Question about NetGear WG602 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

2 Answers

Netgear WG602 wireless router, Connection Local only !

Same Router new problem!

 

I purchased a new laptop that runs on Vista - Home Premium. When I try to connect to the Access Point, I am able to connect, but the connection is always 'Local" only. i.e. internet does not get connected.

I tried resetting the cable modem (motorola), unplugging the power.

I tried doing that with the wireless router as well.

Tried to diaganose the problem thru Vista and tried to get new IP addresses.

i also tried by putting an IP address --ipv4 as

192.168.0.228, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.0.227

 

but nothing seems to work. I get connected but cannot access internet. When i plug in the lan cable directly thru ethernet access, it works fine.

 

my wirless router DHCP setting is enabled

 

pls advise.

What I think is you unplgged them at the wrong times.

Do this:
(in this order)

  1. Turn off the router.
  2. Turn off the modem.
  3. take out all the Ethernet cords from the router, EXCEPT the one coming from the modem
  4. Now turn the modem on.
  5. Wait for the lights, then wait about another minute for it to settle.
  6. Turn on the router, make sure the Internet,Lan,Wlan,etc lights are on and functional if it doesn't display a light let me know.
  7. Now depending on what your wireless network (SSID) is called try to connect to it. Go to Start>Network>Click Network And Sharing Center at the top>on the left select Manage Wireless Networks>now click add, if your network is already on the list shown select it and click remove otherwise click "Add" click "add network in reange of this computer" select your network name and click connect.
Now tell me the errors, like if it says connection limited,etc...


Thanks,
Cam

Connect your broadband router to the netgear router, set your netgear router as "gateway" and put netgear's IP address as your DNS Server and Gateway in your laptop wifi connection.

The router protocols (on air and ethernet connection) are independant of the operating system. Vista 64 bit will work with the router.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

do factory reset of configuration settings then log in with the routers default credentials. then change settings to your liking with one exception: DO NOT USE WEP!!!!! At a minimum use WPA 1 personal (with MAC filtering if you know how.) WEP can be hacked in less than 5 minutes.

Netgear WG602 wireless router,


Hi, Assuming that the WG602 is fully operational, when you did a hard reset, the router reverted to its original factory setting as you posted. The default pre-configuration: act as a DHCP client; if the WG602 does not find a DHCP server on the Ethernet LAN, it defaults to this IP configuration: DHCP Client - Enable IP Address ? 192.168.0.227 IP Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0 Gateway ? 0.0.0.0 Your PC need to be connected via a LAN cable to one of the Ethernet ports of the AP/Router to be able to configure it again to your desired network settings. Further it is necessary likewise to manually configure the connected PC's networking configuration to match the router. Manually configure your PC's IP Address to 192.168.0.228, Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0, Gateway - 192.168.0.227. You can now try configuring the router through its web interface (192.168.0.227). This is better explained in the user's manual available at the Netgear site ( Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
