At&t wireless router 2wire 2700hg-b

This may seem strange this router has two computers on the nework one is a laptop. Both computers can access the internet. the problem is that only the laptop can access email accounts like gmail or yahoo. I believe the other computer needs something set to do his, but I dont know what or were to check. it can go to the gmail log in page or any other internet page but cant load the gmail messages page when you enter your log in details. This is also the same for any other mail message pages as i set up a new account in hotmail on the laptop but couldent get to the messages from the other computer. The browser on the desktop is firefox but internet explorer is also installed annd can be used. Firefox is set as the default browser. Has any one any ideas how to fix this so i can access email fom the desktop.

I guess you probably aint set-up a wireless router before, what you need to do is get it connected up so you revieve local area is connected then, load internet explorer you will recieve a message like page not displayed. where you usually type in www.ebay.com for example type in the number thats on the bottom of the router ie it looks somthing like this 192.168.1.1 for example. a menu will then appear, fill in your broadband username details etc and you should be up and going, if you have problems feel free to email me,, All the best John [email protected]

Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.

SOURCE: Suddenly lost internet connection on 2Wire DSL modem

hmmm...only thing that makes sense here is that your dSL is unhappy...did you check that phone line into the modem? that's what the internet light means when it's out, actually..if its not the line, then it's the modem..

not much else that is off on this.

SOURCE: e-a-mail security problem?

I have experienced this same pop-up. I have been a Yahoo mail client for the past 14 years and I can tell you with a certain level of confidence that this is something you don't need to worry a about. It's a conflict between the yahoo mail server and the yahoo messenger server.

A way to get around this issue is to do a static ip address for the other devices in your home. You'd have to connect to the router and set it up, i believe its by MAC address and you assign the IP.

make sure both computers are on the same workgroup.. make sure you have the firewall settings to allow incoming connections to your shared files... make sure you have allowed acces to them in windows security panel..if you can access the media then you are almost there with the setting... fasted way is to right click on start choose explore then right click on drive or folder you want to share and then choose share from menu.. it will change your firewall and security settings so long as you have already turned off the windows advisor..

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect


first of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

Firstly you may simply have corrupt cookies preventing your internet connection, so go to tools in internet explorer and select internet options and delete temporary internet files and cookies. If you are able check that the network card is working by typing your routers ip address in your web browser and look at DHCP clients and see if your problem pc's ip address is shown. It could simply be that your pc's ip address lease time as ran out, so go to start>run and type ipcongig /flushdns, this should clear the network card settings. Restart pc and and try connecting again.
