Netgear router: Can connect to Internet, but can't connect to

Q: Netgear router: Can connect to Internet, but can't connect to


I just got my Netgear router WGR614 v6. I was able to initally access to finish setup. Setup was successful but then whenever I started my IE, intead of loading my homepage, it will only load the Netgear login page while displaying my default homepage's address. But it has no problem connection to any other website.

So I restarted my laptop and reset my modem and router. After that,
I can no longer connect to The IE only displays this Dell page: http://www.google.com/hws/dell-usuk-rel/afe?hl=en&channel=us&s=
stating "Sorry, we couldn't find "

I'd like to know How can I connect to again because as soon as I unplug the cable from my router to the laptop, I lose internet connection.

Please help. Thanks much in advance!

I've just purchased a Netgear N150 usb wireless adapter to use with my DGN1000 wireless ADSL2+ modem router,
I can access the router's web-based interface wirelessly and wireless networks are visible from the Control Panels Manage Wireless Networks but I can't connect to the internet even though my wired connection works, I have no SP installed on my x64 bit OS.

My ISP's technical support couldn't help, the problem doesn't appear to be the signal strength or the wireless network mode which I have configured as 802.11g or 802.11b, do I need to tweak my routers wireless settings in some way or this is an OS issue?

A:Can connect wirelessly to Netgear router but not to the Internet

Are you saying you don't have SP2 installed? If not, you should install SP1 and then SP2 before trying to troubleshoot the problem you described.

I have a WGR614 v6 Netgear router. The router was working fine then wouldn't connect to the internet. When it was working properly, only the number 4 was lit. Now numbers 1-4 are lit and it does not reset when I hold down the reset button. Please help!

A:Netgear router won't reset or connect to internet

If you hold the reset button for 15 seconds with power on and it doesn't recovery, I suspect it has simply died. I'm guessing you don't have devices connected to all four ports, right?

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?

After months of paying $55 a month for Comcast cable, I've decided to give cheaper Qwest DSL a try. My cable setup is D-Link DCM-202 cable modem -> Vonage VT1005V voice terminal -> Netgear MR814v2 wireless router. With cable service my Vonage worked fine as did the wireless router/internet for my laptop.

I just replaced the cable service with Qwest DSL (with GT701 DSL modem). DSL works fine if I connect my laptop directly to the DSL modem. When I add the Vonage modem and the wireless router, I can't get to internet anymore (wireless). Vonage still works fine and I can access the wireless router from my laptop, but can't get to internet.

Any help would be appriciated.

I have had this router for a few years and I have just moved it to the right place in the house, namely connected to the main phone socket... The desktop connected to the router via an ethernet cable is doing fine... Before I moved the router, my 2 wireless laptops were connecting fine as well... since I did this, they first showed limited connectivity, so I set the IP addresses up manually... they are now connecting to the network/router wirelessly, but I cannot connect to the internet; when I try to open Mozilla or Explorer, I get the message "server not found"... I tried everything, restarted the router, rebooted my laptops, but no luck... My operating system is Windows XP family on the desktop and Professional SP2 on the laptops ... any ideas would be welcome...
Thank you...

By "connecting" do you mean simply broadcasting on the same channel, or do you mean actually communicating with the router (confirmed by ping or accessing the configuration pages)?

Not my week so far yet another problem. Been trying all day to connect to the internet with the above router. Happened accross a screen saying Firewall settings.
It says for the inbound services "BLOCK always" is this my problem?
I have tried to amend this to " ALLOW always" to which the outbound services are already set.
My next problem is it is asking for the inbound services to be adjusted so I have setthe service parameter to ALL, action ALLOW always but now is the problem it wants an address putting into the 4 boxes for the Send to LAN Server parameter
I have tried various setting but to no avail. Exactly where can I get this information from?

Sorry if it's not overly clear but I'm a heathen when it comes to this sort of thing.

