Question about NetGear WG602 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

I cant get to the gatway interface

I have used Netgear WG602v3 for a long time with only minor issue (wasnt able to set WEP)

Yesterday I disconnected it for a minute and now I am not able to see it at all or connect to it.

I have a router that I connect the Netgear to but it does not show on the list of devices of the routers interface.

The wireless is not working but the ethernet symbol on the netgear is switching from orange to green. The wireless symbol light is off.

I am trying to get to the NetGear gateway interface but it seems the router doesnt think it is connected.

I hesitate to conclude that the NetGear AP is bad since it was ok until I disconnected it yesterday.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

It seems to be a hardware failure with the unit. Reset the AP using step below:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which has a small button inside it). Press the button with the help of a paper clip. and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the device for 5 seconds.

Check if you are able to access its configuration page using the steps below:

1. Connect the computer to the access point.
2. Click start button (extreme bottom left corner of the screen) on the computer.
3. Click Control Panel from the list.
4. Click on Network Connections.
5. Right click on 'Local Area connection' icon and click on properties.
6. Select Internet protocol TCP/IP from the list of components and click on properties.
7. Select use the following ip address.
8. Assign ip address as: ; subnet mask as: and Default Gateway as:
9. Press 'OK' and 'close' the properties window.
Login to the access point page using the following steps:
1. Open a browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router (usually
3. Login to the AP(User Name = admin and Password = password).

Rate it, if it helps.

Cant find wep key

You will need to access the router (via its local web address using a suitable web browser) Once you have provided the login information, surf to the wireless security section and either document the WEP key (if not encrypted) or change it. Understand that changing the WEP key will invalidate any else's access, so be sure to share the change. The WEP key may have to be done in HEX, meaning that it must be done with the numerals 0-9 and ONLY the letters A-F. The ket must also be a specific length, usually 13 or 26 characters depending on the requirements of the router.

Hi, i have the Netgear N600 Wireless USB, wich works well on several routers, BUT doesn't want to connect to the MOTOROLA SBG 900 router. It finds the MOTOROLA ROUTER and prompt me to type the WEP...

You mention "the WEP security code of my internet provider, and from this either you mean the WEB of your Router that you provided that the other devices use, or you mean something like the user name and password that you use to log into the ROUTER to set the settings for it. I'd try to help; but, it's not clear what you are really having an issue with. You should be able to check any device that uses that router and get the information needed. But, mostly devices just need to have you put in the password, in this case the same WEP used on other devices, as long as you are using the same protocol in the new device this should work.

The other issue you have is that you list the model of a Netgear Router: WNDR3400100NAS but you call it a USB, which sounds more like a NIC (network interface card). So, there's confusion over what is trying to connect to what. Are you trying to connect a device, or another router to the first router wirelessly. And that's another problem altogether. So I see three issues with your description, could you be a little more succinct?

How to enter WEP passkey for router when there are 4. using HP210

On your router set up interface you will find the wireless network key.
If it is WEP then it will show you WEP Passphrase and WEP Key.
You need to type in WEP key and not the passphrase. WEP key is 10 or 26 digit Hexadecimal number. You need to enter this 10 or 26 digit number.
open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings of the router.

I need the netkey or webkey for my wgr614v8 netgear router. I can't connect to the internet from my laptop. It keeps asking for my netkey.

You need to connect to the web interface of the router from a PC, using a standard ethernet cable.

You then set the Wireless encryption (WEP key or WPA passphrase) in the Netgear router. Goto to find the manual for your router if you don't have one.

You then have to set the same WEP key or WPA value in the laptop computer.

I do not know my wep key

Your WEP key is the security password that you set up when you set up your network at your home. This has to be done through your computer. When you log into your router you are able to allow certain items internet access. once you have that list created yu should have no problems.

Netgear wgr614uk wep code

If you are the origional owner of the router, then you had set the WEP key, which is a password meant to prevent others from stealing your internet. If you still cant do it, Go to your routers configuration and restore it to factory settings. Then you can set your own WEP Tkip style passcode and connect the Wii wirelessly and correctly. For further help, just ask me.
