I have just got a net gear v3 modem to use with aol and a wireless laptop. and every time i attempt to search for the router it shows up as nothing found not even my neighbours wireless which showed before which oddly enough now it does not!?
havent got the box or installion instructions so was just wondering how to set it up so it can be found. have previously used the modem at a previous address.

Re: wireless not visible
Try the following 2 things;
1 does the laptop have a wireless switch or button if so try pressing it to see if it had been accedentially turned off, normally you will have a light somewhere on the laptop suggesting that the wireless card is on.
2 if the laptop wireless nic is turned on, try using the microsoft "Wireless Zero Configuration" service to configure your internet connection. depending upon what you have installed on your system the general idea would be from the application settings if installed / avaliable select "allow windows to manage my wireless connection" different applications use different descriptions but hopefully you get the idea. once done or if this step is not appropirate then manke sure that the "Wireless Zero Configuration" service is started;
right click on the my computer icon and select manage
then expand "services and applications" and select "Services"
(on the right hand panel you should see a list if services on your computer)
scroll down the list and find the "Wireless Zero Configuration" service right click on it and select properties.
once displayed make sure that application startup is set to "automatic" and click start if needed.
close "computer management"
then just where the time is normally displayed you should see an icon showing a computer with cartoon brackets eminating from it. right click and selct view wireless networks. and see if you can now view wireless networks.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first. 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.

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.
Connect the lan cable from the dsl modem into the first port on your netgear router .. make sure your dsl modem is on PPPoE mode so that it autoconnects.. Now just connect to your wireless router via your pc interface.. *Do add a network key to your wireless network to avoid unwanted access
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.
As you say that, you are able to go online with the modem, connect your modem- router and laptop witha cable and check if you are able to go online with the router wired first, if yes, then the w/ls settings has to be checked..open your w/ls network connection, remove your preferred wireless network and then try to reconnect again and check.. if you are not able to gon online wired with the router, disconnect power cables from modem- router , wait for 10 sec, and reconnect it , wait till all the lights come up and then reconnect, check if you are able to go online if not your router has to be reconfigured,,
