Polremy Posted September 13, 2007 Share Posted September 13, 2007 Me again. Well, as I warned everyone, I seem to need advice again now that my wireless router has arrived. Have been trying to install it all morning. I have a sagem modem from Orange which works fine. I followed all the instructions for wiring up as given in the CD that came with the Netgear router. The router lights up the power light, the wireless light and the internet port light. But, when I disconnect the ethernet cable which runs from the modem to the computer and put it into the wireless router internet port, the modem stops working. So I guess that I am still only getting through to the internet through the modem and the router is just sitting there looking pretty but not actually doing anything. One thing that bothers me slightly is that the connection on the end of the modem wire is a different type (smaller and squarer) from that on the blue cable which came with the router and it doesnt click into the port as satisfyingly. Could that be the problem?I am talking Mac computer here.Please help. My trusted guru seems to have gone off on a cruise! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
