Re: how to set up for internet use with muliple pc's
I assume you router came with a configuration manual or CD. Its very easy. Once by following the instructions, go into the router like: http://192.168.x.x (whatever IP is suggested by the manufacturer) and make sure the internet connection type. Mostly the ISP's use 'Dynamic IP' (if you scroll other ones will be like PPPoE, PPTP etc). Select Dynamic IP and restart your router and you will see after few seconds that your router has started to offer IP's to the internal Lan Pool. connect your ethernet cables from the computers to the router (behind the router you will find the ports to connect them)
In your Network settings in the router assign an internal IP to the router like '192.168.x.x' subnet mask 255.255.255.0, enable DHCP server and assign the internal LAN ip pool like 192.168.x.20 to 192.168.x.100 and you are all set.
Security settings Always make sure your router (if in case its wireless router as well) assign and use an authentic security feature like 'WPA, PSK or WPA2, PSK' you could also use WEP (but WEP its getting old) I recommend WPA higly for wireless clients. If you have NONE wireless connections to offer than do not worry about it.
simply put the CD inside your system connect it with router and it will guide you through for configuring it.

Some cable modems look for the MAC address of the computer until reset. You can either enter the MAC address from the PC into the MAC spoofing setting on the router OR disconnect and unplug the cable modem for 24 hours and start over. First, plug in the cable modem and connect the cable. 2nd, plug the router cable into the modem and router and plug in the router's power supply. Then connect the computer and it should work fine.
The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.
1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer. 2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port. 3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.
4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider 5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes. 6. Now power on your PC.
Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.
Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.
If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

router for Cable Internet To
configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN
(INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option
Step 1 Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your
router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to
any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not
USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to
Step 2 Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in
its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.0.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the
Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to
your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default
is `admin' for both.
Step 3 After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet
Connection to 'Dynamic IP (DHCP)' option.
- Select the MAC Cloning option. Click on Clone MAC Address button. Do this
from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected to the last
time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save
settings and reboot the router. Reboot your cable modem as well.
- Log in to the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting
on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET)
appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g.
192.168.0.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to
something different, e.g. 192.168.88.x. You can do this on your router under
Setup > LAN Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will
only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.
- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing
the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet
connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.
Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.
Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW. Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem. Turn on PC It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.
To get my connection to work, I had to configure my Netopia DSL modem for Bridged Mode and let my router take care of the routing and address assignment. I would also try to get a working connection before configuring security. You can always do that later. You have the order of powering up you equipment correct. Read this link. It works for me.
Ok in this case the problem is more than likely a generic one for all modems. All modems like to bind themselves to whatever device you have initially plugged in when you plug in the power cable for the modem. My guess is you had the pc hooked up directly to the modem and then plugged in the poewr cable to the modem.
To fix this you need to unplug the router and modem cables for 2 minutes. Plug in the modem with it being hooked up to nothing but the wall [Power Cable and Internet Cords hooked up only; no pc yet]
Your router is probably not need to be bridged so there should be a small hole somewhere on the router normally on the back or bottom saying reset. Press and hold that button with the router only plugged into the power no internet or pc [Although it doesnt matter if the pc is hooked up to the router] for at least 10 seconds. This will cause the router to reset to the factory default settings undoing the bridge. After this time the modem should say it has internet and whatever else except a activity light and similar things.
What you want to do now is unplug the router from the power and hook up the modem to the router and then plug the power cable back into the router.
After all this you should be able to go into the pc and access the router and set up the settings you like or need for the router if you want. Otherwise you should have internet again.
You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:
Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
