1. the command you are using is incorrect it is : ipconfig /release >>> then ipconfig /renew
at the DOS prompt.
2. to get to the DOS prompt you will need to type "cmd" in the search field the hit enter
this will bring you to the DOS screen.
3. unplug the Ethernet cord for 30 seconds then reconnect it
4. go into the router via a browser window / in the address locator enter 192.168.0.1 this
should bring you to the routers GUI ( graphical user interface) then from there go to the
router status page and use the "helps" to lease/ renew the IP address assigned by the
router.

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.

How do I hook up my 2wire router?


Run a 2-strand or 4-strand telephone-wire from your telephone wall-jack to the telephone-port on the router.
Run an 8-strand "straight-through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet cable from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network port on your computer.
Connect the AC power to the router, and turn it on.
You now should have Internet access.

Or, telephone the Technical Support department of your Internet Service Provider, and get them to help you, step-by-step.

I am using the Dell Latitude D620, When i am connecting this machine on network I am getting 100 MBPS connectivity, but when i am connecting other machine to the same network port I am getting 1GBPS...


Hi Ajay,

The LAN (wired network) connectivity speed/data rate depends upon the networking hardware (Laptop Ethernet Cards, Switch, Router etc.).
To get 1Gbps connectivity you must have 1Gbps ethernet (LAN) card in the laptops. As Dell Latitude D620 has 1Gbps card, the problem could be with the switch or router, which may be having 100Mbps and 1Gbps ports, depending upon the equipment you are using and it is recommended that you check out the its full specification. If you connect laptop to 100Mbps port you can only get 100Mbps speed. To get full speed, it is required to have 1Gbps support at both ends.

Will a 2 wire dsl router 2701HG-S work with cable modem


No, not the way you want it to. The wan(internet) port on the 2701 is an rj-11 that will only connect to a phone line with DSL service. There is no way to use this as a router with your cable modem. You need a router that has an ethernet (rj45) port as the wan port.

2701HG-B lights went out and then power died


I've had good luck with that same 2wire router, but Att is right, the ethernet & internet lights should stay on. Have you tried moving the ethernet connector to a different port on the router? If they're going out, some component inside is failing, but it could be specific to that one port, and you may be able to use another without a problem. (Just a thought.)
You can contact 2wire support directly from here, if you choose.
And there's a full user's guide with some troubleshooting options and diagnostic tools available (to some subscribers) here.
But it sounds like it may be time for a new router...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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.

Connecting my router


Ok, so the ethernet port on your DSL or Cable modem has to be connected to the WAN port on the router first and foremost. Then I would suggest that you connect the ethernet port on the laptop to port 1 on the router, and attempt to log in that way. Bring up your browser (Internet Exploder, Netscape, etc.) and type 192.168.1.1 (if that doesn't work try 192.168.0.1, Linksys switches it up) in the adress bar... and ensure that you can get in that way. Then try surfing the web to see if it connects correctly... although you may need to speak to your Internet Service Provider to ensure that they are allowing your MAC Address to connect to their Network... the one under the WAN settings, NOT the LAN settings. It should look like this... MAC Address: 00:01:81:52:3f:99
