Up until when I setup this new modem, I not only had a fine connection, but a fine wireless connection. However, with the new modem in place my router never picks it up. So therefore, no wireless network. It's fine for mum, the modem is more or less plugged right into her computer, but not so good for the rest of us. I'll give a laydown of my setup and if anyone could please help me in as simple, straight forward terms as possible, I'd be very greatful.
Alright, picture tutorial time:
That's the Speedtouch. Upon having these problems with the new setup, tried to put the Speedtouch back but it won't connect anymore. Stupid thing. EDIT: Got the Speedtouch connected again. And the router's Internet light is fine, it's sharing. So...an ancient, Thompson modem gets on better with NETGEAR wireless router than a new NETGEAR modem...What the... man. Explain?
The NEW modem however;
connects fine, as you can see. That's the connection I'm currently using to type this.
This is how everything fits together as I have labelled. Baring in mind, this setup has been working fine until the new modem. The new modem gets a connection, shares it to the PC from that lil box, but the router won't pick it up anymore.
As seen here, it has power, it's got wireless, but the Internet light remains a heart-shatteringly orange colour.
Any thoughts, steps to fix, ANYTHING would be appreciated. Waiting eagerly by, thank you.
