I typed that into my browser, it asked me for a user name and password, but it didnt like... " username of admin and the password XXXXX password "
"If your settings are set up in the Netgear router and we reset it, you will be without Internet connection. If your settings are set up in the DSL modem, then resetting the Netgear will not be a problem."
you're worring me... i am connected directly to the router, along with one other computer, a printer, and the other device (An LED sign) with the fixed LED device.
If I lose my internet conection, I lose your help, and the customer is really pissed! So then what would i do?
Sorry bout that! and sorry for the delay....
Yes did what you said step by step... I connected directly and the default gateway was 188.8.131.52
But... I just realized this is a cable modem! Sorry. Does that throw a kink into this plan? Hopefully not
254 didn't work, but 192.168.1.4 did... it gave me the netgear smart wizard... did steps hit apply, and got.. "please do ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew and enter new ip in the browser in order to gain the GUI again if LAN IP subnet will be changed"
did that... i think it worked... give me a few minutes to check things out
thats what i thought, but when try connecting with my laptop, it asks for a security key?
so I set a WEP password.. the passphrase was dino22, and it generated a key... do have to enter the key as the password XXXXX log into the network?
I know I'm getting my money's worth from you, and I appreciate your help very much
