Solved: Securing a Netgear WGT624v3 wireless router

Q: Solved: Securing a Netgear WGT624v3 wireless router

Hi I would like to password protect my Netgear WGT624v3 wireless router but I can not access the Netgear settings page. I have always had a problem with this. The Netgear WGT624v3 wireless router is connecting to a Linksys BEFSR41v3 router. This reason for this is because the modem and Linksys BEFSR41v3 router is in my basement and I am on the 3rd floor of the house. The wireless router will not work from my basement so I have it with me on the 3rd floor. When I try to access the settings page for the Netgear router using it is sending me to the Linksys router settings page. Can anyone help me with this issue please? I am pretty sure my neighbors are using my wireless router and it's been slow the past couple of days. Thanks!

I feel like a dunce not setting up password protection for my Netgear Wireless Router model WNR 2000 v1 when I had the free tech support. Now they are willing to give me directions through email for how to do it, but it all starts with "registering my router and then they say a "pop up" option will appear to create a login. Well the problem is that I'm already registered, and I can't get the pop up option to appear. There must be a way to get to the wireless password protection without having to register the router again. Any Netgear help out there?

A:securing Netgear CG814 router

I couldn't find anything about that model on Netgear's web site, but here is the support page for the CG814M, which should be similar. Download the reference manual to your computer for easy access.

The general procedure is to login, assign a login password, make sure that remote (internet) configuration is not allowed unless you are going to use that feature, and use WPA(2)-PSK encryption (AES is best, but TKIP is OK).

How to login begins on page 2-8 of that manual.

Heres my dilemna, I have installed a netgear wireless router for me (Win2000) and a usb wireless nic card for another pc in the house, to share my internet connection. The router seems to be configured correctly, i have a cable internet connection so my router is configured for dhcp to get ip's from the cable connection my pc runs flawlessly, i also have inplace the necessary wireless security. But my issue is the other (Win98) wireless workstation, it can see my SSID on the network and my connection is reading at 65% but it doesnt seem to see the router i have the worstation configured for dhcp from the router but for some reason they dont see eachother I dont understand why? if i run ipcofig on the win98 pc i get a apipa address instead of a dhcp ip address that my router should be pushing out just like it does for my pc???

I just connected a linksys WRT54G version 8 wireless G router to a desktop computer in my apartment that's directly connected to the internet via cable. I have a desktop pc in the next room with a WUSB11 version 2.6 linksys adapter. I'm trying to connect to the main computer's internet connection. When I first set up the router, everything worked fine. The second computer was connected with the wireless adapter. As soon as I secured the network, that second computer couldn't connect anymore. I've tried both WPA and WEP, and my wireless connection settings on the second computer are configured correctly according to the linksys site and various other places with instructions on the web. I've rebooted my router, reset passwords, tried disabling that wireless zero thing in windows administration tools I've read about online, and looking through every option on that linksys router website ( Any more suggestions? I'm a Windows XP home user.

Just so we're clear. If you disable encryption on the link, you connect fine, but any encryption on the router inhibits the wireless machine from connecting?

Have you tried using only WZC and not the adapter's wireless client?

Hi everyone,

I purchased a PSP just before Christmas last year. As I already have broadband, I thought I would buy a wireless router so that I could play my PSP online. As such I bought this one:
which came with this USB adapter:

I think the overall cost was around £60.

I got it home and set it up easily. However, I noticed that when I was playing my PSP, the connection would randomly drop even when it was over 90% signal strength.

I thought this may have been a fault with my PSP so I used the adapter in my laptop and it did the same.

I am using Windows XP (not sure what service pack as I am at work at the moment but it may be SP2) and I have not upgraded any firmware or drivers etc on it.

Anyone had a similar experience or devised a way of fixing this?

Hello everyone,

I just bought my parents a Netgear WGR614v10 wireless router for Christmas. I'm trying to set up a wireless network and make a wired connection from the router to their Dell Dimension 2400 desktop running Windows XP SP3. Internet access is provided by NetZero using a 2Wire DSL modem. Without the router connected, the wired Internet connection with the Dell desktop works fine.

I went through the procedure correctly to set up the wireless router but there is no Internet access. So I plugged the router directly to the desktop NIC and tried a "ping" command to I received four "Destination host unreachable" responses.

An "ipconfig /all" shows (with direct Ethernet connection between NIC and router port 1):

I have a netgear WGT624 v3 Wireless G router. I run linux, and recently I started noticing that anytime I tried to download a large file (like a deb file which is similar to a setup.exe in some ways) would be corrupted. Running md5sum would confirm that each download attempt would be corrupted differently every time.

