Remote Desktop Connection thru Clear Modem and Netgear Router

Q: Remote Desktop Connection thru Clear Modem and Netgear Router

I recently added a Netgear wireless router(WNDR3400) to my Clearwire Modem and my ability to use the Desktop Remote Connection went Bye Bye. This is probably because I had to set my computer to DHCP to get the internet to work. Can any one help me with reestablishing the Remote Desktop Connection? I'm confused by the portforwarding. Do I need to forward the Clear modem to the router and the router to the computer. Do I set the router to Static IP and leave the Clear Modem to DHCP or do I need to set it to Static as well. Any help, Please?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Remote Desktop Connection thru Clear Modem and Netgear Router

You need to portforward (port 3389, I think) on the Netgear router to the computer. Best to assign a static IP, or use address reservation if the Dhcp server has that feature, for the computer.

At our firehouse we have active directory running with about 200 users. Each user has their own login. At our second station we require each user to log in to a computer at station one via Remote Desktop Connection (the physical computer at station two is using a generic, locked down username).

This works fine, but when the user is prompted to enter their credentials, it always says the last user to log in, usually something to the effect of\username. Is there anyway to clear that field so the users do not need to erase the previous username each time?

Thanks in advance. -PJ

but it does involve editting the registry and you would have to make an automated script to run it so not very easy or convenient

I'm wondering maybe someone could help me or make a good suggestion/advise!
I'm little bit worried. I bought wireless netgear dg834gsp ADSL modem router, but i don't have ADSL connection. I have cable connection. Does this mean that my router is unusuable for my PC and my internet connection? Maybe there is some hope to make connection? I don't have any possibilities to change it, because I bought it abroad.

A:netgear dg834gsp ADSL modem router connection problems

You can connect/configure it as an ethernet switch (if it has multiple LAN ports) and wireless access point, but you cannot use it as a router except with ADSL internet service.

I'm trying to establish some kind of network between two computers using a direct modem to modem connection. I know there are some other options out there, but my team and I are specifically looking into this kind of implementation due to certain parameters of the project.

Basically, I want to use software like UltraVNC to be able to control a remote computer with my host computer. Neither computer will have access to the internet and are connected via two external modems. Can anyone give me the step by step procedure for this and how it is done?



A:Remote controlling a desktop through a modem to modem connection

You want 2 modems as in a 56k to a 56k?

Easiest way I can think of for something similar would be 2 NICs and a crossover cable to direct connect the two PCs.

My home setup consists of one desktop computer running Windows 7 Professional (no network).  The ISP cable comes out of the wall, into the cable modem, then out of the cable modem and into the computer.  In this setup, I have always been able (while
traveling) to use MS Remote Desktop on my notebook computer to remotely log in to my home computer.
I recently purchased a NetGear R6400 WIFI router.  This changed my setup at home by introducing the router in between the cable modem and my home computer.  Although the WIFI part of the router is working just fine (by allowing wireless devices
to connect to the Internet), I am no longer able to use my notebook computer while traveling to remotely log in to my home computer use MS Remote Desktop.  I called tech. support at NetGear, and they spent 2-3 hours trying to troubleshoot this issue (by
changing many configuration options on the router), but were ultimately unsuccessful.  They suggested that I contact MS to see whether there are any settings that need to be changed within the Control Panel of Windows 7 in order to fixed this problem. 
I'd appreciate any help with this.

I used to be able to use Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection software from work to access my home computer (running XP Pro). All I needed was my IP address and a login/password.

However, since I have installed and implimented a Belkin wireless router, I cannot use RDC to access my desktop computer. I'm assuming it's because the laptops running off the router share the IP address and RDC can't determine where to remotely connect to.

BUT... am I missing something? Can my home network situation be adjusted to where I could remote in to my desktop computer? Are there settings I can edit? Do I need one or more static IP addresses for this to work?

Hi All

I have a desktop and laptop with windows 7, I want to use RDC from either side using the internet connection. Both machines are connected with same router for internet connection.

