I've used a speed stream router in the past and it was basically plug and play. I've reset the modem and router (many times) the Router statistic and settings page (192.168.1.1) says everything is connected. ... Router...internet. It shows everything is connected but my computer can't pull up a web page. The two little tv screens icon in the lower right hand application bar say its connected too.
It worked find with the speed stream but I wanted to upgrade so I can have a print server also.
I've checked the cables and used the "reset" buttons on both the modem and router. Restarted the computer. Still nothing.

Re: Can't bring up web sites.Says connected.
1. check to see if you have an IP address 2. Go to the DOS prompt by typing "cmd" then type "ipconfig /all this will tell you if you have a valid IP address and that you are connected to the ISP. 3. At the same prompt type "ipconfig /release" then type "ipconfig /renew"

Its not a modem its a router. A Modem plugs in to a Telephone line. A Router plugs in to a Broad Band Line. A Modem connects to a RJ11 Cable. A Router Connects to a Coaxial Cabal, the router connects to a computer via wireless or ethernet after that. A Modem connects to a computer using RJ11 or RJ45 Cat4 Ethernet. Very different.
You can better use the Torrent for Uploading and Downloading flies and videos,the streaming and buffer depends on the site you using for watching video,because traffic increase means you network speed get slow,so better use good and latest browser,reset the modem everyday and check the speed of the internet at here Scanmyspeed.com
Lately I've seen alot of problems with people having a hard time signing in. Just a tidbit of background, the PS3 is very sensitive when it comes to the wifi card and network card sensitive enough that some modems, routers and modem/router combos have a very hard time allowing the PS3 to function online correctly. Now to get to the fix: unplug all cables from the modem and router for approximately 20 seconds and then plug all cables back in, modem 1st the router. Let the modem and router cycle through its powering and connection routine and then see if your PS3 will sign in. If it won't connect the the PS3 server still then find the reset button on the back of your modem/router or router if its 2 seperate devices and take a ball point pen and press the reset button in and hold it for no more than 9 seconds, allow the devices to cycle through and then try your PS3. If it still doesn't work then do the reset thing again but hold the reset button in for 15seconds this will put the device back to the factory setting (which if you use a passphrase, there will no longer be a passphrase and will make your network unsecure. You can put a new passphrase in using a PC and entering 1 of these 2 ip addresses in the web address bar 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 those are the 2 common ip addresses. Then go into the wireless tab and follow the intructions. If those ip addresses don't work then on your PC click on the start menu and in the search box type in cmd which will bring up a DOS prompt (Any Windows version XP and older you would type it into the run box) type this in exactly as I do ipconfig you ip address is the Default Gateway and thats the number you will type into the web address bar. NOTE; the most comon username and password to get into the modem or router is admin, admin. Comcast is admin, password1.
Reset the router to factory default
With the router powered
on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for
exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will
restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This
should show the router status page with the default settings.
How to setup new router:
Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If
you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note
of the user name and password.
Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.
Turn on in your modem and wait 10 seconds. Plug in your router and restart your computer.
Select "Start," then "Control Panel" and then "Network
Connections." Right-click "Local Area Connection" to bring up your
network connection properties.
Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)," then "Obtain an IP
Address Automatically" and then "Obtain DNS Server Addresses
Open your web browser. If you are prompted for a user name and password, enter the information you recorded in Step 1.
Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.

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://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 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.
If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:
a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab. b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?. c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.
If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:
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. 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. c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.
From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.
Your modem has already registered itself with the MAC address of your computer, so it doesn't recognize the MAC of your router. In cases like this you have two options:
Configure your router to clone the MAC of your computer
Connect the router to your modem and do a soft reset so the modem registers itself with the MAC of your router.
Clone MAC - Go to your routers Admin web interface and on the main page you should see the "Router MAC Address" section at the bottom. Select "Use Computer MAC Address" and click "Apply" and your router should reboot and you'll be back in business.
Soft Reset -
Plug the modem into the router via the ethernet cable then do a soft
To do a soft reset, do the following:
pull the power cord from the modem
count to 5
hold down the Reset EMR button on the modem
plug back in the power
count to 30 while holding the Reset EMR button (the modem should be blinking a lot)
release the Reset EMR button and see what happens.
I have tried also in the past, to set up a connection with this make of router with an ISP other than the ISP that supplied it and i was not able to get it to connect as i think the firmware is set to only recognise certain ISP IP addresses or MAC settings.
