Re: netgear wpn824 router problem

Sounds like you[ve already found the solution. The sledgehammer combined with going out to buy a new router (anything but Netgear) should do the trick. It's much better than spending countless hours on the phone with a tech from India who doesn't know shit and only asks questions that they are reading from a transcript. Their customer service is shit and so are their products.

My Netgear WPN824 wireless router stopped working. With the exception of the internet LED (which doesn't come on at all), all of the lights are blue and doing sort of a slow, pulsating blink. No m

The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.

My new/replacement modem: Motorola 2210-02, will not work with my old Netgear WPN824. I've tried everything I can think of, and I do not want to buy a new router. Any suggestions??? -Terru

If the modem and the router both want to be on, try setting the router to go to, or see if your ISP can provide you instructions for turning the router portion of the motorola off (Bridging the modem is the technical term). At that point they may be able to provide you with how to setup the router to work on your connection as the primary connection holder.

No LAN output from router

This router has 4 LAN ports and 1 WAN port. If you mean to say like if you are running out of LAN ports or if you require more LAN ports to connect more number of computers. Then you can buy a network switch which will help you connect more computers. All you have to do is run a ethernet cable from router's LAN to switch LAN
