SOURCE: Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi

After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)

  1. Start your network in this order:
    1. Turn the modem power off.
    2. Turn the router power off.
    3. Turn the modem power back on. Wait two minutes until the lights are stable.
    4. Turn the router power back on. Wait one minute until the lights are stable.
    5. Turn the computer power back on.
  2. Open an Internet browser, and type http://192.168.0.1. If a "Configuration Assistant" appears immediately, then do not follow the rest of these instructions. Follow the Configuration Assistant instructions, instead. Once you are finished, test your Internet connection by browing online, for example to http://kbserver.netgear.com.
  3. Type admin for User Name, and password for Password. (Older routers use 1234 as the password.)
  4. Click OK. This logs you into the router
  5. Click Setup Wizard on the top left corner, Select Yes for the Setup Wizard to detect the type of internet connection and click Next.
  6. The Setup Wizard will detect the type of Internet connection. DSL connections which require a login to connect to the internet will be detected as PPPoE. Click Next
  7. Configure your router with the username and password provided by your ISP and click Apply.
  8. The router will now save these settings. When complete, you can verify whether you are connected to the internet from the Router Status > Maintenance menu.
  9. Verify you have a valid IP address (not-blank / 0.0.0.0) on the Internet Port assigned by your ISP
  10. check if you are able to go online wired..
  11. to setup wireless
  12. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.
  13. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
  14. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  15. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  16. then check in your w/ls laptop, you would find your w/ls n/w name , try connect to it, enter your key , you would get connected

Netgear extender WN2000RPT


These are a huge pain and I would recommend returning it and buying a Devolo dLan Wireless extender since they can self-configure. If you insist on using the device you have, try these steps:

1. Reset Primary Router to have NO SECURITY (you should be automatically disconnected). Don\'t just reset to factory defaults! If your ISP requires specific router configuration to connect, resetting would erase all of those settings. Simply open the router config site and remove Wireless Security. The best way to know is to Google your Router and Model for configuration instructions.

2. Reset Extender to Factory Defaults.

3. Plug Extender in (if not already done)

4. Connect the PC to the ROUTER (which should have NO security at this time)

5. Confirm that you have connection to the Internet, as well as any network devices.

6. If #5 failed;
6.a. Make sure the old wireless connection (manage connections) has been deleted.
6.b. Close all Network Configuration windows (don\'t know if this matters, but sometimes the refreshed list refused to update with new config settings without this step).
6.b. Scan for available wireless connections.
6.c. Keep doing 6.a and 6.b until the correct wireless connection is shown. In my case, I kept getting "Cielo Secured" instead of "Cielo Unsecured" (or vice versa).
6.d. When the list shows the correct connection and security setting, select it to connect to the router.
6.e. Return to Step #5

7. Now you\'re back to essentially where you were to start, sans security. Close all Internet Explorer pages.

8. Open Wireless Connections again, and disconnect from the Primary Router, and connect to the Extender. If your wireless connection list is showing conflicting Extender and Security information, follow Step #6 until it\'s correct.

9. Open Internet Explorer. You should automatically be thrown into the Extenders Auto Configuration wizard. Follow the Wizard instructions until it\'s finished. When it shows the security settings, make sure that it\'s set to NONE.

10. Once the wizard is done, and you\'ve clicked on the "finished connecting" button in the Extender config, make sure you save the Bookmark as suggested - you\'ll need that later when you add security. Now, check your wireless status.

Hopefully it will show "Internet", not the pesky "Limited Connectivity". Open the Network & Sharing screen to verify there is no dreaded Red "X" between your Extender and the Internet. It may take a few minutes for the Internet status to update.

11. If Step #10 failed, start from Step #1 again, making sure that each device has been configured with NO SECURITY.

12. If Step #10 was successful, take a moment to step back and perform a 2 or 3 minute Chicken Dance in honor of the Computer Gods. .... Or, maybe not. wink.gif If nothing else, at this point you\'ve proven the Extender will work, even if unsecured.

13. Now, go through Steps 4 through 12. This time, though, configure the Router to the security level you wish.

14. Since we\'ve already configured the Extender once, use the Bookmark saved in Step #10 to re-open the Extender configuration site. Click on "Exit" when it opens if it wants to run the Wizard again. It may also guide you through updating the firmware if that\'s necessary. Let that finish before continuing.

15. MANUALLY configure the Extender by first selecting "Connect to Existing Network". If all things are set correctly, it will eventually ask you for the security key for your Router. Enter and continue.

16. This time, when it\'s done, it should have updated the configuration for BOTH devices using the Network Key you just entered. You should see an updated Extender security setting summary screen. Re-connect to the Extender (wait for the status to show Connected, then click on the button at the bottom. The Extender Status screen should be displayed.

17. Open the Network and Sharing screen to confirm there is still no Red "X" between your network and the Internet.

18. If Step #17 was successful, open Internet Explorer and confirm you can access the web. Yippee!!

19. If Step #17 failed, then the auto-config screwed up again. Click on "Wireless Settings", and manually configure the Extender to match what you set on the Router. Return to Step #17 to confirm that resolved the issue.

