Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My internet seems to drop from one of my sites in the house. They are all wired from a netgear fvs318 router which gets the cable from a comcast modem. The office seems to be the worst location for dropping the signal. It seems certain sites cause it to drop the signal. Since replacing my powermac in my office with a new imac, the problem is worse. Even after powering down everything, unplugging power, resetting the modem and router, the problem persists. The lights on the router are lit although you can't get on the internet. Is this a problem with the router and will a wireless system be better?

Where do i find UPnP on the the fvs318 netgear prosafe VPN firewall router, i cant find it on the main configuration menu


The netgear prosafe VPN router is a high-end component ment for business and corporate use and does not support UPnP

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows programs accessing your router (limewire, utorrent, etc...) to auto configure the security settings on your router which would be harmful to a business/corp. network.

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.

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.

New computer, router dropping sites?


Log on to the router and make sure that these sites haven't been placed in a block list for whatever reason.

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.
