SOURCE: cnet CWR-854 does not work

You may be advised to use an RJ45 LAN cable to try the following, then use the wireless connection when all ais up and running. The default Login ID and Password is ?root? with password ?1234?. This Wireless Access Point?s default IP address is 192.168.1.253, You can reset this Wireless Access Point back to its default settings by clicking on Reset button, and then press OK button to confirm your decision. Note: you can also hold down the reset button on this Wireless Access Point?s panel for more than 10 seconds to reset its default settings back to factory default. If the reset doesnt work turn off router then on again first, but if the reset doesnt work, the router may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Netgear 824, security = intermittent WiFi connectivity

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

What is it used for?


Hello,
You can use this wireless router to connect different wireless devices together. Each device with a wireless network card (computer, phone, gaming system, printer, etc.) can connect to the router without a cable. This will form a network where information can be shared.
The main purpose people use this for is to connect their network to the internet. As long as the router is connected to your internet, every other wireless device can also connect.
Thanks,
Pat

How to use my Cnet CWR-854 Router as a wirerless antenna for pc.


You can't really use a router to connect to another router, you can sometimes use them as an "Extender" for range, but not as a WiFi card, they simply aren't made to operate that way.

Trying to access 192.168.1.254 for siemens se567, followed advice to go to run and cmd ping, don't understand other go to access point, my situation is the older couple I live with have wirless internet in...


The internet connection has a security that's why you can't access the internet. The only thing you have to do is to know the wpa password of the router.

This router has a default username and password to configure all the settings. This is the manual for Cnet CWR-854 Router:

http://www.cnetusa.com/eng/Manuals/Wireless/CWR-854/CWR-854%20ver%20F%20User%20Guide.pdf

It seems that the router is already configured by an authorized person, the best thing you should do is contact the authorized person that knows everything about the router.

I do not know how to lock my wi fi


I don't understand your term "lock". Do you want to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your system? Or, do you want to prevent someone from lifting it as in 'LOCK it to the radiator'?

Several things come to mind, you can turn off the "broadcast" feature, you can require a password for access, you can set your devide to allow only devices for which you have entered the MAC address. You can do any or all of these and maybe even more.

I recommend you get the free to evaluate version of Network Magic from Cisco. This is a teriffic network management program. I use the paid pro version and I love it.

get it at http://www.purenetworks.com/download/

In addition to security, NM helps you to share resources and to repair failed connections

I hope this helps

Accessing echolink nodes


Please go to the following website and check the port numbers that you have forwarded. Some wireless routers do have issues forwarding ports. http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scanner/ Also, before you use this tool, make sure ICMP is not blocked in the router's settings; if it is blocked all ports would show blocked. Try this and let me know the results. Cheers
