You don't specify how you are connected to the router - wired or wireless? If you are wireless, is it possible to test via a wired connection?

Also, make sure you have the latest firmware for the router. It is available at the following URL:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products_automatic/MR814v2.asp

After you install the firmware, make sure you reboot the modem and the router.

i'm using a wired conncection. and what effect will upgrading the firmware have on the router? will it allow my port forwarding to work? and it says to copy all settings down as everything will be reseted. does that include my password for connecting to the net? cause i have to search for my password -_-
