Hey,

I have tried everything, and I cannot get the router to connect to the
modem. Them modem works fine, and so does the router, I just dont know
enough about IP/Gateway/etc settings to do this.

I am sure this has been answered, but can anybody tell me what settings
I need to configure in to get a wireless router talking to a blueyonder
cable modem?

Thanks,
Phil Sturgeon

You need to unplug your PC from the cable modem then power-off the CM for a
couple of minutes, after that power-on the CM and let it get a firm
connection then plug in your router to the CM and power it on. When the
router has gone through the startup tests and got a green light on the WAN
connection plug in a wired PC and set-up the router.

You could have asked this in one of the Blueyonder self help newsgroups or
at www.cm-forums.co.uk

Bill

I'm hoping you may have given me the answer to a problem I have setting my
network up.
I had the router setup connected to cable modem then tried to connect laptop
via wireless. Should I have connected laptop prior to doing the initial set
up/configuration for the router?

It's usually wise to do the router setup via a cabled connection first just
in case there's any settings that you may need to enter for connecting to
your ISP. There's shouldn't be any wireless settings that need changing but
that may depend on your router manufacturer and the wireless crad you have
- defaults /may/ be different for each of them.

I'm not a wireless user (still in the stone age with a Netgear RT314) but
if you're having problems with your NTL connection you could visit the
forums at www.cm-forums.co.uk where some of the guys do use wireless.

Regards

Bill

Thanks again,