For internet, desktop is connected through LAN cable and laptop through WiFi.

Can I use RDC between them without wired connection and using router/internet??

Pls help.


A:Remote Desktop Connection with common router

If they are on the same LAN then all you have to do is enable the remote connection in the Advanced system settings under the Remote Tab and then open RDC and type in the computer name or IP address of the computer you want to connect to/ If you are doing this over the internet then there are several website that explain how to set up the router to forward the connection to a specific PC behind it.

I'm not overly tech savvy, so please consider that when responding.

I have one desktop PC at home, Windows XP, and have a Time Warner wired modem for internet. I work from home and connect to my office computer through Remote Desktop Connection.

I purchased a Roku2 video streaming player and bought a Belkin N150 wireless router in order to get the signal from my desktop computer out to the living area where the Roku is located. The connection with the Roku is perfect. However, my remote desktop connection now disconnects constantly and internet browsing on the local computer is very slow and choppy.

The configuration I used is 1) Belkin ethernet wire from Belkin to back of modem 2) modem ethernet wire from Belkin to computer.

If I remove the Belkin and put everything back the way it was, all is fine ... but, of course, we then have no Roku. I can't imagine that I should have to disconnect the Belkin for me to access my office computer without issues, which in turn prevents those in the living area from using the Roku.

I have spoken to Belkin's customer support, they had me change settings 3 different times. Bottom line is Belkin's CS is script oriented and they have no clue otherwise.

Any thoughts from this forum would be most welcome.

Thanks so much.

A:Belkin N150 router disconnects my remote desktop connection

Make sure you have the latest router firmware; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it. (If you already have done both of these in this order you need not do them again.)

When you get a disconnect do the router (or modem) LEDs give any hint of whether the disconnect is between modem and router or between router and computer?

Consider that either of the ethernet cables may be defective.

So here is my case:


Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together
From a John Will Post


Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

I've gone through various articles, but the problem still occurs.
Steps Taken:
1. Enable Remote Desktop on my Microsoft Surface Pro
2. Went into Linksys EA6500 configuration and have tried the following configurations:
a. Single Port Forwarding external: 8888 internal: 3389 Dest IP: (Surface Pro, which I've also setup as a static IP on the router)
b. Single Port Forwarding external: 3389 internal: 3389 Dest IP:
c. Multiple Port Range 3389 - 3389 Dest IP:

3. Made sure that Windows firewall was not blocking RDP, even tried turning it off.
4. Checked Whatismyip for external IP address
5. On the RDP Android app, I added a new RDP session with the following details:
a.Entered PC Name: External IP, Username
b. Gateway: also tried Gateway:
It will keep erroring out saying: "We couldn't connect to the gateway because of an error. If this keeps happening, ask your admin or tech support for help.
Error code: 0x3000008

A:Problem establishing Remote Desktop connection from RDP Android application to Microsoft Surface Pro on Linksys EA6500 Router

2. b. should be correct, and 5. a. should be good as long as your surface's
local IP is
The only thing I don't see mentioned is if the EA6500 has a firewall turned
on and could it be blocking the connection?
If you have another PC on your local LAN, you can test the connection to
the surface locally, but then use the address instead of the
external address, to see if the problem is your router, or the Surface.  If
it works and external doesn't, it's the router.

So I had my brand new netgear router modem hooked up, I could never get connection to the internet, i have been on the phone with netgear techsupport for like 6 hours total, and i have been on the phone with my internet provider for couple hours, and it still doesnt work.

I used the setup wizard of the netgear to get the ip address, but it would never show up, so talk to the techs at netgear they said i need a id and password to sign on, cause dsl usually needs a username and password, so i call up tech support of my internet provider asking for it, and they said doesnt have, so then tried other things with netgear, nothing worked,

in the netgear manuall it says dat ip address wit the numbers 192.186.-.- is a private ip address and needs to sign up with certain site to get a ip address, but when i asked the netgear tech support he said that it doesnt matter,

the info i got
dynamic ip address
cant obtain ip address

Please if you have any info about this pls let me know im on my 3rd weekend of tryin to set it up and im running out of days to return it, thank you

I'm having problems trying to get remote management to work on a friend's Netgear DG834Gv2 wireless router modem (firmware version 3.01.31).

