Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router--trouble opeing ComCast email

Sadly the mimo router you show in the picture is similar to the one I had. I still have it, and it works somewhat. I had the same problems, and Netgear had no fix for me.

So I fixed it with dlink, I went and bought a dlink router and the problem vanished. Sorry to reply like this, but it was the only fix for me. The dlink router has worked flawlessly. I refrained from further Netgear purchases after this. The problem has not returned. :) Now please don't rush out and buy dlink, any other brand will work, like linksys, or belkin. Sometimes the problem is caused by the brand. This problem and many like it caused Netgear major problems they'll never recover from.

Word of the wise..Quality can never be fixed by quantity. Pay the extra $10 and get a decent router.

You do not have to use the cd.
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
