Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Kit

1 Answer

Connecting a router to a gateway

I have a Netgear gateway that I rent from my Cable company to have wifi in my home. Since its reach is limited, I wanted to expand it by adding a Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router, but I have problems synching the two devices. Is that even possible and if yes, how? Do I just connect the two by using an ethernet cable. Is there a specific sequence I need to follow? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, but I don't get that just yet. Isn't the 192.168.0.1 you mention the website address that I type into my browser's address bar to find the settings for my router? How could I possibly change that address and save as something else? I might be able to save the actual IP address for the router that I find listed when I go to that website, but not the web address, correct? I'm a little confused as to the different IP addresses that appear to exist.....

Sure, you just need to change the ip address of the Rangemax. Netgear usually uses 192.168.0.1 for their router ip addresses. Plug the ethernet cable from your PC into the Rangemax. Open a web browser and put 192.168.0.1 into the address bar. You should reach the home page of the Rangemax. Change it's ip address to 192.168.0.2 and save.

Run an ethernet cable from one of the four ports in your Netgear gateway to the internet in port on your Rangemax and all should be well.

    Both your gateway from your cable company and the Rangemax have the same ip address. Hence they cannot be plugged into each other and work without a confilict.



    IP addresses are assignable. If you read my instructions again, you will see that I am having you disconnect your computer from the gateway and plug it into the Rangemax. When you put 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your web browser, it will then access the home page of the Rangemax, not your gateway. You haven't told me what model of Rangemax you have, but the owner's manual shows you how to change the ip address. The manual is also available online at www.netgear.com.



    After you change the ip address to 192.168.0.2, if you want to access the home page of the Rangemax, you will type 192.168.0.2 into the address bar of your browser. Now that your two pieces of hardware have different ip addresses in the same range, they will work together when reconnected.





    You should also create a WPA/2 password for wireless access.

You may want to do a reset on the router by holding down the reset button on the back of your router. That will reset and MAC address filtering or any other security that you might have turned on.

Just having the wireless router without connecting it to cable modem or DSL modem will not allow you to get onto the Internet. The wireless card in your computer/laptop will allow you to get onto the Internet at a free public WiFi hot spot location such as McDonalds, Star Bucks, at the airport.
Also the wireless card in your computer/laptop may allow you to connect into an unsecured wireless router from your neighbors, if their wireless router is within range of your computer/laptop but without their permission to use their Internet, it is considered stealing from your neighbor. They have a set download limit from their Internet Service Provider and by you connecting to their ISP you may cause them to exceed their download limit and they would be charged additional costs for every Mega byte over their limit.

Open a command prompt, type "IPCONFIG", and look for the Gateway or the DHCP server. It may be different than 192.168.0.1, like 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.0.2, or even 10.0.0.1

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.
