Unlimited - But your bandwidth is split by the number of simultaneous active users. 4 active users means 1/4 of the bandwidth for each.

Most routers come with 4 ethernet wired ports on the back and the wirless deponds on the manufacture. But usuall the number of wired is unreal. I mean a lot. Check on the box of the one that you are interested in, or go to the web site to get more info on that model.

Simple - Get a DSL router - There is a port for the incoming telephone signal and a (CAT5e) port to go to your system or your switch. The default structure will probably work for you.

You need a network cable (yellow, green, or grey), it looks like a phone cable but thicker. You should also plug the power adapter into a surge protector. Next, plug the network cable into the dsl modem "out" and the router "in" jack. Next plug a PC into one of the other jacks on the router i.e. 1,2,3,4 etc. using the same type of network cable. You should be connected to the internet now! Just follow the instructions that came w/your router and there ought to be pictures to show you how this should work.

It is very simple to hook up a dsl with a router. It comes with easy instructions, but I will explain in simple terms. Basically you take the ethernet calbe that comes out of your dsl modem and plug it into the port that says input on the router, then you take another ethernet cable that comes with the router and plug it into the output of the router then plug the other end into your computer. Turn on the router and give it a few seconds and then you should be on the web. Good luck.

I bought a signal booster. You need to plug this into a wall outlet about midway between the router and where you need a stronger signal. My home isn't that big, but it's a spread out ranch. The signal booster solved my problem. I got the one recommended by the salesperson at Best Buy.

Robert,
Try raising the router as high as possible in whatever location you have it in. Just like a antenna, the higher the better. Also, you might check to see if there is a firmware update for the router (current firmware version is V1.0.0.40_32.0.54NA). Hope this helps.

This means that someone on your network has a static IP address and it is not reserved in the file server or the router. The router (or server) is handing out an address that is in use.

answer 6
It means that more than one of the devices on your network are trying to use the same IP address.

Short Answer: Your Internet provider Assigns you an IP address. (Internet address) - If you are using a router, the router assumes that address then hands out "Internal Addresses" to all of your other devices and allows you to "share" the one IP address. (everyone needs an IP address to acces the internet) -- More than likely, something on your network was assigned an IP address and does not want to "let go of it" and another device is trying to use the same internal address. Each device on your network should have its own unique IP (internal). Resolving the IP address conflict should speed things up and resolve the notification.

Greetings Nickii,

I will for the time being, assume you are running windows and have SOME knowledge of how to interact with it. If I am wrong, please reply.
If you're plugged directly into the router, you can first try to go to the following on your web browser (IE: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
10.0.0.1 (This is usually what the router's IP is if it is connected to a DSL connection such as Verizon or Embarq.
192.168.1.1 (This is the DEFAULT netgear router IP address).

If neither is working, plug in the computer directly to the router.
- - - - - - - -
Go to: Start
At the bottom, if you see "Run" Click it, otherwise in "Search" type: "cmd" (or when the Run window pops up type "cmd")

When the next window comes up, you can type:
"ipconfig"

This will give you the IP addresses of the computer, and the "Gateway", which is the router's IP address.

If you get an address like 169.x.x.x, you are not getting a proper IP address and it could be an issue related to security software, an issue with the computer, or possibly a problem with the router. Any of these issues can quickly be diagnosed in a Best Buy store, given the proper equipment.

192.168.1.1 - login with the user/password printed on the modem. that gets you into the modem. after that you can click on 'connected devices" to see what your connect IP address is - typically 192.168.1.2 thru .100

You should be able to find this by going to Attached Devices in the router's page. It's under the maintenance area. Type in your browser routerlogin.net If prompted, the username is usually admin and password is password by default.

You may also need to go to 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.0.1

You don't even need the router for this. You can share your internet connection with a wireless adapter from within Windows. Do a google search on internet sharing and create an ad-hoc network for that. Probably will need a second adapter as this is usually done with a wired connection for the internet and then shared out via the wireless adapter on the laptop

I don't think that you can connect the USB device to the Netgear N300 Wireless Router because it does not have a USB port. It only has an Internet/Wide Area Network (WAN) Ethernet port for connecting the router to a cable or DSL modem. You would necessarily need an Ethernet cable to use this router.

Effectively your mobile device is your internet service provider. If it has an ethernet output or "Cat5/6" cable, you should be able to make it work. Many of the mobile hot spots I have seen are purely wireless. Some have an ethernet port and some are USB. It needs to act as the equivalent of the modem devices provided by the ISP's.

Your desktop would need to be directly connected to the router, via ethernet cable. The other option is to purchase a USB wireless adapter. Both ways will provide you access to your network. The USB adapter would be preferred if the pc is not near to your router and you don't want a cable running through your house. Either option will not interfere with your laptop connection and both will easily stay connected simultaneously.

I don't have Comcast, but if it's anything like RoadRunner (Time Warner), you should be able to connect the router to the cable modem, then connect your PC to one of the four open ports on the back of the router. Your laptop would connect via the wi-fi signal from the router or you can physically plug it in to one of the other open ports.

