Had 2wire and the adapter malfunctioned after 3 months, At&t (we have u-verse) would not replace the part. I ordered the netopia 3d reach and I cannot get it even installed. I have windows vista. There are no instructions or help of anykind. Can an At&t person help me, the geek squad or what?

Re: Can't get adapter to work
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.

AT&T 2Wire routers function as both routers and modems. You
can disable the router functionality by placing the router in bridge
mode. In bridge mode, the 2Wire device functions only as a modem and
forwards all incoming traffic to the device behind the 2Wire router. For
example, you can use a different router instead of the 2Wire's built-in
router by enabling bridging mode -- the router behind the 2Wire device
will get the external IP address, and the 2Wire router won't interfere.
Step 1Type "Homeportal/management" (without quotes) into
your Web browser's address bar and press "Enter" to access the
Management page in the 2Wire router's Web interface.
Step 2Provide your 2Wire router's custom password, if you set one. The router comes with no password set.
Step 3Click "Configure" under Broadband on the Management page.
Step 4Type a period (".") into the "Disable PVC Search" box.
Step 5Set the value of the "VPI" box to "0" and the value of the "VCI" box to "35".
Step 6Set the "Connection Type" to "Direct IP" and click "Submit."
Step 7Click the "Configure Services" link on the Management page.
Step 8Uncheck "Enable Routing" and click "Submit."
you dont need to install the driver for the 2wire, you just need to configure the computer to look for the 2wire, if unable to locate the 2wire from your computer, there is a problem on your 2wire it self
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.
