Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
All of a sudden my computer will not connect to the router. It sees the router as available and shows the signal as strong. However, it will not connect wireless. It does not matter if I disable or have the security enabled. This just started. I have shut everything down and rebooted, but no luck. If I connect using the cable through the router, it is fine. Any thoughts?
Hi fairway ......if your wireless router is set up as a dhcp it should give your computer and ip address and other information when it connects, to check this assuming you are running windows, click on the start go to run......type cmd
a black window will open up in that window type ipconfig /all (note:there is a space between the ipconfig and the /all) then click enter.
a list of the connections will show.....look for the wireless and see if the internet address starts with 192.168.x.x .......x being the network No so may be eg 192.168.2.5 or may be 10.0.x.x
if the ip is 169.x.x.x then you have no connection to your router at all.
so you will need to go to the connections in the control panel and on the wireless connection, right click and go to properties, then when the next one opens, choose tcp/ip the click ok button.
they should be set to obtain ip automatically and the same with the dns.
now if they weren't set to this change it so they are, then hit ok to all the boxes to close them.
then when your back in the connections right click the wireless and choose repair.
now the icon on the tasbar right click it, choose view available networks, and find your in the list then click connect.
you will be asked for your pass phrase and or sid, once you have completed this it should say aquiring network address and connect to you router.
if this is not the case let me know as we may need to change some setting on the router.
hope this helped
