Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

1 Answer

Best Buy says I "must" use their $250 wireless router when I buy a Verizon Air Card; true?

I'm ditching Wild Blue because northern NY does not see a whole lot of sunny skies. Plus, I hear that the Verizon service is much faster. So I'm investigating an Air Card at my local Best Buy. But when I asked if I can keep my current, brand new Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router, they said it won't work and I have to buy their proprietary air card wireless router. Somehow this just seems fishy, so I thought I'd write. Any insight? Thanks in advance!

    The only problem I have now is that I didn't take into account that the aircard is USB and my Rangemax doesn't have a USB port in the back. Now what?

You can still use your Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router if ever you avail there service, there's no problem with it of coarse they will say that it wont work so you can get all the networking device from them that's a plain marketing strategy , I can tell you any wireless router will be working for their service.....

Not sure what you're asking. If your laptop has a wireless card installed in it, then any wireless router should work. If you're asking what wireless router to buy, do a Google search on top 10 wireless routers.

Unit see's KPC-650 but can't connect to ISP verion


Hi First, are the drivers installed so that you can see the network but you just can't connect to it? Is the card activated? To get the Pc card activated contact the service provider I assume you mean Verizon United States Verizon Wireless www.verizonwireless.com 1-888-466-4646 When your card is activated you should be able to connect to Verizon network, this will have to be done directly with verizon we can't do it for you.

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

Need wireless card for Gateway pc


I suggest you look for a USB Wireless dongle. They are all much the same, and not expensive on the web. Much easier to fit and use than a card to put inside the PC. Unless you need some very sophisticated security system for corporate use, they all support the standard security methods which will be compatible with your wireless modem/router.
Good luck

I need to know the best router/modem combo to buy


Order the Westell 7500 from Verizon. May not be the best, but your love will be easier because it eliminates a device by providing a single gateway / combo modem router.
Speed issues are ambiguos. Call Verizon and have them take you through some slow speed troublshooting.

You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.

Wireless routers and laptops


You would not need a specific card for your laptop unless you wanted to upgrade to N technology. You would need a Internet Service Provider (ect. cable, verizon) and a router. I'd have Geek Squad setup your router to ensure it is properly setup and secure.
