My question is; can the last port-line from my Netgear WGT624 Wireless Firewall Router be split into three different separate line ends. With only one that will be in use at any given time?

Hi,

To my knowledge yes assuming you can assure yourself that only one will be used at a given time. Alternately, when not just extend the last port using a hub?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have Time Warner Service set up @ home for my Home PC. I bought a Netgear N300 Wireless Router for my laptop. Do I have to plg into the Time Warner Modem to set up my Laptop? ANd what do I do?


The modem wants to plug into the wan or internet port on the router, this port is usually different in color and location from other wired ports.

You will want to program the router settings, either use the wizard, or change: Wireless security wit WEP at least, and give a password, like you home or cell phone number (which you can remember when a guest comes and needs access), change system ID to something you would remember, change router access password AND LOG IT,
and check that the router broadcasts it's presence (usually set to yes), and finally change the channel to 11 and get less landline wirelss phone interference.

To do this programming, by the way, you usually need to plug into the modem with a network cable and direct your browser to it, something similar to 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, but get the manual and follow their directions.

Howto set up netgear router to my computer?


Turn your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) off.
Turn your computer off.

Unplug one end of the Ethernet cable from the network-port on your computer.

Plug that end into the WAN port on the router.

Take another Ethernet cable, and connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Turn your computer on.

Done -- the 'default' configuration in the NetGear works, 100% of the time.

Wireless feature doesn't work.


I think the 2wire router has a separate password setup to configure the wireless access. Go to your ISP provider's website and search Internet Help & Support/ Modems and see if there are not instructions to guide you. If you can't find anything, perhaps this link will lead you in the right direction...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Hallo , I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D-10Q and a Netgear wireless router from Virgin 54 Mbps do i need a card to go into the laptop to get on to the inter net thank you.


Compliancy : Wi-Fi®
Network Support : 802.11b/g
Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN

That is the internal wireless so no you dont you need any thing to set up a wireless connection
You need to set up your wireless network

Or you should have got an ethernet cable with the router usually small yellow, blue or blue. plug this cable into one of the ports on the back of your router then the other end of cable to the ethernet port on side (i think) of laptop anc conect phone line from main box to router. You dont need no software just switch on router wait a couple of minutes till all lights on router turn green and click on your internet explorer done!

How to connect wireless router, Netgear WGR614, to my computer?


4 steps to set up your home wireless network
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
Shopping list
• Broadband Internet connection
• Wireless router
• A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter

A wireless router
The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
A wireless network adapter
Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
2.
Connect your wireless router
Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

I want to diasble my router firewall and cant fiquere where its at


Disable router firewalls by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section.

To log type http://192.168.0.1

The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.
Step2Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client. Step3Find your internal IP address. Step4Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out. Step5Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded. Step6Log in to your router's administration interface. Step7Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model. Step8Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address. This will fix your problem. Don't forget to rate my help! :-)

do you still have it connected direct when you're doing the wireless? also, go to your control panel, and click on wireless configuration icon, and follow those steps.

make sure all wireless connections are in positive(on) condition.
