If my memory is correct even though there are 8 ports you can only use 7 of them. take out the 7th one or a couple of them if you can put them into the netgear. basically follow this: modem to linksys to netgear. as long as that path exsits they will all work. make sure to encrypt the wireless so your neighbors dont slow down your network speed or delete any of your files inadvertantly. You need to unplug from the wall electricity and have all computers off when you do this though so that they can all find then new paths. If you happen to have set up network paths with numbers suc as 192.168.123.5 and so on then you will either need to return them all to automatic or recheck these numbers after as both routers will port semi duplicate paths. When pluggin them in you may want to start plug in all the ethernet ports, then, modem, then plug in linksys plug in netgear.
now turn on all computers and printers and they should find the path automatically.

In my lap with windows 8 version netconnection i s not available,but with same wifi modem..NETGEAR N150 WIRELESS D S L Modem Router mobile is net.connected.


Netgear are products that are last to just about 90 days. I am a computer tech and do a lot of house and business calls to TS networks. Most problems come from Netgear, once they switch to another brand, the problem disappear. Even I had a wireless Netgear router, and had to return it because the life span was about 4 month and the complimentary support is only 90 days.
Just by rebooting the modem (turning it off and on) usually fix it for about 8 hours, then the cycle start again. After rebooting the modem/router, delete your saved network from Windows 8 and start fresh. That should work.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...


More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

I have a motorola modem and i wanna change it to a modem that have a 4 port switch how can i change it


You really don't need to change the modem. All you have to do is add a 4-port wired router (or wired/wireless one if you want to add the wireless capability). Netgear and Linksys units are easy to find at most retailers. Simply connect the router to the Ethernet jack on the modem, then plug your computer(s) into the new router.

This is much easier than changing the modem itself. You don't need to get your service provider involved if you just add a router.

I have a printer attached via USB to a wi-fi connected desktop in a WGR614g network which supports an additional ethernet-connected desktop and two wi-fi laptops. Can I make the printer wi-fi accessible...


Do a search engine hunt for a "WIRELESS PRINT SERVER" and you'll bring up a Netgear WGPS606 for about $60-80 or a Linksys for $36-150 (the same one :-)).

The Netgear has 2 USB A ports and 4 ethernet ports. You plug in your printer, activate the wireless part to receive a signal and you have a networked USB printer.

I assume the Linksys works exactly the same way, except it may not have the additonal 4-port ethernet switch.

Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.


As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

How to get wi fi at home for itouch?


Your better bet is a wireless access point. It plugs into your router and can be configured to be transparent to the network so that any IP address you get for your wireless device comes from the original router (better for networking).

At the blinkingly fast speeds of your Wireless internet, "N" is a waste. Get the "G". Here's a link to the product I would use...it runs about $50. http://www.tplink.com/products/product_des.asp?id=116
