Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.
b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
c. Click on the Advanced tab.
d. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
e. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network. Please select your network and click on Connect. It will ask you for the network key.

Cannot connect to internet through netgear n300 wireless router


They are pretty straight forward. Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port. Then connect pc to any other port. Done!


Try resetting it by holding the reset in till it cycles through. This will clear all custom setting and try again.


I normally don't suggest firmware upgrades, but try updating.

192.168.0.1 Defual login if you cleared custom is User: admin Password: admin

Other than that the unit is damaged / defective.

MAke sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Can you hook up the ps 3 to the internet router to get online with out using a computer


do you have a wireless router?

depends on how your internet is set up

but if your internet is set up like this

internet plug on wall>>>wireless router>>>>main computer

then you can connect to the wireless router without having the computer to be on

if you can use the wireless internet using a laptop then i dont see why it wount work for the ps3

if you dont have a wirekless router and your internet router has several eithernet ports then you can run a either net cable from the router to the ps3

Hook up router and can't access internet from wired computer.


Sometimes the modem-computer-router not "sync" together.
Try this.
1-hook the computer to modem. Internet yes? good.
2-hook the computer to router and check you IP. If it like 192.168.1.2,
the router's DHCP is working.
3-reset router to default setting.
turn off all and turn on modem, router, computer.
keep me posted.

Cannot complete downloads


when you say that everything works when the router is NOT hooked up to the PC, does that mean that you have the DSL modem connected directly to the computer?

then, when you hook up the router, you're connecting it BETWEEN the DSL modem and your computer?

You probably need to log in to your router and set it up to connect through the DSL modem to the internet: it may not do it automatically.

is this computer running windows XP?

if so, go to control panel, then network connections.

if you double click on the local area connection, and go to the support tab, it should list something like this:

Address type: assigned by DHCP
IP address: 10.0.1.100
Default gateway: 10.0.1.1

Try opening internet explorer, and typing in the numbers it lists for default gateway.  hopefully, that will bring up the configuration screen for your router.