I ruled out the laptop by bypassing the router and going strait to the cable modem and with that connection I had zero errors. Otherwise, connecting to the router wirelessly causes problems (and this has been confirmed via a laptop, a PC and an iPhone which has also experienced download problems with installing apps).

The router is currently running the latest available firmware and it's been running this version for at least a year with no issues up until a couple days ago.

I've attempted to reset the router to it's factory defaults and work my way back up to a wireless WPA2 connection from scratch, but it didn't solve anything. Even disabling encryption entirely still produces the same problem. Some downloads just locks up for minutes before resuming and ultimately to no good end as the download is still corrupt.

So, does this sound like a hardware problem? Think it might be possible to fix it somehow? Perhaps blowing dust out of it maybe? Probably worth a shot but I've never heard of anyone doing that before.

Any other suggestions? Would it be worthwhile to attempt to reinstall the firmware? Or even revert to an older version to s... Read more

yes, the pin number should be written on the label on the router

otherwise connect to the router by a cable and then you would need to loginto the router configuration pages and goto the wireless section where you can read the pin code

Your modem is a modem/router combo and probably has the same LAN IP address as the other router. To access the WBR-2310 disconnect it from the modem/router and then connect a computer to one of its LAN ports.

Hi there,

I have a broadband connection with Virgin Media and I brought a Netgear Wireless G - Router WGR614 v9 which is connected up and works fine - or at least my vista desktop and iphone connects to it ok.

I have since brought a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook and I just can not connect wireless internet to the netbook. The netbook instead keeps connecting me to a BTOpenzone /BTFONE connection which one of the neighbours must have as its not mine, although even the BTOpenzone comes up low signal and even that doesn't give me an internet connection.

Also I tried login into my router login page so I can add a device using the MAC address like I had to do for my iPhone but I keep getting an error message MAC address invalid although i dont know if this is even required.

I have gone into the dell wireless wlan card utility thing and tried to remove the btopenzone signal but it keeps reattaching itself, i have also tried adding my netgear.

That comes up with connection status - authenticating and at the bottom client ipv6 address not availiable (dont know it that should read that)

I am going out of my mind now, been trying stuff for days - i dont know what else to do

Please help, many many thanks

So here is my case:


Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

If anyone can help me with this that would be great.

I'm basically trying to push the wireless signal from my Verizon router in my basement, up to my wireless Netgear router which is recieving the signal on the main level so that I can plug my wired (non wireless) laptop into the ethernet port which is receiving wireless signal from the Verizon router in the basement in order to gain access to the internet.

The easiest way is to run the CD that should have come with the Router, if you havent got it then you will have to configure it manually.

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode. Even if I cut the WRT160N out of the loop and connect the computer direct to the DM111PSP. No internet,... Read more

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

After a series of computer and network failures, mostly due to electrical storms and electrical contractors, I decided to upgrade my old Netgear router to a new Netgear Wireless-N router.

I have used Network Magic to manage my networked computers and when I decided to upgrade NM, the new version didn't support my old router. So, it seemed like an all over upgrade/update was in order.

What should have been a simple process-- turn everything off, disconnect the old router, replace it with the new router, and go through the set up process (cable modem on, then router on, etc.) has turned into a mystery.

I used the Netgear startup wizard, followed step by step (more than once) and each time I got to the last part of the process, it stalled saying "No Router Found."
It was only after several unsuccessful attempts, that I decided to open my control panel and check things out. Network Connections showed my status as "connected," so I opened my browser and found that I am able to connect to the internet.

What I have not been able to do is to set up my network, network security, etc. I tried to initiate Network Magic for set up, with the same results-- "no router found."

Anyone know what I have going on here? Am I only connected through the LAN connection, perhaps?

I have a Netgear CGD24G Wireless Gateway and a Gateway MA8 laptop with after-market Windows 7 (Vista got a virus, went ahead and upgraded.)

Now, when I download 100 MB files on my Xbox 360 (Which is wired to the modem) it will be downloaded in a couple minutes, or less. The other computers in my house (There are plenty, and even more that come and go.) get a blazing internet connection, and most of them are wireless. Now this computer, which had an extremely quick connection as well all of a sudden dropped off, while the rest of the computers remain fast.

I've gone to before and after this occurred and my speed before was around 12 mb/s, and one time around 4 AM was even upward of 25 mb/s, all of these tests were performed multiple times on different server locations.

