2Wire describes its gateways as "intelligent" because they support a variety of infrastructures and broadband types, such as fibre optics and DSL. Networks are difficult to set up because multiple devices, including the gateway, must communicate to make a successful connection. Though 2Wire tries to simplify the networking process with the 2701HG gateway, users still need to occasionally get access to internal router settings to make extra changes and configurations.
