How do I turn OFF Wifi Netgear 150N model WNR1000v.-whatever

Q: How do I turn OFF Wifi Netgear 150N model WNR1000v.-whatever

this is nuts.... how to merely disable wifi, period.
turn OFFF the wifi radio on shiny new Netgear WNR1000.... I have the "easy setup manual" and find no reference to the task
There is a setting to turn off SSID broadcast, but if the "WIFI On" lamp/LED on the unit is reliable indicator of the radio's carrier band, it is still "on"

A: How do I turn OFF Wifi Netgear 150N model WNR1000v.-whatever

there should be a wireless on/off button somewhere on the router. I dont have this model so i dont know exactly where it is on yours. But go here and you should be able to find out how to do it: Netgear

Yikes! I have 12 documents to print immediately and I can't see what I'm doing wrong.

I have a MacBook Pro laptop.

My printer is a Samsung 620ND Laser Printer.

Can someone walk me through this before my meltdown has a meltdown. The documents I have to print are to receive a job offer and I can't get the damn things printed!

Thanks,

Hi All,

I recently put in a Netgear firewall, configured it, its running no problem. Then I setup a new Netgear N600 wireless router, configured it, gave it a static IP, connected to it, works like a charm. Thing is, when I try to access the web gui I receive nothing.. Is the Netgear firewall taking priority or something? I went directly connected to the netgear wifi router and double checked to make sure that there was no settings restricting administration from wifi users, etc.. Anyone have a similar setup ?

Thanks All
 

A:Netgear FVS318G FW & Netgear N600 wifi router Can't access webgui

You sure been busy! Have "seen" you all over this place.

Is the FVS318G router connected to the N600 router's WAN port or a LAN port?

If WAN have you changed one of the routers so that they don't both use the same LAN subnet (I didn't check each one, but they probably both default to the same).

If LAN have you disabled the N600's Dhcp server?

Hi,

I bought this router because of favorable comments here and because of its VPN capability. But first I want to setup remote management and that's giving me a headache.

I just updated the firmware and it says the level is V1.0.7.2_1.1.93.

In the Remote Management setup dialog (via routerlogin.net) I clicked the box to turn on remote management. I told it to allow any ol' IP address. And I gave it a port number which I don't think is blocked by my ISP (let's say 12345).

The router is installed at NewHouse and I determine the IP address by asking my browser " what is my IP address?"

If I direct my browser to NewHouseIpAddress:12345 I get an immediate error message "This site can't be reached."

Thinking I might have chosen a port blocked by my ISP I also tried NewHouseIpAddress:80 (a port which my IP claims to block) and ... I got into the router's login dialog!!!

I don't expect anyone here can explain why my ISP is not blocking port 80 which they claim to block. But I hope someone can explain why my specified port for remote management does not work.

I will appreciate any help/ideas/sympathy/pointers.

Thanks, Bob

Hey guys.

I know this is a little specific but maybe someone has had similar problems with another card/driver. I built a new machine and was running Linux for awhile. Didn't like it, downloaded the windows 8 release preview. I formatted my hard drive and installed windows 8. When it booted up the first time I could see wireless networks but could not connect to them. I figured that was typical for a wireless card with no drivers installed. When I installed the drivers from the CD and restarted the computer, the wireless card was no longer visible. No wireless networks show up. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and the wireless card is still not visible. Anybody have any clues?

Any advice is appreciated.

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

I am new to using a computer to edit/enhance photos, etc. I live in Asheville, NC, and I am trying to document a historic area of the city (known as the "River Arts District") before it gets developed/renovated. I have gotten literally hundreds of photos from the local archives, and I know that I easily have enough of them to create 3D composite representations of all of the buildings-I can literally see the layout of the area in my head. And about 25% of the buildings are still standing, so I have plenty of reference points to keep the scale and perspective in check. But I am not experienced enough with this kind of thing to know what software/app would best be suited to my specific needs. I am a fast learner, but I need help crossing the threshold from the concrete world to the virtual so I can share the map in my head with my community. I would prefer something free, since I am on a tight budget (I am doing this project with my own funds and time), but I can pay for the software if it's not too expensive. Thanks in advance for the help and/or suggestions.

