Hello there I am trying to connect the Netgear WGT624 v3 to the Dynalink modem RTA 1320 v6.
I don't have the install CD for it and I have tired installing it manually via the webpage with no luck.
Usinng the setup wizard and the other way.
I can get the Dynalink to connect the internet on it's own but I just can't get the netgear and the dynalink to work together.

I have tired calling My ISP and Netgear with no luck, I am trying to set it up on a windows vista laptop.
 
I can't download an install CD and I can't find any ways to sort my problem on the internet.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you been to this page at Netgear, it links to a page on what to do with no CD.

[Edit] Sorry, reread your post and see that you have.

So Windows Vista laptop to Dynalink modem works but doesn't when you put the Netgear router inbetween.

The install CD will be no use to you because it uses the wizard and configuration from the router's web interface.

Check cabling.
If you are putting the additional cable between the router and the modem then try swapping with the PC cable to check that's not the problem.
I expect that both router and modem have ports that automatically handle crossover and straight through cables so that shouldn't be a problem.

Have you completed the troubleshooting procedures in chapter 7 of the manual?

Yes I have checked all cabling I have done resets on the router and I have all setting set to obtain settings  automatically.

I just went to have a look at the Dynalink modem RTA 1320 v6 and found that it is a router.

So you have two routers - they both can't do some of the same things. You'll have to turn DHCP off on the Netgear router and connect them LAN port to LAN port.

There will be more threads on adding Wifi to a wired network so search for "two routers" or similar and see what they say.

Connecting routers LAN to LAN only solves double-NAT problems (NAT blocks incoming traffic on VoIP etc) by bypassing the second router, but we dont yet know exactly what is causing this one.

Have you connected your dynalink to the Netgear's WAN port? If not try that to get a working double-NAT setup, although you might need to change the LAN IP range that one of the routers uses. Another (better) way is to turn your ADSL router into a modem by selecting PPP "bridge" mode so that all PPP username/password stuff has to go into the Netgear. Then you would have eliminated the double-NAT as well as getting the external IP address directly onto the WAN side of your Netgear.

I am assuming it is a Wan port the diagram on the back of the netgear says "Internet" this is the port that I have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the other end of that goes to the lan on the dynalink. then I have 4 Lan ports and I have a Ethernet cable running from port 1 to my laptop.

I will try the thing with the PPP So I will have the netgear sending the user name and password rather than the dynalink. I have not tried that.

Thank you's for all your help so far I would have a crack at it in the morning.
