Go into the router configure to view the wireless settings, it contains the SSID and encryption etc.
Open IE browser and enter the Netgear URL configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1)

A network printer must have a built-in print server or be attached to a print server device on the network then all the computers on the network can access this printer.
For a run of the mill printer to work as a network printer it needs to be attached to a computer which is on your network and the printer needs to be setup as a shared printer. This printer and computer must always be switched on for the other computers on the network to access and print to this printer. This method does not require any additional software.

I have an Arnova 9G2 tablet and a Netgear WNDR3300 wireless router. How do I add the wi fi network to the tablet? I donot have any SSID for the router.....


Without the SSID, you can't add the Arnova tablet to that network. The default SSID for the WNDR3300 is NETGEAR. You'll need to log into the router (preferably with a device on the wired network ports). Make sure that the wireless network is on and broadcasting its SSID for the 2.4GHz network. Confirm the password (passkey) and the encryption protocol. (The default user name and password for the router is in the manual, see page 19 (page 23 on the PDF) of http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WNDR3300V1/WNDR3300_SM_12Nov07.pdf . )

The tablet will look for available networks after you go to the Settings menu on the Home screen. Go to the Wireless & Network. Then turn on the Wi-fi (if needed) and then go to Wi-fi settings. Then find the SSID and enter the password and encryption type.

I hope this helps.

IT SEEMS LIKE OTHER PEOPLE IS STILLING MY WIRELESS. TELL ME HOW TO BLOCK IT


Use WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. WEP security is not secure at all. Change your SSID to something you recognize. The default is NETGEAR. everyone who buys a router may have this name. MAKE it your own SSID NAME

check in the DHCP client list to see if only your pc's are attached. I am sending a user manual link to get you started.

This is a tutorial for the netgear router in general to make a secure network for wireless.

Hi, I have a netgear DG834G version 3 wireless router. I want to buy a wireless printer, will this router support one? If so, have you any opinions on the best buy? Thanks


any wireless printer should and will work with this modem-router as long as it's wireless settings are configured right, if you already have a computer connecting to this router wirelessly then that means the wireless functionality of your router is working. you just have to know the wireless settings of your router such as the SSID or the wireless network name, the type of wireless security and the wireless security key or encryption key.. once you have a wireless computer and it wireless feature is enabled it will automatically detect all networks name or SSIDs around the area, that includes your modem-router's and neighbors'.. when you try to connect to the SSID of your modem-router you will be asked for an encryption key or a password to be able to connect.. that will only happen if you have enabled a wireless security on your modem-router.

I have a Netgear WPN824v3 wireless router. My hard drive on my laptop crashed so I am getting a new one. I can not find my password, is there any way to retrieve it without resetting the router?


Netgear wireless routers have a tiny reset button on the back of the router.
Power up the router and use a sharp object to press and hold this reset button until the LEDs start flashing, then release the reset button.
The Netgear router will now be restored to the factory defaults.
To configure the Netgear wireless router : -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL

http://192.168.0.1
3. Enter the router setup login and password (which are admin, and password)
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WAP2
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .


To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

Wireless computer not working


Hi,

1. make sure that the wireless card is properly installed in your computer. (if it is a laptop, make sure that the wireless switch is on).
2. make sure that the distance of the wireless router and wireless pc is not very far
3. if you know the wireless configuration of your router proceed with number 4, if not see my note below.
4. right click the wireless icon on the pc, choose 'view available wireless network' or connect to a network.
5. check if your SSID is showing. If it is showing and it says secured, click on it and enter your encryption (either WPA or WEP or WPA2).
6. if SSID is not showing, go to the router configuration page and change your channel. play around with your channel until your non working pc sees the SSID.

note(checking router configuration): on the wired pc, open internet explorer browser, type http://192.168.0.1 (default username is admin & password is password or 1234) Note: if you changed your ip address or password on the router, use that.

WANT TO CONFIGURE IT


First make sure the PS is hard wired to the router and you have all the wireless settings handy (including the SSID and Wireless Encryption). Then follow the step by step instructions in the file given below: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/netgear1/ps104105110inst_eng.pdf Also, the printer with the ethernet cable seems to be a network printer. So, you need to do much to configure it, if its already configured; just connect it to one of the ethernet ports of the PS. Please revert back with any other queries.
