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.

Hello
The Model R52 has the wireless connectivity option, there are two possibllities
1. you may not install the wireless LAN drivers or you doesnt configure it 2. The wireless LAN gone faulty
figure out these possibilities, or you can install USB wireless LAN to your computer.
Good Luck

So I have a little problem. I'm trying to find out how to connect 2 wireless routers together from across the house. The internet side is connected to a Linksys wireless router (WRT54G). This is located in...


you need a wireless ethernet bridge(like wet54g/wet610n) which will grab signals wirelessly from u're primary router wrt54g,& then a ethernet cable from wireless bridge will be connected to one of the lan port of u'rs netgear router(otherwise u will not be able to do file & printer sharing between 2 routers)Remember,the ip address of all 3 devices shold be of same class.

Problem with wireless from Netgear wgt624 v2.


Do you have 2 router? a wireless one and one thats not?

If thats the case, try just plugging in the wireless. if your connection is automatic it will detect the connection and give you an internet connection

If its not you must configure the IP manually.

But you must only USE ONE ROUTER..

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.
