Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, let's try a quick fix:

  • determine and copy the details of the Networking of any of the other computers that can connect without a problem including the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS servers;
  • open the Network properties of the LAN card or the WiFi card on the second laptop that has limited or no connection;
  • highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP);
  • click on the Properties button;
  • tick "Use the following IP Address"
  • enter the copied details (numbers) from the other computer;
  • the only difference would be that the new IP address should be slightly different;
  • example if the copied IP address is 192.168.0.11, pls make the new IP address 192.168.0.110;
  • all others stay the same.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

My desktop has a local area connection with limited to no connectivity. I had my desktop pc connected to a netgear n900 router and a vonage phone connected to the router's lan1 port. This caused i


Did this connection ever work before? I have a similar setup with Iristel and once in a while it goes down (Hurricane Leslie generated the problem last week).

Check whether the setup works without the Vonage device. This will tell you whether the problem is with your router or the Vonage box. If it works without the Vonage, the problem is in the Vonage box, you may find a good time to call Vonage for support.

I don't know whether the Vonage box (in my Iristel case it's a mediatrix 2 something) has to 'call home' before it lets your router set itself up.

If your router does not work without the Vonage, you have a simpler problem, the router is the issue. You can reconnect the Vonage and if the phones work, this confirms that the router is the problem. At least you can use the phones.

With the router, you need to log in to the admin screens and poke around until you find the problem. It is always a good idea to only change one thing at a time and always remember what changed immediately before the problem was noticed.

NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR) Wireless connection drops in and out regularly but frequency of this is unpredictable duration is usually a few seconds. Works find on direct ethernet...


Upgrade the Firmware of the router :
First you should check the version of you WPN824 (v1,v2 or v3). If there are no Version after the model number, it should be a version 1. Download the Firmware of your router given the correct version at this link :

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WPN824.asp


This is assuming that other wireless laptops has the same problem onyour wireless router. If other Laptops works great on your wirelessrouter without dropping any wireless connection, then you shouldconsider upgrading the wireless adapter on you own laptop.

***(If you haven't tried connecting otherwireless laptop wirelessly to the netgear, then you should try it firstto be sure that the netgear is the problem)

Steps on how to upgrade Netgear firmware :

  1. Download the correct file depending on your location and unzip the file to a convenient place such as your desktop.
  2. Log in the router at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 (or www.routerlogin.net ) (Which ever will work)
  3. Default User name : admin / password : password
  4. Click Maintenance > Router Upgrade.
  5. Click Browse and locate the file you just downloaded.
  6. Click Upload. While the firmware is loading, do not interrupt the upgrade process.

***Therouter reboots when the upgrade is complete.
***Tocheck that the upgrade was successful, log in to the router again at http://192.168.1.1and check the firmware version.

Trying to password protect my wireless internet with Netgear router and it is now telling me I have limited access when I try to connect to the internet with my laptop


Hi,
If you have password protected your router,and after the same its giving you a limited access, you need to delete the existing wireless connection and create a new one. When you are configuring the new connection it would ask you the password that you have given , the box where you need to put it in is called the Network key box. You can call netgear support and they can walk you through it aswelll.


Thanks

on your computer try to reinstall the device driver for wireless. try to connect the ethernet cable directly to the computer. if you have internet access, then most likely your netgear router needs to be reconfigured. you need to contact your internet service provider or router manufacturer for the reconfiguration of your router. mostly likely the security settings of the router needs to be changed.

Hi,lost laptop wireless connection to my netgear WGT624v3. It detects the router is there but says 'aquiring network address' laptop works ok if i plug it direct to the hub port... any ideas appreciated....


try setting the channel to 11, but it depends on your location, for the best connection try finding the right channel that suites your locations.

sometimes there are alot of devices that can interfere with the signal coming from the router.

for your reference try this link for wireless range.

Laptop stopped connecting to netgear over the last 12 hours will not connect wjereas other pc in house have no issues. How can i fix this Thanks


#1 Unplug the router, wait 30 second, plug it back in, let it reset, then see if you can connect.

#2 Right click your wireless connection, view wireless networks. Click on your network, then if the button says connect, try to connect to the network. If the button says disconnect, then disconnect, then after the network lis refreshes, click your network and click connect.

Netgear WGR614


First thing I did with my Netgear is this.
Plug in the dsl/cable modem to the PC directly. Then install the driver on the cd. If you are one of the unlucky types like I was, the router didn't come with a cd. Try going to Netgers page see if they have a driver. Most are basically auto install. Try this before you check the netgear site though. Plug in the cable/dsl modem to the router and the pc to the router. Resstart everything. This includes the modem, router and pc. When it pops back up, try seeing if that works. if not, try opening up Internet explorer. Type this in to the url. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0
That should bring up the netgear setup page for the router. If it ask for a password, the password on mine was
username - admin
password - password
It has an auto configure tab so click on that and that should automatically take care of everything for you. Let me know what happens!
