Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A desktop on my home network will not connect to the internet. Connection is through a wireless router (Netgear WPN824 v2). Other machines on the network have no problem connecting. I've tried troubleshooting with another expert on FixYa, but could not break the jam. Ideas?

    Has it connected before?
    Does it have wireless or is hard-wired?

if you're online and loses connection every couple of minutes,that most likely be and issue with you ISP. it's intermittent connection issue with the server or might be the modem if it's more than a year.. better is to contact your ISP to check on their end,also to create a work order to investigate and monitor the issue.

I have a desktop pc that I connected a Netgear WPN824 V2 to. I had to do a complete system restore and lost my connection to the internet completely. I have a laptop and a seperate desktop connected to the...


If you are connecting wired to the router, you should be able to just connect an ethernet cable and the pc will pick up an ip address automatically, and presto - you have internet.

If this is not happening, please check device manager and make sure that the network card is being detected properly, and is not in an error state (yellow circle with an exclamation mark). If it is, you should download the correct driver for it on another pc and install it :)

When you say 'complete system restore', I'm assuming you reinstalled windows from scratch. If you did this on a brand name pc, with the restore discs that came with it, the network card driver would have been installed as part of the setup routine. If you are using an add-on wireless card, then the driver would not have been installed when you reloaded windows, and you need to get the correct driver for your version of windows. If you reinstalled windows with a regular OEM or retail windows cd/dvd then I'd bet it's drivers for the network card.

Hope this helps!....let me know if you get stuck.....

This is likely what's going on.

Lost setup DC


The router is compatible with any operating system. You don't need to use the CD that came with it to setup the internet connection. Just open the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.2.1 on your browser. There you can see the automatic setup.

Neatgear wireless router wpn824 v2


Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.

Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.

Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.

Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...
