    Is this the intial setup of this was working before?? IF this is a initial setup make sure the physical connection is correct and the modem is already configure correctly with your ISP.

    hello!



    if you dont see any stable light on any of led lights on your router, possible that the physical connections are not properly connected or the router istself is not properly configured

Try to use another power adapter with the similar power output aside from what came with your 2wire modem if you have one, if it works fine that means the original power adapter is busted and i think it is also covered by the warranty, get a replacement from the store where you purchased it.

oh by the way, it's normal for all of the lights on your modem or router to blink when you initially power on the hardware, usually your hardware will perform a system check for several seconds to verify if there is any problem after that, several lights if not one should remain steady like the power light, the other lights on the other hand like the ethernet(LAN) or the wireless(WLAN) will most likely flicker from now and then because it indicates activity between the modem and the device/s attach to it.

Hope that answer your concern about your 2wire modem.

How can i set up my 2wire 1800hg gateway modem without the disc on windows vista


your 2wire 1800HG modem has the cd-less install or Greenlight technology in it. it will automatically startup once you open a browser, (preferably IE. However, if you don't see it, try pushing the reset button at the back of the unit for 30 sec. open IE, then you will see the installation page.
NOTE: make sure you know what your username and password is... for authentication purpose...

There is no power to my router. how do i know if i need a new power cord or if it is defective unit. 2wire 1800HG older model


You can measure the power cord voltage with a voltmeter. The specifications, and voltage output are on the transformer, or modem body. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can take the power supply into Best Buy, Radio Shack, or any computer shop, and they'll measure it for you. If the voltage is ok on the power supply, chances are you have a bad modem, in which case you'd be better off getting a new one. Hope this helps.

2wire 1800HG router keeps resetting


1) Check power cord. 2wire has known issues with power cords being defective. If you have a Multimeter, I would check to ensure the correct voltage and amperage and being delivered to the router first.

2) Need to resolve the "resetting problem" first. Then attack the port forwarding issue.

Anyon know of a power supply cord for a gateway 2-wire modem for a 1800 gateway


I ran into the same problem; not many people can seem to find a power cord for these things.
I went to Radio Shack, and was told that no such replacement cord exists anywhere. I had a hunch that this guy was full of poo, so I went to the Radio Shack across town. Lo and behold, they had what I was looking for.
Just take your 2wire modem into the store and ask for a 3-7.5v 2A AC adapter. They may be hard to find, but they are around. Don't forget to make sure they give you the correct tip for the modem.

Hope this helps,
Jon

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)
