Same old question, but I cannot get my Netgear Wireless router to connect to my webstar cable modem. I follow the wizard set up instructions. But never get a connection.I have a perfect wireless connection. Although I perform the set up via a ethernet from laptop to router to modem. I am in The Netherlands using a Caiway cable modem and PPPoE internet connection. Of course, I still can connect to internet via ethernet direct from laptop to modem.
But, I have been trying this for a whole week with a sitecom wireless router. I was then advised that Caiway only recommend certain routers. Hence, this Netgear WGR614 v9. Aaaargh!

In the UK, Cable broadband *DOESN'T USE* a PPPoE connection, the router just gets its addresses dynamically by DHCP from the Cable Modem. Try using this option for your connection in the Netherlands.

Also, when swapping a connection to the Cable Modem, it should be powered off and left without power for several minutes, so that it releases the association between the existing connection (recognised by its MAC address) and the IP address it has allocated to it. It will then find a new connection and allocate a different IP address to it.

Thanks mgmcc.
I switched the modem off connected to the router then waited for 15 mins before switching on. Still no internet!
The router wizard detects that I have a PPPoE connection and I leave it's setup default to automaticaly find ISP address. When press apply it tries to connect, but returns to the setup page. I'm pretty sure I have to manually configure the router, but I'm unsure as to which information I need to use. The following is pasted from my current config. ie: laptop connected via ethernet to modem.(My normal internet connection) Also the router wirlessly connected