The router has a dynamic IP address but is permanently powered on so it only changes occasionally, but in addition I have set it to e-mail the status logs to me on a daily basis and can usually monitor any changes to the IP address when the lease expires or if a power outage occurs because the logs include details of port scans by source and destination address.

I can use VNC to access the desktop machine (XP Pro SP2) connected to the router from my PC (also XP2 SP2) by setting port forwarding on ports 5800 and 5900 to the desktop's reserved local IP address ( so I know I'm using the correct WAN IP address.

Remote management is enabled using port 8080 and for testing purposes is set to accept communications from any remote computer. The router is password protected (not the default p/w).

However, when I enter the IP address in to my browser (IE6) the router management console log on screen is not displayed (Page Not Found). I've tried entering the IP address (xx.xx.xx.xx:8080) with and without the http:// prefix and have also tried it with Google Chrome but the result is always the same.

Hi everyone,

Hi, I'm a sorta newbie/intermediate. I don't have professional networking experience. I'm even a little unsure of subnet masks.

I hope my newbie questions won't be too irritating.

A local charity wants to keep costs low by separating out their office computers from the student computers and also a satellite charity in the same building. That makes effectively three separate networks. Right now they have one simple 16 port switch on which all the machines are connected. Both the office computers and the dependent (rather smaller) charity have sensitive info on the computers and the charity boss is adamant that he want the networks unable to see each other so that at least his office computers are in a walled garden, so to speak. There's no real server just a shared folder on one of the desktops (only 3 computers in the main office).

Rather than a real physical separation, which would expensively entail 3 separate internet connections, I was thinking to do this with vlans. Am I on the right track?

Presumably I would configure 3 vlans with different subnets. How might this work with the (rather old) consumer netgear broadband adsl router?

For example, presumably the netgear would have its DHCP server switched off. Then presumably the managed switch would hand out the correct ip addresses for each vlan with its own dhcp server. Is that right? I am supposing that each vlan would have a different subnet, but maybe this isn't necess... Read more

My question is: how can I setup the Huawei modem to the Netgear modem/router so that the Huawei draws the internet directly from the ADSL line and supplies it to the Netgear which, in turn, supplies the internet wirelessy downstairs? I have heard of a bridge mode available of Vista, but I'm not sure whether to take advantage of it.

Please help!

I have a NTL / Virgin Media Cable Modem, Model No: 351000, and i have recently borrowed a Netgear WGR614 version6 from a friend.

I am having problems with connecting everything and i would like to be guided in the right direction.

My Modem is connected to my PC via a USB cable, and also to my phone line.

I have tried the following setup: Connect a new ethernet cable into the spare port at the back of my NTl cable modem and plug that into the LAN Port at the back of the Netgear wireless router, then, connect another ethernet cable from the "internet" port at the back of the wireless router to the PC.

This setup has resulted in the wireless router's "internet" light being active, but the "wireless" light not being on, so, no wireless access point has been created.

I have tried everything possible with a D-Link DL524 wireless router before, to no avail and i would really like this to work as i really need Wi-Fi in my home.

Also, once, when i connected everything with the netgear one, i found the access point, but then my internet didn't work, and i still couldn't (and never have been able to) access the setup at (i have also tried However, i cannot remember the configuration i used.

Please Help.

Thank you for your time

hi there,

i have a speedport router modem (t-online) and a netgear router, so two people can visit the net at the same time (speedport has one slot for one comp only, hence the netgear router.)

there was a sudden electrical problem ant my place and the modem lost all its setup data. i set it up again but i lost the tcp/ip data. i talked to the netgear person on he phone for 55 minutes (no joke) and he couln't get it to work, he told me the data doesn't need to filled in.


here's the thing: i do remember that the tcp/ip data was filled in even though everyone else tells me that i don't need it. i know it works that way, but i just cannot remember what to put into the 2 "dns server" slots. please help me out, if you can. and even though it sounds crazy to do that, i distinctly remember it worked. i'm the wrong person to explain to you why though

thank you !!!

