If you use a Netgear router to broadcast a WI-FI (Wireless Fidelity) signal in your home, you can easily double the range of your network by connecting a second router to one of the LAN (Local Access Network) ports located on the back of the Netgear router. You can use a Linksys, Belkin, D-Link or even a second Netgear router to extend the range. Any router that allows you to access the router settings to turn off the router's DHCP server is usable as a range extender.

Complete a master reset on the router you want to use as an extender. Typically, routers have a reset hole located on the back or side of the router. Push a metal push pin into the hole until the lights on the router flash. Often the settings on routers have been manipulated to enhance a network connection. Resetting the router ensures you can access all of the settings and not encounter any issues when making the connection. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the router's LAN ports located on the back of the router. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port located Enter the router's IP address into an Internet browser Web address field. If you do not know the default IP address, reference TechSpot.com for a list of router IP addresses. Enter the default username and password for your router. If you do not know the default login information, reference Router Passwords.com for the default login information for your router brand. Access the DHCP server settings. Usually, this is located in the "Basic Setup" section of the router settings page. Turn off the DHCP server and then select "Update Settings." The location of the DHCP server can be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Access the "Wireless Setup" page and change the SSID to match the network name you use for your Netgear router. Select "Update Settings" to save the network name. This allows computers to move from the Netgear router to the router used as a range extender without requiring a second wireless profile being set up on the computer. The SSID could be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Access the "Wireless Security" page and update the router's password to match the password used on the Netgear router. If you do not secure your network, skip this step. The wireless password could be located on a different page if the router is an uncommon brand. Remove the Ethernet cable from the router and the computer. Plug one end of the cable into the WAN (Wide Area Network) port located on the back of the router you want to use as a range extender. Plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports located on the back of the Netgear router. Hope this helps

Cannot connect NetGear WN3000RP with wireless"Settings do not match for my computer."
Going only by this one clue, it appears that you must delete the network that was originally set up & start again. This is done in the network & sharing area. Look for "manage connections" or "manage adapters"- something like that. You're looking for the list of available networks. You will see your own network name in a list format. Delete it.
Now, you can set up your new hardware & it won't complain about "wrong settings in your computer".
Cheers!

Wireless security settings on laptop do not match network settings


You will need to change the existing connection to match the "new" settings. I have had this issue with visita as well. If you open the wireless connections, go to advanced settings click on the "saved" SSIDs you can either delete the exisiting one, and start over (easy) or you can modify the settings to match the "new" upgraded system. Visita and XP store these for future use, problem is if one changes it "Doesn't match" so just delete the existing one and recreate it.

If they changed the password for the system or the type of encryption WEP to WPA etc this will correct the issue.
You may want to turn off the IPv6 which can also cause issues with Wifi in some locations.

My computer will not connect to the internet when I hook up to the Linksys wrt150n I don,t understand It because it use to work this is about to drive up the wall I have tried resetting the router but it...


If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless card.computer.
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

Can no longer connect through router.


Reset the router by holding in the 'reset' button to set it back to it's default factory condition. When it says the settings don't match, it is referring to the encryption / authentication...Windows sometimes has different names for the security types than D-Link does. (Windows uses the word 'enterprise' somewhere and you won't find that on your router.) Look through the options and be sure that everything matches up. --Reset, start over.

The router status is saying 'validating identity'. One of the computers in the house is able to connect, but the other one won't.


The computer that will not connect does not have security settings that match the router settings. You need to consult your router manual, determine what those settings are on the rounter, then go into your control panel and under "wireless" set them to match.

While i m entering pop services i m getting error message nt valid plz helpme abt the same


First of all you need to set up your email POP settings to match what service you are using. They all are a little different and you need to research what settings you need. Then you need to match the settings on your computer to the correct email provider you are using.

My wireless settings got changed and need to re configure


You need to make sure that the settings on you laptop match settings on your router. You can log in to your router by opening your browser (from computer connected to router) and type 192.168.1.1 in the address. If you haven't been in it before the user name should be "admin" and the password is "password". Look for the wireless section and write down setting and enter them in the config for the wireless on your laptop. If you have a friend that may be a little more experienced ask for help. Not to infer that you can't do it I just don't know your expertise.