I JUST did the speedtest, and it came back with .4 mb/s, and the UL speed was 2.0. I honestly can't remember what I averaged with it prior to the problem, but it was definitely higher as well.

I have a new wireless ip camera that works great and I can view it from any computer in my home after entering user name and password.
However, when trying to access from outside my home the ip address with the port number at the end doesn't even ask for a user name and password. It just comes up with a can't connect error.
I have a Netgear router and can get inside to see connected devices and I'm guessing somewhere in here I need to give a permission to view this camera outside my home network.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nearby using your Wi-Fi, or over the internet? If the latter you have to use your public IP address and have to set your router to forward the needed port(s) to the camera.

Using a Webstar Cable Modem, & Netgear Wireless Router on Windows XP.

Connecting an Ethernet cable to the router worked ok, had access to the Internet with no problems.

Trying to run wireless was the problem. No wireless networks found.

The Tick light was off on the router, i power cycled the equipment, i reset the router, i applied the wireless settings manually, but still no wireless networks were found. It is a laptop so i checked to see if it had a wireless switch, which it did and is turned on, but still no networks could be found & this "Tick" light was still off. The router didn't seem to be able to broadcast a signal?

Is the Tick light important, i'm not to familiar with the Netgears light sequence, must this be on for a signal to be broadcast, or does it come on when there is an active wireless connection?

Any other ideas of how i would get this online?

Thank you,

Hi guys,

I bought a brand-new Netgear wireless modem router recently. I encountered some problems when I used it.

1. When I plug in the power of modem router, I notice the light of wireless is off. I think it should be light. Is it something wrong with the router?

2. My laptop obtains the IP & DSN automatically (which means DHCP), but I can't log in which is default address. OK, after that, I change my laptop ip address to static ip address, say, then I can log in

Dose anybody know the problems? Any help would welcome.

A list will appear with V1 or 2 or 3

then on documentation tab - you will see the user manual

I recently had to reset my wireless router (NetGear WNR2000v4), and when everything came back up it had no wireless connectivity. The light on the router goes on, but i can't even see the network as in range on my phone. The router login page has a toggle for wireless radio on/off, it's set to off but when i check it back on and apply it reverts back to off, and the LED on the router also turns off.

I've also got notifications of a firmware upgrade available, but when i try to download/apply it i get a "firmware incorrect" error.

After going through all the usual steps (shutdown of computer, phone, power cycle and factory restore on the router), i found a boatload of threads out there from folks having the exact same symptoms, and eventually a supposed fix for the issue here:

After downloading the fix tool and following the instructions, nothing seemed to happen. Where the fix says there should be files transferred in tfptd32, there was nothing there, and nothing changed about the way it's all acting. So now i guess i'm in need of a fix for the fix? I'm not altogether certain what this utility is or does to know how i might be able to make it work if it doesn't want to.

At this point i'm not sure if it's just broken and i need a new one, or if there's anything i can do to fix the fix, or if there's another solution out there. Any ideas?

I have had this router for some time - worked fine with Xp64 - now I've upgraded to Vista 64 Home, it will occasionally lock up.

By that I mean that I can sometimes still see my local network, but I lose internect connectivity. I seems to be at random. But the impression I get is that it is something on the wireless network that is causing it as it seems to be worse if I connect my works laptop to the internet via a wireless VPN connection.

I also have a WB NAS drive connected (Soon to be ditched due to problems with it corrupting files and being extremely slow to extract data) and a Wii (Wireless).

Or can any recommend a ADSL wireless router that works well with Vista? (I have to run the PC and NAS drive with static IP addresses due to the time it takes for the network to connect if I use DHCP)

I've got a netgear router which was enabling me to use my laptop on the internet perfectly - no problems. I had noticed that my wireless network connection was listed as non secured and this was a problem I was going to rectify. However having managed to log on to the internet and get a wireless connection fine this morning, and hour later I have returned to find that it is now listing my wireless connection as secured and asking for a network key for us to gain access.

I have never inputted a network key and therefore don't have the foggiest what to put in.

I'm thinking maybe someone has managed to use our wireless connection from outside of our home, then changed the network key? Is this possible? What can I do?

Any help gratefuly recevied.

