Network Dropping Signal. Netgear WGT624v3 Router

I have used this router for awhile. I moved to a place with a 900 mhz pc running xp. I configured the connection with it and used the wifi to connect the laptop. Now I have a connection that sometimes can be found and other times not. I went back and redid it with the laptop and just began to have the same problem. I switched the mac fro default, pc and router each time and still get problem. Now when I can connect the laptop it gives me a gateway and shows the router. I can't figure this out to save my life.

I have a NetGear WNR834M that keeps dropping the signal. Connecting PC directly to the modem I have no problems maintaining signal.0


I too experience a similar issue with the wireless connection dropping. My wireless devices are within a 20-30 foot distance from the router and all of the devices loose conectivity so I know it's not just a specific device.

My WNR834M is running version 1.4.23NA. The logs file doesn't show anything except for one timestamp the last time it was reinitialized (a forced reboot).

The router's WiFi Channel is set for AUTO and is currectly using Channel 1 (found under Maintenance

I am using this adapter to connect to my WGT624v3 router. Both netgear. My computer is connected to my xbox360 and sharing its connection with the console. I can share the internet for xbox live, but when...


If you are using a wireless connection you could have a weak signal, move the router or the XBox to get a stronger signal.
You could be getting an interference with other wireless routers/access points in your area. Check the broadcast channels of the various routers/access points in your area and select a channel that is not being used for your wireless router.

Hi,lost laptop wireless connection to my netgear WGT624v3. It detects the router is there but says 'aquiring network address' laptop works ok if i plug it direct to the hub port... any ideas appreciated....


try setting the channel to 11, but it depends on your location, for the best connection try finding the right channel that suites your locations.

sometimes there are alot of devices that can interfere with the signal coming from the router.

for your reference try this link for wireless range.

Signal dropping out when useing netgear adapter


You may find that either the signal strenf=ght is not there or there are other devices near by on the same channel as the router.

Use THIS app to test the signal strength and check the channels is use also

You may want to either move the router to a higher postion (on a shelf) or get an external antenna for it to boost range. Be aware that cordless phones are a source of interferance so thias may affect signal strength, reception etc. Put some distance between such devices and the router/widfi card etc.

Can not get internet or local web thru my netgear router (wgt624v3)


Have you run the configuration CD that came with the router?
You may also have to make changes to your firewall configuration in order to connect to the Internet.
If you no longer have the install CD, use the network setup wizard included in WinXP.

Not able connect to VPN from my new Netgear WGT624v3


Uncheck the "disable SPI firewall" option in the wireless settings for the router.
