Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

1 Answer

Power light keeps blinking and cannot log into WPN824 router

I did a firmware upgrade on my V3 and immediately afterwards, the system no longer connected to internet. I'm figuring, the upgrade didn't take but now I cannot access the router to attempt the upgrade again. Reseting doesn't help. Is there a recovery utility or something for this router??

Appreciate any help, Bob

    ok, the hard reset isn't doing any good. It's like the router isn't recognizing the reset.

    How do I go about setting up a "static" ip for the ping test??

Firmware upgrade is very important. You have to make sure that you were able to do it properly.

You have to do a hard reset on the router. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is turned on. Try to see if your computer is able to get a valid IP address. If not, set up a static IP address on the computer and see if you can ping the router, if not then the router has gone bad.

You have to replace it.

    Control Panel>Network Connections>Right click local area connection then click properties>Look for internet protocol TCP/IP>Double click Internet Protocol TCP/IP then choose Use static IP.



    Note: If the default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1 (depending on the type of router that you have).



    Set the IP address to 192.168.1.100, Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.1.1. Click OK all the way out.



    Next:

    Go to the command prompt by clicking on Start then click Run. On the Run command box, type cmd. You will see a black box with a blinking cursor.



    Type the following: ping 192.168.1.1.



    If you will not get 4 replies then it means to say that your router is dead. If you will get a reply saying ping statistics, packets sent 4, received 4, lost 0 - then you can still update the firmware of the router using the firmware upgrade utility of the router. You can try to access the router page and see if it is still working, if not then use the firmware utility if there's any.

No lights on except power light.


The firmware has been messed up. DDWRT might be incompatible with your router. I would highly recommend to reload the factory firmware or the latest firmware from Netgear's website. Loading 3rd party firmware will void the warranty of your device.

Power indicator keep on blinking


hello!

blinking power light after firmware upgrade sometimes indicates that the upgrade is not sucessful or the firmware that you load is incorrect.

-- try to reset the router for 30secs and check if the power light is still blinking
-- if its still blinking check your pc's ip address while connected to the router
-- if the ip address of your pc is invalid (169.x.x.x.) turn to manually assign static ip address to your computer and check if you can ping your routers ip address
-- if you can ping the routers ip address, upload the correct firmware to your router
-- if you cant ping your routers ip address still, reset the router again and try to ping the routers ip address once again
-- try to change port and cables
-- if still unable to ping the routers ip address, chances are that the router might be defective now

Firmware Upgrade Failed


Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.

Reset


You can reset your Netgear router/wireless wpn824 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless wpn824 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear wpn824 router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the wpn824 router has been reset.
