How to install to att 2wire 2701hgb modem router


Plug power cord into back of modem and then into an electrical outlet. At this point you should see the lights on the front of the modem beginning to come on.


Check the front of the modem for a solid green DSL light. If the light is still blinking, allow a few more moments before proceeding to step 5. A blinking DSL light indicates a break in the network and will require the help of your service provider if it does not turn solid green.


Open your internet browser and type the default gateway into address bar. The default gateway will be provided by your service provider. Newer model 2Wire modems automatically direct you to the installation instructions when the browser is opened.


Click on "Run System Setup Wizard" in the lower right-hand corner. It may require the system password. This password will be provided by your service provider.


Select your timezone and click 'Next.'


Enter your ISP provided login information and click 'Next'. This should authenticate your credentials on the network and complete the installation.

How many pc's can a 2wire gateway 2701hg-b


generally 4 at a time, but I don't know if there's really a limit, but you'll be sharing your bandwidth, which will slow down your connections.

To find out, open the prompt window and type the following:

ipconfig /all (notice the space) - hit enter.

Find the Default Gateway IP address.
Open Internet Explorer, and type the IP address above into the browser field for going to web pages. You will now be able to check the router yourself.

The ip may be something like: 192.168.2.1 - check it out.

3.Look and check if any value is greater than 240ms,if so then there is some latency problem which can be either due to the website or the Internet service provider.

2wire 2701HG-S Embarq to AT&T


that is typically a bad username in the modem, you will have to put there temp user name in for registration for the DSL. and after that you can put the username into the modem that you created during the registration process. Should be taken care of.

Wireless


Your can try changing the channel of the wireless signal by accessing your 2wire Homeportal's interface. try changing it using these recommended channels: 1,5,9 and 11. The channel is usually defaulted to 6 which most of the time conflicts with other high frequency devices.Hope this helps. If you are unsure on how to access your Homeportal's interface you just need to know the default gateway of your device. just go to start>run>type cmd>click on ok>then on the blinking cursor just type ipconfig/all and the number's beside the default gateway is the address of your 2WIRE Homeportal.Just simply open a browser afterwards and access those numbers you found on the cmd prompt. and it should show you the interface of the 2WIRE device.

Switch from WEP to WPA wireless protocol


First have a computer directly plugged into the 2wire

Using windows xp: click on start> then run> then type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Skip the vista section if you are using xp
Using Windows Vista: click start> then click on the search bar and type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Once you find the gateway address, you now have the website address you need to get to your 2wire. Open internet explorer and type that default gateway address in the address bar.

This should take you to a 2wire homepage. At the top click on the "home network" or "local network" tab at the top.
Once there, click on the wireless network link at the top. It will prompt for a password, if you do not know the password, click I forgot for a hint. Click I still cannot remember if the hint doesn't help, it will ask for a system key, which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the 2wire.

After entering the password you will be in the wireless settings window where you can change the security type to any available that the 2wire has, if it doesn't have it available call the provider and see if they have a firmware upgrade available.

2WIRE 2701 router


You must log on to the browser interface of the router (usually for 2wire they use 192.168.1.254) run the set up wizard it will come to a screen which asks for a key code, this key code is provided by your ISP, you can try one of these and see if it works
if you have a PPPOE connection (you have a user name and password to log on to the internet with use this one.

5225-26Q4-2262-22AS-B28F

if it is not PPPOE use this

5225-26P4-6262-22AS-B2E7

to manually configure the router use this

5225-2374-WG62-22AS-BJ7P

If these do not work call your internet provider and ask them for the key code.

after that you should be all set.

2wire 1701HG Gateway Router VPN Setup


Go to http://gateway.2wire.net and click on the firewall icon. Click on firewall settings and, if prompted, enter your system password to reach the advanced settings page. select the computer that will function as the VPN server. In the left column, select PPTP server. click on Add, then done. or try changing the IP scheme to the 172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 schemes by accessing gateway.2wire.net, go to home network icon, then advanced settings. but if you manually configure or disable dhcp, be sure to write down the subnet mask & IP assigned to the 2wire then click on save. if all else fails, run it on DMZPlus mode, however this solution will allow all inbound traffic to the computer. if it still doesn't work on DMZPlus mode, the VPN is either using the same IP scheme, is using IPSec 50 or 51, or will not work with the 2Wire gateway.

Cannot reset 2wire 1000hw IP


The fact that you receive an IP starting with 209.154.. could also coming from the fact that the DHCP server inside your 2wire has a problem or that your 2wire changed some setting. 
I would like you to open internet explorer and put the following address:
http://gateway.2wire.net/management
If the above address doesn't work, press Start, Run, type cmd and press enter.
At the prompt type    ipconfig /all  and confirm that the Default Gateway has an IP address similar to 172.16.0.1 or something else; if there is no value means that there is no communication with your router and we have to verify the hardware.

If there is an IP address on your Default Gateway, try to ping it by typing  ping xx.xx.xx.xx   change the xx with your Default Gateway IP address.
If you are not getting any reply means that the router doesn't communicate again, if you see some reply means that you can probably access to your router by opening internet explorer and entering the following http://xx.xx.xx.xx  where xx is your Default Gateway address again.

Please let me know up to where you can get some result and then we will continue from there.
