Your modem needs to be rebooted in order for your router to pull an IP from the modem. To do this, look for a little hole in the back of your modem and use a pen to push the button. Wait for the reboot to finish and then try again in about 20 seconds.

SOURCE: wireless routers

Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.

SOURCE: How do I set up a wireless connection to my laptop

This is pretty straight forward because the Netgear, provided it is a wireless model, has its wireless transmitter on by default.  So, you just need to login to the router (via any web browser--Firefox, IE, Safari, etc) and enter "192.168.1.1" (without the quotes) and hit return/enter.  In the user name enter "admin" and "password" for the password (unless it was set to something else by your dad when he first bought it).  In the Netgear router interface, select wireless and make sure that it is turned ON and it will say what the SSID is (you can change it if you like to any word or words without spaces).  The SSID is the name of the network that you choose to login with when you connect to the wireless.
Next, you need to purchase a Wireless PCI card.  If it is a PC then the choices are many, but this is economical and easy to install.  Just go here:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315082
If he needs a wireless router as well, this one is economical and fast: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833180054

All in all, it will be about $60 for the set, much cheaper than the chain stores would charge and this is an N standard network NOT a G, so it is as fast as they come.
As for Macs, the same thing applies for the wireless routers and the Macs usually come with built in wireless cards.  
Use the setup software that comes with the router to set things up and you should be all set.  Enable a WEP or WPA security password for the network if possible to keep out unwanted riff-raff. Sincerely, Jeff LazCom.com

SOURCE: i have an arris tm602gct and cannot connect thru my netgear

Can you connect if you are directly wired into the router?

You may want to try using a ball point pen and pressing the reset button on the back of the arris. Let it reboot and try again.

Some netgear routers come with the wireless disabled out of the box, so you need to be hard wired when you run the CD or if you try to connect through your browser 192.168.1.1

Make sure that you have the ethernet cord from your modem plugged into the WAN/Internet port on your router. Then unplug the power cord from your cable modem and plug it right back in. After the modem fully comes back online, unplug the power cord on the wireless router and plug it back in. wait 30 - 60 sec and then try and connect.

Most cable companies only allow one active"CPE" at a time for internet access. All this means is when you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always reboot the cable modem to allow access.


Hope this helps. Let me know if it does not work.

Please rate.

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

Hg532 modem router


You can only set it up using WPA protocol over the network.

Otherwise you have to use WEP and login wirelessly to set it up.

Your connection is limited


What router and where is it that you are connecting the Extender to? An extender is not a router. You need a router to extend the wifi signal from.

I can not gem=t my WN2500RP to connect to my Netgear Router


To properly set up the WN3000RP you first have to push the WPS or Push 'N' Connect button on the router-WN2500RP(on the back of the router between the reset and the wired connection slots) and then the Push 'N' Connect button on the extender. It should negotiate and establish a connection between them.

How do I connect my netgear router to my desktop internet to use with my laptop. Followed instructions but when cable is disconnect from my laptop I can't connect to the internet


First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.
