Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

1 Answer

WEP encryption ana Wireless connectivity

We have a netgear rangemax router coneected to 2 computers wirelessly, the main one having a Belkin wireless G Desktop card in it... For some reason we keep losing the connection between the main computer and the router, the other computer upstairs is fine...

I have tried reseting the router and repostioning it and the antennae on the back of the network card, but it's not good, the connection keeps cutting in and out...

Can you offer a solution to this problem?

Also, how can I set up a WEP key on my internet? I am not technically minded, but think a WEP key is needed for our network.

Thanks for your help,

Chris Kulski.

  1. Open an Internet browser, and type http://192.168.0.1. If a "Configuration Assistant" appears immediately, then do not follow the rest of these instructions. Follow the Configuration Assistant instructions, instead. Once you are finished, test your Internet connection by browing online,
  2. Type admin for User Name, and password for Password. (Older routers use 1234 as the password.)
  3. Click OK. This logs you into the router
  4. Click Setup Wizard on the top left corner, Select Yes for the Setup Wizard to detect the type of internet connection and click Next.
  5. The Setup Wizard will detect the type of Internet connection. DSL connections which require a login to connect to the internet will be detected as PPPoE. Click Next
  6. Configure your router with the username and password provided by your ISP and click Apply.
  7. The router will now save these settings. When complete, you can verify whether you are connected to the internet from the Router Status > Maintenance menu.
  8. Verify you have a valid IP address (not-blank / 0.0.0.0) on the Internet Port assigned by your ISP
  9. check if you are able to go online wired..
  10. to setup wireless
  11. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.
  12. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
  13. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  14. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  15. then check in your w/ls laptop, you would find your w/ls n/w name , try connect to it, enter your key , you would get connected

I set the router from wap security to wep and i cant connect to it now.


The WEP encryption key is in the router's wireless settings and changing this encryption will affect your wireless connection.
You must also configure the computer's wireless card settings with this WEP encryption otherwise the wireless router will not allow the computer to connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is a later and stronger encryption method than WEP encryption.

I need my wep key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

The WEP encryption key is configured in the router's wireless settings. This encryption key is then used to configure the wireless card in the computer so it can connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is stronger than the old WEP encryption.

I have a wpn824-2 and I am trying to set up a connection from my lap top. It is asking me for a network key or wep key. Where do I find it?


You can get the WEP or Network Security Key from the Router.

Login to the Router as follows (make sure that it is connected to the Computer using LAN-Wired connection):

1. Start the Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefor or Safari.

2. Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL.

3. Type "admin" as user name and as "password" as password.

4. Go to the "Wireless Settings" option.

5. Set the Wireless Network Password (either WEP or WPA key) will be listed next to Security Encryption.


You may also use any third party utility to get the Wireless Security key save in the Computer (in which wireless connection is working and key is saved).


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
