Netgear model 7550 keep rebooting

Several times a day my Netgear Modem reboots itself ... Model 7550 provided by Frontier internet provider. I'm not the most tech savvy person, but have tried several suggestions I have found on the internet. The problem is not with my network card/adapter in my laptop as I have checked Device Manager and found no errors.

SOURCE: ComCast phone w/ DHG535-2 modem: No dial tone.

hey, a little late on this one, im actually working atm at comcast on tech suppport and came across this posting, if you look on the back of the modem, there is a small hole, for a pen or a pin, that is how you would reset it, if you are just pulling out the power, that will not do much.. as there is a back up battery in the modem that kicks in so you dont lose your phone.

Hi,
To get the IP Address of your Modem you will need to call your Internet Service Provider to get that info, and they can as well assist you in getting that in the Netgear Router.
Or in you windows settings you can check the option in Network and Sharing Center

Click on Home Group and Sharing Options above,
mvincentc_50.jpg Then select Change Advance Sharing Settings... to see the pic/page below mvincentc_51.jpg
Click on the Drop Down of home network to see the exact page posted and select all turn on network discovery so every time you turn your computer ON it will detect you network right away.
I do not think this will be an IP Address issue from the Modem since it should be auto detected by the router.
But if that would be the case then calling your Internet Service Provider will be best so they can provide you the correct IP Address from the modem and help you enter it in the Netgear Router settings.
I hope this helps.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

Turn the cable-modem off.
Unplug the AC poewr to the cable-modem.
Turn the router off.
Unplug the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power to both the cable-modem and the router.
Turn the router on -- this off/on sequence should "reset" the cable-modem and the router.

If the router still does not work, replace it.

If the cable-modem does not work, get RoadRunner to replace it, if they want to keep you as a paying customer.

Does it feel hot to the touch? Is it dusty? Do you have it sitting where it can get air circulation around it? If it is getting air and isn't dusty the unit might be getting glitchy. They can do that before they go out sometimes. It may need to be replaced. However you may also have a problem with the connection itself on the other end (the provider's end). If you don't have a static ip address most ISP's will assign a different ip address if/when the modem is rebooted sometimes, but they can also keep the same ip address for a long time dispite rebooting. (when you unplug and start it again it is rebooting). You might want to check with your provider and see if they can change it to see if that helps. Sometimes it's their end that is glitchy...

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.


Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.


  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    MY INTERNET KEEP FREEZING WHEN I REBOOT MY MODEM ROUTER IT WORKS AGAIN FOR A WHILE


    avoid too many phone extensions and check your line for loose connections or corroded copper wires especially on your conduit box.

    provide DSL splitter for every phone extension you've made.


    hope this solves your problem.

    NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter


    After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
    Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
    the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
    got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
    router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).

    I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
    on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
    "Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
    hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
    as a passphrase to create another key.)

    To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
    selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
    the router/access point uses for security) manually.
    I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.

    I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
    TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
    to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
    to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)