Try the factory reset. There's a a small reset button in the back, press it down (sometimes you have to use a pen if it's one of those pin hole things) for about 5 seconds and that takes it back to factory settings. At that point you can either run the install CD that came with the router, or set it up manually from your browser.

Working on installing a netgear universal WiFi range extender model # WN1000RP. We had it working before but now have a new wifi router. I was able to fine the user manual on-line. I did a factory reset and then used the WPS button to connect the extender to the router. The lights in the extender indicated that the connection had been successful, but the network options showed Netgear_EXT rather then CentryLink_EXT like it was supposed to. The manual offers a second option of selecting the Netgear_EXT network and then going to mywifiext.net for a set-up wizard. The set-up wizard starts then I am prompted with a popup box stating "authentication Required" with spaces for a User name and password. I tried a couple of things but nothing worked. I know my wifi password.

Hi, apologies if this has been answered elsewhere; I've tried searching but couldn't find a definitive answer...

Basically, I'm just wondering about compatibility issues with the 64 bit version of Vista. I'd previously tried XP64 after I upgraded my system to an Athlon64 processor, but had to go back to XP SP2 when I discovered that I couldn't use the wifi PCI card in my machine because it's made by Netgear, who've resolutely refused to release any 64 bit drivers for any of their products.

So my question is simple; does Vista x64 provide 64 bit generic driver software for hardware which was previously unsupported?

Thanks in advance

A:No WiFi connection between Sony Bravia TV and Netgear

I have moved to a thread of your own

Is this a TV that will not connect ? - as thats the post that you replied on
If so whats the make and model
if not - please provide full details of what equipment you have and what is not working

That ipconfig /all is showing a default gateway IP address of 0.0.0.0

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
Firewall / security suite
DHCP Service not running.
Duplicate IP address on the network.
Bad NIC card drivers.
Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.

Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.

Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.

uninstall the adapter and restart PC - windows will re-install the drivers

Okay, I have a PC in my bedroom which is at the end of my house, and the actual internet source (Thomson/BigPond) is at the other end. Between the internet source and the computer, there are several televisions, lights, speakers, etc that may be causing interference. It could also the the channels in which my items are in.
My PC doesn't have an actual wireless connection thing built in, and that's why I have this netgear router thing.
My PC is a HP pavilion.

The connection at which it receives is awfully frustrating. It's agonizingly slow, taking several minutes to load a page - that's if it actually decides to load up.

There is another netgear router a few rooms closer than my PC is that recieves internet properly.

Is there anything I could do to fix my connection speed/connection in general? Or just improve it at all?
Any help is appreciated!

I recently switched internet service providers from AT&T to Time Warner and ever since I have been unable to connect to my Netgear router with my computer's wifi. However, I have successfully connected my TV wirelessly to said router. One other note, my computer's wifi seems to recognize that the netgear router is there but it just refuses to connect me to the internet. Please help me rectify the issue, much appreciated!

Hello group. Hoping you all can help because I am at my wits end and nearly beyond frustration.

I saw basically an identical thread to my issue but was never really answered and was closed.

I recently purchased a Netgear N600. All wireless devices connect and work wonderfully. But all of my computers would not communicate with my HP4795 with WiFi. Thinking maybe the network card or whatever may have been fried... And wanting one of the new HP ePrint printers I bought an OfficeJet 6600 today. It connects great to the Wireless network and the ePrint works decent.

But NONE of my computers will communicate with the printer. It was assigned an IP from the router. Trying to add printer through Windows 7, it cannot find printer. Try to add printer using the IP address and cannot find printer. I ping the IP and nothing.

I searched through all the Netgear settings and couldn't see anything that seems like it would affect this.

(pre post edit: Well... rather than deleting this post before I even submitted... While typing this post I was was going through the settings on the Netgear N600 and saw there is a checkbox under "Wireless Setup" called "Enable Wireless Isolation". Soon as I unchecked that, the computers (2 so far) saw the new printer. The wife is angry that I blew $120 on a new printer but at least we have ePrint now)

Mods please delete this if you think a self-answered post is redundant.

