The hard drive may still have an old IP address. Set your network hard drive to DHCP. Make sure the IP clears and it is on the routers IP subnet. Just ping the router

Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /all ENTER.

SOURCE: How can i reset my Linksys Wireless-G2.4GHZ Broadband Router settings

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

Connect tv to network


Get them from the net gear router if you can.
Or one of the PC's connected to the network.
the subnet and the router you need will be identical to that of the PC.
the only change you need to make to the IP address is to make sure that the last octet is different to all others on the network.
The IP address is made up of 4 octets. looking something like 192.168.1.28
or similar. In this instance 28 is the last octet.
DNS is not required for this setup.

Can I use Belkin 802.11g Wireless G Range Extender with virgin broadband?


This is a highly technical question. The technician that installs your fios can help you with an answer. If i'm not mistaken your new fios will come with a special router designed to change the data your recieving to acceptable format and communicate with your other devices. As I stated the tech who installs your fios can further instruct you as to the exact configuration. Hope this helps.

My Netgear router has just been replaced by Virgin Media with a DLink 615. The installation disc won't work, so can a connect without it? I'm running on XP and using Firefox as my browser cheers


You will need to reset the router to factory defaults before you can connect to Virgin Moble there should be a reset button on the back of the router press and hold for 30sec. and then reboot it
here is a link to help you setup the router

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck

Doesn't work with windows vista


1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router).
2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all)
3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.

Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.

4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.

Cannot finish connecting


Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.
