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?

Re: Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working
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.

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?
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....
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.
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.)
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.
