Hi Chapers,
Before resetting the router need to know the settings of your new service provider which can be changed so that it can worked with your new service provider. If the router settings are correct and you are connecting you router wirelessly with computer, need not to do anything else if it was working previously.

I cant get the internet to work through the router. then i also cant get my xbox to work either


This really depends on how your Internet service works. There are two types of Internet authentication. PPPoE and DHCP. You should know this first.

If you do, for PPPoE, you should be given a user name and password that should be set to the modem provided by your ISP(Internet Service Provider). You have to set your modem to bridge mode and set all the router to PPPoE then enter your user name and password.

If your Internet service authentication is a DHCP, you still have to set the modem to bridge mode (provided by ISP). Then set your router setting to DHCP. Reboot both your devices and you should be able to connect.

Hope that helps.
Thanks.

Make sure that the cable from the modem goes to the Router's Internet slot.
then the cable from either 1,2,3,4 can go in your computer.

then you need to turn OFF the router and modem for 1 minute
then turn ON the modem first, wait for 30 seconds.
Then turn ON the router, wait for 30 seconds. It shold work now.

I have a belkin router N-150 F6D4230-4 and it has been hooked up for a while. Well, I had to get my internet turned back on today and now my wireless internet does not work. The modem light is flashing on...


It would be best if you setup the router again. Restore the router to factory defaults. Note: This will remove all previously configured settings "some router has reset button on the back of the router cover by a sticker. The reset button is small that you need a pen to reset it."

1.Unplug the power to the cable / DSL modem
2.Connect the power to the router.
3.Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports of the router.
4.Restart your computer.
5.From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser (internet explorer).
6.Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1
7.Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.
ISP Connection Type
AT&T PPPoE
Charter PPPoE, Dynamic
Comcast Dynamic
Earthlink PPPoE, Dynamic
Qwest PPPoE
Road Runner PPPoE, Dynamic
Verizon PPPoE, Dynamic
8.Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
9.Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
10.Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers

If issue is not resolve you can contact your Internet Service Provider for assiatnce.

I'm having trouble with my DLINK dir-615 router. I can get a connection to the router through a wired connection and I also can connect to the router via wireless. I CANNOT get access to the internet...


I believe you have an IP Address conflict or the router needs to be configured for PPPoE. Here's how:

Basic DSL Setup - PPPoE


Most Internet Service Providers offer PPPoE authentication. Please consult your ISP if you are not sure if PPPoE could be used.

To configure your router for PPPoE you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'PPPoE' option. However majority of Modems nowadays already have PPPoE enabled. If your modem has PPPoE client built-in, you need to select the 'DHCP' option in your router. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration steps:

Step 1

Connect the broadband modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2

Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.0.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, the default is `admin' (optional) and password is blank (nothing).

Step 3

After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection to 'PPPoE' option.
This can be done by either clicking on Internet Connection Setup Wizard or if you want to set it up manually, then click on 'Manual Internet Connection Setup'. Note that it is very common for broadband modems to carry out the PPPoE authentication for you. In this case you need to select the 'Dynamic IP' option (DHCP) in your router, do not select PPPoE. If you have such modem proceed to Step 5

Step 4

If your broadband modem does not have PPPoE function, select the 'PPPoE' option in the router and enter your account details (username and password given by your ISP). Note that some ISP's require username to be as your full e-mail address (ex: username@ispname.com).

Step 5

Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE to apply the new configuration. Recycle power to modem.

You do not have to run any login client (like PPPoE) on your computer in order to connect to the Internet. If you had it setup when using the modem without the router, disable it in Internet Explorer under Tools > Internet Options > Connections > set to 'Never dial a connection'.

If you did not have to run PPPoE login client on your computer when modem was directly connected to your PC, your ADSL modem has PPPoE built-in. In this case set the router's WAN (INTERNET) port should be set to the 'Dynamic IP' option.

If your ISP requires PPPoA connection you need to make sure that your ADSL modem supports PPPoA (PPPoA can not be used on Routers which do not have ADSL Modem built-in). If your modem will be carrying out PPPoA connection you need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to the 'DHCP' option.


If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet:

- Turn the modem and the router off for a minute and then turn the modem first and then the router.

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.0.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.x. You can do this on your router under Setup > LAN Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Select the MAC Cloning option. Click on Clone MAC Address button. Do this from the computer which the broadband modem was directly connected to the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router. Reboot your broadband modem as well.

- Uninstall your antivirus software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC.

Configuring router for Cable Internet

To configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration steps:

Step 1 Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2 Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.0.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default is `admin' and password is blank (nothing).

Step 3 After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection to 'Dynamic IP (DHCP)' option.
This can be done by either clicking on Internet Connection Setup Wizard or if you want to set it up manually, then click on 'Manual Internet Connection Setup'.

Step 4 Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE to apply the new configuration.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to:

- Select the MAC Cloning option. Click on Clone MAC Address button. Do this from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected to the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router. Reboot your cable modem as well.

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.0.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.x. You can do this on your router under Setup > LAN Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.

Need help with wireless router and wireless verison card.


You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.