I just got Qwest, before i had Comcast Cable. I have a small FTP server i run for friends (to trade back and forth school documentation since i hate to use OE) and it was working fine with Comcast, but now with Qwest it doesn't work. I have a question as far as that, i have a Netgear router and the same modem, the Actiontec GT701-WG, do i need to setup special port forwardings? I have the same problem with my Netgear router being defaulted to and the modem is I am a programmer by nature, have my associates degree in software programming, but i am not very network minded. I have my router all setup for dynamic ip addressing to three of my four computer, the fouth is my brother-in-laws computer that is rarely on. So in short, is there something i need to do either my Linksys or my Actiontec to get this working (since Qwest doesn't help with port forwarding questions). Any assistance would be so helpful. Thanks so much.

oh, one other thing, they are both plugged in, i can get all outgoing things (http, ftp, etc.), I just can't get any incoming things, (PCAnywhere, my ftp server [Serv-U])

Our current Technicolor Modem/Router does not have the wifi range to reach my laptop at my apartment at the house's backyard I recently bought from CompUSA a NetGear NR2000 v3 router which has a repeater function. But so far the results have been less than stellar so the question is do this router only works as a repeater of the same model and brand of router or is it even possible for it to work with a modem/router combo unit such as the Technicolor?

A:Is it possible to connect as a repeater a Netgear 2000 v3 router to a DSL modem?

If it has a Repeater mode it should work regardless of the brand of the other WAP or wireless router (unless the manual says that it doesn't). But can be much tougher to get working. Do you have it positioned at a place where the laptop gets a strong signal?

Is your problem with getting the Netgear to connect/repeat? Or its signal strength is too low when you try to use the laptop at the desired location? Or ... ?

Can anyone tell me how I can get my Netgear wireless router MR814v2 working with my Qwest DSL modem (Actiontec GT701R)? Is this router compatible with this modem? The Internet service works great, but every time I try to hook up the router, I get the white "this page cannot be displayed." I can't even get into the NETgear page to try and change the settings. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a new N600 Netgear DSL modem/router. I was able to install the internet connection but no the Wireless. It keeps asking me for a PIN number . They say it is on the device itself.

A:Solved: Cannot get new Netgear DSL Modem/Router connected to Wireless

yes, the pin number should be written on the label on the router

otherwise connect to the router by a cable and then you would need to loginto the router configuration pages and goto the wireless section where you can read the pin code

do you have the exact model N600 is generic for a few netgear models- again it will be written on the label on the router itself

Hiyas peeps!

Ive got a Actiontech DSL Modem and a Netgear WGR614 v6 router.
No matter what I do, I cant host a gaming server, use proggys like Netmeeting or even jump on Azreus.

I had a similar problem with a Linksys router that I had to configure as a switch due to the security features on the Actiontech..

Anyone know what Im talkingabout and have some suggestions for the Netgear router?

hey guys.... just wondering if anyone can help me.
I've been trying to get my wNetgear wireless router (DG834g v2) to hook up to (RealtekRTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC) cable modem.
Problem is...
-i have no setup cd
-when i try using the setup wizard through it won't recognise the connection and says to check the dsl cable.
I've tried rebooting both routers many times and restarting the computor.
Also tried reconfiguring manually by going through the step by step instructions on the right of setup page.
Still no go.
Sometimes it will connect when it's plugged straight into comp others i have to switch it back to normal cable router to get internet.
I can't help but think if i had the set up disc i would be ok??
If anyone has a magic remedy i'd really appreciate the help.
Thanks for reading guys!

We have always had the cable modem and Netgear router near each other (with computers nearby as well.) Now we want to set up our computers in another room. We want to leave the modem where it is, and relocate the router near our computers, which are not wireless. Doing it this way means there will be only one cable running room to room. Will this compromise our internet speed? I am assuming the 50 ft line from modem-to-router will not affect the speed.