My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2 (Sony VAIO Desktop PCV-RS420, Pentium-4, 2.8 Ghz, 512MB Ram). I am now unable to connect to the Internet. The network diagnostic for window XP kept saying to check firewall settings for HTTP(port 80), HTTPS(port 443), and FTP (port 21).  I don't know how to do that. I open the Window firewall settings on the Security Center page (Exception tab), it lists programs and services on the "Exception", ie, to not block incoming network connection from these programs or services, which include "Internet Explorer",on the list, which seems to be appropriate.  But my computer still will not connect to the Internet--very frustrating.  I  have done "System Restore" a few times to an earlier dates, thinking maybe the computer picked up some virus and the System restore function should temporarily resolve that issue.  But still no luck.   Finally, I tried connecting to a secured website with "HTTPS" in the address bar and the computer appeared to be successful to connect to these HTTPS sites, but it continued to refuse to connect to a regular website(i.e. with "HTTP" in its address bar).  Please help me resove these internet connection issues I would vey much appreciate.

A:Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

<<My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2...>>
May have nothing to do with your problem...but you really need to install SP3 and all critical updates since its issuance...that may take care of your problem, but even if it doesn't...your system will be less vulnerable.
Installing or reinstalling SP3... has been known to overcome various previous system problems.
Sounds to me like corruption affecting non-secure websites, so you may also want to reinstall IE8.

I have a lenovo u160 running windows 7, a couple of days ago it seemed my computer was infected with something, giving a series of security warnings I had not seen before (not av security suite). It slowed the computer down for a few minutes.

After closing these messages, there seemed to be no problem, but then my computer was no longer connect to the internet. It connects to our router/wireless network, but not to the internet.

I tried resetting and unplugging the router and the modem, but still no luck. We have two other computers on the same network that are connecting to both the network and the internet.

I tried running rkill and malwarebytes twice and no malicious items were detected.

I restored the computer to an earlier point (2-3 days earlier)

On the toolbar in the bottom right of the taskbar, it shows a 5 white signal bars, with a "!" inside a yellow triangle.
If I click on the network button it states it is "connected" to the network. It describes the connection as "excellent" (4-5/5 bars).

Above the display of the available networks, it states

"currently connected to:
Unidentified network
No Internet access"

I am not computer savvy and have not run into this problem before. Thanks for your time and help.

Ok, let me start by saying that I am not that experienced with networking lingo so any responses should be as simple as possible. Pretend you are speaking to a 2nd grader.

I have searched a many of pages but have not found a solution to my problem. I recently purchased and successfully installed a NetGear N600 dual band router (WNDR3400). My desktop has no connection issues. My iPod Touch has no issues connecting to the wireless network. However, my phone (HTC Aria), my work computer (Dell Latitude D630 Win XP) and my brand new HP Slate 500 (Win 7 Pro) cannot connect to the network. The network is discoverable by all the devices but the 3 cannot connect. I removed all security and still was not able to connect. I reinstalled the router and still not able to connect. I restarted the router and still not able to connect. The Dell did previously connect to unsecured networks in my neighborhood but does not seem to like my newly set-up network. I am most surprised that the Slate is unable to connect to the wireless network. I would think something brand new would like that would not have an issue. If I cannot get my wireless router working properly and my other computers able to connect to it, it makes them all pretty useless. I'd appreciate any help anyone may be able to provide me.

Thanks in advance for your time and help!!

Actually they are breaking the ISP agreement in most countries.
The agreement will state that the broadband can only be used in one premises , this is so that people cannot provide neighbours with wifi ....

so as this is also against our rules - closing post

We recently connected the Netgear WNR2000 to our modem. All wireless devices connect just fine, except for our Roku XD. It says there is an activation error. I've reset the box, unplugged, changed the channel via wireless settings. What's next??? I'm quite frustrated and would like to get this to work. The message I get is "activation issue. There was a problem connecting to the Roku server". Argh!! It was working fine with the other wireless modem/router (versalink 327W), but it kept going off (as in the signal would drop and we would have to turn it off/on to get it to work) and connected the netgear router to it today. So now the wireless signal is fine and all other devices connect, but the Roku won't work.

Recently switched to DSL from Cable. Ironically, the problem was present even when I had cable, but now I must solve it once and for all.

I was able to get my DSL connection working (Westell 6100 modem) and imy desktop is wired to my router (Netgear WGT624 V3). However, for some reason, my laptop is unable to connect wirelessly. This was also happening when I had cable as well.

I know it is not the laptop, since I bring it to work and other places, and it connects fine. I checked to make sure my security settings match those of the network, and they do. I even tried resetting the router, taking off encryption, and none of those have worked. By the way, the name of my network is listed when I "View Available Networks". It's just that when I try to connect, it doesn't connect. I am using an Intel program to control the wireless adapter, instead of the Windows-based one. I even switched it off and tried the Windows default one, but that still doesn't work.

