Lost security key for netgear router WNR834Bv2

Have you checked the sticker on the router? Sometimes they actually print the security key on a sticker usually on the back or on the underside of the router.

You can also get to the routers internal settings, which will allow you to see or reset the security key, by plugging your PC directly into the router and typing in: in your browsers address bar. This should take you into the logon screen for your router.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at

Netgear WNR834Bv2 failed - powerlight is off, but all other lights are on solidly incl the router and wireless lights (the latter solid, not blinking) and all four ethernet port lights, despite nothing...

If you haven't tried using the reset button, should be an explanation how to use it on the router in the manual, try that.
Also, try a replacement power supply to the router, if you can get hold of one. As this maybe faulty.
However, likely faulty router, maybe due to power surge, due to lightning/bad weather.

WNR854T router only showing green light

Hi, I understand how bad you feel for a product that does not work. I work for NETGEAR Please take a tip of advise from me. Do not purchase WNR854T as this router has lots of bugs.You may opt for WNR200 or WNR834Bv2 which are more stable and performance routers.

Also, refurbished products will not be entertained by NETGEAR for any replacement support as these devices have been tempered and open. Thus the serial number would be missiing of these devices.

Hope, this information helps.

No Power to my Netgear Rangemax Next Wireless N-Router WNR834Bv2

This happens from time to time with these routers. It happenned to me with a Linksys and I found that the power unit in the router failed. One thing you could do is try a couple of different wall sockets or see if another adapter might work. Is your Netgear new enough to get replaced by the store?
