When I installed a wireless printer, my router reverted back to the orginal settings and now will not rocognize The name and wpa I had set up. Can you tell me how to find the WPA key I need. When I...


You need to log into the router's internal webpage and check the settings there. Open up a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, whatever) and type the following into the address bar at the top of the screen. 192.168.1.1 Press enter. It will then ask for a username and password. This should be "admin" for the username, and "password", for the password (no quotes). From here you can access the router's wireless settings including the network name (SSID) and password (passphrase). These settings will be under the setup category under wireless settings. They may also be changed from here, just make sure to scroll to the bottom and click apply after making any changes. My recommendation is to change the SSID to something totally different then it was before so that your wireless devices don't confuse your old setting with your new settings. Setup your wireless devices on the network again with the information listed on the wireless settings page and you should be good to go.

I need to reset or find my origional password. Please help. Thanks


If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234 - these are the default password for NetGear routers). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html

Hi, I have a netgear DG834G version 3 wireless router. I want to buy a wireless printer, will this router support one? If so, have you any opinions on the best buy? Thanks


any wireless printer should and will work with this modem-router as long as it's wireless settings are configured right, if you already have a computer connecting to this router wirelessly then that means the wireless functionality of your router is working. you just have to know the wireless settings of your router such as the SSID or the wireless network name, the type of wireless security and the wireless security key or encryption key.. once you have a wireless computer and it wireless feature is enabled it will automatically detect all networks name or SSIDs around the area, that includes your modem-router's and neighbors'.. when you try to connect to the SSID of your modem-router you will be asked for an encryption key or a password to be able to connect.. that will only happen if you have enabled a wireless security on your modem-router.

I have a wireless printer and cant find my SIDD number for my laptop


The SSID is the 'name' of your wireless network.

This can be found if you login to your routers web configuration and click wireless settings in the left hand pane.

This is where you also configure wireless security.