A:Problems with netgear wifi laptop card

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

I have owned the sony tv for about 5 months now. It does automatic updates. Until recently I have been able to be connected to my wireless netgear router. A few days ago it has decided not to connect to the router. I have manually put in the SSID any other info it asked for but I'm far from a computer tech and don't honestly know what it wants from me. Does any one have any information on this issue with Sony TV. When I went online to search out information I found that the forums that had questions were quite old. If anyone has a simple step by step fix for this issue, please let me know. I miss my Netflix!!

I have a netgear wifi adapter, 3100v2 and I'm getting an error message when trying to connect to wifi, saying it can't be established.

As far as I know I have the latest drivers for the wifi adapter and also downloaded netgear wifi genie to see available wifi signals.

I am 100% putting in the correct password. Tried about 10x.

Any ideas on what I can do to get it to connect to wifi?

Hi everyone - going a little crazy as I finally received my new Samsung UE40ES6540 Smart tv (built in wifi) and cannot get it to connect to my NETGEAR DG834GT router. I was initially using WPA-PSK security with broadcast of my SSID and I've had no problems connecting my MacBook pro, iPad, iPhone and (old!) PC laptop. Even my HP printer works on the network.

I've tried taking security off (disabling it), adding in the MAC address of the TV to the setup access list (turning this on and off) with no luck. The TV finds the network with 4 bars no problem. I input the security password (I've done this about 10 times so I don't believe it is the password that is incorrect - and I am using caps when required). Ive even typed the details in manually (ie IP, DNS etc). I'm running out of options. I know that the router is pretty old - it is running the following:

Okay, it's now 13 Sep 2015 and I went around in circles to figure this out. I saw the same issues, to the point of knowing the driver was installed bu tthe Netgear tools never enable the WNDA3100v2, and one cannot manually enable it either.Also tried a USB A6200 device, with the same results.However, I did make this work, and it's kind of simple in my case. I was running the free Zone Labs Firewall & A/V package. And who's A/V package do they use you ask? Kaspersky! Kaspersky has a known issue with allowing proper installation of Netgear USB wireless adapters. So I followed the recommended guidense of a full uninstall of any Netgear WNDA3100v2 and A6200 drivers and software. Then a full uninstall of Zone Labs tools, reboot the computer, then reinstalled the WNDA3100v2 software. Followed the directions, recognition of the USB WiFi adapter was instant. Changed the device setting for being Enabled to auto connect if wired adapter is not connected, and here we are fully functional.Of course now I need to reinstall Zone Labs software, which according to the write up I read at Zome Labs, it should all just work now.Try this method if nothing else seems to work.

I have two computers(with problems over 15 that work fine) an All in one Sony that has a qualcom 9285 and a new l521x dell laptop with a dell 1901 (also atheros).

I have these issues with the sony for a few years - and just wrote it off as a computer problem - we have had the sony tech come out and replace the entire motherboard, wifi module and he couldn't figure out what the problem was.

what made me link the issue with Atheros and the router was that my new laptop is behaving the same way as the sony. They both show connected to interenet (windows 7 64 bit(sony) and windows 8(dell)) I get an IP address, and I can ping websites.

If I click to watch the network traffic (on the local connection status activity) I can see 50,000 bytes received every second

I have updated the sonys and dells drivers to the latest one both from sony/dells site and from atheros download site as well - but it doesn't seem to make any difference

any suggestions as to what to do to get this to work? is the problem with the atheros drivers or with the router?

Hi all,

Today I installed the latest netgear drivers for this wireless adapter of mine to hopefully improve my wifi signal on my PC, as it has been a bit slow recently and I thought the drivers were outdated or something. However since doing this my WiFi has now decided to disconect all the time meaning I am not really able to use the internet anymore. It just disconects me and I have to just re-conect again all the time. I have no removed those drivers and the problem still persists. Can anyone help?

Internet service provider is Virgin Media, also using a netgear router. I have AVG 2014 free on my PC. If anymore info is required I will add it

I have Windows 7 Enterprise N, a desktop not a laptop. Cheers,

Henry

A:WiFi disconects all the time on my PC-using Netgear WN311B adapter

Have you checked Event Viewer for clues?

