2wire router Windows 7 will not enable mac filtering

Q: 2wire router Windows 7 will not enable mac filtering

I current have Windows 7 and my wireless router is provided with bellsouth/att. However, my Westel router was replaced with 2WIRE. it does not accurately show my mac addresses. my Ethernet and wireless connections are all listed as one device and once I enable mace filtering, I am booted off the internet and unable to log on. Also, I received an email that i tried to delete but it opened anyway and my browser shut down immediately, could this have been sent to gain access through my computer through a surveillance program like spectorsoft pro.

Malwarbytes continues to scan my computer but i keep getting Broken-OpenCommand and I got HijackDisplayProperties. what is this. I have a bran new dell computer and Mcafee Internet Security Suites. Please advise as to what I should do. Thanks, I am new to all of this, do I need to have the someone come in a scan, fix, repair. Or should I reset to factory delivery.

Preferred Solution: 2wire router Windows 7 will not enable mac filtering

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: 2wire router Windows 7 will not enable mac filtering

Well, mac filtering is a painful way of achieving a useless affect. I tried to use it to allow only the computers I know onto the internet (the purpose), but every time, it just booted them all off the network. From what I've read, it's pretty useless. Doing things like mac filtering, not broadcasting SSID, etc...only serve to make it more difficult for you to connect to the internet. The signal is transmitted in many more ways than that. Somebody with the right tools can still find your network even if you do things like that (mac filter, hide SSID, etc.) The best way to stay secure is to use WPA2 encryption with a long password (random, non-dictionary based ASCII characters, like !*?R#PZPwv^)Sounds like that email may have infected your PC somehow. You can either hack in out in the "Am I Infected? What do I do?" sub-forum (NOT in this topic!!), or you can do the simple thing and just reset to factory settings (my recommendation).But yeah, forget about the mac filtering. Just use a strong WPA2 password, and reset to factory settings to get rid of any malware you might have picked up. If you had had it longer, I would say to try and fight it. But with one fresh from the factory, you might as well just reset it to factory settings. Good luck!

So there are about 1000 computers on our Domain, Vista 700, Windows 7 300. After restart, as required by updates the computers can access resources on the network, the computer name can be resolved by DNS, but they are not pingable, cannot RDP, DameWare, or remote manage. We have found that the update has for some reason started the Base Filtering Engine Service. If we put hands on the computer we can disable Base Filtering Engine and all is well.

The number of computers effected is growing at an alarming rate, probably 100+ a day.Tomorrow is day 3.

The problem is that some of the computers are 400 miles away, we need to fix this remotely if possible.

Hello. I am experiencing a problem with my AT&T 2Wire gateway connecting to my laptop. The wired connection works fine on my XP desktop and the wireless works fine with our family's cell phone, tablets, game systems, media streamer, and a Windows 8 laptop (or at least I haven't noticed it with the Windows 8 laptop). But it seems whenever I am using the Windows 7 laptop, the wireless connection will go in & out.

There is a pattern of blinking lights whenever the connection drops. The "ethernet" and the "wireless" light always are on; the "DSL" light turns red and blinks, the "Internet" light also goes out. After maintaining that pattern for 20-30 seconds, the DSL light will go back to a solid green and the Internet light will start blinking. After maintaining that for maybe another 20-30 seconds, the Internet light will go back to solid green.

While the connection is dropped, I get a variety of pages that show that my connection is not working properly. I have attached screenshots of what comes up on the browser if I click on something while the connection is dropped. Once the connection is restored, if I re-visit the page I was trying to access while the connection is dropped, a page will display (paraphrasing here) "Resolution was successful. Please restart your browser...."

Thanks in advance for any help. This can be very frustrating at times.

I don't know if this is possible, but this is what I want to do:
Have the dsl modem router and linksys voip connected together.
I want the voip router to assign dhcp and the dsl modem router to
be used to get internet access but not assign dhcp (I think)

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.
No matter what I do, disable dhcp on linksys router, set linksys router on the dsl modem router to DMZ, set linksys router to bridge mode.....
nothing seems to work.

All I want to do is configure the linksys router so that when I go to my internet explorer on my laptop and type in "99.xxx.xxx.xx:1024 to connect to the cam's. But when I go to linksys router config. pages to see the status, the internet ip is 192.168.1.64 which is a LAN address assi... Read more

How do you connect two routers together to increase signal through the whole house? I am trying to use the n300 as my main router (its hooked to cable modem) and use the 2wire as an access point. The two are connected by a known good ethernet cable.

