Open command prompt and do ipconfig and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address .
Default gateway should be if you are not getting valid ip address then check if your ip is assigned manually under TCP/IP properties .It should be obatin an ip address automatically .
Also make sure that modem is connected to modem port .
Also try to disable all firewall from your computer
If you are getting valid ip address and then try to ping in command prompt .check if your getting any replies .If your are getting replies then it could be issue with your Internet explorer settings

Let me know if it doesn't work .Feel free to send me a mail

Netgear WN802T pressing reset buton has no effect

If you want to reset your router to factory default, try the 10-30-10 variant.
  1. Hold down the reset button for 10 seconds.
  2. Unplug the power for 30 seconds but don't let go of the reset button!
  3. Plug in the power again and hold the reset button for another 10 seconds.
Let me know if that helped.
Remember: You will loose all custom information (like passwords, DSL settings, DHCP reservations, etc.)

I have forgotten my user id & password.

On most routers this process works everytime.
First push and hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds, count slow, longer is better then not long enough.
After the reset unplug the device for 30 seconds.
Plus the router back in and perform another 30 second reset.
Now try to login to the device with it's default username / password
This is usually root with blank password for this model.

How do i reset the Netgear EN106tp to factory setting?

Hubs don't have any settings to reset. If it's a router, try the "30-30-30 reset." Get a pen, and hold down the reset button 30 seconds while the router is still plugged in. While still holding down the reset button, unplug the power, hold down another 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and hold down the reset another 30 seconds. The reset button is a small black button that you'll need a pen to push.

Can't find a wireless connection!

Several Questions:
1. Did you reset the unit to Factory default? To tell try to log on to it if it asks for a user and password its:
user: admin
Pass: password
If that doesn't work or if it is nor at that address then it's not reset.

To reset, unplug all cables, unplug the unit hold in the reset button, plug unit in hold button for 30 sec. then release, let go for 30 more seconds, then pull plug again, reconnect all your cat 5's and plug in again. It takes about 1 min. to boot up. Then tru to access the above address to see if it works, if it does all shoud be reset so try to access the Internet through it.

NEtgear RP614 cannot connect after a electricity shortage in our home :(

Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...

Good luck, and have a great day...

Motorola SB4200 Modem IP not working

You can always do the 30-30-30 reset as follows:
  1. When router is powered on, press the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. (Use a paper clip or something sharp)
  2. While holding the reset button pressed, unplug the power of the router and hold the reset button for 30 seconds
  3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and hold for another 30 seconds.
This should allow for a full reset of the modem. Once that's done, connect your computer to it with an Ethernet cable to access it's WebUI using the Default Gateway (, or connect to the WIFI using the default SSID and Password that are usually written on the modem itself.

I hope this works!

I can't access ther router using

Hi Wafula,

Unplug the Dlink, wait 2 min, and plug it back in. If that work, on the back is a small hole, marked RESET. Using a pencil, or straightne out a large paperclip, press that the button inside gently. Hold it for 30 sec. Release and unplug the unit. Shut down the whole network. "Starting from the wall", power up the modem, wait 2 min, power up the Dlink, and power up your machine. Your Dlink should be at default now. Remember to reset you security, change the password, etc.
I have had to do this several times, sometimes unplugging the power, and plugging it back while holding the button. (Got 3 hand?)
Good luck!
