Can't connect to Wireless?
Check your Device Manager to make sure your Wireless card is working properly. Right click My Computer, choose Properties>Hardware>Device Manager.Click the + sign next to Network Adapters. Is the name of your wireless NIC showing? If so, it should NOT have a yellow question mark or exclamation point next to it. If so, it probably needs to have drivers installed or updated. Also, right click the device and if it gives you the option Enable, click that.
Now let's check to make sure the signal is out there.Go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections. Under LAN or High-Speed Internet, do you see Wireless Network Connection? If so, is there a red X or does it say Connected? If it doesn't say Connected, right click the Wireless Network Connection icon and choose View Available Wireless Networks. Do you see you network name there? If it doesnt'say Connected, highlight it by clicking it once and choose Connect at the bottom right.
If you haven't set up your wireless connection yet, this is the place to do so. Look on the left side under Network Tasks.Click Set up a wireless network for a home or small office. Click Next after the screen opens, name your network (SSID) and assign the security you want.
For your wireless router, are all the lights correctly lit? Your user manual will let you know what those should be. Have you gone into the properties of your router and set it up? This requires typing an IP address into the address bar of your web browser (typically Internet Explorer). Your manual will also tell you what the address, administrator account and password will be.
If all this fails, we'll dig deeper. These are the usual things to check and most often the problem will be solved.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, connect the modem direct to one of your computers to determine if you can access the Internet. If yes, then the modem, the Internet subscription/account and the computer settings are OK. Perform an "ipconfig /all" (less the quotes) inside a command prompt. Note down the IP addresses. Without powering OFF, install/insert the router into the network/system, power it on and check again after the router has initialized itself. If Internet connection is gone, then chances are that the modem and the router both operates a DHCP feature/function. Should this be the case, then disable the DHCP feature/function of the modem and make the WAN IP address of the router to comply with those prescribed by the modem. The numbers listed earlier could be used.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Alternately, or better yet initially, goto Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections tab, remove all entries in the "Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings (if they would no longer be needed). this is to ensure that the laptop would seek Internet connection through the networking (whether wireless or wired).

You will need to boot them in order of connection. First unplug both the modem and router. Then plug in the Comcast modem and wait for 1 minute till it logs in. Next plug in your wireless router and wait for it to finish its login process. Now turn on your computer/laptop and wait for it to connect. If still no internet, right click the computer icon in the system bar and choose repair. Hope that helped.

Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Netgear wireless router


Most likely the router is not configured for dhcp or is not renewing to pull an address from your new provider. You will need to login to the router and check the WAN ip address settings. Choose dynamic ip address (it may be currently set for for static or another option based on your previous provider). Once you choose and save the settings, click to renew the WAN ip. If you were already set for DHCP and the address is correct, you may still have an issue with DNS,.. the DNS addresses may be incorrect or non existent. If you have doubts about DNS addresses,.. you may change them to 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 (opendns) and they will work with most providers (including comcast)
I hope this helps,.. if you need details,.. please leave a comment and I can supply more.

How can I my up my comcast netgear modems wireless to work? when I try my PS3 it detects a sginal but wont obtain an IP address. The same with my lap top.


You have to change the ipddress on the router different then the modem. For example 192.168.9.1 and leave the modems ip alone. Plug the cable into the Lan port of the router. Go to the setup screen on the router and tell give your username and password that
Comcast gives you. You will need comcast gateway address and dns numbers. There will be a connect button on the router and tell it connect it to the modem. You are trying to let the router receive that only ip address.

Netgear wgt624 just stopped connecting to internet


I encountered the same problem, with the same modem and also Comcast, and here's what wound up working for me, after time spent with a nice guy on the Netgear customer support line:

1. Log into router: http://192.168.0.1 (or 192.168.1.1) - user: admin / password: password

2. Under Maintenance, click Router Status. If IP Address is listed as 0.0.0.0, there's your problem-- router isn't getting address from modem.

