Howto set up netgear router to my computer?


Turn your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) off.
Turn your computer off.

Unplug one end of the Ethernet cable from the network-port on your computer.

Plug that end into the WAN port on the router.

Take another Ethernet cable, and connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Turn your computer on.

Done -- the 'default' configuration in the NetGear works, 100% of the time.

If it is also a modem you must contact your isp and give them your mac address on the router( located on the bottom usually ). If it is DSL you must enter in the correct PPPOE information so the router can dial into your service.

I am trying to set up my Dynex N wireless router. I can not figure it out. The directions say that I should have colored wires that did not come with the router. I am so confused


no worries. There should be a port labeled 'Modem' bordered in green'. Plug an ethernet cable (looks like an oversized phone plug) in to that port and run it to the DSL/Cable Modem. Power cord should be prtty straight forward it only fits one place. if you have hard wired computers, plug the network cable from the computer into one of the remaing 4 ports, bordered in blue.

If you still have problems, post a comment and I will get a copy & come back to help ya

When i first connect my daughters computer with an belkin wireless router than i stop working than i purchase an d-link not thinking it would make a different but it didn't and still not working do i ahve...


No you can't use two routers (without being an expert to set them up correctly!). Make sure the Belkin isn't plugged in while you're setting up the D-Link. To diagnose the culprit, try these steps:

1) Plug your daughter's computer directly into the ethernet port of the DSL or Cable Modem. You'll need to do this to rule out your Daughter's PC as the problem. If it works fine, then move to step 2. If her computer still isn't working, and another computer connected the same way DOES work - then you need to work on your daughter's computer, becasue that's where the problem lies.

2) Ok since you confirmed your daughter's PC is just fine - and also the DSL or Cable connection is working as well - this indicates most likely the router(s) are at fault. So let's work with the D-Link, since we're not sure if the Belkin is working. Like I said, be sure the Belkin is completely unplugged and powered OFF. Now plug the D-Link into your DSL or Cable modem ethernet port. Turn on the D-Link, make sure the correct indicators are lit on both the DSL/Cable modem and the router. Reboot your daughter's PC and right-click on the wireless networking icon on her taskbar. Choose view available wireless networks - if you see your D-link listed, then the router is working! If you still can't connect - try disabling WEP/WAP and try again. Most likely it's just a security setting that's off.

Good Luck!

How to install a linksys router to my desk top for my wireless laptop

2. connect the router to your DSL or Cable Modem using the supplied ethernet cable
3. connect the router to your computers ehternet port with a second piece of ethernet cable


you can use catagory 5 ethernet cable , or catagory 6

Most linksys routers have 4 to 5 ethernet ports to connect computers to.

One of the ports will be marked as the one to connect to your DSL or Cable Modem

Usually when looking at the back of the router the WAN port will be located to the far left.

I have a linksy instant broadband etherfast cable/dsl router and I have WOW internet service. I'm been using a dell computer and just obtain a EMac computer and would like to share the WOW internet...


Greetings...

Which Linksys router do you have?
If it has 4 ethernet ports in the rear of the router you will need CAT 5 cable to run from the router to the computer...
One cable per computer...
The computer needs to have a network card in it...

So the setup is... WOW modem to Internet input on Linksys router and cables to each computer from the Linksys...
