In order to make a 2Wire Homeportal 1000 series modem function on a Sonic.net Fusion of ADSL1 connection, it is typically necessary to disable PPPoE.

  1. Go to http://home/setup/ in the browser of your choice. If this doesn’t work, try http://192.168.1.254/setup/ or http://172.16.0.1/setup/.
  2. You may be challenged for a login name and password to proceed.
  3. You should be prompted for a key code:
  • For a DHCP setup, enter the following code: 5225-26Q4-2262-22AS-B28F
  • For a Static IP setup, enter the following code instead: 5225-26R4-2E62-22AS-B27H

Alternately, you can use the normal web interface with the following procedure:

  1. First, you’ll need to access the 2wire’s web interface. Go to http://home/ in the web browser of your choice. If this doesn’t work, try http://192.168.1.254 or http://172.16.0.1
  2. You may be challenged for a username and password
  3. Select "Broadbank Link"
  4. Select "Advanced Settings"
  5. Change connection type to "Direct IP (DHCP or Static)"
  • Make sure that both the Broadband IP and Broadband DNS are set to “Obtain Automatically” if you wish to use DHCP for network configuration.
  • For a static configuration, furnish the IP address, Gateway, Subnet Mask, and DNS provided.

If for some reason you are challenged for a login name and password you do not know, contact the vendor that sold you your 2wire Homeportal. Repeatedly requesting a password hint may cause some models to prompt for the 2wire’s serial number instead, but we have not found this to be consistent across all models.
