Re: Net Gear Router
You should be able to get into your routers settings by typing in it's IP address in your internet browser, eg 192.168.2.1 or something similair.
assuming you are connecting via an RJ45 Lan vable as you don't mention wireless, when in the routers settings look for the DHCP settings, this should be automatic so as to assign your pc an IP addresss automatically.
When you connected your modem to the router, this should have been set up automatically as is usual with cable, so if still no connection go to your network cards properties in Control Panel>Network Connections, right click>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure obtain IP address automaticcaly is ticked and click OK.
Go to your Internet browser>internet options, then click the connections tab and make sur that 'Never Dial a Connection' is ticked.
Restart your pc and try to connect to the internet.

Yes, it should be easy to connect your Xbox One to the internet.
Assuming your Netgear router is wi-fi capable, go to Network settings on the Xbox One. This will display Network status - wireless settings - etc. Follow the setup procedure here: Network settings on Xbox One
firstly, connect your modem to the router and your pc to the router. Next, reboot your PC.
try to access the net. If you now can, great. If not, you may need to switch on DHCP and NAT in your modem.
DHCP means Dynamic Host Control Protocol and NAT means Network Address Translation. Both of these services are required to allow your PC to access the net through your router.
I am assuming that you have a modem and a separate network switch.
If you have a modem and the router is another modem with a network switch built in, then you cannot use them both at the same time. If the router has a modem built in, remove your old modem and set up the router according to its manual. Entering your ISP login details either through the routers setup software or through the routers own browser page. The manual for the router will tell you how to do this. If the router is a netwrok switch, then you will need to log into your modems browser page and turn on DHCP and NAT. Then save and reboot the modem and reboot your PC. Once everything has rebooted, go into your control panel, Network connections and check that a valid connection has been made. If yes, then access the net using your browser. If no, try the Network Setup Wizard to repair or replace the existing setup with an updated one. Just run through the wizard choosing the correct or most appropriate options from the menu's..
The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.
Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page. To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
Verifying Internet Connection
Connecting the Devices Together
Checking the LEDs
Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.
I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.
Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.
In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server
In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.
a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".
Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.
2. Adjust the MTU setting.
a. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab. b. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300. c. Click on the Apply button.
Note: You may verify from your ISP the recommended MTU size you can use.
It's not unheard of for a router to fail. When you connected the computer to the Modem, did you use the same cable that was connected to the router? Does your internet connection require a username and password? If so, is that configured in your modem, or the router? If not in the modem it must be the router.
