Question about NetGear WGR614 Router
I'm trying to set up a wireless network using a router that I had previously used for a different network years ago. I orginally tried connecting the cable modem (Cisco 2100) to the router and then to our MacBook with ethernet cables to both. Only two lights on the modem (Power and Cable) light up, and only the power light on the router lights up. No connection. When I try to restore factory settings on the router, nothing happens. I've held the reset button over a minute and no lights flash or anything. Any insight or tips? Router: Netgear WGR614 v7 Modem: Cisco 2100 Cable Modem

SOURCE: Cannot connect to internet.
Since better than half of my customers use a Cable modem and I sell Netgear routers, this ought to be a piece of cake :-)
It sounds like one of your computers is working fine, and the one you reformatted doesn't. Is it Vista and did you get the drivers for the network card? Whovever reinstalled the OS should have done the drivers, but if they didin't, you'll probably have to go to the computer maker's web site and get them for your particular machine.
It's fairly easy to tell, because if you plug a cable into the network card and it either doesn't light up or is not detected, you don't have drivers or you have other issues. If you somehow do, then you can click on the Control Panel and Network and see the LAN card. It will either be enabled, disabled, or not there.
Once you get it to where you can see the network, now you can go about configuring the connection. I'm betting on missing drivers, but if you have any more questions, feel free to comment back.

That means it hasnt picked up an IP from the modem.
Unplug the power to the modem and the router. Leave them off for a full minute. Pluge the modem in first , give it another full minute then power up the router. If you still have problems try another cable.
If you still have issues, Power off the modem and the PC and repeat the above process.Verify the PC is getting connection. If you cant connect then call the cable/DSL company.
If you can connect download the latest firmware from Netgear and flash the router.

Step 1: Determining the IP Address of a Computer: Follow these steps to check the IP address of a computer for which the Ports are to be opened:
For Windows 2000/XP users:
a. Please click on Start and select Run.
b. Type in cmd and click on OK.
c. In the command prompt, please type ipconfig then press Enter or Return key.
d. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.2 for the computer and 192.168.1.1 for the router).
e. Please note down the IP Address.
Step 2: Logging on to the Router Page:
a. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Click on Enter or Return key.
c. For security reasons, the router has its own username and password. When prompted, enter admin for the Username and password for the Password, both in lower case letters.
Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.
d. You will then see the setup page once you have successfully logged in.
e. A menu will be seen on the left hand side of the router configuration page. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced. For older firmware version, click on Port Triggering tab or just click Port Forwarding on Please select the service type.
f. Click Add and another window will pop up.
g. Type Xbox for Name. Set the radio button to Enable.
h. On Outgoing Port Range, set the Start Port and End Port to 3074.
i. On Incoming Port Range, you also have to indicate 3074 for Start Port and End Port. Save the settings by clicking on Apply.
j. Please repeat steps 4 to 7 and indicate 88 for Start Port and End Port. Then change the Name to Xbox2.

A. Lower down the MTU.
a. Access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2 above).

Do you have encryption enabled on your router? If so you will need to enter the encryption key of the passphrase in the network setup of the xbox 360
