Question about Computers & Internet

My wnr834b router is about 2 1/2 years old. Suddenly I can't connect wirelessly--my notebook doesn't detect a wireless network--my desk PC is wired to the router and works fine. My notebook works fine wirelessly at work. I've read nothing helpful from the CD that came with the router nor from the netgear site. Any ideas?

So the desktop is working with the wired connection. That means the wired part of the router is working . you will need to check the wireless settings of the router. For this you will need to access the router set up page. When you try to connect to the wireless network , Do you get any message ? Or you are not able to see any wireless network ? The message will be important to identify the problem. First try to connect to the wireless network on the laptop. Try to change the wireless channel on the router. That may help you.

Trouble getting my router to go to wireless


A few things to look at:

1) On the front of the router, is the wireless LED lit up?
2) If it is not then it is either disabled or dead. Connect the router to your pc by cable and in a browser window enter 192.168.1.1.
3) At the login screen enter admin for the user and password for the password.
4) Once you are logged in, use the wizard to setup your wireless connection.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

Wnr834b passphrase won't work


Hello jsnow4 & cooler34788,

For vista OS;
Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Go to "Control Panel" ( switch it to classic view )
2. Click " Network & Sharing Center"
3. At the left side of " Network & Sharing Center", click Manage Wireless Connection ( under task)
4. Delete the profiles of your Wireless connections particulary the one you named for your Netgear wireless ( this is also known as SSID).
5. Click close including "network & Sharing Center"

Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:

a. Click Start then select Connect To.
b. Connect to a network window will show up.
c. Select your wireless network's name or SSID and click Connect.
Since this is an unsecured wireless, Vista will warn you if you wanna connect anyways. Go ahead and connect.

From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.

Can not connect wirelessly with router


The list of wireless routers that are available in Windows is very limited and the signal strength of any router that is detected is weak. This can occur when the Lite-On USB Wireless 802.11 b/g hardware and Windows are not able to fully synchronize the signal strength data. Figure 1: Example of detected wireless devices when the antenna cable wire is connected to secondary port c01153759.jpg Figure 2: Example of detected wireless devices in the same environment when the antenna cable wire is connected to primary port c01153760.jpg To correct this error , download and install Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver Update (sp35177) (in English) from the HP Web site. This update should only be applied if your PC has the Lit-On USB Wireless LAN adapter and is exhibiting the symptom. As a work-around, you can connect the wire that runs from the wireless antenna port to the primary port on the cord as follows: CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
  1. Open the side panel.
  2. Find the wireless networking board by following the antenna wire connected to the wireless networking antenna port on the back of the computer. Figure 3: Wireless networking hardware c01153761.jpg 1 - Wireless network board 2 - Antenna wire 3 - Wireless networking antenna port
  3. Very carefully, disconnect the small wire from the board by gently pulling the end of the wire away from the board.
  4. Connect the wire to the other available port on the board. Figure 4: Available port c01153762.jpg
  5. Replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and use the computer again to verify that wireless signal strengths have improved.

Problems with my new WNR834B


try to customize your wireless settings. change the wireless name/ssid to something else and change the wireless channel as well. verify also if there's a wireless security enabled, if it has you need to use the correct wireless security/network key when connecting your laptop wirelessly. you can go to the router's setup page to verify your wireless settings by typing the ip address of your router to the address bar of your web browser, http://192.168.1.1 (note: by default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1 unless you have changed it to something else. the default username is "admin" and the default password is "password")

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Wireless connection


If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
