Hi,

Here is how to set up your new router.
1.connect your pc to an ethernet port on the netgear.
2.open up a browser,type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.put admin as user name and password as password.
3.when you are into the netgear under advanced go to WAN setup,check disable spi firewall and click apply.

Then to set up wireless:
1.click wireless settings under setup.
2.change ssid to your name or per your wish,region US,channel 11,mode g and b.
3.under security options i would go with wep,put in the security key and apply.

unplug power to all devices.connect your modem to netgear WAN,Netgear LAN to RT31P2 WAN,bring up the whole ntw starting from modem leaving 1minute before connecting the other device.

Rachel,

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that your netgear wireless router does not have QoS abilities which means that your telephone traffic will have equal priority as say your computer's traffic via a website.

Normally, this will result in choppy audio and poor phone connections.

My solution to this type of problem is to setup your network as follows:

Modem -> rt31p2 -> netgear -> computers connected wirelessly.

Now, in order for this to work such that your computers are networked among themselves requires some configuration. I have set up my system in this order and my wireless computer can acces my wired desktop and even share a printer. So here goes.

First, leave your rt31p2 connected the original way, cable from modem goes to the "internet" port.

Now, we need to do some configuration on your netgear, so connect your computer to port 1 of your netgear but make sure the netgear is not connected to anything else. Now power up the netgear and go to your computer, that is connected to it, open up Internet Explorer and type in the address of the web configuration. This should be found in your setup guide and it should also give you a username and password. Enter those things.

Then you will want to find where to disable DHCP. Save the disabling of DHCP.

Now, the last step is to change the IP address of your netgear so that it is on the same subnetwork of your rt31p2. Your rt31p2 is on 192.168.15.xxx so you want to change the IP address of your netgear to say 192.168.15.250. Save the changes.

Now you are ready to connect your netgear to the network.
Disconnect your computer from the netgear and connect an ethernet cable from port 1 of your rt31p2 to port 1 of your netgear wireless router. I want to emphasize that you will connect to port of your netgear, not to its "internet" port. Nothing should be connected to the "internet" port of your netgear.

If I understand you correctly, you want a computer connected via an ethernet cable, so connect that to either the netgear or the rt31p2. You can also now connect to the netgear wirelessly.

Both computers should have ip address is the subnet 192.168.15.xxx.

By the way, after connecting everything, make sure you turn everything off including modem etc for 5 mins.

Then turn them on in the following order:

modem (wait until all lights are solid)
rt31p2 (wait until phone 1 light is solid)
netgear (wait until it has established internet connectivity)
computers

Now you can establish a home network and have them share printers and folders if you wish.

hope this helps.

while i appreciate the help - this is all greek to me
i don't have ip addresses for these routers... the new one came with no paper documentation at all .. everything is on a disc which is how you install it

are you suggesting that my desktop connect wirelessly to the wireless router? i don't have a wireless connection to the desktop - only the laptop.. my desktop is currently connected via ethernet cable to the linksys... if i can't do that then i'd have to buy something else and i may as well try to return the netgear router and find something with a phone port...

what do you think?

Rachel,

We can take this one step at a time.

I was talking about connecting your laptop not your desktop wirelessly. I already surmised that your desktop connects via ethernet. In the setup I described, you can connect your desktop via ethernet to either the rt31p2 or your netgear wireless router. It would not matter which router it is connected to via ethernet.

Here is what I need you to do. For your netgear, on the bottom, there should be a label with a version number. Your router apparently has 7 different versions and so in order for me to help you, I would need to know the version # so that I could pull up the manual and help you walk through the process.

It's not as hard as it looks on paper. You will need to change 2 things on the netgear and it should be ready to connect to your network. Of course, if you want to secure it, those are additional steps that we can take later. I want to first get it to connect to the network to see if you can get on the internet wirelessly.

Does that sound good?

thanks Rachel. Are you ready for a ride?

First, go here and download the reference manual:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614v7.asp

The reference manual is in a little box on the left side, you will see first firmware and then below that is documentation.

You want to right click and choose save target as and save it on your computer. Then open it up using adobe acrobat.

Then we can start making the changes.

Okay Rachel,

I am assuming that you have downloaded your manual or obtained it from your CD.

Now go to page 24 (page 3-2) on your PDF reference manual and the heading should be "Logging Into Your Router"

Now, here is what I would like you to do. I am going to be thorough so if you have already done the step, skip it.

1. Plug in the power adapter that came with it to your netgear router.

2. Now take the ethernet cable and connect it to port 1 on your netgear router and the other end of the cable to your desktop computer. This will require you to disconnect your desktop from the rt31p2.

Make sure that only your desktop is connected to the netgear and that the netgear is not connected to anything else.

Okay, now I will refer to page 24 (3-2)

It says under step 1, to type into Internet Explorer the following address:

http://www.routerlogin.net

Then you should be prompted to enter a username and password. Use the following:

username: admin
password: password

make sure both are in lower case.

Now you should see the Netgear smart wizard and the Basic Settings.

If you look at the 3rd section, it says Internet IP Address

Here you will want to select "Use Static IP Address"

And type in the following:

IP Address: use 192.168.15.250
IP Subnet Mask: keep the same
Gateway IP Address: use 192.168.15.1

Now hit the Apply button at the bottom.

Let me know if you were able to successfully do this.

couldn't do it -
first of all - i must've changed the password when i was connecting the router the first time around... but that shouldn't matter...
i connected as suggested and went to http://www.routerlogin.net
and changed the selection to use static ip address but when i went to apply - it said - invalid subnet mask please enter again; invalid primary DNS address please enter again

any other ideas?

thanks
rachel

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for the PM.

For the subnet mask try putting in 255.255.255.0

For the DNS, make sure to select "Get Automatically from ISP"

Let's see if this works.
