Having just converted to a router from a standard modem, I feel for you! Do the lights on the router indicate that it is connected? If so, the router is working OK, so the problem could be with the way the computer is set up to connect to it. It took several goes with mine before it all worked OK.

check all wires are connected as it should it a direct connection or addition it is picking up the address automatically...

if it does not connect to the server which means it is generally your ISP not netgear you need to get in contact with...which i think you said BT if im correct

Sorry been so long responding have a lot of medical problems and have to rest pm .Firstly Iv'e not changed my password at all Netgear advised on that,with regards Bt you might as well talk to the wall they checked line o/k then stated as it was third party device they could not help oh and gave a tel/no to ring tocheck status which said there was no b/band a bit strange as i was asking for help on here and phoning at the same (with old modem) oh yes it is a wired unit many thanks

Can I ask what your setting is in the Internet explorer connection properties are? choices are > never >only when network connection not present > always my default connection .

  drybones 18:09 21 Nov 2006

use this as a login no password User: [email protected]_domain
if it connects then your equipment is ok if not login to your router and see what it is telling yoy on the status screen
