Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working

I have a Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 hub and cannot get the FR114P to pass DHCP requests or internet traffic to the hub. My cable modem is connected to the FR114P and when i plug directly into the FR114P everything works fine. I get an ip address and i can connect to the net just fine. when i then plug in the hub to the FR114P then my pc into the hub i get nothing. I can't even ping the router. I know the hub works and can pass info through it. Do i need to turn on port forwarding or create static routes?

Re: Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working

DNeser, Port forwarding and static routes isn?t the route to go down to fix this issue. I have an FR114 in a similar configuration and yours should work as well. -When connecting a hub to a router you should be using a certified, standard Ethernet cable, not a crossover. Make sure it?s certified for at least 100 Mbps. -If you are using port 8 on the hub to connect to the router make sure the Normal/Uplink button is set to Normal. -Are the Link and 100 Mbps LED green on both the hub and router ports you use to connect? If not try a known good cable; if that doesn?t work try different ports. Let us know how things work out and please don?t forget to rate this post.

The best soultion is to install a hub or a network switch.
If your wireless router has LAN ports then connect your computer with a LAN cable to the wireless router.

Add device to my network

You may be able to log into the access point from a wireless connection, or set your computer to a 192.168.2.x (maybe 10 or higher) and turn off the DHCP of the AP, then change the DHCP of the AP to something fixed in your 192.168.1.x address range like or similar.

Now, plug in the AP to the WGR. It can now be accessed via or whatever you gave it, and it will let the Netgear WGR give out 192.168.1.x addresses through the WAP.

Please provide feedback and let me know if it worked for you. In your spare time, be sure to password protect the WAP away from the default password. Post back if you have any problems and please provide the name of the Access Point so I have an idea what you used. We use TP Links here.

Internet connection

Connect a computer to one of the lan ports 1-4.
Connect the adsl modem to "internet" or "wan" port of hub.
Open the hub's configuration page in your browser, usually this is Under Setup->Basic Setup, set the configuration for "Internet Connection Type " to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP". Under Network Setup, enable the hub's internal DHCP server so your lan hosts can get their ip's from the hub. Each local computer should have DHCP enabled. Your adsl modem must support DHCP for this to work, some do not. If it still doesnt work, try setting "PPPoE" instead of DHCP.

Xbox 360

Either the network connection between the 360 and router is not working correctly, or your router is not configured properly for DHCP.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that automatically assigns a network address (and some other settings) to your computer....or Xbox in this case. It works like this....when your Xbox connects to the network, it sends out a broadcast packet on the network that looks for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is present, it responds. Next the Xbox requests its network address and other settings from the DHCP server. Your WGR614 router has a DHCP server function built in, but it may not be enabled. Try reconfiguring the router using the Netgear "Smart Wizard" installation CD and be sure to enable the DHCP capability, if asked.

Most likely the router if you have the option turned on. Look at Schedule section of the configuration. Another possibility is Windows XP clients, assuming your clients are XP. The default installation has XP checking its time against Check the clock setting for this.

Netgear fr114p constant activity problem

Have you looked at the traffic logging information from your FR114P? You might want to visit and download a copy of Link Logger for your firewall and see what your firewall says is hitting it. Do You have UPNP enabled in the router ?
