Question about NetGear FR114P Router

Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working

I have a Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 hub and cannot get the FR114P to pass DHCP requests or internet traffic to the hub. My cable modem is connected to the FR114P and when i plug directly into the FR114P everything works fine. I get an ip address and i can connect to the net just fine. when i then plug in the hub to the FR114P then my pc into the hub i get nothing. I can't even ping the router. I know the hub works and can pass info through it. Do i need to turn on port forwarding or create static routes?

    I tried a new straight- through cable and that did not seem to make a difference. WHen i plug the router into the hub the port on the hub does not even light up (connectivity or activity). But i know the the ports are good and have tested them. Its very strange because i have used older model netgear hubs in the past and never had an issue. Maybe i just bought a bad hub? But that doesn't make sense since i can plug two pcs into the hub and they can communicate fine. Its just when i try to pass dhcp or http through the router to the hub.

    Sorry for the late response i have been traveling. I got home and tried port 8 then set the hub to uplink, and it works great. I was really just over thinking the problem, thanks for all the help!

DNeser, Port forwarding and static routes isn?t the route to go down to fix this issue. I have an FR114 in a similar configuration and yours should work as well. -When connecting a hub to a router you should be using a certified, standard Ethernet cable, not a crossover. Make sure it?s certified for at least 100 Mbps. -If you are using port 8 on the hub to connect to the router make sure the Normal/Uplink button is set to Normal. -Are the Link and 100 Mbps LED green on both the hub and router ports you use to connect? If not try a known good cable; if that doesn?t work try different ports. Let us know how things work out and please don?t forget to rate this post.

    Did you try port 8 on your hub? Try changing Normal / Uplink button to the opposite of what it is currently set to.

    What about the LEDs on the router, anything there?

Won't connect to internest.


first there should be 2 cables connected the device.
1) power adapter
2) ethernet cable from either a dsl modem or a cable modem connected to the wan connector
with most cable modem service its usually dhcp meaning you are always connected to the internet
with some there is ppoe connection where a user name and password is used to make a connection to be on the internet with the dsl modem
there are some dsl companies that are dhcp just like the cable modem companies.
with the ethernet cable connected the wan port on your router there should be some kind of activity light on the router but check with the type connection from your dsl or cable internet provider. also you will need a second ethernet cable to connect your computer to setup and configure the wireless settings and wep protection.
need more info?

How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem


leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

3 vlans, data,1; data 2,;voip,5. Ports carry voice tagged, and data. currently Windows 2000 DHCP server lives on Vlan 1 (AND WORKS). Need to upgrade. When we test the new servers we are unable to make both...


Here's what you need to do:

First, be sure to assign an ip address(in the proper subnet) to each VLAN.

Second, use the ip helper-address command in the context of each VLAN, the address used should be the address of the DHCP server

Third, Add a scope for each additional VLAN on the DHCP server.

The switch will route the DHCP request to the proper server based on the ip helper-address command parameter and based on the ip address of the VLAN that is passed tot he server, a DHCP address in the proper subnet is automatically configured.

Here is a sample:

ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR# configure
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR(config)# vlan 33
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR (vlan-33)#ip address 192.168.33.254/24
ProCurve Switch 3500yl-24G-PWR (vlan-33)# ip helper-address 10.1.2.250

Limited or no conncetivity?


Seems to be issue with the switch. If you can get internet after bypassing the switch then it is for sure an issue with the switch. try connecting the cable to other ports of the switch.

If it still does not work then it is time for you to replace the switch.

Rate it,if it helps.

To un-bridge my modem


You're talking about just hooking your PC directly into the cable/dsl modem?
If so, you should be able to just unplug the LAN cable from the router and hook it into your modem. 
(Most XP/Vista installs are set to seek out a DHCP server to get an IP. Your home router was your DHCP server before, hence the 192.168.x.x addresses.)

Open Port 81 on Netgear Switch


Actually you need to open the port on the cable modem / router. Switches just pass the packets along.

Internet connection


Connect a computer to one of the lan ports 1-4.
Connect the adsl modem to "internet" or "wan" port of hub.
Open the hub's configuration page in your browser, usually this is http://192.168.1.1 Under Setup->Basic Setup, set the configuration for "Internet Connection Type " to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP". Under Network Setup, enable the hub's internal DHCP server so your lan hosts can get their ip's from the hub. Each local computer should have DHCP enabled. Your adsl modem must support DHCP for this to work, some do not. If it still doesnt work, try setting "PPPoE" instead of DHCP.
