I know the SBC 2WIRE is a modem AND a router. Our old config used the 2wire for DSL connection, and we also had a WRT54G v5 wireless router to get the connection to our second computer using Compact wireless G USB Adapter.
Last week for some reason the connection to the second computer no longer worked Who knows why....
I have spent a ton!!!! of hours and way over my head...even got to the point that we couldn't connect to the internet using the 2wire on the main computer. ((( Give me a LITTLE knowledge and I'm dangerous. And I have had hours of time spent on the phone with SBC and HP.. both blaming each other.
We now have the 2wire connection working to the main computer. I had to disconnect the Linksys router completely and would like to just use the 2wire with my Linksys wireless G adapter. Is this possible and recommended?
Can someone direct me to instructions how to reconfig and the steps I need to take to get my second computer connected and can I use the linksys wireless G adapter with the 2WIRE? All my devices are working. I'm using XP pro on main HP computer, and xp on second computer which is Sony VIO.
I ACTUALLY GOT IT TO WORK!!!! Once I realized that I needed to allow the windows wizard to create the LAN wireless connection on BOTH computers... and I changed the configuring from the Linksys monitor to allow Windows to config the adapter..(that was a stopping point before)....I was then able to change a couple setting in the internet OPTIONS and VALLLAAAAAAA !!! PERFECT AND FAST connection!
I think this was my MOTHER'S DAY GIFT because of two week's of GRIEF. Now today I need to figure out adding my new 2.0 high speed USP host ports onto the mother board--but my son is coming over and he's been inside computer boxes before... but ... I'm starting to scare myself!!! And you can bet I SCREAMED and did the HAPPY NETWORK DANCE when I got the connection the first time.
BTW I did read several threads here which helped me understand more and get this done!
I have 4 desktops, and all running off of an SBC router, 1 is main to router, 3 run on SBC 2 Wire Wireless adaptors. 4th computer is now a new Vista OS and 2 Wire Wireless Adaptor software will not load (SBC cannot explain). Had to hook back up to Hepna Adaptor BUT now system is disconnecting at will. Will a Lynksys Wireless Adaptor with VISTA compatability fix this problem, and will it work with the current SBC 2 Wire Router?
