Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have a 2WIRE 2701 modem and when I disconnect the yellow cord from my laptop, I can no longer access the internet. What can I try to correct this problem?
First, make sure that the wireless switch on your computer is on.
Then try following these steps:
1) Go to Start and click on Connect to.
2) Connect to a network window will appear. This window will show all available connections, which are dial-up, VPN and wireless connections, but your focus is on wireless connections. Scroll down the list and select the wireless network that you wish to connect, finally click the Connect button.
Note: If the network you choose is security-enabled network, means require authentication. One of the following will occur:
- If the network key is automatically provided by your network or system administrator (that is, the network supports IEEE 802.1x), the connection will be made automatically.
- If the network key is not automatically provided, type in the key. The key can be WEP/WPA/WPA2 encryption key.
Note: If you see the network is tagged as unnamed network, that is non-broadcast network with hidden SSID. When you make connection to this type of network, you will be prompted to type the wireless network name (SSID).
3) Once you connected to wireless network, the connection will show connected.
Then, you can go online. :)
