Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router
I have a netopia cayman 3300 dsl modem connected to a wpn824 netgear router. firtly I could not connect to the internet from a wired connection from the ethernet port of the dsl moden to the internet port of the router. this issue was resolved by connecting the cable from the modem to one of the ethernet ports on the router and another cable from the router to the pc. Now I have setup a wireless connection which communicates a signal with the pc but fails to access the internet.the wep key which I set on the router was 01234abcde and was also set on the pc's wireless card (which is a dell pci card). Please help in trying to shed some light on this matter
If you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.
