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

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.
