We have moved and wont have internet connection for some weeks.
I want to setup the wired network so I can access printers, NAS etc in the meantime.
The property has been pre-wired and I have plugged the ADSL Modem router into the correct outlet, plugged the printer into its outlet, powered them all on and "Nothing"
I tried resetting everything, downloading Netgear genie and still nothing. I tried plugging in a VOIP phone to see if it would show up, but Nope.
The Modem does keep yelling at me that it can't connect to the internet, which it obviously can't as we don't have a service. Do I have to tell it to stop trying or turn off the modem part of the router?
So I had 2 thoughts
1) someone else will have done this and will have written a guide, because I need to reconfigure something
2) maybe the cables are broken, but not sure of a simple way to check this without buying a tester
I would be eternally grateful if someone can point me in the right direction
The router is a Neatgear DGND3700v2, Xerox printer and a home made Freenas NAS box
