  1. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
once you see the setup you can configure and change the name and security of your network
to find out which one is your network place the router as close to the laptop/desktop so that u get a strong signal
if u get other networks u will no yours if try logging onto them and it asks for a password..if u have not configured your without security then that network must be yours..
hope it helps..do letme know if u need anymore help..

I don't know how to connect my second laptop to the netgear router to get internet service.


Go to the first pc that is already connected. Right click your connection and note the status/advanced information, find the gateway IP address. Open a web browser and login to your netgear router. NetGear default is admin and password.

Now go to the wireless setup, note the ssid or name of your wifi network, also note the security encryption and phrase you are using. If you don't remember you can set it again there and save but then you will need to reconnect to it, if all else fails use a data cable and plug directly up to the router to manage it.

Once you know your wifi name and security key you setup, go to pc 2 and use the wireless utility scan or refresh you should see the name of your wifi network, click join to connect, it will challange you for the password. It if doesn't then all of your neighbors can use your internet and access your computers. Need to be sure to secure your wifi signal by managing it via the web management using your web browser.

I am trying to connect another computer to my wireless network but i do not know my netgear code, where do i find this?


Netgear code? Can you be more specific?

Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".

  1. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  2. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  3. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  4. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
  5. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  6. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.

My husband has Netgear in our house but i need an IP address for my lap top and Ipod, can you help me with that?


If your laptop has wireless card installed, turn on wireless radio of laptop. It will show the networks available and will allow you to create a new adhoc network. Try to create a new adhoc network and assign a new network name. It will broadcast an IP over adhoc network and you can connect other wireless device to the laptop using this adhoc network name.

Sorry if this seems a repeat question but I can not find the answer on here... I have a Netgear 54 Mbps wireless router WGR614v6. When I plugged it in, it does not have a wireless signal. Please note that...


for the laptop to detect the router you need to install the router's driver in you laptop and follow the instructions while installing since its a new laptop it always need to be configured.

Extremely inconsistent connection to router (Net Gear) & Internet


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Netgear router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Netgear router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router:Netgear suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router:
Having default wireless settings on the Netgear router may cause conflict with other Netgear routers within your network range.Netgear suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Low signal from my wireless adaptor / router


Have you tried connecting the laptop in a different wireless network? Try changing the channel in your router and you may also upgrade the firmware of your router.
