Question about Motorola Computers & Internet
My motorola modem was furnished by ATT with my internet. I bought a netgear router for wireless connection to work a laptop that I just bought. When the router is connected, the internet connection is lost after my desktop goes to sleep. I then have to unplug the modem, wait, replug it in in order to get internet. When I disconnect the router I have no problem. Is this router not compatible with the modem - or is there a command on the desktop that needs to be changed. The style number of the modem is MSTATEA.

Contact Netgear! Their tech. support number should be in the documentation that came with your router.

Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.

the motorola modem that att is using uses 192.168.1.x subnet. log onto your router and change it to 192.168.b.x where b is any number between 2 and 254 (just not 1). You should also log onto the modem and change the setting that allows it to share the external ip address with the router. You will need to do this if you plan on accessing your network from the internet.
