Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

Netgear WPN824 wireless router

I've just setup my new wireless router and the signal is appalling and I can only connect at 54mbps instead of the max 108mbps. Also, the signal is constantly dropping out, even when I'm connecting wirelessley right next to the router. At my PC end I'm using a Netgear WPN111 wireless USB adapter so I would expect to get maximum performance. When connected directly to the router via an enthernet cable the performance is fine, and at 100mbps as expected. Can anyone help?

There is no reason why you shouldnt connect at 108 mpbs, so there are only a coulple of things you can try, the first is to change the channel that your router transmits on within the router settings, although this should automatically be done by the router when it comes up against any interference. Secondly try the adapter in a different usb port as USB 2.0 should be used and the port may not be recognised as a high speed port. Double check the router connection transmition speeds is set at 108 mbps; as it would also be able to transmit at a lower speed of 54 mbps so as to be backward compatable with 54 mbps adapters

My Netgear WPN824 wireless router stopped working. With the exception of the internet LED (which doesn't come on at all), all of the lights are blue and doing sort of a slow, pulsating blink. No m


The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.

My new/replacement modem: Motorola 2210-02, will not work with my old Netgear WPN824. I've tried everything I can think of, and I do not want to buy a new router. Any suggestions??? -Terru


If the modem and the router both want to be on 192.168.1.1, try setting the router to go to 192.168.2.1, or see if your ISP can provide you instructions for turning the router portion of the motorola off (Bridging the modem is the technical term). At that point they may be able to provide you with how to setup the router to work on your connection as the primary connection holder.

Router was losing internet connection frequently and now will not connect to internet. Checked cables and direct connect from modem to Mac is fine.


Did you try a reset? Also, if you are using WEP encryption on the N router, you are only getting 54MBPS rather than 108MBPS. Use WPA.

How do i change my router's nat type 3 to nat type 2 for my ps3.My router's name is Netgear Range Max wireless router WPN824.and my internet provider is Qwest DSL.


Instead of changing the NAT type, it is effective to forward ports on the router for your PS3. Perform the steps as mentioned in the below link:

It's impossible that the wireless router cannot detect your wireless adapter wg111t.

You try to test another one if still have a problem connecting with your wireless router.
If that router can see another wireless network available then maybe your Netgear wireless adapter have a problem incomplete installation or the wireless device is defective.

Netgear routers are notorious for this. The firmware on the unit just loses connection. In order to fix this, you have to make sure that you have the latest firmware.

There are several version of your unit. go to the following page and download the firmware and update it to the latest non-beta release.

My d-link WUA-2340 is only running on 54mbps


What router are you using?
Most routers sold until recently have been 802.11b/g (54mbps) routers, it must be 802.11b/g/n to run at 108mbps.
The adapter will self adjust to the older standard if it cannot detect if the faster standard is available.
