    OK.

    You should be plugged into the NIC card on the back of the desktop, and the back of the router (unless the desktop is trying to connect wireless, which you indicate not.).
    The other end should be connected to the back of the router.

    Are you connected to the internet wireless at the same time?

Hey. I want to use my Netgear WNR1000 as an extra accespoint for better range, is it possible?


Step 1: Make sure your old router is working. Step 1a: Connect the Broadband modem to your OLD_ROUTER's Internet (WAN) port. Then connect the computer to one of the four available ports on your router through an Ethernet cable.
Step 1b: Make sure that the Internet connection is working on your computer and on your wireless devices.
Step 2: Configure your new router
Most routers have an IP address of 192.168.1.1 so before you connect them, you need to ensure that they have been assigned two different IP addresses.
Step 2a: Shut down your OLD_ROUTER and the modem. Also unplug the Ethernet cable from the computer.
Step 2b. Plug the Ethernet cable into any of the numbered ports of NEW_ROUTER and connect the other end to your computer. Switch on the NEW_ROUTER.
Step 2c. Access the web dashboard of NEW_ROUTER (192.168.1.1) and change the local IP address to something like 192.168.2.1 so that there's no conflict with the old router. Save the changes.
Step 2d. Test the SSID name of the new router and make sure it's different from the old router. Also make sure that SSID broadcast is turned on. Save the changes.
Step 3: Connect the two routers
Step 3a. Connect the modem to the Internet Port of the OLD_ROUTER.
Step 3b. Connect one of the number ports of OLD_ROUTER to your computer.
Step 3c. Connect another free port on the OLD_ROUTER to the Internet Port of your NEW_ROUTER using an Ethernet or LAN cable.

How do i connect my netgear rangemax wireless router


You should have a manual/setup guide.
BUT, the basics of setting a wireless router are.

Connect an ethernet cable from your MODEM to the WAN port on the rear of the ROUTER.
Connect an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports (usually 4) to your computer.
You now log on to your router via your web browser, set your wireless security (using WPA2) choose your password.
Save and exit from the router setup, disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer to the router and try and connect wirelessly
Your support page is here, choose which version of the router you have and download your manual

How do you hook up your netgear wireless router to your clear wire modem?


Hi Leon,

have alook at Clearwire's webpage (here), where they describe different setups for your router.
I personally would always prefer to connect the modem to the router via a cable. The cable you will need is an Ethernet (CAT5) cable and the connectors at the end look like this (compared to a phone cable:

e6394fa.jpg

You will connect the output of your modem with the WAN port of your router. This port is usually separated form the 4 other LAN ports, which connect to your computers, printers, etc.
(You didn't specify which router model you have, so I can't give you more details, but it should be very obvious, when you look at the back of your router.)

For the initial setup of your router, you should use a second Ethernet cable connected to one of the LAN ports of the router and to the Ethernet port of your computer.

If you need help with the wireless setup of your router, you have to look either in your manual of give me the details of your router (like the model and version, i.e. Netgear WGR614) and I'm happy to assist you.

Netgear WGT624 router won't connect to the internet


I am in the UK and have found through experience the Netgear's seem to work perfect on a BT line (equivalent of AT & T)
but not on the cable.

I would suggest purchasing a Linksys by Cisco WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router as these seem to install in minutes,
saves me hours of wasted time when setting up wireless networks.
