You need to install either an "airport card" in your system or if you already have one in your computer, you need to download "airport" from the apple website. This is the only way MAC's can receive wireless signal.

So, both computers are on the lan segment of 2wire? How many lan ports on 2 wire? Can you do ipconfig from the command line on both computers to see what the addresses are? In most cases, the first 3 octets xxx.yyy.zzz.### should be the same. If not, then 2wire is configured for vlan and the computers are actually on different lan segments & cannot communicate with each other.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot is to ping each other's address.
You have to first establish there is communication between the 2 systems before troubleshooting further. Otherwise, you could be wasting a lot of time.

How do i set up to print wireless through the 2wire modem


One of the computers ,the ethernet computer, is set as the print server. If you mean that your printer is wireless, then the modem is not part of the printing process.
The computers talk to the printer for wireless printing. Check the printers manual.

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

D-Link DP 311U wireless setup


Had same problem. Got it to work!!
I have DLink DP-311U and 2Wire Gateway router/modem 2701HG-B.

Solution: Connect DP-311U to router via network cable.
Then you can see it either with PS Admin or with browser http://192.168.0.10 should be default IP address of DLink Print Server. Set Connection Mode=Infrastructure, ESS-ID=2WIRExxx (xxx is your number of the router) - this is your network name, and wireless channel=1.
And the most important - change your IP Address to 192.168.1.xxx - xxx=choose a number over 64 if it's not taken already.

On your Gateway page: http://gateway.2wire.net/xslt?PAGE=J46&THISPAGE=A02_POST&NEXTPAGE=J46
Set Network Name=2WIRExxx, WIreless Channel=1, enable SSID Broadcast, Disable wireless network Security.

Once you get those numbers in, check connectivity with above programs with cable connected, or typing new print server IP address in browser. Then disable cable and check again. You should be able to see the box. Then connect print server to printer and make sure your printer settings on computer point to new IP address.
