Questions & Answers for Netgear - Wireless-N Router - Black

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?

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.

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..

Hope that helps

Your upgraded modem from your cable company will replace this router, as it will have its own wireless router built in.

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.

this is just a router however Comcast should be able to give you a list of companionable units for their system, I have Time Warner and they gave me a list of combo modem routers and separate units. I save about 20 a month after 10 months to recoup the cost

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.

If you use DSL(ADSL, xDSL....), connect the DSL to this router. This is NOT a modem.

No unfortunately wifi is not like a cell phone that uses satellites and towers. You will need to purchase a internet package from either a phone or cable company ( cable being the better ). They will supply you with a modem that you can then plug a computer into for Internet via a Ethernet cord or you buy a router wich acts like a tower giving you wifi ( Internet ) in a small area like your home.

answer 4
Where is the coaxial coming from? If it originates from a box elsewhere there should be a component or HDMI output somewhere. Otherwise pick up one of these (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/monoprice-component-ypbpr-s-pdif-digital-coax-optical-toslink-audio-to-hdmi-converter-rev-2-0/1309329076.p?id=mp1309329076&skuId=1309329076) I haven't personally used it but seems like your only option if there's no other output from the wall/box.

answer 2
You'll need an internet provider to get internet and depending on where you live and which provider you use and how much speed you require, your bill will range from $30 to over $100 a month. If you can't afford the bill and still require internet, you'll need to get a library card and use the free internet at your local library. You can also find free wifi at many McDonalds, StarBucks or other retail locations. Good luck.

You basically can't. You could use your cell phone as a hot spot but the data transfer rates would get expensive. You're only other option is to piggyback off a neighbor's signal with their permission.

Question

How to stop Netgear WNR2000v3 from disconnecting periodically from internet

I have tried resetting to default setting, updating drivers--it said the firmware was already updated, when I tried to adjust settings in the wireless section of the netgear genie, I wanted to try changing the channel, it gave me an error message "wps changes cannot be applied now, try later"--paraphrasing. I found advice online to set up with the pin # instead of push button, but it is not clear if there is a pin on the back of the router, nothing is marked as pin. Do you have any suggestions? Or if I need to buy a new one, which one do you recommend to use with Comcast?

This could be a hardware issue. Did you contact netgear support? This router has a lifetime hardware failure warranty. Open a ticket with them and you can get a new product. Bear in mind, you have to pay shipping cost though!
