Hello - We have built a new room and I have one end of 100 FT UTP cable connected to my DSL router and the other end is connected to the wall jack. Now, when I connect the wall jack to the laptop, I can...

OK - I first did not understand the problem, but after looking at the manual of the RP114 (if you don't have one, you can get it here), things become clearer.
  • Vocabulary: You say you "put a hub in between", but you connected the RP114 to the wall outlet and a computer to the RP114. Correct? The problem is that this device is not a hub, but a router.
  • By installing a second router, you created a second network, that is not able to talk to your first network. That's why you can't get to the gateway.
  • You will have to re-configure your RP114, so it can communicate with your first router. Actually, you will have to disable all "router" functions, especially DHCP.
So - how do you do that?
  • Connect a computer to the RP114 and check your IP address by typing "iconfig /all" in a command prompt (Win-key+R, then type "cmd" and then "ipconfig/all in the opening window.) You will see that your IP address is somewhere in the range.
  • Find the Gateway information.
  • Look at the manual (pg.41-43) how to connect to the RP114.
  • Start the wizzard. None of these settings are important, except pg.46 "WAN IP Address Assignment"
  • Here you have to match the values to your current DSL router configuration. Let's say my first router has the following information:
  1. IP address (=Gateway)
  2. Subnetmask
  • Now choose "fixed IP address" for the RP114 and set it to
  • Subnetmask is
  • Gateway is (your first router)
  • click Finish
What you did here is to integrate the RP into your first network.
  • Now go to "Advanced Settings" (see pg.55 in the manual) and go to "LAN Setup".
  • Disable DHCP. You don't want to have two devices handing out addresses - let your first router do that.
  • Check the System Status (pg.67) and make sure all settings are applied: WAN should point to your first router, no DHCP on your LAN.
One last thing: whatever IP address you give to your RP114, make sure that you take that out of the DHCP pool from your first router. You didn't mention which router you are using, but usually they all have a setting that defines the DHCP range (see some examples pictures here.) So if your first router's address is and your RP's address is, start the DHCP range outside of these values. In other words: make sure that RP's address is NOT used by DHCP, or your setup might fail. You want to reserve that address for the RP only!

If you think that this is way too much trouble, you can always go here and get a switch for under 20$.;-)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Rp114 will not work with 100 ft. cable works fine on short cables

Try a beefier power supply, if the supply is low, it doesn't go as far.

No network access to Internet due to modem password change by ATT

So you are saying you cannot login to the router itself due to a changed password. The default login is admin and password (or 1234).

If none of these work then you will have to reset the router back to the factory defaults. There is a reset button on the back of the router. Find a paper clip and press the button for approx 10 seconds or until the test light on the front starts blinking. If all goes well the default login should now work. Remember, anything set before as far as static IP's, Ports, Security will be cleared out.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working

DNeser, Port forwarding and static routes isn?t the route to go down to fix this issue. I have an FR114 in a similar configuration and yours should work as well. -When connecting a hub to a router you should be using a certified, standard Ethernet cable, not a crossover. Make sure it?s certified for at least 100 Mbps. -If you are using port 8 on the hub to connect to the router make sure the Normal/Uplink button is set to Normal. -Are the Link and 100 Mbps LED green on both the hub and router ports you use to connect? If not try a known good cable; if that doesn?t work try different ports. Let us know how things work out and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Netgear FR114P Time Checks

Most likely the router if you have the option turned on. Look at Schedule section of the configuration. Another possibility is Windows XP clients, assuming your clients are XP. The default installation has XP checking its time against Check the clock setting for this.

Netgear fr114p constant activity problem

Have you looked at the traffic logging information from your FR114P? You might want to visit and download a copy of Link Logger for your firewall and see what your firewall says is hitting it. Do You have UPNP enabled in the router ?

Connecting a hub

The RP114 has auto-MDI/MDI-X sensing ports which means you can use a crossover cable or a straight cable in any of the LAN ports and it will automatically make a connection to whatever device you are using, so no uplinking is necessary.
