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.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.

Note: Name (11N SSID) is for wireless N computers running at 5GHz and the Name (11G SSID) is for wireless G computers running 2.4GHz. Kindly make sure that (11N SSID) and (11G SSID) names are different.

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.

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.

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

However, if this does not resolve the issue we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Who is your internet service provider? Is it Cable or DSL connection?
2. How many wired and wireless computers are connected to the router?

What does the LAN do on the modem


There are two halves to a router. The internet (WAN) side a local network (LAN) side.

The term WAN means Wide Area Network and generally refers to the internet.

The term LAN means Local Area Network. That would be for the computers that are in your office or home.

The LAN connects your computer to your printers or to other computers.

I hope that answers your question!

Hi there,

If this is the case, the setup wizard detected an IP conflict between the router and the modem. It means that the modems IP address is in the same range as you router so it has to be changed. If the IP address of your router was changed to 10.0.0.1 , you should be able to connect to the internet. Try accessing the routers setup page by opening a browser and type 10.0.0.1 at the address bar. It will ask you for a username or password. Type admin for the username and password for password (this is the default settings). If it does not work try to remember if you already have changed the username or password. Once you are in, enable the mac clone option. Check if it works.

Acer one and netgear WNDR3300 router


Make certain tha you have your firewall setting allowing the wireless card to connect. When you type your password in make certain that your caps lock is not turn on. Finally if your computer can only run wireless B, you have to tell your to broad wireless B and G, or do a protection mode, where older wireless device will connect.
