Cannot connect NetGear WN3000RP with wireless

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 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 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

I have to change my router from wpa to wep and can't figure out how to do it. I have printed out instructions and it tells me to go here or there but when I do the options I'm supposed to cl

I need to know what my WEP key or WPA passphrase are

You cannot view it, you can only erase it and create a new one. To do this, grab a pen or pencil and hold it down on the small button on your router in the back. This will cause your router to reset all settings, re-naming your wireless network back to NETGEAR with no password. Plug a network cable from your computer to the router, go to your browser and type in "" and it will ask for a username and password. The username is 'admin' and the password is 'password'. Find the setting for configuring a new wireless password and you should be good to go! Let me know if this helped by leaving me a positive rating!

I have just purchased an iPad 2 and it's asking me for my Netgear password; the default password doesn't work, so I must have changed it - but I can't remember what I changed it to!

so then you can simply reset the router so to go back to its default password ...or if you want to know your recent password, simply use your computer that is currently connected to your router and is working...then follow the steps in this link Configuring your Netgear DG834G & DG834GV Wireless Network
Note: you dont need to configure the wireless just check the password you have setup there so you can connect your ipad wirelessly...
Thats it!! (-_-)

My msi u100 mini laptop recognised my wireless router but is not letting me connect i have inputed my network key off the side of my net gear router ,it won t accept it

Do you mean the encryption key? It may have been changed.
If so you can reset the Netgear back to the default settings and setup a new encryption key.
To RESET the router, press the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for approx. 10 secs until the LEDs flash.
For instrustions on how to secure and configure the Netgear wireless router and the wireless card in the computer/laptop please click on this link :-
The Netgear configuration URL
Default login = admin
Default PW = password
Should you need further help, please leave me a comment.
