Question about NetGear WNDR3400 N600 Wireless Dual Band Router (WNDR3400100NAS)

1 Answer

Have had the N600 WNDR3400v2 installed for over a month and all worked well until yesterday. I have an internet connection and the router info says all is good, i cannot get it to connect. I've tried unplugging and plugging back in, deleting the install and reinstalling and nothing seems to work. I have noticed though that when i initially installed, the blue light on the side panel use to blink but now it stays a solid lit blue. I do not know if the issue is with the router or the cable company and in either case, do not know how to fix.

The blue light indicates the wireless network is working, it is just that nothing is connecting through it.

The internet icon should be solid green or blinking green which shows it is connected to the Internet, if not connect your ISP.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.

How do I reset my password to factory settings?


The reset procedure of a router, is most of the time printed on the underside of the router. Most of the time you have to push a button for a certain time, or unplug it form the power for at least one minute or so. Page 120 of the manual says:

25666674-430tztikrat04csse0ovhla5-5-0.png The complete manual you find here:

http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WNDR3400V2/WNDR3400v2_UM_23JAN2013.pdf
On page 120 you also see what settings are in the router. But perhaps you need it, to setup everything from scratch.

N600 error 651


This is not a router, it is a range extender. It does not work without a router connected to the internet.
651 is just a timeout, as it cannot get an internet connection.

Look at the router and find out why the range extender does not work.
Does the router work on the internet, try wirelessly and by directly connecting a cable into the LAN port.

If the wireless connects to the internet then the router is fine. Look at re setting the connection on the PC. You might want to check for an update on the driver for your network interface card first.

My new HP desktop is asking for PIN of wireless router. My router is Netgear N600 WNDR3400v2. All I can find is two MAC #'s and the S/N. Where is the PIN?


This router does not use any type of PIN. You may be confused as the HP wireless networking setup may be asking for the "password", or WPA2 key that secures the wireless network. This must be entered before the router will accept the client and assign it a network IP address. The WPA2 key is stored in the router under the Wireless Settings Option. Unfortunately, if you don't know the key, going there won't help you as the key is not visible.

Never buy Netgear. They design product so it won't work unless you pay more for technical support. They told me the technicians during the 90 day warranty are not good enough to fix problems, so you can't get solution until warranty runs out and you have to pay extra!
