I just got a new router today, and I'm having trouble setting it up. I entered in all that ip and DNS address stuff, but now it says the network adapter is not responding. Since I'm lazy and don't feel like explaining each step, I'll just post a screenshot of them:

In case you're wondering how I'm making this post, I'm using my old router. It's an SMC 7004VWBR.

Step 1:

I've tried the second and third options, and neither of them worked.

Here's the info on the internet connections.

Unless you use them, disable 1394 and that dial-up connection. The third option, the Intel PRO/1000MT is the one you want.

Aside from that, is it possible to set it up without using the Netgear wizard thing? We've got a Netgear VPN Firewall here which I had the joy of setting up. It's a pig. Complete and utter pig.

It's a setup wizard for his router. Problem we had with ours is that Netgear's hardware seems to insist that you complete that wizard before you can change anything manually. Which makes life difficult if it gives you an error and you can't complete the damn thing.

I got past that part once I figured out I wasn't supposed to hook up the new router yet, but now, after I hook up the new router when it tells me to, and it starts restarting the network, it stops when it's halfway done. It says "no connection was detected". I followed all the instructions, so I have no clue what to do.

I haven't worked with netgear so pardon me if this sounds rediciulous, but have you tried navigating in your browser to eithier 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 and then checking to make sure your NetGear base station is recieving the internet connection, and if it is if there is not a setting thats specifically not broadcasting on the same frequency as your adapter.

If you have to call the tech support for your router with any frequency, it's probably not worth using the router.

Not to mention it would be at least somewhat contributive and constructive if you were to actually name the router/company that you're talking about.

Thats just it though i've had two different routers and to me thats plenty reason to say just call the company. For whatever reason i made it sound like it's always the router but usally im the reason why the router dies on me, i have to call support and then it comes back to life. For example i use to be the one stuck with the router and modem in my room so i couldn't get any sleep and my mom didn't want me covering it so sometimes i just turend the power off on the thing and well that not healthy for the router or the modem. I did alot of stupid shit with my router and i know it's all my fault when it dies on me but either way with the both of them tech support was always the easiest option for me.

And sorry for not making an attempt to be constructive, i mean why oh why did i say anything in the first place?

I did name it. and it also said the router name in the pics.

My parents decided to hire someone to fix it lol.
