    Installation 2wire router

    If a different DSL modem syncs to your DSL line and the 2Wire does not, there's only a couple different things that can be going on: - Your line is using a spec that the 2Wire does not support (most likely-- the 1800HG should support the G.DMT, G.lite, etc. ADSL standards, but may need a...

    Nework a Imac with Dell notebook

    Well, I remember trying to help a friend with this to find that HP did not have a driver for his model to allow Windows Printer Sharing, but that was in OSX, which has the Linux/Unix driver community to draw from. Unless you can find information at HP's site on how to "share" the printer via...

    power went out and router is having problems..

    An orange Broadband Link on a 2Wire gateway indicates that the unit has DSL sync, but is not currently authenticated to the ISP -- could be mismatch between saved username/password and the ISP database or a problem/outage with the DSL network (ATM circuit, etc.). To get back online or find out...

    Solved: Avira AVG found HEUR/malware in my portal mon.

    I'd agree that this is probably due to a definitions update -- not sure why Spy Sweeper would catch it unless it also got an update. While it's possible that any file could get infected, I don't know if that's likely in this case. Unfortunately, I'm not a HJT guru, just a long-time 2Wire user...

    Solved: Avira AVG found HEUR/malware in my portal mon.

    2PortalMon basically provides the little #2 icon in your tray that tells you that you are connected to your 2Wire HomePortal, and it is online. It is completely optional -- all the functionality it offers is available by simply going to http://gateway.2wire.net or http://172.16.0.1 (or whatever...

    wireless laptop and internet connection sharing

    Keep in mind that running the 360 through an ICS shared network will possibly result in greater NAT issues. A better resolution (although more expensive) would be to get one of the wireless to ethernet gaming adapters, but I don't have any money around this time of year, either. :) Anywho, the...

    Solved: Unable to find the WEP key on my home modem (which could nullify any extra cost).

    2Wire Tip for anyone searching for answers in the future: By default, 2Wire HomePortals have a network name of 2WIRExxx (xxx=the last 3 numbers of the serial number) and use the number in brackets [] below the serial number as the WEP key. To change this information (64/128-bit WEP, WPA, etc)...

    DSL speeds

    TerryNet, Most 2Wire HomePortals are combo units. The 1070's only sport a single ethernet port, but are still a router with NAT and SPI. mxion, If you go to http://gateway.2wire.net or http://homeportal you can see what your 2Wire is syncing at. Then, as TerryNet said, you should have ~80% of...

    Back again

    Since the 2Wire HomePortal has a great Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall, it's catching and dropping all these hits. There's a lot of naughty kids and zombie machines out there looking for someone to hack/infect, so you will always get these type of "attempted attacks." The nice thing...

    Network adapter

    jentx, I'm not sure when you got your ethernet card thru SBC/AT&T -- it would most likely be a Dlink DFE-528TX, Dlink DFE-530TX+, or Realtek 8139 depending on when/with what. The driver you referred to is NOT for ethernet -- it's for a direct USB connection to the HomePortal (read to the...

    Wireless and laptops

    rlowe38742, Check down by the clock for an icon for the wireless connection. If it's the WinXP one, you can right click on it and choose View Available Networks. You want the network 2WIRExxx where xxx is the last 3 numbers of your 2Wire's serial number. You'll also need to supply the...

    Long distance Wireless help

    Depending on the model, firmware, and ISP of the 2Wire in question, it is possible that the wireless power can be "turned up." If the model number ends in HW or HG, it has 2Wire's "Hyper G" wireless hardware with triple antennas inside the case and variable power settings. Newer firmwares have...

    1800HG > WRT54G > BEFSX41. Routing static IPs, etc.

    In the case of a "router sitting on the lan assigned staticly" you just have to configure it to have similar settings to what a workstation would pull. Since you already configured it with DHCP and it pulled down the public .237 IP address, if you wanted to configure it statically, you would...

    Default IP on a 2wire Router

    Defaults may vary by ISP, but the IP address settings based on firmware version are: 3.5.x and prior (I think Bellsouth models may have used 192.168.x.x version of this): - 172.16.0.1 IP Address - 255.255.0.0 Subnet Mask - 172.16.1.33-254 DHCP Range 3.7.x and newer: - 192.168.1.254 IP...

    1800HG > WRT54G > BEFSX41. Routing static IPs, etc.

    pmcintire, Setting up a device with a public static IP on a 2Wire HomePortal can certainly be done, although it may be a little different configuration than you are used to. The biggest difference is that the HomePortal doesn't just pass through the ports to a computer with a private address...