I really don't know what to do. Any suggestions? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

My Dell laptop can connect OK and the netbook connects via an ethernet cable. I've checked online and my router should be compatible with the notebook and I've also checked for updates to the router software.

I've also tried turning off the WEP encryption on the router and the netbooks firewall without success.

Help me please! First of all, I'm not very good with computers and all of the terminology. I have Virgin Media connected and recently bought a Virgin Media Netgear Router - WGR614. I have tried and tried to connect this and configure the router to my laptop but it just won't work! I have used the Netgear website instructions and the Virgin Media Wireless set up CD but still no luck. It did come up on my list of available network connections at one stage but could not 'acquire the network address'. Now I can't even get it up on my available network list.

I have reset the router many times, disconnected and connected everything. I'm thinking maybe I have to do something else on my pc to allow the wireless connection? I have used wifi before on this pc and have had no problems at all.

Virgin Media will not help at all since I already have an internet connection so I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me?

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

I have just recently had installed a sky satellite along with the sky+hd service. The sky+hd box is connected to a phone extension line via a filter. All other extensions have filters installed. I have a digital phone connected to the same extension as sky via a second filter. Both filters go into a splitter. Since this has been done I can no longer connect to AOL. I can sometimes connect to the internet via IE but cannot load any web pages apart from those with very few graphics - and loading is excruciatingly slow. If I disconnect the sky+hd box everything is fine. If I leave the sky+hd box connected, switched on but don't switch the Panasonic TV on everything is still fine. The TV is connected to the sky+hd box via an HDMI cable. I am on a BT line, more than 5 miles from the exchange, and according to BT my max available speed is 256k!! I have run broadband speed checker and it gives me download speeds of 464k and upload of 213k. My router is a netgear dg834g and I am running windows vista (SP1 I think).
Any ideas out there? Could it be a bandwidth problem?

A:[SOLVED] aol broadband won't connect, netgear dg834 router, sky+ hd

I don't seem to have 'edit' option yet - maybe because I just joined forum yesterday - so will reply to my own post.
Solution - use TWO filters between extension socket and Sky+HD box. Found this solution on another forum and it works. Apparently using a better quality filter at the main BT socket also works ie. one of those which replaces the faceplate and filters all extensions.

Hi there,

It's my first time on this forum so would be delighted if anyone could help me PLEASE! I have just bought a brand new Sony Vaio laptop VPCEH2. I have tried to connect wirelessly to my Netgear router (DG934G). The router and broadband is supplied by Sky. The laptop is running Windows 7. The router is sending a wireless sending fine to our desktop and two smartphones but the Vaio is unable to connect.

The Vaio finds the signal which is says is excellent but does not connect. Using an ethernet cable the internet connection is fine. I have been on the phone to Sky for nearly 2 hours across two nights and they have given up. We have tried setting up a new router password, disconnecting and reconnecting, establishing a connection in the Network and Sharing Cente using WPA security with no joy. I asked them if the router needed a firmware upgrade for Windows 7 and they were adamant that it did not - the firmware version is currently V2.02.44. I have checked the Windows 7 compatibility listings for Netgear routers but couldn't find the DG934G (or the DG834GT - which I believe is a newer version), listed.

The funny thing is that when Sky did help me to create a wireless connection in the sharing centre is did work for around 30 seconds where I was able to access around 5/6 webpages. The browser then stopped working and the connection was lost (with yellow warning triangle across the signal to bottom right of screen).

Hi everyone!

I've come across a problem connecting my laptop to my Netgear R6300 router. It all started out of the blue, yesterday. For some reason my laptop refuses to connect to the router. It sees the SSID, but when you try to connect it will error out stating windows can not connect to.

I tried power cycling the modem, router, laptop. No dice there.
Tried resetting the router. Nope.
Tried using a restore point to go back to before I updated recent windows updates. Didnt work.
Tried uninstalling the wireless card through the device manager, rebooting, reinstalling. Didn't work.

I'm currently on my desktop, which is wired. No issues there. Also my tablet and cellphones connect to the router without any problems. It's only the laptop. This lead me to believe possibly a faulty wireless card inside (which would suck). So I setup my cellphone as a hotspot. Sure enough, the laptop connected just fine!

Something is getting in the way of the laptop and router not playing nice with each other.

