Call NETGEAR and they will talk you through and if needed they can work on it at their end. Reset button is hidden on the bottom if needed.

Call net gear directly. Their techs will help you with setting up unit and/or diagnosing problem. Probably need to "reboot".

Based on my experience it is probably not connecting to your DSL provider. try the Netgear Genie, if that doesn't work, check with Netgear Tech Service.

Yes. This router worked with my CenturyLink DSL service. The router should work with any Internet source supplied via a CAT5e or CAT6 cable. However, I dropped CenturyLink because it was too slow. I now have cable Internet service and the router immediately worked without any adjustments.

Question

About how many devices can be connected on the Wifi and still run effectively

My two roommates and I are looking for a new router and were wondering about how many devices we this network can support. (ie. 3 Laptops and then smartphones). We have heard good things about this router but don't want to have poor access as a result of buying too small of a router

Question

I have a netgear WNR2000 that I have had for the past 5 years will it continue to work with comcast increased speeds?

I keep getting letters from comcast telling me that my current digital internet and voice modem is no longer capable of supporting the speeds of my Xfinity service, we need to replace your existing device with a wireless gateway. My internet works fine now, does this mean the actual cable box or the netgear modem. I am confused. Will this eventually interfere with my internet and tv?

Due to DOCSIS being updated to 3.0 in some areas, your MODEM will need to be upgraded to get the speeds you are paying for. NOT the router.

It supports up to 300+ Mbps so it will support the speeds because as of right now, residential areas haven't really gotten past 200 yet. But it will support the fast speeds.

They mean your modem not the converter box for the TV. Your Netgear WNR2000 is just a Wifi Router connected to your Comcast supplied modem. You very likely are paying for higher speeds than your present modem can supply. No, it won't interfere with your TV and internet. In fact you probably are not getting full use of your Wireless N router. I had to do the same thing a few years ago.

answer 4
You need to update your older cable modem. With the increase in speed from the cable company you need to update the hardware in order to take advantage of the new service. You have 2 devices providing your internet service. You have to cable modem and then you have your WNR2000 which is your network router and wireless transmitter. You can keep your WNR2000 but should upgrade the cable modem to a docsis 3.0.
The cable modem is not your cable box that connects to your tv. But they both come in on the same cable but split to provide your tv and internet.

The cable company will give you a free one or you could buy your own like this..

I use internet essentials through Comcast, they sent me a modern, but it was not wireless. I bought this so that we could have wireless internet in our home. This is only a router, you also need a modem. You can buy modem/router combos, then you will not have to pay a rental fee each month to Comcast.

I am able to connect Wi-Fi on my 12 year old XP laptop with no problems using this router. I also have another rarely used XP desktop computer about 10 years old and use a wireless USB adapter to connect to Wi-Fi with no problems using this router. So if it works on my 12 year old XP laptop it should work on a 5 year old computer.

if your desktop is wired to internet, unplug that cable and plug it into the router. Use another data cord to go from the router to the desktop. If the laptop is 3 yrs old it should be WiFi ready. Bring it to Best-buy and ask, they can see it and answer questions and get you what you need. They are very helpful!

yes, you should be able to use both devices with the netgear router so long as they both either a physical or wireless adapter to connect to the router. Also for them to talk to each other they would need to be on the same network using similar protocols that create a genuine handshake between the two operating systems.
