Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm trying to set up my Mom's new Gateway laptop to her new Netgear router through a ewire modem, so she can use her computer anywear in her house. We ordered the net gear pc card and it does not fit properly. After calling them back (Kanokla, the company that sold the Netgear products to us) they told us that we probably didn't need the card, it should be built in. Please help!

If the notebook is new (less than two years old) then it almost 100% most definitely absolutely has built-in wireless.

The card doesn't fit since it is a PC card and new notebooks use ExpressCards instead.

This could be a few things. all are simple settings.

If you can see other computers but can't get out, your acer needs the gateway ip number. If you are running DHCP this should be automatically set but you can also manually edit the IPV4 settings
TCP/IP and add the gateway as well as the other settings. The gateway is the ip# of your router that is connected to the cable modem or the dsl modem.

As long as you don't have the number range set you can fairly safely add any number in the allowable range. So you could edit the tcp/ip settings with something like the following:

adress: 192.168.2.25
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.2.1 ** insert actual addy of router.

DNS servers can be found on your isp's info page. You can use any dns server that will let you connect. Without the dns you won't get out on the net either unless supplied by DHCP.

Running install disc, says does not support operating system


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I would go wireless. Try to connect to the net using a laptop (wireless) at the guest house. If the signal strength is decent you should be fine with getting a wireless NIC for the PC in the guest house.

If the signal strength is bad, either buy a 802.11N router (make sure it's N and not draft N, these should be available now or within a few weeks (nov 09), or buy another access point and connect it via ethernet to the main access point. you only want one modem and one gateway generally speaking.

Same old question, but I cannot get a connection between my Netgear wireless router WGR614 to my cable modem.I follow the set up via the router's wizard. But no luck. Even unplugged the modem for 15 mins...


Can you pls confirm if you have cable or PPPoE connection. Also, please connect the modem directly to the computer and let me know the results:

A. Click on Start—Programs—Accessories—Command Prompt.
B. In Command Prompt window, type in 'ipconfig' and hit 'Enter'. Note down the IP Address, Subnet mask & Default Gateway here.
Once I have this information, it will be quite easy to configure the router.

New mini computer says"acquiring network address" shows contected to netgear but won't access the internet


It means your router dhcp is not running proeprly.
You can set ip addreses manually.

for that go to my network places proeprty then you see your network adapter right click on it then go t oit's property then tcp ip .
Set ip addreses , subnet mask and gateway.

set your ip addreses if your router ip is 192.168.1.1 then you can set your computer ip is 192.168.1.2
subnetmask as 255.255.255.0
and set gateway as your router ip means 192.168.1.1

you can access your router with default link
http://192.168.1.1
or http://192.168.0.1

type user name a s"admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

then check its ip and settings.

Does a router or combo need to be connected to computer?


As you already have the modem you only need a router. In all cases the modem connects to the WAN port on the router.

I think your best bet surely would be to go for a wireless router though? Then you wouldnt have to trail ethernet cables all round the house. I'm sure your laptop has a wireless adaptor built in unless it;s very old.

I always use Netgear networking stuff so forgive me posting a link to a nice 54G wireless router :-) :

Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
