Re: low signal need netgear name
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..

Hello, my name is Glenn, I am not familiar with wireless signal boosters, but I have a great idea on how to set up networks and multiple routers in 1 network. How I picture a wireless signal booster to work is to plug in from your netgear router, into the Edimax.
The wireless router has capacity to over perform only situation with the device connectoins to your computer are receiving signals from more than one network. You are allowing several signals to access the computer. Establish one network pass at a time. a stronger once should be chosen and the device would perfrom to capacity. The network setup need to be reconfigured
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.
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".
In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
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.
Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
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.
Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.
Dude try the following steps it will help,else let me know the exact problem
Click Start > Connect To > Show all connections, and then double-click your wireless network.
Click General > Properties.
Click the Wireless Networks tab.
Under Preferred Networks, click your home network and then click Properties.
Click Authentication, then clear the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network check box. (If you cannot click the check box, then you are not using 802.1x authentication or wireless security.)
1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Manage. 2. Go to Services then go to Service and Applications. 3. Double click on Wireless Zero Configuration. 4. Change the Start Up Type to Automatic and click on Apply. 5. Click on Start and press OK to close the window. 6. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'. 7. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'. 8. Go to the 'Wireless Networks' tab. 9. Check the option 'Use Windows to Configure this Wireless Connection' and click 'OK'.
Now please perform the following instructions to connect to the wireless network:
1. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'. 2. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'. 3. Click on the 'wireless network' tab. 4. Under Preferred networks if you see any name in the list then highlight the name and click remove. Click OK. 5. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'View Available Networks'. 6. Look for the SSID (aka Network Name) of the Wireless router or access point. 4. Highlight thee SSID from the list that you want to connect to. 5. Type the security Key here and click on the 'Connect' button. 6. You should have successfully established a wireless network connection.
There are several problems reported that may cause disconnection. First is the hiding of the SSID (wirelessnetwork name) and enabling WEP or WPA encryption. The recommended solution for that is to unhide the SSID in the router configuration.
Second is that there are more and more wireless devices and occasionally interference occurs on a single channel (even from non computer devices like wireless phones. As routers are often set to channel 6 you may be competing for radio communications with your neighbors. The recommendation is to switch the router to either channel 1 or 11. If your first choice does not work try the other.
Also watch out for wireless phones base stations too close to routers.
