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 }

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


IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
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

IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
