I have purchased a Netgear wireless G router (WGR614). I also have a broadband wireless card from Verizon that I was going to use Internet sharing. When I tried to set up the router, it asked for a PPPoE login and password. I cannot find this. Verizon said that it is not available since it is not suppose to be used that way. Not sure if they are just pulling my chain or what. Will you please let me know if there is a way to do this. I just found out that there is a cellular ready wireless router available, but it is $250.

To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info. To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;- http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.
You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.
First of all.... undo what you did from routerlogin.com
install your cd again and this time give your router vanilla settings like....
192.168.1.1 for its ip address
dhcp on (this will assign all devices on your subnet an ip address)
choose a wireless passkey
if you are using pppoe, indicate that in setup and you will need to enter a password.
what broadband system are you using?? (cablevision,comcast,etc.)
Are you positive you are on PPPoe ??
Go back to your ps3 after setting all of this up and reestablish your network connection.. let it take the ip from your dhcp server (in your router)
You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.
I'll take a stab at this. It's a bit difficult because I don't know what your level of expertise is. You're actually using the Netgear wireless ROUTER not a bridge. Your ISP can use a couple of methods to give you service. DSL companies like Verizon probably use PPPoE which require you to login and provide a password and VZ is notorious for closing down port 25.
O.K. Did I mention I don't like them very much? Anyway, I'm going to give you a link to Netgear's excellent web site for configuring a router and the XBOX connection. This is the whole list of v6 compatible instructions. Note the very bottom link to use Netgear routers with XBOX.
-- do you know your verizon username and password? -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- have you tried connecting your computer directly to the modem to check if you can get online?
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings, you need to input your verizon username and password on the router setup page then save the settings. Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
Connect modem to the internet port of the wrt54g Connect pc to port 2 of the wrt54g Reset the wrt54g, push reset button for 30seconds with the power on, uplug the power for 10 seconds Open internet explorer, type 192.168.1.1, you will be asked to login, no username, password is admin. This will take you to the router page. On the page you will se AUTOMATIC CONFIGURATION DHCP, change that to PPPOe, enter your broadband username and password. Click save settings at the buttom of the page. YOU WILL ONLY GET CONNECTION IF YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD IS CORRECT.
Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear
If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.
