HOW TO RESET THE ROUTER


You can reset your Netgear router/wireless WGT624 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless WGT624 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

PURCHASED A SECOND LAPTOP TODAY AND THERE IS A SECURITY CODE(PASSWORD) REQUIRED TO ALLOW THIS COMPUTER ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE ...HOW DO RETREIVE THIS OR SET UP NEW ..I HAVE A 108 MBPS WIRESLESS FIREWALL ROUTER WGT624 v3


it sounds like you are trying to access a computer from another computer.

you need to:

1. configure a home network so both computers can see each other:
vista
xp
7
2. now you need to share folders
vista
xp
7

now if by ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE you mean your network, you need to know what passcode or key code your router was set up with. if you didn't setup security for your password talk to the person that did and find out what the password is. if you can't reach this person you may need to reset your password to defaults which should automatically allow access to any computer your bring into your wireless network (not recommended without security) and then you should reconfigure security and make a note or remember the new password or keycode so you can configure the new and any other computer you want to allow to connect to your network.. this is how you can set to router back to defaults:

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 5 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

for more info on how to reconfigure your router and security for it here's your router's manual

good luck

my pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
I also suggest :-
Change the default password
Change the default SSID
For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

We have a sucessful wireless network to one lap top, however we do not know or remember our wpa to enable us to open our secure network to other select users.


If you don't have the password to log into the router's configuration using a wired PC, you'll need to reset the router using the little button located on the back or bottom of the router. This will reset it to the default factory settings and clear all configuration.
