I searched for this and tried the suggestions I found. Don't flame me yet. I'm trying to set up a new router at college. I remember when I got here I had to go through some authorization procedure on my computer in order to access the internet through their wired network. I have a Netgear WGR614v9. I tried connecting the wall port to both the WAN and LAN ports, but I cannot access the internet through it either way. When I connect it to the WAN port, the internet icon turns orange, which I believe means that it is connected but has no address. I've tried disabling the DHCP assignment, but it hasn't made a difference. I have not tried giving the router a static IP address yet, I'm not quite that network savvy. I know I could jerry-rig it with two computers, but unfortunately my roommate and I both have laptops and we're in and out all day. Has the university IT department defeated me?
