Cant connect with the modem after cell phone mishap
We have a Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO router. It was working fine. Today we got a new cell phone and tried to set up its internet and it changed our router settings. Now we can't get into the router page to change the settings back and we have no idea how to do it on the phone. We reset the modem and even tried reinstalling it no luck. Help!!

connect your computer to netgear modem alone and check for the ip address in the computer (make sure that you have selected "assign ip automatically" in computer)... to open command prompt type "cmd" and hit enter in run box... then you can check ip address by typing "ipconfig" in command prompt... make a note of IP adress or ipV4 address found under the heading "ethernet adapter local area connection" it might be 192.168.X.X now connect only the belkinrouter and check for the ip address using the same steps above... it might be 192.168.2.X make a note of that... now compare both the ip addresses if they both have the same value in first three places...that is 192.168.2.... or something like 192.168.1.... or 192.168.0.... then you are facing with double NAT issue...
all that you need to do for that is to change the ip address of belkin router... if it is 192.168.2.1 change into something like 192.168.15.1...the issue will get resolved....if not you can reset the belkin router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds using a toothpick when the power is turned on...
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy.

it could be the cable. Alternatively,I would suggest to check on the belkin' site if there are any updated firmwares for this router. If yes, try updating the firmware. that might help. If nohting else does,you might have a broken router.
You need to find out what settings need to be changed in the router to communicate to the new modem. Etisalat should have some type of instructions on how to configure it...Does the IP address get obtained automatically or is it manually configured. Does the modem require authentication..like a password. Did they replace the modem or just upgrade the system? You may just ahve to reset the modem and router to get reconnection. Most routers use the IP address of 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to get to the router settings control panel. Just enter one of these addresses on internet explorer and a screen should ask for a password. The default password is usually ADMIN but consult the routers manual for instructions. Once you are in the router control manual you can configure the router to work with the new system.
you might need to disconnect your modem for 30 secs then reconnect it . i have just reset my router and then the pc would show a connection but it only went to the router not through to the web.disconnect your modem reconnect then do a reconnect on the pc
