Re: Net gear router again,
You would do this through the setup of the router. With your computer physically attached, allow the machine to get an IP address via DHCP. This will give you the IP address of the router because by default, it's the default gateway...
So, you drop to a command prompt (start, run, cmd and press Enter)
Type ipconfig and press enter
This will get you your IP address, subnet mask and the default gateway
The default gateway is what you want for this part...
Open up Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 (replace it with the IP address you found for default gateway)
You will need the password to get in here...
Once in, you can then poke around the settings and turn off DHCP as well as set many other settings.

Set the modem back to how it was to start with. Plug it into a computer and make sure it is working. Plug the modem into the routed port on the router. This is labelled ADSL on the one I have here, yours may be different - regardless it's the one that goes to the outside world. Set the router to factory and plug the LAN side into the switch. Let the router handle DHCP for the LAN and the modem provide DHCP for the router. This results in two layers on NAT, but it's easier than figuring out how to put your modem into bridge mode.
If you want to turn off dhcp for 2wire then connect the two wire to a computer and use :192.168.1.254 .But if you are doing in for netgear then yes you can use :192.168.0.1 with the user name as admin password as password
*** it will work only if you have never customized the router admin password . else do a hard reset of router (pin hole in the back - press and hold 20 secs )and the router will be in factory default mode ..
firstly, connect your modem to the router and your pc to the router. Next, reboot your PC.
try to access the net. If you now can, great. If not, you may need to switch on DHCP and NAT in your modem.
DHCP means Dynamic Host Control Protocol and NAT means Network Address Translation. Both of these services are required to allow your PC to access the net through your router.
I am assuming that you have a modem and a separate network switch.
If you have a modem and the router is another modem with a network switch built in, then you cannot use them both at the same time. If the router has a modem built in, remove your old modem and set up the router according to its manual. Entering your ISP login details either through the routers setup software or through the routers own browser page. The manual for the router will tell you how to do this. If the router is a netwrok switch, then you will need to log into your modems browser page and turn on DHCP and NAT. Then save and reboot the modem and reboot your PC. Once everything has rebooted, go into your control panel, Network connections and check that a valid connection has been made. If yes, then access the net using your browser. If no, try the Network Setup Wizard to repair or replace the existing setup with an updated one. Just run through the wizard choosing the correct or most appropriate options from the menu's..
the siemens speedstream 4200 is a DSL modem/Router which doesn't have wireless connection. So even tough if you have a computer equiped with a wireless adapter, you will not be able to connect wirelessly because the siemens 4200 doesn't act as wireless access point.
You may need next time to check first if the modem/router to buy support wireless (wifi g or n) and make sure that it's not only a modem, it should be also a router.
i attached here some references for you from the top brands:
1. Linksys DSL modem/Router with wireless N: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/MEA/en/products/WAG120N
2. Linksys DSL modem/Router with Wireless G:
You can find other brands as Dlink, Netgear ...
does your ISP use DHCP or PPPOE and what is the LAN IP address of their MODEM ,,, now IF they use DHCP and Lan ip is anything other than 192.168.1.1 then in back of linksys press reset button in back of linksys and hold it down (with power on to linksys) for 20 seconds then wait for 2 min and turn linksys off (unplug pwr cord) and your modem off for 3 to 5 min. turn your modem on first and wait for your dsl light and wait 2 min then turn pwr on to linksys (plug pwr back in) and wait another 2 min. IF ISP is PPPOE or if their mdm has same lan ip have your ISP bridge mdm if they have dhcp you won't have to do any thing else but pwr cyc as i said above if they use pppoe then have linksys on and type 192.168.1.1 in address bar and type "admin" in for password only (if that don't work use it for both then where it say internet connection type set it for pppoe and type in your email address and password in the username and password field and save and pwr cyc mdm and router again
I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.
Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.
In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server
In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.
If the modem is actually passing out DHCP, then you have to connect the modem to the router 4 port lan side and not the wan port. Give the router a static ip like 192.168.1.2 and you can talk to it and configure the wireless features.
Is there a modem (cable or verizon) connected to your router; if so you might need to turn off your modem, wireless router and computer for five minutes. Then turn on the modem, wait 5 minutes, turn on the wireless router wait 5 minutes, and then boot your computer. Also, make sure your computer's network card is set to DHCP, which automatically assigns your computer an ip address from the wireless router.
It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not
setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP
To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this) a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr. Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:
configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control
panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your
default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general
tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that
"obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following: IP Addr => 10.10.1.1 Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0 Default gateway => IP address from your ISP Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.
