    Hi,

    I have a Netgear WNDR3700 router and I’m having troublegetting it recognized by my network. My connection layout right now is theservice provider modem connected to the Netgear router and from the Netgearrouter to my laptop all by ethernet. I called Netgear and they say it’s an ipconflict problem, but they won’t help me fix it without charging me $40. All mysetting are set to automatic ip address assigning. I’ve tried anipconfig/release and renew but that didn’t work and I’ve tried a static ipaddress on the router but it still did not recognize it. Any ideas? This iswhat I’m getting for ip addresses.

    you have different IP address for the ethernet v wireless

    wireless
    IPv4 Address.. . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.254.12
    DefaultGateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.254.1

    ethernet
    IPv4 Address.. . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.101

    Hi,

    From the looks of it you have a static IP address for Ethernet and a DHCP address from your wireless router. I'm guessing as you have the Ethernet connected that this is taking priority over Wifi and because its a different subset you can't rout to the router.

    To removing the static IP from the Ethernet settings and then disabling the Wifi, this should the get you online. also you may need to restart your machine to flush the DNS settings.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
