Hi Patricia,
here's what to do:
1. Turn off all computers, routers, wifi, and modem.
2. turn on your main router... probably your wireless... and let it boot.
3. with only the modem connected to the router, turn the modem on and let it boot..
4. After that, turn on the other computers and printers and the router should give all equipment the appropriate addresses..
you should be able to share your internet w/o getting dropped..

let me know if you have success!

Connecting hp712c to hp g7 notebook via netgear wnr 2000?


To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have a Netgear WNR 2000 router for my home network. I am trying to connect an Epson NX420 printer. Instruction state to enter MAC address to router. I have the MAC address, but do not know how to enter...


I am not too familiar with NetGear routers, but all linksys routers have mac address filters, this allows the router to only accept connections from previously stated mac addresses. I never had to do such a thing for my wireless printer, but this could be the problem. Usually wireless printers just ask for a security code (WEP/etc.) and connect on their own. Sorry i cant be anymore direct.

Hello, i have a wireless router Netgear WNR 1000


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

Netgear wireless wgr614 is configured and the ports wired connected and is working ok while wireless portion the laptop running vista says connection is limited and unable to browse


If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
