Either read the instructions that came with the netgear router or check their websitte for more info. If the Router was meant to be used for the internet it will have instructions.

Just a guess ....
Most of these usits are set up via the web browser - set your IP settings to DHCP and set everything to auto (server assigned).
go into the command prompt : Start-run-cmd
type in ipconfig /renew and you should get new IP settings - normally look like:
IP 192.168.1.---
Sub 255.255.255.0

You can then enter the IP of the router into web brouser:
normally http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (it should tell u that in the manual).

From there you should be able to configure the router to use your account settings for the ISP you are using.

Once settings are complete - the workstations should work by setting them all to DHCP.

Windows 95 has no problem seing windows XP shares as long as you log on to it with a valid users account - that is the same user as one that has been set up in XP.
This also applies to Win98/ Me / Win2K/ other XP boxes.

for the XP box to see the Win95 machine - make sure u have the File and Print sharing for microsoft added in the Network options and that you have a folder or drive shared.
