Home Network Problem with Netgear MR814 and Netgear FS105

I have a home network setup as follows:

The whole house is wired with Cat5 into all the rooms.

Upstairs:
- DSL into home
- DSL Modem connected to Netgear MR814 router
- Windows Vista computer connected via Ethernet to router
- Router also has wireless enabled
- Router is connected through wall (to patch panel downstairs)
- Router is setup with DHCP enabled
- Router also has UPnP enabled

Downstairs:
- Patch panel for all the wired rooms
- Router connected from patch panel to Netgear FS105 switch
- Computer 2 (Windows 2000) connected through wall to patch panel, from patch panel to Netgear FS105 switch
- ReplayTV connected through wall to patch panel, from patch panel to Netgear FS105 switch
- Xbox connected through wall to patch panel, from patch panel to Netgear FS105 switch

Another computer (WinXP) connected via wireless to router.

Problem:
- All computers have joined the network and are working fine.
- The ReplayTV and Xbox can't seem to join the network and get their IP information

    Both are set for DHCP, I tried using static routes and that didn't work either.



    The Xbox works when connected directly to the router. Wiring and cables are good, so I suspect the switch is somehow causing the problem, but don't understand why.

Is your ReplayTV and Xbox configured to use DHCP? If not, you may need to configure static IP addresses for each of them.

How to network two computers and one printer trough a netgear FS105 switch?


Connect your two computers to netgear swtich with Ethenret lan cable into LAN port.
Then set ip address in both computer in network adapter property same subnet mask and gateway ip is different .
Means if you give ip 192.168.1.10 to 1 computer you can give ip 192.168.1.11 to another computer.
Then both computer are in network.
Then if your printer is network printer then you can connect your printer with lan cable to switch then set ip ion printer same way.
But if you haven;t network printer then you can connect printer into 1 computer then share your printer in contol panel->printer and faxes if you use windows then right click on printer icn then click on share so you can use it in network.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Need to know what i need to connect my prewired home (with cat5 cable running from box in garage to jacks in 4 rooms) to the internet. currently just have cable modem in office.


You would need a 4 - 8 port router... with a wire going to each Jack... and these would plug into the Router ports, The router plugs into the Modem. You have to put the Ethernet plugs on each end of the Cat5 cable. Then you setup your network. But if you have a wireless router you simply need each PC WiFi enabled, IE: A wireless card in each PC, that way you do NOT need Cat5. Then each PC, simply connects to the Router/Modem.

I have a netgear MR814 and i am wondering if you can tell me how to connect it with my home system and my Mac OSX laptop?


For you to be able to connect to your router wirelessly, the first thing that you should know is the wireless settings on your router. You should know the ssid and if wireless security is enabled. To access the router setup wizard go to http://routerlogin.com admin is the username and password is the password. Click the wireless settings tab and there you will see the wireless settings. Once you know those settings you can check the available network that your laptop is seeing and then connect to your network.

How to run cat5 for phone wire


You could, but common practice is to make all the runs "home runs". Pick a closet or basement or some centrally located place and run all the cables to that spot. Then you can use a $10 block from Blowes Home Dumpo Maynards and create a distribution point.

Netgear FS105 Switch is not fowarding ports properly.


Does your modem have a built in router or do you have a router in your network. The switch needs no changes that's all it is a switch it will allow computers to talk and share fine, if you want to use it for internet you will need to connect it to a router first or use one of your computers as the router and let it share the connection. since you disabled DHCP on your router I am assuming you have a router. all you need is to connect the switch to the router, the connect the computers to the switch and all should work.
