First check for any computer that is connected to you modem.
try to access your modem gui or software
since you have a 2wire modem go to the wireless setting page
then configure your wireless settings
you can call your isp for the correct wireless setting configuration

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help


att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

Connecting to a "2WIRE" wifi connection. Says the


Hi,

I understand that you are having trouble connecting your Nintendo DS wirelessly to your 2Wire router. The solution is simple, your Nintendo DS only supports WEP (Wireless Encription Passkey) security. It is highly possible that your 2Wire router's wireless security is set to WPA. That means you will need to reconfigure your router so that it will be utilizing WEP as a security for your wireless connection. To be able to do this, you need a couple of information from the one who setup your router. 1. User name of your router 2. Password or your router.

Once you have gotten this information, you will need to access your router configuration page through one of the computers that is linked to your 2Wire router by typing http://gateway.2wire.net on the address bar of your browser.

It will be asking you for the username and password. If nobody had setup or changes the username and password of the router, use this default username and password of a 2Wire router. Username: (none) Password: Wireless or Username: 2Wire and Password: (none). Try any of the two. If it does not work, try admin and the word password for the password or any other combinations of the two.

Once you have entered the router's configuration page click the Home Network Tab and then click on Wireless Settings. You will see there a portion that says Wireless security. In that area, you will see a drop down where you can choose what kind of wireless security you want on your system. As I have said, the Nintedo DS does not support any other wireless security setting but WEP. That means you will need to change the drop down to WEP. That also means after changing this, you will need to reconfigure your other wireless devices (like your laptop) to use WEP as well.

If you are trying to connect to the wireless from this said PC and you do not remember the wireless password, you will have to reset the router and set it up again. This time, write down the password in a safe place, or use something you know you will not forget... Drivers license number, License plate number..... something.

I cant get my computers linked up with the 2wire wireless router. the computer recognize the router but the passwords are not accepted


The passwords your computer requires is the router's encryption key ie. the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 key.
This encryption key can be retrieved or changed in the wireless settings of your router.

Where is the wifi password for my 2wire wireless router. trying to connect my iphone 3g for faster internet


the default wireless passowrd or network key is located at the bottom left of the 2wire router. You will find a sticker that indicates the Serial Number, System Password and Wireless Network Key. The Wireless Network Password is is the 10 Digit Code located under the S/N.

If in any case you want to personalize the Wireless Network Key. You can access the gateway by opening a browser the type 192.168.1.254 it will ask you for a password use the System Password on the sticker. Click on Home Network then Click on Wireless Settings. You can also change the Network Name or SSID, The Authentication and the Wireless Network Key

Cannot connect IPhone to 2wire :( HELP!


I had this exact same frustrating problem. The problem was a simple password issue. Although I had changed the password on the modem to my own personal one, that password only affected the administrator settings. When I used this particular password on my iphone it would put the checkmark next to the 2wire, but I would not get the wifi symbol at the top of the screen. I fixed the problem by using the 10-digit password supplied on the actual router instead. I told my iphone to 'forget' the network, then reselected it and when it requested my password I typed in the 10 digit number and 'presto,' i had wifi symbology! I hope this helps.
