Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

Tropical Storm Fay has confused my router!

Hi. I've had a lot of recent blackouts lately from Fay and now I can't use my router! When the power came back on, I noticed that my devices were no longer able to find my network, so I reset my Westell modem for at&t dsl and my d-link router. When I opened up my browser, at&t wanted to know my login information, which I had forgotten, so I reset the password but I still wasn't able to get on the internet with my router connected to the computer. When the modem was only connected to my computer then I could get internet, otherwise when the router was connected to the modem and my computer I couldn't. I decided to change to a netgear router but the problem still persists. I told both of them my password change and that it's PPPoE. What's the deal?! Thanks. I read about you guys in the paper.

If you have reset the modem then it will be un-bridge already. the configuration you need to the router is Automatic Configuration-DHCP and not PPPoEand change the local ip address of the router to to avoid ip adress conflict between router and modem.

I have an E1000 Linksys. It stopped working after the storm. I uninstalled the software, rebooted my computer and unplugged and waited for 2 minutes after nplugging the modem and router. No such luck. ...

Your Linksys most likely been zapped by the storm.
It pays to connect your computer equipment into a power surge protection power board to protect the equipment from storm and power surges.

Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

Not coming on at all. lost it when rolling blackouts during freeze

most likely its a goner when rolling black outs occur you can bet on there being power surges so to prevent that from happening again you should always have all your important and sensitive equipment connected thru a surge protector and not a power strip or the wall protection and prevention save lots of headaches :) i hope this helps

Can't connect to the Internet via router

Well, this is a very generalized problem that others have, so i'll give you some starting tips. If you can connect when you plug your computer directly into the modem, then it sounds like your modem is bonding to your computer. There are a couple ways to fix this. The easiest is to ask your router to clone your MAC addess (not to be confused with a mac computer, a MAC address is a 10 digit code that uniquely identifies your computer on a network). See the attached image to find where it should be. c26d492.jpg
Once you set it to clone your machines mac address, unplug the computer from the modem, and plug in the router. If this doesn't fix it, please comment back and we'll try some other things. If it does, then give a good rating :-)
