I am trying to connect another computer to my wireless network but i do not know my netgear code, where do i find this?


Netgear code? Can you be more specific?

Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".

  1. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  2. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  3. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  4. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
  5. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  6. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.

I have a wireless MacBook, trying to set up internet on iPod Touch. Do not remember nor can find password for router. Help!!


Hi Friend,

Connect the router to a computer and turn it on. Type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar of the Internet Explorer and hit enter. Type admin as Username and password as Password(default password for netgear routers).

In the Setup page, click Wireless Settings tab. If the Security options is selected as WEP, then note down the password form Key1. If the Security options is selected as WPA then note down the password from Passphrase.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

How to install and will this box allow my desktops(2 of them ) to both be connected to a wireless network?


There are 2 ways to setup Netgear
1. Setup Wizard (which guides you through a setup wizard)
2. Manual Configuration (you need to put all values in router manually)

Here we are not discussing Setup Wizard as Manual configuration is far much easier then auto configuration

To configure (config) Netgear we need to get into router page
To open router config page
1. Open Internet Explorer (Start>>all prog>>Internet Explorer)
2. Type in address bar 192.168.0.1
3. In username box type admin (where it says gateway 192.168.0.1 requires username & password)
4. In password box type password (word password itself)
After this you will find Netgear ADSL Wireless Router Setup page

Here we need to select Basic Settings (as shown below)
basicsettings.jpg


after this you will find next page as

basicsettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page (Basic Settings Page)

Does your internet connection requires login, Select Yes
Select Encapculation as PPPoE
Login is Username as provided by your ISP
Password is your password for broadband connection as provided by your ISP
Keep Idle timeout as 0

after this simply press apply without changing anything else


Now We Need to click on ADSL Settings Page
adslsettings.jpg


Now on ADSL Setting Page We got only 3 options

adslsettingsscreen.jpg
Multiplexing Method Should be LLC-Based
VPI 0
VCI 35

now just press apply again

By this time your router should be only (you can check it by opening any website on Internet Explorer or by router status option on netgear page)


To Config Wireless

Click on Wireless Option (on left hand side blue panel)

wirelesssettings.jpg


It should display next page as

wirelesssettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page

Wireless Network Name (SSID) Alpha-Numeric name which would be displayed as your wireless network name

Region Here Select Your Region

Channel: Select whichever channel give you best sighal (9, 11, 13 are recommended)

Keep the TIck on Enable Wireless Access Point

Keep the Tick on Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)

Can Untick Wireless Isolation

Then Jump to Security Options

Select WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre Shared Key)

then in WPA-PSK Security Encryption type in anything of your own choice but alphabets and numbers both should be there and make it between 8 to 63 characters long.
WPA-PSK Security Encryption Key is your password for wireless network

Now Press Apply and your router is ready for wireless too

After doing this you can change MTU (Maximum Transmit Unit) size to 1400 from WAN Setup Option

You can find WAN Setup Option in same blue panel on left hand side of screen

wansetup.jpg

Here you just need to change MTU to 1400 and need not to change any other setting

wansetupscreen.jpg

Now its all done and router is ready to send wireless signal to your system/laptop

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.

How do i password protect my router from outsiders connecting


Hi, check out the support pages here:-
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/DG834G.asp

Select your model (v3,v4,v5 etc) then look at the setup pages. Set your security to WPA rather then WEP as this is easily crackable, and with WPA you can choose the password. You should also change the routers admin password to be extra safe.
Let me know if you need anymore help.
