Hello, I'm switching to cable internet service instead of DSL. My Netgear router will not work with my cable modem; but it works like a charm with my DSL modem. Is it a problem with the router setup? Good thing I still have the DSL service.

You may have to adjust the routers internal settings or set it back to factory default by pressing the reset button.

Thanks. I figured it out! The DSL use POP setting requiring username and password. Once I figure that out, I clear the DSL setting on my router, and use the router setup wizard to configure the new modem setting. It worked.
