Hi
i have 2 desktop and 1 laptop with netgear wired router which used to work fine but sometimes i get problems and just unplug the internet cable from the router n jsut plug it directly into my desktop and replug it back later on... but now when i replug into router the computers cant seem to connect to the internet but they seem to recognize the network but the internet wont work when connected from the router.... if i unplug n plug directly to desktop it works... ( i dont know if i wrote that clear so ill draw dis )
desktop ---> internet = work
desktop ---> router -----> internet = dont work

1st comp = Mine = desktop window 7
2nd = desktop window xp
3rd = laptop window vista
dont know if it matters but just putting more info...

Have you unplugged the power to your router for a few seconds and plugged it back in?

On your PC - Click Start -> in the Search box type cmd -> in the list, right click cmd and click "Run as Admin" -> in the box that pops up type ipconfig /all and hit Enter. Do this when it is connected to the router.

I am interested in the IPv4 address and Default gateway.

i was able to make it work by pressing the reset button on my modem...
but when connecting to my network using the laptop i found a network called netgear assuming it was my network resetted and unsecured ??? so do i need to reconfigure my router? or is it not my network ?

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

It doesn't now, but I was curious what IP address you were getting and where you were getting it from.

If you reset your router then it wiped out any security you had set up on it. So you need to go back in and setup the security again.

the router keeps losing the connection but when i plug it directly to the comp it works again Are you talking about wireless is losing the connection? or the router is losing connection to the modem? did you reset the modem or router?

I am a little confused as to what is losing connection. Which PC is it btw?

Many of these DSL modems are setup to work as routers. Even if it has only the internet and ethernet ports on the back it may. If you check your router what is the address it gets for the internet/WAN? If it is something like 192.168.2.x then more than likely this is the problem. Hook up directly to the modem and enter the default gateway address in your browser. If you should get a login window. Should be a default password like 1234. Turn off the DHCP and switch the modem to bridge mode and your connection should be stable.
