I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

A Netgear wireless router attaches multiple devices to your Internet connection, either by ethernet cable or wirelessly.
If you can't connect to the Internet, the problem can be anywhere along the chain of devices and technologies that connect your computer to the Internet.
Knowing how to troubleshoot your Netgear or other wireless router is an essential part of determining where the problem is and fixing it.

Click your "Start" button, and choose "Run."
Type "cmd" in the text box (without quotation marks), and click "OK."
A command prompt will open. Type the following: ipconfig /all. Press your "Enter" key.
A list of numbers and other networking configuration information will display.
Find your network adapter in this list of headers.
If you use your computer wirelessly in many different places, you may have to scroll through a lot of different options to find your adapter.
If you connect to the Internet using a cable, look for a header that begins with "Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection."
If you connect wirelessly, look for a header that begins with "Ethernet adapter Wireless Connection."
You will usually only see an IP address displayed under one header in either category.

Record your IP address and default gateway on a piece of paper or in a text file.
If your IP address is 0.0.0.0 or begins with 169.254, unplug your Netgear router from its power source.
Unplug your cable or DSL modem as well.
Be sure to unplug both devices; turning them off with a power switch may not have the same effect.
Wait 20 seconds before plugging the modem in again.
Wait for the lights on the modem to light up.
Plug in your Netgear wireless router again.
Wait for two minutes. Use "ipconfig /all" again.
You should have a different IP address now.

Ping your default gateway.
At the command prompt, type "ping 192.168.1.1" (substituting your default gateway address for 192.168.1.1).
You should receive four responses, all of which will begin with either "Reply from" or "Request timed out."
If you receive "Request timed out," unplug your Netgear wireless router from the power source for 20 seconds, and plug it in again.
Wait two minutes before using "ping" again.
If you receive "Reply from" responses, check to see if your Internet connection is working again.
Open a Web browser. In the address bar, type "http://192.168.1.1" (substituting your default gateway address for 192.168.1.1).
Press "Enter." If you have password-protected your Netgear router, you will be prompted for a username and password.
The default username for a Netgear router is "admin."
When you have successfully entered the username and password, your Web browser will show you the configuration page for your Netgear wireless router.

If your Web browser never loads a Web page or prompts for a username and password, you're not communicating with your Netgear router.
Double-check the address you typed into your address bar.
If you've typed it correctly and your connection is wireless, either your wireless card has a problem or your Netgear router is not correctly sending a wireless signal.
Make sure your wireless card is enabled (using Windows' built-in Network Connections applet or the third-party software that came with your wireless card).
Make sure your connection settings (SSID, security type, and key or passphrase) are correct for your network.

Look at the lights on your Netgear wireless router.
The wireless indicator light should be green.
If it's orange or not on at all, your router is not sending a wireless signal.

Make sure all the settings on your Netgear configuration page are correct.
Most Internet providers use a dynamic IP address and DNS server addresses.
Some Internet providers require a login, and some do not.
To be sure, refer to the configuration information your Internet provider gave you when your Internet access was installed, or call your Internet provider's technical support number.
Click on "Wireless Settings" on the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the page.
If you were not able to reach the configuration page wirelessly and had to connect to your Netgear router with an ethernet cable, make sure these settings are still as you defined them when setting up your network.
If not, either change the settings to suit you, or change the configuration of your wireless card to match these settings.
Be sure to click the "Apply" button if you make any changes.

Click "Router Status" on the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the page.
Under "Internet Port," check your IP address.
If the address begins with 169.254, you're not communicating with your cable or DSL modem. Unplug your cable or DSL modem from its power source for 20 seconds, and plug it back in. Wait two minutes, and refresh this page.

If your IP address still begins with 169.254, there is a problem either with the cable connecting your Netgear wireless router to your cable or DSL modem, or with the modem itself.
If your IP address is 0.0.0.0, there is a problem with your Internet connection, and you should call your Internet provider's technical support.

Record all your configuration information before trying to reset your Netgear wireless router to the factory defaults.
Resetting may fix your problem, but it will wipe out all your configuration information, and you will have to reconfigure your Netgear router from scratch afterward.
To reset most Netgear routers, use the tip of a pen or an unbent paperclip to press and hold the reset button on the back of the router until the test light blinks.
Release the button, and wait two or three minutes.
Connect to the router's configuration page in a Web browser.
Log in with the default username and password, and configure your router.
You may have to connect to the router with an ethernet cable to perform this initial configuration.

The CD is not available for installation is it necessary? I have all of the cable if the Yellow cable connects to the cable router what does the white cable on the wireless router connect to. Thank...


If the cables supplied have RJ45 connectors then they are used for connecting and configuring the wireless settings in Netgear router and to connect the Netgear to the DSL modem foe Internet access.
Most likely the color of the cables is not important.
To configure the wireless settings, connect a cable from one of the LAN ports (not the WAN/Internet port) to the LAN port on your computer. You may remove this cable after configuring the wireless settings if you want to connect to the Netgear by wireless only. You need to connect other computers to the Netgear's LAN port with a cable if they do not have wireless cards installed in these computers.

The other LAN cable is used to connect the Netgear WAN/Internet port to the DSL modem so you computers can connect to the Internet via the Netgear router.

Follow these instructions to configure the Netgear router.

There is a MANUEL way to get the router working. Find somebody that would know the login IP Address of the router (could be 192.168.1.1) and then you can set it up from within your Internet browser. Quite a tricky router to set up though but it can be done

Hi,

Initially, what would be needed is for you to have an active Internet account from an ISP. Thereafter, said ISP will provide you with a modem of a connection method which then should be connected to your Netgear wireless-G router. Soon as all configurations have been made by your ISP, it is a matter of wirelessly linking your Gateway M-6322 to the Netgear to access the Internet.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Futher query about your solution ....


You will need a wireless router. People have different preferences towards these units I prefer netgear. They are cheap, reliable nary a problem.

You connect the broad band modem to the uplink or internet slot.
But first, connect your pc or laptop directly into 1 of the 4 ports on the router before connecting the router to the internet.

open your browser, IE/Mozilla, whatever you are using. if the router log in screen does not appear (which it should by default)
type in the ip address of the router where normally you would type in the web address (www.geeks.com) netgear uses 192.168.15.1, username Administrator, password is password.

from here you can plug in the uplink to the modem and let the configuration utility configure your internet settings.

A unit like this is what I have, link, however the router is what you need for your home wireless. I live in a small town in upstate NY and where I am there are 5 homes nearby I can connect to wirelessly. I didn't have to purchase my own router.

I purchased mine for 29.95 USD last year.

Archos 605 wifi


Hi, Richard. Although the 605 is internet capable, you have to buy, download and install a browser plugin in order for it to actually connect. Have you done that yet? If not, here is the link:
