Im having trouble tryiung to set my mates Virgin internet up(internet only). I have connected the routher to the modem then connected the router to his PC then restarted the pc, however I cannot get the internet up on the pc. If I plug the modem straight into the pc, the internet works fine. My mate wants to set up a wireless connection for his latop, ipad etc so any help with this will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance guys Here are some pics

Thinking out loud i guess the Router Net Gear is not in the correct mode. Maybe ?
Is it the wrong subnet or range ?

Is it a Hub or a Router
is it a ADSL Router
Is it an ex SKY router ?

Its the stuff that virgin sent my mate. The virgin cable screws into the back of the modem then I I can connect an ethernet cable from the modem straight to the pc and the internet works.When I connect the modem to the router, Dlink Or the netgear, then connect the router to the pc, thats when the internet doesnt work. Spent 2 hrs at it before and felt I had had enough. Im not on virgin myself but I was going off the same principle as my connection at home and mine works a treat

When you connect the modem to router are you restarting the modem and router as well as the PC?
You need to check the internet light on the router is green not orange. (the 3rd light from the left.
check the tick light is out.

if the above is all ok go to the command screen on your PC and see what the IP address is. should be something like 192.168.0.2 (although the 2 can be any number really.) if it is see if you can ping the router from the pc address 192.168.0.1 if you can next try pinging a website such as www.bbc.co.uk or www.google.co.uk

From the pictures it looked like you had the white cable in the router,so the set up is white cable into modem, blue cable from modem to router,and cable from router to pc, connection should light up green globe on router, make sure all connectors are pushed well in, good luck

The white virgin cable is connected to the modem and not the router, its a screwed up connection. No way of attaching this cable to the router.
