Wnr834bv2 power light is sometimes on in amber, then blinking green and I keep losing connection


Try resetting and then reconfigure the router.
To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press andhold 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 yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = passwordYou can now change the default admin password and configurethe wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Lets remove the netgear router from the equation. Plug your desktop directly into your modem (comcast, verizon, embark, etc). Let the computer grab an IP and test your internet.

If you are able to surf the internet then the problem resides on the PCI Card. Try downloading the new drivers online.

Hello, Trying to install this NetGear RangeMax NEXT WN311B into a Pentium III computer with a AMD chip, should be fairly simple just put SSID and Passphrase, - IT WILL NOT CONNECT! Please help


From a computer that uses an Ethernet cable to connect to the router,
access the web-server "inside" the router, and enable "logging" of events,
i.e., attempts to connect, and IP-addresses handed-out by the router to wired/wireless clients.

Then, on the computer with the RangeMax, try again to connect.

Go back to the computer connected to the web-server, and "refresh" the view of the newly-updated "log" file. What new messages are displayed?

Howdy.We are not connected in any way with Netgear, but I hear your frustration. Since you have only one ethernet plug,I wonder if you might try using the new netgear rangemax instead of the other netgear router rathern than with it. They suggest you use these with the rangemax:
"We recommend using this product with the RangeMax Next Wireless-N Adapters (WN511B, WN311B, WN121T"
Good luck with your situation, I'm rooting for you:)

No Power to my Netgear Rangemax Next Wireless N-Router WNR834Bv2


This happens from time to time with these routers. It happenned to me with a Linksys and I found that the power unit in the router failed. One thing you could do is try a couple of different wall sockets or see if another adapter might work. Is your Netgear new enough to get replaced by the store?