Don't know if this would help but I had a similar problem that was not easy to find the cause of. I had my router set up to a static IP for my PC, but because of a bug in my Netgear router it couldn't handle Mac addresses beginning with something else than 00. So the router always kept trying to reconnect my PC because it couldn't allocate the correct IP to it.
The solution was to disable obtain IP automatically on my PC, and set a static IP outside the DHCP interval from my router.

I have a home network with an XP 64, and Linux SUSE 11.1 64 bit, hard wired to a Netgear WGR614v7 router connected to Clearwire wireless modem. I've connected to the network with an old laptop with Cisco wifi card. I had minimum problems connecting with the early wifi.

I just bought a new laptop with Vista, soon to be Win 7 I hope. When I try and connect to the network with wifi, I get limited access. I'm running WEP, authentication - automatic, 128 bit, and have typed the same "passphrase" more than once on both the router and in Vista. I'm not familar with WEP, and Vista. The problem seems to be in Vista authenticating the passphrase. If I could clear the network setup in Vista that would be a good start.

Hello

I recently got the newest NETGEAR router device, the NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router, and I am unable to connect to the 5GHz WiFi it provides on its Tri-band WiFi. I am currently only on its 2.4GHz WIFI, which I assume is lesser than the 5G. I am able to connect to the 5GHz on my smart phone, so I know it exists from the router. I am running a windows 8.1 currently on a desktop on an HP Envy 700-213 Desktop PC.

Edit: My computer supports 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n radio types - which supports 5GHz WiFi
My adapter is a Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Any ideas for why I am unable to connect to this WiFi?

A:Unable to connect to 5GHz Wifi on NETGEAR Tri-Band Router

The most likely explanation is that the wifi adapter in your HP Envy 700-213 doesn't support the 5Ghz band.

If you really want to connect at 5Ghz you will need to get a new wifi adapter for your computer.

Hi all - you might notice this is my first post here, so patience is appreciated
So here's my story...I have cable internet through Cox, renting a Netgear CG3000D gateway from them. Starting about a month after installation the internet started freezing over wifi. I say freezing because it would just suddenly stop, and the only way to get it to start coming through again is to reset wifi from the device. This happens with every device we use...smartphones, tablets, laptops, wii, and lately it's been at least a dozen times a day. I've spent hours on the phone with Cox, had their techs out to the house three times now, and still no solution. I'll admit that I'm no expert when it comes to this stuff, but I really don't appreciate them charging me $50 a pop to come to my house and ask if I tried resetting the modem, suggesting I just unplug it for a minute, tell me it's working fine after they hold a signal on their phone for 10 seconds...one spent a couple hours knocking around outside before coming back in to say he ran all new cables, drilled holes through my house to move the modem to a better spot, and everything should be fine. It's not.
Anyway...after hours of research online I'm convinced the problem is somewhere in the modem's settings, or just a faulty modem. I've lost hope in getting any help from Cox, so am here hoping that someone with some real knowledge can help me. There are no issues with the wifi signal it... Read more

sadly it has broken my wifi adaptors the drivers and software no longer work correctly..

on the left side the device comes up as a lan card in the middle of the screen shot you will see it showing up top

But the Microsoft hosted network adaptor isnt enable or showing up correctly I need this to be able to make and start the hotspot/adhoc

it doesn't think its a wifi adaptor anymore

on the right side you can see there no sharing options etc on the wi fi properties basically useless

The laptop has a physical switch on the front which turns on/off the wifi.

If I turn the switch to on, an image appears on the screen saying its been turned on and vice versa if I switch it off.

However, Windows isn't showing it as being available in the system tray.

I can connect via ethernet and have tried using the Wifi to connect to two different networks and it looks like the card is the problem.

If you look at my previous posts, they have been about my laptop not connecting to the internet. Perhaps this is why?

Can they be fixed or replaced?

My wifi suddenly turned off, when I troubleshooted it said that wireless capability was turned off and when I went to turn it on, it was already enabled. I've tried a lot of things including updating just about everything but nothing seems to be working. Help.

I recently downgraded from windows 8 to windows 7 64 bit. I have managed to install most of the drivers but the wifi won't turn on. When i troubleshoot it says WIFI hasn't been turned on. The wifi button on the keyboard shows a solid white light and it won't turn on or off when i press it, it seems it is stuck. Universal Serial Bus (USB) controller is not yet installed and it shows up with yellow exclamation mark in the device manager. I have tried sp66089.exe sp64950.exe from HP website. I hvae attached a picture of the device manager screen.

