Question about 2wire HomePortal 1000HW DSL Modem and Network Router -1000-400210-000_LN_R (1000400210000LNR)

1 Answer

How do I set up a home network without internet?

How do I connect the 1000HW to use strictly as a network router for my home office? I do not have a wired internet connection in the house. I have two computers (an HP desktop and a Dell laptop with wireless card) and a laserjet printer that I want both computers to be able to print to.

    What about the physical connections between the 2Wire, the host HP desktop and the HP Laserjet 2840 printer? What cables do I need and where do I plug them into?



    Thanks again!

Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

    Hi.

    It should be configured as shown below.

    You HP desktop should be connected using an ethernet cable to your 2wire console, that should work. From there you can connect your wireless laptop and printer wirelessly to your 2wire.

    You can connect your printer using a USB connection at the back of your 2wire. Now we have your Desktop and Printer connected . From there you can try to connect your wirelessly from your laptop to your 2wire.

    If all your devices are connected { Desktop- Ethernet connection, Printer - Usb connection , Laptop Wireless } than thats the time you can start sharing your printers by ff the steps provided previously.

    Pretty difficult to imagine but what i usually do is i create a diagram on a paper - draw it... in that way you can visualize how to set it up.

The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.

2wire homeportal 1000hw cannot find wireless address


Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.

Problems with 2wire HomePortal 1000HW DSL Modem and Network Router


Check your firewall setting and also your security settings for cookies. Try putting less of a restriction on your cookies. BofA and wells fargo require that they can ping you and get your IP address incase of fraud so chances are lowering your settings on your cookies will solve the problem.

You can try opening ports on the router to set it from strict to moderate. You need to be get the port numbers from the application or game provider then access the router's setup page and set it there. You need to set a static IP address on the computer / device that needs the port opened.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
