Switches :: New Netgear N300 Router Will Not Connect

Jan 29, 2011

I just bought a new Netgear N300 router to go along with the Mediacom cable internet I just signed up for. I can plug the ethernet cable straight from the modem into my computer and get internet. Unfortunately this only works after I run the windows diagnostic to correct the errors that wont allow me internet access (unable to connect to IP address, lack of DNS server) but eventually I get access. The instruction then tell me to run the ethernet from the modem to the router and then another cable to my computer from the router. When I do this, I lose all internet access. I thought I just had to instal the router using the provided disk but it never gets past the internet connection test.I have tried to provide the correct IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and dns servers like requested but clearly I am messing something up.

Adding Device To Netgear N300 Router?

Oct 20, 2011

I'm trying to connect a latop (Packard Bell - Easy Note) onto a Netgear N300 wireless router (WNR2000v3).I have already connected a separate laptop which is working fine but the Packard Bell (about 6 years old) wont connect, it will detect my wireless network but then asks for a "Network Key".I'm assuming this the same password that I set up when I configured the router but when I enter it I get the following message:The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configeration. This can be entered as 5 or 13ascii characters or 10 or 16 hexadecimal characters".

Netgear N300 Wireless Router To Stream Netflix?

Mar 18, 2012

I am using a Netgear N300 wireless router to stream Netflix movies to a Samsung Blu-ray player with wireless LAN. My problem is that some of the movies are not watchable because of rebuffering. About every two or three minutes into a film it rebuffs. Is this because of my equipment, my set-up, or is it just the nature of the beast?

How To Set Up A Netgear N300 Router For A Closed Home Wireless Network

Apr 8, 2012

We operate a home office network (workgroup) of 6 older PCs running Windows XP SP3.It's a Windows based network using a designated "home" PC as a server, and until recently we were using ethernet cables and a hub/switch for sharing files which worked well because we only share small document files, no music or video.The workgroup does not have a shared internet connection, we don't want or need one for what we do, although the individual PC's can connect to the web using USB dongles just for checking e-mail.Recently the ethernet hub died and I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to wireless file sharing.None of the PCs have inbuilt wireless adapters so I bought a D-Link USB wireless adapter for each PC.I also bought a Netgear N300 router, thinking that this was suitable entry level equipment for wireless file sharing. Now I'm not so sure.So far I was unable to install the router on the "home" PC because the installation CD seems to assume that the router will be used for sharing an internet connection and does not seem to offer an installation option without a standalone modem. How to install this type of router to create a closed home wireless network without a shared internet connection.

Print From HP LJ P1006 Wirelessly When Hookup To Netgear N300 Router?

Dec 23, 2012

I recently bought a practically brand new HP LJ P1006 with an extra brand new HP brand toner cartridge for $1 at a local auction. I have tested it, and it works perfectly, so all is fine there. I would like to know if it is possible to print wirelessly to it at all. I do not have it hooked up to a computer right now, we only have two laptops, so there is not a desktop to have it hooked up to in order to put it on a home network (I believe that is how that works).

I do have a Netgear N300 router with a USB port however, and I was thinking I may be able to do something there.

Is it possible to hook this printer into my router via USB and then be able to print to it from our latptops? If so, how would we go about setting that up to do so?

Netgear N300 - Configuring Extender And Router For Limited Access

Mar 26, 2013

I have a Netgear N300 and am using a linksys wrtg54g flashed with dd-wrt as an extender. I would like to setup my wireless network to limit various devices (laptops, iPod touch, etc) to certain times of the day.

How do I configure both devices to limit connectivity? I've got it down pretty much on the NetGear using a MAC address filter and scheduling the services, but I am not sure how to get the extender to do the same.

Netgear N300 Router / Windows 7 - Setting Up Network Drive

Mar 23, 2013

I've setup a home network using Netgear N300 wireless router (using Windows 7).

I'm trying to get one of my hard drives to be available on the network, so I went to the "sharing" tab of the HD's properties setting and allowed sharing on the HD and turned off password protection so that you don't need a password to access the HD.I also set the permissions to give full control, change, and read access to the "Everyone" group.

