I believe the checkmark light is to say that the internet connection has been successful. Are the laptops connecting to the router but not the internet?
Connect a PC/laptop to the router via ethernet cable and goto the routers homepage (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1). then double check that your ISP settings have been entered correctly. This should get you online, if the problems persist contact your ISP to clarify your broadband settings, user logon, and that their service is up and running.
Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

Cant connect to internet using the ethernet cable on virgin broadband


OK find a computer thats already connected to it, and match everything to it except the ip address, if you don't have another computer connected to it go to the routers settings and pull up all the info about wep, dsn servers, write it all down then write everything in the security settings of local network then you should get internet.

I have an acer aspire 5735, when i try to connect to the internet it brings up an error and tells me i am tring to establish a second broadband connection. this has only started a couple of days ago but i...


........."Scenario: your neighbor is puzzled that his broadband performance is slow.He gets an expert like you to come and check whether his system is working properly. He is told "there's your problem - the people next door are using your connection and they seem to be downloading stuff using Kazaa and Limewire all day and all night. . the problem with that is if the two of you have the same brand of router (say Netgear), with default settings, then it won't know which is your "NETGEAR" network, and which is their "NETGEAR" network.That is why (apart from a little added security) I say to change the SSID."
"All wireless routers I am aware of have the facility to change the SSID (it usually defaults to something like "NETGEAR", or "3COM").But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID. If you don't change the SSID, then any neighbours with the same brand of router will have the same SSID, and your laptops won't usually know which one they are accessing. And setting the router to not broadcast the SSID is good too. But it is still a good idea to secure your own network - and change the SSID.

do you run it wirelessly or with an ethnet cable? also have you tried enetering the settings manually from the wireless setup menu? entering the network key in capital letters etc? sky broadband seems to be very fickle. as i have no end of problems with it disconnecting and running very slowly.

Connection


Connect your broadband router to the netgear router, set your netgear router as "gateway" and put netgear's IP address as your DNS Server and Gateway in your laptop wifi connection.

Netgear WGT624 router won't connect to the internet


I am in the UK and have found through experience the Netgear's seem to work perfect on a BT line (equivalent of AT & T)
but not on the cable.

I would suggest purchasing a Linksys by Cisco WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router as these seem to install in minutes,
saves me hours of wasted time when setting up wireless networks.

Modem connection problems


The DNS failing is because of your Broadband provider. When you purchased their internet, they were supposed to supply you with a modem. If they arent helping you with this, they are scamming you of your money and you need to go with a new provider. The DNS has nothing to do with what you do or what you can do. (Nothing you will do will controll this except for contacting an internet service provider.)

Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router


You have to configure your router...

If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.

If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.

Hope this could help..
