Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

1 Answer

Wireless hookup I have recently bought a new computer and wireless printer. The new computer is also wireless but I chose to hard wire using the ethernet cable. Problem is the printer keeps asking for a network key and I have tried all three numbers on the bottom of the 2Wire router and the printer does not recognize any of them. I didn't have any trouble when I first got my laptop. It found the router and the network key right away. Any ideas why it wont work with my printer? The printer is a Lexmark 9300 all in one printer. I want to go wireless so that I can print from the laptop when I am in another part of the house. Thanks for your help.

192.168.0.1 in your browser will take you to the router set up, you may have to enable printer sharing as well, but you can assign a key there or have it assign one.

How do I connect an epsom Wf 2010 wirelessly if I do not have the installation disc


If you are using Vista, Windows 7 or 8, just hookup the printer and Windows should auto sync up the printer with the correct driver and IP addressing. Make sure WiFi is on the printer. If this does not work hookup a USB printer cable first to get the printer Com port working with your computer

Have a computer with a new lynksis wireless-b router. i am running windows xp but dont have internet to the computer (minus the wireless) how can I install a driver with no cd or internet?


If you do not have the drivers on media, then you will have to obtain them first. Can you temporarily hookup wired and get them downloaded? or use a usb flash drive on another computer to access and download the drivers...

Hi i have a lexmark all in one printer,recently i changed my router and now cant connect the printer wirelessly to the computer!


You will have to reconfigure the printer with the router and then reconfigure the PC. All routers don't have the IP address range. That might be the reason why it isnt working after changing the router. Also, if you were using the printer wirelessly, the SSID (network name) and the wireless security needs to be reconfigured to match your new router. The simplest way to achieve this would be to connect the printer hard wired to the router; uninstall the printer drivers completely from the PC; and run the setup disk again. The setup will walk you through the whole process.

Please get in touch if you need further clarifications.

Printer connection to the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G


You bought a router for your printer? Or you have other computers you need to connect to the internet.

If you have more than one computer than you hookup (or connect wirelessly) your computers and then network yor printer so that document can be printed from any machine on your network. If this is not what you are looking for feel free to fill me in on more infomation.