Thanks,

A:Connecting netgear n300 router to 2wire 2701 router

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

I have a 2wire 2701hg-b router and recently it's been resetting itself about every 10-20 minutes. Everything will be working normally and then I'll hear a click from the router and it will go from all green to just one green back to all green. After the lights come back on the internet resumes working.

I had to replace the original power supply because it wasn't getting any power at all. The power supply I have been using for the last 6 months or so has either 4.5v or 6v. Since I bought it I've been using it at 4.5v. The thing is, the 2wire 2701hg-b is supposed to use a 5.1v 2a power adapter.

My question was, is it safe for me to use the 6v setting on the power supply from now on? I've switched it to 6v for the past hour and the router hasn't reset itself once. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks in advance

I was wondering if any one knows a good wireless extender for a 2wire gateway router?
 

A:2wire router extener

Truthfully, I have little use for range extenders, they are frequently hard to configure and problematic in operation. They'll also reduce the total wireless bandwidth available, something that is normally highly undesirable.

I'd be looking at running a wire to a remote location and using a WAP, and/or using hi-gain antennas and the like.
Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

[HAO14SD] Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit

For 802.11n applications, this ZyXEL ANT1106 6db omni-directional antenna can be used.

For really long range outdoor applications, this 24dB parabolic WiFi Antenna may be a good choice.

If you have a wireless adapter that doesn't have provisions for an external antenna, one adapter that I've had good luck with is a Rosewill RNX-G1 USB Wireless Adapter. It's feature is that is has a removable antenna and will accommodate replacement antennas.

A:How to get a 2Wire to work as wireless router

I will be assuming that you have not changed any default settings for your 2Wire gateway. To connect wirelessly through your 2Wire, you will just need your WEP password. It can be found at the bottom of your gateway itself. It should have 10 digits. To go to your gateway homepage if you want to change some settings, just open any browser and type in "home" and press enter.

Whenever I check my port on any website that allows it it says it's closed.

Is there a way to reset everything so there is absolutely no computers on my firewall settings? I think the problem is that someone my computer got duplicated and the one that needs to have the definition added is getting an unknown error...

A:2wire wireless router problems

Many of the ISP supplied modem/router models are customized for the specific ISP. If you got the 2WIRE from AT&T, chances are good that it won't work for Time Warner.

You mention "cable DSL", what is that. I thought Time Warner offered standard cable service. If that's what you have, the DSL modem is totally incompatible with that service. Does your "cable DSL" connect with the coax cable that also feeds the TV's? If so, you need a DOCSIS modem, not a DSL modem.

First time post here,

So, I recently switched from ATT, to Charter Cable, but don't have a router.

So far, I have enabled the Sharing tab on the Ethernet connection connected to the cable Modem, and have it aimed at the WiFi network created by the 2Wire.

I am able to access all the files of Desktop A, on Desktop B via regular media and public folder sharing, what extra steps are needed to send ICS from the host, and receive ICS at client end? If the 2Wire is the problem which changes do I need to make, via DHCP, etc.

Hi guys,

I have AT&T Uverse which came with a 2Wire unit (all in one - modem, router/wireless router)

It supports both WEP and WPA, so for security I put it on WPA.

Now here is my dilemma... I have a wireless device that only works on WEP. I don't want to downgrade my entire network to insecure WEP just so I can use this one device.

So what I'm trying to do is get a 2nd wireless router that I just bought working on the network (Linksys WRT160n) , both wired and wireless (it's in my living room so I'd like it to provide Internet to the PC there as well as wireless WEP)

I've had some success but not everything is working yet.
Here's what I've done so far...

The 2Wire device operates on 192.168.1.x. Within its config under Broadband -> Link Configuration , there is a section "Supplementary Network", that I enabled, and set the following:

Router Address 192.168.2.1
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Auto Firewall Open [x]
Next, on my new wireless router in my living (Linksys WRT160n) which is connected via Ethernet via a hub to the 2Wire, I configured it to have an IP: 192.168.2.1

This is connected via Ethernet to a PC I have in my living room as well.
I have some limited success:

- the PC in the living room connected via Ethernet to the new Linksys router has Internet and can browse sites, etc

- this PC connected to the Linksys is also able to ping a machine in my 192.168.1.x network

I just changed my D-link router for a 2wire router.
We have 3 PC connected to the router (all with wire), and they all work fine. However, I cannot share the printer (Samsung CLX-3160) anymore. It was working fine with the D-link router, but when we switched to 2wire, it stopped. We are using a hardwire connection (not wireless). The error message (from each computer) is: "Network Printer status is not available". The light on the 2wire router for the wire going to the printer is OK (green) so, the cable is not an issue. It must be just an address issue, but I cannot fix it.

