Question about 2wire (1000-400106-003)
IPhone and AT&T 2wire internet connection
I cannot get my IPhone and AT&T 2wire to get an Internet connection. My IPhone shows that I have wireless connection, but whenever I try to go to a web site, or check my email, Utube, etc, it says I do not have an Internet connection! When I'm outside of my "2wire router", I have NO problem picking up and connecting to any other wireless connection. Has anyone else had this problem, and how can I fix it? It is frustrating especially because the IPhone is AT&T, and so is my router!!! FYI - I have no problem with my My laptop connecting to the 2wire, wireless connection. ~Signal strength is "Excellent"!!!
It was suggested that I download the IPhone applications, (which I did) but I could only get so far... I get an "ACTIVATION ALERT" that says, "No signal detected. Signal is required to complete activation." (I have NO cell signal where I live) I finally drove to where I have signal, and "completed the activation", however, when I got back home, rebooted the 2wire router, AND my IPhone, (including putting in my 2wire password, etc.) I am having the same issue. (Showing FULL signal, but NO INTERNET connection on my IPhone).
Try this one:
>on ur WIFI networks, click "other..."
>then manually type in ur network name (if its set to default, it should be 2WIRE and the last 3 digits of ur SN. It is case sensitive so type the name exactly how it looks like.)
>make sure that the setting is set to WEP
>on the password box, enter a dollar sign/$ first and then the 10 digit code under ur 2wire
keep me posted on this one

For my 2Wire modem 1000SW the WEP code is below the S/N tag and is a 10 digit numeric code.
In iPhone Setup - Choose a Network . . . tap on WIRE339 (or whatever modem you see) and you will be asked for a Password.
-Type in the 10 digit WEP number
-tap on Join
You shoud see the Router and DNS number that you can see also in the "cmd" window on the PC the router is connected to by typing "ipconfig".
