Can you run a seperate router for your dvr and another one for computer wired connection

It's hard to tell exactly what you have but it sounds like you have DSL on the 2wire. If everything is hard wired you can use the LAN Ethernet ports on the Belkin as a switch. You should to assign a static IP on the Belkin for management purposes and shut off its DHCP server. The static IP should be something in the range assigned by the 2wire but out of its DHCP range. Like You will not need the WAN port on the Belkin. After you reconfigure the Belkin connect the Ethernet port on the 2wire to it. Along with your PC and DVR. I think it has 4 LAN ports so that will leave one open. It would probably be easier to buy a switch at the store.

Where do i put my activation code

You have to connect to your 2Wire box through a web browser (gateway.2wire.net) And once you're inside the configuration page of the 2Wire, you should see the "key code page" to enter your activation key code.

Change ip

Your IP address is assigned (leased) to you from your internet service provider. With that being said, you could possibly call them and ask to release your old IP address and have them assign a new one. If you happen to have a static IP address assigned from your ISP you can call them as well and ask to have your IP address changed too. It would be up to them to change it though.

I want to allow port forwarding for remote desktop

You will need to enter the router setup menu and allow port forwarding there. This requires some knowledge of how the router works. An easier way of doing what you want is to install teamviewer on both computers and then you will be able to do what you want without any configuration. download onto both computers from here www.teamviewer.com

I have a 2wire att router that loses internet connection

try this it worked for me. If you use Chrome go to tools, options, under the hood and un-check Predict network actions to improve page load performance, I have no idea why this worked I just know that I have not lost my service since I did this. I stumble around a lot and was always getting the message no broadband service or something of that nature. One time chrome suggested that I try this (no idea why chrome suggested this) so I unchecked the box and now I no longer have the problem of loosing my connection. I was loosing my connection a lot 10-20 times an hour. Good Luck

How do I boost the

for wireless signal 1st thing to consider is the EMI's (eletro-magnetic interference) anything that is near that modem that produces static electricity, radio frequency and magnetic energy (eg. cordless phone, speaker, anything electronic...) isolate the modem at-least 6 feet away from this said EMI's.
2nd you may check on the the wirelss settings on your modem's GUI(interface) see the link:http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=view&article=60
wireless channel and power settings and the only once you should change... channel such as 1,6,7 are sometimes used by other device (wireless phone, neighbor's router) power settings: as you place it on a higher number it gives longer distance but gets thinner space(area)
consider the red signals as you place the power higher the signal gets longer but thiner.
lastly wireless doesnt penetrate walls/ glasses it only bounce back and forth to it... so less wall or interference the better chance of going directly to the access point...
if you really havea big house try consider buying wireless booster/repeater...

Wireless hookup to att 2

Hooking up to a 2wire is easy, on the back of the 2wire in the WEP number, (ten digit number). Turn on the Roku and on the settings menu look for the network setting, find your home network and put in the 10 digit WEP number and connect.

My at&t 2wire router dsl

Hello, there could be a few things causing this problem. The router could be defective, or just died or you may not be getting enough power over your line from ATT. I would call ATT and ask them to test your line and see if everything is working properly. If it is, then you need to replace your modem/router. Any Dsl Modem and Wireless router will work.

Thanks for using FixYa!
