If you are on windows vista it could be your driver. You can go into safe mode on the computer with F8 while the computer is starting up, then go to the control panel and device manager. Plug the adapter in and remove the driver for it. Download a new driver at http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=download and install it.
Please ensure that your PC is updated to accept/connect to USB devices in your (O/S).
Download your USB DSL modem driver at this link: http://www.zhone.com/support/downloads/drivers/
You have to check your modem specs though. It looks like this: ADSL+, 6211-I2, Bridge/Router. etc.
After you download it, install the driver (plug out the modem and plug it in back. The USB detection will initiate, and ask for driver. Use the downloaded driver and it will say NDIS Remote Driver..... THIS IS FINE. You may have to go to network in control panel and make your fine tuning as you require (setup lan icon, firewall, etc). Thats it !
PS. Yes it does work. I just installed it about an hour ago, USB and all, WindowsXP 64 bit !
1.can i use my 2wire 1800hg with vista?hooked up to ethernet connection.- yes its possible make sure you enable dhcp on your lan side of you router and under tcp/ip on your pc set it to authomatic assign IP address and dns server address. most router use 192.168.1.1 as thier default address to access it.
to fix your passkey problem.need to access the router and try to change the passkey then save and don't forget to restart the router after you save it,by unplugging it. "make sure your passkey is 8 characters long"
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?
If you connect with an ethernet cable, you don't need any additional drivers at all. You just need to have a browser connected to »192.168.1.254/ and a product key. The 2Wire has a built-in wizard which you can access with the browser, and it will guide you through the setup. The product key is obtainable from a number of sources, including the 2wire web site, although you should look to your ISP's web pages first if they provided the 2Wire.
If you don't have an ethernet adapter on your computer, you might want to consider purchasing one of those inexpensive ethernet cards. Ethernet seems to have a lot fewer problems than the USB route.
