Question about 2wire (1000-100052-000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

Computer can't detect 2wire adapter

Because there's not a whole lot to choose from where I am, I recently got AT&T's u-verse service and was given a 2wire wireless usb adapter (model US-G-AT-02) for my desktop, and a 2wire 3800HGV-B router. Everything worked fine till I booted up one day and it said it was missing a skin. I inserted the CD that came with it and hit the repair function. When the screen came up that asked for my SN and key I used the same ones that had worked before. It told me that it couldn't connect, possibly due to a bad key. I retyped it several times till it took me straight to the 2wire wireless manager which said that it could not detect the card. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it with no success. There is also a program in add/remove programs called "2Wire Wireless LAN USB Driver" that tries to get me to reinstall the manager when I click "remove", that I cannot seem to get rid of. I've searched on the internet and found people with the same problem but no solutions. When I try using the hardware wizard on windows XP, it just says that it cannot find the right software. Plus, whenever I uninstall (then reboot) then try to reinstall, the menu from the 2wire CD asks me if I'm sure I want to UNINSTALL the wireless manager before taking me to the install screen. I tried downloading the drivers straight from their site with no success. The wireless manager and computer just doesn't want to pick up the adapter anymore. It's not a hardware problem because I tried switching it out with one from another desktop and it had the same issue. It worked fine not long ago and I haven't made any changes to the system, so I'm not sure why it was missing a skin in the first place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I have two computers with two of these adapters. Every time I swap them they seem to work, but some times this adapter just does not start. When I go to the device manager it tells me that the device failed to start and when I disconnect and reconnect it seems to fix itself some times, but others I need to swap adapters. This problem has really intrigued me, and I can't figure out why some times the device works and others it just fails to work.

    I have the same problem. Mine worked for all of one hour last night. Tonight I have the same symptoms as described in the original post. I am now using a 30 foot CAT 5 cable stretched between rooms. This weekend, I will fish a longer CAT 5 cable through the attic for a permanent connection. I will not waste any more time with this junk.

*Heres the thing youre doing the right thing install the driver, make sure that you remove the the 2wire wireless manager in the add/remove program and leave the 2Wire Wireless LAN USB driver

*To connect your computer to the 2WIRE router make sure you know your SSID or the network name and the network key, if you call the AT&T Uverse tech support they will ask you to configure the wireles network key to your phone number

*The default SSID is 2wire and the last 3 digits of the serial number of your Router and the Default Netowrk key is located @ the bottom of the router theres a sticker and it is under S/N

You don't have to excuse yourself - we all started at some point.

The main problem with your setup is that your desktop has to be on in order to print from the laptop.
What you in general have to do is to '''share" the printer with your laptop.

I will assume that you are running Windows (XP or Vista) on both of your computers.

  1. Go to Start -> Printers (on your desktop computer!)
  2. Look for the printer you want to share.
  3. Right-click on the printer icon and choose "Properties"
  4. Go to the "Sharing" tab.
  5. Select "Share this printer"
If your laptop is running Windows 95.98.Me, or 2000, you have to install "Additional Drivers".

This is a very general description. If this doesn't work or you need more details, come back here and leave a comment with the following details:
  1. What is make and model of your printer?
  2. Which Operating system is installed on your desktop and on your laptop?
I will be able to be more specific, if I know what we are dealing with and maybe there is a better solution possible. Maybe the above mentioned steps are working for you, in which case I wish you "Happy printing!"

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

So, both computers are on the lan segment of 2wire? How many lan ports on 2 wire? Can you do ipconfig from the command line on both computers to see what the addresses are? In most cases, the first 3 octets xxx.yyy.zzz.### should be the same. If not, then 2wire is configured for vlan and the computers are actually on different lan segments & cannot communicate with each other.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot is to ping each other's address.
You have to first establish there is communication between the 2 systems before troubleshooting further. Otherwise, you could be wasting a lot of time.

CANNOT INSTALL WIRELESS G NOTEBOOK ADAPTER


- check if the adapter met the system requirements - uninstall any previous wireless adapters installed in the computer
- insert the adapter - wait if the adapter gets detected - if it's detected it'll ask for the setup CD. - run through the recommended option first and if it fails choose the advanced option - manually browse for the drivers that your system requires using the CD - if it still fails, try downloading the most recent the drivers for the adapter - if it fails again, try installing the adapter to a different computer. - if the adapter still won't work with the other computer its defective

2-Wire 3800HGV-B bridge mode


Hello my friend,
You can disable all routing functions for your Home Portal. I never advise this as a course of action as it typically causes more issues than it resolves - so procede at your own risk.

- use the button on the back to reset to factory state (hold for 30 seconds)
- browse to gateway.2wire.net/mdc
- click on configure under broadband link
- set ATM PVC search to disabled
- set connection type to direct IP
- click on configure services under the advanced heading
- take note of the text under "If you want to connect to the gateway when it is in bridged mode"
- un-check the enable routing box
- submit your settings

Good Luck!

Can't get adapter to work


Hi,

Please, plug the network component to a USB port of your computer. Wait a few seconds to see if it detects it. If it does detect it, you will see in the Network section an icon for the wireless card. To make it easier to troubleshoot, here's a link to Microsoft website.
