    ok. I spent a week on this. And here’s how I did it. Right now I’m on the internet wirelessly with my laptop, while my main hardrive computer has internet, and any friends who come over with their laptops/psp systems can get online as weel. How you do it:

    1. You can’t not be connected somewhere. The Netgear router must be plugged into a computer to work, and be able to give you internet. Trick is to make your big computer (hopefully you have one) your main “hub” or internet command center lol. (maybe there is a way to connect to a router without a computer, but I don’t think so).

    2. Hook up your modem to your router and your router to your main computer. Follow that netgear intruction cd to the letter. I had many problems off the bat. First it couldn’t detect it, then it wouldn’t recognize it. What you need to do there is unplug the modem, the router, and then, plug the modem BACK in and wait 2 minutes. no more no less. plug your router back in and try again. hopefully you should get a prompt. and all that.

    3. Admin is user name. Password is password. These didn’t work for me AT ALL. I resetted everything. What made it work was when i unplugged the router, held the reset button on the back (tiny pinhole) and plugged it back in while still holding onto the button. Hold for 20 seconds, then release. it will reset and work.

    4. Finally you’re on.

    I explained a little more in detail, I’m very excited to be on and want to help others with this stupid ass router because I went through a Boondar in Delhi India, and an Edgar in Texas before finally getting it to work on my own. So to answer your question simply, you can’t have wireless internet through your router unless your router has a main computer to plug into. At least I’ve never heard of anything different. Maybe I’m wrong.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!
