1. You possibly have lost the IP address from the ISP to your router and you will need to release/ renew the IP or you have a damaged Ethernet cord ( rare) but none the less could be damaged.
2. unplug the Ethernet cord from the connection at the wall for a few seconds and then plug it back in the wall connector.
Then try your connection. Call your ISP ( internet service Provider) and check the line to see if you have proper signal to the router.

Further instructions:
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop/desktop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

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)
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 Home page.
Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.
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 encryption.)
128-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.)

Hey danielbartle,

Since a lighting storm came through there is a good chance your router has been fried.

I would first direct connect via your modem to see if you get a internet connection and rule out your modem as a problem. If that doesn't work I would try another ethernet cord to rule out your cord is a problem. If you get no connection directly through your modem, I would contact your ISP with your problem.

If you get a connection I would then reset the router by unplugging and waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in.

If still nto succesful I would reset your router to defualt settings by a small button you will find on back.

If none of these work I would head to your local computer shop and pick up a new router.

Thanks for using Fixya!

You must have the program disc to activate this system

2wire... | Answered on Jul 10, 2010

it depends on what type of OS that you are using. But the key point to this is that your computer was able to see your network, usually your network name would be 2wireXXX (the X is the 3 digit of your serial number of your 2wire modem or router. if it is asking for password or wep key. the wep key for your 2wire is the number enclosed in a bracket, that is usually 10 numbers below the serial number

Check if the wireless settings have been configured on the other computer that is wireless and remains on while the main computer is off. Once the main computer is off the local network light will go off(since it is hard wired to the modem) but the wireless light should stay and you should be able to get wireless connectivity on any other wireless device.

So depending on what you want to use for your addressing you'd enter something like this...

Router Address:
Subnet Mask:
First DHCP Address:
Last DHCP Address:

generally you would use 192.168.x where the x can be whatever value you want as long as it is consistent everywhere its used.

the last x is used for the range of addressing, first thru last, but the router is typically the first address

it means 2 things. 1st it could be the adapter because theres still power to it and 2nd is the 2wire router is already defective. if its possible for you to bring the 2wire with the adapter to any computer store or to att store and have them plug a new adapter on it . or if you have available 5volts adapter you can try to check if power will be solid green using diff adapter definitely its the adapter but if you have tried it but power will flash green or red the modem is dead. powerlight of any router should stay solid green no matter what happen.
have it checked carefully so you dont need to spend $82 for the 2wire, adapter is $10 only..

1. Firmware update may be required for the Router.
2. check your firewall settings and the Wireless configuration in the router.
3. You may have to allow the MAC address for the device that you are trying to connect with to have permission to connect to the network.
4. Verify IP for the the PC ( this is done in the DOS window) at the DOS prompt type "ipconfig /all" this will bring up the network report as to what is and what is not connected.
5. Unplug router and modem from the AC.
6. Reboot the PC.
7. Window is totally different from the router firmware updates.
Windows is downloading it security and web update when you see the prompt. This has nothing to do with the router.

Check out thenetwork setting. Try using the ping in cmd and the ip adrress of the host from the guest. Check that your network is on shared and on nonprotected mode or if protected apply proper authentication which is being prompted.

Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Click on wireless settings then set as access point as AP (access point)
enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
