Yes, I confirm it is true. Just changed IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 and everything works fine.

The bandwith is shared between devices, making them slower. DHCP provides an IP and is dynamic, making it easy to add devices, A static IP means you have to assign and keep track of the IP's. Most people use DHCP.

SOURCE: Cannot access the internet after installing new NetGear router.

you need to change the IP address of the router. Plug just the router into the computer. Open Internet Explorer and go to 192.168.1.1. user: admin password:password. On the main page it allows you to change the LAN IP. Make it 192.168.2.1. Now unplug everything and rewire it correctly. This should fix the issue. Verizon uses 192.168.1.1 for the modem well so does Netgear and this causes the network to not function. So changing the IP of the router should fix this issue and has worked for me many times that I have done that set up.

SOURCE: Use Netgear WGR614 as an access point

Right, it won't work. The 614 doesn't have the software to make it into a BRIDGE or AP CLIENT. It can only be made into an Access Point, meaning it needs a wired connection INTO it.

A TP-Link http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_spe.asp?id=36 WA501G costs under $40 and gives you the ability to go from wireless to wired. It takes about 15 minutes to set up, and will plug into your DVR's ethernet port to extend your wireless network. It's programmed by setting the mode, AP, CLIENT, BRIDGE, etc. We use them in areas where we want to extend a wireless signal for distances like across parking lots, but it also will work across a room or two.

There are also wired ethernet extenders that use house wiring like the Netgear XE-102, about $80, that look like two wall transformers with ethernet jacks. You plug one into the router/switch and the other into the DVR.

Configuration of NETGEAR router as Access Point:

The below steps illustrates the usage of router's like WGR614, WGT624, WPN824 as an access point to extend the wireless network in your location. The only required setup is that you should have a DHCP server running on your network ( be it your modem or a different router).

1. Connect a computer directly to NETGEAR router on any of the four LAN ports.
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on wireless settings in the left hand side menu Under Setup.
5. Change the network name SSID to some other name.
6. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.
7. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic' and Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.
9. Apply the settings.

Click on LAN IP setup from the left menu.

1. Change the IP address of the router from 192.168.1.1 to a free IP of your existing DHCP network.
2. Also disable the DHCP of the router by unchecking the box for 'Use router as DHCP Server'.
3. Click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.
4. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, turn off the router and restart the computer.

Now, connect the two router in the following way:

1.Connect Ethernet cable from the Lan port of the existing router/modem to the Lan port of the NETGEAR router.
2. Powercycle both the routers and your computer
3. You may connect other computers' directly to NETGEAR router or wirelessly as per your requirement.

To Configure the Router with Internet Access

Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:

  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point's DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network

I am trying to install a Netgear router after my switch. I end up having no internet on some of the computers connected to the hub and none on the router. If I configure the router as a dhcp client...


You'll want to configure your router as a dhcp server. Connect the switch to your router's lan port. Connect the remaining devices to a port on the switch. Your wireless access point should have it's dhcp server disabled. You can only have one dhcp server per network. The wireless can get it's address from the router's dhcp and the wireless client devices will get their ip address from the router, as well. If your wireless access point is a router with a wan/broadband port and some switch ports you will want to make sure that you are connecting to your Asus switch via one of the switch ports.
Be sure that your client devices are configured to get their ip address via dhcp and you should be surfing the interweb in no time flat.

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

Netgear FWG114P Print Sever not functioning on upper level of LAN


if you set your dynalink's dhcp list up to a certain number (example: .1-.99). connect cat5 cable from dynalink lan port, into print server lan port. make sure print server can be setup as access point. if so, turn access point setting to on. make print server static ip address the next number outside of dhcp range (example: .100).

.100 ip address is the port number you should then be printing to, using a tcp/ip port.

if print server can be set up this way, then it now becomes wireless access point for all wireless devices. i am assuming, since you didn't mention it, that the dynalink is NOT wireless. if it is, the the print server just becomes another device on your existig network, taking the place of the network adapter the printer doesn't have. just set it up the same way you would set up another workstation on the network. except, make it static.

Add device to my network


You may be able to log into the access point from a wireless connection, or set your computer to a 192.168.2.x (maybe 10 or higher) and turn off the DHCP of the AP, then change the DHCP of the AP to something fixed in your 192.168.1.x address range like 192.168.1.251 or similar.

Now, plug in the AP to the WGR. It can now be accessed via 192.168.1.251 or whatever you gave it, and it will let the Netgear WGR give out 192.168.1.x addresses through the WAP.

Please provide feedback and let me know if it worked for you. In your spare time, be sure to password protect the WAP away from the default password. Post back if you have any problems and please provide the name of the Access Point so I have an idea what you used. We use TP Links here.

Netgear WG602 wireless router,


Hi, Assuming that the WG602 is fully operational, when you did a hard reset, the router reverted to its original factory setting as you posted. The default pre-configuration: act as a DHCP client; if the WG602 does not find a DHCP server on the Ethernet LAN, it defaults to this IP configuration: DHCP Client - Enable IP Address ? 192.168.0.227 IP Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0 Gateway ? 0.0.0.0 Your PC need to be connected via a LAN cable to one of the Ethernet ports of the AP/Router to be able to configure it again to your desired network settings. Further it is necessary likewise to manually configure the connected PC's networking configuration to match the router. Manually configure your PC's IP Address to 192.168.0.228, Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0, Gateway - 192.168.0.227. You can now try configuring the router through its web interface (192.168.0.227). This is better explained in the user's manual available at the Netgear site ( Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
