Rangemax-internet only works when comp directly connected via LAN
I set up my Rangemax WPN824v3 exactly the way it said in the manual. I have internet when the ethernet cable is connected to my laptop but when I disconnect it to make my laptop "wireless", my computer connects with an excellent connection to the router but when I bring up the IE, it has the cannot display page. The mac address, cables, IP, WPA key and internet network are all set up correctly. How can I get the internet to work without having to have my computer plugged into the router directly?

I have the WPN824v3 and it can be balky finding and connecting to a network sometimes. It works best (and gets the best range) using the Netgear RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 adapter (WPN111). The router and this adapter are (according to Netgear) specifically designed to work with each other, thereby maximizing both the range and the speed of the router.
This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem.
2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem.
3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router:
'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces'4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled.5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID.6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key. ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.
The Netgear wireless router wireless settings need to be configured and the the wireless card in the computer and XBox needs to be configured with the Netgear wireless settings. Follow these steps. : - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL 3. Enter the router setup login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WAP2 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.
Try 192.168.0.0 which would be the default address to access your modem. This should allow you to go into the modem and adjust changes. I know on the bottom of my router there is an administrator default password that can e used to access the mainframe of the modem. Check out these features in there. I would start first by connecting via LAN again and then try to conntect to it via a WAN but again see if you can access the modem using the 192.168.0.0.
a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".
Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.
2. Adjust the MTU setting.
a. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab. b. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300. c. Click on the Apply button.
Note: You may verify from your ISP the recommended MTU size you can use.
yes,that's very possible.you can connect directly the wii to your lan if your wlan is having some kind of a glitch that will not allow you to connect to the internet.now,once connected via lan,you can browse on opera per the message you've been getting and see if you can follow their instructions to solve the matter.later on if you still can't connect,you might want to set-up again you wii connect settings.make sure your router is working properly and is set to detect/accept your wii.also,your wep or wpa password should exactly be the one you need to key in on your wii internet setting.if it's wpa,try to select AES.no guarantees.hope this helps.
Sounds like the network card on the 3rd computer might be set to a manual ip address. Is the rangemax router the dhcp server? if so is the network card on the 3rd computer set to obtain an ip address automatically?
can you tell me the ip address of the rangemax router?
whats the ip address of the 3rd pc?
