Re: smc connection problem
I think that you may use one of these options
1. Use the below username and password to login to the GUI of the router as the administrator
2. In case that this does not work, you may want to reset the router settings to factory default. To reset press and hold reset button on back panel for at least 30 seconds -- all front pannel LEDs will come on when unit is reset. Default router IP address is "192.168.2.1" or "192.168.2.1:88".

1. check with you ISP to get a line condition it could be a physical issue at the drop if it is a DSL line. If it is a cable connection it could be what is called a collision effect. 2. If you have your unit by any electronics or if your location of your router is near a device that will interfere with the signal this could be the issue. 3. Check with Vonage and see if there is an IP conflict give them the experience that you have with all details and have them check there server. this could be the issue. There server could be dropping packets due to capacity overload or a major switch issue. 4. check the manufacturers website for firmware updates for you router.
The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset
If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.
To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
Power on the wireless router/access point.
Reboot the PC.
Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP
address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the
Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.
Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports. Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys. Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys. If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:
Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength. To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address. When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server. You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER. A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER. This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range. A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.
Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN. This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".
Are you able to get online directlty from modem? If yes check what is IP address you get from modem, if it is like 192.168.1.xxx, then you need to set connection type as DHCP(not PPPoE), and change router's local IP address to 192.168.2.1 , and reboot router and modem.You can try this steps:
1. Access the router setting via a browser. 2. On Setup, Basic Setup: - Internet Connection Type unchanged as "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" - Local IP Address changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 - Settings saved 3. Clicked on Status to check if IP Address value has numbers (not 0.0.0.0). If you have zeroes, click DHCP Release then DHCP Renew. 4. Wired connection to internet OK. Wireless connection from a family PC also OK. Good to go i thinks.Let us know.
Can you still connect to the Internet with the Linksys router? I suggest that you go ahead and reset the SMC router to clear up your previously configured settings. Then before reconnecting it to the linksys router, make sure that you can access its web interface via 192.168.1.1. Don't disable DHCP as your computer won't be able to obtain an IP address from it automatically. Do not change other settings. Next, disconnect the ethernet cable and check if you can access the router interface wirelessly. Once done, connect SMC's WAN port to Linksys' numbered port. Make sure SMC's WAN light is on, as well as the light for the port you used on the Linksys router. Check if you can get online.
With this configuration, the linksys router is now acting like a modem, and the SMC as your router. As long as you're online when wired to the linksys, you should also be able to access the net on the SMC once you physically connect them.
Either the network connection between the 360 and router is not working correctly, or your router is not configured properly for DHCP.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that automatically assigns a network address (and some other settings) to your computer....or Xbox in this case. It works like this....when your Xbox connects to the network, it sends out a broadcast packet on the network that looks for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is present, it responds. Next the Xbox requests its network address and other settings from the DHCP server. Your WGR614 router has a DHCP server function built in, but it may not be enabled. Try reconfiguring the router using the Netgear "Smart Wizard" installation CD and be sure to enable the DHCP capability, if asked.
Sounds as if your router may need to be set to enable wireless connection and enable DHCP, this alocates your wireless adapter an I.P Address automatically.
If this is alraedy the case, check the properties of your adapter to see if it's set to recieve I.P address automatically.
If still no joy find your routers I.P. address and DNS address (this is what you type in your web browser to set it up).
If your router is 192.168.2.1 or similair, set your adapter at 192.168.2.2 and the same DNS address normally 255.255.255.0.
Restart both pc and router and try again.
Also make sure network sharing has been set up via the XP wizard.
