I am trying to set up Netgear's wireless-n WNR2000 router, following their oversimplified 5- step process for plugging in wires, and I'm not having any success.
It comes down to: once everything is wired and turned on in the correct order, all of the LEDs match the image they give of 'what should be lit up', but their setup disk still doesn't find the router.
They have a site to set up the router manually, www.routerlogin.net, which I cannot navigate to, even while wired directly to the router.
http://192.168.1.1 doesn't connect to anything, either.
The interesting part: i get ping replies from Google's DNS server at 126.96.36.199 while this is set up. but cannot connect to any web site by name, since the router's DNS isn't set up.
One thought is that the router and modem both have the same IP address, so it's conflicting, but I'm not sure how I'd resolve that.
