Netgear WRN854T RangeMax Router

I purchased it in August of 2007 and had it set up with a SSID name and Web 10 digit incription code. This morning March 8th 2008 I went to get on the internet and the router was dead. All I have is a green power light and nothing else. I have reset it several times hoping to get it to work and had not luck at all. I tried to reset to factory default and as far as I can tell nothing has resest. Any Suggestions?

    I could not get the router to do anything. that was the whole issue. If i unplugged for about an hour and was able to load the new firmware updates and that did not fix the problem. I reset it off and on for two days and gave up trying to fix it. I happend to find the reciept and had time left to return it and so I did and replace it with a different model. Thanks for trying.

    I returned the router to Bestbuy and purchased a different model.

    Is your modem functioning properly? Are all the lights on the modem as they are normally? Can you access your router with your browser - normally you would enter 192.168.0.1?

Sorry to bring the bad news to you but your router is dead. This is a common problem with this router, it even has its own name: The Green Ring of Death (GROD) referring to the green round power light that stays on. You can actually restore the wired capabilities, but your wirelessbit is kaput. Go to http://www.imovedtolinux.com/2008/11/fix-for-netgear-wnr854t-green-ring-of.html to see how to fix your brivked router.

After doing a reset on the router, check ip address of your pc. If pc is getting 192.168.x.x, that means that the dhcp server of the router is still functioning.

You can do a FIRMWARE UPGRADE ON YOUR ROUTER.

You can contact Netgear tech support so they can look at this also.

Good Day

I am starting to install Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router WPN824 v2 I reset to factory settings. I have windows XP professional. The unit is powered, and connected to the internet. what is the next step?...


Once you have your router connected to your Modem, connect your computer to any open port on the router, and with your Web Browser, go to http://192.168.1.1 and log in to the router. Login is (default) login name is admin and default password is just a blank field. Once you have logged in to your router, go through setting up things like IP address (leave at "Get Dynamically from ISP". Same with DNS server --- "Get automatically from ISP". MAC address should be already filled in. Click Apply. You should be good to go for wired router use, and if you want to use it wirelessly then you need to click "Wireless Settings", pick your SSID (Name of your network) and any security you choose. After this you ought to be set for wireless access as well.

Netgear range max cant be found by ps3 please help


1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences
