Drivers for Netgear WPN 824 V2

HI All,

Bought this little router over ebay and no drivers came with it...When I go to the netgear website all they have is upgrade drivers (.chk files) which I can't execute. So basically I have a modem and don't know how to install it without the software it should come with...any ideas?

Plugging it in direct to the computer is no good - I need the original drivers!

Re: Drivers for Netgear WPN 824 V2

First I would reset the Router to Factor Default

Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)

Release the button.

Wait for the router to reboot.


Set your computer IP address to

connect your computer to the router, open a webpage and enter you should get the username and password screen

Default username: admin    password: password

or could be 1234 but should be the first.

I'm trying to connect a netgear wpn 824 to a comcast router with windows 7

You are trying to set up the wireless router with the comcast modem, right ?
You can set up the router manually , without the disc.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the comcast modem only.
If you have the router working already then you just need to add a computer to the network.

I cannot find my wpa or wpn on my wireless netgear 824 v2

You shouldnt be able to find the WPA or WPN you would have set this when you first installed and setup your wireless netgear router. Your supposed to write it down before the installation completes I had one. There should be a saved file that Netgear saved during installation that states your password and other info.

Trying to hookup a wireless router to HP 1100

DSL uses PPOE, which may be different than what you had previously. Cable, for example, uses TCP/IP.
Re-set the router to defaults, and follow the instructions for PPOE, which should be in your manual or setup disk. Your ISP may have this info on their site, or you can get it at the Netgear site:
