Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try: 1. Check physical connections. a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up. b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up. 2. Access the router's web-based utility. a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password". Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default. To reset the router:a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds. b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.3. Configure the router. If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below: a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab. b.

Then, click on Apply.4. Configure the wireless settings. a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup. b. Change the SSID to any unique name. c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit". e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number. Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection. f. Click Apply button to save the changes. g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.5. Power cycle. a. Power off the modem, router and computers. b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking. c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online. If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below: 6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

Cannot conect my Router


1.Did you set an IP address to the new router? If no.
set it to 192.168.1.2 or in DHCP mode.

2. Install the new AP software(i.e uninstall the older version from your PC/laptop) which would be available in CD for the new router package.
This will solve the problem.

I dont have the installation disk anymore. Is there an online installation. Buying another or ordering one is not an option. thank you


Hi,

Try this ....

Switch on the router

Switch on a computer with wireless capability

Ensure the computer has received an IP address from the router (DHCP)

To do this start a DOS session and type ipconfig -a and make sure the PC has an address like 192.168.1.x

Fire up a broswer window, ignore any errors about pages not loading

Type in 192.168.1.1 in the browser URL and hit return

This should give you the login page for the router. The username and password is usually "admin" and "netgear1" for NetGear routers, depending how new it is. If not try "admin" and "password".

Good luck!
Ripface.
