Question about SMC Computers & Internet
I've reset the modem firmware accidentally. Now it can not connect to the internet. Lights are turning on without any responsibility. Reset Button doesn't responed
SOURCE: SMC barricade g and timing out
just a few things that can be checked, firstly in the routers settings look at the transfer speed of the router(not the connection speed) and see if it's set at 108MBPS, if so your wireless network cards on your pc's may only be able to connect at a maximum speed of 54MBPS, unless you have the latest 108 or 125MBPS g type cards. Secondly you should be able to check the wireless signal strength by the icon in your task bar or software you use, as if you have thick walls or objects in the line of the signal from router to pc's, the strength drops and can read low and therefore cause you to lose internet connection entirely. You can also try changing the channel at which the router runs, normally this is channel 2, but trying channel 11, which is the farthest away from appliance interference may give you better results, but both router and network card channel numbers will have to be changed.

I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.
Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...

First, power down all equipment.
Second, plug in power to modem, let all the lights come on and boot up
Third, plug in the router power and let that boot up and the lights come on
Fourth, Plug in each pc to the ports labeled 1-4
The WAN port should be connected to the Modem also.

Are you sure your modem is giving a WAN IP from your ISP? Try power-cycling your modem with your router unplugged then bring up your router next, if you havent tried that already... After that try connecting your modem directly to a PC and set your NIC card to DHCP and see if you get an IP address thats routable to the internet (i.e not a private IP)

Don't tell me you tried to upload the firmware from a wireless connection.
It's probably bricked. You could act stupid and send it back to Netgear, claiming it just died...(it did right?) and in the meanwhile, Staples is selling 624's for $40 this week.
