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

SOURCE: Looking for a power cord

Hi guys,

Had the same problem yesterday. Went to Radio Shack and picked up a universal power adapter (Model 273-1696). It can be set for 6V and will draw the required 2000mA. Box does not include the right size plug, but the salesman gave me one that fit for no extra charge. Cost 32.99. Everything is working fine now.

Will my 2wire gateway wireless router (AT&t) support the Ipad2? My network is being recognized, and the internet tower icon is shown, but will not safari or anything else.

If you are accessing the internet from your computer through the 2wire gateway, then the problem is with the IPad settings. I have used many of the apple devices on my 2wire gateway, as well as my parent's 2wire gateway. I would suggest taking your IPad to a local apple store, or best buy and see if it will connect to their networks.

Also, if you keep it in a case, 3rd party cases have been known to block wireless signals from reaching the internal antenna well.

Good Luck!

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!

You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!

My 2wire has the power light red and the ethernet green and th wireless solid green and the dsl off and the internet off....what can i do

I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT for use with their DSL service. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at about 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

How do I reset password on my gateway 2 wire?

Straighten a Norwegian paper-clip,
and insert the end into the small hole in the back of the 2WIRE, to "reset" the unit to its "factory" settings, including the "default" ID/password.

Then, reconfigure your wireless network.

Earlier today I had a Red Power light and only a green wireless light. Now I have no lights when I plug in the 2wire router / modem. Is the equipment dead or is there something I can do besides replace...

Try the following steps:
1. Disconnect the 2wire gateway power adapter.

2. Reinsert the power adapter directly into the wall socket.

3.Remove any power strips or surge protectors temporarily to ensure that these items are not preventing the 2wire gateway proper operation.Note: Make sure that you are using the power adapter that came with your 2wire gateway.

4. Plug the power adapter into a different wall socket in another room.

5. Press the red factory reset button if available.

6. If the power light is still red, then you will need to replace the 2wire gateway.

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem

Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

Anyon know of a power supply cord for a gateway 2-wire modem for a 1800 gateway

I ran into the same problem; not many people can seem to find a power cord for these things.
I went to Radio Shack, and was told that no such replacement cord exists anywhere. I had a hunch that this guy was full of poo, so I went to the Radio Shack across town. Lo and behold, they had what I was looking for.
Just take your 2wire modem into the store and ask for a 3-7.5v 2A AC adapter. They may be hard to find, but they are around. Don't forget to make sure they give you the correct tip for the modem.

Hope this helps,
