Where does the cable from the wall jack come from? A switch that is connected to the Internet?

For the Internet to work with router, you need to have a modem that is connected to Internet already, meaning ISP knows about the router via MAC address, and from the modem use an ethernet cable to connect router port called "Internet" or "WAN". then from an open port in back of router another ethernet cable to your NIC in back of computer.

VPN connection - Client cannot connect


Hi mwells960

Theres alot of differnet things i could ask you, but im going to assume you're jsut setting up a basic VPN. That means that somebody is telecommuting to work and wants to hit the server at work.

That means you have a static ip at work, and your at home workers has whatever, a internet connection lets say. Im thinking DSL with ATT since its a netopia 3347N.

If the netopia has a gui interface, you cant vpn thru it. Its not a VPN router. Its a residential router that you're trying to make do too much.

The sad news is, you can't upgrade it to an Enterprise having firmware router anymore, netopia use to offer that, but when Motorolla bought them out last year, they did away with that nice little feature. For true VPN'ing with a router, first, go get a VPN router to start with.

Most people accomplish what you are doing by putting the netopia in to bridegemode, and then putting a VPN router like a linksys behind it.

Trying to get online


Check if you are getting an ip address...there is a possibility that eventhough you are connected you are not getting a valid ip address. Are you trying to connect to the same network or same SSID?

Networking Problem


When you are connected to your modem, find out what your IP address is....(double click on the icon in the lower left corner of your monitor) under the support tab it will give you your IP address you are being issued from your ISP. Now go ahead and connect the router and then connect your pc to your router. Go to your web based settings of your router....(type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 into an open browser window) admin is usually the username and password. From there you will want to go to "status"...make sure the same ip address was assigned to your router as it was assigned to your PC. If not you will have to release and renew to have your ISP re-assign to your new router. Within those settings ensure there is nothing prohibiting you from accessing the internet....your router will have a built in firewall as well as have mac filtering and certain other security settings. Let me know if this helps....once you have done this I will check back and assist you further if this is unsuccessful.

Good Luck

Sprint aircard 595U to belkin router model no# F5D7230-4


Try connecting the sprint card to your router's internet port. You will need a usb-to-ethernet adaptor, along with a networking patch cable, to connect the sprint card to the router.

Then either connect to the router with your two computers using cables, or wireless. If using wireless, you will need wireless adaptors for each of your computers, preferrably Belkin brand to ensure compatibity.
