Connection I have a new internet service with comcast, the router says I am connected but it won't load any pages and says it's not connected. Are there any settings that I need to change? Also when I go to the router settings page I have to have a password and I forgot it, how do I do a complete setup with this router?

Using the main computer, open your Internet Explorer and on the Address Bar type http://192.168.1.1

It will prompt your for username and password. By default leave it blank on username and type admin on the password

Under SETUP tab, click the sub-tab MAC ADDRESS CLONE
Click on ENABLE and click the button CLONE YOUR PC's MAC then click on SAVE SETTINGS at the bottom.

Nowpower cycle your devices. Turn off router first and then modem. Waitfor 30 sec. Turn on modem first, wait for lights to stop blinking thenturn on router.

That's it. You should be able to share internet on all your computers that are connected to the router.

Connecting MacBook or NetGear Router to Comcast


As a Comcast tech I assure you there are no special protocols used on a standard residential installation. There should have been nothing the tech downloaded to your pc most especially an executable file. I would assume he or she was making sure you were able to get to the customer installation page before they left. However if you have a router that the ports are not functioning on you are most welcome to have one shipped to your home for replacement. The wifi key provided on the bottom of the router is case sensitive most generally all in caps. If you dont have a spare cat5/6 cord to see if thats the issue ask them to send one with the new modem. Comcast does not charge you a fee for a truck roll when its faulty eqt. of their own. I have installed hundreds of apple products including the ones you are referring to as well as netgear routers they all work with the gateway Comcast provides the customer. Now if you want there is a tiny factory reset pin button at the very top of the gateway in the back you will need a paper clip to push it in. Hold it in there about 10-15 seconds and the gateway will reboot and return its setting to factory spec. try that first before calling customer service.

Cannot contect to apache through wrt54g


Highly unlikely. That would block all HTTP sites that use Apache. Even then, how would they distinguish one web server from another type. Your error is based on a specific site, or all internet if Comcast does not show their splash page saying it can't reach a specific site.

When router is connected to D-link modem, no internet service for Macs or PC through Comcast. Had router tested at Apple store, and it tested fine. Comcast says it is a "router problem" but this occured...


Try running this test... I got it from a Comcast technician who came out when I had same problem.
Look for any failures or anomolies. Look at the signal page and check to make sure the signal to noise ratio is in the 30's or low 40's. If higher, call Comcast and tell them.

Internet connection issue. Is it setup or internet service


The problem would be comcast. Your connections are setup correctly. The modems do not control the internet traffic flow, they are made to produce maximum flow.
If more people use the internet, the less flow it will have.
Check all internet options settings, and make sure EVERTHING is set to automatic

I cannot connect with linksys wireless router


From your description, you appear to be connected to the router fine.

Try powering down the modem from Comcast for about 2 minutes then power it back up. If it doesn't come back, call Comcast service as it is likely on their end.

Hope this helps.
