2wire router from AT&T

My 2 wire router from AT&T is not working. The ethernet works. At&T was out and one of the filters was bad.
Where can I find a 2wire router to replace what I have?

    I have bellsouth 3.0 dsl and ordered the free home networking kit so I could add another pc on the other side of the house to the network/internet. They sent me a free 2wire 802.11b/g wired/wireless router. I bought a dynex 802.11g internal pci card for the new pc. (this was after getting 5 defective linksys cards. (linksys says they cannot believe best buy is still selling these as there is a firmware issue with vista and they were all recalled 4-5 months ago according to linksys) by the way best buy still has dozens of them on the shelf at my local store. Best buy's clerk recommended the dynex unit so I bought it. I am lucky to get 1 bar of connectivity at 60 feet of distance. Best buy then recommended a 802.11b/g signal repeater. I installed this and now I get 5 bars, but every 5-15 minutes I get disconnected from the internet. I can ping the other computer on the network and I can ping the repeater, but not the router (default gateway). If disconnect and reconnect the network connection 4-5 times the internet will work for 10-15 minutes.

    Any ideas??

You don't have to have that 2 wire router if your using DSL is it the wireless gateway one with the 802 pcmcia wireless cards?
But you can find them for cheap on ebay and depending what state your in a local PC shop could locate one. The ones for Yahoo SBC/DSL will also work as replacement for yours. But you can program other routers to work with your PPPOE user name and pass on DSL if thats what your using.

Can you run a seperate router for your dvr and another one for computer wired connection

It's hard to tell exactly what you have but it sounds like you have DSL on the 2wire. If everything is hard wired you can use the LAN Ethernet ports on the Belkin as a switch. You should to assign a static IP on the Belkin for management purposes and shut off its DHCP server. The static IP should be something in the range assigned by the 2wire but out of its DHCP range. Like You will not need the WAN port on the Belkin. After you reconfigure the Belkin connect the Ethernet port on the 2wire to it. Along with your PC and DVR. I think it has 4 LAN ports so that will leave one open. It would probably be easier to buy a switch at the store.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

I have 2 Macs. A 2wire router maybe 4 year old. I constantly lose connections. I tried the 877 number and they cut me off twice.

Hi Janet
Where are you losing the connection? Between the computer and the 2wire or between the 2wire and the outside world?
Are the 2 macs the same or different (model & OS etc).
There shouldn't be an issue with the macs connecting to the 2wire (I'm assuming wireless) but if there is, try connecting them by ethernet cable to the 2wire and see if that improves things. If it doesn't then I would suspect that either the 2wire itself OR the wire outside your house are to blame.
(There should have been a spare ethernet cable (yellow or blue) in the box with the 2wire - that's if you still have the box.)

Unable to connect 2 routers need help!


Do you have any funky subnets for your Cisco router? Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.

Basically the easiest way to do this is to set a dedicated IP for the 2Wire router on the Cisoo router. Then make them stay on the same subnet, but give an IP range for your Cisco router, like 1-50 or something. If you give the 2Wire router IP .51 for instance, then give the Wifi users on the 2Wire IP range from .52-75 or something.

Make the 2Wire router only use wifi and not serve DHCP addresses. Then you setup the 2Wire router to get its info from the Cisco router.

I searched and there is no howto out there for doing this with a Cisco router. However, here is one I used to setup a similar scenario with a Netgear router. It worked. If you are able to translate a bit, it might work for you:,235,239&

Here is another article:,246,260&

Let me know if you are able to work through this. You need to give the 2wire router a static IP and you need to NOT use it for wired connections, and not use it to serve DHCP settings.

Need to connect another tower to the 2 wire modem to work fr home

To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service

It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem

Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at

Wireless yes, but ethernet no, why?????

There are two separate IP configurations for the wireless and wired ethernet adapter it could be that the two adapters may be configured differently -- the wired one incorrectly for your home.

It could be a bad ethernet cable.

It could be a bad port on the router.

It could be a hardware problem with the wired network adapter.
