"acquiring network address" problem

I purchased this Netgear router for my parents and installed it to their desktop computer well over a year ago. Since then, I have logged on to the internet numerous times on my laptop without the need to enter their password more than that first time. Today, however, altho i accessed the web on THEIR computer, i was required to enter their password on my laptop (trying to remember that was a challenge in itself!) and cannot get beyond the ACQUIRING NETWORK ADDRESS message. I have made numerous attempts to get a connection by rebooting the modem, router, computer, etc. to no avail. PLEASE HELP??? This is soooooo infuriating!! Thx much!

The password might have been changed that's why you keep getting "acquiring network address", the password is incorrect. What you can do is just reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of it, press and hold it down for 10 seconds then release, unplug the power now for 10 seconds then plug it back in. That will disable the wireless password, just re-enable it.

Cannot find my printer in the network


Hard code an IP address on your internal network in the Brother MFP.
eg 192.168.x.x where x.x are values that your netgear routes.
Then search for that IP address when installing your networked printer.

According to the manual, you can purchase any wireless router (manual calls the router "air base")

I would advise a D-link or a Linksys router.

your computer is not getting IP address from the router. You said that you reset the router. Press the Reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. Unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. restart your computer and check if that connects. If that doesn't work then assign a static IP address in the range of your router. you will need to find out the default IP address of the router. you will find the default IP address of the router in the router manual or if you go to the web site of the manufacturer, you will get the IP address of that router. Now once you assign a static IP address to the computer it will show you connected , now try to set up your router.

Netgear Wireless Router 108 MBPS


It's not the same. Your Netgear router version is V1. I did not find any downloadable upgrades either - I have the same router. My connection problem turned out to be between my DSL modem (AT&T), router and PC. What I needed to do was, under "Basic Settings," click no where it asks if your service requires login, then at the bottom of the tab, click the option to acquire the MAC address directly from the wired (desktop) computer. ("this computer" on the tab) Once I had done that, the router enable the modem correctly and I could use the desktop and the wireless access for my laptop. Frustrating, because if you have AT&T as your service provider, Netgear's instructions tell you to do the exact opposite.

Laptop won't recognize the network, No installation CD, other solutions?


This sounds like you have either WEP or WPA enable on the network you are trying to connect too. Are you connecting through a wireless network? If not try adding a passphrase using WPA-TKIP and see if that helps.

Network parental control


If you want dynamic monitoring/filtering of the web traffic you might need to install software on all the PC's! When it comes to the Playstation 3, there should be settings on there that you can set! Check out this page : http://www.gamerdad.com/detail.cfm?itemID=3558 When it comes to the dynamic filtering of sites, the most highly rated Parental Control Software is Content Protect(Now NetNanny)! http://www.netnanny.com/ By dynamic filtering, it means the the parental control mechanism, automatically blocks sites due to content(it updates over the internet!) The router can only do so much! :( hope this was helpful, regards, babb
