Question about NetGear MR314 802.11b

1 Answer

Netgear MR314 HI! I have a cable modem and a Netgear MR314 router that I used on a different computer than the Gateway I have now. I am able to access the internet going from the cable modem via ethernet cable to my computer. I am unable to open internet explorer when I try connecting through one of the 4 ports on the Netgear router. All connections are made correctly. I would like to use the Netgear router port 1 and have my girlfriend connect her laptop to the same Netgear router so that we can access the internet without unplugging from the cable modem independently. Please advise what steps need to be taken to complete what would appear to be a simple task. Thanks. Paul

Chapter 1: Connecting the Wireless-G Broadband Router
Hardware Installation
1. Locate an optimum location for the Broadband Router. The best place for the Broadband Router is usually at
the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
2. Fix the direction of the antenna. Try to place it in a position that will best cover your wireless network.
Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna's position
enhances the receiving sensitivity.
3. Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the Broadband Router’s Internet port. Then, connect the other
end of the Ethernet cable to your Cable or DSL Broadband modem.
4. Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to one of the Broadband Router’s numbered ports with a
standard Ethernet network cable.
5. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Broadband Router's Power Socket and the other end into an electrical
outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Broadband Router. Use of a different adapter may result
in product damage.

Chapter 2: Configuring the PCs
Overview
The instructions in this chapter will help you configure each of your computers to be able to communicate with
the Router.
To do this, you need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or TCP/IP) address automatically, so
your PC can function as a DHCP client. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with the Router and each
other across a network, such as the Internet.
First, find out which Windows operating system your computer is running. You can find out by clicking the Start
button. Read the side panel of the Start menu to find out which operating system your PC is running.
You may need to do this for each computer you are connecting to the Router.
The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your network settings based on the type of Windows
operating system you are using. Make sure that an Ethernet or wireless adapter (also known as a network
adapter) has been successfully installed in each PC you will configure.
Configuring Windows 98 and Millennium PCs
1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network icon.
2. On the Configuration tab, select the TCP/IP line for the applicable Ethernet adapter.
Do not choose a TCP/IP entry whose name mentions DUN, PPPoE, VPN, or AOL. If the word TCP/IP appears by
itself, select that line. Click the Properties button.
3. Click the IP Address tab. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
4. Now click the Gateway tab, and verify that the Installed Gateway field is blank. Click the OK button.
5. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask you for the original Windows installation disk or additional files.
Check for the files at c:\windows\options\cabs, or insert your Windows CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and
check the correct file location, e.g., D:\win98, D:\win9x, etc. (if “D” is the letter of your CD-ROM drive).
6. Windows may ask you to restart your PC. Click the Yes button. If Windows does not ask you to restart, restart
your computer anyway.
Configuring Windows 2000 PCs
1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network and Dialup
Connections icon.
2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.
3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click
the Properties button.
4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Once the new window appears, click the OK button. Click the
OK button again to complete the PC configuration.
5. Restart your computer.
Configuring Windows XP PCs
The following instructions assume you are running Windows XP with the default interface. If you are using the
Classic interface (where the icons and menus look like previous Windows versions), please follow the
instructions for Windows 2000.
1. Click the Start button and then the Control Panel icon. Click the Network and Internet Connections icon.
Then click the Network Connections icon.
2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.
3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and
click the Properties button.
4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
Once the new window appears, click the OK
button. Click the OK button again to complete the PC configuration.

My internet Connects perfectly to the computer to the modem.. but when I put my router inbetween the two, it stops working and i've tried everything including restore factory settings, and it still...


Well in order to access internet via your router, it needs to be configured as you said its being restored to factory defaults. Also always mention your ISP (Internet service provider), Router model no and Computer type with running Operating system for exact steps to fix such problems
Alright, first of all we need to establish physical connection with the Modem -> Router->Computer, then we will setup router
  1. Connect Ethernet cable from Modem to the WAN port of the router.
  2. Connect another Ethernet cable from Router LAN port to computer LAN port.
  3. Power cycle all the devices (Turn on Modem first, then Router and at last computer).
  4. Usually in case of Cable ISP, router would automatically get connection from Modem and Internet should start working.
  5. Else you can open Router admin page to configure
  6. You need to find the IP address of your router (usually Default IP of Netgear routers is 192.168.1.1). I can't tell what is the IP for your router as you didn't mentioned Model no.
  7. Open Command prompt (Start-Run-CMD) and type IPCONFIG.
  8. Default gateway address is the IP address of your router. (You can also find router's default IP on the its panel below.)
  9. Now next step is to access router interface.
  10. Open Browser and type http://192.168.1.1 (It is just an example, you need to use the IP address of your router, we are assuming its 192.168.1.1). Press Enter
  11. Type "admin" in usename and "password" in password box to login (both are in lower case without quotes)
  12. In the left side you can find Setup Wizard, Click on Yes and then Next
  13. Wait for the process to complete and then hit "Apply".

