Most routers like these reset simply by pulling out the power jack for a few seconds and then putting it back in, they don't come with a button.

And Yes you can have 2 laptops or more connect over the same wireless router at the same time, but u need to either give the laptops different IP Addresses or let the router give them IP's automatically using its DHCP service.
DHCP is better as its automatic but u need to configure the router to do this

How do I connect my netgear router to my desktop internet to use with my laptop. Followed instructions but when cable is disconnect from my laptop I can't connect to the internet


First Connect the Desktop with Netgear Router with the Ethernet cable. Open the Netgear GUI and configure a Wireless Network. Once its configured, switch On the WiFi switch from your Laptop and try to connect your Laptop. Make sure your laptop has an in-built Wifi adapter, if it doesn't then you would need to buy an USB based Wifi Adapter.

Also if you want to use the Internet with your Desktop PC without being connected with the Netgear Router then make sure it has Wireless connection capability.

CAN'T SEEM TO CONECT TO MY WPN824 NETGEAR ROUTER WIRELESSLY WORKS FINE IF I CONNECT STREIGHT INTO THE BACK WITHETHERNET BUT TOTALY GOES IF I DISCONECT IT ?????


For the computer/laptop to connect to the wireless router, the wireless card in the computer/laptop needs to be configured with the netgear's wireless settings eg. SSID and encryption etc.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.
For details on securing your wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.


Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Connect your broadband router to the netgear router, set your netgear router as "gateway" and put netgear's IP address as your DNS Server and Gateway in your laptop wifi connection.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.

Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.

Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
