I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

There is a MANUEL way to get the router working. Find somebody that would know the login IP Address of the router (could be 192.168.1.1) and then you can set it up from within your Internet browser. Quite a tricky router to set up though but it can be done

Need to protect my wireless network!


you must logon to the NetGear wireless router and setup wireless security. choose a security type usually WEP, type a key phrase or passphrase and voila, you will have to re-connect on your clients by entering the password when you get prompted for it.

Hi,

Initially, what would be needed is for you to have an active Internet account from an ISP. Thereafter, said ISP will provide you with a modem of a connection method which then should be connected to your Netgear wireless-G router. Soon as all configurations have been made by your ISP, it is a matter of wirelessly linking your Gateway M-6322 to the Netgear to access the Internet.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Futher query about your solution ....


You will need a wireless router. People have different preferences towards these units I prefer netgear. They are cheap, reliable nary a problem.

You connect the broad band modem to the uplink or internet slot.
But first, connect your pc or laptop directly into 1 of the 4 ports on the router before connecting the router to the internet.

open your browser, IE/Mozilla, whatever you are using. if the router log in screen does not appear (which it should by default)
type in the ip address of the router where normally you would type in the web address (www.geeks.com) netgear uses 192.168.15.1, username Administrator, password is password.

from here you can plug in the uplink to the modem and let the configuration utility configure your internet settings.

A unit like this is what I have, link, however the router is what you need for your home wireless. I live in a small town in upstate NY and where I am there are 5 homes nearby I can connect to wirelessly. I didn't have to purchase my own router.

I purchased mine for 29.95 USD last year.

Archos 605 wifi


Hi, Richard. Although the 605 is internet capable, you have to buy, download and install a browser plugin in order for it to actually connect. Have you done that yet? If not, here is the link:

If you HAVE taken care of that already, I apologize for intruding as I am of no further help to you!
