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

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.

Hi all....

Thank you in advance

A:Solved: Netgear FVS318 as a switch


JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

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.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing functi... Read more

Recently my school tripped a circuit breaker and possibly caused the death of my 5-6 year old netgear 16 port ethernet fast switch. It no longer has power. Since then I purchased a Netgear Prosafe 10/100 switch model FS 116 and installed it as per the directions. I have some solid green lights and some blinking green lights. The port that connects to the modem has a solid blinking light. I can get an internet connection directly from the DSL line and from the modem, but when I connect the modem to the switch there is no internet connection on any of my network stations. The switch does work fine on a different network across the street. Any ideas? I need to get my network up and running again soon!!!! Thank you.

Isn't there a router or firewall in the mix somewhere?

I have an old, old Netgear 814v2 that I'd like to use as a switch to, in effect, extend my wireless range and allow other old hardware that is NOT WPA-capable to connect to my network. From what I've read, it ought to be fairly easy: disable DHCP on the Netgear, and connect the Netgear to the router via a LAN port not the WAN port. This should, I gather, convert the former router to a simple switch.

Having done this: if I connect to the Netgear-turned-switch via a LAN port (cable) everything works fine (the computer gets valid IP's, subnet mask, DHCP server and DNS server IPs). Great! It's a switch!

But if I connect via wireless it gets an oddball IP address out of range of the normal IP's for a client computer, and no default Gateway or DNS server IP's. Which is to say, hardwired network connection through the Netgear-turned-switch works fine; wireless works not at all.

Why would the Netgear-turned-switch fail to pass through for wireless, and work just fine for wired? What am I missing?

(For those who are concerned, if I get this to work, I'll provide security on the Netgear by specifying MAC addresses that can connect. Sometimes folks get upset by the open security implied and it seems to distract from the original question.)

Thanks to all who can help!

Hi All,

This is driving me crazy at the minute, so I thought I would throw it out to the experts to try and get my sanity back! Here goes...

I have Sky BB (dlink router) and I have been successfully using 4 comtrend homeplugs to share my connection to a spiderbox, sky HD box and HP officejet network printer. I recently had my electricity supplier changing a meter and after he went I found that 2 of the homeplugs had fried - I know they're temperamental so I took it on the chin.

Anyway I have now decided to go a different route and I purchased a Vonets wifi bridge, which works well. My question is this - I have an old Netgear DG834G router and I would like to use this as a network switch so that I can plug my bridge into one of the ethernet ports and draw off from 2 of the other 3 ports to feed my printer and Sky HD box.

I plugged the vonets into port 1 and then a cable to both my printer and my sky box and nothing - then I went into my netgears homepage and disabled DHCP, and hey presto I got a connection on my sky box. I assumed that was that until I tried to print and the printer was not available. I have tried loads of things since - static IP on the printer (I usually have it static anyway as my work laptop doesn't like it otherwise), manually configuring the network on my sky box, changing some of the settings in my netgear router but I cannot get it working. I tried changing the IP adresses on both my printer and sky box to the same as the vonets, ... Read more

Hi All,

I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can solve this problem for me...

How is it possible to configure 2 VLANs to communicate with each other on the same switch? I have managed to create 2 VLANS and they both work (and can access the internet), but they can't communicate with each other.

VLAN1 has an IP range starting 10.4.160 and VLAN2 has an IP range starting 10.6.192.

Is it VLAN routing that I'm looking for? Are there any Netgear switch experts out there that can help me set this up? My switch is Netgear GSM7328FS.

Thanks in advance

A:VLAN Routing (Netgear Switch)

To allow routing between VLANs on the same switch, you need a layer 3 switch, which you have. I've never configured one of those. The only Netgear switches I've configured are the web managed ones which are layer 2 only but have configured other layer 3 switches. Basically, you need to create a VLAN interface and assign an IP address to it. By default when the switch has multiple VLAN interfaces with IP addresses, it will route between them without needing to have any static route entries or the use of routing protocols. It is known as locally connected. With the connected clients on both subnets, you would make the default gateway the IP address of the switch on that respective subnet/VLAN.

Hi all,

I am trying to setup a DrayTek firewall (DrayTek Vigor 2830) with my Netgear 24port Managed Switch (Netgear GS724TS).

The DrayTek works fine when plugged directly into a PC however once plugged into the switch the computers connected cannot seem to get an IP even when setting statically.

I have been told things like multicast need to be off for the data to translate this is off on my settings, I must be missing a setting? Anyone got any suggestions?


