Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Adding computer to wireless router

Newbie here.

I set up a new NetGear WGT 624 wireless G router (connecter to TimeWarner cable modem) to work with a new Toshiba Satellite Laptop A215 which came with an internal card.

Now I'd like to add a (donated) GigaFast Wireless G USB 2.0 Adapter WF747-UI to my Sony PC (running XP). I have the CD for this & tried an install, which seemed to take. The PC "sees" the NetGear router with very good signal strength, but can't connect.

I can't resolve this using the Windows wizard. I suspect I have to approach this from a different direction..... Where do I start?

I cannot connect to the internet when I use the netgear router.

If I am understanding you correctly, you are removing the cable from the modem, then connecting it to the router. This is your first mistake. Once you've completed the connecting wizard on the CD that came with the router, you should take the cable that is connected from your modem to your PC, and disconnect it from the PC and connect it to the "WAN" port on the router. Then take a second CAT5 cable, and connect it to port 1 on the router, then to your PC where the first cable was connected. If this does not solve your issue, please respond.

D-Link connect to comcast

connect the the ethernet cable to the WAN port of the modem.

the connection should be:
One end of the cable is connected to the modem and the other should be connected at the WAN port of the modem.

Now use another Ethernet cable plug it in on the LAN port1 and the other end to your computer.

Access the configuration page of your router and set the wireless setting inside your DI-624 router.
