Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I use remote desktop, winxp profess. Every so often the router hangs up eliminating remote access until the netgear MR814 router is rebooted. Is there any way I can reboot this wireless router remotely? If not, what router would you suggest that I can have it automatically reset at a pre -selected time each day? millergh@yahoo.com Thanks for your help.

It is not uncommon for routers of any type that I've tried to ' glitch ' or ' hang '. The timer mentioned above may help a bit but what is to stop the router from ' hanging ' inbetween the timer settings? I agree with the getting the timer as long as it doesn't cost to much, but I would also add that getting the newest firmware update for router may and probably will help a lttle at least. Netgear is similar to Linksys in style and manufacturing, in fact I've heard that Netgear routers are often made by Linksys ( walmart deal I hear ). The last time I visited the Netgear site it offered little to boost my confidence in the routers but it did offer firmware updates in a minor sense of the word ' update '.
I also noticed that many factors affecting Netgear routers were addressed on the Linksys website, but please be careful of mentioning Netgear on the Linksys website as they sometimes get a little upset by the notion of an unwanted stepchild. I would never and I mean never suggest updating a Netgear router using a Linksys firmware update.

I would go to your local radio shack or electronic dealership and buy an automatic timer, and plug your router into that. have set to shut off then turn on at certain times. it will work for just fine. you can get them at kmart or pretty much anywhere. if you not sure about the device im writing about just tell someone in the store to get you a timer that has 110 v plug and explain what you need it for . hope you find one, good luck

D-link modem>Belkin 4 port router connected to Winxp pc and Vista pc the vista connects to broadband but the Winxp doesn't the network is ok


the DHCP packets arent' being understood by the xp computer.

Often manufacturers skimp on the router firmware, and bodge it up. (often seen in dlink and netgear.)

Have you tried flashing the router to the latest firmware?

If that doesn't improve it, either try cabled, or try forcing a static IP.

Most Wireless Routers by LinkSys, D-Link and NetGear are pretty good and stable. Personally, have tried LinkSys WRT54G (as a repeater), WRT300N and NetGear MR814.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Can not get internet or local web thru my netgear router (wgt624v3)


Have you run the configuration CD that came with the router?
You may also have to make changes to your firewall configuration in order to connect to the Internet.
If you no longer have the install CD, use the network setup wizard included in WinXP.

3 weeks ago installed netgear rangemax router along with a gateway laptop com. also a H.P. printer wireless. eveerything was working fine now printer will not work wireless and i canot get into my router...


Try the reset switch on the back of the router. Using a paperclip, hold the reste switch in for 30 secs and then power down the router. Once that is completed, you should be able to access the router config page under factory settings.
