Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
Try reseting your router (RESET button on the back) then enter 192.168.1.1 in your browser. User is admin, pass is 'password'. Here, on the conf screen you can change everything you need, including the password, so everything should be much more safer to use. If you need a complete step by step guide on how to use it, you can always check this great users manual. It really helped me a lot. Hope that it will also help you. Good luck! :)

The default login = admin
The default PW = passwordYou can now change the default admin password and configurethe wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.

Are the router addresses assigned on the same subnet?
many routers have a base address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 meaning all addresses 192.168.0.? are part of their network.
One problem can be that both routers can be using the same subnet -- not an issue if they are connected to different connection points (such as two different houses) on the internet. However when connected to each other in your house they are confused because they have the same two different networks with the same addresses. -- for slightly different reasons --
For those that want you to connect from one router to the wan of the other you need to assure the base addresses are in different subnets -- assuming the one connected to the internet is addressed as 184.108.40.206 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network as stated before is all addresses 192.168.0.?. Change the second router to a base address of say 192.168.2.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network is everything staring 192.168.2.? they are now different and it should work. On the wan side of the router you can assign a unique 192.168.0.? address not in the DHCP range of the first router or accept a dynamic IP address from the first router. The dynamic address is probably the easier and less problematic of the solutions.
For those wanting you to connect to a lan port and ignore the wan port they should also have asked you to turn off DHCP in the second router (where you do not use the wan port) and allow the first to do all the dynamic network address assignments. In this case you could have two DHCP servers on the network competing to assign possibly the same network addresses -- if they have overlapping ranges duplicate addresses could be assigned resulting in device connection issues for those with duplicate addresses. Even in this case you may need to assure the gateway addresses are unique on the network ie of both routers are addressed as 192.168.0.1 the second where the WAN is not used could become 192.168.0.2 (where that address is not in the active DHCP server's assignment range) or 192.168.2.0 (note the DHCP server had better be off or else the empty wan port 192.168.2.0 could become the "gateway" address of attached PCs and since there is no connection there will be no access to the internet.
I hope this helps
It is quite likely either solution could work if all the proper changes were made.

You do need a modem ... the tech probably put one in. I say this because you say there are phones, tv and internet involved. There must be a modem somewhere.
You must run ethernet from your router to the modem.
Tell me more, maybe I can give more help

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Looking for the NETGEAR WNR1000 default password?
You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad
f you've forgotten the WNR1000 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device,
the WNR1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the NETGEAR WNR1000, the default password is password. As with most passwords,
the WNR1000 default password is case sensitive
Be sure to change the default router password on your WNR1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in.
Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WNR1000 password
hope this helps