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 ... ?

I have a broadband connection with Tiscali (UK) via a USB ADSL WAN adaptor modem. I have had over months now terrible problems with the connection dropping out. Sometimes it will stay up for a day, sometimes it's dropping every hour or so. Very annoying. What's more annoying is that it will not automatically reconnect. If you set it to redial automatically you get a no dial tone error message and you are forced to reboot to get the connection back up. If you leave it for more than an hour, then try to reconnect it usually will. This is not an automatically always on connection from the moment you turn your machine on, you have to manually open the connection. XP classes it as a dial up connection really with ADSL settings.

I've done everything Tiscali has suggested, all the obvious stuff (RJ11 cabling all the way to the modem instead of phone extension cable part of the way etc. etc.), but this is doing my head in now. Good and proper.

So, I've acquired a Netgear DG834G V2 router in the hope that I can get an always-on connection and if this doesn't solve the problem completely, at least if the connection drops out for whatever reason, when the connection comes back it will be resume automatically, so if I'm downloading or whatever it will just carry on.

But I've hit an immediate problem. I've already been using it as my network hub without any problems for a few weeks. But when I tried to go to as mentioned... Read more

A:Can't connect to Netgear DG834G router to configure for DHCP

eVILRigby said:

My machine's address is but I even reset the TCP/IP stack to see if it would resolve the problem and it didn't.
Click to expand...

So does that mean you have the IP of the "machine" (your PC??) manually set to You need to change that (on the PC) to either be any IP addr, other than, in the same subnet or set the PC to automatically get IP from the router.
The DG834G factory setting should be DHCP server by default.

I have SBC Yahoo DSl and am using the modem Speedstream 5100(not 5100b). I am currently having trouble successfully connecting my modem to the router and having connectivity to any computer on the network. I have read countless forums and guides about reconfiguring your modem or router to Bridge mode or something like that. All usually say something about connecting directly to your modem and typing "" or .254.254. I've tried them all and none of them will ever connect to anything(nothing shows up).

I have also read that it is difficult to connect a router to a Speedstream 5100. Please someone help me!!! this is so frustrating!!

A:HELP! 5100 speedstream will not connect with Netgear wnr200v3 router

would you do a full power cycle and connect your PC directly to the Speedstream 5100 and post an ipconfig /all

How to power cycle

&#8220;power cycle&#8221; process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 30 seconds.
Plug the power cords back in, but don&#8217;t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a seperate device ) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

A:Can connect to wireless router BUT cannot connect to internet :(

Try putting static IP addresses in to your wireless network connection.
By the looks of it it seems your wireless connection cannot get an IP address automatically via DHCP.

Let me know if this works or you need help doing this.

I have looked at tons of forums where they have not been able to access Most of them have been solved but following what they did hasn't worked for me. My mother was on and she set up some sort of security on our router (which is Belkin by the way Belkin_N_Wireless_209CAD). Since she changed it we haven't been able to connect to the internet through our router. When we try to connect this is what shows up.

(By the way, I'm only fourteen so I am QUITE confused by even the things I'm trying to do. But I'm the only one in this household who knows anything about computers)

I tried Start -> Run -> CMD and typing in ipconfig /all. I was looking at another forum where someone posted what they got back. My results looked nothing like that. I cannot even tell what my IP adress is through that sequence of events.

Right now I'm on here because I am manually connected to the router through a wire. That's the only way that I can connect. I'm not sure what to do. So if you can help me, well... Please do!

A few days ago my ISP connection dropped out for a few hours. After the modem/router restart I discovered that all wired devices and some wireless devices can connect but a few of the wireless devices are unable to connect and cannot ping the router. As soon as I plug them in with a wired connection they work. The router is a Netgear N900 with the latest firmware upgrade. Both he 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz connections are set to use wpa2 aes authentication. Even when the ping shows a general failure, the router logs show an access denied message for the Mac address that attempted the ping. When I switch to security none connections work fine. There is also a Sony Bravia tv on the network that was connecting fine before the restart but now will only connect when the network security is set to none. None of the router settings changed. None of the pc settings changed.

The network setup is pretty simple.

Adsl2 modem accesses the Internet successfully.
This then feeds into the wan connection of the netgear n900.

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?

