Hi, I have a Netgear 16-port switch connected to the modem supplied by the Internet Provider. I have also connected Dlink IP Webcam to this network. I am not able to access the webcam outside my network, as I need to open the port for Netgear JFS516 switch.
I tried the normal routine of typing http://192.168.0.1/ in the internet explorer to start the setup for netgear, but nothing happened.

That is a good guess. Many of the switches available for home use are unmanaged, and will take any IP address given to them from the router and generate related IP addresses for the various devices on your network.
If your router has multiple Ethernet connections, you may not need the switch at all...just connect your Ethernet cables to the output plugs from the router.
1. You have to reset your router to its original factory configuration by using the reset button at the back of the router (WGT624 v3) near the antenna.
2. Connect the cable from the Globe Broadband Huawei B200 modem to the wan port of the router.
3. Connect another cable (RJ45) from the router (any Lan port on the router) to the laptop or desktop.
4. Switch on both device (modem and router).
5. Wait till both device boot up and the modem flash a blue, green and yellow color on its led and solid green to all router indicator led except the test led indicator flashing for a few seconds only.
6. Open your browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox, Safari...)
7. Type http://192.168.1.1 at the address bar.
8. Netgear setup website will open.
9. Go to advance settings.
10. Go to back up menu and click erase to reset your router to its original factory settings.
12. Switch off the device (modem and router).
13. Remove the cable connecting the computer and the Lan port of the router.
14. Connect the modem directly to the laptop using the cable.
15. Open a browser.
16. Go to the netgear website.
17. Go to the Support menu on the Netgear Website.
18. Type the model of the modem (WGT624 v3) on the blank space provided (Find your product).
19. Go to Downloads.
20. Download WGT624v3 Firmware Version 2.0.26_1.01 NA.
21. Read the instruction how to download the firmware and how to upgrade your router to the new firmware.
22. Save the downloaded firmware.
23. Exit the Netgear Website.
24. Switch off the modem.
25. Now follow the instructions #2 to #8.
26. Go to "Upgrade the Router" menu.
27. Upload the downloaded firmware to the router.
28. After uploading the firmware go to the Basic Settings Menu or use the Smart Wizard Menu to configure your Router.(Important Updates: Lan IP Address will be changed automatically to 10.0.0.1). Automatic internet connections will be tested by the network.
29. Configure your wireless settings. Logout.
30. Reboot all the devices and the laptop/desktop.
31. Follow the sequence when rebooting. (modem-router-laptop/desktop).
32. Open a browser and browse any website.
If you have ports in your router , even it it shows that the port is closed in http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ if the application for which you have forwarded the ports works then no issue with that. If it doesn't work then we need to know who is your internet service provider , because its is a DSL connection which works in the Dynamic configuration then its obvious the port will not be forwarded beacuse of double NAT. Inorder to fix this you have to bridge the DSL modem .
switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem....
because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch....
With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub....
This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....
Hi, by default the Linksys router is set to DHCP... So all you have to do is connect an ethernet cable from your modem to the WAN/Internet port of the router and then connect a PC to one of the ports, see if that will be able to connect to the Internet if not, try to do a power cycle (turned off everything and then turn on the modem first and wait for all the lights to be stable and turn on the router and then the PC) once the computer gets online you may connect the rest... should you require to connect more than 4 PCs, you may need to have a switch but with this setup the physical connection should be
Modem to WAN port of the Router to Switch port and all PC should be connected to the Switch's ports
It sure sounds like the switch is not passing the DCHPDISCOVER packets through to the Apple Extreme.
Is the switch a NetGear Prosafe switch, or a GS608, or a different model?
If it's a managed switch (e.g. ProSafe) then you can connect to the switch's management UI and confirm that the default uplink port is set up for the port that connects to the Apple Extreme, and that it's set to forward DHCPDISCOVER packets to that port
If it's an unmanaged switch like the GS608, then it shouldn't matter which port you connect, but if your model has one port labeled "uplink" then you should be sure to use that port to connect to tha Apple Extreme.
One last thought -- have you replaced the cable that you're using between the switch and the Apple Extreme? You could test the network by first connecting your computer to the Extreme so it gets a valid lease, then unplug it and hook up the full network (computer -> switch -> Extreme) and see if you can still ping the router.
That's a bunch of thoughts, but may not be a solution yet. If these don't address the problem, post back with the model number of your Switch, and I'll go more in-depth.
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.

Hi There, first of all you need to connect from your modem or router's port a link. Use a cat5 ethernet cable from the modem to the switch or if you also use a router from a port in back to the switch. Then when you plug in other computers it will see the internet connection.
put the blue cable connection with the router and cable modem first.configure wireless setup.put the desktop rj45 connection to a free router rj45port.As u are getting internet on wireless check the desktop ip configuration.obtain auto ip configuration should be clicked.
