First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc).
Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.5 (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP.
The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop:
Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.

How do i open my nat for my motorola sbg900


for static IPs: check your router settings. router should be in "bridged" mode so that all the devices have own static "lan" ips like 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.0.255 router will have one lan ip static and one global ip(one it gets from service provider) you must manually give one address of 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.0.255 for your xbox. then give correct subnetmask (default 255.255.255.0) and gateway routers lan ip (default 192.168.0.254) you can aslo put routehrs lan ip as default dns if needed dmz or port forwarding is a tool in your router settings you can assign outside ports to specific ip i have only done manual port forwarding, not sure how dmz works.

Port forwarding for model number F7D5301


To setup port forwarding on this router your computer needs to have a static ip address. Or you can take alook at our Static IP Address guide to setup a static ip address. When you are finished setting up a static ip address, please come back to this page and enter the ip address you setup in the Static IP Address box below. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. If you do not know your routers internal IP address please read our How To Find Your Routers IP Address guide.

The address bar has http://www.fixya.com/AnswerQuestions.aspx#top in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your router. By default the IP address should be set to 10.1.1.1.

We do not currently know the default username and password for your router.
Click the NAT button near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
Enter the name of the program into the Description box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Enter the port to forward into the Public Port and the LAN Port boxes.
Use the Protocol Type drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.
Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the LAN IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box.
Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
When you're finished, click Save Setting near the top of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

I am trying to install the WRT160 N router, but can't install it due to having a Static IP. What should I do? The set up CD is giving the message that the the ethernet cord isn't plugged in. All I am doing...


Do not run the set up disc do it manually.
.You said that you have a static IP.
Is the static IP for the internet service provider or it is on the computer.
If you have set up the static IP on the computer then you will need to remove the static IP address from the computer and set it to obtain IP automatically.
If you have a static IP given by the ISP then you can use it to set up on the router.
Check the Ip address of the computer when connected to the router.
I believe the default gateway will be 192.168.1.1.
open the set up page of the router. default password of the router will be admin. Once you open the set up page of the rotuer, you will find the option Internet connection type. set it to STATIC IP address.
then you will get the option to enter the static IP address given by ISP.
Enter the information and Click save settings at the bottom and you will
be able to go online.

Motorola SBG900 Assign network address to computer


I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"

Laptop sees the wireless network and connects, but then indicates that there is little or no connectivity. Help


this mostly happens when the router has been configured to block certain devices. take a look at the wifi config, look for IP-filtering or MAC filtering. you should see tables containing letters and numbers. make sure this table is empty

Make sure that your router and computer are set to get their IP addresses via DHCP.
Either the router is not setup as DHCP server or your computer has a static IP address assigned which conflicts with the router settings.
Do you have cable or DSL service (in which case the router should be set to PPPoE)?
If you have cable service, just reset the router to factory default by pressing the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds.

Then go to your computer and
  1. Go to Control Panel -> Network Connections.
  2. Right-click your Local Area Connection and choose Properties.
  3. Scroll down and double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  4. Make sure that all settings are set to Obtain ...automatically.
Click OK two times (the second time takes a little bit longer, because the settings are applied.

If you have any more questions or need help with the settings, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Having problem installing my dlink dir615 router


First, is the problem truly that you can't get an IP address from the router or is it that you can't get on the internet. I will touch base with both issues briefly. Many newly placed routers need the MAC address cloned within the router setup to register with the ISP and recieve internet access. If the PC is truely not recieving an IP from the router, make sure DHCP is turned on and set a range of address you wish use. Tip: limit the number of addresses to only what you will actually use. Make sure your computer is set to recieve an IP automatically and you have the proper client, service and protocols running. Basically, If the PC will run directly from the cable modem, then it should run from the router also. If the PC will not obtain an address from the modem directly then your winsocket may be corrupt. Malware will often do this. It is easily repaired and there are many winsock32 repair tools on the net. Just Google "winsock repair" without the quotes and you will find a multitude of software.

Help with Static IP address configuration


no need to set static IP addresses for the PC, i have been using UTorrent client with a laptop and used the laptop on different network, just set your torrent port to be dynamic, or let the torrent client find an open port everytime you use it (it is always under network settings / preferences).

if you have other questions just let me know, i'd be more willing to help out.

I am trying to connect to xbox live through my WR850G router


It sounds to me like you need to open ports 88 through 3074 instead of just opening the two. So this way you open Port 88 to 3074. I can further assist you if you have the router info.

Reconfigure router


Changing settings on your computer does not affect your router, but since the other computers cannot pick up the signal, then there is something wrong here.. See if there is a reset button on the Motorola and press it for 30 seconds to see if the router resets to its original configuration. If not, then you need to hardwire your computer to the router and get into the config page. usually, to do this, you just open up a browser and in the address line, type in the Default Gateway Address (usually this is 192.168.1.1).

To find the DG for your LAN:

Start > Run > cmd (ok)

From the Command Shell type:

ipconfig /all > ip.txt
notepad ip.txt

This should open a window with all your IP information in it. you will find a line called Default Gateway.. this is the address (probably 192.168.x.x) that you put in your Browser Window Address Line to access the configuration page of the router..
