What are you using for your main router (xfinity wifi)? The best way is to set the ecb350 in AP Router Mode not a repeater since you have a rj45 cable long enough to go from one of the ports on the xfinity wifi router and hook it into the ecb350. You will need to know what your ip address range is for example if the xfinity is 192.168.1.1 then you want to assign a static address for the ecb350 to be 192.168.1.100 (assigned IP Address) You will also need the Subnet mask, Default Gateway IP Address, and Primary DNS and Secondary DNS of the xfinity wifi router. Then on the ecb350 you will need to configure the following with the info you go off the xfinity router:
Internet Connection Type
Select Static IP to begin configuration of the Static IP connection.
ie: 192.168.1.100 (assigned IP Address)
IP Subnet Mask
Specify the subnet mask of your Xfinity Router
Gateway IP Address
Specify the gateway of your Xfinity Router
Specify the primary DNS server's IP address of your Xfinity Router
Specify the secondary DNS server's IP address of your Xfinity Router
Discard Ping on WAN
Check to Enable to recognize pings on the ECB350 WAN interface or Disable to block pings on the ECB350 WAN interface. Note: Pinging IP addresses is a common method used by hackers to test whether the IP address is valid. Blocking pings provides some extra security from hackers.

Hope that this help you.
Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop. Connect
your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with
following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access
it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your
router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type
user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you
can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to
access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press
RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all
settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code
password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and
restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me
know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Try assigning the IP address manually. To do so go to Network Connections, right click on the wireless connection and click on Properties, select Internet Protocol TCP/IP and click on Properties again. Select use the following IP address and type the address of the same range as of your Router's IP. In case you do not know the range try 192.168.1.5 or 172.16.1.5 with the subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 for both, and when you use the IP as 192.168.1.5 use the default gateway as 192.168.1.1 and for 172.16.1.5 use the default gateway as 172.16.1.1 Also select the lower option as "Use following DNS Server address" and for 192.168.1.5 use 192.168.1.1 and for 18.104.22.168 use 172.16.1.1 .Click on Ok. Click on Ok again and now check for the connectivity.
So what is the IP Address that the iPod Touch gets? Does it match with what range the BT gives out?
Does anything else connect through that router successfully?
You might try changing the WEP, WPA, WPA2 that you are using ... see if that helps the iPod touch to connect. I've seen where certain computers, etc. do not like WPA or WPA2 or certain passwords or key codes.
netgear support software could be bad. The ipod might not be able to read signal. umm try restoring the ipod. then plug it to your computer let it recognize it and then before you add ANYTHING to it, go straight to the setting and put in the router number and everythign and see if it works. I know people hate it but restoring it usually works. Its just simple small virus's that hit your ipod through songs and stuff and it eventually makes everything stop working. So get back at me let me know if restoring it worked.
ok do this if it is already showing your router up on your portable device but it has that security lock and you are unable to join or need a password which u dont know lol go to that network and on the top push forget this network. than go back and click on for other location. than for the name put in your router name usually 5 characters long make sure u use capitalization cuz its case sensitive. than select what kind of key u have it should say right on the side of your wireless router. than type the key in usually a wep key and u should be set to join it if it doesnt auto matically do soo
The IP address that the iPod is showing is a "self-assigned" address meaning that it has looked around for something to give it an IP (i.e. a DHCP server) but not found anything. There could be lots of reasons for this. First, on your wireless router, is it set to broadcast its SSID? If not, the iPod can't see it. Second, is the router set to act as a DHCP server so that computers etc can be assigned an IP address and the network info needed? Third, does your router have a setting to only allow connections from specific devices, normally identified by their MAC address? If so, you'll have to check the MAC address of your iPod and add that into the list. Finally, do you have security settings such as WEP or WPA encryption on the router that you need to enter the details of into your iPod?
