Wireless network does not show up on computer 2wire
First, if no other networks show up also, then make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. Its usally a on/off switch on the laptop itself.
If that doesnt work, get a computer directly plugged into the 2wire, then login to it and change the power level.
To do this, open a browser (IE: Internet explorer) and type 192.168.1.254 if that doesnt work try these "Home" , " 192.168.0.1" , "172.16.0.1"
This will take you into the homepage for the router, click on home network at the top. Then click on the wireless settings link. This will prompt your for a password, enter it.
"If you dont know your password, click I forgot it will give you a hint. Click I still cant remember, to change it, it will as for either a system key (which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the router) or a temp password (which you need to call the manufacture to change)"
After inside the wireless settings window, try changing the power level and channel around until you can get it to broadcast.
If none of this works make sure there isnt anything around the 2wire interfering, like portable phones and electronics.
