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
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.

switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem....
because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch....
With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub....
This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....
First, be sure to assign an ip address(in the proper subnet) to each VLAN.
Second, use the ip helper-address command in the context of each VLAN, the address used should be the address of the DHCP server
Third, Add a scope for each additional VLAN on the DHCP server.
The switch will route the DHCP request to the proper server based on the ip helper-address command parameter and based on the ip address of the VLAN that is passed tot he server, a DHCP address in the proper subnet is automatically configured.
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.
Are you using the 10Base2 coax outlet, the AIU port or the 8port 10BaseT outlets?
Also are you using port #8 which is an uplink port and not meant to be connected to another computer?
This hub, although rather old, has auto MDI/MDI-X which can accept either straight or cross-over cabling on ports 1-7 and a switchable port #8.
Just make sure your cables are pinned correctly.
Otherwise, hubs are meant to JUST work.
Although this particular hub MAY prevent/hinder DHCP requests (it does prevent DHCP type Boot LAN requests), which means you might want to try connecting between two computers who have a static IP address and are on the same subnet.
"Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
The FR114P has new features that provide better performance and value than the RP114. Specifically, the FR114P has:
a. Better firewall functionality
b. An improved user interface to get your network up and running quicker
c. A faster microprocessor (75Mhz) and 10/100 WAN port for better throughput/security
d. Remote management functionality for easy multi-site deployment
e. Print server functionality
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 time.nist.gov.
Check the clock setting for this.
Have you looked at the traffic logging information from your FR114P? You might want to visit http://www.LinkLogger.com 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 ?
