Using 2wire 2701HGV-W as a wireless point

Hi all
I am already using my 2wire 2701HGV-W as a switch, providing internet access from my primary computer to all my other computers. I have set my IP addresses manually in the 192.168.0.x range. The setup is below

Modem (10.0.0.1)
|
|
(10.0.0.2)
Main Computer
(192.168.0.1)
|
2wire 2701HGV-W (192.168.0.200)
| | |
| | |
Comp 2 Comp 3 Comp 4
(192.168.0.2) (192.168.0.3) (192.168.0.4)

This whole setup is wired, and is in this format because Comp 2-4 are in the bedrooms whereas Comp 1 is in the main living area on the other side of the house.
This setup has given me no problem up to this point.

What I want to do now though is enable my wireless connection on the 2wire 2701HGV-W and allow it to give mobile devices internet access. I can setup the wireless and connect to it, but I have LOCAL ONLY access.

What will I need to do to enable internet access to my wireless devices?

Thanks in advance

If you are using the 2wire switch ports you also have access to it's access point

What is the make and model number of the modem

The modems ethernet port should be connected to a 2wire lan port
The 2wire dhcp server must be disabled

Can you run the ipconfig /all command on one of the wired computers and from a wireless device andd post the info

Why are the computers using the 192.168.0.0 subnet and the modem uses the 10.0.0.0 subnet

Sorry, I was trying to illustrate the setup of the system, but it didnt show up very well on the first post.

The computers are using a different subnet to the modem due to the setup.

The modem is where it is due to the location of our phone line and needs to stay roughly where it is. It is plugged into the main computer (Which has two network cards) and uses the 10.0.0.0 subnet.

The main computer then allows sharing of the internet conection to my private network of subnet 192.168.0.0 via an ethernet cable connected to one of the 4 ports of the 2wire router. The 2wire router is situated in one of the bedrooms central to all of the bedrooms so that the amount of wiring is reduced.

As requested. below is the ipconfig/all report. Firstly WIRED

You need to disable the 2wire dhcp server.......
Manually set the tcp/ip info on the wireless computers
192.168.0.200 is the ip of the 2wire

Notice that dhcp is enabled
And the default gateway, dhcp and dns ip's are the ip of the 2wire

Thanks, that worked.

I guess I will just have to manually setup any devices that want to connect to our wireless when the time comes.

I was hoping for some sort of automatic solution, but its fine.
It works!

If the main computer that allows sharing of the internet connection has a dhcp server it can be used

It seems like you are using ics on the main computer is this true?
How does the main computer connect to the 2wire?

Yes, the main computer uses ics.
I have 2 network cards on it. One connected directly to the modem (which is shared). And the other to the rest of the network via the 2wire.

Your modem should be able share it's internet connection by itself without using Windows Internet Connection Sharing

Ok, thanks
I will look into this further. May not have much time until next weekend.

Does your isp require you to use pppoe, pppoa or dhcp to make the internet connection

Disabling the 2wire dhcp server should allow the ics dhcp server to work but you may need to change the ip's used by the computers that were manually setup
