NETGEAR Technical Support Engineer 1. access 1st the router's setup page * open up a browser * http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com/ 2. go to wireless settings under setup if you have a wireless phone at home change the channel of the router, make sure they dont have same channel 3. change the mode of the router to w/c your laptop's wireless adapter support (eg. b only, g only ) 4. try to change security option wpa instead of wep (make sure your laptop's adapter support it) 5. change SSID (note: if you've change the SSID of the router, remove the profile on your computer under preferred networks 6. change your passphrase 7. Disable Advanced 108Mbps Features 8. Disable Setup Access List (it can be found in wireless settings under advance) 9. upgrade firmware of the router * before upgrading make sure you backup the settings (go to backup under maintenance) * if latest firmware is installed * flush firmware (flushing it is just reinstalling even if the latest firmware is installed) 10. power cycle frequently (turn off for 10 seconds then turn it on again) 11. If all of these didnt work call your laptop manufacturer for help 12. call gearhead -> 1-888-615-3488 13. or call our technical support 1-888-netgear lucky if you got me ***caesar *** NETGEAR technical support engineer

Make sure that your laptop wireless NIC card is plugged in correctly (double check by removing and reinserting, you may have a little difficulty when removing the arial connectors just be careful and use a small flat head screwdriver), I say this as I had bacicaly the same problem with a dell laptop and a 3com wireless access point.

If 'obtain an ip address automatically' is enabled, check the IP Address (Go to the command prompt - Start -> Run -> cmd; in the command prompt type 'ipconfig'). If we have a valid IP Address - something in the range of 192.168.1.x, attempt to ping the router (Go to the command prompt - Start -> Run -> cmd; in the command prompt type 'ping 192.168.1.1'). A successul ping would mean we have a successful connection between the router and the laptop. Attempt pinging certain websites thereafter. If the ping is unsuccessful, look for any active software firewall. Disable the firewall and try pinging again. You haven't specified the ISP and the make / model of the modem. Also, check the IP Address on the PC which is able to go online.

Right click on your wireless connection in taskbar and click on open network connectons, right click on your wireless network connection and go down to properties. On the general tab click on tcp/ip and click properties, then make sure obtain IP Address automatically is enabled. If you still cannot connect, try this:- ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /).

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

Why does my WGT624 keep loosing connection. I would be on the Internet and for some reason, I would loose connection to the Internet. I have a Dell Inspiron...1521 computer.


In my case too this happened initially with my lenovo y410 laptop with netgeat router. In laptops if th ewireless network is set with "public" profile then the connection is sometimes dropped by the driver. If you or only a few persons are the only user(s) of your router and your WLAN is securely encrypted, then you can change the wireless settings of your laptop to be in "private" network, which will solve your problem.

Netgear WGT624 router won't connect to the internet


I am in the UK and have found through experience the Netgear's seem to work perfect on a BT line (equivalent of AT & T)
but not on the cable.

I would suggest purchasing a Linksys by Cisco WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router as these seem to install in minutes,
saves me hours of wasted time when setting up wireless networks.

Make sure that your computer is getting a valid IP address from the router. If your wireless network is secured, you might as well consider checking the wireless settings.

As you say that, you are able to go online with the modem, connect your modem- router and laptop witha cable and check if you are able to go online with the router wired first, if yes, then the w/ls settings has to be checked..open your w/ls network connection, remove your preferred wireless network and then try to reconnect again and check.. if you are not able to gon online wired with the router, disconnect power cables from modem- router , wait for 10 sec, and reconnect it , wait till all the lights come up and then reconnect, check if you are able to go online if not your router has to be reconfigured,,

plz check and revert back in case of any issues
