Probably you need a driver that came with the modem or you have to adjust settings for wireless support / detection.

I have a 2wire 2701hg-b router....I can connect to the internt through wifi on my laptop but when I try to connect through ethernet on my desktop it says it accuirring signal. I tried to reinstall the...


First look in device manager and verify that the network adapter is enabled, if so you can try disabling it then shut down and reboot the PC.
Once booted, go back into device manager and enable the network adapter.
Run the software that came with your router and follow the steps provided.
Make sure your network cable from your router is NOT connected untill instructed to do so.
You will need to have the network cable from your modem connected to your PC for the router software to detect network connection.

Good luck, I hope this helps.
Have a nice day.

Cable and wireless question


Not possible, since the "input" to the 2WIRE modem is a 4-wire telephone-line, not an 8-wire Ethernet cable.

Instead, spend about $40 to buy a D-Link Wireless G modem, and connect its WAN port to the cable-modem, and connect up to 4 Ethernet cables to "wired" computers, and configure the "wireless" component of the D-Link router.

Can't connect to internet thru 2wire modem on new computer


check the ipaddress. go to start -> run -> type ipconfig and hit enter. if you have a 169.x.x.x then you have an invalid ipaddress. if you have any other address go to start -> run -> and type ping google.com. if you recieve replies then the problem is browser . if you dont get replies then check your dns and verify with your isp that that is the correct address. if all checks out then call your isp and tell them they need to replace the modem wether is cable or dsl.

Why does my 2wire modem often show disconnection


Wireless network requires the modem to be placed at such a place so that there are not too many things come in its way. Eventhough the modem works for few time , putting the modem at top place not covered by so many things would make the modem works better and not to stop often.
