Question about NetGear RangeMax NEXT WNR834B Wireless Router

Get booted off

We have a netgear wireless router, when we get on the home PC everything is find, but just recently when my son gets on the xbox live we get booted off the home PC computer (no link to the enternet and it has been working find since December), we have called our internet provider and they say it is our router but when we call netgear they tell us that we are lucked to get 1-3 years of use out of the router. We bought this router a little over a year ago and it was the most expensive one you could get at that time and supposable the best and we even have 2 IP address just for the xbox live.....so could their be a problem with the router because when we do get "booted off" we have to disconnect the power to the router and rehook up...do we need a router or do we need to go and make sure the xbox is going off its IP address???

Ok. i have the exact same problem, but i use linksys. I have has geeksquad and they dont know. I have only one option i havent tried. try to just hook up the modem to your router only. Buy a wireless adapter for your home computer. If it doesnt work, return it for a refund. I feel for you guys because i have been going through hell and it drives me crazy that even geeksquad doesnt know. (By the way dont buy that garbage when the people say you need a new router, because they just want more money.)

My son has just bought a Xbox 360 kinect and he wants to sign up for the online Xbox live and we are unable to get the WEP key in order to connect. We are using the Netgear but have tried 192.168.0.1,...


What you are entering are IP addresses, these are not the WEP encryption key.
The XBox needs the Netgear WEP encryption key, this is in the Netgear wireless settings.
To get this encryption key connect a LAN cable from a computer's LAN port to the Netgear, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password
You can now go into the wireless settings - you can view the WEP encryption key

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I recently installed a Linksys wireless router in my home and now I can't get my son's Xbox Live or I-pod touch to accept the signal. What could be the problem?


the router model is WRT160N.
Is there any other wireless computer able to go online using the same router ?
open the router set up page on the main computer.
check the wireless settings of the router.
Change the standard channel to 6 if it is on auto. Also make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
Check the wireless security settings .
If all doesn't work then upgrade the firmware of the router.

Xbox live problem


If you cannot connect using the wireless because the signal strength is too low, you can connect the Xbox using a LAN cable to the router. You might need someone to install the LAN cable for you depending upon how you can locate neatly.

XBOX Live & Netgear Router Help!!!!!!!!!!!


You need a excellent signal to your Xbox. Xbox requires a constant connection. My son as an Xbox and we had to run a wire connection to the Xbox no problems after that. Or you need to move your wireless router to the same room as your xbox to get a stronger connection.

Please rate my response.

Xbox 360 wireless connection


If you already have wireless router you will need something like this:

Or you can always buy a third party wireless device that is capable with Xbox 350.
