Question about Arris Wireless G Broadband Router (wr850g)

Our internet went down for several hours (it was an area-wide problem with our server). Once the internet came back up, my motorola 850G router will not work. I have reset the router, but the modem light flashes red.

(It worked for me for WR850G, when I had a similar issue. However, don't know how your connection is setup.)

1. Switch-off the ISP modem that connects to the router
2. Switch off the wireless router
3. Now switch on the ISP modem
4. Switch on the wireless router

Can't play fight night on line because servers are down


Hi hnic2, if the official servers are down that is not any problem with your router so no worries there. It means the company running those servers has 1. taken them down for maintenance or 2. had their servers crash and are in the process of fixing them.

Generally it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours to get servers back online, I would suggest just checking back with it every couple hours or so until they get them back up.

The devices appear to be in functioning order. However, the connection network requires another computer on which signals are directed towards. The computer server on which network resources are acquirable is unavailable. For example, your devices can provide sevices to another computer if any were avialble. Usually an internet provider would allow acess to several computer with subscription. Consult an internet service provider, examples, at & t, T- mobile, Verizon, boost mobile, or consult any available at your local area. www.at&t.com, www.t-mobile.com, www.verizon.com, Goodluck

LOST MY INSTALATION DISK


Go to this URL:
http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/support/default.asp?supportSection=DiscontinuedProducts
Right near the bottom of the page is the WR850G documents, drivers, etc. (might be an idea to let the page load, and then do a CTRL+F to get your find box, and type in 850... there are a couple of 850's on that page, the 850GP and the 850G, so be careful which one you look at :)

Hope that helps!

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.

Can't connect Netgear router with ATT DSL


After you hook everything up the first thing you want to do is power cycle everything. So unplug the power cord on the router and the modem, Then plug the modem back in first and once the lights all come back on then plug in your router and once those lights come up i would reboot your PC and see it that helps.
