Trying to use old netopia router for new laptop

I have just bought a new dell laptop and want to use the original netopia router that I purchased from eircom a couple of years ago, but the new laptop wants the security key for the eircom router, can I find this info on my old laptop anywhere, as now I am with BT and so don't think eircom will give me much assistance. If not any suggestions on a good router to use with the dell, it's an inspiron 1545. Thanks

I am trying to setup my netopia 4432wg to connect to another netopia and set it up a wireless connection in a different room for other laptops.


Can you just setup wireless from the first 4432wg with the security key for laptop to use? It would be easier and simpler than connect it to the second router.

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

The wireless light is not illuminated and i can't get it to work??


This is a sign of an old router/modem. Also, try unplugging all of plugs that connect to the router/modem. Also, is this affecting you in connecting to the internet? if so, I recommend purchasing a new router/modem. They are very cheap now-a-days. :)

VPN connection - Client cannot connect


Hi mwells960

Theres alot of differnet things i could ask you, but im going to assume you're jsut setting up a basic VPN. That means that somebody is telecommuting to work and wants to hit the server at work.

That means you have a static ip at work, and your at home workers has whatever, a internet connection lets say. Im thinking DSL with ATT since its a netopia 3347N.

If the netopia has a gui interface, you cant vpn thru it. Its not a VPN router. Its a residential router that you're trying to make do too much.

The sad news is, you can't upgrade it to an Enterprise having firmware router anymore, netopia use to offer that, but when Motorolla bought them out last year, they did away with that nice little feature. For true VPN'ing with a router, first, go get a VPN router to start with.

Most people accomplish what you are doing by putting the netopia in to bridegemode, and then putting a VPN router like a linksys behind it.

Netopia 2247nwg router


Well I'm no expert on routers, but I've never heard of Netopia. If you can, try Linksys routers, they're so easy to use and they have the best customer service. I have a Linksys WRT-54GL Wireless Router linked up to a Wireless-G PCI adapter. I wont lie to you, Linksys is very easy to use, and you can see any activity on your network straight from your computer. I got my setup for less than $50.00, but I don't know if they got cheaper or not. They're blazing fast too, they can transfer data up to 54Mbps or higher, I've never used anything quite as simple as a Linksys router, I did have and old Aris router, but it was too difficult to use, so that's when I bought the Linksys. You won't be disappointed!

Hope this helps some!
