    it is measuring almost 120 V. I have had it more than a year so I am sure there is no warranty. The screws have a star shape head - don't have anything that fits it.

Press the hard reset firmly but dont break it.

Can you use the transformer on a similar rated device to assure your trans is putting out the required volts - or - can you measure it with a volt-ohm meter?

I dont think there is a fuse inside, but you could open the case and check. Check the fuse with a contunity checker (volt - ohm meter)

You say the case has a tag that says you will void the warranty if you break it? Is there a warranty on it?

If you have a warranty, get it serviced. If the warranty is expired, duh, it dont work now and you will not make it any worse.

Let me know what you find out

    The star shape is called "Torx". You can get Torx at Sears (K-mart) or any auto parts store. They come in several sizes. Take your device with you to get the right size.



    The 120 Volts is the front - what about the other end? Doesnt it go through a transformer?

    Your transformer was dead then?



    Im glad your situation is solved.

This router is not working


Try the reset button to put it back to factory default. If it's still not working, it's time for a new router.

How to reset Netgear RangeMax NExT Wireless Router WNR834B


Do a hard reset (20sec hold reset button, unplug for 20 sec still pressing the reset button and another 20 sec to turn on the power while holding the reset button). That should reset to defaults.

Msg. conntected with limited access


Try this.

Unplug the Router.
Unplug the modem.
Wait about 15-20 secs.
Reconnect the modem.
wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display.
Reconnect the Router.
Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up.
Try connecting again.

If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.

My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.

If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)

I hope this helps,
Simon.

Lost internet connection


If that Toshiba laptop is not in use do you still experience that problem?
You may change wireless channel in your router.
Do a firmware upgrade for your router as well.

Hope this helps!

Get the driver for the WN121T from the NetGear webset and install it before pluging the adapter into the notebook. Use a wired connection on the notebook until you have the drive downloaded.