Fair warning, this will take a long time to accomplish. Netgear in my opinion is the worst brand on the market for wireless!

Iphone doesn't recognize router


Check the wireless settings of your router. Make sure that Wireless SSID broadcast is enabled on your router.
If other wireless devices are able to see the network and only Iphone is not able to see the network then it might be the issue with the Iphone.
You can try changing the wireless channel on your router. You need to open the setup page of the router using 192.168.1.1 and change the settings.

How to setup up for repeater mode


This particular Hawking device must be configured after it is connected to your LAN and powered up.

Before you can do this, you will need the software from Hawking. If your devices Serial Number begins with HEMCHWREN1 use the link below"

http://hawkingtech.com/products/downloadfile/114.html

If you have a Revision 1 device with a Serial Number begins with HEMCREN1R1 use this link:

http://hawkingtech.com/products/downloadfile/117.html

Once you have the software, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Connect the A/C power adapter to an
    electrical source, and then connect it to the
    'Power' socket of the Range Extender.
  2. Connect your Range Extender to a LAN
    port on the Router or AP that you would
    like to extend (repeat) the range on.
  3. Connect your PC to any of the LAN ports
    located on the back of your router/AP.
  4. Now run the appropriate program you obtained from the instructions in the beginning of the answer.

When the auto-load page appears, click the Setup Wizard option on the right and follow the Setup directions.

Scan for your Range Extender by clicking the 'Search' button. Once found, click the device to highlight it and click 'Next".

Choose a name for your Range Extender. You will use this name to identify and connect to your extended network. Optionally, you may change your login username and password. Click 'Next'.

At this point, the Setup Wizard should automatically obtain a new IP address for your Range Extender from the Router. Please wait for this IP to generate into the IP address field. Note the new IP address and click 'Next' to continue.

In the Search box, find the Wireless Network that you would like to extend. This Range Extender works best with other wireless-N networks, but also supports wireless-B and G networks as well. Select your preferred network and then click 'Next'.

For Security Settings, you must make sure that the Range Extender's security settings are identical to that of the Router/AP that is having the signal extended. If you do not know these settings please contact your network administrator.

At this point the Setup Summary displays all configured settings of the Range Extender. If the information displayed corresponds to your desired networks settings, you can go ahead and click 'SET' to apply the settings. The HWREN1 will automatically reboot. Please be patient.

I have Samsung blu ray and bought the adaptor for it to stream netflix through my wireless network. The two see each other, but when I enter the Wep Key or password, it doesn't connect. Any thoughts?


Try setting the allowable connection number in your router to at least 5. If you set a limit on your router for say 3 simultaneous connections the 4th device attempt to login will fail or just not recognize the router.

The WRT54GS router from Linksys is a wireless-G broadband router. This router lets the user access the Internet through a wireless connection as well as use it to share resources among computers on the network. The Linksys WRT54GS comes with a CD-ROM, which will run a Setup Wizard to walk you through configuring your router. Without the CD-ROM, configuration can be done through the router's web-based utility.
  1. p 1 Launch your web browser, then type 192.168.1.1 in the address field. Press "Enter". On the password screen, leave the user name blank. Use admin for the password. Click "OK".
  2. Step 2 Select the appropriate Internet setup settings in the Setup>Basic screen. Many of these settings are obtained from your Internet Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif Prvider (ISP). Other than the settings obtained from your ISP, the default settings should work for most network applications. Set the time zone in the "Time Zone" field. Click "Save Changes" before navigating away from this screen.
  3. Step 3 Select the appropriate wireless standard from the drop down menu in Setup>Basic Wireless Settings. If in doubt as to your wireless standard, leave the default selection at "Mixed'. This will work for most network applications. Type a name for the Wireless Networkmag-glass_10x10.gif Name. This name must be identical for all wireless devices on the network. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
  4. Step 4 Select the appropriate security method for your wireless network in the "Wireless>Wireless Securitymag-glass_10x10.gif" screen. If you do not wish to utilize security, leave the default setting of "Disabled". It is recommended to use some form of security for your wireless network. Whether you use WPA or WEP security, all devices on your wireless network must use the same encryption method and encryption key. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
  5. Step 5 Reboot the router so all the changes take effect.

Need to change IP address for Actiontec router for verizon fios


definately you will need to change the IP address.
But you can also change the IP address of the wireless extender.
so instead of changing the IP address of the router, you can change the IP address of the extender.
For that you will need to connect the computer to the Extender.
assign a static IP to the computer 192.168.0.10 and Default gateway 192.168.0.30. that will open the set up page of the extender.
change the IP addres of the extender to 192.168.1.30.
that will help you.

You may have to reconfigure the settings. Do you know how to access your online settings page for your router. If not you can go to the router manufacturers website and should find the information there. From the website see too if they offer free live chat support, granted your device is no longer under warranty, if it is you should be able to get free tech support, that's what they are there for, should you ever need help.Have you checked the Device Manager to make sure the router is enabled and/or recognized? You may need to uninstall and reinstall the router software. If you need more help get back with me. Hop this helps,
