I have recently tried to install a Netgear WNDR3700n wireless router on my Home Network. As this router has no adsl modem I was obliged to use my ISP supplied Fritzbox 7170 wireless modem/router by turning on its 'modem only' mode. I then shut everything down, made all the connections, rebooted into XP and finished configuring the router interface. However, no Internet. ipconfig showed everything ok: new IP address, DHCP enabled, Netgear default gateway and DNS server. I was able to ping remote domains without any problem. Pinging remote IP addresses gave me 'destination net unreachable'. Nslookup, on all remote addresses returned:
Can't find server name for address 192.168.1.1: Non-existent domain
Default servers are not available Server: Unknown

Typing a domain name into the browser brought me to the Fritzbox login interface. Anybody know what is going on here? Thanks.

Modem is messed up. It is routing all traffic to itself. Call your ISP for modem reconfigure.
