My Netgear Router keeps kicking all wireless devices off the network

I've tried almost everything. I reset my router, added Mac filtering, assigned IP addresses to all my devices, check the wires, and still the problem persists. Basically it goes down like this. Ever so often the router decides it wants to boot all my wireless devices of the network and stay that way for a few seconds then reconnects. Then, and this is rare, the router itself seem to reset itself (the power light turns yellow and all the lights go out). When it disconnects it still show up on my list of available networks but I can't connect to it. Connection through a wired network seems to work fine because my Xbox and Desktop computer work fine wired. I even tried it on my laptop and it was ok. I'm wondering if it could be someone try to pry into my network but the MAC filtering should be taking care of that. Then again I'm not an expert so i could be wrong. All my laptop run on Windows 7 and are all up-to-date. Help would be greatly appreciated

SOURCE: exactly ASUS WL-500g, no internet connection

My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

Thanks for the suggestion. Oddly enough, after 2-3 days, the laptops were suddenly able to connect again. Strange.

SOURCE: XBOX 360 not connected to wireless connection on Linskys WAG54G2

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

there is a problem with your WEP key, means the password which is used to enter your router or network. simply delete the network from the network list and connect to the network again and insert the correct shared key.

4 Steps to Disable MAC Filtering on Netgear Router

The MAC filtering tool with a Netgear wireless router generates an access list based on the individual Media Access Control numbers that you connect. Because each computer-based networking device has a solve MAC address, the MAC filtering should stop unauthorized users from connecting to the Wi-Fi network. However, due to the instructions required to locate the networking device MAC address, you might get it onerous or inconvenient to add new systems to the network. In such situations, you should turn off MAC filtering and choose the other security approaches like WPA 2 encryption.

Note: - To get additional information, you can call on the Netgear customer service number and seek the help.

    1.Launch the web browser on your computer connected to the router through a wireless or wired connection. Input the following URL '' or '' in the address bar and press the 'Enter' key to show a login window.
    2.Input the 'admin' under the 'User Name' box. Input the password you chose when you configure the Netgear router. If you didn't choose a custom password, enter 'password' to sign in. Press the 'Enter' key to show the Netgear router's main menu.
    3.Click the 'Wireless Settings' button under the 'Advanced heading' tab on the left menu bar. Select to click on the 'Setup Access List' option near the end of the page. It directs you to the 'Wireless Card Access List' page.
    4.Remove the check mark of 'Turn Access Control On' box at the upper of the page. Click on the 'Apply' option to save and apply the changes.
    However, if you suspect that anyone has accessed your Wi-Fi password or you have any kinds of functional or technical issues in connecting to the Internet using your Netgear router, you should directly speak with the experts regarding your router glitches and get them resolved as quickly as possible. At such time, call at the certified Netgear customer support number available on the ContactforService directory site.

Net gear wireless router N150 router WNR1000

Looking for the NETGEAR WNR1000 default password?

You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad

f you've forgotten the WNR1000 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device,

the WNR1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR WNR1000, the default password is password. As with most passwords,

the WNR1000 default password is case sensitive

Be sure to change the default router password on your WNR1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in.

Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WNR1000 password
hope this helps

I installed my enGenis eub9707 mini wreless n usb adaper, and I have local connectivity but not internet. Not sure what to do. Help!

Your problem it seems to be a router problem. If on router side, you have enabled the access protection based on devices MAC addresses, then you must add the new adapter's MAC address into the router's MAC list with allowed devices that are able to reach the internet. For this, you must enter into your router admin settings via http and go to the security section and update the MAC list with allowed devices by adding your new adapter's MAC address. On my router, if I must permit to a new device to go to internet, I have two sections to update: "Wireless->MAC Filtering->Update allowed devices" and the second one is: " Security->MAC Filtering->Update allowed devices "
Good luck!

You may have used fixed IP addresses and then used MAC address filtering.
I recommend you let the Netgear issues IP address (DHCP) and use PA or WPA2 encryption plus MAC address filtering.

How can i turn mac filter off n netgear router

You need to go into the Netgear router setup configuration - then the wireless configuration - scroll down to MAC address filtering and click on disable.
Open the browser and enter then enter the login and password.
If you have forgotten these then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by pressing the reset botton on the back of the router for several seconds until the LEDs light flash.
The default login = admin and the PW = password
