Replacing Gateway with Wireless Router
Posted on 2004-03-31
I am trying to replace a land-line Gateway (D-link dl-604 residential gateway) with a wireless router (Netgear MR814). So I do just that. But it does not connect to the internet (the I.E. browser keeps giving me "Page not found error"). I have 90-days unlimited installation support from Netgear so I call the tech support and the person walks me through all the steps required to connect. It still does not work. So he asks me to try connecting the PC (Windows XP Home) directly to the cable modem (Toshiba PCX 1000) but even that does not work. At this point, he says, it is a problem with the cable modem and cannot help.
So now I put the gateway back between the cable modem and the PC and everything is fine. No problems with the internet. What am I missing? Please help. TIA
