connection. Call your ISP ( internet service Provider) and check the line to see if you have proper signal to the router.

Further instructions:
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop/desktop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Hi John
Can you actually connect to the router or is it the router not connecting to the internet? (2 completely different things)
The access code from the ISP may be the code to connect the router to the exchange.
When setting up routers it is often more straightforward if you connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable. This removes one area where many people appear to get confused.
Once the connection is all configured, remove the ethernet cable and use the wireless connection.
The routine is usually as follows. Connect the router to the phone system using whatever is provided by the ISP. Connect the computer to one of the router's ethernet ports with an ethernet cable. Power up the router and wait.
The router then goes through a routine of its own which can take as long as 5 minutes sometimes. Once the router has synchronised to the exchange, (all the lights that come on have stopped flashing) you can then go through the set-up routine as detailed in the box with the router.
Some routers come pre-configured by the ISP and are ready to use as soon as they have synchronised. However, if you have bought a router from a computer shop it will not be configured and you have to do that yourself. It is normally nothing more than entering your network identity (as provided by the ISP) and the password they have also provided.
Once that is done and you have a solid connection to the internet (i.e. Google works) then check the wireless side.
Please note. No CDs have been used in any of the above operations.
