Hi and welcome to FixYa,

First congratulation on your new wireless router, not the worst by these days :-)

You unplug your internet connection, where your computer now connects to the internet.
Then, you use the short cable to connect between the modem and the router in the one named WAN.
Next to this, is four called LAN, - you connect your computer to one of these (which one don’t matter).
Then you use the CD that came with the router, and follow each step.

It is very important that you set up the Admin password, so that your neighbor can’t access your router and change the setup.
Then in "Wireless ->Wireless security" setup one of the keys.
Allso the SSID, your own network "name".

Write everything down, as you have to set up the same on your laptop later.

If you need additional info, do come back, I’m here to help you.

What are the numbers on my netgear n600 dual band gigabit router?


The numbers are the LAN ports on the router. When a number is turned on, it indicates a LAN device (computer) is connected to the router and is active.
If a device is connected to the router and that LAN port number is not turned on then either the LAN cable is faulty or the LAN card in that computer is faulty or LAN driver is not installed.

I have a comtrend ADSL2+Ethernet Router hooked to my desktop Pc and a G-Wireless Router made by Belkin.According to the tech I should be able to connect these two to use my Laptops, but any way I've tried...


You dont need a Belkin Disk to set up - this can be done manually you can get a manual from this site http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/product/list/q/routers/ select G in the first dropdown and then your model - theres two to choose from and then then the version
you have a choice - you could change the comtrend router to just use the modem - bridged mode - they have a few different routers see here http://www.comtrend.com/links/i$residential-adsl2-modem-router$product.htm so not sure which one you have if you can bridge to just use the modem then connect tothe Belkin and all PCs should connect to the Belkin
OR you can connect two routers together Leave the comtrend router set as it is -
Set the IP address of belkin router to same subnet as the comtrend. Depending on the DHCP range of the comtrend router - set the IP outside this range - so if comtrend is set to give an ip of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.100 - set the belkin to 192.168.0.254 Disable the DHCP in the belkin.
Connect the comtrend LAN to one of the Belkin LAN ports - you may need to use a crossover cable. On the belkin the WAN port will be left unconnected

Belkin Router


Log onto the router to see if the entire box is hanging or only the conection to the internet.

Check for a 'Auto Reconnect Setting" in the router.

If there is alot of Noise on your DSL lines it could disconnect without re-connecting.

Also check to make sure you have all your filters installe don the phone lines....

Bt broadband wireless


Go into your device manager and check and see if the usb connections are active and not turned off. If thats all ok open your network connections and make sure you see a wireless adapter there you should see two connections there, one should be lan adaper, and two should be wireless adapter. If not I need a little more info. Just write back to this sight and give more info what operating system your have wireless card ect. anything that will help, I hope this helps you out, usually you can fix it a couple differant ways you can email me anytime for more info.

Hello, The wire from your cable modem plugs into the WAN (labelled "connect to modem") port on your wireless router. You then need to install the software on your PC to set up the router.
