I have tried also in the past, to set up a connection with this make of router with an ISP other than the ISP that supplied it and i was not able to get it to connect as i think the firmware is set to only recognise certain ISP IP addresses or MAC settings.

Samsung tv stops streaming Netflix’s and freezes


I'd be looking at your internet speed. Sometimes when there are a lot of users at the same time the speed is reduced that will cause that. Have your provider test the modem to see if it is passing the speed you're paying for.

I have an HG2701 at&t 2wire modem and have two computers connected to it. My question is can I set the bandwidth for each connection as to separate the dsl bandwidth equally between the two computers?


No, the 2Wire modems do that automatically, though not well. With modern bandwidth this is unnecessary for faster downloads. You may be thinking of port forwarding, to speed up certain downloading programs. For full instructions go here.

Can't access modem from desktop


If your DSL works on PPPOE then you need to setup PPPOE on the 2wire router with the Complete Username and the PAssword for the PPPOW connection, if your DSL works on a Local IP address like 192.168.1.254 or 192.168.1.1 then first check the gateway address of the 2wire Router, if it's in the same IP address range like the DSL Modem like 192.168.1.x the you need to change the Local IP address of the router from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.2.x that should get you up and running with the DSL Modem.

I can't get on the internet


>> do i have to call my internet service provider to activate my modem?

Yes.

Each modem has a unique "address", and your I.S.P. uses that address to authorize each DSL-modem that tries to connect to their network.

Or, if the two of you live in the same house/apartment, you should just buy a "router". Then, both computers can connect to the router, and the router connects to the DSL modem, and both of you can "share" the monthly fee for the _one_ Internet connection.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

2WIRE Single Port DSL Line Filter


i think when you purchased the 2wire modem it usually comes along with 3 sets of single port dsl line filters, try out those other filters see which one works. if the local network light doesn't come on, (are you using 2wire 1000 series?), check the network adapters in your computer, this usually happens when you are using lower versions of OS. try the power outlet in the kitchen / bathroom, if power light doesn't come on, push the reset button for 30 secs. if power light is still off or red, then you may need to replace the modem (check if it's still under warranty, if not you will need to buy a new one.) also you should be using the same power adapter that came with the modem, check the specs. sometimes if the modem is more or less than 3 years old, they could get defective especially if it's often affected by sudden power surges.

Slow speeds compared to speedtouch 330 usb modem


How do you connect to the 2wire 2700HG? Wireless or ethernet? In any case I suggest to access the mdc (management and diagnostic console) of your 2wire and check the DSL Diagnostics under the Troubleshooting Category. Check the attenuation rate of your 2wire there so you can see if external problems are affecting the 2wire. The 2wire is also a modem\router and eventough it rarely affects the speed of your connection, the 2wire Firewall might also affect the speed of your cx. Another thing to check are the electrical interference on your 2wire. EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) do affect the 2wire router greatly. I mean it LITERALLY. A great Interference can cut your signal strength from full bars to 1 bar even tough your just 10 feet away from the router. You can also check the Broadband Status on the Network at a Glance Page to check if the speed are jumping in and out. And also try to contact your Internet Service Provider or the 2wire direct technical support (1-877-3478680) for further assistance. God Bless!