A:DrayTek and Netgear Managed Switch

Are you using the firewall as a DHCP server that hands out addresses to the PC's connected to the switch? I'm not familiar with either of these products, but if the switch supports VLANs, make sure that all ports are on the same VLAN.

3 years ago I purchased a Netgear GS608 V.2 8-port switch under the impression that if I connected it to a Cable Modem, it would allow me to connect multiple computers to the Internet. After trying to connect multiple computers and failing, I did some research and found out what I needed was a Router, not a Switch. However, I kept the switch and never ended up buying a router, because in reality I rarely need to connect more than one computer at a time and of all the devices I'd imagined I'd be connecting, only an ether printer ever materialized. I should have done research before my purchase and if I still wanted a switch bought the 5-port, but as I said I was thinking big .
The reason I am posting is that I am going off to college next fall and had a few questions.

1.) The college specifically prohibits Routers, Hubs, and Smart/Intelligent Switches. Is the Switch I bought considered either of these? And will the college know if I connect a router, hub, or switch without coming into my dorm room and seeing it?

2.) All of the dorm rooms have ether ports in them, will I be able to connect the switch to the ether port and use multiple computers, or will I have to connect the switch to a router which is connected to the ether port?

3.) Although more than one computer cannot connect to the switch at one time and go online, other devices like ether printers are able to print from my computer through the switch. Will all other devices that donít go on the... Read more

A:Netgear GS608 V.2 8-Port Switch Questions

1) No, I don't believe that your switch is one of those. If you connect a router/hub/switch (which, by the way, are usually lumped together into a super-device nowadays, that often also has Wi-Fi), they may or may not be able to tell. On one hand, they can tell how many computers are online (so they would notice if that number exceeded the number of dorms), and potentially how many computers are in a room (depending on their wiring). However, if you don't connect to the wall (you connect to some Wi-Fi network), it won't matter, as a Wi-Fi network can have unlimited computers connected to it at once without the use of a router.

2) It depends on what you want to do. If you want to "network" the computers, so that their data can be accessed from each other, I think your switch will do. However, if you want to connect them to the Internet, you will need to connect to a router. If you must, you should probably use one of those "super-devices" that is a switch with a built-in router (usually sold, annoyingly, as just a "router"). But those are prohibited anyway ("smart switches").

3) Yes, as the switch provides networking between devices attached to it, but not Internet access.

I had been using a 6 port netgear hub and wake on lan was working just fine for all my systems including an xp and win7 system. It also worked when the win7 system was plugged into a linksys 10/100 router.

After I replaced the hub with a netgear prosave gs105 switch, my windows 7 system will not wake on lan. If I plug it back into my hub or router, it works again.

And I can dual boot this computer into ubuntu, and wol works, for both hub and switch.

One significant difference when wol doesn't work is that when the system is shutdown, the leds on the network connector on the motherboard, are not lit, nor are they lit on the switch's end. These leds are lit when it does work, and only go out when hooked to this new switch.

So this probably is something uncommon to do with power management, since I've gone through all the usual settings before to get it to work with the hub.

The only other thing that I can think of that is different with the hub, router and switch, is that the switch claims to have an auto shutdown feature (which I can't turn off) when it senses that the port is off. It's a green feature I guess.

It's an asus MB with a Atheros Communications Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller.

Any ideas?

So this particular system, with the same configuration (no extra connected deviecs, etc.) works with the GS105 for 'Wake on LAN', but when booted into Windows, it does not?

I just looked up the GS105, reading it's technical sheet, it does not mention any support for 'Wake on LAN', but based on what you said, we can assume it does and it works? Have you made any changes, such as port forwarding changes, to your new switch?

This would seem to suggest a Windows configuration step that is required (although you would have thought your driver settings and configuration is already correct, since it proved to work previously).

Perhaps somewhere along the line a firewall is blocking out the 'Wake on LAN' frames?

Try checking your network adapter (device manger -> network adapter properties -> advanced tab) for 'Wake on LAN'/'Wake on Magic Packet', or something like this.

Hello TechSupport people,

I am relatively good at installing and troubleshooting smaller sized networks... I am having trouble with one of my customer's networks and I think I have the problem narrowed down. Please help me if you see any corrections or issues.

I have a customer with a FS726T switch and ~20 computers connected to this switch running DHCP assigned addresses. The switch is assigning addresses in the 10.0.0.xx range.

The customer currently has an old T1 line coming into a Cisco router, which then directs traffic to port 20 on the switch.

