I currently use a Netgear N600 DGND3700v2 as my router/modem combo for my house. This modem works great with my CenturyLink DSL connection. Below are the steps to setup your Netgear N600 with a CenturyLink Internet connection.
I am assuming you know how to hook up the cables. If you’re not sure how to hook up the cables, please refer to this document. Once you have the cables connected to the modem you are ready for step one.
Step One: Plug the Ethernet cable from the LAN port on your NETGEAR N600 Router/Modem and the other end into your laptop.
Step Two: Open your browser and go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to start configuration of this modem. If you can’t get the IP Address to work, go to http://www.routerlogin.net that should bring up the configuration page as well.
Step Three: Enter the username and password. The default username and password for the Netgear N600 DGND3700v2 is admin and password.
Step Four: You can have the modem try picking up your connection settings, however it seems to struggle most times trying to find the settings. Here is how to enter the settings manually.
Go to the Advanced Tab > Setup > Internet Setup
Does your Internet Connection require a login? No
Internet IP Address: This will depend on your connection. If you are a home owner more than likely you are getting a dynamic IP Address from CenturyLink. If you aren’t sure, select get Dynamically from ISP.
Domain Name Server Address: You can use any public DNS servers. I like OpenDNS DNS servers: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
Router MAC Address: Use Default Address and Save Your Settings
Go to the Advanced Tab > Setup > ADSL Settings
Multiplexing Method: LLC-BASED
DSL Mode: Auto
Save your settings and you should be set! If the above settings don’t work for you, sound off in the comment section below!

Because my modem died. I have no WiFi net work so I can’t get a connection to type in the up. What can I do?
Net gear says I have the wrong router/modem. It is. N600. I tried to follow your instructions for century link, but the screens in net gear genie are different so I do have the same options as in your article. Best Buy does not carry low end modems anymore model c3700v2 is what the genie says. I’m screwed
