Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Once disconnected, never to connect...again...

Hello,

I bought the Netgear Wgt624 (USB stick included) about 6 months ago. However ever since i disconneted it when the main PC of the house was off for repair I cannot seem to reconnect the router with my Wireless laptop ( Sony vaio VGN-NR11S/S). One would immediately propose. "Go back through the same procedure that got it working in the first place." Two factors won't allow this:

A. The PC monitor is buggered and it'sthe PC i initially set the router up upon.

B. When I put the damn disc(netgear set-up) in my laptop it never allows the set up which appeared on the PC appear. It only takes me through the USB sticks set up. (I should add that once the USB set up is complete it then says something to the effect of "press ok to begin hardware set up....nothing there after happens.)

So I am, to say the least, at my wits end with this so if anyone could help me out I would be most grateful. Thanks


Martin

First of all, PUT THE DISK IN THE DRAWER!

Now, plug an ETHERNET cable from one of the 4 ports on the router to you laptop's ETHERNET port and boot up the laptop.
If you have not done anything funny to the laptop, it should get a 192.168.1.x address with the gateway of 192.168.1.1 If it doesn't, you need to either set the network card to "obtain DHCP automatically" or you have no connectivity (evidenced by a 169.xx.xx.xx IP address).

Open up Internet Explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. You will get a screen asking for a USERNAME (admin) and PASSWORD (password), provided that you have not changed them or you wrote them down.

If you don't get any of this, start with the basics. Did you reset the router? Do you have cable company service? How did the laptop work before?

The ugly things that can happen is that you were supposed to clone the MAC address of the main computer that the cable company is looking for onto your router. A simple call to the cable company to "reset" the connection would fix that. If you reset the router, you need to login and follow the username and password, if required, instructions. If you lost your router password, likewise, you need to reset the router.

If none of this works, please post back and we'll try for more fixes.
Here's a copy of the quick setup for v4 of the router.

Hi, i have bought this netgear 108mbps wireless router WGT624, 2 weeeks ago, it was working good, but now suddenly it shows less mbps and when tried to restart it, now it not working, i mean it says in my...


I suggest try to check the netgear if it is connected to the internet. If the wirelss signal is good, it might be the internet connection is having some issue.
What you can try to do first is:
1.connect a computer to the netgear directly using an ethernet cable (RJ45)
2. click start then select run type cmd (It's a black screen)
3. type ipconfig/all then press enter on your keyboard
4. check the ip address it should be 192.168.X.X and the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on the router default ip address
5. on the black screen type ping yahoo.com then enter on the key board
*if there is a "reply from" message it means there is an internet connection going in the router and you need to configure the router. *If the message is "unable to detect" or "request timed out". You need to contact you Internet Service Provider for assistance.

Netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly


check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

to set upa network

http://lifehacker.com/software/wifi/geek-to-live-set-up-a-home-wireless-network-162754.php

there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)

here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.

Wireles conection problem


I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!

As you say that, you are able to go online with the modem, connect your modem- router and laptop witha cable and check if you are able to go online with the router wired first, if yes, then the w/ls settings has to be checked..open your w/ls network connection, remove your preferred wireless network and then try to reconnect again and check.. if you are not able to gon online wired with the router, disconnect power cables from modem- router , wait for 10 sec, and reconnect it , wait till all the lights come up and then reconnect, check if you are able to go online if not your router has to be reconfigured,,

plz check and revert back in case of any issues