The problem is, we are replacing the old T1 line with a newer 50mbps cable connection. The cable company pre-configured their router with a static IP address the 68.116.xx.xx range. The Subnet is also different than the Netgear's subnet. I would like to keep the old T1 connection in place. I believe they have data that needs to go to their mainframe/backbone server at corporate.

I cannot log in to the cable modem. IT is an SMC SMCD3G with a staic IP. I tried changing my PC's IP address to the same gateway but cannot get into the cable company's modem, even using a static IP with the same gateway as the modem's gateway address. I don't want to reset the modem/router and lose the cable company's settings.

I am pretty sure for the devices to communicate, the following has to be true?:

1) Cable modem and FS726T must be on the same 10.0.0.xx IP range?
2) Cable modem and FS726T must be on the ... Read more

If WAN have you changed one of the routers so that they don't both use the same LAN subnet (I didn't check each one, but they probably both default to the same).

If LAN have you disabled the N600's Dhcp server?

Hi - my first post so please be kind. I have searched for a previous answer, but similar ones all seem more complex problems than mine!

I am running XP on my PC and connecting to the Internet with a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router DG834G v3.

Most of the time it is fine (and it also runs a second PC upstairs through the wireless network OK).

Then about once or twice a day, the Internet light goes from green to orange, flashing on and off for about 10 seconds, then off altogether for a few seconds, then flashing orange again and so on. At this point if I click on the Internet connection symbol in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (task tray?) it tells me I am connected, but with no speed, and I can't access any websites.

If I try the connection diagnostics in XP, it tells me to check the wires, turn the modem off and on again, but when that doesn't work just tells me to contact my ISP.

Each time this has happened I have tried re-booting the PC, and tried turning the power to the router/modem off for a few minutes and back on, no luck, and then eventually, for no apparent reason, the link seems to recover itself and I am back online. (This morning it took about 30 minutes)

We get our Internet through overhead telephone wires (no cable out here in the sticks) and the best speed I ever show on teh connection status screen is 2.5Mbps, but often much less.

when i installed it all it wont detect my internet ( i'm on plusnet fibre ) if that's any help, when i launch my browser and go inside the router by network genie it wont detect the internet, it keep's saying there's no dsl cable plugged into the adsl port (which it is) everything is connected up properly, ive followed all the instruction's as well, does anyone know what it could be?

A:Solved: Netgear N600 router/modem wont detect my internet???

Default font size is much less unpleasant on the eyes.

I've never heard of an ADSL modem or modem/router used with fiber optic. You really have some device that "translates" between the fiber and 2-wire phone cable? Why would you even want to do that?

My internet works fine with the wire from modem directly connected into the laptop but when the wire from modem is connected to the router, I am not able to access the internet.
I tried to make my laptop (Running windows 7 64 bit os) as the router and i can easily access net on my other devices.

I thought there is a problem with my router. So I took my router to my cousins place who has the same ISP provider. And to my surprise ,my router worked perfectly there.
I cannot understand what i can do to fix my problem.
My ISP just provides me the wire , the modem is installed somewhere out. I just get the wire from the modem.

My ISP gives dynamic ip addresses. I have to login in the site portal.beamtele.com every time i connect the wire to my ethernet port of the laptop.
I took the router to my friends place sharing the same ISP with the same package. My router worked fine there.
i brought his Belkin router to my home to check. And at my place, it didnt work.

The easiest way is to run the CD that should have come with the Router, if you havent got it then you will have to configure it manually.

Full instructions can be found on the netgear website here.

Ok so my problem right now is that i can't connect to the internet on my other computers via wireless connection. The one i am using right now i had to plug in to the router using an ethernet cable. I have the Netgear wnr2000v3 router, and today i updated its firmware. From there on i could not use the internet and began receiving limited access from my network and it became unidentified network(was called Guardado-HP_Network). I then called some tech support from websites like crestbell and netgeartechnicalsupport they remote logged into my computer and told me that i have malware( csrss.exe) that is causing my problem and that they would charge $99.99 per computer to get rid of it and clean up my router. So i came here to see if anyone could help me and save me the burden of having to pay $100 to get the help i could get from other people.
My system specs that this computer has are:

I have two computers. The first is a laptop running Vista and connects to the internet just fine. The second is a desktop running XP. I have a network adapter on the desktop and although it DOES find my network, I cannot get it to connect to the internet.

I recently moved from one city to another, and I still have my same ISP. However, I can't get onto the Internet through my same Netgear router. I can connect to the Internet when directly connected to my modem, and I can ping my router from my laptop wirelessly, but the router won't let me onto the Internet.

