Hello bp7291,

We can bypass using the CD installation.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.
b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
c. Click on the Advanced tab.
d. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
e. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network. Please select your network and click on Connect. It will ask you for the network key.
f. Please type in the network key and then confirm it. Network key is the password you type on the key 1 of the wireless settings of the router.

I am starting to install Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router WPN824 v2 I reset to factory settings. I have windows XP professional. The unit is powered, and connected to the internet. what is the next step?...


Once you have your router connected to your Modem, connect your computer to any open port on the router, and with your Web Browser, go to http://192.168.1.1 and log in to the router. Login is (default) login name is admin and default password is just a blank field. Once you have logged in to your router, go through setting up things like IP address (leave at "Get Dynamically from ISP". Same with DNS server --- "Get automatically from ISP". MAC address should be already filled in. Click Apply. You should be good to go for wired router use, and if you want to use it wirelessly then you need to click "Wireless Settings", pick your SSID (Name of your network) and any security you choose. After this you ought to be set for wireless access as well.

Trying to install my Netgear Router to my PC and 2 playstations dont have the install CD anymore tho so cant set up easily how do I set it up without the CD MOdel WPN824 V2


You set the router up by using the web browser on your PC. (No CD needed).
The router has its own web server at address 192.168.0.1 or 092.168.1.1 (you don't need the www.)
It will ask for the log in and password which are (if they haven't been changed) admin and password.
Once past that you go top the set-up page and enter the info provided by your ISP (normally in a letter but sometimes it comes by text message to your mobile phone) and generally that is that.
Connect your playstations and the job should be done. (I don't use p[laystations so I don't know if they need anything special.)

Lost setup DC


The router is compatible with any operating system. You don't need to use the CD that came with it to setup the internet connection. Just open the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.2.1 on your browser. There you can see the automatic setup.
