    I am trying to connect two computers to the internet using a gateway WGR-200 wireless broadband router. One computer will be a wired connection and one will be a wireless connection. I have a cable internet connection and can access the internet when I connect directly to the modem but when I connect through the router I can't access the internet. Can someone please help?

    have you set up the router correctly
    with cable do you use a username and password
    OR
    do you have a fixed IP address

    you need to set up which ever you use in the router itself

    i look up the manual

    I have the router set up correctly as far as the cables are concerned, but I'm not sure about the router settings itself. I don't have a static IP address, but the LAN IP address for the router fixed.

    I don't use a user name and password to connect to the modem. The cable runs from the wall to the modem, then from the modem to the WAN connection on the router. The lights on the router indicate a green light for the WAN connection and flashing orange lights for the wireless and LAN connections. I have used this router with previous internet connections in another house(DSL) and as far as I can tell, the settings and connections are the same now as they were then.

    ok lets start with the LAN cable connection and worry about wireless later

    can you go onto the PC and post an IPCONFIG and also try the pings - see below

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    start
    run
    cmd
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.


    NEXT lets see if you can get out onto the internet with both names and IP's - its possible the IP number you get back on the first test is different to the one I post {I'm in UK} so use the number you get instead of mine

    ------------------------------------------------
    try ping the name and then the IP see below

    start
    run
    cmd

    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping {the default gateway ipaddress you got above }


    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping google.com
    C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping 64.233.187.99

    Are you sure this is the right way round
    google.com - 4 packets received
    number - 0 packets received
    can you copy and past here - same as you did with IPCONFIG


    Lets deal with IP routing - you have ICS Internet connection sharing enabled
    Go to
    control panel
    Network connections
    right click on the lan connection
    properties
    advanced tab
    see if ICS ticked
    Untick that

    oh
    you have
    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
    which normally means ICS is ticked
    have you checked all the network connections
