Im using an adsl modem which came with the package atm how ever I want to create a wireless connection, to do that first i need to get this junk of a router to connect to the net which it doesnt.. As its EOL which doesn't help much ppl at Netgear just shrugged me off. have called tiscali, who are a bunch of useless chickens when it came to giving out specific ports, so that i could use port fowarding. Can anyone tell me all the settings I need to connect? if it supported PPPoA it wouldnt have been an issue connecting to the net,
The settings used are: VPI 0 VCI 38 MD5 Chap PPPoA VC MUX
Usually the ip address of the router is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. If you plug it in then go to start then run. If you type in there cmd and press enter on your keyboard it take you to a dos page (black backround with white text) In there type ipconfig and then press enter on your keyboard. The default gateway is the address of your router. If you type that ip address into your address bar when you open your browser it will take you straight to the router page. There you can confgure it. Let me know how it works out.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.
Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device
Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.
Connect using Lan Cable be sure to enable java on your Browser. Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser. SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP). If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here. When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc. You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later. Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected. Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
if you are not able to connect through your main comp using wireless router...then first of all check the ipaddress of computer by..
start>run>type cmd>then type ipconfig in command prompt screen.check whether you get the ip address as 192.168...........and default gateway as 192.168........
if anything else reinstall nic card on your comp
