Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL - http://192.168.0.1 The default login = admin The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings. Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy.

You have to change the ipddress on the router different then the modem. For example 192.168.9.1 and leave the modems ip alone. Plug the cable into the Lan port of the router. Go to the setup screen on the router and tell give your username and password that
Comcast gives you. You will need comcast gateway address and dns numbers. There will be a connect button on the router and tell it connect it to the modem. You are trying to let the router receive that only ip address.
If I am understanding you correctly, you are removing the cable from the modem, then connecting it to the router. This is your first mistake. Once you've completed the connecting wizard on the CD that came with the router, you should take the cable that is connected from your modem to your PC, and disconnect it from the PC and connect it to the "WAN" port on the router. Then take a second CAT5 cable, and connect it to port 1 on the router, then to your PC where the first cable was connected. If this does not solve your issue, please respond.
-- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on Step 7: test the Internet connection on both pc
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.