Thanks

OK, here's the situation. I have a Dell E1505 laptop with Windows Vista that I use as my main computer. I am connected to the internet with a 2wire2701HG-T router/modem. I just bought a Acer Aspire One D250 with Windows 7 Starter and connected it wirelessly to the network. Now, however, when the Dell is connected to the modem by ethernet, my preferred connection for security, speed, and battery issues, the internet connection on the Acer slows down to nothing and soon disconnects. After a bit, it reconnects, but is still very slow, only to disconnect again. However, when I connect the Dell by wireless, everything works normally. Is this a modem problem, or is it an issue with one of the computers? I must admit, my networking skills don't go beyond being able to set up a network name and password.

I own an AT&T 3801 HGV 2wire modem. I pay for AT&T's fastest speed of 24mbps, yet for some odd reason, it only pulls about 12 via wifi. I decided to buy a Netgear N600 router to help me out. However, the router's settings are saying, "To avoid conflict with your ISP, your router's IP address has been updated. You must now update the IP addresses in your router's configuration settings for each relevant service, such as port forwarding and IP address reservation."

Being a pretty big novice at networking that I am, I called Netgear on the problem. They said they wouldn't help me unless I payed them $69.99 for 6 months of their expert support. So, then I called AT&T and was told they won't help me unless I payed $15.00 a month for a year, and $10.00 a month for every month after if I cancelled.

Like I said, I'm pretty green when it comes to networking, but I really need the help! I plug everything I have that uses ethernet into the 2wire modem/router, but I use the Netgear only for wireless. I want to get what I'm paying for. Thanks!

I am trying to set up a wireless MAC lap top to AT&T 2701HG-B, when I went through the AT&T tech support they were unable to get the lap top to sync with the modem. They said I was going to need to bring the lap top to an Apple store and have them change some settings,,,,,I sure there's any easier fix than that. Anyone have any ideas of what could be happening? Thanks!!!!

Hi everyone, I have a 2wire 2701HGV-W Gateway but have been having problems with my connection lately.
I was wondering if I can use the standard modem that came from Telstra, and plug it into the 2701, as my computer is in a different room to the phone line so I need something to send out the wireless signal.
Are there any changes I should make on the 2wire to make sure that they don't conflict?
Cheers,
Luke.

I have DSL service with SBC Yahoo. SBC provided me with a 2Wire 1800HG modem. I recently purchased a NetGear WGR614 Wireless router. I used the NetGear installation CD to install the NetGear router. The installation process doesn't complete successfully, stalls at about 75%. I've seen chatter on the internet saying that there is a conflict between the NetGear and 2Wire but haven't seen many work-arounds suggested.

Please help!

Thanks

So I recently got this Linksys wireless-g router WRT54GS2. And my other PC has an external 2Wire 802.11g USB Wireless Lan card. Well the way the software that came with the router works was it has me basically allow each device that connects to it. Well I can get the 2wire card to get an actually really good connection to the routers network, but when I go to allow it on the router it does not show up as a device that's connected to the router.

I do know a little of what I'm doing. I named the network something odd like smurfs and so I know the card is in fact connecting to it. But for some reason I cannot get the router to see the 2wire card. Is it possible these aren't compatible with eachother?

Any help or tips would be great. I didn't think it would give me this much trouble.
 

A:2Wire Lan Card + Linksys Wireless Router compatible?

They certainly should be compatible.

Have you removed all the stored wireless network profiles and searched for the network? Have you tried removing all encryption from the router to see if it connects that way?

Previously I had DSL modem connected to WRT54GR, and desktop hard wired to it. Also have a Dell laptop with wireless card connecting to router wirelessly. Desktop has no wireless card. (Computer room is on 2nd floor)

ISP provider has upgraded the modem to 2wire wireless router/modem. We did tests within the house and I have 6 Mb availability where line enters the house (basement), but only 4Mb
because of older wiring in the house.

It was suggested that for max speed I could put the 2wire in basement, and connect to it wirelessly.Not a problem for the Dell.

