No, this is purely an internet router, switch and wireless access point. It's connected to your modem via a network cable.

No, you connect it to the WAN port coming from your high speed internet provider. It does not connect to a telephone line.

No, why do you want to connect a internet router to the phone??
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 3
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.

You need an internet provider to get internet. Rates are dependent on which speed/provider you use.

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!

Question

How do I install without the CD?

I've misplaced the Installation CD that goes with my upgrade to WNR2000 (N300).
Can I simply use the Installation CD that goes with my old WGR614 (G54), or
could I download the proper installation files from the net?

I have a related query. My Comcast service provides 105 Mbps. Speedtest with my G54 router indicates I'm getting 95 Mbps d/l, 12 Mbps u/l. What can I expect to gain with the upgrade N300 router.

Thank you for your response.

answer 4
You are never going to actually get the 105mbps no matter which router you use. There will be a loss at some point in your connection. The best thing you can do is put the best hardware you can on your side to ensure it's not your side causing the problem.

As per installation. You should not need the cd for installation. There should be an ip address that is default for it printed somewhere and if you plug in wired you should be able to use that ip address in the address bar of your browser to get to the router. Once there, you should be able to set it up.

answer 5
You would need to go their support website to obtain the information or if you are IT savy you can simply go to the IP address of the device and set everything up within.

Your internet speed is based on best effort and even though you are upgrading your router don't expect to see a real difference in speed.
-Companies like comcast provide internet to multiple residents over the same pipe and that is why you will see fluctuations at times. This router is capable of doing over 200mb I believe so in theory you should be able to do what comcast provides you. Also your speed is only as fast as your devices NIC.

Your NIC is the network card in your device and some are only capable of doing 10/100MB and nothing more.

Not that I have seen but the power suppy uses a common connection. I was able to use the power supply/cord from my Linksys router on the Netgear router. You might go through your junk drawer full of old powere cords and cables and find one that works. Good luck.