Since I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, I haven't used my wifi, but now I find I can't turn it on. At the time of installation the f12 (wifi) key on my HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook was in the off position. Now it won't respond, and I can't turn wifi on any other way. The greyed-out box in the lower right hand corner won't respond (though the airplane mode will). When I'm in Settings: Network & Internet, the slider keeps going back to off. Can't turn it on under Network and Internet: Network Connections, and have already tried disabling and enabling the Wireless Network Connection. Under Manage Wi-Fi settings is some stuff about Wi-Fi Sense, which I'm not interested in -- hope this is not a ploy to make me use it!
Any ideas, aside from resetting the computer? Thanks!!!

A:Now that I've installed Windows 10, why can't I turn on my wifi?

I have the same problem. I assumed either my wifi had gone out(coincidence) or Windows 10 drivers... its also a HP Pavilion DV6 with amd chipset with Realtek wifi adapter. I have tried rolling back, updating drivers, uninstalling adapter reinstalling adapter...to no avail.

I've got wireless internet which I access on two laptops and an ipod touch.

Recently, on the ipod touch I have been able to browse for a while then the internet stops loading pages. It shows I am still connected but I have to turn off the WIFI and then turn it back on again and reconnect and everything is ok for a while.

Now it is starting to happen on one of the Windows XP Home laptops.

I browse for a while, then pages stop loading. I am still connected. If I turn the WIFI adapter on the laptop off then on again and reconnect I can surf for a while.

During the period I cannot surf on the laptop I can on the ipod so there is a live connection beyond the router.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I've already consulted Samsung about this issue, and they want me to Refresh (windows 8) my laptop. I have important programs and I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

Started about half an hour ago, I plugged my laptop into the wired connection because it was downloading 6 GB. Plugging in a cord activates Airplane mode. In theory, once out of Airplane Mode, WiFi will turn back on. NORMALLY IT DOES, BUT NOW IT DOESN'T. THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF.

PLEASE HELP ME. IT'S A BRAND NEW LAPTOP, NOT TO MENTION MY SECOND ONE OF IT.

A:WiFi turned off and won't turn back on.

Is this a second computer with the same issue?

I would suggest contacting Microsoft as it seems to be a software issue and not hardware. Especially if you can turn on the wireless manually.

Hi guys,I left for uni and my dad bought this really old laptop, which had already windows 7. The wifi was working fine before, but I really never needed to turn it on because it was already turned on.But here they asked me to install Linux on my laptop. So I wiped Windows away and I installed Linux Mint. I installed the driver for the wifi but now I can't get to turn wifi on again. It seems that he is turned off physically because the small led the button zis not lightned at all. I tried pressing fn+wifi button but nothing happens.Is there any way to turn it on from bios or something? Thank you

I have Win 7 Home Premium.

Is there an easy way to disable my wireless connection so that (a) it does not enable itself after a reboot, and (b) I don't need to implement the complete process to re-enable the wireless?

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)

At the moment, I simply switch off the router until the database restore is complete.

A:How to turn off WiFi so that it does not re-enable after reboot?

Just don`t let it connect.

Doesn`t the laptop have an on off switch for wireless ? Most laptops do.

My wife has a toshiba Satellite L645D-S4040 running Windows 7 64 bit. This morning she ran an update and has since lost wifi and Fn F8 does not work. Went to Toshiba site and downloaded and ran the TVAP. It got rid of the Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and we still can't get the wifi to enable. Unfortunately she does not remember which update it was that she performed. Help.

Update: My wife remembered that the only change she made was to install Secunia PSI from this sites download section.

A:WiFi turned off after update, and won't turn on again

Does FN+F8 key work after installing TVAP?

Did you try a system restore?

Hi,

I installed Win 7 32 bit on my Lenovo G510 laptop and then installed all the drivers. Now I want to use my wireless Internet but can't find the way I can turn on the wireless on that laptop!!
I tried Fn+F5 and also F5 but it's still turned off. It says, "Wireless capability is turned off".

"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in Power Management is unchecked.

How to turn on wireless in that laptop please?
