  • Anonymous Aug 09, 2008

    I have the same problem as kotaman, the network adapter just won't install. My computer won't recognize the device and the add hardware wizard won't use the drivers I downloaded from the 2wire website (for me it's the vista x64).

    I've followed the steps listed by Bubbabear64 but none of them have worked so far, but I do appreciate his help :)

    I'm wondering if there was some ending solution to this problem since the last message at June 23. Thanks for the help!

The problem is, that 2wire and AT&T, like most companies that get too big for their britches, **** big fat eggs! I found the drivers by using to view a past version of "", which looks to be the last version of their legacy drivers page. The driver and manual links for this adapter and others are there, but doesn't host files. You have copy and paste just the 2wire part of the direct links for the drivers from Not surprisingly, the files are still right where they were on, they have just removed the page that links them.
At some point 2wire will probably remove the files, but until then, here they are: Windows XP

    Well now I feel dumb... I just noticed that the legacy drivers link is still on the 2wire page. Sorry 2wire :) I think I must've been so mad after scouring AT&T's website that when I finally got to I couldn't see the link right under my nose....
    Moral of the story...don't post when you're mad

    Does your product appear on this page:

    This is different than the last one I gave you.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 19, 2008

    Do you see your model number on that page?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 20, 2008

    Click on the driver link next to the picture and download it.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 21, 2008

    If you have a jump drive you can dowload it from one computer and upload it to the other.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Can you send my the link you are using to get these files?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Put those files onto a folder your hard drive called 2wire. You will have to create the folder.

    If you plug the device in and it searches for drivers have the installation wizzard point to c:\2wire. It should read ZD1211BU.INF first and then the other two if it needs it.

    If that doesn't happen I'll tell you how plan B works.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Press the control panel. Select add hardware. Select yes I already connected the hardware. See if there is anything with a red x or a yellow circle. If that matches your network device click on it and have the drivers install from the c:\2wire folder.

    It no network device is found press back and select No I haven't added the hardware yet. If it doesn't detect it after this, select the options for network devices, press have disk, select the c:\2wire folder. Then plug the device in.

    You will have to restart the computer once install is completed.

    If this doesn't work, there is something wrong with that device and it should be looked at. It may have a power problem.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Resart your computer and see if that recognizes it.

    It almost sounds to me after going through all that trouble there might be something wrong with it.

    Where did you get it at?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    It could be the wireless device isn't working. Do you have a way of getting a new one?

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Your doing it the correct way. I think there is something wrong with the wireless device.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Whats the model number of the device. I'll go the site and check it out.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    Can you send me a picture of the wireless device to

    I want to make sure I got a good match for it.

    I might give their tech support a call too.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 22, 2008

    I have to approve your address for earthlink. Then I should be able to take a look at it.



  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jun 23, 2008

    I'll get back to you on this.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jul 05, 2008

    I'm glad youre back I had a funeral to take care of and lost track of you. What was your facebook page to see the picture.

    I noticed there were two other people this with 2 wire issues this week. I have a feeling this product is heading on the down spin.

2wire wireless usb adapter installation for desktop

You are attempting to install a (brand name) 2wire wireless usb adapter, normally the SBC DSL CD is ONLY what you would use to set up your SBC DSL modem. You should have a specific 2wire CD that you put in your CD Drive when you want to install the 2wire wireless usb adapter. Can you locate this CD?

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.

I used this one:

This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.
