Question about Gateway Wireless-G WGR-200 Router (7004809)

1 Answer

Slow internet connection between Gateway Router WGR 200 and MacBook Pro running Leopard

My old Mac laptop (Powerbook) connects to the internet and surfs the web with no problem. My new MacBook Pro running Leopard is much slower (sometimes timing out). Could it be incompatibility between the router and the new laptop? In Googling the problem, I found a suggestion to add the DNS numbers 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 to my Network preferences. Seemed to work for a day or so, but last night I was slow again. Any suggestions?

PC laptop will connect to the internet MacBook Pro Won't


Check your router's IP address from the Compaq machine. Get a command prompt and type ipconfig .all
Then wright down the IP settings.
Check the IP settings of the Macbook Pro. Adjust settings. You can give a Static IP also. If needed. But you have to set the default gateway -Enter previouse IP settings for those.
Check ur Wi-Fi settings also.

MacBook not connecting to DIR-655 Router


My solution was that I changed the wireless mode from "B,G and N" to just "B and G," and then it worked fine.

Macbook pro network connection


Verizon, the ones who sent me the router, helped me fix the problem. The router/modem software has to be updated because the old software can't work with the new version of leopard. The technical support guy did all of the updating via a screen share, so your best bet is to call the company who sent you the router and get their help.

Cannot connect


Assuming you are on Windows XP click on site below for router setup. http://support.gateway.com/s/NETWORK/7004809/7004809slWindowsXP.shtml The Nintendo 'Cloud' is just a network name so that when you are in a building that has supported wifi, you search for the network and use My Cloud as the password for connection on Nintendo DS. The settings you may require for the Nintendo Wii will probably be your routers IP address, Gateway and DNS address (just use same numbers). Apologies in advance if i'm incorrect as i have only setup a nintendo DS on my own wireless network and as Wii are not yet available i have no knowledge of it yet.
