2WIRE 2701 router

I wish to buy a "generic" 2WIRE router (cheaper than from my EMBARQ DSL provider) and connect to the EMBARQ DSL. How do I program/set-up the router to work with the DSL?

    Thank you VERY much. EMBARQ sells for $149 and I can get them for $75. Your solution seems easy enough and you explained it very well.

    Thank you, again

You must log on to the browser interface of the router (usually for 2wire they use 192.168.1.254) run the set up wizard it will come to a screen which asks for a key code, this key code is provided by your ISP, you can try one of these and see if it works
if you have a PPPOE connection (you have a user name and password to log on to the internet with use this one.

5225-26Q4-2262-22AS-B28F

if it is not PPPOE use this

5225-26P4-6262-22AS-B2E7

to manually configure the router use this

5225-2374-WG62-22AS-BJ7P

If these do not work call your internet provider and ask them for the key code.

after that you should be all set.

Will a 2 wire dsl router 2701HG-S work with cable modem


No, not the way you want it to. The wan(internet) port on the 2701 is an rj-11 that will only connect to a phone line with DSL service. There is no way to use this as a router with your cable modem. You need a router that has an ethernet (rj45) port as the wan port.

RE: My posted. Connecting DSL/Router to DIR-628 internet router


Installing a router to work as the second one on a home networkrequires special configuration. Do the following on the second routerto ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode.Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; thesemust be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for detailson its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP addresssetting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a tworouter environment. Check the second router's IP address value andreset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of thefirst router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP- To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the homenetwork, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

(My netgear router supports client mode. The 2wire supports bridged and router mode. My 2wire is the main router. I set up my netgear using my laptop. Once you change the address on the router.. You will only be able to directly access through the main router to the 2701.)

Configure your 2701 IP address to a static address in the 192.168.2.1 range and diable DHCP. Only 1 router can run the DHCP service. To disable Dhcp on the 2701.... log on to 2701> click on home network>advanced settings>uncheck enable DHCP>Next section is Public routed subinterface...Check enable and Aout Firewall Open>Input your main router address and mask>save config..

This worked with the Netgear router.. May not with your router. Good Luck! Hope this helps!