Hello. I just bought a used Netgear wireless router. The product code is MR814v1. I plugged the power into it then an ethernet cable from the cable modem to the router. The power button is on and the internet light stays on for 5 seconds then blinks and turns off then the wireless light comes on. I am not sure what is wrong with it. I have tried different combinations of plugging in the wires but to no avail. I really need to get this working for my girlfriend. First I was at my house using it and the internet worked for about 10 minutes then just stopped. I have no clue what the deal is. I need some help.


A:Netgear Wireless Router Not Working

First step, reset the router to factory defaults. With power on the router, hold the reset button down for 15 seconds or more. See how it acts after that.

Of course, buying used equipment is sometimes a crapshoot, you may have simply purchased a defective router.

Hello everyone, I registered just to ask this question. Now, maybe I'm stupid, but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is with my new Router. The router itself is a NetGear WNR1000. My router is hooked up to both my Modem and my computer, as well as a chord to my Xbox that I rarely use. I use its Wireless abilities for my wife's laptop. Now, I put in the CD and went through all that set-up and such and it seemed to be okay, but my internet has been bad ever since I hooked this thing up.

My Ethernet and Internet lights on the Modem are near-constantly blinking, but the other two are fine. Sometimes my internet works okay, if very slowly, but sometimes a page won't show up and says "Webpage not Available" but if I refresh a couple of times it always comes up eventually. The laptop has this same type of half-internet. When I play WoW sometimes it lags horribly and sometimes it works perfectly fine. This has been going on for a few weeks since I put the thing in and I'm tired of it, so I came to you guys to see if y'all could figure it out.

When I go to CMD and type IPCONFIG/ALL it claims my IP Address is but What Is My Ip the website claims its actually something else.

A:Linksys Router and Netgear Wireless NIC

first, make sure that you have a valid IP, an invalid IP would be 169.254.x.x. secondly, right click on the connection icon and "view available wireless networks" make sure you are connecting to your router. XP will sometimes automatically make a connection to the first unsecured wireless network it finds, make sure you are connecting to the right SSID. Next, do you have WEP enabled, if so, do you have the key set up on your computer.

I have a user who installed a NetGear USB wireless adapter in a WinME desktop system to connect to a DLINK Wireless router.

The adapter is showing signal strength of 68% so I'm assuming it sees the router.

However, there is no connectivity to the net or to the other computers in the network. There is a WinXP desktop system cable connected to the router as well as 2 laptops which are both wireless connected.

I have ensured that WEP is disabled on the ME desktop as well as the firewall software. The adapter config gives two options for network connections, default and first available. I have tried both with no luck.

I've been told to make sure SSID Broadcast is enabled in the router.

i am trying to setup a netgear wgt624 v2 wireless router to a cable modem to allow wireless internet connectivity. Simple enough until you factor vista into the mix it seems.
i know the ssid is broadcasting cos i can see and select the network from my xp laptop (and iphone) but on the vista laptop the ssid does not show up in the detectable list. if you go into connect to network/show networks.
however if you go into network and sharing cetre/wireless networks there it is at the top of the list !
I have restarted everything in the correct sequence and also updated the drivers online for the wireless device in the hp laptop. any ideas what to try next, as the device is not only visible and selectable but working in all other respects on other machines?
i confirm that the wlan is on in the vista laptop and it works on other wireless networks.

Hi, this is my first post, but I have looked through the similar threads and they didn't really answer my question. In a nutshell:

1) Puchased and installed a new Netgear modem. Works beautifully with all computers in house, running everything from Windows 7 to XP.

2). HP J6400 printer rarely had problems with previous router (Belkin), but I went through all the steps on the printer console to assign it to the new router (which it recoginized and gave me a thumbs up on the change). So, the printer said the change to the new router was successful.

3) None of the computers in the house could print to the printer anymore.

4) I got the installation disk and attempted to update the network on one of the laptops. No go. I deleted the printer and the program and reinstalled. No go.

5) When reinstalling, the install program finds my router, and I enter the new SSID and key, but then it says it cannot find my printer (into which I entered the same SSID and key). I have tried going through the process with USB attached to the printer (which is part of the regular install program) but it does not help.

6) In a similar thread, guy said he gotten rid of everything on his computer having to do with the printer and reinstalled and that solved it. What I would like to know is if this entails merely deleted folders that might remain after an uninstall, or actually getting into the registry? I spent HOURS on this yesterday and am at the end of my rope. In the past, if a computer sto... Read more

A:New Netgear Router, HP Wireless Printer Fails

to uninstal the printer driver
On windows 7 - you should just be able to delete the printer

on XP
remove printer drivers
Open Printers and Faxes.
On the File menu, click Server Properties, and then click the Drivers tab.
In the Installed printer drivers list, click the driver you want to remove, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm.