I tried to modify some settings on the router itself (, but I think I may have just gotten myself in deeper. It's currently setup for no security, and even with that I still can't get on. I might mention that I can't get on through the wireless router either connected or wireless.

I tried Netgear support, but they were worthless - they want $39.99 for one-time support assistance. I discovered my router was only good for 90 days of support. After that it's we'll-help-only-if-you-pay-us.

Any suggestions?

I have configured Netgear router at home. I use a neatgear wireless adapter on mylaptop to connect to my laptop and it works fine.
On my home desktop I directly connect with a Lan cord to one of the 4 ports available on the router.
Until day before yesterday its went all fine on my home desktop, but since yesterday I am not able to surf the net via IE or FF but suprisingly Bit Torrent is working fine, able to download and upload.

I did try Port Triggering but after this problem I have disabled it, but still the problem is not solved. I beleive it something related to the port config I did on the router via routerlogin.com but not sure how to correct it.

Please help.


A:Netgear Router - Internet not working

Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure it.

Hey everyone, my name is Andre,

I've had a Netgear WPN824 v3 wired/wireless router for over a year now. Recently, the wireless intern connection goes off and on. The desktop computer that's wired to it doesn't lose connection, only wireless devices repeatedly gain and lose connection. To fix it I have to unplug the the router and plug it back in. The connection returns for about 2 minutes and then starts to go off and on again. I'm completely confused about what to do. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

A:Internet randomly goes off and on (Netgear WPN 824 v3 router)

Make sure you have the latest firmware; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Multiple wireless devices lose internet access at the same time? Can they still access the router (via wireless) during that time? If not, can you still detect the wireless network?

I thought that I had this all figured out, but my dad just asked me a question about my setup, and I can't answer it.

The setup is like this:
[ip-phones + computers]-->[small switch]-->[managed L2 switch]-->[router]-->[modem]

I have several ip-phones and computers grouped into blocks of 8. Each set of 8 is a medley of phones/computers connected to a small switch http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=3681322279B34

Each of these switches, in turn, will be connected to a managed L2 switch http://www1.ca.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pwcnt_3448p?c=ca&cs=calca1&l=en&s=biz that will create 2 VLANS: One VLAN will contain all of the phones, and the other will contain all of the computers. In turn, each VLAN will have its own router and DSL modem, thereby separating the network traffic.

I know that I can use this L2 switch to make the VLANS based on the MAC addresses of the devices. However, the smaller switches do not support 802.1q [VLANs]. Will it be a problem that the smaller switches do not support VLANs? Essentially, will this setup work to split up network traffic?

Thanks once again,

A:Computer, switch, switch, router, modem

I have the same DELL switch for my phones. You PoE will not carry across the linksys switches, so that is the first problem.
Next are the computers attached to the phones? Or does each device get its own drop?

And whats this about 2 routers and modems? Thats a bit over kill!! QoS would do the trick.

I would run all the devices off the Dell and attach the computers to the Phones (most IP Phones have a passthrough port) Configure the Dell with trunk ports with the Computer VLAN passing untagged traffic making it the native VLAN. While having the phones on a Tagged VLAN(If you phones conig allows you to set the VLAN in its config great! If not you can bind the MAC to the VLAN). The you create a QoS policy giving the VoIP traffic priority!

dgn2000 netgear router will not connect to internet. I reset it but got rid of the red light in the internet but now there is no light. How can i get connected to the internet.


A:dgn2000 netgear router will not connect to internet

That's an ADSL modem/wireless router combination unit, right? Is this your initial attempt to set it up, or was it working previously?

By reset to you mean a simple restart or do you mean a reset to factory default settings?

Hi, Recently my Netgear stopped working, Stopped connecting to the internet. I woke up one day, And the internet light on the router was not on. I have tried 2 different Netgear Routers, The same Model but one is a V3 and the other is a V4, The same outcome, Both do not connect to the internet. I have a modem that was provided to me by my ISP, And that works fine and connects to the internet straight away. So I know for a fact I have not been disconected from the internet.

On the V3 Netgear DG834G, The Wireless Light comes on, The Power Light, And DSL, AND Internet Light, But it flashes orange first, Then goes green, But still no internet. On the V4, The internet light dosen't come on at all.

I've tried plugging my Router into my main phone line socket, And no luck there either.

Any help? Please.

have you configured the router for you account details ?

After completing the Internet connection configuration, your can test your Internet connection.
Log in to the router, then, from the Basic Settings link in the Setup menu, click the Test button. If
the NETGEAR Web site does not appear within one minute, refer to Chapter 9,
“Troubleshooting”.Click to expand...

have you tried this ?
