    I also have the same problem. I am running the same hardware setup, and can connect to the Internet from the HN7000S, but when I connect the HN7000 to the Netgear then I get nothing. I am new to this sorry, but would anyone be able to explain to me what steps I need to make to get this setup to work?

    Thanks, James

I'm not sure this is the issue but it is worthy of review. Routers are designed to separate networks or more properly subnets assuming you have the wan side of one router connected to the ISP and the wan side of the other router connected to the first router. You have two subnets in your house and they cannot be addressed the same. If the lan side of each router is addressed as 192.168.0.1 you have a duplicate IP address confusing situation that could well cause the devices to completely shutdown as you indicate. The first step of the resolution is fairly simple configure the LAN side of the second router to have 192.168.2.1 as its address. Assuming further that both subnets have masks of 255.255.255.0. The first router's subnet is 192.168.0 and the second router's subnet is 192.168.2 -- they are different and that is correct. The WAN side of the first router is configured correctly or it would not have worked with the satellite. The WAN side of the second router needs an address in the first routers subnet such as 192.168.0.2 if you wish to statically assign it. However this can successfully be defaulted to a dynamic IP address too. Configured in the stated manner the routers should work successfully. They can both have DHCP enabled for their own subnets. Computers hooked to the second subnet could still fail to access the internet if they lack suitable DNS addresses either provided by the router or statically configured in the wireless adapter configuration.

A second alternative would be to have a lan port on the second router attached to a lan port of the first router. now you have a single subnet and have effectively dumbed down the second router to being either a switch or a hub not bad. However there are issues here too. If you did not shutdown DHCP services on the second router you could have two routers competing to assign duplicate addresses to machines as they join the network which will make for unreliable and somewhat random failures of the networks to service attached machines -- so turn off DHCP on the second router. Should the second router have a static IP address on the wan side make sure it is unique and not in the first router's subnet. The lan side of the second router should be assigned a unique address in the first routers subnet although it will not really be used for anything.

If you have any questions please respond with a comment to this problem.

I have Hughs net HN7000S hooked up to my desktop I want to use my laptop I have a netgear N600 how do I hook it up? As o WAP or router?


You connect the ISP modem to the main port on the Netgear router. You should now see a wireless network on the laptop.

Passwords / keys / paraphrases are located in the wireless part in the web admin to the router. Same thing for the user / SSID.

How to plug a WNR1000 Wireless Router into a Hughes net HN7000S modem


It should connect with an Ethernet cable. Looks like a phone cable but is twice as wide with 8 pins instead of 4. Plug one end into the modem's Ethernet output port and plug the other end into the router's single WAN/Internet input port.

Router not hooked up properly??


Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.

Router will not route to another router of same type


The hughes modem is not a router.
What are you trying to do? Install the Linksys?

Plug the ethernet port on the Hugnes to the "Internet" or "WAN" port of the Linksys.

Then if you go into the config of the Linksys, you can tell if it gets a public IP address.

Cant hook up


ok... so im guessing your using sat for internet, so you would set one plug with zyxel PL-100 and it sending signal in, while adding zyxel PL-100 a computer works, and another craps out... Solution: use a router
insert satalite into wan port, set up router
run a client wire from the router to a zyxel PL-100
and the others should pick up off that one..

like so.. :direct from zyxel website specific for pl-100
