Well, I dusted off an older 2Wire router (1000SW) and plugged it into the equation. It will restore DSL service immediately, and will provide most of the services that we used to utilize on the newer 1800HG. It will lack some services, like Wireless â€œGâ€, â€œIPSec Passthruâ€, and of course all of the firewall entries that I had created on the 1800HGâ€¦ sighâ€¦
Iâ€™ve written 2Wire Technical Support to see if they could assist. I remembered that they had assisted the last time I had this problem (yes, it has happened before) by sending me a complimentary replacement cord/adapter. I think they felt bad that the router (very high-end electronics with Integrated Circuitry) was lasting longer than their A/C Adapter power cord.
