    Do you mean that you cannot get to it in the browser? I'm not sure what NetGear's normal IP is, but it is usually http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 can you ping either address?

    well that tells you something.:)

    Check hardware to make sure your physically connected, and if you know you are, try resetting the router.

    well that means its not working ;)

    I assume that you have it set up as a gateway, so it is physically there and should be pingable.

    well if all fails you could probably just reset it (if you remember all your settings) ... could also try just unplugging it and waiting a few secs and plugging it back in (kinda like a nice reboot).

    sounds like you are not going through the router at all. did we mix up the cables from the BB modem?

    Did you configure DHCP corretly w/ a range of internal ips to hand out? If not it may be like celticfan11 said ...

    you configure DHCP in the router....
    give the lan ips a range from 192.168.0.X x is the range of numbers u can change

    i had this issue and i couldnt connect to anything andi got a random IP from nowhere which was the windows dhcp ip

    celticfan the IP you are talking about is 169.254.x.x and that is assigned when windows cannot find the DHCP server.

    I think his issue is different.
