Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Connection dropping every 2 hours and router resets

Have had this problem before, now its back. I saw it happen today, the DSL light went red/blinking red, then the router reset. I recently added a D-Link DGS-2208 Switch as I needed additional ports on my 2700HG. I have three computers connecting wirelessly, and two printers. Firmware is up to date. AT&T tech support had me remove the filter, no change, still resets every couple of hours. Any ideas?

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

If that doesn't get the job done after a reboot, set it to automatic IP addresses, reboot, then post this:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:


IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Very intermittent connection


Sounds more like a ISP problem than you router but try replacing the LAN cable between your modem and router then rebooting both devices (turn off wait 10 sec then on).

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

The DSL light is green but blinking and the Internet light is not even coming on. All computers in house get the wireless signal and says the internet is working, but we don't have internet access.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! What you are experiencing right now is what they called NO SYNC in ISP term. That means that your router is not getting any signal from the server. Please try to follow these method for you to be able to fix the problem.

1. Turn Off the router.

2. Check the DSL cable, the one that is connected from the router to the wall outlet.

3. Check if there's any device between them and remove it.

4. Try to switch the end of the cable.

3. Try to use another cable if possible.

5. Power on the router and wait until the DSL light goes steady.

6. If nothing happens, try to reset the router by pushing the reset button at the back of it.

7. Press and hold it for 30 seconds while the router is on.

8. Turn off the router and after 30 seconds, turn it back on.

If the DSL light is still blinking, there's a possibility that the problem is with the router itself or the line outside your house going to the server itself.

Hope this information will help. Thank you for using Fixya!

I tried to change my security to wep and it just stopped connecting so i reset the router and now there is no dsl wlan or internet light on just a power light


Let's guess. This is a DSL connection and you just reset the access to your internet account.

Find the paper or person who set the system up originally and start all over. Next time, have some sort of idea what you're doing BEFORE you press the reset button. You started with access to the router, and changing Wireless Security settings could have been undone if you went back into the box from a WIRED connection and turned off or altered the WEP code.

Good luck.

Internet cutting on and off


If you haven't done a firmware upgrade I think doing so will be of a benefit to your problem! Just remember to backup your router settings beforehand! Hope this helps!

Linksys routetr problem


HI,
The problem can be caused, because of two reasons, one the router profile on the computer has got corrupted and second the router itself. Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults.. Caution: all wireless security settings and user name and passwords would go back to factory defaults.

1.Disconnect all cable from the back of the router.
2. Shut down your computer and the DSL box
3.Press the reset button, using a paper clip at the back of the router.Keep it pressed for 5 seconds
4. Disconnect the power cord to the router
5. Switch on the Dsl box, wait for the lights to stablize
6. Reconnect the interenet cable and the power cable to the router and power it on.
7 Let the lights stabalise on the router and power on the computer.

Check if that resolves the problem, if not we might need to update the router.


Thanks

Belkin router


I just worked on one of these today. Try this and see if it helps.

1. Unplug your cable or DSL modem and your wireless router

2. Plug back in the cable or DSL modem and wait for the internet to successfully connect (watch the lights).

3. Plug the wireless router back in again and wait for it to connect (again, watching the lights)


If this doesn't work, make sure you have the equipment plugged-in in the right order.

cable or dsl signal goes to modem ==> modem plugs into wireless router ===> computer plugs into wireless router.

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds


Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.

This might take care of it.

let me know.

Random Disconnection and WLan indicator lights


Saw this on another post for this router: "in the DHCP configuration on LAN menu. the lease time was set to 72 hours (3 days) i change it to 720 hours, cos that was the most it would allow... so hopefully that would fix it. " maybe you're having the same problem. another usefull thing to do is to update the firmware from the D-link site. some stability issues such as this should be fixed by a firmware update. post what happened goo luck ;]
