To reset your wireless router or router you have to insert a pin on the hole "reset" located at the back of your unit during a couple of minutes.

Have a great day!

In my lap with windows 8 version netconnection i s not available,but with same wifi modem..NETGEAR N150 WIRELESS D S L Modem Router mobile is net.connected.

Netgear are products that are last to just about 90 days. I am a computer tech and do a lot of house and business calls to TS networks. Most problems come from Netgear, once they switch to another brand, the problem disappear. Even I had a wireless Netgear router, and had to return it because the life span was about 4 month and the complimentary support is only 90 days.
Just by rebooting the modem (turning it off and on) usually fix it for about 8 hours, then the cycle start again. After rebooting the modem/router, delete your saved network from Windows 8 and start fresh. That should work.

Keeps dropping signal to iPhone & computer


I am not able to locate a model 67, so I presume that is short name for it.

Can you look at the label on the bottom and get the full model name? Examples of Netgear model names are WRN2000.

As for the signal dropping, it is possible that the router needs a firmware update. I would suggest searching for a firmware download for the modal have.

Good luck!

When i turn on the power to my router, all of the lights turn on and freeze

Try to reboot your router...normally reboot are two types...

In Netgear router, when you change the router configuration, it does a "soft reboot", which is related to the operating system reboot.
And a "hard reboot" is usually done by removing power from the router and rebooting it after powering it off for several seconds.

->open your browser and login your router page using username and password..
->Click the Diagnostics option which is under the Maintenance on the left hand side of your Netgear setting page.
->Then click the Reboot button and it will automatically reboot your router.

***Reboot process can vary depending on different Netgear wireless router models.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings


  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

Where is the reset button?

The RESET button on Netgear wireless routers is on the back of the router, it is in a small hole.
Power up the router and press and hold the RESET button until the router reboots.
