Question about Gateway MX7118 Notebook

Can't access aol mail after new Netgear modem/router

I'm on AT&T DSL. I had to replace the modem/router with a NETGEAR DNG2000. It works great on my desktop but I want to use WIFI with my Gateway laptop. I can connect and browse but I cannot get into my AOL mail. AOL is my homepage and I can get there but I cannot get into mail. It says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
- You are not connected to the Internet - but I am connected
- The website is encountering problems. - but it is available on the desktop
- There might be a typing error in the address - not there isn't.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems"

When I did this it says
"Windows did not detect any problems with your Internet connection over HTTP and HTTPS but was not able to make a successful connection over FTP/ The most likely cause of this problem is that a firewall client running on your machine is blocking the necessary FTP ports.

Ifyou are trying to use FTP, please contact the manufacturer of your pc for assistance."
I turned my firewall off and still was not able to get into mail.

There is a firewall inside of your router it is possible that you router is blocking the connection... try going to its webpage and looking for the firewall or de-materialized zone setting.. and allow it to be exposed.. then turn the firewall on ur pc back on...

Hi Leah,
If connecting your pc directly to the modem is faster. Definitely it is the routers fault. If it is still slow then it is your Earthlink DSL is faulty.
You can try reducing the MTU size (default is 1500). You can try these values 1492 or 1300 whichever works fine. You have to access the router's setup page to do this.
Click the link below on how to change the MTU size on a netgear router.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    I'm on AOL and use a Netgear DGB111G router. It's been fine until recently when it takes about 30 times to initialise and for the wireless, DSL & internet to set properly and then we can get on line....


    It could be your router, do you update the firmware of the router? That might help. Also do you have a modem from AOL? if you disconnect the router do you get online right away?

    DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router


    Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
    1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
    2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.
