Comcast Business recognizes that customers increasingly demand a secure and private WiFi solution to satisfy the business’ internal wireless networking needs. To meet this need, Comcast Business offers a Netgear N300 Wireless Router (Model No. WNR2000) that can be connected to your Comcast Business Internet Gateway.
Note: This article applies to the Netgear N300 wireless router. Information on the Cisco Business Wireless gateway device can be found here.
The router front panel has the following status LEDs and buttons:
The back panel has the following buttons, ports and connector:
The label on the back panel of the router shows the default login information, default WiFi network name (SSID), network key (also referred to as wireless network password or passphrase), serial number, MAC address and other information.
The Netgear wireless router can be set up in one of two ways: AP mode or NAT over NAT.
AP Mode requires an additional step of enabling AP mode, and provides seamless access to internal resources:
Provide a seamless network with all devices in the same IP range
Network printers previously installed on a computer will continue to work.
If attempting to add a new network printer on a wireless computer, the printer will be discoverable.
Setting up the WNR2000 as an Access Point (AP mode):
Select Advanced-Advanced Setup-Click Wireless AP
NAT over NAT provides a simple solution to get to the internet for employees. It does not grant seamless access to the business' internal network. If factory reset, the device will default to NAT over NAT.
Will no longer be available as mapped network drives.
The resource will be available by IP address, but not by hostname.
If attempting to add a new network printer on a wireless computer, the printer will not be discoverable.
This is considered a private network in that it is separate from the Xfinity WiFi hotspot.
This will not provide a seamless network as there will be two separate IP ranges.
If a you factory-reset the router, it will return to the factory configuration settings below:
No, the router login username cannot be changed.
To log into a Netgear router, in your web browser, navigate to the router login page:
http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com
http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
Note: You can usually find the login URL on a sticker on the bottom or back of the router.
Log into your router and select Advanced, then select the Administration section on the left-hand menu. Select Set Password, then enter the old and new password, then confirm the new password. Select the Apply button to save your change.
Log into your router
From the left-hand menu, select Wireless Settings from the Set Up section.
In the Name (SSID) field, enter the network name you want to use.
Under Security Options, select a security encryption level. WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK offers the best protection.
In the Passphrase field, enter your chosen network password.
Select the Apply button to save your changes.
Log into your router using the "How do I log into my router?" instructions above. From the left-hand menu, select Wireless Settings from the Set Up section. Enter a new wireless network password into the Passphrase field under your security selection and select the Apply button to save your changes.
Note: Removing the wireless network password will leave your network unsecured and vulnerable to users with malicious intent. It is not recommend to leave your network unsecured; you do so at your own risk.
To reset your router to factory defaults, use a pen or paperclip to press and hold the Reset button for approximately 10 seconds until the Test light blinks. Release the button and wait for the router to reboot. Factory-resetting the router will remove all custom settings that may have been configured on the device, including AP mode.
Any number of devices can be connected wirelessly to the router; however, performance might noticeably decrease with each additional device. Three to five devices should be able to use the same wireless connection without a noticeable decrease in network responsiveness.
Live Parental Controls powered by OpenDNS allows you to filter web content. You can block more than 50 different categories of sites for everyone connected to the Internet through your Netgear router or customize blocking for individuals.
