Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

2wire 2700hg-b wired router wont allow setup of Linksys WAP54G access point

When in the setup of the WAP54G Linksys Wireless Access Point, the setup software is not able to detect the WAP on the network to setup. Is the router not compatable with Access Points, or is there a setting that must be changed in the router??

Thanks

The ip address of the 2wire router might be different from the ip address being used by the wap54g (ip address is 192.168.1.245 by default) that's why it's not being detected.
you need to directly connect the wap54g to a computer and set the computer to use a static ip address (ex. 192.168.1.240) and run the cd that came with the wap54g. you need to set the ip address of the wap54g to the same segment being used by your router to make them see each other

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

Internet connection is fine when my PC's connected directly to the modem. The router connects fine. But won't let the wired PC online. Under the "status" bar the "router" tab won't show the correct...


here are times when there is a need to connect a wired computer to an access point in order to set it up. To connect a wired PC to a Linksys access point, follow the steps below. Step 1:
Connect the PC to the Ethernet port located at the back of the access point.

Step 2:
Assign a static IP address on the computer. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
The Access Point can be configured in four different modes:
  • Access Point
  • Access Point Client
  • Wireless Repeater
  • Wireless Bridge
The Access Point mode allows wireless clients to connect to the access point and routes traffic between the wireless and wired interface. Use this mode to create a standard wireless Infrastructure network. For instructions, click here.
The Access Point Client mode allows this device to act as a wireless client. You can connect a wired PC to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly. You can enter the MAC address of the Access Point or use the Site Survey button to select the Access Point you want to connect.
NOTE: The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to the Access Point Client. For instructions, click here.

What is the access point security for the 2wire Gateway. Wpapsk or wpa2psk? 2wire 3800 Series Gateway


You need to turn on SSID broadcast in the HomePortal and use WEP not WPA for the wireless encryption code.

So have a hub and a wireless access point at office.
Do u have a router in the network at office ?
The default IP address of the WAP54G will be 192.168.1.245.
The Sonic firewall is a different thing.
I think you are accessing the set up interface of the sonic wall with the IP address 192.168.1.1.
Where is the access point connected ?
Is it connected to the sonic firewall ?
The access point does not have the DHCP server.

Can i use my 2700gh-b dsl 2wire wireless modem as wireless router to time warner cable? If so, how? I'm a newbee. Please help! Thanks in advance.


This Router designed for DSL internet. It wont work for cable internet. Best thing is to trade in with a normal access point or wireless network router. Like Linksys, Belkin, Netgear etc

I need to expand my att dsl coverage with an range expander but don't know which one to use. I have a 2wire modem but can't get an answer from ATT about which range expander to use or where to get it


Linksys makes a simple range expander you can use. Most expanders do not need to be connected to the network by a data cable. Just put it within range of your main access point or wireless router, and it "bounces" the signals out to remote wireless devices.
Try the Linksys WRE54G ($70-$100)

Connecting 2 wireless routers


As a wi-fi technician, it is not recommended to extend the wireless signal using another wireless router. Having 2 wireless routers will just cause conflict to your wireless network. If you still have time, please replace the router with a Wireless Access Point (WAP54G). WAP is easy to setup. Just plug it to one of the ethernet port on the back of your router and run the setup CD that came with it, that's it. It'll extend your signal.

If your main concern is just extending your wireless signal to another far place outside your house, Wireless Range Expander (WRE54G) can also be used. It is a similar device like an Access Point but its signal extending capability is more powerful than Access Point. Its also easy to setup, just the setup CD that came with it.

You can also contact the Linksys toll free tech support # at 1800-3267114 if you wanna resolve the issue over the phone. Hope that helps.

-Regards

Linksys Adapter and 2wire router


  1. ensure that a wireless connection is created in control panel on the pc, it may not even be attempting to connect
  2. ensure that the router wireless is turned ON, it may have been turned off as a security measure when no wireless pcs were used
  3. The security settings on the adaptor may be set to the office network and locked
    wep password at home is different or not enabled, so the secured adaptor will not connect.
make any changes from a cable connected pc (no chance of data loss)
access the routers settings page and check the settings,
then ensure the adaptor rom if present is set to the same settings

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G


The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