To open Printers and Faxes, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.

if you try and add a network printer - what happens - does it see the printer on the network
if you log into the router - can you see the printer assigned and IP address in the DHCP table ?

I bought this on eBay last year and never got it running. It was new but had no serial number, as it was part of some OEM situation (can't remember the details). I tried to get support from Netgear, but they refused because of the lack of a serial number. The Seller on eBay said that rather than following the instructions I got from eBay via email support (which they do provide even us serial-less peopl), which I never got to work for some reason) that I should create a network bridge first.

Are there step-by-step instructions for accomplishing this somewhere?

I am literally about to pull my hair out... I currently have a cable modem and a netgear wireless router N600, and about a month and a half ago I suddenly lost all signals. I have been on the phone with my cable co as well as Netgear, and they are both telling me that their equipment is fine. In the meantime I have purchased 2 additional routers thinking it was a router problem, neither of them worked as well. I also hooked both up to a completely different computer and still getting the same results. It seems to me that the modem and router are not "talking" to each other. I can get on the internet fine with just the modem, but it doesn't connect at all after I connect the router to the modem (I am able to get a wifi signal from the router on my phone, but no connection) If anyone can please help me ive explored every option I know to think of. Thanks! Brandi

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted

Having issues with my NETGEAR WNR834B wireless router. I initially lost my modem ( - had to replace. After replacing and going through a few "support" personnel, they determined that something was wrong with my router.

At the time, the router power light was not ON at all. Disconnected completely and messed with the "reset" button on the back a few times: power on, reset button, power-off, reset button...blah, blah (many times).

Finally the power light is ON and green - can only assume that the reset process worked.

Now, I can seem to access the router to begin to reset everything from scratch - I've seen this same question in this forum as far back as 2007.

According to the instructions and all that I've found her and other places, I don't need an internet connection to connect to the router....well tried and tried, used different cables for input and output...but not luck.

The Power light is Green, the LAN light (cable from router to CPU) is Green, but wireless light is NOT ON.

Bought this router a couple of years ago from a disc or paperwork - got NetGear manual from website (used this for the initial connection...2 yrs ago).

Appreciate any tips or "next steps" ...all are welcome.

Greetings, My Laptop will not connect to my Netgear Router anymore today. It was working earlier (that's what mum said), and then it wouldn't connect anymore. All I get is the 6 bars that is grey with a yellow sun over it and under the Network Connections it say's its "Attempting to authenticate". I don't know what happen however last night the power went out for a couple of seconds so I don't know if that played a part or not but you can't rule out anything yet. Oh and I did a hard reset on the router and modem. I even went as far as to try advice I found on google but nothing worked. I tried deleting/uninstalling the wireless card under device manager and waited for it to restart but that didn't work. I even tried a system restore and that too didn't work. I also did the whole ipconfig /release, /renew, /flushdns and nothing worked. Before some people ask this question I will answer it: I did connect ethernet cable and it did work just fine. So I'm thinking its more of the wireless card that is messing up or something like that because I can connect using the Ethernet port. I am at a lost of what I can do now. Thanks for the help to all those who reply.

A:Wireless connection not connecting to Router (Netgear)

I did another test in which I used a USB Wireless adapter (54Mbps), and It didn't want to connect. So I'm now pretty sure its a Router problem but I don't see how that could be because I did a hard reset and I did backup recovery before I did a reset so I can restore it.

I have a Wireless Router (Netgear WGR614 V7) and I am facing problems with it while connecting to the Cable Modem.

My Setup: I have Broadband Internet from Cox Communications. I use a Motorola SB5120 Cable Modem. I then connect my Netgear Router to the Modem to get wireless internet.

Problem: When I connect the Netgear Router to the Modem, the router works for 6-8 hours without any interruption. But thereafter it starts dropping the Internet signal very frequently (every 3-5 minutes). The wireless connection is dropped as well as if there are any wired connections using the router. If I power off the router for 2-3 hours it is ready to work for another 6-8 hours. If I go through the normal power cycle suggested for routers (power off the modem, power off the router, wait for 30 seconds, power on the modem, when all the 4 LEDs on modem are Green power on the router) the router drops signal every 3-5 minutes.

I have tried hardwiring (using an ethernet cable) my laptop directly to the cable Modem and I get very good quality internet signal (Approx 15000 KBps Download and 500 KPBS Upload Speed). I don't experience any drops in the internet signal. So the problem should not be related to my cable company or the cable modem.

