Netgear RandeMax 3500 and comcast problem

I am up and running and I can be connected for a few minutes, and then it just disconnects and connects, and disconnects and reconnects numerous times, it happens over and over again. When I am connected by ethernet there are no problems, it is just the wireless connection. I have tried a few things, but I really am not sure what more to do.

    Well...about an hour or so since I got your response, and it has been running absolutely fantastic...I am still a bit pessimistic, but so far, my connections has been unbelievably faster and much better. My connection speed was set to 300MBPS, which is the max for my router...My connection is about 100MBPS and so I set it to 145MBPS and since problems at all!!!!

    My weekend has been a drag, trying to troubleshoot this, and to finally have it working, with just a quick desperate question out there, makes me a very happy person..thanks again...I am crossing my fingers that tommorrow, it will be the same. If not, you may be hearing from me again...for further suggestions...

Just double check in the router settings and see the connection speed (not internet ISP speed), it may be set at 108MBPS and your reciever may only be able to connect at 54MBPS.

Connection is intermitent. I receive signal and it works fine for 5 minutes. Then the signal continues but I do not get internet access netgear wnr1000

Do you have anything else on the network besides your computer? If you do, it may be a conflicting IP address. I was told by the Comcast tech that the WNR1000 doesn't allow additional routers on the same network. Have to upgrade to a WNR3500 for that. When I disconnected my wireless extender, it fixed the problem.

Is netgear compatible with comcast broadband service

Yes the NetGear router is compatible with Comcast. You'll just connect the one 'computer' output from the Comcast box into the WAN input on the NetGear box, and in the outputs from the Router plug it from there to your computer.

I'm trying to connect a netgear wpn 824 to a comcast router with windows 7

You are trying to set up the wireless router with the comcast modem, right ?
You can set up the router manually , without the disc.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the comcast modem only.
If you have the router working already then you just need to add a computer to the network.

Re-Connectivity to Comcast Modem

All you need to do is "MAC ADDRESS CLONING". Access the router's setup page and look for MAC Clone settings. Enable that and clone the mac address of your main PC. After that, perform a power cycle. Turn off the router then the modem. Wait for 30 seconds then power on the modem first, wait for all the lights to go solid then power on the router. That should do it.

Ethernet connection gets disconnected very often

If none of the router jacks give you a solid connection and you maintain one when you directly connect to the modem, it is time to replace the router.

Netgear wireless router installation

Light blinking on Netgear router means that the wireless is "working". Mine did the same thing. I had reset my network to 192.168.2.x instead of the default 192.168.1.x. Since this is usually on a diferent subnet it logically is on a different network and will not connect. From your post it sounds like you know what you are doing. If the config software for the router loaded correctly then there should be an icon in your Network path that shows the router. Double clicking should let you in by default. Set the IP address to your local network and try again.
