    Can you provide more info on the "2 wire gateway router"?
    Can the wireless client find your network when you scan for available networks?

Need more details.
Generally, first you need to turn on the wireless option in the gateway. Go to \\home or \home (depending on browser). Then go the Network option (no the broadband option), click of wireless settings, and make sure you have this enabled. That should atleast give you the basics. Anything further, please see the 2wire website and get the manual.

How do i set bridge mode?


Depends if you need a wireless or wired bridge?

Here is some info for you.

Infrastructure Mode

With a wireless Access Point, you can operate the wireless LAN in the infrastructure mode. This
mode provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network devices within a fixed range or
area of coverage, interacting with wireless nodes via an antenna.

In the infrastructure mode, the wireless access point converts airwave data into wired Ethernet
data, acting as a bridge between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple Access
Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further extend the wireless network coverage. As a
mobile computing device moves out of the range of one access point, it moves into the range of
another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point domain to another and
still maintain seamless network connection.

I am trying to connect my Dlink DKT-401 router to my Linksys cable gateway router. I am not getting internet access when connecting to the Dlink network


I DON'T THINK YOU CAN RUN 2 ROUTERS ON THE SAME NETWORK UNLESS ONE IS USED AS AN ACCESS POINT.
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration.

Internet connection is fine when my PC's connected directly to the modem. The router connects fine. But won't let the wired PC online. Under the "status" bar the "router" tab won't show the correct...


here are times when there is a need to connect a wired computer to an access point in order to set it up. To connect a wired PC to a Linksys access point, follow the steps below. Step 1:
Connect the PC to the Ethernet port located at the back of the access point.

Step 2:
Assign a static IP address on the computer. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
The Access Point can be configured in four different modes:
  • Access Point
  • Access Point Client
  • Wireless Repeater
  • Wireless Bridge
The Access Point mode allows wireless clients to connect to the access point and routes traffic between the wireless and wired interface. Use this mode to create a standard wireless Infrastructure network. For instructions, click here.
The Access Point Client mode allows this device to act as a wireless client. You can connect a wired PC to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly. You can enter the MAC address of the Access Point or use the Site Survey button to select the Access Point you want to connect.
NOTE: The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to the Access Point Client. For instructions, click here.

When typing 192.168.1.1 into my address bar I get a not connected error screen when I am connected. Trying to find the wep key to set up an xbox


On your computer, open a command prompt (Start>Run> type in CMD), and the type in "ipconfig" without the quotes. This will give you the IP address and the default gateway. Type the IP of the default gateway into your internet browser (it may not be 192.168.1.1). If it still doesn't work, try putting https://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. If that still doesn't work, then make sure you're connected to the router with an ethernet cable and not over wireless. Some routers do not allow wireless client computers to access the configuration page. Good luck.

2 wire 2700 hg-b


The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

i asssume that you have connected the ethernet port of the modem to the wan port of the router. if that would be the case, yes you need to connect the computer to the lan port of the router to get internet access. that it if you want your computer to be directly connected to the router. but if you're planning to connect wirelessly, you just need to make sure that your router and computer have a wireless capability and your computer.

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service


It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.

Netgear WG602 wireless router,


Hi, Assuming that the WG602 is fully operational, when you did a hard reset, the router reverted to its original factory setting as you posted. The default pre-configuration: act as a DHCP client; if the WG602 does not find a DHCP server on the Ethernet LAN, it defaults to this IP configuration: DHCP Client - Enable IP Address ? 192.168.0.227 IP Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0 Gateway ? 0.0.0.0 Your PC need to be connected via a LAN cable to one of the Ethernet ports of the AP/Router to be able to configure it again to your desired network settings. Further it is necessary likewise to manually configure the connected PC's networking configuration to match the router. Manually configure your PC's IP Address to 192.168.0.228, Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0, Gateway - 192.168.0.227. You can now try configuring the router through its web interface (192.168.0.227). This is better explained in the user's manual available at the Netgear site ( Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Absolutely, the Gateway Router is OS independent. All you need is a computer with a properly configured Ethernet LAN adapter and a web browser to configure the Gateway Router. Any platform that supports Ethernet & TCP/IP is compatible with the router. You may need to provide additional hardware & software (i.e. Ethernet cards and/or software drivers) to ensure that all clients operate with the router.