Of course you can connect everything you want. But for the PC, you need a Wireless adaptor connected to the usb port, to get the wireless signal.
Go to the closest Best Buy and ask for a Netgear Wireles USB adaptor for Desktops computers. It's very easy to install...

Now you need to get on your routers settings so you can change your password so you don't have your access point open or may be you would like to share your internet with your neightbor that is your choice.

PS. Your desktop will have to have a Ethernet cable connected to your router and them you can play with the wireless connection on the other device (s) . good luck

Answer to first question is correct.
Just because you are sharing a router doesn't mean your laptop and desktop will share files. They are just sharing internet access.
Laptop will have access once you put in the passcode of your router.

First Question: That configuration is correct.
Second Question: As long as your laptop is correctly configured to connect to the wireless network on the router, when it has completed powering up, it will connect wirelessly to the internet. Depending on how fast your computer is, you may have to wait 1-2 minutes between when your computer gets into Windows and when wireless is available.
Third Question: Most Wireless-N routers have a guest network feature. With Guest Network feature enabled, you can uncheck the option to "Allow guest to access My Local Network".

Yes, your connection pathway is correct - I used the same setup for my Netgear router and it works perfectly. When you power up your laptop, it should automatically search for local wireless networks... If the router is working correctly, it will show as a new result and you can click it to access. You will probably need the password code that is listed on a sticker on the botton of the router to access the network from your laptop and any other devices in the home. I don't know for sure about sharing files, but my laptop and desktop are completely separate and do not have any files shared at all. I think you would have to set up a home network and choose an option to share files for this to happen; in my experience, which is limited, this will not happen automatically.

Your list of connections are correct. Make sure to use the correct port from router to cable modem!

A wireless laptop (or any other wireless device) can connect automatically IF the device is correctly configured to do so. This means naming your network on the router and setting up security. Use your desktop for these tasks.

Files on one computer will not be visible ("shared") to other computers unless you specifically set it up to do so.

the connestion sequence seems right, modem to router and router to PCs either wired or wireless.
connecting wireless is easy and done through setup. the router setup program is straight forward and lets you set up wepkeys and pass phrases to allow your devices to connect securely. (use some security and avoid the no security option.
you don't have to share files you don't want to with some or all of the computers on the network.

1.Yes you are correct.
2. If your laptop can detect the signal from the wireless router, it should be able to access the internet (as long as you use the security password which you configured during the router setup.Some wireless routers, like the NETGEAR, have a password already configured for each router; you can change it if you wish.)
3. Couple of different ways to do this:
- set up a "guest" access where guests can get internet access, but not access your private network.
- in windows, set up the laptop's access as "public" vs "home" network which will allow sharing
- in desktop, do not allow sharing of files with other computers on the network

Your connection settings are correct.

You should not be able to connect to files between your desktop and laptop unless you have file sharing turned on. Windows file sharing protection is separate from internet access via your router. Similarly, just because you connect via a laptop at Starbucks or Panera Bread along with a number of other laptop users, it doesn't automatically mean that everyone can see your files. Those settings should be configured on your PC. Additionally, you should have a password for your account on both systems.

Question

Does this router have to be connected to a modem?

I do not own a desktop, only a laptop. Would this router work by simply connecting it to a cable connection and enabling wireless compatibility?

Yes, a modem is needed to reach the internet with this router. You would have to find a hybrid of a modem/wireless router for that to be an option.

When I hooked mine up to my laptop I just plugged my cable connection to the router and then the router to my laptop and it set everything else up and I could unhook the connection to my laptop.

Yes, you must have a modem, which you'll get when you sign up for Internet service. You'll then get the signal to the modem, then connect the router. You'll also have to connect your laptop to the router initially, to configure it, set your wireless network name (SSID) and wireless password. You can then disconnect the cable, and surf wirelessly from then on.

You would have to connect the router to a modem. Once you do that, you can either use the WiFi capability, or connect your laptop hardwired (CAT 5 Cable) to the router.

Brittney,
Any router can be connected directly to a Modem, just ensure that the Modem is off, as well as the router, let everything off for 30 seconds, then connect.
Most of the newer Netgear routers come pre-configured for basic security, and they have the info on a little sticker. You can still direct wire in your laptop temporarily, to setup. Or just have the Geek Squad come out and set it up.
Some nicer routers, are the N600 Netgear series router, WNDR3700 series, is fantastic.

IF your cable connection is the source of your internet signal, it should work (Ours is AT&T). Some internet signals like Comcast have a black box which the router has to connect to for it to work (altho they also have a Wireless Gateway that has to be purchased thru them if your connection qualifies).
I connected one of these yesterday for a friend on Comcast and we connected thru Comcast black box and wireless signal immediately available. With some routers, you need to make an ethernet connection to router to get initial setup done and then you can disconnect and use wireless. Should be easy setup and Negear support is good as well as Best Buy's support. Also recommend whatever router has ethernet connection so that you have option of bein wireless or being directly connected.
