Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Installed Netgear but can't send e-mail

Have TCW connection on the PC, and installed Netgear WGT624 to get internet/mail access on laptop. After hours on the phone with Netgear, it worked. But I played with my email settings trying unsuccessfully to set up exchange server. Now can't remember the preference settings from before, so can't send e-mails from laptop (but can receive). It's a MacBook OSX. (This e-mail is coming from the PC.) Thanks for your help

Re: Installed Netgear but can't send e-mail

Ya have to "Open a Port" or "Port Foward" to allow your SMTP and POP3 services to communicate with the Server.. so find out what "Ports" ya need open and using the Admin interface change them to allow your emails to work. This info is generally found in the Manual of the router or online.. And OR your firewall hust be set to pass them on thru too..

Netgear WGT624 V3 Wireless Router Problems by BigG2 - January 16, 2007 1:17 AM PST

Hi Guys/Gals,

My wireless connection is not working and i cannot log on to it, I have connected a Netgear WGT624 V3 Wireless Router to my Motorola SurfBoard SB5101E Modem which is connected to Telewest Cable Broadband (internet works fine if i access directly through the modem), on the router the power light is lit and also the internet light flashes rapidly but the wireless light comes on for a couple of
seconds and then goes out - i think this is the problem? I have tried logging on to the router to check the wireless settings but cannot access it, i have also tried connecting directly via LAN but cannot get this to work either although i am not sure if i have connected it correctly?

Any ideas/comments/advice is very much appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop

If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...

More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

No connection when installing WGT624 Netgear router

Plug an ethernet cable into the wan port of the router from your virgin modem... then plug ethernet cable from computer into a port on the router....that should solve your problem.

I have no installation manual for the wgt624


You can download a manual from the Netgear website.

You'll need the full model and version number of your router. If you're not sure of this, take a look at the base of the router, where there should be a label with this information (for example, WGT624v4, or WGT624v2.)

Then visit this page and click the link to the Support Page for your model number:

Links to the downloadable installation guides/manuals are usually on the left-hand side. Good luck.

Wireless connection

Make sure that your computer is getting a valid IP address from the router. If your wireless network is secured, you might as well consider checking the wireless settings.
