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!

I cannot connect to my belkin connect n150 router after enabling it as an access point. Green light shows up on router and wireless network shows up but no connection when clicked. I cant connect via


Pretty sure you have to have at least one router in gateway mode to connect to the internet. An AP allows wireless devices to connect to a wired segment. The same as a router in gateway mode. AP mode has the benefit of extending a networks wireless range. If this is your only device leave it in gateway mode.

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.

It is possible to configure N1 Vision Router as a Range Booster? And if "yes" how i can?


Yes you can. Here is how to do it:
  1. You have to set your Router toward the edge of your network's current range limit
  2. Then you have to install and navigate to the Admin Panel of the Router (if already installed, skip the installations option). Use a browser. IP Address would be http://192.168.0.1.
  3. Log in.
  4. Click on the "LAN Settings" (Below "LAN Setup"). Now you have to have the Number of Devices which you are going to connect to the Network.
  5. Click inside the text box for the wireless router's IP address at the center of the screen. Delete the last number in the IP address. You have to Type in a number that is AT LEAST Number of Devices + 1. Lets say you are gonna connect 50 Devices. Then the Number = 51.
  6. Now go to "DHCP Settings". Click on the option button "Turn Off".
  7. Click on "DNS" below the "Internet WAN" title. Click on the "Disable Forwarding" option button.
  8. Click on "Security" and Scroll down until you see "Port Forwarding". Remove each IP in the Text boxes. Find the option button "Gateway" and Click on it.
  9. Click on the "Application Gateway" underneath the "Firewall". Click on the box which has the Label "Disable Firewall".
  10. Click Apply and Ok.
  11. Log off.
  • Make sure you have a Strong Password for the Router. As you can see the Security is bit not tighten.
Generally the N standard rotuer do not require any Range Extender s. However if you are trying to use Range Extender with N router. You need to use G or B/G mode mixed, also you have to change the channel from Auto (as in Linksys Router,not sure about Belkin Router) 6 or 11, So that the Wireless connection can detect the Range Extender.
If you are facing any difficulties, please let me know. It was a pleasure to assist you!
If the solution helped you to overcome the issue, please rate the answer with a testimonial.

Got a DWL-G710 wireless extender that will not


First I would try a reset, as this extender should would with your default settings of your network.
I would suggest just giving your router a reset. Here are the procedures for your particular router:
Reset Procedure
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

make sure to setup your wireless security again and make sure to set an admin password on your router after the restart.

I have wrt160n router, when i tried to add my laptop(xp) it doesnt allow. msg says, "router has been set up but can not detect internet connection" pls help.


Likely you need to run the connection wizard in order to regain your connection. Also when using more than one PC with a router, some ISP's only allow one pc to be connected per account. To fix this problem, use the clone mac address feature in the router to clone the mac of the original PC that was connected, the router will then behave as that PC and split the connection by routing to any other pc connected using a single mac address. When you add a second PC because the provider only allows one pc per account - it then loses connection. The router fools the ISP by cloning the original mac.
