Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Router loses connection

About every twenty minutes or so for the past two years I have had to walk upstairs and reset the router. I did not have this problem when I had DSL, but when I switched to Bright House (cable modem), thats when the problem began. I tried setting up the router several different ways but I still have the problem. I am sure there is some sort of simple solution, but until I know what that is I feel like a real idiot and just keep going back upstairs into my roomates room and pressing the little reset button on the back of it. Can anyone help me please?

Somebody else on this site had similair troubles and it was down to the fact that the cable company change the IP address of the connection frequently. Now, if this is the case your router will lose connection if it's a seperate modem as it will lose the modem IP address. I would contact your provider for a solution if this is the case.

This can be caused by a number of issues most have to do with the router itself and not the tablet. First, let's make sure the router DHCP Server is not frozen so take the following steps:
Step 1: If the router is separate from the Cable or DSL Modem, power down the router/wireless, next power down the cable/dsl modem. Power up the cable/dsl modem wait 60 seconds then power up the router/wireless wait 2 minutes
Step 2: Try to connect to the wireless
Step 3: If you have a modem or wireless router supplied by Comcast, Verizon, AT&T or any major carrier, contact them asking them to walk you through resetting and rebooting and updating the firmware to the router/wireless.
Step 4: After the reset and update try to connect, if it fails move on
Step 5: Log into the wireless/modem - let's change the wireless encryption. Go to the wireless settings, change the wireless settings to WPA Personal and add any pass-phrase. Try to connect using the new pass-phrase.
Step 6: If you still can not connect, as a last resort switch the wirlesss encryption to WPA for testing. Try to connect, if this works contct the vendor and have the modem replaced.

I have F5D7230-4 router. Modem downstairs connected to DSL. Computer upstairs needs a wireless card to work This is a ''G'' router, but it only picks up signal upstairs with a ''B'' card which I stole...


The Belkin F5D7230-4 router should offer "Wireless G" connections,
unless you have used its built-in web-interface to only allow "Wireless B" connections.

So, if your "upstairs" computer, with a "Wireless B" adapter, connects, it will connect only at the slower "Wireless B" speed.

If you want "Wireless G" speed, you will need to purchase a "Wireless G" adapter.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

AT&T FastAccess DSL & D-Link not working for me


Yes D-link is compatible with DSL. What you need to do is call your ISP and have them bridge your DSL modem. Next you need to verify your username and password for your internet account. Next call d-link and have them help you change your router's setting to work with PPPoE connections.

You'll need a way for your computer upstairs to connect to the hub/router. You can most likley get away buying a low priced wireless USB adapter like this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833340004
If your router has wireless security (such as WEP Encryption) you'll have to know the (WEP) key and SSID of the device in order to connect.

Wireless network broken, access to WRT54G & Motorola 2210-02 via http.. denied


I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.

DSL-G604T Problems


Step 1 - If one of your computers has a working ethernet port try wiring the computer to the DSL-G604T and see if the internet is working -- this should eliminate any issues between the router and the ISP. If this works and you know how you should check the router's configuration to assure it has not changed.

Is a link to the product info -- the installation guide and the Product manual if you do not have them may be useful. I will continue with additional steps depending on the outcome of the above actions. If you cannot check the router configuration yourself I will try to walk you through it based on the manuals.
