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

1 Answer

Lose DSL connection a lot!

ATT "upgraded" me to their 2wire DSL router.  But everytime, I send a lot of requests to it like opening up webpages, the DSL connection crashes, and the DSL red light starts to blink.  I get the Gateway Broadband error page saying to check if the phone is interfering, but I am using a DSL filter on the phone.  It's the same DSL filter that I had with my older DSL router, and that never crashed when I was opening up web pages.  
What's going on?

Unplug you dsl and your router. Wait 20 seconds. Plug your modem back in. Wait until the DSL light turns green. Then turn your router on.

you probably need to update the firmware, just follow the link on the router's admin page. if that dosn't take care of the problem you likely have a grounding issue.

Wireless system strength on laptop away from router


I don't beleive it's your dsl, It seems to be a problem with your router, since it sounds like it is not broadcasting well. Consider a new router before ridding of your ATT DSL.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

DSL (2wire modem) and LAN conflict


You can actually try accessing the interface of your gateway and put it on DMZ mode. That way it will open the ports on your gateway to ensure passage of all data from your gateway to all your computers even when the dsl is on. But make sure tat you have security software installed on all your computer workstations bec. putting your 2WIRE gateway on DMZ mode will expose your connection.

2Wire-3700 dsl red light blinking after a thunderstorm


Hi,

If you are att customer, you will be charged $60 only if there is problem inside your premises, otherwise they wont charge you.

Is there any phone connected with your DSL line? if so is it working? if its not working, contact customer support and tell them its not working

If the phone is working, you have to check the connections between the phone line to the modem. As the DSL light is blinking red, its the problem with line and not the modem.


Take care

ATT 2wire 2701 HG-DSL lite on, but bad connection


If you have a 2wire HG2701 it experiences problems. You will need a new modem or a new router. I have one but it has the same problems. I went to FRYS Electronics and bought an speedstream modem. WORKS PERFECTLY
