Do you still have/pay for DSL service on the phoneline?

If there is DSL service on the line and if the 2Wire is configured properly I dont see why it wouldn't work. I guess you will either have to try it, or call your DSL provider to ask them if it will work.

network device list on 2Wire DSL Gateway Model 2701HG-B
Hi, I'm using a 2Wire 2701HG-B Gateway. I'd like to edit the list of computers on my home network. I know how to log onto the gateway and access the list, and in advanced settings uncheck the box to display inactive computers. I'm assuming there's also a way to remove computers rather than just hide them. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.......

Thanks.......[/quote] If you mean the list of computers and wireless devices on the system summary page under Home Network, you can't really edit that list per se.  Those devices are there because your router has recently assigned a local IP address to them.  A particular device will remain in that list until the lease for that device's assigned IP address expires.  I believe 2Wire's DHCP leases are defaulted at 24 hours. So for your purposes, the unwanted device should disappear from the list automatically provided it is disconnected from the network when its assigned IP address is 1-day old. You can change future lease time intervals by clicking the Home Network icon and clicking Advanced Settings link.  It should be labeled something like "DHCP Lease Time".  Caution... don't mess with any other DHCP settings on that page.

Thanks. In Advanced Settings, DHCP lease time is 24 hours. It's been months since a couple of my network computers were booted up, but they're in the list. For now I'm just choosing not to display inactive computers....

You need a filter attached to the line between the wall and the modem.

[quote=hubby]Try: admin[/quote] With all the made-up names people give their kids these days, why haven't we seen more boys named "Admin"?Anyway... to the guy that wanted to open ports - once in the 2Wire interface, hit Firewall>Advanced Settings. If you have more than one client (computer) in your network, choose the affected one from the drop-down. Below that is a list of preconfigured applications (games, roles) that you can instantly assign to the selected computer that will usually open the correct ports. If your game isn't in that list and you know the port settings and protocols, click the small link that says "user-defined port settings/applications" or something like that.

I have an older model 2wire router(at least 3 years old) with AT&T dsl service. I don't think we are getting the speed that we are paying for due to the router. The 2wire-2700hg-b-router is the current router they have for their clients. Do you think getting the new router will increase my download speed significantly?

What speed are you paying for?
What speed are you actually getting? - how are you determining the speed you are getting?

usually an older (3-4) router should be able to handle anything up to ~10MB/sec'ish.. so if you are paying for 20mb or higher service, and you arent getting that speed, an new router might help.. Since you are on DSL, i'm going to guess you arent paying for any more than a few MB/sec..

If you're paying for 5mb service and you're getting 3mb speeds, then I doubt a new modem would make a difference.. BUT before spending any $$ I would call AT&T and have them verify that everything on their end is correct.. all that said, a new router probably does not cost very much, and assuming AT&T will allow it, it probably wont hurt anything..

So - the answer is "it depends" ...