3. At bottom of Basic Settings, under Router MAC Address, change selection from Use Default Address to Use Computer MAC Address.

4. Click Apply.

5. Click Router Status again-- non-blank IP address should now be listed.

6. Basic Settings will now show MAC address under Use This MAC Address. See if you can get online now. I could, and I hope you can, too!

Problem with netgear super g router


Here's sort of a checklist of things to consider:

1. First of all, connect the computer directly to the cable modem. Make certain that your ISP (Comcast) is providing internet service. Modems (DSL, cable) typically have a web page (HTML document output format) interface through which you can connect with your favorite HTTP client (that is, browser), such as MS Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. You can always connect to that if your computer has been given an IP address: you would look for the device you are connected to (modem, router) as the "gateway IP address" (for modems, it might be a 10.0.0.x IP number or something like that; for routers, it might be a private LAN address of 192.168.x.x or 172.16.x.x or something like that). Type in the gateway IP address: if it unsecured, you will see the interface immediately with gettable (status) and settable (configurable) form controls; if it requires authentication, you must enter a username/password combination to gain access to the interface. The default username/passwords are provided in the user guides of the device from the manufacturer.

2. Once you are sure the modem is providing service and that you have configured it properly, then remove the connection to the computer and connect the router. Check that all the lights of the router illuminate properly after startup.

3. Now connect BY ETHERNET (Cat 5 unshieled twisted pair) cable your computer to the one of the slots to the router. We'll go wireless later. Make sure that you are now getting internet service through the router while connected to it with the Ethernet cable. Make sure that you are talking to the router through its web interface. Again, look at your internet settings (find the gateway IP address), and enter that IP address into your browser. You will be challenged for authentication: use the router's default authentication (usually the user name is "admin" and the password is also "admin" or maybe a number sequence like "123456", I don't have your super G model number) and then enter the Interface. Perhaps you need to make special settings for the type of broadband: VCI and VCP values and protocol for the WAN side. You might need to learn these from Comcast's support (by phone or by web site).

Alternatively, rather than us the browser interface to your router, Netgear may provide a CD install disk which contains an application you run to directly manage your router device. It will configure it and also set it up for wireless (see next step).

When you see web pages (such as Google, Yahoo, even Comcast's) through your router, then you are ready to configure the wireless part.

4. While still connected to the router's web page interface in admin user mode, look for the wireless part. You need to set an SSID (don't use the default...create a name you can recognize). This SSID is broadcast to the wireless and you will identify it when opening your computer's wireless adapter. Set an authentication mode as well, so that only you and other can connect to your wireless and no one else (prevents unsecured connections, and turning your wireless into an open "hotspot"). Use WPA or WPA2 (not WEP) if you have it, and you will be given or asked to create a key which is probably a series of numbers and the letters A through F (a long hexadecimal number). Write down the authenticatin type (WPA or WPA2 with AES or TKIP and the key value) and then write this information in for the wireless setup of all computers wishing to connect to the router. You can create this also if Netgear provides an interface (by an CD install disk) for your computer: it may tell you to insert a USB drive to copy information that you would then use to configure all computers that will use the wireless, since it will setup a network configuration that includes the authentication key.

For specific information about how to configure the wireless adapter for router connection, you would need to give the OS you are using (WinXP? Win Vista? MacOS? Linux?)


In future posts, or messages to me, please as a rule provide as much information as possible about ALL devices, namely make AND model/product numbers, since often the experts can check online to see how you can interface with these and configure them.

Only real trouble shooting I can suggest is power cycle the modem and router. If you have the Comcast Digital Voice modem make sure you push the reset button on the back as there is a battery in the unit and unplugging won't do anything.

Hook up wireless interenet


Did you by any chance give you router the mac address on the wireless card? Do you have the comcast version of a netgear wireless router? Any wireless router will do also. Does not have to be netgear or from comcast. You can get online by the network cable right?. Where else are you trying to connect to wirelessly?