Looking for any help if I can get on what can be done with my router!

All connections are as they should be but my PC cannot find the Netgear Router.

I have tried numerous reboots and have even spoken to Virgin Tech Support!!!! who said it might be the port settings.

Hi. Need a lot of help here please......
Let me quickly describe the situation.

I have an ADSL broadband router.
I have recently purchased a NETGEAR WGT 624 wirless router so that I can connect laptops to our network.

Following advice posted on this site previously, I have use lan cable to connect the ADSL router to the netgear. I somehow managed to turn off the DHCP server and have set a static address. I have no idea how i did this or what the static address is, as I fiddled a lot and somehow got it to work.

As I sit here my laptop is able to connect to the wireless network and pick up the network called NETGEAR. It is only a local connection however and does not pickup the internet.
If I plug in a lan cable from the NETGEAR to the laptop, I then have internet connectivety.

The main problem is I have no idea how to configure the netgear router. The manual says:

To log into your router after you have configured your router, do the following:
1. Type in the address field of Internet Explorer or Netscape®
When prompted, enter admin for the router user name and password for the router password,
both in lower case letters (or enter the password you chose if you changed it during the setup
in “Initial Configuration” on page 3-2).
Note: The router user name and password are not the same as any user name or password you
may use to log in to your Internet connection.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop (WinXP) with B/G wireless integrated card connecting to a 8011/B Netgear DG824M AP/Firewall/Router acting as a DHCP (or is it DCHP?). I have connected to the router and other desktops/laptops on my wireless home network in the past.

But - the connection intially shows up as "Excellent" but then is lost and I am unable to reconnect. I have researched this problem on the net and have changed battery power saving setting, installed the latest Intel drivers, removed MS XP SP1 WAP patches that may have caused a problem and released & renewed the IP address many times but to no avail.

My Intel ProSET software says that the wired connection has an IP address of the 'correct' (even though it is unplugged) but the wireless card has (cannot renew its IP address). Have these adapters gotten confused or are there some other things I can try to sustain a connection?

many thanks in advance.

I have a NetGear FWG114P Router with a desktop PC, an IOMEGA backup drive, and printer all pugged directly into the router. I also have a Dell laptop with XP SP2 and a NetGear wireless G card. The router drops the connection to the laptop very frequently. The connection to the desktop and the printer have no issues and the connection going from the laptop to the router is fine. The only way to restore the connection is to re-boot the laptop or the router. I have tried everything to eliminate the problem as it has lasted for several years. Upgrading the firmware on the router, buying a new 5.8Ghz phone, and installing a more powerful antenna to boost the signal, have not made a difference. The signal strength is consistantly strong, so I know that is not the issue. Recently I tried something that did work but I do not understand why. I keep a browser session open to maintain a connection from the laptop to the Router - specifically when I boot up the laptop I login to the router and keep it logged in the entire time I am on the laptop. That way my connection to the router does not drop. I would much rather find the real cause of this problem. Any ideas?

A:NETGEAR Router drops wireless connection

It seems that no one ever responded to your post. However, I can vouch for exactly your experience. I bought my FWG114P after my previous FM114P failed suddenly after about 3 years. I wasn't happy about it failing but it was reliable as long as it ran. But the FWG114P is anything but reliable. I'm on my first replacement now and it drops the wireless signal randomly and for random periods of time just like the first one did (it does seem to come back of its own accord most of the time, without a computer or router reboot). I have given up trying to get Netgear to admit that there is some fundamental problem with the wireless function of this device, basically because I don't want to hear them tell me one more time that it must be interference (obviously interference that just happened to start when I bought the first FWG114P!). Even pointing them to various forums where people are complaining about exactly this problem doesn't seem to make any difference! I haven't bothered getting a third machine because I know it will have the same problem. Yes, it's disappointing and frustrating.

I have a Netgear wgr614v6 router. Currently, I am using an AirportExpress for my macbook, printer and inspiron 1545. I want to switch to the Netgear because it has more ports and it is compatible with my Netgear gaming adapter.

So I go through the setup process (I am setting it up on the MacBook) and it works fine while connected via ethernet cable to the mac. However, when using it wireless, it shows up in the network preferences area with a green light that says connected, but web pages do not load. It looks like they are going to, but it just says loading forever. I have the WPA security enabled and the device access list disabled. I am very new to networking and even fairly new to macs. I still cannot figure out the problem here. Any help would be much appreciated.
