To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

SOURCE: Router Password

try admin and admin again for password. If that is not it try leaving the password box blank. Good luck Are you sure you did not change the password when you set it up the first time. If you did you have no other option than reset.

SOURCE: cannot connect my wifi laptop to the wireless router

If you use your original Win XP disks, there's a chance you now have XP SP1 (Service Pack 1). Make sure you've made all the necessary Windows Updates as working with WiFi networks was enhanced with XP SP2. Then you can try to find your wireless network and connect to it. If you had a secured network you'll need your previous network key (similar to a password, but without a username, the wireless key is needed to exchange data with the router) If you can't remember the settings on your Linksys you can reset it to factory settings with inserting something into the reset hole to press the hidden buton and holding it for several seconds until lights on the front flash. Then you HAVE to run the initial install procedure (find your CD and Quick Start sheet) because your router will be open and unsecured.

SOURCE: Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire

before you connect the netgear router to your 2wire modem, you have to get the modem configured first. you did not include the firmware version of your modem (firmware version is found at the UI, go to gateway.2wire.net, click on the system icon.) for firmware version less than 3.7, go to homeportal/management, click on configure services, uncheck enable routing, then click on submit. for version 3.7 or higher, go to homeportal/management, click on configure under broadband link, put a dot in disable pvc search, set VPI to 0 & VCI to 35, the connection type box should be direct IP, then click on submit. then go to configure services, uncheck enable routing box, then click submit. you will notice the broadband link on the 2wire modem turn orange/amber, then you have successfully set the modem to bridged mode. that way you can now connect the router according to manufacturer's instructions (or just read the manual for the netgear router....)

Windows XP
1. Click start
2. Click run
3. Type cmd in the box and press enter
4. On the black screen type ipconfig and press enter
5. Look for the default gateway
6. Copy that and use that to access the configuration page using the internet explorer
7. Open internet explorer, type http://the default gateway you copied in the address bar of the internet explorer
ex: http://192.168.1.0

Windows Vista
1. Click pearl button (start in xp)
2. Click on start search box (run in xp)
3. Type cmd in the box
4. Right click the black icon up at the top
5. Click on run as administrator
6. Click on continue
7. On the black screen type ipconfig and press enter
8. Look for the default gateway
9. Copy that and use that to access the configuration page using the internet explorer
10. Open internet explorer, type http://the default gateway you copied in the address bar of the internet explorer
ex: http://192.168.1.0

Why doesn't my netgear extender ask for name and password when I try to use it to connect to internet. It tells me that there is an authentication problem


Hi there! smile.gif Please note that the Tenda 150mbps Wireless Range Extender A3 uses a default IP address of 192.168.0.254 - you must set your IP address to the 192.168.0.* range (* = any number between 2 and 253) to login.

The default access username / password (if required) are admin and admin.

Once you've logged in, you can configure the access point to route through your existing wireless router as the default gateway (eg. if your wifi router is 192.168.1.1, then you would route through that, and set your Repeater (Extender) IP to 192.168.1.2 so that you can connect to it and then "relay" your connection through the repeater. It doesn't mirror the connection details for the existing wifi router, it simply creates an "additional" access point to connect through to your existing wifi router - creating a bridge, essentially.

The extender can be linked to the existing wifi router via LAN cable or WDS. For WDS, you will need to set the IP's 1 digit apart in the last segment (see above IP difference), and switch them both in the Wireless menu to ""Wireless Networking Mode: Network Bridge (WDS), but the SSID must remain the same (eg. "Tenda1") for both of them (it doesn't cause a network loopback), and any wireless security authentication must be identical (password / pass phrase / key + encryption algorithm) on both devices. Again, as with the above point, remember to set the gateway of the extender / repeater to that of the primary WiFi router.

For extra information and disambiguation (if required), see the following page, and scroll down: http://www.enjoypad.com/wireless-access-point/96-tenda-...

My netgear G54/N150 wifi usb micro adapter wont connect to the internet


Your computer operating system makes the network choice. If you're using windows, look in the lower right-hand corner and you should see signal-strength bars like on your cell phone. Click on those bars and you should see a list of available wireless networks. Click on the network for your uverse router and choose "Disconnect." Then click on the network for your hotspot and choose "Connect." Then your computer should connect to your hotspot.

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

Netgear wifi vs moto x phone


Step 1
hey can you login to your router of yes make sure your router is dhcp enabled, then on you phone kindly delete or forget your current wifi settings, then do a phone restart and register a wifi (connect to a new wifi spot) and try again.

Step 2
  1. step%203.png
    If the page displays, you have Internet access. If the page does not display in a minute, see the "No Internet With New Router, Computer or Adapter: MAC Spoofing" article.
  2. Determine if the modem's IP address can be seen.

    In the router interface, go to the Status Page. For more information, see your router user manual.
    step%202.png
    If the modem's IP address cannot be seen, reboot the modem, router, and computer, in that order. Be sure to wait for each device to completely reboot before rebooting the next.

    If the modem's IP address is seen, and you stuill cannot access the Internet, you might have a problem with your browser's settings. Your security might be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser might be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to High, change it to Medium. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are not dimmed, settings for a dial-up connection are being used.

If the router ssid reads virginmedia.... then you have not reset the router. The default name for a Netgear router is Netgear.
Push the reset button in (on the back of the router) and hold it for at least 15 seconds or until the power light flashes.
Now the username and password and SSID should be reset to the default.