From another computer in the network, I tried connecting to the network HD but ultimately got "Access denied" despite the fact that I gave full control to "Everyone".How do I get the computer to be able to connect to the shared HD?

Netgear N300 / Cisco 2950 - Port Forwarding With No Router

Jul 9, 2013

I have been having problems with my router. I have a Net gear N300 v2, but I am not asking for support with said router. Forwarding network traffic from the Internet to a server and then have it properly re-routed. I have never done this sorta thing before, but I want to go into a career in I.T. when I'm older. As a side note, I have already figured out that ditching the router requires to have a software DHCP server, which I am using Windows Server 2008 Data center and it's built in role as DHCP server.

DNS is also configured. The modem a Motorola Surf Board is connected directly to a Cisco Catalyst 2950, and that connects all of the rest of the network, also via a 3Com SUper Stack Hub, and a little 8-port HP Advance Stack J2610A, which connects to all of my wireless AP.

Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem Router Model DGN 2200 - Need To Reboot Every Day

Oct 21, 2012

Nearly every morning/evening I have to re-boot my router to get internet access. Netgear N300 ADSL2+ modem router Model DGN 2200 (had about a year), Windows 7 64bit Home premium Laptop connected wirelessly, Windows 7 64Bit Home Premium desktop connected by LAN cable. ISP BT Internet. Until recently this set up has been working OK with occasional loss of interent access and need to re-boot router. The internet light has been showing red on those occasions. Over the last two weeks I have found that when I turn one of computers on although all lights on router are green I have no internet access. I have to re-boot, then all is OK until the next day when I have to re-boot again. My phone line appears OK with no noise on line, no reported problems on BT broadband staus. The thing that puzzles me is that the lights are all green on the router yet my networking icon on the pc shows an exclammation mark and 'no internet access' and I do not have access to net.The wireless connection is OK with excellent strength.

N300 Connecting ADS2 Wireless Router To Ethernet

Feb 8, 2012

I have Netgear N300 (DGN3500) Wireless Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem router.The Router has a phone socket (that is RJ 11 socket) to connect to the Internet. But in my home I have Ethernet socket on the wall. That means the Internet is coming through Ethernet cable. How to connect my ADSL2 Modem router (with the phone socket) to the Ethernet? I bought a ISDN-DSL (8p4c-6p4c) connecting cable and it is not working when the router and Ethernet are connected..I tested my router at one of my friend's place where ADSL connection is available and it was working when directly connected to ADSL line. Unfortunately at my home I don't have ADSL but Ethernet connection.

Netgear 7550 B90 - Upgrade Gateway From 2wire Wireless G?

Oct 2, 2012

I have at&t DSL.I NEEDED to upgrade my wireless gateway from the 2wire wireless-G gate way that I had.I also have a Netgear WNDR-4000 750N Wireless Dual Band Router.

I know I needed an at&t modem to run my DSL, so I purchased (before reading reviews) a Netgear 7550 Wireless Gateway from at&t (they did not have any "N" single user modems (if there is such a thing).I have read through other posts that it is possible to connect the two and I would not need the 7550 for anything else but a modem (disabling broadcast).

The question is ... do I REALY need to do all this or can I just get away with the 7550?Or will the Netgear WNDR-4000 750N Wireless Dual Band Router, if installed and used, fix some of the issues that other 7550 users have said in other posts?

Wireless ... I have 3 gaming systems, two PC's, a tablet and 4 smartphones.I will be using 3 wired ports ... 1 gaming system, PC, and a blue-ray.

And yes, my 2wire wireless-g gateway ran all these ... not efficiently or reliably, but they all did run.

I have not received the Netgear 7550 yet, just trying to get some opinions on which setup would be better.

Netgear N300 Dgn2200v1 Adsl2+ Modem Router / Extending Wifi Range For Home Network?

