Make sure your cable is fully inserted into both the modem the router. also, ensure that you connect your modem to the router, make sure it's in the "internet" or WAN port (same thing, different names) and not into one of the PC slots (normally numbered 1,2,3, etc) and vice versa for connecting your PC to the router.

This is all assuming of course that you're connecting to a router / switch of some sort. if not (if you're trying to connect 1 PC to another) then you need what's called a crossover cable.

also, when you plug in, do you see a "link light" (usually indicated by a green LED either on the front of your router or on your NIC if a good connection is established (most likely you won't be getting this if you're not communicating, but if you are then knowing that definately helps to narrow down the possible problems). If you don't have a link and you have an extra cable handy, try using that one (mechanical failure is a fairly common problem, even in brand new components)

If you're still not fixxed and have any more information about what you are trying to do / what you have done, please do post that information.

How do you know it is sending? Connection stats in Windows? Are you plugging into a netgear router? Is the router connected to any other PCs and what type of modem do you have (connected to the router, I assume)?

Can i connect a netgear JFS524 directly to acable modem


Yes for sure you can do that.As the connector is RJ45.The only think is that for Thomson you need a cross-wired cable to connect to the netgear JFS524. If netgear do have Uplink port then you can use normal or straight through cable.For more infor Cross-wired cable are use to connect between network devices.

No internet access netgear router


It may be the device you are trying to connect. shut down everything, unplug , remove batteries, plug in the ISP model, allow the self test, plug in the wireless device, allow it to self test, plug in, reboot the device, laptop, desktop, ipad, phone, whatever. You say you can connect using a Ethernet Cable? Just no connection wirelessly?

First connect the ethernet cord from your modem directly to the ethernet connector on your computer to enable direct access the internet. Click on the link below to download the software. After installing the software, connect your Netgear wireless device and let Windows install it. Follow the prompts to have Windows look for the software for your hardware. You should then be able to use the Netgear wireless device.

I have a printer attached via USB to a wi-fi connected desktop in a WGR614g network which supports an additional ethernet-connected desktop and two wi-fi laptops. Can I make the printer wi-fi accessible...


Do a search engine hunt for a "WIRELESS PRINT SERVER" and you'll bring up a Netgear WGPS606 for about $60-80 or a Linksys for $36-150 (the same one :-)).

The Netgear has 2 USB A ports and 4 ethernet ports. You plug in your printer, activate the wireless part to receive a signal and you have a networked USB printer.

I assume the Linksys works exactly the same way, except it may not have the additonal 4-port ethernet switch.

Reconnect the computers as you had setup originally when everything worked.

Unplug the modem and the router. Wait about 30 secs.

Plug the modem in. Wait about 30 secs.

Plug the router in.

See if you can gain access to the internet. If not, do Start|Run|Cmd

At the window, type ipconfig, and reply back what it says.

If it works, please let me know as well, and don't forget to rate my answer.

Netgear connection to apple air book


Hi claire,

You will probably need to be more specific here. Are you having trouble getting an Internet connection via plugging your ethernet cable directly into the router, or with wireless?

Does your Netgear router have wireless security enabled? A classic issue with some Apple wireless products is that the Apple notebooks sometimes require a 128-bit WEP key (as opposed to the 64-bit you may be using). Please reply with more detailed information as far as what problems you're experiencing.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
