My cable come through usb router wants ethernet connection

Can this router be saved? New Netgear Wireless Router WNR1000 tells me to connect the computer via ethernet cable to router. Trouble is that my cable comes through a USB cable. Their website is a little less than helpful.

My computer tells me that I have the wrong router model but I'm sure that it's the one it is asking for. It says that NETGEAR doesn't support any other router but WNR1000 or higher and I have a...


it would be easy, first things first. you need to connect your laptop directly to the netgear router. by plugging the ethernet cable on the first slot after the yellow slot on its back. after making sure that we are connected. try to open up internet explorer or mozilla firefox. then type this numbers, " 192.168.1.1 it should ask you for a username and password. username is "admin" all in lower case and password is the word "password" itself. all in lower case. after that it would take you now to the netgear page. then try to check the leftside of the screen and look for wireless settings. make sure you would be on wireless settings. because the other one is advance wireless settings. then create your own network name in SSID. then choose security options as WPA PSK TKIP. then create your own personal password in passphrase. make sure its 8 characters long then click apply settings. then try to access it now then unplugged cable. then try to access website. it should work.

Hey. I want to use my Netgear WNR1000 as an extra accespoint for better range, is it possible?


Step 1: Make sure your old router is working. Step 1a: Connect the Broadband modem to your OLD_ROUTER's Internet (WAN) port. Then connect the computer to one of the four available ports on your router through an Ethernet cable.
Step 1b: Make sure that the Internet connection is working on your computer and on your wireless devices.
Step 2: Configure your new router
Most routers have an IP address of 192.168.1.1 so before you connect them, you need to ensure that they have been assigned two different IP addresses.
Step 2a: Shut down your OLD_ROUTER and the modem. Also unplug the Ethernet cable from the computer.
Step 2b. Plug the Ethernet cable into any of the numbered ports of NEW_ROUTER and connect the other end to your computer. Switch on the NEW_ROUTER.
Step 2c. Access the web dashboard of NEW_ROUTER (192.168.1.1) and change the local IP address to something like 192.168.2.1 so that there's no conflict with the old router. Save the changes.
Step 2d. Test the SSID name of the new router and make sure it's different from the old router. Also make sure that SSID broadcast is turned on. Save the changes.
Step 3: Connect the two routers
Step 3a. Connect the modem to the Internet Port of the OLD_ROUTER.
Step 3b. Connect one of the number ports of OLD_ROUTER to your computer.
Step 3c. Connect another free port on the OLD_ROUTER to the Internet Port of your NEW_ROUTER using an Ethernet or LAN cable.

How do i change my password on my Netgear WNR1000 wireless router?


  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.

I have an ipod touch and im trying to find out my router password for a netgear wireless wnr1000 model router.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a desktop/laptop computer to one of the LAN ports on the router. Then, access the web-server "inside" the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to set an SSID and to enable 'WAP' security, and to set a password.

How do i connect my netgear rangemax wireless router


You should have a manual/setup guide.
BUT, the basics of setting a wireless router are.

Connect an ethernet cable from your MODEM to the WAN port on the rear of the ROUTER.
Connect an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports (usually 4) to your computer.
You now log on to your router via your web browser, set your wireless security (using WPA2) choose your password.
Save and exit from the router setup, disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer to the router and try and connect wirelessly
Your support page is here, choose which version of the router you have and download your manual

My wnr1000 wont recognize an internet connection. But I am certain there is one


Hi,

Please perform the below steps to reset and reconfigure your WNR1000 router:

RESET:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which says restore to factory default settings). Press the button with the help of a paper clip and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the router for 5 seconds then power the router back.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this allows you to resolve the issue.

Regards
Anand

I ordered a wireless router so I can hook up my PS3. My computer is not compatible with wifi so I thought I'd just leave it hooked up to the modem. The instructions tell me to put the CD into my computer...


You have to use the computer to insert the CD

As your computer is not wireless compatible, you can have this connected to the router itself on the wired connections and use PS3 on wireless
Do NOT connect your computer to modem and also Netgear to modem.
Either one of them won't work. Instead connect modem to Netgear and computer to Netgear with an ethernet cable.
After this type of connection is made, try to setup the router with the CD inserted into computer.

This is how things work!

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck
