Netgear xe102 isnot picking up an ip address

I would like my sons playstation 3 to use the netgear connnection but it cannot find an ip address to do it,it says connection failed. What do I have to do to get it to just connect to the netgearxe102 and not my wireless router. My wireless router is only hitting about 35% in his room but I can get the signal from the netgear xe102 at 100%. What do I do.

-- Xe102 is a plug n play powerline device
-- there is no specific configuration required for that .
-- try hard resetting from the reset hole on the back of the device
-- then get the powerline checked
-- check the light status of the powerline device.
And if the problem still persists , upgrade the powerline device ..

Cannot connect the 2nd computer to the internet using the ethernet adapter


Most likely, your ISP only allows a single MAC address to connect to them. To make this work with multiple computers you'll need a router that can do MAC address cloning, i.e. it reads the MAC address off of the computer that works and presents this to the ISP in all cases even when the request comes from different MAC address.

The MAC address is unique and set at the factory for each ethernet card so it's not something you can or should attempt to change. If you were able to change the MAC address on the second computer to match the first you would break your network rather than fix the problem.

It is also possible that you are using fixed ip addresses and simply need to configure the NIC on the new computer. If you check the IP v4 settings for the old computer and they have an explicit address for the card then this is is the issue. If so, simply configure the new computer to match the old computer but make sure the last of the four numbers in the ip address is something between 1 and 254 that does not match the first computer or the gateway address.

Netgear WGR614 v6 I would like to host Nascar races & need to open TCP Port 8590 to allow this to happen . Can anyone help me ? Thanks Lenny


You need about 3 pieces of information to make this work; the machine that's going to serve's IP address, the password to your router, and a machine on the network.

You can let the serving machine obtain an IP address automatically, but if it changes you will have to reset your server IP address all the time. So, for fun, give it an address in your IP range, generally 192.168.1.x. Pick a number like maybe 250. Then, log into your Netgear (192.168.1.1) and use admin and the password to get to the router web page. On the left tab, go to port forwarding, create a new custom service, and put in 8590 and the IP address of the server.

Once you apply it, it will show up in the table and you'll see what port, a name, and the internal IP address 8590 goes to.
