Netgear FVS318G cannot connect to Internet
Posted on 2011-03-09
I am using a Netgear FVS318G firewall router that connects to the Internet via a D-Link DSL-320 ethernet modem.
This replaced an FVS318v3 that was problem free for many years until it blew last month.
However, it keeps dropping the Internet which Netgear finally told me, when I managed to get through to the Ireland=based helpdesk, was down to the earlier poor quality firmware. Many people have had the same problem, however, now I can't connect to the Internet - before and after the firmware update.
I can connect using the D-Link modem only and the Netgear is picking up all the DNS connection details correctly (the correct WAN IP, Demon DNS server, but no Internet.
I can't see anything blocking it and have tried connecting it directly to two PCs.
Where am I going wrong?
