Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

Click the Wireless Settings link near the left side of the page.

In the box called SSID put a name that you make up. You will need to remember this name because it will be used to connect to your wireless network. Do not make it obvious to guess, the network name should be difficult for your neighbors to guess. If you can not think of anything, simply use your first name.

In the box called Channel, pick a random channel number. Channels make it so that you and your neighbors can use your own wireless networks without interfering with each other. By picking a random channel you reduce the chance of your neighbor using the same channel as you.

Choosing your network security type can be challenging. Use the table below to help you decide which encryption type is best for you.

Put a dot into the WEP radio button.

Select Open System from the Authentication Type drop down box.

Select 128bit from the Encryption Strength drop down box.

Put a dot into the Key 1 radio button.

If you are using WEP Now you need to make up your network key.

It doesn't matter what this key is, as long as it is random. A network key is a password that is 26 characters long, and made up of only the letters A,B,C,D,E,F and the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. If you are using 128 bit WEP, then your key must be exactly 26 characters long, and the more random it is, the better it is. Here is an example of a random 128 bit network key:

7F5B3FD23A8EC290AC682DF8FA

Onnce you have made up your key, write it down somewhere. You will need it at each computer that you are going to connect to your network.

Now put the key you made up in the box called Key 1.

When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done!

I'm trying to connect a netgear wpn 824 to a comcast router with windows 7


You are trying to set up the wireless router with the comcast modem, right ?
You can set up the router manually , without the disc.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the comcast modem only.
If you have the router working already then you just need to add a computer to the network.

I cannot find my wpa or wpn on my wireless netgear 824 v2


You shouldnt be able to find the WPA or WPN you would have set this when you first installed and setup your wireless netgear router. Your supposed to write it down before the installation completes I had one. There should be a saved file that Netgear saved during installation that states your password and other info.

I have a netgear rangemax wpn 824. I can't get a connection.I forgot the network key.


Just hook up your computer to the router via ethernet cable. Choose one of the numbered ports on the back of the computer and plug the other end into your computer. Then go to a web browser either internet explorer, firefox, safari, opera, whichever one you like to use. In the URL box try putting http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 one of these should prompt you for a username and password the default being username: admin and the password: password. After that you can navigate to the wireless setting and then go to wireless security settings to look up or change your wireless security settings. If you have any troubles with this just comment back.

Trying to hookup a wireless router to HP 1100


DSL uses PPOE, which may be different than what you had previously. Cable, for example, uses TCP/IP.
Re-set the router to defaults, and follow the instructions for PPOE, which should be in your manual or setup disk. Your ISP may have this info on their site, or you can get it at the Netgear site:

Wpn 824 wireless issues.


if you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.
