Hi, First of All I would like to inform you about the Ideal Broad band Setup. An ideal BB Setup should be in the Following Way :-
Master socket (main telephone socket) << Filter << Router << Computer.
There should not be any other things connected in between. you can connect it to the secondary or extension socket as well but it depends. sometime you may face problem with it.
As you told that you have a Hub connected to the Router If there are multiple Ethernet ports on Router there is no use of it at all but if there is only 1 port then you can connect Hub after router.
Try this and I m sure you will not face any difficulties in future.
One more Advice for you If you face any Difficulty like yesterday Internet was working fine but today its not or similar ..... Just do this ........... Switch OFF your Router. wait for 40 sec. Switch ON your Router n Wait till you get All the lights Solid Green on the Router (not Flashing apart from Ethernet Light) Try Connecting to Internet in most of the cases it Works :)

When i turn on the power to my router, all of the lights turn on and freeze


Try to reboot your router...normally reboot are two types...

In Netgear router, when you change the router configuration, it does a "soft reboot", which is related to the operating system reboot.
And a "hard reboot" is usually done by removing power from the router and rebooting it after powering it off for several seconds.

->open your browser and login your router page using username and password..
->Click the Diagnostics option which is under the Maintenance on the left hand side of your Netgear setting page.
->Then click the Reboot button and it will automatically reboot your router.

***Reboot process can vary depending on different Netgear wireless router models.

I can not get by daughters compute to hook up to my netgear wireless router. My other computers had no problem in getting connected. We have tried everything and can not get it to take the router


Hello
Have you tried going to control panel,network and sharing center.

Once there, make sure all pcs are on the same network,either homgroup or public.

Your daughters needs to be on the same network as the others.Also be sure the firewall is not blocking any connections.

You may also want to reboot the router do this by...
1 shut down all pcs
2 Unplug all cables from router including power.
3 Let router set for a min then plug all cables back in and power up
4 Once you get stedy lights on router restart pcs.

Have you checked to see if your wireless router has the latest firmware updates from NetGear? If not, go to netgear.com to get the latest updates. This can also be accomplished in the router remotely.

Drops the internet connection and has to be rebooted at least once a day.


Try to reduce the MTU of the router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492, for Cable connection size is 1400 or 1463. You can do it on the router's admin page http://192.168.1.1

Netgear Wireless Router Problems


Use the process of elmination, disconnect Vontage, does the problem go away? If no then look at the modem (cable or dsl).
Hint! If you have a cable modem, make sure all cable connections are tight from the outside of the house, to every TV, and from the wall to the cable modem. Use plyers to tighten all of them.

1.Open a browser and then go to http://192.168.1.1
2. Username admin and password is password
3. You should be able to access the router's utility page then and get the wireless settings of the router.

Once you get the wireless settings of the router, just connect to the name(SSID) you set up and then connect to it.
