I have a Netgear WGR614 v4 wireless router that I'm trying to connect to SBC Yahoo. And I can't get it to connect to the internet. My comp connects to the net when the NIC is connected directly to the modem. But when I try and set it up through the router, it won't connect to the modem. It say "No modem found". Just to check the router, I tried my old trusty Linksys BFSR41 wired router, and it won't recognize the modem either. I never had this kind of trouble with cable internet. And I'd still have it except I'm in a new house where they'd have to bury new lines in order for me to get it. So, I'm stuck with DSL. And this problem. I logged on to my router and tried setting it up with my SBC Yahoo ID and password, tht didn't work either. The problem is between the router and the modem. Any ideas here? SBC and Netgear have useless support.

what kind of cable are you using? Some routers use a crossover, some use a straight thru cable from router to modem
good luck

I had a heck of a time getting my DSL to work with routers as well. The first router didn't work at all and the second one took upwards of three hours of work. :( Personally I think its the DSL modem's fault. The modems SBC ship are crap.

I replaced the modem and the troubles are gone.
