In the past I had two network lines coming into my router and recently one of them dissappeared.  Does anyone know of how I can reestablish the second one?

 Not sure what you mean.  Please provide more details on exactly you are trying to do.

I'm with @No1Mportnt in that I have no idea what you mean by that.


I chip in only to say that this isn't the best place to find earlier conversations about the R6220.


You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's impenetrable community structure.)


Most questions are common to many devices, but you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:

Thank you for your reply.  I live in a building that supplies two lines of different speeds and up until recently I was getting both through my router and now I am only getting one of the two.  I've restarted my router and PC several times and that has not solved the problem.

   "lines"?  Ethernet, or what?  From where?


> [...] up until recently I was getting both through my router [...]


   I don't see how.  Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your
model number, and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at
least).  Read.  Can you find any place where it describes connecting
multiple "lines" that way?


   What, exactly, did you connect to what, exactly?  (Hint: If a device
has different types of Ethernet ports, then "connected to device" is not
enough detail.)


> [...] now I am only getting one of the two.

   "getting"?  Not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

   When you were "getting" both "lines", how, exactly, did you choose
between them?



> Not sure what you mean.


   I doubt that anyone here knows what you mean.  Or believes that you
could do what you seem to claim.
