I can not rate the reliability higher now, but if it keeps on going for a year I’d definitely give it a 5 star reliability rating. Since you cannot use the DSL port, there is no way to get it to route. Sign 2wite using Email and Password.
wireless networking – How do I use a 2Wire HG-B as a router only? – Super User
Anything connecting to the 2Wire will get an IP address from your PC and connect via it to the internet. This modem is popular because it good at overcoming signal problems with DSL.
In the few weeks that I’ve had this installed there have been no problems with it whatsoever. Its user-friendly setup interface allows for establishing your home network painlessly, making this router a friendly option for those looking to have their own network.
You are doing yourself a great disservice by trying to use it as a router, as it likely has many limitations imposed by the ISP, and you might have NAT issues, among other things. If you plan on using this with a fixed IP address it will help if you know something about setting up a DSL modem.
I have updated 2wide answer, if the new approach works, then I’ll delete the original text. I don’t think 2wier will work, the surfboard is “stupid”, so it doesn’t behave like a proper router. This item doesn’t belong on this page. To extend with a router you would need a router with an ethernet WAN port, which the 2Wire is not.
You can do this via trial and error easy enough. Connected to router via wifi.
Ratings and Reviews Write a review. I’m misspoke, connected to cable modem via ethernet cable. Final piece was to run the network setup wizard and choose the option for “this computer connects directly to the internet and other computers connect through it. Kevin 59 3 4 That was handy for a VOIP adapter. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.
It is not an outstanding router. Overall, for a DSL modem with built in wireless that works well at this price – you simply can’t get a better deal.

The modem works well and the interface is easy to navigate. Yes, I occasionally have to restart the modem, usually because of router problems, but I can usually maintain good service for a week or better. The HG-B feature set is minimal, easy to set up web interface, good case-runs cool, with good network performance and wireless range.
