How Can I put 2 passwords on a netgear74 router

Why?? It would be much easier to implement multiple profiles (with individual password locking) on the individual computers, and, using windows firewall, you can limit access to specific kid-safe web portals. Just remember to set an administrator password on the system and create limited ( non-administrator) accounts for the kids.

I cannot go into my e-mail, I thought I had the wrong user name and password or forgot it. I called ATT&T and they want to charge me. They gave me the user name and password but it still won't work.

If you have an Efficient/Speedstream 5100b or 4100 set to do PPPoE:

1. In your web browser browse to This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.
2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.
3. At the login screen type in your SBC member ID and password.
4. Click Connect.
5. If everything is succesful you will get a screen that says, "You Are Connected." and your Internet light will go solid green. If you username or password is invalid you will get a screen stating such. If there are other problems you will get a screen stating, "The DSL connection is down."

If you have the 2-wire Home Portal:
1. In your web browser browse to http://homeportal/setup or to (Or on older models its
2. Put in your 2-wire system password at the prompt.
3. If they key code is not already filled in put in 522P-22P4-6262-22AT-F2NV for PPPoE and 522P-22P4-2E62-22AT-F27W for static then next.
4. Put in your full member ID and password and next.
5. Select your timezone
6. You should now be connected.
If you have another modem other than the 2-wire Home Portal or 5-LED "5100B",

Windows XP:

1. Go to Start > Control Panel
2. Double click on Network Connections
3. Click the link on the left side that says "Create a new connection"
4. Welcome to the New Connection Wizard! Click Next.
5. Choose the top option labeled "Connect to the Internet." Click Next.
6. Choose the middle option labeled "Setup my connection manually." Click Next.
7. Choose the middle option labeled "Connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and password." Click Next.
8. It asks for an ISP Name. Basically, this is just going to name the icon, so name it whatever you prefer. We usually recommend "DSL Connection." Click Next.
9. It asks for your username and password. Enter both those in, and then uncheck the bottom checkbox that says "Turn on Internet Connection Firewall for this connection." If you feel confident that you know how to turn this off later, you may leave this box checked. When done with all of that, Click Next.
10. Completing the New Connection Wizard! Check the box that says "Add a shortcut to this connection to my desktop." Click Finish.

My 2 wire is a home portal 1000 which doens't have wireless. So the easiest way to solve this is to get a wireless router and plug it into your 2 wire router (I did this) then connect the xbox 306 to that.

XP is an very good OS which will connect with 2wire without any problem.

If your computer is not able to detect modem, pls follow these steps.

* Check for damage of ethernet cable
* Try to reset the modem by using a paper clip punching into the reset button
* Even if your modem is not detected, force the IP and Default gateway

Take care
