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.....

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 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.

Xbox to router


It would work. Any wireless router that is wireless B,G,on N, will work. To be honest, D-Link isnt a very good brand, so I would buy a Linksys or Netgear. (If your gonna buy it, buy a good one)

Cable internet setup


No, you need to buy a wireless router and connect wireless router to cable modem. Non cable modems do not work on cabled wireless network.
If you buy cable router, buy either a router with no modem integrated or a modem/router for cable network, this last one may be best option, but it needs to be configured. Ask to retailer which models are ok with your broadband provider.
