Connection issue I have a netgear FS605 5 port switch and want to try to separate a wireless router from the desktop computer. I connected the cable modem to the netgear switch then one line to the wireless router and another one to the desktop. I get the internet on the wireless but not the desktop. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi I would like o hook up a netgear prosafe 8port gigabit switch to my pc and run an ethernet cable which is allready hardwired to my sony bluray player so I can enjoy netflix


It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port

Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter

Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.

I just bought a laptop computer and I already had a desktop. My internet provider is Hugesnet Satelite. I bought a Netgear N600 wireless dual band router thinking I could just hook it up to my desktop...


The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.) 2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer. 3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions. 4. The network setup should be complete.

Are you able to ping between systems connected to the same Netgear FS605 switch and in same VLAN.
I suspect either switch port or Uplink cable issue.
Please try changing a new cable and if no improvement then please try with a different switch port.

I am trying to install a Netgear router after my switch. I end up having no internet on some of the computers connected to the hub and none on the router. If I configure the router as a dhcp client...


You'll want to configure your router as a dhcp server. Connect the switch to your router's lan port. Connect the remaining devices to a port on the switch. Your wireless access point should have it's dhcp server disabled. You can only have one dhcp server per network. The wireless can get it's address from the router's dhcp and the wireless client devices will get their ip address from the router, as well. If your wireless access point is a router with a wan/broadband port and some switch ports you will want to make sure that you are connecting to your Asus switch via one of the switch ports.
Be sure that your client devices are configured to get their ip address via dhcp and you should be surfing the interweb in no time flat.

Limited or no conncetivity?


Seems to be issue with the switch. If you can get internet after bypassing the switch then it is for sure an issue with the switch. try connecting the cable to other ports of the switch.

If it still does not work then it is time for you to replace the switch.

Rate it,if it helps.

I have 3 computers connected by D-Link router. Recently I found that the router was not working so I bought a netgear GS608 router to replace it, but I can't find the cd or instruction leaflet so I have no...


The thing is that this is not a router as I know. It has to be a switch. As I know.
You still need a router to connect to the internet and do the routing. First check that.
To configure the network, you have to connect 3 PCs to your switch. Connect the switch to a router. Use router's uplink or auto sense ports. Connect both the ports with a straight through cable. If you don't have such port in the new router (when you buy, check it first), use a standard ethernet port. But you have to use a cross-over cable. Then go to router's login page and log in. Set the dhcp. It will assign adresses to your switch and PCs also. Make sure you don't have static configurations in you machines which may confuse by duplication. To use dhcp, set you machines' IP settings to obtain IP and DNS automatically. Set the default gateway IP as the router's IP. Then open a command prompt and ping the router. Then ping the switch(first do that). Then ping other PCs. After verifying the connectivity, plug the cable(internet) and your router has to have such a port. Go to WAN settings and do any other configuration. Cable internet (if its adsl instead of TV cables), you will required to provide authentication information with other settings. For cable internet instead of ADSL, the configurations might be different and I don't have experties on that (cable TV used as a medium to access the internet). So hopefully this will do your task.
If this solution is able to solve ur problem, please rate it. Thanks and Good Luck. :)

Lost connection between switch and hub - LED flashes every 5 secs


You say you have the same problem when you connect the cable directly from router to laptop, so it apparently is not a hub problem. That leaves the router and the cable. You're fortunate in having a working system on the other port. Why not try swapping pieces to see which is the failed piece? For example, what if you swap the ports for the cables? If it's a router problem, then the "bad" cable should work when in the other port. What if you swap cables? That would reveal a bad cable. Finally, swapping computers would show a computer configuration problem, such as the connection not being set to automatic.

Wont connect and software cd


To connect a router or a dsl modem to a switch you either have to use port 4 or use a utp crossover cable. As you can see on the Netgear FS605 the modem/router has to be connected to port 4.

The correct way to connect these devices is:

Modem > Router > Switch > Computers
