    I was told to check if my drivers are up to date and I did that and they are but my 2wire will still reconnize the wireless network in our church

  • dalewaite Jul 02, 2008

    That's not it either, as I had the local computer store that repairs are computers at church look at that and could find nothing wrong with the configuation on the router at church. Would having the disks that came with 2wire solve my problem. I no longer have the disk as I got the computer 2nd hand. How would I get a copy of the installation disk?

    I have the same problem. The 2wire adapter was connected to a Qwest modem. I bought a Belkin router and the 2wire couldn't find the modem. It was able to see six others in the neighborhood. I have a wireless laptop that will connect to the Belkin router. I have the software that came with quest and tried to change the installation where asked for the last three numbers of the serial number and the ten digit code. It would only accept the ones needed to connect to the quest router M1000.
    I still haven't found a solution. I've called 2wire and Belkin.
    Sorry, Let me know if you find a solution.

    I finally found the answer at least for me. I purchased a program from www.purenetworks.com called Network Magic. It cost basically $30.00 was easy to install and took care of all of my network problems and now if someone comes over and logs onto my network it will show right up on the program screen who is logged on and what software they are using.

Are you using 2-wire's software to search for the wireless newtwork? If you are try switching it to the windows wireless newtwork utility, and vice versa.

    Can you provide the model # of the belkin router at the church? I can try walking you through the process of making sure it is broadcasting it's identity. If it is broadcasting then we know it's a problem with your card, if it is not broadcasting all you have to do is set it to broadcast and you should be all set.

It sounds like the administrator for your church's network has turned off SSID broadcasting in the router as a security feature. You would need to contact them to find out the network SSID and then enter it manually into your wireless client software. The other option is to ask them to turn the SSID broadcast back on temporarily so that you can connect.

The problem may lie in the church's router... can other wireless devices see the church's router being broadcasted? if not then there is an option in the router that will turn broadcasting on...
If other devices can see the router's wireless broadcast and only your 2wire cant see the router then it may lie in the 2wire's software... or windows, try restarting the wireless zero service in your control panel > administrative tools > services" restart wireless zero here and try to use windows' search again...

you can also configure your 2wire to specifically connect to the router in your church but you need to do this manually by putting the ssid and wep keys when creating a new wireless connection...

Hi

It seems issue has a simple cause, Most likely Hidden SSID has been assigned at router side or Wireless Mac filtering, But since you have confirmed your 2wire network card works great, we should check the your wireless settings at Router. You can access router with already connected computer by typing 192.168.2.1 (it can be different as you can see on gateway info). Please let me know the outcome. If you are unable to resolve we can still discuss it further here or on the phone. Good Luck

    Another option be sure you get the WEP key entered correctly.One important thing to check your local area connection and make sure it will automatically obtain and IP address. Just go to control panel>network connections,right click "local area connection"and go to properties . Highlight the "internet protocol" entry in that box, and click properties.Verify that both IP and DNS are set to obtain automatically .If that's set and you have your WEP key in correctly, it should work......

Try to reset it .You can always reset the router to factory default settings. Keep in mind you WILL LOSE any changes you have made (whether it be wireless configurations, port forwarding settings, etc). But, if that doesn't matter to you, resetting it will allow you to start from scratch. You must know what your Internet settings should be: whether dynamic IP, static IP, or PPPoE so you can get back online.

note the passphrase you can change that if you log into your router and adjust the wireless settings. You would need to do this from a machine that is already has connectivity or hard wire the laptop to the router. To do this type 192.168.2.1 into the address bar in Internet Explorer of a connected machine. If you have never adjusted this, the password should be blank and you can just proceed.

Navigate over to wireless settings and the security setting and change the passphrase to whatever you want. If there were any wireless computers working on the network previously then you will need to update the passphrase on them to reconnect.

To actually reset the router, there should be a small pinhole button labeled "reset" which you will need to depress for at least 30 seconds, probably more.

Add wireless router to my wired router 4 port (2 free ports) for my 2 laptops


To add wireless to your wired router, you need an Wireless Access point. And when you get it you have to set the MAC address of the router into the Wireless Access point, in order for them to talk to each other. An Access point will probably cost you more than it would if you purchased a new wireless router. I would buy a wireless router, and sell the wired router on Craig's list or something.

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
