Search Amazon.com for AT&T 2701HG-B 2Wire Wireless Gateway DSL Router Modem
Product Review
These routers come with really poor power adapters that are 1) energy inefficient, and 2) overheat. Notice the reviews for failures; most of them come from power failures. Mine was the same. AT&T oversold it to me when I added a DSL line upon moving to my apartment. The router fried about 1 month after the warranty expiration. The power supply itself is 5.1V ... now, how often do you see 5.1V adaptors out there? As if they couldn't engineer the thing to interchange with a $2.00 5V adaptor instead of shilling for $10 to AT&T for a replacement. More to the point, the wireless network portion is an 802.11g router - meaning it's an older slower technology. If you're going to buy a wireless router nowadays, you should get a faster 802.11n router, which should be back-compatable with 802.11g hardware. Why are they shipping 802.11g routers nowadays when 802.11n has been official since September, 2009, and widely available since summer, 2007? Not to mention, for the money you spend on this router, you could purchase an identical one with 1) print-server capabilites (meaning you could attach a printer to the router allowing anyone on your wireless network to attach to the router) and/or 2) a port for Network Attached Storage (a backup hard drive or media disk you can avoid attaching and de-attaching to your computer). It also doesn't have the, ahem, ease of use that dodge most makers of routers. Compare Apple's AirPort to make the router function as a bridge (basically a way to extend a wireless router by using it to relay or boost the signal from another router). On an Apple router, you click a box saying "enable bridge mode," on this, you enter VPI 0, VCI 35, disable PCI search, change the connection type, and disable routing...and remember to press save. The security settings are really funky. I don't envy DSL providers, as it is a tricky technology, but if you ever want to use a service to connect to your computer from the outside world...forget about it. No VPN, no Slingbox, no Back-to-my-mac, no run your own home server, no dynDNS, no zeroconfig...ok, it CAN be done...but the success reports on google are about as common as good reviews of this router/modem/gateway. Also, if you have a mac, there are frequent reports of hardware compatibility with this router - really, only due to the way-out-there-bizzare default settings. see the discussion at ([...]) By the way, when this fried, I just wanted to get a DSL modem and use my own wireless router (base station). AT&T's next branded DSL modem down cost $70.00 (basically without the wireless network). Now, it had the same specs as another one in the store for $50 that didn't have the special AT&T logo. I got the non-logo one, plugged it in, and it worked perfect. When I did so I discovered my DSL connection was much, much faster. Also, I didn't have any problems with losing my connection every evening at about 11:45 for about 40 minutes without fail. I had this problem when connected to this 2wire router both wirelessly and wired. I am not a conspiracy theorist by nature, but I did study networking and I can't help but think AT&T makes use of this branded router to shape and limit network traffic.

Step 1- You need to find your modem IMEI number which is usually printed on modem or check the modem manual for your unique IMEI number for example mine IMEI number is
IMEI: :356165035539027

Step 2- Go to the link http://www.bb5.at/huawei.php?imei=**************
Replace ************** with your unique IMEI number so that the link should be like my example below -
http://www.bb5.at/huawei.php?imei=356165035539027

Open your customized link in your web browser and you will get something like this

HWCALC V2.0

Step 3- Download Huawei Modem Unlocker ( from here).Download contains a rar file you will need a compression tool like winrar to open and view files (download winrar free ).Run file name HUAWEI MODEM Code Writer.exe

Step 4- Huawei Modem Unlocker  will open (see image below)


Click on Detect button and then select your modem name from the list.after selection from the list click on Accept button.

Step 5- Finally,Click on Unlock Button and enter your 8 digit unlock code which you obtained earlier from Step2.

Click OK and done.

If you have followed all steps,then your modem will get unlocked for sure.
Well,this trick has worked best for all above mentioned Huawei modems,but if somehow this does not work for you,just post your comment and i will try to reach to you ASAP.

2. Unlock Huawei Modem Online
If you do not want to download any software and still want to unlock your modem,then YES there is an online application which can generate unlock code and flash code which is exclusive for your IMEI and works like charm for various Huawei models.

Models supported -

E1550, E155, E156, E156G, E160, E160G, E161, E166, E169, E169G, E170, E172, E176, E180, E182E, E196, E226, E270, E271, E272, E510, E612, E618, E620, E630, E630+, E660, E660A, E800, E870, E880, EG162, EG162G, EG602, EG602G

It will automatically generates you unlock code and flash code.

Where to use this unlock code ?


To make use of the unlock code, insert an unauthorized sim card to your Huawei modem.
Unauthorized sim card means sim card from other card operators other than the one the modem is currently locked to.
When you will insert, you would be prompted for the modem’s unlock code.
You need to enter enter the unlock code which you have generated earlier form that website.
Its done now,and your Huawei is unlocked. You can now use your Huawei USB modem with sim cards from any other operator. I have tested it on my Huawei E220 and it worked.

Check out some reviews
By elijah luke (California, USA)
This 2Wire wireless modem did not come with any needed wires luckily I was just replacing an old modem and already had the needed cords. Other than that my order came 3 days after ordering in great shape. No software came with it and is not needed. I plugged it into my computer and it went right to the 2Wire site and the site walked me through the needed steps to install other computers to my network using 2Wire adapters. This company KikaEnterprises though Amazon has the lowest prices on used and refurbished 2Wire wireless modems I have found. I would have had to pay 90.00 new at the brick stores. I have this modem upstairs in my apartment the grandkids each have an adapter on their computers downstairs in my son's apartment and it is working flawlessly.
By Rick J "frj11" (South, TX USA)
Simply put this device has functioned flawlessly for the past 24 months. Prior to this I had worked with LinkSys products. This device is head and shoulders above those older devices. I would recommend this device to anyone who needs a DSL link that they want to use and not fix.
