I thought I was doomed to a lifetime of updating my Nook in the McDonald's parking lot, but I got an answer from 2Wire about connecting my Nook to my home system. Here it is. I tried it & it worked! The "password" is not the password you use to log into your 2Wire account; it is the "key" referred to below.
All you need to do to connect any device to your 2Wire gateway wirelessly is to use your Nook network setup in Wireless mode to locate the SSID of your network and enter the WEP key when prompted.
The SSID, or network name, will be 2WIRE###, where ### is the last three digits of the Serial Number, or SN, off the sticker on the HomePortal.
However, you'll need the key in order to connect to the network, because the network is locked, or security enabled. The key is the ten digit number located between [square brackets] just a bit below the SN. If your client manager wants technical information, then it is a 64bit WEP hexadecimal key.

This is great news (yay your NOOK works!) and great of you to share it!
If you don't mind, you might want to add it to this thread: http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/NOOK-Techni

If you still cannot connect to your (AT&T) 2Wire router, after getting the correct WEP key, try re-booting the router. That was what was necessary in order for me to connect my Nook to my 2Wire router.
