Can't set up security for Netgear 824

I'm not able to set up the security on the Netgear 824 even though I was able to get the wifi working quickly. The instructions say "The wireless router provides highly effective security features, which are covered in detail in the full reference manual that is available from a link on the CD as well as a link in the main menu of your router." I can't find this. Is it because I'm a Mac user?

    Much thanks for the quick reply. It worked. However, I'm now having trouble getting my other computers (also Macs) to log on. The airport shows that I'm connected yet I can't open any URL. I've posted my problem on a separate FixYa posting as well.

    Thanks, NC, especially for offering your help even if you're not a regular mac user. 
    I'm just not convinced that this Netgear is that mac friendly and much improvement from my old Belkin router. I went to the URL recommended and it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for. 
    I greatly appreciate your help.

LOL you bought it, you get to figure out how it works.

I used a MAC for a day, and the owner had to tell me how everything works. If you can get to the internet, I imagine you can go to www.routerlogin.com and get access to the Netgear. The Wireless Settings tab on my Netgear brings up text sensitive help on making security and wireless work.

    Sigh, you're gonna make me look stupid in an international forum aren't you :-)



    Is an Airport the wireless device for a MAC or is it a wireless access point? Can you log into it by connecting to it with a network cable? In networkland, we configure a WAP by it's initial fixted address that sometimes happens to be the same (192.168.1.1) as the Netgear router default address. In that case, we log into the AP via a seperate cable and change its address to something else, like 192.168.1.251.



    When you log into the aforementioned www.routerlogin.com, one of the tabs is attached devices. You can see the ip and the "MAC" addresses of the attached devices. Start with just the computer that works, link to the Netgear, and click attached devices. Then plug in the Airport and see if the MAC address shows up and gives an IP address. You may have to configure the Airport. I don't exactly know how to do that, but the internet was my friend :-)

    http://www.macwireless.com/downloads/ins...

    shows how to access MAC's TCP IP stuff. Perhaps you can use it to configure your airport. If you pick 192.168.1.5, make sure that your Netgear gives out IP addresses starting at 51. Also, see if you can't make the Airport NOT give out DHCP addresses. Now all of your addresses will be given out in the Netgear and you can always get to it via the routerlogin.

How do i change the security connection for my netgear wifi


You don't have to change the security on the router, you have to change the tablet set-up.

Touch this icon ( the big orange E) on home screen to launch the Tabeo support application to make changes. This includes parental control authorisation.

See manual

I connected my vizio 55 inch wireless enabled tv to a new Netgear N600 router, previously I had an older version of a router, now I cannot setup to connect to the new router


I to just upgraded to the Netgear N600 router. No problem with my iMac or 3 Roku boxes in three different rooms, but would not connect to my 22inch Vizio WiFi in the kitchen even though it could see the signal. After 3 days looking on the net, I gave the guest setup on the router a try. It worked! the Vizio sees both signals. Just select the Netgear "guest" and enter the password you set it up with. Works like a charm.

My phone does not connect to the wifi from the netgear mr8142v2 but this phone has connected to 5 other wifi networks. How do I get this to work?


Hi!

If it was working before, you only need to clear or delete the current wifi profile on your phone for the netgear router and just create a new wifi profile. Make sure to enter the corrent Wireless Settings specially the Security Key. It is case sensitive, sometimes that's the only problem why you cannot connect. You are typing an incorrect network key. You can also try to change the channel that the netgear is using. Power cycle can help you also. Just unplug the power on the back of your router for 30 seconds then try again.

How to set a security cod for wifi


This is a Quick and easy fix!
  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.

    Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  4. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
  5. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  6. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings.

How to set a password for my wifi netgear wireless-G Router?


Connect the router ot the machine via the ethernet cable and open up a web page in the address bar type in the ip address of the router typically 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 once in there should be a security section to make the router secure wep wpa or wpa2.

Wpa2 would be my recommendation as it is the most secure.

I have a Netgear router -but I dont have the same computer that I used to set up Internet connection. My router works but is not secure


the computer you have should make no difference to how the router works.
If your wifi connection is insecure you will need to login to it and add the security under the advanced/wireless (wifi) options and add a password.
if you connect to the router with a cable then just turn off (disable) the wifi, you don't need to set up the security.

Netgear 824, security = intermittent WiFi connectivity


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:
