I have a Netgear Wireless N modem and router (DGN 2000) and an AirLive WL 5460AP.


My PC set-up:

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit;160 and 500 CB HD's
Intel Core i5-2300 CPU; 2.8 GHz; 4 GB RAM

Two weeks ago, the signal from the AirLive started to show the yellow arrow mark and we did not have internet connectivity from AirLive. We still have connectivity from Netgear. I could not fix it with the usual power off/checking ADSL cables, etc.

I followed the AirLive manual and also got hold of a guide that indicated how one should reset the AirLive to factory settings. I did that.
I then tried manually to set the IP address, but no luck.

This is my usual set-up at home: (The AirLive supplies wireless internet to a part of my house)


To make it easier for me to see the routers, I moved everything closer together:


Currently the following lights are working on AirLive:
• Power
• Link/Act
• LAN2

Although the signal is strong, there is no internet connectivity.


Trying “Troubleshooter” gives me this response.


I trust that someone can help me

You say you restored the Air Live to factory settings. This will also have reset any passwords and security on it to factory defaults - have you re-set the network security password ?  I presume you have security on the Netgear router, whether WEP or WPA2-PSK, in which case you need to set the Air Live to your network key. I apologise if I am stating the obvious, but it is surprising how often the obvious gets overlooked !


I have used a couple of Netgear routers, and the IP address for the router is usually, with everything else on the network incrementing the last digit by one. If you go into your router control panel, by typing its IP address into your browser, somewhere - normally in the 'Maintenance' section - you should see an entry for 'Attached devices' or something similar. This will give you the IP address of all the devices connected to the Netgear router and there should be one for the Air Live there. If there isn't, you will see something like 'Desktop -; Laptop -, etc.' and you can assign the next number in the sequence to the Air Live.


Hope this helps,
