Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

1 Answer

Can only access internet if computer connected to router is on

The house I just moved into installed the NetGear RangeMax WPN824 router to set-up wireless access throughout the house (before I moved in, only one person was online, so she just used her Comcast ethernet connection). So, we connected the router to her computer and modem, but something isn't quite right... The problem is that my computer can *always* connect to the router, but it can *only* connect to the internet if her computer (the computer that is directly connected to the router) is on.

I'm sure there is a way to keep the wireless connection active all the time, regardless of whether or not her computer is on, but I don't know how to make that happen.

Is this just a simple issue of us needing to change the settings somewhere? Neither of us is very techy...

Thanks for any help!!

Reset the router to factory default and then set it up again. See page 7-7 (75 in the reader) in this user manual to reset the router.

You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

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.

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.

There is a MANUEL way to get the router working. Find somebody that would know the login IP Address of the router (could be 192.168.1.1) and then you can set it up from within your Internet browser. Quite a tricky router to set up though but it can be done

Netgear Firewall


with the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.

whats the ip address of the 3rd pc?

Thanks,
Brad
