I have just Bought a Netgear wireless ADSL modem router. I run the Netgear Setup wizard, i follow all instructions correctly but when the wizard tries to reset the router it comes up with

Connection to Router Unavalible because Ethernet cable unplugged at either the router or PC

- The ethernet cable is plugged in securely.

Please Help, and Is this because my ethernet port is not Configured Correctly - if it is how do i go about Doing this?.

Thanks

Marc.

when you configured the router...did you change any of IT"S ip addresses? if so...once the router resets...and you get the message you're getting...try pressing start > then run > then type "cmd" then type "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes on all of those) then try to get to the router again

Didnt Work :whistling:, here is what the error message says ,

During the network activation process the Wizard was not able to detect the router.

You must make sure that the router is plugged in and powered up.

If you have more than one network card in your computer you MUST remove or disable the device that is not connected to the router.

The yellow Ethernet cable must be completely inserted into the ports on both the computer and the router.


Do you mabey think that my Ethernet Port isnt working? :blink:

Thanks.
