Hi,

To achieve a steady Internet connection a stable Green Internet light is mandatory.

If the light is not coming up, I suggest you call in and register a complaint with your Internet Service Provider. They will need to troubleshoot and resolve the line issue.

If you require any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Netgear power is connected, but internet is not


If the router has no power you cannot connect to the internet.
If you have an internet connection then you are connected to someone else's router.

I'm unable to connect to the internet using my linksys wireless-g pci adapter to a Netgear router. It lists the router in the wireless network range, but cannot connect to it. Suggestions?


Go into the network settings through the browser. Go the where you change the "Channel" the router is transmitting with and change that to channel 6, instead of automatic. If you can access to router but not the internet, go to internet options through the browser and go to the connection tab and uncheck the box that deals with proxy server. That box should be unchecked and the box for automatically detect settings should be checked.

Frequent failure to obtain internet access


There can be many reasons to it. Contact Netgear support in your country. To find the support numbers, just google---- Netgear 'your country' Support ----- and you will most probably find a helpline. The helpline staff are very knowledgeable.

Router wont connect to internet


Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.

Netgear No Internet connected detected


Are you sure you have a PPPoE Modem? Usually these are DSL connections from Phone and Satellite ISP's... But there are also other ISP's that use them, although a very large percentage of ISP's just use DHCP. Try to set the router up using DHCP instead of PPPoE and see if that works...
To check if you are on the internet:
Start-> Run -> cmd [enter]
in the black box:
ping google.com [enter]

another useful command is:
ipconfig
