Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have a 2700HG-D, which I have been using with Qwest DSL service. I am now changing to Comcast cable service, and I will need a wireless router. Is it possibe to use only the router feature of the 2700? Can I connect the cable modem to the 2700 somehow and get a wireless signal? I'd like to avoid buying a new router if possible.
I am also facing the same switch from Qwest to Comcast... and yes, I too have a 2-Wire Gateway 2700HG-D. Did this router configuration work? If it's not reliable or unstable, I guess I'll need to opt for a new wireless router. Thanks in advance!

There's a way to make the gateway act as a router only but it's not really recommended since there's a possibility that the connection will not be as stable as it should.
anyways you can try the following steps in making your gateway act as a router (not really a router but just a switch and a wireless access point).
- access the router's web user interface by typing http://192.168.0.1 on your web browser
- then click on the "Advanced Configuration Settings"
- select the "Transparent Bridging" option (note: you must configure your wireless settings first before trying these steps since you might not be able to access the gateway's page anymore once you save the changes)
- set the vpi to 0 and vci to 32 if it asked you for those settings. next to 'ATM PVC Search' select the radio button next to Disable. ensure Bridged LLC is selected next to 'ATM Encapsulation'.
- then save the settings
- connect now the new modem to one of the ethernet ports of the 2700hg-d using an rj-45 or an ethernet cable
hope this'll help you.
