Question about 2wire HomePortal 1000HW DSL Modem and Network Router -1000-400210-000_LN_R (1000400210000LNR)
I work on a MAC and my 2wire HomePortal keeps conking out.
I have had to shut down, unplug everything, wait, replug everything back in and restart in order to get connection. Now it's not holding the connection.
Will a Linksys router replace the 2wire sufficiently? And do I need any other equipment for a laptop to connect wirelessly?
How bout customizing the wireless settings of your 2wire first for a more stable connection. like change the wireless name from it's default and enable a wireless security. you can also change the wireless channel to minimize interference from other wireless device near your area.
if you have done that already, try to upgrade the firmware of your router to check that it's not a firmware issue.
if you have done everything to solve your concern, it's better to get a replacement.
i believe your home portal is a gateway. if so, you also need to have a gateway to replace it and a router is not sufficient.
as long as your laptop has a wireless card installed, you don't need any other equipment
hope this'll help you.
