20 Most Recent NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR) Questions & Answers

As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

It may be borked, especially if you've had a power surge or outage.
You may wish to call your internet service provider and request that they send a "Reset" signal to your Modem. It may even be offered through their automated menu before you reach a real person.
Failing that, try the following steps:
1. Unplug/power to ALL OF THE COMPONENTS - modem, router, and computer. Wait 20 seconds, then restore the power cord to the modem. Wait 1 minute until the modem fully boots and settles down. Next, restore the power cord to the router and wait at least 30 seconds for it to fully boot and settle down. Next, restore power to the computer and wait for it to fully boot up and settle down. Now, see if you have internet access. If not, go to Step 2.
2. Right-click on the network icon in the system tray and select "Troubleshoot problems". Wait while the Windows troubleshooter tries to identify and fix the problem. Now, see if you have internet. If not, go to Step 3.
3. Go to Control Panel/Device Manager. Under Network adapters, select the network adapter you're using and choose Uninstall. Click Yes/Apply/OK as appropriate. Restart the computer and wait while Windows re-installs the drivers for your adapter. Now, see if you have internet.
4. Try a different router.

You connect the Motorola cable modem to the router via the Internet port on the router.

See Manual http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wpn824_ref_manual.pdf

is it a pin or a wireless security key?

NetGear RangeMax... | Answered on Mar 22, 2013

The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.
