Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

My new laptop recognises my wireless internet but wont connect

I have a a Netgear WGT624 v2 router and my old lap top a R52 IBM thinkpad running on XP can connect to my wireless internet.

However my new computer a Lenovo R61 running on XP proffesional recognises my NEATGEAR wireless internet but cant connect to it. It doesnt come up with a error or anything but instead seems to just time out.
I have checked that its obtaining the IP address automaticaly and that all the setting are the same as the routers.
PLEASE HELP ME!!

    When i logged into my router there was no specific mention of "security settings" but i found an option to use a default MAC address or the computers one or a chosen one. I have it on default.

It has no network driver to connect to the internet how do I do that


Boot up your Toshiba laptop Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer,
Use this link :-
http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download There may be one or more driver files for each device, depending upon what device is installed on your IBM, download them all because only one will work with your device but you won't know which one until you install it and it works. Then copy the drivers from the Toshiba to a USB memory stick, then remove the memory stick and boot up the IBM R52 and insert the USB memory stick into the R52's USB port. Click on the USB memory device and double click on each of the device drivers. Each driver file will then expand and copy the driver files onto the C drive under a folder called Drivers. Open this folder to view the various drivers and run the Setup file for each driver.

LAP TOP CAN NOT GET ON INTERNET. NETGEAR WGT624.


1.) Check if you put static ip on your NIC. If not, then you are DHCP.

2.) Do some Command Line Interface at CMD.

a.) Start > Run > CMD
b.) ipconfig /all
d.) Try to release the ip by typing this command: ipconfig /release
c.) Then, renew : ipconfig /renew

try to flush your dns, by typing these:

ipconfig /flushdns

and register again your dns by typing these:

ipconfig /registerdns

If this solution does not correct your problem, try to reset your Netgear, by the way, do you put WPA on your wireless network?

Cannot connect to Netgear wireless router adminstrator page


Maybe that's not the correct IP address.
If you have Windows XP:
1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type cmd and press enter
4. Type ipconfig and press enter
5. Look for your gateway address, that's the address to put into your address bar.

Vista:
1. Start
2. In "Start Search" type cmd
3. Right click cmd that appears on the top and click run as administrator.
4. Type ipconfig and press enter
5. Look for gateway address

Have no set up instructions for the wgt624 wireless router


do you have the cd that came with it? if not, everything can be downloaded here

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGT624v1.asp

there 4 different routers in the wgt624 family. this is the first. check your label to be sure it isn't a later model chipset such as v2, v3, v4. if so use the download link at the netgear site to get the correct downloads for your specific model.

Wireless Internet connectivity not working.


Does it recognize your wireless network?
I your wireless switched on on the laptop, most laptop have a separate small switch to swicth on/off the wireless option, indicated by a small antenna with some waves.
Does it recognise any wireless network at all?
Try connect to a hotspot or unsecured network to see if that works. Double check all settings for your own network in your router and your laptop. 1 typo in a security password can be enough to be unable to connect.
