What are your IP standards. Is our IP using PPPOe or PPPOa if it is using PPPOE or A you will need to program the router to match the setting of your ISP.

How to instal


Hi,
You'll wanna check out: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR1000_SM_WW_23Jan09.pdf
Look for "installation"..
To help you set up your router and get on the Internet quickly, the Resource CD contains a Smart Wizard™ Installation Assistant. The Installation Assistant walks you through the steps required to connect your router, modem, and PC(s); configure your wireless settings; and enable wireless security for your network. When you have finished, you will be Internet ready!
You can set up your wireless router using one of two methods:
• Smart Wizard Setup: The Smart Wizard Installation Assistant setup is available on your Resource CD. See "Installing Your Router Using the Smart Wizard" on page 9 to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant.
- This is the easiest option. The wizard guides you through the setup process. It automates many of the steps and verifies that the steps have been successfully completed.
- Smart Wizard requires a PC running Microsoft Windows.
• Manual Setup: If you cannot or prefer not to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant, see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13. For example, if you are connecting to a Mac, are using a Linux operating system, or are technically knowledgeable, select this option. If you choose to use this option and install your router manually, for best results, install and set up your router in this order:
Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or an inability to wirelessly connect to the Internet.
NETGEAR does not recommend or support adding a NETGEAR router behind another router, or replacing a gateway with a a NETGEAR router.
If you have a Macintosh or Linux system, you must use the manual installation method (see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13).Getting to Know Your Wireless Router 7
1. Install and connect your wireless router to your network (see "Connecting Your Wireless Router" on page 14).
2. Set up your wireless router for Internet access (see "Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access" on page 18).
3. Configure your wireless network and select wireless security settings to protect your wireless network (see "Configuring Your Wireless Network" on page 21)

How can i connect the router? i got a intellinet 192.168.1.1 there is one wan and 4 ports are there.i have dialog broad band connection.how can i connect it?or iwant to install any software?


This is very easy to do and you should have no problems doing this. The first step to installing it connecting your router to your broad band router through the wan port. All you do it take your Ethernet cable that went from your broad band router to your computer and attach it to your new routers WAN port. next wile your new router is turned off, turn off your broad band router and then turn it back on wile it is booting up turn on your new router this is not always necessary but it will make sure that they sink together properly. And that's it your done just hook up all of your other computers to the remaining ports and they should work with out a problem.

PS. this is just the basics of setting up your router if it has wireless you may want to think about implementing some security measures such as encryption.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
Norse

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.

Get rid of AOL network magic. I'm not familiar with either but I do know it's designed to help people who have no idea how to setup a home network. Log on to the routers cofiguration page and look at the router status to determine what the issue is. i.e is the router dropping the internet connection or is the router not connecting properly to your computers? If your using static IP addresses then you will need to re-configure these for the new router. Start by switching back to dynamic IP on all devices connecting to the router. It may always be a firmware issue with the router. If these steps don't work try updating the firmware (there should be an option in the config page (192.168.1.1)

It didn't come with software so cant install and run wireless


Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.

Cant connect to secured wireless network...


Hi Grant,

If it says aquiring acquiring network connection while you connect to the wireless network it means that something is conflicting with the wirelss network, so first you have to check wether 2 wireless utiliies ( windows wireless utility and dell utility )are active at the same moment, if yes disable one of them and try again, still if it does not connect, disable antivirus and firewall and check if that fixes the issue, still if it does not work then try changing the security type on the routers page, basically this should work out and still if u have any issue, please reply to this msg for further troubleshooting steps....

And even if it gets resolved please reply once.

Thanks and Regards
Anup
