It is always advisable to use the power cord that comes with the device. Ebay is the best place to find replacement products.

Is this an ATT U-verse and you have TV on a different box? if so you will need to contact them. If you had to have the router replaced they forgot to re setup the system as the two devices work off each other somehow.

For what application?

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.

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

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:
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...

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.

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!

there is no need to install drivers , for wireless use the 10 digit number key from the bottom of the modem (inside a bracket ) , for configuration , you can do it manually in a hard wired computer by using IE and typing or on address box .

However try this link also:

You can increase the range of your router but you need to purchase another wireless switch. What you have to do is buy a wireless switch and grab a computer network cord and plug it into your 2wire modem. I would advise just turning your the 2wire's wireless off. If the new router isn't strong enough you can buy directional antenna's or larger antenna's which should help with the range issue.

Unfortunately you can't purchase an antenna that you can directly attach to the 2wire.

Make sure that the switch you buy has external antennas that you can change out. If not and the range isn't strong enough then it could cause more headaches down the road.

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