I reset my Netgear 300 yesterday and am now only able to access my home network via Ethernet. My home network doesn't even appear on the list of available networks unless the Ethernet cable is plugged in. My mobile phone is accessing a Netgear network, but I can't connect to it on my laptop because it requires a network key, which I don't have. I tried "password" to no avail. I have Windows 10 and have tried adding my network that way, but no luck there. Thoughts?

Hi Guys,

I'm relatively new to this sort of thing and need some help, please.

I have two personal PC's and two laptops from work + a Netgear NAS NV+ that I wish to link up for: 1. backing up my work files, 2. editing photographs and videos, and 3. personal use of MS Office.

I have broadband into the house and get the internet without problems on any of the computers.

The NETOPIA 3397G is a modem router with only four LAN connections.
The NAS NV+ requires an extra connection as does one of my printers.

I have bought a Netgear GS-605 1GB switch.

I connected the switch to the modem router using Cat 6 cable - straight through type. Unfortunately, the switch doesn't appear to recognise the router as the LED is on amber.

I can connect the PCs and the NAS NV+ to the switch and make a fully working network but if I connect up to the modem/router I am unable to get the Internet.

Question 1. Should I be using a cross-over cable for the link between modem and the switch?

Question 2. As the GS-605 is just a switch, shouldn't the link to the modem-router just work, without any configuration changes to the router?

Any ideas for solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I really have no background in network connecting so a little help is necessary. Setup is a destop to a modem to a router to a ps3. The ps3 gets a signal no problem without even installing the setup disc, its just that im having trouble connecting the internet to the router itself. When is comes to Subnet and Ip and Gateway im lost. Considering when i look at the connections i have Verizon online, Westell Wirespeed Dual Connect Modem and NVIDIA nFORCE MPC Networking Controller, don't have any clue which to connect to. Any walkthrough or help would be greatly appreciated.

Just abruptly, my internet connecton failed. I have been using the router for about 3 years.
When I go thru the set up process thru and hit the test button, it indicates I am "connected to the server" but it wont go any further than that. No "negotiation" after that. Netgear says my password is wrong. That's not correct.
Earthlink seems to think it's a bad router. I've tried the factory reset and that didn't work
I am using Windows 98, but I have been still able to use the router for the last 3 years.
The modem is a 5360 Speedstream.
Can someone help me?
Thank You

I set this system up for someone a while back and it works fine.

Only issue I have is that every time he tries to access Google using any of 2 wireless laptops the Google page does not complete its loading sequence and effectively hangs. If you cable up the laptops rather than use wireless Google loads up fine.

This happens irrespective of whether the Netgear system is running OPEN or with security enabled (currently running WPA-PSK encryption).

Anyone seen this before and can offer a solution please?

About three days ago, I started having some issues with my network. Lag, seemingly slow speeds, the usual kinda mess. I discovered that my download speed was fine, but my upload speed was being throttled to around 41 kilobits, rather than what should be 2 megabits. I've been under the assumption that this is what's causing the issue, because as far as I can tell, everything else is fine.

Now, I called up Charter Communications' tech support, figuring my ISP might be doing something. Nope, turns out that a troubleshooting step I overlooked seems to work fine. If I go straight into the modem from my computer, everything's fine and dandy. I think this rules out the ISP as the cause of the problems, right? If the speed is fine through the modem, and not through the router, the problem's clearly gotta be with the router, right?

I figured it might have something to do with a firmware update that I did on the router, and thought that there might have been another update to fix issues or something. I go to check for an update on the router's config page, and it says that I don't have a connection, and yet I'm still able to use this site, and the rest of the people on the network are going fine.

So what's the problem here? Is it a compatibility issues between Motorola and Netgear? Have I done something I shouldn't have?

For reference, the modem is a Motorola Surfboard SB6120, the router is a Netgear WGR614 V9, and my ISP is Charter... Read more
