There are several options for securing your wireless network, all of which you should be able to turn on by logging into your router from your web browser. Just type your router's IP address (which is typically 192.168.1.1) into your browser's address bar and then enter your username and password, and look for the applicable settings under "security" or "wireless security" or something similar.

- Enable MAC address filtering: You can enter the MAC addresses of all your networked devices, and any device not on that list won't be allowed to get on your network. The only drawback to this is that when you get a new computer or other device, you have to manually add it to the list.

- Turn off SSID broadcasting: Once all of your computers have established a connection with your network, you can turn off the broadcast feature so that other computers can't see your wireless network.

- Use WPA or WPA2 instead of WEP: Many routers offer various levels of security. WEP is the least secure of these three standards; WPA2 is the most secure. However, you must make sure all of your computers that access the network support the same standard.

I bought second hand 2wire 3800hgv-b and looking for 2wire Generic Firmware or this version 5.29.135.47 so the gateway could be use with different provider.


Hi i dont think you need to change the firmware for the 2wire to support a different provider. all you need to do is to change the activation keys

2-Wire 3800HGV-B bridge mode


Hello my friend,
You can disable all routing functions for your Home Portal. I never advise this as a course of action as it typically causes more issues than it resolves - so procede at your own risk.

- use the button on the back to reset to factory state (hold for 30 seconds)
- browse to gateway.2wire.net/mdc
- click on configure under broadband link
- set ATM PVC search to disabled
- set connection type to direct IP
- click on configure services under the advanced heading
- take note of the text under "If you want to connect to the gateway when it is in bridged mode"
- un-check the enable routing box
- submit your settings

Good Luck!

Will a netopia 3-d reach wireless adapter work with my 2wire 3800hgv-b router from u-verse?


if you are wanting to run stricktly wireless then no if your router is not wireless ready. If it only has wired connections and not wireless capable you will have to be wired into it using a cable.

Trying to connect my ps3 to the internet but need wireless route


That won't work because your old sbc wireless router 2wire gateway is also a modem. You need a plain router for Time Warner. Try Linksys router.

My Linksys network adapter is very slow to connect


Ask them to review you connection speed to make sure your getting the speed you ordered. Linksys is usually pretty good. See if it's faster WITHOUT using the wireless (plug directly into the modem). If it is I can only think of two things... Ether you need to relocate your wireless modem to acheive a stronger signal OR if your signal is strong on your adapters end, you could always upgrade to a different wireless adapter that can handle faster conections.

3800HGV-B and LinkSys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter


Because the linksys is talking about SecureEasySetup which most lynksys routers use. The 2wire 3800HGV-B button is not a SecureEasySetup button.

Computer can't detect 2wire adapter


*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver

*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number

*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N
