    I am having the same problem with my laptop not connecting after setting up my WPN824 v2.

    It sees the router but hooks up only giving me limited connectivity. This means of course no internet service. The signal strength indicates excelent. I don't understand the problem. I did check for possible connection on another near by network. No problem with that. I beleive the connection at the desktop is good from what I can see..

Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.

Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.

Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.

Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...

if you're online and loses connection every couple of minutes,that most likely be and issue with you ISP. it's intermittent connection issue with the server or might be the modem if it's more than a year.. better is to contact your ISP to check on their end,also to create a work order to investigate and monitor the issue.

Lost setup DC


The router is compatible with any operating system. You don't need to use the CD that came with it to setup the internet connection. Just open the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.2.1 on your browser. There you can see the automatic setup.
