Check if a cable is connected well the light will blink on the ethernet port. After that you cant see the whether the cable is connected just go to the My Network places(if you are using the microsoft windows) and goto network connections and local arear connections, right click it,and go to properties , now you can see the select button with message like (show icon in taskbar when connected ) just select it apply all the setting which is changed and close it reconnect the cable now you can see the message when is cable is connected

The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.

1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer.
2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port.
3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.

4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider
5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes.
6. Now power on your PC.

Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.

Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

Ethernet port is marked clearly,so it is hard to make mistake.You need to connect router using cable to your computer.Turn off modem,router,and computer.Then turn on computer-router-modem.If this failed, unplug them all together-then start them all together.If failed again reinstall software for the router step-by-step.No rush.Start with reading manual how-to nice and slow. It looks like to me that you skipped some step/steps during installation process.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

error 321 or 322shows that the cable is not connected to the router and the computer.
That is actually a bug in the CD. Even if the cable is connected it shows that it is not connected.
You can set up the router manually, without the CD.

Connect with an ethernet cable then type http://192.168.1.1 into a web browser and see what happens. If you get a log in screen leave the username blank and use the password 'admin' (without the quotes). this will tell you if the router is accessable to the computer.

Trying ti install my dsl-2640b wireless g adsl2+modem router


If you have plugged the ethernet cable directly into the motherboard, make sure the onboard lan is enabled in the bios, if you have plugged into a pci nic adapter you will have to install a driver for it, winxp should have the driver for your adapter other than that I cannot help any further.

best of luck

Set up with cd on MacBook


yes you are right.. the cd which came with the router will not work with mac or vista computers..
don not worry about it, you can do a manual troubleshooting to fix this problem, i will give you a step by step procedure to fix this problem..try this out ..
To setup your router for a cable modem..
first check..
Connect the Cable modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. If it can go on line,
to setup connection..
Step 1:
Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3.
Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 4:
check if you are able to go on line wired..
if not your router has to be configured first,
to config your router first check this settings..
Configuring TCP/Settings in MAC OS X
Step 1:
Click the Apple icon, select Location, then choose Automatic.
Step 2:
Select Built-in Ethernet under Show.
Step 3:
Click the TCP/IP tab and select Using DHCP under Configure or Configure IPv4.
Step 4:
Leave the Search domains or Additional search domains fields blank.
Step 5:
Click Apply Now.

You should now be able to access the router’s web-based set up page and configure your router.

Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
Step 4:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the drop-down arrow under the Internet Connection Type field and select
Automatic Configuration - DHCP.and then scroll the page down and click save settings..
Step 5:
Click MAC Address Clone you would find this sub tab at the top in the blue bar.
Step 6:
Select Enable and click Clone Your PC’s MAC.and click save settings..
Step 7:
Click Status at the to right side ion the black bar
Step 8:
Check the value of the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you’re not on-line, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem.
Power Cycling
Step 1:
Shutdown the computer.
Step 2:
Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3:
Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4:
Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5:
Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6:
Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

Now if you are on-line wired remove the cable from the laptop and check for wireless connection

i am sure this would fix your problem in case if you have any more issues revert back to me..

Setting up linksys adsl2 modem


The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

To setup a Linksys ADSL Modem with usb cable you need to perform two steps:
  1. Connecting the Devices Together
  2. Installing the USB Driver

Step 1:
Connect the phone cable to the wall jack with ADSL service and then connect the other end to the ADSL port of the modem.
Step 2:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 3:
Connect the USB to the USB port on the back of the modem and then connect the other end top the USB port of the computer.
Step 4:

Installing the USB Driver
Step 1:
Power on the computer.
Step 2:
When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears. Click Install the software automatically (Recommended).
NOTE: Windows XP has pre-installed drivers for the ADSL2MUE and will automatically install the USB driver for the modem.
Step 3:
Click Finish.
