I cannot connect my Netgear WNR2000 directly to my modem, using even the correct wires and cords. I can physically connect, but the router just doesnt pick up internet straight from the Modem, like my old Wireless B (Linksys) router.
If I do, I cannot get any internet connection. Wired and Wireless..
I can connect the Netgear router to my old Linksys (Wireless B, for the loss) and get at least wired internet connectivity out of it.


I need to upgrade to Wireless N because of the incapabilities of Wireless B.....
Can I get any help?

Try disconnecting power from your modem, connect the new router, then power on the modem, wait 30 seconds, then power on the router. Some modems have a very long memory of the MAC address of the attached device, and this should reset it.

Very Very Correct ;)
Sorry for the late response. Didnt see this til today.
Thats what I had to do, but my modem had a battery that I didnt feel like removing, so I had Comcast power cycle it for me. I got it set up before you answered, btw....
Got P'd and called comcast, to do what I just said I had them do ;)

Thanks again to the guys at the BC Forums!
