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.