Just having the wireless router without connecting it to cable modem or DSL modem will not allow you to get onto the Internet. The wireless card in your computer/laptop will allow you to get onto the Internet at a free public WiFi hot spot location such as McDonalds, Star Bucks, at the airport.
Also the wireless card in your computer/laptop may allow you to connect into an unsecured wireless router from your neighbors, if their wireless router is within range of your computer/laptop but without their permission to use their Internet, it is considered stealing from your neighbor. They have a set download limit from their Internet Service Provider and by you connecting to their ISP you may cause them to exceed their download limit and they would be charged additional costs for every Mega byte over their limit.

Check with Netgear for the IP address which allows you to connect with the routers settings through your computer. For Linksys, it is 192.168.1.1

Test light does not stop flashing


Hi Michael,

If the router has test light continously flashing then tha indicates hardware failure with the router. Try resetting the router using steps below:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which has a small button inside it). Press the button with the help of a paper clip. Press it and hold it from 30 seconds and after 30 seconds without releasing the reset button take out the power cable from the router and wait for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, without releasing the reset button plug the power cable back to the router and keep holding the reset button for another 30 seconds. Now, release the button and take out the power cable wait for 5 seconds then plug it back.

If the issue persists, then it is time for you to purchase a new router.

Rate it, if it helps.

Problem with netgear super g router


Here's sort of a checklist of things to consider:

1. First of all, connect the computer directly to the cable modem. Make certain that your ISP (Comcast) is providing internet service. Modems (DSL, cable) typically have a web page (HTML document output format) interface through which you can connect with your favorite HTTP client (that is, browser), such as MS Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. You can always connect to that if your computer has been given an IP address: you would look for the device you are connected to (modem, router) as the "gateway IP address" (for modems, it might be a 10.0.0.x IP number or something like that; for routers, it might be a private LAN address of 192.168.x.x or 172.16.x.x or something like that). Type in the gateway IP address: if it unsecured, you will see the interface immediately with gettable (status) and settable (configurable) form controls; if it requires authentication, you must enter a username/password combination to gain access to the interface. The default username/passwords are provided in the user guides of the device from the manufacturer.

2. Once you are sure the modem is providing service and that you have configured it properly, then remove the connection to the computer and connect the router. Check that all the lights of the router illuminate properly after startup.

3. Now connect BY ETHERNET (Cat 5 unshieled twisted pair) cable your computer to the one of the slots to the router. We'll go wireless later. Make sure that you are now getting internet service through the router while connected to it with the Ethernet cable. Make sure that you are talking to the router through its web interface. Again, look at your internet settings (find the gateway IP address), and enter that IP address into your browser. You will be challenged for authentication: use the router's default authentication (usually the user name is "admin" and the password is also "admin" or maybe a number sequence like "123456", I don't have your super G model number) and then enter the Interface. Perhaps you need to make special settings for the type of broadband: VCI and VCP values and protocol for the WAN side. You might need to learn these from Comcast's support (by phone or by web site).

Alternatively, rather than us the browser interface to your router, Netgear may provide a CD install disk which contains an application you run to directly manage your router device. It will configure it and also set it up for wireless (see next step).

When you see web pages (such as Google, Yahoo, even Comcast's) through your router, then you are ready to configure the wireless part.

4. While still connected to the router's web page interface in admin user mode, look for the wireless part. You need to set an SSID (don't use the default...create a name you can recognize). This SSID is broadcast to the wireless and you will identify it when opening your computer's wireless adapter. Set an authentication mode as well, so that only you and other can connect to your wireless and no one else (prevents unsecured connections, and turning your wireless into an open "hotspot"). Use WPA or WPA2 (not WEP) if you have it, and you will be given or asked to create a key which is probably a series of numbers and the letters A through F (a long hexadecimal number). Write down the authenticatin type (WPA or WPA2 with AES or TKIP and the key value) and then write this information in for the wireless setup of all computers wishing to connect to the router. You can create this also if Netgear provides an interface (by an CD install disk) for your computer: it may tell you to insert a USB drive to copy information that you would then use to configure all computers that will use the wireless, since it will setup a network configuration that includes the authentication key.

For specific information about how to configure the wireless adapter for router connection, you would need to give the OS you are using (WinXP? Win Vista? MacOS? Linux?)


In future posts, or messages to me, please as a rule provide as much information as possible about ALL devices, namely make AND model/product numbers, since often the experts can check online to see how you can interface with these and configure them.

Web Configuration Screen


You may have to remove proxy settings on your Internet browser. Or, remove the dial-up settings on your browser. The computer may not have received an IP address. Restart the computer or run the ?winipcfg? utility to dynamically assign the IP address (?ipconfig? for NT users), and then launch the browser.
