Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

1 Answer

Netgear rangemax wpn824 incorrecty or won't detect wireless conn.

I have a rangemax wpn824na v.2

Worked great on my cable connection.

I have moved and now have a wireless broadband (microwave I believe (sattelite looking gizmo pointed at an antenna 6 miles away)). The router either incorrect identifies it as a dynamic IP, or when it does ID it as a static IP, it either won't connect, or throttles it down to under 500kb download speeds, then looses connection.

If cat5 cable coming from dish is connected directly to the back of my PC, it works fine at 3000kb download speeds.

Any ideas??

Thank you

Check ISP configuration to match Router settings with your supplier requirements.
Your issue seems related with wrong settings on Router WAN configuration.
Check if DHCP is required on your router or if it has tio be configured as a BRIDGE.
Your ISP should be ready to support you. (Or Netgear)

Can I connect non-wireless printer directly to netgear rangemax wpn824?


No you cannot.
To make your printer a network printer you need to connect your printer to a network print server and the connect the print server to the Netgear using a LAN cable.

I have a netgear wireless router wpn824 and in moving lost the software to be able to connect to another home computer (was on cable at other location) can you purchase just the software


There is a MANUEL way to get the router working. Find somebody that would know the login IP Address of the router (could be 192.168.1.1) and then you can set it up from within your Internet browser. Quite a tricky router to set up though but it can be done

Connecting a router to a gateway


Sure, you just need to change the ip address of the Rangemax. Netgear usually uses 192.168.0.1 for their router ip addresses. Plug the ethernet cable from your PC into the Rangemax. Open a web browser and put 192.168.0.1 into the address bar. You should reach the home page of the Rangemax. Change it's ip address to 192.168.0.2 and save.

Run an ethernet cable from one of the four ports in your Netgear gateway to the internet in port on your Rangemax and all should be well.

Netgear Firewall


with the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.
