Re: pc can't find 2wire system
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
i have read the same problem on the supportrix forum and you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.
note: configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix

Hey pkkern, . Your default 10 digit security is located on the bottom of your router. . If you want to change it or for some reason your default key is no longer working we will have to get into the routers configuration homepage. . To access this open up your Internet browser and write in this address, (which is your routers address) 192.168.1.254. . If your routers homepage does NOT open up check to make sure you have no software firewalls . Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Homepage.
. Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a
Glance) under the Wireless Settingsheading. . You will see a wireless network security section, use the following information to select a custom wep-key. . Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you
want to change to a custom WEP key. 64-bit
hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length.
(For example, 123456789A is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit
hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For
example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters
for 128-bit encryption.) 64-bit
ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example,
GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption) 128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13
characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13
characters for 128-bit encryption.)
Thanks for using fixya! If you need information just comment in this thread and I will get back to you, don't forget to leave feedback! Cheers,
1. If the Operating system is a 64 bit operating system and you try running a CD that is geared to a 32 bit operating system it will not work properly. It is not compatible. Drivers for the device are 32 bit and your operating system is for 64 bits.
Listen, you do not need that CD! This is already configured. That cd is for other types of troublesome operating systems that just cannot seem to get is DNS settings right such as windows XP. The cd is for XP only you do not need this with vista.
Yes there is a problem with the 2wire's wireless with 64bit vista.
I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password. To get into the 2wire: Open a Internet window Address Bar 192.168.1.254 Home network "At the top of the page" then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page" Then you are in the wireless config to change the information. What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11. Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)
Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.
Your router doesn't care about your OS, all it's dealing with is networking packets and protocols ant for that Vista 64bit is acting like anything else, there's no such thing on the brand new laptop market what won't work with a router via cable or wireless. Long story short I can tell you that it will work and if there'll be a problem it wont'be 64-bit vista itself more likely the wireless password if you don't know it. Buy that laptop if you like how it looks like and what it can do for you.
