YOU do not setup a router with a disc. You open your web browser and after reading the instructions on how to access it. Something like HTTP://192.168.0.1 is a common one, you normally get asked for user and password again the instructions.

First off exactly what router, model and version have you got, no one can help without that.

Secondly THERE IS NO SOFTWARE TO LOAD OR RUN, i.e. NO .exe files, it is all in the instructions, surely you must have them.

You access your router by a Web Browser, "INTERNET EXPLORER"

Now we have the model number :

Open Internet Explorer. In the Address Bar, type in http://192.168.1.1/basicsetting.htm and hit enter.
(or just 192.168.1.1 should work).
At this point, you may be prompted for a Username and Password, if you are, they should be "admin" and "password" respectively.

A google search will find this and a lot more.
You need the router's WAN port to appear the same as the IP address that your previous setup used to present to NTL ; if this was an ethernet connection, then it will be the IP address of your old ethernet card.
Otherwise you have to tell NTL that you have a router in line now and give it's WAN port address etc. to NTL so they can setup the infrastructure at their end to recognise/accept it.

I am reading the instructions and it states in section 3 Smart wizard setup if you can see the wizard in the browser then go to http://www.routerlogin.net
Two things can stop you seeing the router from the PC.
1 Internet Security is blocking the IP address, to enable it open Norton Internet Security and go to Security Basics, Personal Firewall, Configure Firewall, in Home networking run the Wizard.
2 PC is not even seeing the router, Click on Start, My Computer, select My Network places on the left, select View Network connections on the left, click once on "Local Area Network connected" If the local are network states disabled, then right click and enable, in the bottom left you should see IP address 192.168,X,Y, Subnet address and Assigned by DHCP, if not your PC is not talking to the router in the first place.
If you can not access the router by the wizard, note your address in the network places, example 192.168.0.5 in Internet explorer just change the last digit to a 1 and type in your result as http://192.168.0.1
User = admin, Password = password.

Hi,

Don't forget you need to have a WIRED connection from the laptop to the router on first connection. Wireless access is probably disabled initially for security reasons. Also, make sure you connect the modem to the Internet/WAN port and the PC to one of the numbered LAN ports.

Also a DSL/ADSL modem is no good for ntl through a STB or ntl modem. You need a cable route. Pluging the RJ45 cable from the modem into one of the switched ports wont work, you need to use the port marked WAN.

In your first post you mention a Belkin router and then later a Netgear - which is it? If it s a Belkin then on the two Belkin products I've used the default IP address has been 192.168.2.1 so you may wish to try that.

Hope this helps, Ed
