Same old question, but I cannot get a connection between my Netgear wireless router WGR614 to my cable modem.I follow the set up via the router's wizard. But no luck. Even unplugged the modem for 15 mins...


Can you pls confirm if you have cable or PPPoE connection. Also, please connect the modem directly to the computer and let me know the results:

A. Click on Start—Programs—Accessories—Command Prompt.
B. In Command Prompt window, type in 'ipconfig' and hit 'Enter'. Note down the IP Address, Subnet mask & Default Gateway here.
Once I have this information, it will be quite easy to configure the router.

either you need to reconfigure the router for the wireless configuration or setup the router for PPPoE connection. if you have internet directly to the modem contact your router manufacturer if not then you need to contact your ISP and ask if you need to setup the route rwith PPPoE connection and get the user/password

Need help with wireless router and wireless verison card.


You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.

DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router


Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.

Bright house modem and desktop computer, trying to hook up wireless net gear router for 2nd desktop to get internet? How do I configure the cables?


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

Netgear wireless wpn824


Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear

If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.

This problem affects many router brands. The modem can be distinguished from the earlier 5100 by a 5th light labeled "Internet". The SpeedStream 5100b's default configuration is "PPPoE on the Modem" ? matching a built-in PPPoE client convenience feature that sends login ID and password to SBC. To Work Around These Issues, Configure the Modem for Bridged Mode Note: In Bridge Mode you cannot to connect to the modem's configuration menu, except by resetting it as described below. 1.

Log in to the router by typing 192.168.0.1 in your browser. 18. When prompted, using lowercase letters, type admin for the user name, and password for the password. Some older routers use 1234 for the default password. If you forgot your router password see http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=102081&prdid=252188 19. Use the Setup Wizard to connect to the Internet. To Reset the Modem To Enable Access to the Configuration Screen 1. Disconnect the computer from the modem. 2. Power off the modem. 3.
