You are safe as long as you have all the security measures enabled on your router. What you are seeing is people that are in close anough range that has their own wireless network also. Mine will pick up as far as 5 houses away from where I live at. There are several here. Hope this answers your question?

How to instal


Hi,
You'll wanna check out: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR1000_SM_WW_23Jan09.pdf
Look for "installation"..
To help you set up your router and get on the Internet quickly, the Resource CD contains a Smart Wizard™ Installation Assistant. The Installation Assistant walks you through the steps required to connect your router, modem, and PC(s); configure your wireless settings; and enable wireless security for your network. When you have finished, you will be Internet ready!
You can set up your wireless router using one of two methods:
• Smart Wizard Setup: The Smart Wizard Installation Assistant setup is available on your Resource CD. See "Installing Your Router Using the Smart Wizard" on page 9 to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant.
- This is the easiest option. The wizard guides you through the setup process. It automates many of the steps and verifies that the steps have been successfully completed.
- Smart Wizard requires a PC running Microsoft Windows.
• Manual Setup: If you cannot or prefer not to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant, see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13. For example, if you are connecting to a Mac, are using a Linux operating system, or are technically knowledgeable, select this option. If you choose to use this option and install your router manually, for best results, install and set up your router in this order:
Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or an inability to wirelessly connect to the Internet.
NETGEAR does not recommend or support adding a NETGEAR router behind another router, or replacing a gateway with a a NETGEAR router.
If you have a Macintosh or Linux system, you must use the manual installation method (see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13).Getting to Know Your Wireless Router 7
1. Install and connect your wireless router to your network (see "Connecting Your Wireless Router" on page 14).
2. Set up your wireless router for Internet access (see "Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access" on page 18).
3. Configure your wireless network and select wireless security settings to protect your wireless network (see "Configuring Your Wireless Network" on page 21)

I lost my password to my netgear. How can I retrieve it?


Go to NETGEAR Router.

After connecting the Router into your network, you must configure it. You can do this using the Smart Setup Wizard -- where the wizard will attempt to auto-detect the type of Internet service you have through your ISP -- or you can configure the router manually. It is recommended that, if you aren't used to setting up Internet connections, you let the Smart Setup Wizard do some of the work for you.
To configure the router, you'll use the information that you filled out earlier in the Installation Guide.
To get started:
  1. Select Yes if you want to use the Smart Setup Wizard.
    or
    Select No to configure the router manually.
  2. Click Next.

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.

Still can't get access to the Router


Hi,

By your post/description that the wizard starts @ 192.168.1.1 and it can identify your Internet Connection indicates that chances are, there is nothing wrong with your Netgear RangeMax WPN824 Router. Clicking on the Next tab does not make your browser go to the subsequent page is perhaps a problem with your browser and not with the router. You can try tweaking your browser:
• In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab, Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection, OK, OK;
• In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings", OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
• In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

Alternately if this doesn’t work, try manually configuring your PC’s Network settings:
Click on Start, Control Panel, Network Connection, right click on the networking icon (that is used to connect to the router; WiFi or LAN). Click on Properties button, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on properties button (mid right). In the General tab:
• tick "Use the following IP address"
• Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.201 (201 can be any number from 2-254 that is not in used by any other PC in your Network)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: as provided by your ISP
click on OK, OK, Close.

Additionally, you can try right clicking on the Networking icon (bottom right side) in your Systems Tray and click on Repair.

Worst case is you try and do a hard reset of your Netgear RangeMax WPN824 Router by pressing the small Reset button at the back or bottom for a couple of seconds or till the LEDs flashes. Pls be reminded that a full/hard reset will revert all router’s configuration to factory default.

Should you still need the setup files, they are available at the NetGear site here (depending on the version number). Further manuals, instructions and other documents for this router is available here.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
