I am trying to get my wii to work on my netgear wgr164 v7 but i keep geting an error code 51030 & i need my password for my netgear


if you dont remember password for your wireless and also for your router.

the best bet would be to hit reset button on wireless router.

you will have to go through the phase of setting it all up again.

once you hit the reset, all the ip details (username and password are located under the netgear router)

let me know how you get on

It's a common problem with wireless routers, especially with certain ISP's, there's several theories about why this happens including cheap parts and software on the routers but it can be much worse if it's over a cable connection. Possibly because the MTU is higher on cable networks than wireless ones. This issue doesn't seem to affect wired connections to the routers as much. ie you may still get a working wired connection even if the wireless isn't working.

Certain makes are known to behave this way, with certain ISP's. eg in england there's a cable company called virgin media, belkin routers really don't seem to like them, but netgear seem to work much better, which is probably why virgin recommend netgear and will only supply netgear routers themselves.

Try changing the channel id if it's wireless, as there may be a lot of interference around you and this may or may not have a bearing on this issue. If that doesn't help then ask your isp what make they recommend as they should have an idea of what will work best, at least the tech support dept should.

In my opinion the best makes of routers are netgear and linksys. I also like belkin although they aren't as good as they used to be, and as mentioned can suffer from this problem quite badly in some cases. As you are with a cable

You will never completely eradicate this problem, all wireless routers will need resetting now and again, but it should be weeks or preferably months between each time. Cisco routers may be more reliable but they're business routers and are very expensive, and probably a bit more complicated to setup.

ps. I used to work for virgin media as tech support.

Trying to conect laptop to virgin media with netgear wireless adaptor the signal is strong but could not conect windows say to contact provider provider gave me number to enter 192.168.0.1 now i am lost


The router is not connected to the internet via Virgin media.

Your computer is connected only to the router wirelessly, that is why it says contact your internet supplier on how to connect the router successfully!

DHCP problems for wired devices on my network


It sure sounds like the switch is not passing the DCHPDISCOVER packets through to the Apple Extreme.

Is the switch a NetGear Prosafe switch, or a GS608, or a different model?

If it's a managed switch (e.g. ProSafe) then you can connect to the switch's management UI and confirm that the default uplink port is set up for the port that connects to the Apple Extreme, and that it's set to forward DHCPDISCOVER packets to that port

If it's an unmanaged switch like the GS608, then it shouldn't matter which port you connect, but if your model has one port labeled "uplink" then you should be sure to use that port to connect to tha Apple Extreme.

One last thought -- have you replaced the cable that you're using between the switch and the Apple Extreme? You could test the network by first connecting your computer to the Extreme so it gets a valid lease, then unplug it and hook up the full network (computer -> switch -> Extreme) and see if you can still ping the router.

That's a bunch of thoughts, but may not be a solution yet. If these don't address the problem, post back with the model number of your Switch, and I'll go more in-depth.

No connection when installing WGT624 Netgear router


Plug an ethernet cable into the wan port of the router from your virgin modem... then plug ethernet cable from computer into a port on the router....that should solve your problem.

Been given 1 but its virgin but my isp is with talktalk, will it work?


Virgin is a cable provider. They give you a cable modem in to which you can plug the router using a network (RJ45) connection. This router is an ADSL modem router.

In other words, it could NOT have been used on Virgin, but it should work with Talk Talk as it is a standard ADSL connection.

Reset the Router back to factory default and enter your details.
