Get another router, this is a common problem with Netgear, life span is too short. Try TP-LINK, you'll be surprise.

SOURCE: Netgear WPN 824 Low wireless signal

If you can access the router setup page, the best way to boost the signal is to change the wireless channel on the router setup page to a higher channel so the signal will be strong...

SOURCE: airlink ar430w not giving a network address to netgear wpn111

Try assigning the IP address manually. To do so go to Network Connections, right click on the wireless connection and click on Properties, select Internet Protocol TCP/IP and click on Properties again. Select use the following IP address and type the address of the same range as of your Router's IP. In case you do not know the range try 192.168.1.5 or 172.16.1.5 with the subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 for both, and when you use the IP as 192.168.1.5 use the default gateway as 192.168.1.1 and for 172.16.1.5 use the default gateway as 172.16.1.1 Also select the lower option as "Use following DNS Server address" and for 192.168.1.5 use 192.168.1.1 and for 172.168.1.5 use 172.16.1.1 .Click on Ok. Click on Ok again and now check for the connectivity.

4. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).

The Vizio does not have Internet capabilities. You need to hook up a computer via the VGA or HDMI port. Then youor computer controls what you do with the intenet.

What kind of wireless access point or extender should I use to project wifi in far bedrooms of a long, train-car like house?


Hi James, the wireless extender is the best way but you should go for the plug in type.....this plugs into the mains and gives you wifi and 1 wired connection, so you can plug into the room you want wifi to reach, I have linked a Netgear option but there are others! EX2700

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

I was given Netflix (stream-in) for a gift, but can not get it to come onto our tv. Please help.


Your TV must be a 'smart' TV i.e. it should have software enabling it to connect to the internet and access features such as Netflix. If you don't have a 'smart' TV then you can purchase a set top box which can be connected to your TV and will allow you to access on-line services such as Netflix. If you have a 'smart' TV then you still need to connect it to your internet router, either with an Ethernet cable or via WiFi if the TV has WiFi built in (or you can buy a WiFi adapter for the TV). If you connect with an Ethernet cable then the TV will connect to your router (and internet) with no further setup. If you use WiFi then you will need to access the WiFi settings menu on the TV and configure the settings for your router.

My Nook HD will not connect to the Netgear router. Is there something I can do?


It depends on the specific authentication or security method used by the router. A lot of newer devices will only use WPA/WPA2 security, a lot of older routers still use WEP security. If that is the case, you may need to log in to your router as administrator and change the security/authentication to WPA/WPA2 and choose a new password if the router supports that security protocol. If it does not you would have to buy a new router to connect the Nook to it.

Netgear G54 Wireless Router says authentication failed


To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How do I stream netflix to my t.v. using my netgear router


If your TV has a Netflix app installed, you simply need to connect your TV to the network either with an ethernet cable or wirelessly.

If your TV does not have internet connectivity, you must connect a device that allows you to stream Netflix (like a PS3, Wii, Roku, Blu-ray player or even a laptop). That device must connected to your home router (wired or wirelessly).
