  1. router: NETGEAR Rangemax WNDR3300

    I been at this all friggin day.. yesterday the electric company shutoff the electricity for a little bit and ever since then my router hasn't been working....

    my network icon has been saying "Limited or no connectivity"

    I even reformatted my computer

    i reset my modem (ARRIS TM602G) and router a million times...

    I can't access www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.16.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.0

    When i run the setup CD that came with the router it says "can't detect modem"

    I tried ipconfig /release then ipconfig /refresh (something like that) and still nothing........

    someone on the netgear forums suggested I change the speed/duplex setting to "Force 100 Full Duplex" and the rest to:


    * Checksum Offload: Enable
    * Flow Control: Disable
    * IEEE802.1P Support: Enable
    * Jumbo Frame Payload Size: 1500
    * Low Power State Link Speed: Disable
    * Network Address: Not Present
    * Optimize For: Throughput
    * Segmentation Offload: Enable
    * Speed/duplex settings: Full autonegotiation
    * VLAN Id: 1
    * VLAN Support: Disable
    * Wake on Magic packet: Disable
    * Wake on pattern: Disable
    * WakeOnLAN From PowerOff: Disable

  3. Best answer
    If a person makes the same mistake a million times, it is still a mistake, no matter how sure they are that it isn't a mistake.

    Eliminate error possibilities. Is the router connected correctly? (Here's the million times mistake thing)

    I ask this because in another post, the person was plugging their router's "Internet" port to their computer and their internet source to
    a switched port. (The port might say "Uplink" rather than "Internet")

    Internet source (Cable modem, ADSL modem) goes to the "Internet" port of router (or "Uplink").
    Computer goes to a numbered port on router.

    You may have it right, nobody here can see your system. If it's right, reset the router and try again. If still no-go, router needs firmware re-load or be tossed.