My question: Is there a way to have the WRT54GR on 2nd floor and connect my Desktop to it hardwired, and communicate with the 2 wire wireless modem/router? Can this set up be used instead of putting a wireless card in my desktop?
I have the WRT54GR (which has been relegated to storage because of the 2 wire
upgrade).

Thanks.

A client of mine has a very large house and wants to extend the range of his wireless signal. He is able to get signal everywhere except the kitchen.

Which range extender or access point is the best one to pair up with 2Wire's modem/wireless router?

If there is not a reliable one, then I could just use Linksys products.

I could hook up a WRT54G to the 2wire and have that be a hard connection, and then get a WAP54G to act as a repeater. Or, should I get two WAP54G's and not get the WRT54G and set it up the same way I just described? And would I set up the 2Wire as a bridge? Is that possible? Links as to how?

Thanks.

I use Windows XP Service Pack 3 and a 2wire router to connect to the internet.Sometimes when I am browsing the net and try to load a page I receive a message from the router saying I have a large number of sessions going and it is probably caused by a blaster virus.Anything I already have going (online games,anything that doesn`t make me open another page) will work fine but if I try to open a new browser tab It brings up the same error message.Power cycling sometimes helps and sometimes does not and I cannot figure out what is causing this.I have scanned my computer with fully updated AVG,Avira,Kaspersky,Spybot,and Ad-Aware (please note that I only have Ad-Aware and Avira installed now,the others were online scanners or have been uninstalled long ago) and Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and all have came up clean.I have included a screenshot of the error.Also this problem persists on both IE7 and Opera;both browsers receive the error.

IM Haveing A Problem Connecting my router. its first time i use it. every time i try connceting to the internet with it, it says that the router is not able to connect to the internet. my internet conncetion is ppp0e, i already put the password on the program of the router.

do i have to configure something on the modem (2 wire homeportal 1800hw)?

if anybody knows a solution i will apprecciate it.
 

A:router linksys wrt54gs and 2wire homeportal 1800hw

Well, you have two routers, and if you're connecting the Linksys to the 1800HW, you don't configure a secondary router to PPPoE. You might want to try this configuration.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

I took my old Compaq computer to my former computer class and we learned the hard drive was still good but were not able to do a system restore from the back up disk as it just hung at a certain point so we formated the hard drive and reinstalled the xp operating system and also installed Acronis backup. We then did all the updates and installed Internet Explorer 8. All worked well until I tired to install the 2Wire software. It kept indicating that installation was not sucessful and I needed to have Internet Explorer 5 or later. Well, duh! So after many attempts without success I attempted to uninstall IE 8 but in the process it didn't remove all or something. I then tired to install a copy of IE 5 from a disk but it kept failing because the curent IE needed to be removed first. How do I remove IE 8 completely so I can install an earlier, less buggy version? This is the computer that crashed back in May of 09.

Thanks,

I currently have the belkin installed as on belkin instructions but believe the 2wire is still doing routing and I am having networking issues (delays, disconnects, etc). Can anyone help and suggest best way to configure these two devices?

Recently, I had AT&T U-Verse installed for both TV and internet. It's been running fine and I've really had no problems, except two.

I got a laptop a few weeks ago and naturally tried to connect wirelessly to my router/modem (the 3800HGV-B from 2WIRE), but to my dismay the provided default network key did not work. This was not a big deal, really, because I found a work-around by plugging a cheap N router in as an access point, and that worked fine. But today, I needed to forward some ports on the router to host a game server. This was the first time I had ever tried this. I went to the router's configuration page, change some settings, typed in the System Password for the router, and my login failed.

The default Network Key and System Password are printed on the unit, and since I hadn't changed them, those are the ones I used.

Any suggestions?
 

A:2WIRE 3800HGV-B Router System Password Problem

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button for 15 seconds with power on. The default values should work then.

Just recently acquired a new RV220W Cisco router, and I found the content filtering on it actually works, so I added the word "proxy" to the filtering list to keep my son off of those "proxy" sites that allow him to surf the web anonymously.

The only issue is that with this keyword blocked, I can't use my phone to connect to my cable boxes at home through the Optimum app. As soon as I disable the content filtering, I can access the cable box again.

Does anyone know how I can block "proxy" AND use my app on my phone, or will this be a constant "you can only use one at a time" feature?

I do have the ability to add a specific URL into an "exception" list, but how do I find out what that URL is that I need to add?

You need a better content filtering solution. SonicWall has a much better content filtering feature. Or you can look into WebSense.
