Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)
We have a Netgear WGR614 v8 wireless router and want to have our 2 laptops have access to internet and they cannot pick up a service? I know the router works because we currently have an addt pc working off of it. I think when the guy set up the router last year he said there would be something I had to switch before being able to do this. I cannot remember what exactly I'm suppossed to switch?? PS almost computer illiterate! We have satelitte internet service
The switch the installer was talking about is a setting in the router itself. The wireless in the router is probably turned off. If it had been enabled but no security configured, anyone within range could use your internet for whatever. (you become a wi-fi hotspot) The wireless is a user setting, accessible through the router's admin page, through your computer's browser. Consult the manual that came with the router. If you don't have the manual, you can download a copy at the Netgear website. Once into the router's admin functions, you can enable the wireless, and configure the settings, and the WEP key. You will need to create the WEP key in the router, and enter that key in the wireless settings in each laptop. the manual explains it all very well and understandable for the non-geek. Each function should offer a help page if there's something you don't understand.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
