I can't get my Netgear wireless-G router WGR614 to work with my comcast

By shentaoba ·
Hello everyone. I spent the last two days reading posts & trying to get my wireless router to connect to the internet. First let me say what I did:
? Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
? Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
? Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
? Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
? Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
? Boot the computer.

Tried to do the MAC address thing...even tried my old linksys..

Read all of the info here and connectted to the post..plus tons of other posts. http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-1035-0.html?forumID=101&threadID=302923&tag=rbxccnbdisc1

Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to give..i have no clue what im doing wrong here..I can provide a screenshot showing the router/PC connection with a big red 'no connect' vista X to the internet on the other side.

Simple process

First, connect the PC to the modem with a CAT5 cable and insure it all works that way. Disconnect power from the router and do a factory reset by holding the reset button for one minute. If the PC works fine on the cable, remove the CAT5 from the PC and insert in the router WAN connector. Use a CAT5 cable from port one to the PC and then power up the router. Do the install from the disk for the router and you should be all set. It really is that simple but faults can occur, usually in the router. Once the PC sees the router and can access the internet, then begin working with the wireless devices and don't for get to add security and protection along with MAC address filtering and turn off the SSID broadcast.

Security settings

by mjd420nova In reply to Thank you

My older unit, a Belkin has 128 bit WEP. I use that and the MAC address filtering option. I've also installed a number of grounded foils located near the antennas, one to direct the signal into the home and enhance the signal in low signal areas and another to block the signal from emanating outside the home. If I can't get a signal outside then I have no worries about the security from others trying to get into my router. Also, turning off the SSID broadcast will stop others from even knowing that a signal even exists. Glad I could help.

Does your Internet connection work?

by CG IT In reply to I can't get my Netgear w ...

the output only shows your computer network card config, but doesn't really tell much except that the default gateway which should be your wireless router and that you have a funky looking DNS server adddress.

The router is what provides your connection so it's that output that's needed. you can X out the last three octets of the address and last octet of the mask.