Dec 11, 2012

how to properly configure 2 different hardware devices to extend the current wifi signal of my home network.I'm using a Motorola SBG6580 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem as my primary access point (AP) and a Netgear N300 DGN2200v1 ADSL2+ modem router which will function "behind" the SBG6580 in repeater mode. I previously had DSL for my internet connectivity but recently switched to broadband cable for faster speeds.Due to the layout of my home, I cannot physically connect the Netgear router to the Motorola modem via ethernet cable and need both devices to communicate wirelessly. I have already done extensive reading on this subject and best practices suggest that, whenever possible, both units should be the same brand/manufacturer. The Netgear appliance does have the capability of being configured as a repeater so if I don't have to buy a "network extender" that would be my preference.I understand that both units must be configured to have the same SSID, subnet, wireless channel and security encryption. In repeater mode the Netgear router can't be configured to use WPA2-PSK so I need to use WEP instead.

Routers / Switches :: Connecting Uverse 2Wire3801 HGV To 2Wire 1701 HG?

Jan 25, 2011

How can I connect and configure a new AT&T Uverse 2Wire 3801HGV gateway with an older 2wire 1701HG gateway as a router to add more IP addresses in a home network? The 3801 currently feeds a wired lan through three 16 and 8 port switches, and feeds way too many wireless users too. Plus, the 3801 also feeds the VOIP phone system and TV (non HD). I now know the 3801 has a max of 10 or 12 IP addresses that it can handle (where was that little detail in the AT&T material?). The 1701 can and has fed more than 50 wireless and wired connections easily for years. So, what needs to be done make the 1701 feed the wired and wireless lan from the 3801 gateway, as well as let the 3801 continue to feed the VOIP, TV, and some of the wireless lan needs at the same time?

Netgear N300 Loses Connection

Mar 26, 2013

Mediacom is my cable provider. They came out a few months ago and thought the problem was their Motorola modem. They replaced it with an RCA (Thomsen) which worked great for about 3 months.Now (3/13) I am losing my connection at least once a day.I started to download the new Netgear Firmware update, but in the middle of that, you guessed it, the connection dropped. So now my router is useless. There's probably a way to reset it, but I haven't found that yet. And so far the Netgear phone # is locked inside the router somewhere! I'm hard-wired to the RCA modem now, so we'll see. I have a feeling, after reading the previous thread, that my connection will be fine.I have my own cable modem, needed for a previous cable provider, and a new Netgear N600 2-frequency router.

Netgear N300 Dual Band Route Lag?

Jun 25, 2011

I have recently purchased a netgear N300 Dual Band router. I am getting some problems with it! I replaced my bog standard belkin 54g router (which never dropped out, never lagged), you just plugged it in, stuck your isp settings in and away you went. Not the same story with this netgear, it promises to give you a better connection in game, but since installing it, all games lag, my laptop is slow browsing, it is getting to the point where we cannot game at all and I am giving up waiting for websites to load! My xbox is connected with ethernet my laptop is wireless, but both lag. Is it to do with the router settings? I am running windows 7 on the laptop, windows xp on another desktop pc, 2 xboxes, one wired one wireless and a wii wireless. All lag!

Wireless :: Netgear N300 Internet Access Is Disconnected

Oct 10, 2011

I got 3 windows 7 pc's at home. IP V6 and IP 4 are enabled. I setup my wireless system and it worked 100%. After 3 months I add a LAN cable to two of my PC's. This is when it all started. My internet browsing became very very slow. When i shutdown the one machine it become fast again. I did the following. Pulled the LAN cable and it was still slow. I then put the cable back and disabled the Wi-Fi and it still was very slow. I rested the defaults and restored my old backup and it still slow. Now I can get any access to the internet any more. I the disconnected the netgear router and take a cheap router with only LAN ports and it work 100%. All the above i did with many router and server reboots.

Setting Up Internet Connection With Netgear N300 USB Adapter?

Jun 8, 2011

I built my first computer today (woot!) but I'm having issues using my netgear N300 usb adapter to access the internet.

I am using a DLink router but for some reason I am getting some weird issues.

First of all, after using the netgear usb adapter, my mac address is something like E0-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx with the xx being the other numbers. Is having a macaddress starting with E0 wrong? All the other 5 devices on my router have mac addresses starting with 00.

Secondly, I am getting a 169.xxxxxx ip address. This is really starting to bother me because I can't set it up using DHCP.
