Please go to http://www.routerlogin.net/, and login with:
  • Username = admin

Then look for the Wireless / security option to get the wireless / security password / key / passphrase.

That does not look like you have the router connected. Is the router connected to your modem, and the router connected to a computer? Thanks.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

what i have is a digital broadband box that has a phone hook up, from that a connection goes to the router, and the modem is hooked up to the computer.

Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 5 years ago.
I'm not sure how you setup your network, but the Internet modem must be connected to the Netgear router in order to use wireless Internet. Do you have a any wireless computer/laptop? Thanks.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

no

 

Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 5 years ago.
Can you connect the modem to the router's Internet/WAN port, then the computer to one of the router's network ports. Then try again: go to http://www.routerlogin.net/, and login with:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password

Then look for the Wireless / security option to set / get the wireless / security password / key / passphrase.

Thanks,

well i tryed it didnt work because of the phone box that comcast gave me in order to have a land line. the info on this box is an RCA by Thompson model# XXXXX does this give you any idea on what to do. i have a modem, router, computer, and that box listed above and its all wired together somehow.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 5 years ago.
Let's try this: connect the modem to the router's Internet/WAN port, then the computer to one of the router's network ports; make sure all devices have power adapters connected and power lights are on. Then use a paper clip to press & hold the tiny reset button/hole located on the RAC modem for about 10 seconds, then wait a few minutes and see if you can access the Internet on the computer.

no dice! still won't connect.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 5 years ago.
This is complicated. You can try the following: click Start->All programs->Accessories->Command prompt, then type ipconfig /all and press Enter, then note the MAC address of the Local Area Network connection (the one for 76.119.60.1 ). Now, connect the modem to the router's Internet/WAN port, then the computer to one of the router's network ports. Then go to http://www.routerlogin.net/, and login with:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
And look for all the settings to get the option to clone your PC/Computer's MAC address (or enter the MAC address you've noted above if needed).

If that does not work, the comcast modem prevents you from using the router/multiple computers, so you can contact comcast.

Thanks,