I recently got the newest NETGEAR router device, the NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router, and I am unable to connect to the 5GHz WiFi it provides on its Tri-band WiFi. I am currently only on its 2.4GHz WIFI, which I assume is lesser than the 5G. I am able to connect to the 5GHz on my smart phone, so I know it exists from the router. I am running a windows 8.1 currently on a desktop on an HP Envy 700-213 Desktop PC.

Edit: My computer supports 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n radio types - which supports 5GHz WiFi
My adapter is a Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Any ideas for why I am unable to connect to this WiFi?

A:Unable to connect to 5GHz Wifi on NETGEAR Tri-Band Router

The most likely explanation is that the wifi adapter in your HP Envy 700-213 doesn't support the 5Ghz band.

If you really want to connect at 5Ghz you will need to get a new wifi adapter for your computer.

I just bought a new laptop, and was going to set it up to my home wireless network(which already has 2 laptops connected through wireless and one desktop through a cable) but every time that I try to connect to the router it asks for additional log on information(Username, Password, Logon Domain) which are not configured for the router, and there are no passwords(that I'm aware of, since I never set them up) for the home network. I've gone into the router and set it to allow my new computers wireless card to access the router, but it continues to frustrate me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi guys

Have often browsed this fount of knowledge without actually posting but now I am stumped and really need help...

I have recently moved house and had new broadband installed complete with new Netgear N300 router. Now I am unable to connect to the internet even though my desktop says it can see the wireless network (though it does say it is unidentified). The network connection diagram in Vista suggests the problem is between the internet and the router but I know this is not the case as I have successfully connected other devices via the wireless network. I know the router is N and the card is G but the router should still work with the older card, right?

I have tried to download the latest drivers from Belkin for a version 8 F5D7000 but for some reason they wont install (when I click on the install file it thinks for a second then does nothing). No idea why this is the case.

Could it be anything to do with the fact that the card, being older, is WEP and my router has no option for WEP, only WPA onwards? If so, would the latest driver from Belkin in effect 'upgrade' my card to allow it to carry same encryption as the router?

If I can't solve then I'll no doubt end up buying a new PCI card but I didn't want to have to bother right at this moment.

Any help would be fantastic!

Hi All

Recently purchased an Amilo Li1718 running Vista Premium. On trying to connect wirelessly to my Netgear WGT624 v3 I can see all the details of my wireless network (signal strength etc.), if I drop the channel number from 13 to 11, and disable WEP, but cannot connect at all no matter what I try.

I have no problems connecting with a different (DELL) laptop running XP and a Belkin wireless adapter, and I can do the same (connect) with the Amilo. However, I'm at a loss to find a reason and resolution to the lack of connection using the Atheros WLAN AR5007EG device which comes with the Amilo - I don't think it's faulty as it "sees" the wireless network, and others, OK

I've updated the Amilo WLAN driver, tried a few registry tweaks etc. etc. etc. but have had no luck at all.

Can anyone offer any advice on how I might be able to get the Amilo to connect to the WGT624? I've posted on other forums (Amilo, Fujitsu-Siemens who make the Amilo) but no luck at all. And this lack of connection problem with Vista to a wireless network seems to be problematic from what I've seen on the web (anyone confirm?).

I can't provide anymore details about the Amilo setup as I'm at work, but could post back later if someone is kind enough to answer this query. Apologies if I've missed something obvious, but I've been trying to connect for 1 week and have had no luck at all.

I have a D-Link DWL-G520 wireless network adapter for my desktop, and i recentally installed it along with the latest drivers.
the installation had no problems and i am now able to connect to my router and the signal strength is good.

the problem is, it won't allow me to access the internet in any way.
the dynamic IP can never acquire an ip adress.
the static IP says its connected, but it won't actually let me access the internet.

I've tried practically anything from changing my LAN proxy settings to reinstalling all the drivers and the adapter.

I'm trying to connect to either of two routers I have. With either one I can connect to internet (obviously... I'm typing this). I can NOT connect to the router itself to update the firmware or change the settings. The URL to connect to each:
Netgear WGR614v6, or http://routerlogin
Belkin F7D1301, or http://router
Using any of the four connections, I get a "Connection Failed" message, Network is unreachable. I can't tell what's blocking access to it.
I'm using Mobi to filter internet content, but the IP shows allowed
I'm using Avast Antivirus for the firewall, but it's not showing anything being blocked there.
I've also tried disabling Windows Firewall with no luck.
Any suggestions on where to go next?
