My guess is that the 2wire router has a DTE plug and a DCE plug. The DTE plug is meant to plug in to your DSL modem, while the other plugs are meant to plug into computers.
If you move the plug, it might work, assuming you have an upstream and downstream connection on the router.
Failing that:
Make sure the cable is an ethernet cable and not a phone cable,
Make sure the wires are run straight through. If it is a crossover cable, it might be meant to connect a DTE to a DTE without a hub, and it won't connect a computer to a router port.
Try a different cable.
Try a different computer (borrow one, etc.)

Can you run a seperate router for your dvr and another one for computer wired connection


It's hard to tell exactly what you have but it sounds like you have DSL on the 2wire. If everything is hard wired you can use the LAN Ethernet ports on the Belkin as a switch. You should to assign a static IP on the Belkin for management purposes and shut off its DHCP server. The static IP should be something in the range assigned by the 2wire but out of its DHCP range. Like 192.168.0.5 You will not need the WAN port on the Belkin. After you reconfigure the Belkin connect the Ethernet port on the 2wire to it. Along with your PC and DVR. I think it has 4 LAN ports so that will leave one open. It would probably be easier to buy a switch at the store.

Can a 2wire 1000HG be used as a bridge?


You would need to look in the settings to see if it has bridge mode. A possible option for you. Get two wireless routers. Have one in the house where it is now. Run an ethernet cable from it into the shop (Max lenth should not exceed 300ft) Put the other router in the shop. Hook the ethernet from an Ethernet port on the router in the house to the WAN/Uplink port on the second router. Make sure both routers have DHCP enabled and they are on different subnets. So house network could be (Ex: 192.168.0.0) network and Shop (192.168.1.0) network. These will route correctly and use the same internet connection. If you need further directions just ask.

Can I connect a second computer (not a laptop) in my bedroom wirelessly to the 2wire modem that I have connected to my main PC?


Yes, you can. just make sure that the computer has a wireless capability, if not then you need to connect a wireless adapter so you could connect the computer to your 2wire router wirelessly. Another possible way to have it hooked up to your 2wire router is via Ethernet cable but depending on the distance you may need a longer cable.

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.


That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.
