I am able to connect to the net with just the modem and an ethernet cable. However, I have trouble switching to a wireless connection with a wireless router. The PC detects the NETGEAR wireless network and is able to connect to it. I am also able to access the router configuration page (192.168.0.1)but that's all it can do.
On the router configuration page (192.168.0.1), when I click on the "router status" it says that it is "trying to connect to server".
I have gone through netgear's troubleshooting help but nothing seems to work. Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer any kind of help.
Re: Ethernet connection works but can't go wireless
Hi I am Deepak And Will make sure that Your Wireless connection goes great .
Your router is wgr614 .. Depending on the model that whether it is v5 or v6 . you have to make sure that wireless option should be selected , which is advance wireless setting's:
make sure that atleast for the time being there should be no mac filtering or wep/wpa enabeled on router : then do the power cycle of network . again make sure that on computer no firewall or anti virus is enabeled.
if this does not works then hard reset the router and reconfigure it again .

Re: Ethernet connection works but can't go wireless
This is your router trying to connect to the modem, ensure that the routers wireless connection is enabled and see if your router when you access it is giving your pc an ip address.
Make sure DHCP is enabled for automatic ip address allocation.
Run this programme, click Start>run then type
ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
This will flush any old addresses given by the modem.

Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.
you might have a modem with an ethernet connection to connect to the net .
if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb broadband modem which can work on a desktop also once you recieve the modem just insert the modem into a usb port and follow the prompts you might need some drivers for the usb broadband modem which can be supplied by the ISP internet provider
You would connect from the output of the Vonage modem to the wireless router and then from the wireless router you can connect Ethernet to your desktop if you have one and then anything else can run off of the wireless.
get a wireless router / cable modem combo provided by companies such as netgear then you would connect the Vonage to the router through one of the available Ethernet ports and any other Ethernet connections to the router as well and anything else wireless would work wireless.
Hi, forget about the USB connection since you wanted to use a router for your wireless connection. Contact Comcast asnd make sure they assist you in making your computer connect to the Internet using the ethernet connection because you are going to use the ethernet connection for the modem-router connection. Once your computer is online with the ethernet connection, you can connect your Dlink router to the modem and configure it for Internet connection. There will be more steps before you can use the wireless connection. Just make sure you can get online with ethernet connection first.
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.
Make sure your modem or router is compatible with XBOX. I think Microsoft has a lost of working modems and routers. If this is all clear, connect the eth.cable to the modem/router. Power up the modem FIRST then the xbox. All this without any cd/dvd in the tray. Usually as simple as that...
