Question about NetGear Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I got a Netgear WNCE2001 today. My router is a Verizon router. (The one with the WPS button on the front.) The security password is in WEP. When I try to connect it with WPS, the light on the WNCE2001 just keeps blinking green and yellow. When I push the WPS button on my router, it does nothing. When I try to hook it up with GUI, I get to the part where it says connecting to router, then it says can't connect at around 80%. Can you guys help me?

2. Select a radio button.

button on the rear panel of the Internet adapter.
• PIN Number. Select the radio button and a PIN displays.
The Internet adapter tries to join the wireless network for 2 minutes if you are using Push
'N' Connect, or 4 minutes if you are using a PIN.
3. Go to the router.
• If you are using Push 'N' Connect, press the router's WPS button.
• If you are using a PIN, log in to the router and type the PIN from your Internet adapter
in its WPS screen.
4. Go back to the computer that is connected to the Internet adapter, and make sure that you
are connected to the wireless network.
• When WPS is running, the WLAN LED blinks, alternating between green and amber.
• If the computer does not to connect with WPS, the WLAN LED is solid red for 5
seconds.
• If the computer does connect using WPS, the WLAN LED is solid green for 5 seconds
Then the WLAN LED returns to indicating a wireless signal.

SOURCE: Can Not connect to NetGear MR814 v2 Router with Acer Extensa 4420

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.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
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.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

Why did the router ID change when I linked it via the Wps button to the DSTV wifi gadget ?


Here's and excerpt from the Netgear WNR2000 user manual explaining that this is normal behavior for Netgear routers that support WPS..:
  • Keep Existing Wireless Settings. This check box is automatically selected after WPS is enabled to prevent unwanted settings changes, and is also selected if you have already specified wireless security settings or your SSID without using WPS. When this check box is not selected, adding a new wireless client using the push button or the Add WPS Client screen (see "Push Button Configuration" on page 2-14) changes the router's SSID and security passphrase. You might need to clear it if you are using certain registrars, such as for a Windows Vista PC, to configure the router through WPS.
Even if your router is not a WNR2000, it is likely that the configuration interface pretty much the same so you might be helped by looking at Chapter 2 page 17 in the WNR2000 manual here..:
Or else, go to Netgear support (NETGEAR Support Welcome), select Wi-Fi routers and download/display the user manual pdf and search it for "disable router's pin" or "keep existing wireless settings" and verify/change the setting so the router doesn't make changes when you use the WPS button.

Where is the WPS button on a netgear wireless router?


Not all routers have such a button.
Follow the instructions that came with the printer to "manually" select your wireless network, and to enter the password for your network.

I have a net gear wnr 2000 trying to hook up a wn2000rpt using the wps button and it's not workin


try it first w/o encryption to see if it will connect.

also note that SOME wireless WPS-capable equipment documentation says that it will only work with WEP-level encryption; so read your doc's and be informed. WEP can be broken in about 30-seconds with today's technology.....fyi

Machine does not appear to have WPS button, where is it.


Some wireless routers will have a WPS button. Printers do not have one. As you set up a printer to connect to your wireless network, you press the WPS button on the router when prompted by the setup program.

If your router has a WPS button, it will usually be on the back of the router. However, on the Netgeat WNR3500-100NAS, the button is on the bottom front of the router. If your router doesn't have a WPS button, log into the router's administrator page. (In your browser, type in http:// + the I.P. address of your router. (It will often be 192.168.1.1 .) Enter the administrator name and password. (admin is the common administrator account name). Then go to the Wi-fi page, there will be a way to start the WPS signal. (This assumes you are using a security protocol that is compatible with the WPS setting. WPA/WPA2 are compatible; WEP isn't (if I recall correctly).) Most router manufacturers have a default administrator password. I strongly recommend changing from the default passwords; they are available in any manual.
The alternative is to type in the name of your wireless network and its security password during the printer setup.
Please add a comment with your specific router make and model. I will be glad to tell you where on the unit a WPS button is, if one is present. I can also give you information on the default administrator account and password.

the only security methods supported on your N300 Router are WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK. The WEP security (you mention) is not supported by WPS. Go back into your settings and choose WPA or WPA2.

Well it seems to be an issue with the security setup on the wireless router. Please perform the below task to configure the settings on the router:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on a computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'. Set the 'Authentication Type' as automatic. Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
6. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number. Apply the settings.

Please connect your TV to the network using the password as set above.

No wps button on DG834G - trying to connect a sony s760 BDP


WPS is one of the choices in wireless security. Log on to your router (192.168.1.1), click on Wireless, and in the Security section you can choose WEP and set up the appropriate password.

How do I secure the network


The securing process in your wireless router is set by choosing the "Wireless Settings" (with my Netgear, anyway) screen. The bottom portion of the screen lets you set various things re. security, like WEP, WPS-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (AES), and on. Different levels of security demand different types of passwords as well.
