Using 2 wire software, I installed the network adapter to communicate w/my residential gateway (#3800G). The adapter installed fine, but the network would not send back connectivity info (SSID?), so I got "little or no connectivity" message and could not access the internet. Hardwired (ethernet) machines (2) work fine. I've tried all the Uverse help tips, including manually installing the network, but to no avail. Do I need to have the adapter send a password to the gateway and, if so, how?

Re: UVERSE 2WIRE 802.1 LAPTOP ADAPTER
Try to acquire an address from the router by performing a ipconfig /release command, then ipconfig /renew at the command line. If that doesn't work then you may have to manually enter IP address and DNS address and Default Gateway address in the IP Properties page of your adapter. Could be your present address is using APIPA or Windoze Automatic Private IP Address of 169.254.x.x

Disconnect the HomePortal power adapter from the wall socket.
Reinsert the power adapter plug directly into the wall socket.
any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these
items are not preventing proper operation of the HomePortal.
Make sure that you are using the power adapter that came with your HomePortal.
Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.
Press the red factory reset button, if available.
You need to have at least one computer connected to the HomePortal that is able to access the main GUI (http://gateway.2wire.net).
You can do this by either running the HomePortal Setup Wizard software
(included with your HomePortal) and following the on-screen
instructions, or manually configuring the network adapter for DHCP and
obtaining an IP address from the HomePortal. Determine the type of broabdand network access assigned by your ISP. Your choices are: PPPoE/PPPoA or RFC 2684 (Direct IP).
Oh my ... This is a question where I dont have to ask for more information.
Pleae connect your desktop to the router using a Cat 5 ethernet cable. I'm not a fan of USB connection for networks ... Ethernet works so much better. Do this even if you have to add a NIC to your computer.
You may find some benefit from using Network Magic, free to download and evaluate. You may like it as much as I do and pay for full extended use NM can perform all your network administrator duties. (I have 5 interconnected networks in my house that connect more than 20 computers)
Turned on the TV, but not the Uverse box and still lost the internet. Determined that it was the Panasonic Home Theater wireless speakers which operate at 2.4 GHz causing the interference. Next step is contacting Panasonic to see if they have a solution for that issue.
That means the older 2wire card was a B model adapter, which can only run at 11mbps. The other laptop most likely has built in wireless or some other adapter in it that runs on the G model, which is 54 mbps. There is no way to fix this issue, other then aquiring a new wireless adapter for your older laptop.
Ask them to review you connection speed to make sure your getting the speed you ordered. Linksys is usually pretty good. See if it's faster WITHOUT using the wireless (plug directly into the modem). If it is I can only think of two things... Ether you need to relocate your wireless modem to acheive a stronger signal OR if your signal is strong on your adapters end, you could always upgrade to a different wireless adapter that can handle faster conections.
The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.
hi! sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...
anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.
launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.
on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab
on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.
under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.
under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.
under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.
confirm the settings by clicking on yes.
note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection. also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.
i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?
please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?
hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.
