Connect the First Computer to the Gateway

Congratulations on the purchase of your 2Wire gateway. To install your gateway and configure your network, follow these steps.

Note: Features for different models may vary. Product details will be specified for each particular model.

Choose a Computer and Connection Type

There are many ways to set up your network, but typically the first computer is located in the same room as the gateway and your DSL connection. Ethernet is the preferred connection method for your first computer, although instructions for connecting via wireless and USB are also provided.

The first computer you connect to the network is used to configure the 2Wire gateway for proper operation. Choose one of the following methods to connect your first computer to the gateway. Save and close all open programs before you begin connecting your gateway.

Install the DSL Filter

Note: New DSL customers only. Existing DSL customers with filters already installed should proceed to Ethernet Connection on page 4, Wireless Connection on page 5, or USB Connection on page 7.

Regular telephone and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) signals are carried over the same line. Converting your regular telephone line to DSL can cause high-pitched tones and static when using the phone.

Installing a filter on every telephone or telephone device sharing the same telephone number as your DSL1 separates these signals and eliminates the noise.

1. Do not install DSL filters if your telephone line is only carrying a DSL signal.

2

Connect the First Computer to the Gateway

To install the DSL filter:

1.Locate the phone jack where you want to connect your 2Wire gateway.

2.Insert the DSL filter into the jack.

3.If you have a phone, answering machine, fax machine, satellite TV equipment, or other phone device in this jack location, plug it into the filter port labeled PHONE.

4.Install a DSL filter on all other phone devices in your house (such as dial-up modems, fax machines, caller ID devices, and set top boxes). Plug each of these devices into the filter port labeled PHONE.

For Wall-Mounted Phones

If you have a wall-mounted telephone, install a wall-mount DSL filter following these steps.

1.Lift the telephone from the wall pegs and disconnect the phone cord from the wall jack.

2.Connect the telephone cord from the back of the DSL filter into the wall jack. Align the keyhole slots on the filter with the wall plate pegs and press down gently to secure.

3.Connect the telephone cord to the phone jack located on the front of the mounted filter.

4. Attach the telephone to the mounting pegs on the DSL filter and your installation is complete.

Note: The extra phone jack located at the bottom of the filter (labeled LINE) is provided should you wish to connect your gateway at this phone connection.

Connect the First Computer to the Gateway

Ethernet Connection

Figure 1. Gateway Connected Via Ethernet

1.Connect the provided power adapter from the gateway’s POWER port to an electrical outlet. The POWER light on the front of the gateway should be green.

2.Connect the provided gray phone cable from the gateway’s PHONE LINE port to the DSL filter jack labeled

DSL/HPNA.

3.Connect the yellow Ethernet cable provided with the gateway from any available LOCAL ETHERNET port on the gateway to your computer’s Ethernet port.

Check Your Connections

With your computer completely started, verify the POWER and ETHERNET indicator lights on the front of the 2Wire gateway are green. If they are not, see “Understanding the Indicator Lights” on page 18. The

INTERNET indicator light will not turn green until the gateway software has been installed and an Internet connection has been established.

Connect the First Computer to the Gateway

Wireless Connection

Requires wireless-enabled notebook or a computer with an 802.11b/g wireless network adapter installed. Wireless adapters can be purchased from your service provider.

Figure 2. Gateway Connected Via Wireless

1.Connect the provided AC power adapter from the 2Wire gateway’s POWER port to an electrical outlet. The POWER light on the front of the gateway should be green.

2.Connect the provided gray telephone cable from the gateway’s PHONE LINE port to a telephone jack with DSL service.

3.Install your wireless adapter according to the manufacturer’s instructions (see note below).

Note: If you use a 2Wire wireless adapter (PC card or USB adapter) for wireless networking, the 2Wire CD automatically configures it to communicate with the gateway during setup. If you are NOT using a 2Wire wireless adapter, you must manually configure your adapter to communicate with the gateway using the information on page 6.

Non-2Wire Wireless Adapter Configuration

Locating the Serial Number and Wireless

Encryption Key

The serial number of your 2Wire gateway is used as the network name (SSID). Beneath the serial number is a ten-digit number which is used as the encryption key. These are located on the bottom of your gateway (shown in horizontal orientation). You will need this information to configure your wireless adapter.

Configuring the Adapter

1.Install and configure your wireless adapter according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

2.Use the network adapter configuration software or Windows network connection wizard to set the network name (SSID) and encryption key (WEP).

a.The network name is the word “2WIRE” (in all capital letters), followed by the last three digits of the gateway serial number (for example, 2WIRE110).

b.The encryption key is a 64-bit hex value, located beneath the bar code on the bottom of the 2Wire gateway. In the example, it is 4119627022.

c.For Mac OS X users, you may need to enter the “$” character at the beginning of the encryption key (for example, $4119627022).
