Tip & How-To about NetGear WNR2000 Wireless Router

How to set up a Netgear WNR2000

First, take your router and the cables out of the packaging. there should only be 3 cables. Take the yellow cable and plug one end into the router in the yellow box on the back, and the other end into your modem in the Ethernet port. The blue one goes into your computer, where there is a box with two holes for screws. The final one goes into a power outlet. Then enter the routers ip address into the address bar, which is http://www. A login screen will appear, and the username is admin, and the password is either 'pass' or 'password'.
Finally, set up your basic settings and wireless settings by selecting those headings at the side. The, just sync up your Wi-Fi devices and there you are.

I need to know where to plug the big yellow phone cord. One end goes in the top plug in the back of the router and where does the other end go? In the back of the motorola motem? What else is supposed to be plugged into the back of my router?

The cord you are referring to is a CAT5 network cable. The color isn't important, but they usually ship the routers with color cords to help with the installation. Typically you would have the following setup:

1. A CAT5 network cable that runs from your broadband modem TO your Belkin Wireless Router in the "Internet" port. (Port "a" in the diagram)
2. Now plug another CAT5 network cable in to the back of your computer's Network Interface Cord TO one of the remaining ports on your Belkin Wireless (Any of the port "b" in the diagram).


However, you will need to run the configuration software that come with your router.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

I followed the CD instructions for connecting the router to my modem, and I am unable to get a connection. I took the thick yellow ethernet cable and connected one end to my PC, and the other end to the router ethernet connection. Then, I took the thinner yellow cable and connected one end to the modem and the other end to the internet connection on the router. Nothing is working. Please help. Thank You, Ms Hunter

Contact your Internet Service Provider (DSL or cable) and let them know you're hooking up a router to your modem. They may have disabled the router feature in the modem and will need to identify it on their system for it to work correctly - they should walk you through the process (it's free). The thinner yellow cable you mentioned - is it a USB cable? Sorry, I've never heard of such a cable unless it's USB, Ethernet (the thick cable), or a phone line cable - the cables used for a network.

how do i hook up my belkin f5d7230-4 router to hughes net internet when there is only one ethernet port?

Connect that one port to your Belkin WAN (Internet)connector (Yellow Port). The other ports go to other computers, to their Broadband RJ45 connectors.
Here's from the manual:
1. Unplug your existing modem’s power supply.
Find the cable connecting your modem and computer.
Unplug it from the modem and plug it into the gray port
on the Belkin Router.
If you are replacing an existing router, find the cable
connecting the computer and old router. Disconnect it from
the old router and plug it into the gray port on the new router
2. Connect the new cable (provided in the box) to the yellow
port on the Router. Plug the other end into the modem.

3. Plug in your modem’s power supply. Wait 60 seconds for the
modem to start up.
Plug the Router’s power supply into a wall outlet, and the
other end into the black port on the Belkin Router.
As the Router wakes up, lights will come on; recheck your
connections if the “power” and one of the “wired” lights
are not lit up in green after 20 seconds.
4. Locate the CD in this guide and insert it into your computer
The Setup Assistant should appear automatically.
If it doesn’t, open the CD in My Computer (Windows®)
or the Finder (Mac OS® X) and double-click on the
“Setup Assistant” icon

cannot use model #f5d8233-4v3

If you have their provided cable modem, you would use a crossover ethernet cable to connect the router in between their modem and your PC... First thing power off everything, disconnect the ethernet cable from y our PCs NIC card and plug it into the internet port (usually yellow) on the router, from the routers end, choose a LAN port on the router and connect an ethernet cable in it, then take the other end of the cable you just plugged into the router and plug it into your PCs NIC card... Now within your OS you will have to change the default gateway settings to reflect the routers IP address (user defined IP address) and then you should be set.... Let me know if it works and how else I can help you....
