Type in the routers sign in address in the address bar and you can open up the admin page. If I remember correctly, the url is http://www.routerlogin.net/ or http://192.168.1.1/ The default sign in is admin for the user id and password in the password box. User id = ADMIN and password = PASSWORD. This will get you to the default settings of your router and then you can set it up secure.

I need to connect a D-Link router to my cable modem so that I can use my laptop anywhere in my home


Cable-modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN (or "Internet") port on the router

LAN port on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your laptop

Then, access the "built-in" web-server on the router,
and run the "Wireless Networking Setup" wizard:
* to set an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (Hint: choose 'wpa')
* a password for your wireless network

Then, disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer,
and then "wireless available wireless networks".
Select your newly-created network, and connect to it.

Wireless router cannot find internet


Well the memory issue and the inabilty to "net" connect are not "connected" to each other.

In order to answer the memory question I need your exact model #

As for the internet .. be sure your are connected first properly at the cable modem. Then from the modem to the router you should have a CAT5 cable. Then from the router to a PC so that you can configure the router and setup the wireless properties

I have 2 computers. I can connect to the internet wirelessly with the XP one through a Netgear router. My HP Touchsmart,Vista Home Premium, purchased recently,will connect through an Ethernet cable, but...


Are you sure that your PC has a built in wireless function and not just a regular modem ??

If you just have a modem you will need to purchase a USB wireless interface the link below will take you to one perfectly compatible with your router.

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 just buy a d-link wireless router and have problen with the installation


Installing a Wireless Router Is usually a step by step process for all brands , To get this installation done properly first thing you want ot do is Plug in the power cord and turn this Router on nearby the Modem that your internet Service Provider gave you. Once the Unit is powered I would like you to unplug the ethernet cable that is going from your cable box to your desktop and plug that ethernet wire to the back of your new D-link wireless router into the WAN port. Once you do that you should allready be transmiting wireless but your name will be the default D-Link and you wont be encrypted (Protected from others getting into your internet). To get password encrypted you will have to using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box and press enter. Then from there you should select the Wireless section and put a SSID name which is what shows up when you find your wireless router on another computer and WEP or WAP is the password encryption if you want to make it easy I would suggest you use a WEP 64 BIT and that will only ask you for a 10 digit number. I usually tell my customers to put in there phone number with the area code . then from there you can navigate the other options you can customize and save the router settings and you should be up and running from there. using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box

I tried to connect netgear WG111v2 but got problem istallation is not able to connect wirelesly


Uninstall any software the router came with on any of the computers, it's not needed.

Reset the router by holding down the small pinsized hole in the back for 20 seconds.

Make sure modem is hooked up to router IN port.

Make sure all Windows updates are installed in a PC.

Make sure wireless card switch is in the on position.

DO NOT encrypt anything at first, try connecting under an open network. Meaning do not change any of the routers factory settings. If you can connect, continue form here to encrypt. Hope this helps!!!!

Netgear WGR614


First thing I did with my Netgear is this.
Plug in the dsl/cable modem to the PC directly. Then install the driver on the cd. If you are one of the unlucky types like I was, the router didn't come with a cd. Try going to Netgers page see if they have a driver. Most are basically auto install. Try this before you check the netgear site though. Plug in the cable/dsl modem to the router and the pc to the router. Resstart everything. This includes the modem, router and pc. When it pops back up, try seeing if that works. if not, try opening up Internet explorer. Type this in to the url. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0
That should bring up the netgear setup page for the router. If it ask for a password, the password on mine was
username - admin
password - password
It has an auto configure tab so click on that and that should automatically take care of everything for you. Let me know what happens!
