Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

1 Answer

I have new Sony Vaio Laptop and Sony Vaio All in One computers with internal Intel (R) Wireless WiFi Link 5100 network adapters and I am trying to connect to a Rangemax WPN824 (MIMO) router. I can see the wireless net, yet I can't connect. Tried WEP and WSA. Failed. I have a Medion laptop that easily connects to the Rangemax with a WPN511 wireless adapter. Is there any way to connect using the wireless Intel network adapter or do I need a Netgear wireless adapter for the Sony computers?

Possible reason why your computer is not getting online wirelessly is because the wireless settings on the router and the wireless settings on your computer do not match. Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

A. Checking the Wireless Settings of the Router

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. 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.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on the Wireless Settings under Setup and take note of the SSID.
5. You may also change the wireless channel here. We suggest channels 1, 6 and 11.
6. At the bottom of the page, look for the Security Options. If in case that the security is set to WEP or WPA-PSK, we have to enter the same wireless security on all wireless PCs. To make sure of the key, we can try modifying the security. Please refer to the following:

For WEP: Select Key 1 and enter 10 hexadecimal digits (0-9 and A-F) on the empty box beside it. Then, click on Apply.

For WPA-PSK: Enter an alphanumeric key (minimum of 8 characters) on the Passphrase box and click on Apply.

Note: The Key and Passphrase are case-sensitive.

7. On the left pane, please scroll down and click on Wireless Settings under Advanced. Please make sure that the boxes for Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable SSID Broadcast are checked.
8. Click on the Setup Access List button and uncheck the box Turn Access Control On.
9. Click the Apply button.

B. Connecting to the Wireless Network

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

I recently installed a wireless 11n network and my nieghbours sony vaio laptop crashes (I forget the model). Should I suggest to him that he disables the wifi and buys an addon usb wifi connector?


Could be that you need to update the drivers and possibly the firmware
for the router especially if OS is Vista

Intel 2195 or 2200BG wireless adapters can cause this problem update
can solve the problem, I would check your friends to see which adapter is in the machine, link is for Intel

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?iid=subhdr+downloads
If you try this route create a restore point
Hope this is of some help, let me know if I can help further

I have a Intel wireless Wifi link 5100 card but I think this card is not working any more. I want to check this point to see if I must send back my laptop to Sony


plug the card into your computer if its not internally installed...click START , controll panel, double click on system, select the hardware tab, then select device manager....scroll down to "network adapters" click on the plus next to it.
If there is a yellow ! or ? next to your wireless device the drivers are not present, corrupted, or installed incorrectly and need to be reinstalled for the wireless card to work properly.
If you find a problem there the driver is available here : http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/INTEL/Intel-WiFi-Link-5100-5350-Driver-12-2-0-11.shtml download it to your desktop, unxip it if neccessary and install. Please post again here if you need further assistance.

Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks


Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?

Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.

Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card
