My 2WIRE router won't give out wireless signal.


Unplug the ISP modem and the 2wire, Check ALL cables and reseat connections, plug in the ISP modem, wait for selftest, plug in wireless, wait for selftest, does your wireless SSID show in Available Wireless Networks on the Laptop? Can you connect using a Ethernet cable to verify it's getting a signal? Contact your ISP and have them verify the signal, have a ISP tech come out to analize the signal, it may be outside?

Windows 7 driver


No driver needed since it does not need to be installed into Windows. Connect the ISP modem to the main port. DSL or Network port, depending on your service. Then connect your PC to any other port. That's it!.
To adminstrate. Open a web browser and go to 192.168.1.254 Alternate Admin URL: http://gateway.2wire.net/setup/
There is a small reset hole if it already has a password. Hold it in till it cycles. This will clear any custom settings/

New download of windows 7 won't retain or create internet connectins


Ok, this is conflicting... won't retain or create!! Doesn't it have to be created to retain it?

Did it connect before you downloaded windows 7? Exactly what happens when you try to get on the internet? Do you have the wireless switch on the laptop turned on? Do you see your wireless router? If so did you put the password in correctly? If not, it will never connect.

I want to know if my 2wire 2701HG-B supports WPS or AOSS? I'm trying to connect my laptop to my wireless printer but it goes through a Wireless Network which is my 2wire router obviously. If my router...


As long as you do not have your laptop set up on teh 2701HG-B's DMZ everything should work. I have the 2701HGV-B, almost the same except my can do VoIP, and I have my laptop running wirelessly and I can connect to the network printer.

Make sure the printer has a static IP address for your local LAN, which should be in the 192.168.X.X scope, or the printer will change IP addresses every time it resets and that will cause you to lose connection to it from the laptop.

As for WPS, there should be a sticker on the side of teh 2-Wire that has a 6 digital key number, all numbers no letters, that will be the WPS key.

Hope that helps.

Your class geek is not much of a geek. The computer can loose the wireless settings quite commonly. Open the wireless connection window as below:

right-click the network you are trying to connect to and click properties and then the security tab. You should get this window:

Change the encryption type to WEP and enter your router's WEP key. Click OK and you should be able to connect. OK?

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:
  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.
