With the websites that you are encountering errors on, try accessing them when your computer is directly wired to the modem. If they then work, call Linksys to have them troubleshoot your problem further.

I have comcast for internet, will the NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit Router with USB WNR3500L work for comcast?


Of course it will. I have comcast cable internet but don't forget, you will need a cable modem to access cable internet and then you can use any router for networking including WNR3500L.

Since installing a new router, it will not let us access msn yahoo, or youtube, it knocks us off within seconds, it is exactly the same router as before just a newer one, on the old one we had no problems...


It sounds like you have more than one issue going on. One possible issue with the yahoo and msn messenger could be that you have port/app filtering enabled. In order to fix this, you must go onto your router's configuration (the webpage for its settings), and go check the Port/Application & Gaming filter area to see if any ports are not permitted (since I don't know exactly what router you have, I can't tell you exactly what to go to, but I can give you a general idea of what to look for). If that is the case, simply disable the port filters, and save your settings. If that doesn't fix the problem, then make sure that use don't have parental controls, or Access policies enabled that deny you from using those applications. The youtube problem sounds like a different problem all together. It could be anything from a bad internet connection, to slow internet, to a setting on your browser preventing it from working. My suggestion for that would be to try to access other websites using your same web browser, and then try to access youtube from a different web browser. If you can access youtube from another web browser, but can access the other pages from the first web browser, your problem may be in the browser with that specific page. On the other hand, if you can access youtube, and cannot access any webpage on the first browser, there probably a problem with that browser in general. If you cannot access youtube with either, but can access other websites, then its probably not you browser.
If you still have a problem after following these steps, I would recommend contacting your ISP, or having someone come and look at your network in person.

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.

Connecting DLink thru Comcast Cable Modem and Vonage box


first you see the in the internt explorer in that tools in that is give internet option in that connection>lan settings> if the proxey server is ther then remove it if not ther then go it. i think you get it.

second think is that in your dlink router reconfigure the router properly and give the isp details correct and one more thing is check the dns value.

Current dlink basic want to use dling DI 514


If you want to use your former router, you just have to connect the previous router in between your modem and computer. Try turning off all the devices (modem, router and computer) for 2 minutes. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to be stable then turn on the router. When the router lights are okay that is the time that you can turn on the computer and check the internet connection.

If the Internet connection still has not come back, you will have to reconfigure it for Comcast connection. You can try using the setup CD or access the setup wizard using 192.168.0.1. User name is admin and leave the password empty then run the wizard.

Local access only


hmmm... with those settings, the Vista machine SHOULD be working...

when you open internet explorer on the vista machine, can you go to tools, internet options, and then the connections tab?

along the bottom there should be an option for lan settings. click on that, and then make certain that 'automatically detect settings' is checked, and that everything else is blank.

then restart internet explorer.

what sort of error message do you get now, if you try to go to, say, www.cnn.com?
