Reformamated windows xp and unable to install my 2wire homeportal 100w
I reformatted my computer....I am unable to install my 2wire modem...It worked fine before I reformatted my system...so I know it isn't the hardware. The green light is no longer on either. I have run what I believed to be a 2wire driver...but I am not finding success. Please help.

Install the Adapter using the CD, After installing if its windows XP it will ask you to choose XP utility or Netgear utility, choose windows and scan for the network.
If its windows vista , go to start-Connect to - u will see the network name here , try connecting to it
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.
Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.
To connect more than one computer to this 2wire you will need to buy an access point (or a router, either one will do). Since the 2-wire is a modem and a router, it can support more than one computer. However, the 2-wire only has one Ethernet slot to support one computer. This is why we need an access point or a router as this will give you more Ethernet slots allowing you to connect more computers to the same Internet connection.
hi! i tried to remote access your modem using the serial nos. but it didn't give me anything, pls try to run system setup wizard from your computer by accessing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup, once you have configured the modem with your own settings, please let me know and i'll try to open some ports for you
