Have you tried to reset router. It has to be done in order.
1. unplug router
2. unplug modem
3. shut down computer and restart after waiting 1 min
4. after restarting computer plug power back into modem and wait for all the lights to start blinking
5. after the modem is working plug power back to router and plug in the computer with ethernet cable and make sure you have internet,
6. try to link up with wireless,
If this does not work you will have to setup the router for wireless if it is att wireless you will have to call them to give you the password to set it up.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    How do i connect my netgear rangemax wireless router


    You should have a manual/setup guide.
    BUT, the basics of setting a wireless router are.

    Connect an ethernet cable from your MODEM to the WAN port on the rear of the ROUTER.
    Connect an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports (usually 4) to your computer.
    You now log on to your router via your web browser, set your wireless security (using WPA2) choose your password.
    Save and exit from the router setup, disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer to the router and try and connect wirelessly
    Your support page is here, choose which version of the router you have and download your manual

    Netgear WGR614 router with USB Cable Modem


    When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!

    Issue with router and ethernet cables


    I imagine you reset/unplugged all of your routers, switches, and computers, starting with your modem, then router, and then each system?

    There is a setup disk that need to be used to program your router with the ISP settings, passwords, and protocols for port forwarding, etc. I imagine you tried that.

    Did you try all of your cables to make sure they weren't defective?

    If you tried these,and the problem persists, the issue is a defective router. By default, the unit should transmit a wireless signal, and be ready to act as a routing switch for your other systems.

    Have 2 desktops and we need internet connection on both


    Hello...if your son's desktop is set up near the router, the simplest way is connect his desktop to the router via an ethernet cable.

    To do this, find an ethernet cable. Plug one end into a spare port (socket) on the back of the router, and the other into the ethernet port on his desktop (it should look like this, with the ethernet symbol under it).

    That's it! He should soon be connected to the internet.

    NOTE: If you need to buy an ethernet cable, key words to look for are Cat5e or Cat6, straight or patch cable - NOT crossover.

    If your son's desktop is not near the router, you may want to consider a wireless connection. Please come back to Fixya if this is the case, as this takes a little more time.
