I had problems also but, I found out that the Netgear router and the Westell modem/router, provided by Verizon DSL, had the ip address of 192.168.1.1 I had to change the ip address f the Netgear router to 192.168.7.1 to get things to work.
Provided a link of the problems I had. It may help you find what you are looking for.
Hope this helps.
I've tried the NetGear WGR614v6 router setup wizard CD quite a few times with no success. I have a Dell E1705 running Windows XP with an Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG. The setup wizard for the router recognizes my modem and broadband (DSL) connection as active when plugged in directly to the computer. I then have followed the various steps in disconnecting then reconnecting and powering up the modem and router. All the necessary lights are on. Once I get the screen ?Restarting Your Network?, the progress bar continues to a level less than 100% then automatically clicks to the next screen, which is white/blank and seems to stop. This has happened about a dozen times.
I run Norton Personal Firewall and Antivirus but disabled both before attempting the setup. Also, the DSL provider is BellSouth while I use AOL?s software to login to the Internet. I can also use Internet Explorer for the Internet.
Is there anything else I need to do to the wireless setup on the computer before I try the router setup again? Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and trouble.
