As a security check, you can have an outside service do a port scan on your IP address to see which ports your router is leaving open. Some ports may appear in the scan, but be shown as "closed". That means that the router is acknowledging the request for these ports, but refusing the connection. Some users prefer to have no response at all from the router, so that there appears to be no device at the IP address. This is called "stealth mode". The solution is to forward the ports in question to a non-existant computer on your LAN. Choose a local IP address that you will not use for any device in your network, such as 192.168.0.199. Then go to the port forwarding menu of your router and forward those ports to that address. Since there is no device at that address, there will be no response. A popular site for having your ports scanned is the Gibson Research site at http://www.grc.com . Select the ShieldsUP test. Stealth mode is not available on other NETGEAR routers.

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 192.168.0.xxx 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) 192.168.1.1
  2. Subnetmask 255.255.255.0
  • Now choose "fixed IP address" for the RP114 and set it to 192.168.1.2
  • Subnetmask is 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway is 192.168.1.1 (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 192.168.1.1 and your RP's address is 192.168.1.2, 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.

I have DSL but it is a direct connection from my DSL modem to my USB connector in the back of my computer, can I use the RT314, RT311, RP114, FR314, FR318 Router as a Firewall?


No, because if there are no Ethernet connections on your DSL modem, there is no way you will be able to connect into a Router that uses Ethernet.

Finding the Dynamic Address Assigned by the ISP on a RT311 or RT314 Router


Here are three ways to find this information: 1. Within the browser interface of the Router, enter Maintenance and the WAN PORT is your dynamic address assigned by your ISP. 2. Enter the telnet interface (start-run-telnet 192.168.0.1-and enter password when prompted) of your Router and enter menu 24.1 (System Maintenance-Status) and the dynamic address is listed as the WAN IP address. 3. Enter the Serial Manager (except the RP114) of the Router and enter menu 24.1 (System Maintenance-Status) and the dynamic address is listed as the WAN IP address.

How To Make a DMZ?


A router normally stops incoming Internet traffic from getting on your network, unless the traffic is in response to one of your computers or when using port forwarding. But instead of discarding the incoming traffic or using port forwarding, you can send incoming traffic to one computer on your network by establishing a "Default DMZ Server". (DMZ = humorous reference to "Demilitarized Zone".) This avoids you having to figure out what ports an Internet application wants ? by throwing all ports open for that computer. For regular network operation, NETGEAR recommends you do not use a DMZ. A computer with DMZ loses firewall protection, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, your own computer can attack the rest your network. Instead of DMZ, use port forwarding. However, the DMZ server feature is helpful: * When you have a problem connecting to an Internet service. Setting up a DMZ will determine whether a closed port is responsible for the problem. * With some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. Follow the procedure under your router model to create a DMZ To Create a DMZ for RP614, MR814, FVS318, FVM318, WGR614 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the username and password for the router (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. Some routers, such as the MR814, use the WAN Setup Options, page, instead. 4. Enter the server's IP address. 5. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for FR114P, FR114W, FM114P, FR328S, FVL328 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the router's username and password (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. 4. Click Rules. 5. Check the box for Default DMZ Server, and enter the server's IP address the corresponding box for the IP Address. 6. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for RH340, RH348, RT328, RT338, RT311, RT314, RP114, RO318, MR314, DG814 * Going through the GUI and going to Port Forward in the left menu bar. * For RM356: Going through telnet and from the main menu go to menu #15. 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the router's username and password (Default username admin, password 1234). 3. From the Main Menu of the browser interface, under Advanced, click Port Forwarding to view the port forwarding menu. 4. Enter the IP address of the DMZ server in the corresponding Server IP Address box. 5. Click Apply at the bottom of the menu.
