    Is your router connected ti a DSL or cable modem? Have you moved to a different address? Have you contacted your ISP to tell them your new address?

We ll start with the physical connections.
1.take ethernet cable n connect one end of the cable to the modem and the other end to the isolated port on the router(internet port) and then connect the computer and your router with other cable(any lan port).refer the chart on the router to distinguish the internet and lan port.
2.check the light status on the modem and router.
router lite status-power,alphabet i lite,wireless lite(lollipop lite) and the number light lit up(depends on the port eg port no:1 connected number 1 light lit up).
3.check the ip address and default gateway address.
steps:In windows(xp,2000 etc),click on start->click on run->in the search tab type cmd->dos prompt window opens,type ipconfig and u ll get ip address and default gateway address(192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1).note it
In vista,start->in the search tab type cmd->dos prompt window type ipconfig->u ll get the address as specified earlier.
4.open the browser,type the default gateway address in the address bar and press enter.The login window ll ask for username and password. username-admin
password-password.
5.You ll enter the netgear smart wizard page.Run the setup wizard at the left side (blue screen).select yes and detect the type of connection.
6.If it is a cable modem-dynamic ip detected and click next.check whether the dns address is given automatically from isp and click apply.Then click on basic settings under setup menu and in that window in the router mac address select "use computer mac address "option and click on apply.Now click on router status under maintenance menu and check the ip address in internet port(it should not be 0.0.0.0) and in lan port(eg 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.0.2).
7.If its a dsl modem-the type of connection ll be detected as pppoe.click next.configure your router with the username and password provided by the isp and click on apply.The router ll save the settings and then check the internet port and lan port
address as given in the previous step.
8.Now we have to configure the router for wireless settings(both modems same configuration).
*click wireless settings under set up menu.
*In that page enter
name(ssid):netgear2
region:us
channel:11
. mode:g and b

In security options select wep and key1 give your telephone number so that you wont forget the password.CLICK APPLY.we have secured the n/w.
9.scan and connect to the network.
For windows vista-start->connect to->select the network name(netgear2)and click connect->it ll ask for password,enter it(telephone no).you ll successfully connected.Now disconnect the cable and try going online wirelessly.
For xp-start->control panel->network connections->right click on wireless network connection->select the network and configure.
10.you ll be able to go online wirelessly if there is any problem delete the preferred networks.
I have given you all the steps with examples to help you configure the router.hope you ll fix the issue and further assisstance im ready to help u but pls give details about your operating system,type of modem and no of computers so that it ll easy for me to troubleshoot.rate me if i have helped you.Thank you.

Hi skdeepak88,

I want to ask you regarding my WNDR3300 netgear router. I recently bought it, and installed it on my computer using windows vista, can connect to the internet using the provided cable. I have checked the lights on the router and everything seems working fine. But, when I try to connect my laptop wirelessly, it can connect to the network, but it cant really connect to the internet. The laptop is on vista as well.

Cant conect to internet using wirles with Windows Vista


Hi,

This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

Right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck.

Looks like conected but i cant get internet


Router might not be set up with the modem. Your router broadcast wireless signal when it is powered on, so even if it is not connected to a modem(where you get your internet from)you will have a local connection. That's normal. You need to set up the router. Call linksys technical support, if they cannot help try http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Internet access


You do need to be within range of a wireless signal.
Have you installed the drivers for the card properly?
Does the wireless card show up under "network adapters" in Device Manager? If not you may have to reinstall the drivers for the card. Also make sure that it is FULLY inserted into the PCMCIA slot for it to be recognized by windows and be in working order.
