INSTALL CD


No install CD needed with valid working internet with modem. First you need to turn off your computer then connect the working hsi modem to the Netgear router with the ethernet cord (looks like a thicker telephone wire) connect the ethernet cord from the back of the modem to the first single port on the Netgear not the ports labeled 1-4. Then with another ethernet cable snap one end into one of the 4 ports available and the other end snap into your computers ethernet port. Then unplug the MODEMs power cord for 30sec plug it back in wait for modem to boot back up with all of its lights and turn the computer back on. After install is finished you can now go and download your routers firmware from Netgear. In your address bar where it reads http://.........go ahead and highlight this and backspace it all until it clears to blank. Type in 192.168.1.1 and then hit enter. A window will pop up asking for username and password. For username type in "admin" for password type in "password" this is default and will always work unless someone has changed the username and password already on your home network, in which case contact netgear support. But if it does work the you will get Negear Smart Wizard. Here is where you can click on "Setup Wizard" and follow the prompts to download latest firmware and then Finished. Close down the netgear page and happy wireless internet surfing.

Netgear WGR614 router with USB Cable Modem


When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!

I have a NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router and internet through Mediacom with a Motorola SB5100 SURFboard cable modem. I have gone thru the setup process three times now, and the internet has hooked up twice...


Follow the below steps to reconfigure the router:

Connections:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router(isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that THERE IS NO DIRECT CONNECTION BETWEEN THE MODEM AND THE COMPUTERS (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

NetGear Wireless Router and connecting using a USB Modem


I think you're saying that you want to set up a Netgear from a wirless port. Is that the ONLY computer you have?

It's not IMPOSSIBLE, but it is improbable. By default, the Netgear has the address 192.168.1.1. If nothing else on your network has that address, it might be possible to plug in the Netgear, set the IP address of your computer to 192.168.1.2-254, and link to 192.168.1.1.

I didn't say easy, just possible. Easy would be to use a computer with a wired ethernet port or grab a friend with a laptop with a wired port. It's a 15-minute job.

Issue with router and ethernet cables


I imagine you reset/unplugged all of your routers, switches, and computers, starting with your modem, then router, and then each system?

There is a setup disk that need to be used to program your router with the ISP settings, passwords, and protocols for port forwarding, etc. I imagine you tried that.

Did you try all of your cables to make sure they weren't defective?

If you tried these,and the problem persists, the issue is a defective router. By default, the unit should transmit a wireless signal, and be ready to act as a routing switch for your other systems.

How do you hook up your netgear wireless router to your clear wire modem?


Hi Leon,

have alook at Clearwire's webpage (here), where they describe different setups for your router.
I personally would always prefer to connect the modem to the router via a cable. The cable you will need is an Ethernet (CAT5) cable and the connectors at the end look like this (compared to a phone cable:

e6394fa.jpg

You will connect the output of your modem with the WAN port of your router. This port is usually separated form the 4 other LAN ports, which connect to your computers, printers, etc.
(You didn't specify which router model you have, so I can't give you more details, but it should be very obvious, when you look at the back of your router.)

For the initial setup of your router, you should use a second Ethernet cable connected to one of the LAN ports of the router and to the Ethernet port of your computer.

If you need help with the wireless setup of your router, you have to look either in your manual of give me the details of your router (like the model and version, i.e. Netgear WGR614) and I'm happy to assist you.
