Uncheck the "disable SPI firewall" option in the wireless settings for the router.

SOURCE: Connecting VPN using Netgear 624

This is no small undertaking. You will first have to decide if you are going to use software or hardware vpn. Software vpn is free and only requires that you install it (the client) on whatever remote system you are using to connect to the 624. I can say that you want to have your internet connection point (DSL modem or Cable modem) set to "bridge" mode. This will pass through all traffic to the netgear directly. Some (like a speedstream 5200 DSL modem) allow this or they have a DMZ feature which will accomplish the same. Either way you want to ensure ALL ports and all traffic are getting to the netgear. Once that is done you simple create a string at both ends that match for your security phrase and an authentication that matches and you should be good. It's really a lot more than what could be provided here. (Several lengthy documents worth) but I can provide you with a useful link that will give you an a-z about VPN and has specific walkthroughs for Netgear users only. http://www.vpncasestudy.com/index.html Hope this helps a little.

I get error 812 with the netgear wgt624v4


Error 812 is a dial up VPN error. If your not using a dial up Vpn network open control panel on your computer. Make sure you are in classic view, should be an option at top left of control panel to switch to classic view if you are not. Find internet options, click connections at top. The connections in the window are dial up connection, if you wish to use the netgear router its best to delete this click on each one in turn and remove on the right. When all are gone try and connect with netgear again. Your computer appears to be trying to use dial up and not your wireless router.

Hope this helps, any problems get back to me.

I am using this adapter to connect to my WGT624v3 router. Both netgear. My computer is connected to my xbox360 and sharing its connection with the console. I can share the internet for xbox live, but when...


If you are using a wireless connection you could have a weak signal, move the router or the XBox to get a stronger signal.
You could be getting an interference with other wireless routers/access points in your area. Check the broadcast channels of the various routers/access points in your area and select a channel that is not being used for your wireless router.

Applying QoS to WNDR3300


You may stop what you are doing right now. Nothing you do will work regarding QOS and your Avaya IP phone?

Is this a hardware VPN, or a VPN remote phone? (vpn client on the phone)

Depending on what system you are connected to, an IP Office or a communication manager, there might be settings to do, but none of them are qos.

QOS is inserted on the LAN, once the packets leave the LAN and hit the open internet, there is no QOS.

You might be able to change the compression algorithm the phone is using, which might help.

How do I configure site to site VPN on a Netgear Router?


Well the VPN connection would have to be setup on your PC at home or where ever you are... VPN will pass-through if your router allows that... Also the VPN connection would have to be accepted by the remote server or computer that you are trying to VPN into

Wireless speed


The answer to this is yes and no.

Wireless speeds are not up to gigabit on any router that I know of. You may be able to have a wired Gigabit connection on a wireless router, but not wireless. But this would not speed up your Internet browsing (wireless or not).

A new router would probably improve your Internet browsing speed, but perhaps not for the reason you may think.

1, Your line speed has probably increased since you purchased your current router and a new router would probably deal with it better.
2, You may be able to put a new wireless card in your PC that would allow you to use G or some of the other faster wireless connection methods.

Ultimately your Internet browsing speed is governed by the line speed, the contention in your area, the general speed of the Internet. Changing your router will just help make your internal network traffic more efficient.

Here is a Good Guide from Microsoft that I would follow BEFORE spending any money.

http://tech.msn.com/howto/articlepcw.aspx?cp-documentid=6555722

Basically what it says is 1, ensure you have a clean connection to the Internet, 2, update all your firmware so that every thing is as good as it can be.

Read the article, do what it says and then consider if you need to upgrade the router. At the end of the day your Internet speed will never be better than the speed that you have paid for. If you pay for 2Mb and http://www.speedtest.net says you are getting 1.9Mb then you are doing well and the best you can improve things is by .1Mb. Maybe you need to get a faster connection.

If you pay for 2Mb and you are only getting 1Mb (and you have done all the recomendations) Maybe you need a new router.

Hope this helps

Netgear Wireless Router 108 MBPS


It's not the same. Your Netgear router version is V1. I did not find any downloadable upgrades either - I have the same router. My connection problem turned out to be between my DSL modem (AT&T), router and PC. What I needed to do was, under "Basic Settings," click no where it asks if your service requires login, then at the bottom of the tab, click the option to acquire the MAC address directly from the wired (desktop) computer. ("this computer" on the tab) Once I had done that, the router enable the modem correctly and I could use the desktop and the wireless access for my laptop. Frustrating, because if you have AT&T as your service provider, Netgear's instructions tell you to do the exact opposite.

No wireless


Hello Chantalallie

Is the laptop able to connect to the Internet wirelessly over other networks? (say at a coffee shop or Internet cafe, etc.)

(We want to pin down whether or not the issue is w/ your laptop or w/ the router.)

If the laptop is not functioning wirelessly at all now, make sure that the wireless radio button on your laptop has not been inadvertently placed in the OFF position. Where that button is located varies w/ ea. laptop. If you're not familiar w/ where it is, look closely along the sides and front of your laptop and above the keyboard (below the monitor).

Still on the assumption that your laptop's wireless radio is not working:
(A) Click on START
(B) Click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS
You should see a connection called "Wireless" or something similar.
(C) Check to see if that connection is DISABLED.
(D) If it is, right click on it and choose ENABLE

OK, now we'll await your answers before proceeding as doing so now would necessitate making assumptions regarding your equipment, operating system, etc. that may not be correct.


Thank you,
BJ
