Question about NetGear WNDR3700 Wireless Router

3 Answers

Why don't my wireless connections (laptop, iPod) prompt me for a password to join my Netgear WNDR3700 network? They should ask me for one, but for some reason, nope.

    This is the only router that has not prompted me for a password. I have used 3 other routers, so I'm not sure what is happening. I see the network (SSID), and I can join, but it does no good because I am never asked for a password. Strange.

    No, this is not what I am asking. Please read what I have written.

That is beacuse you have not set a wireless password. To do this you should login into your router, click on the wireless option and choose an encryption method (WEP, WPA/WPA2+) and a password. Once you do this and apply the changes your router will reboot and then you will be prompted for a password to joining your network.

Sai.

Hi!
Do you manage to surf the net? Access other computers or devices on your network?

If you DO manage to do so, it seems that you only need to configure wireless security ("password") in the router itself (at first)!
Get into the router's web interface and configure the wireless security/encryption settings...
Please specify the exact router model if you need further assistance with that.

If you can't surf the web or access any devices on the net, RESET the router (using the reset button) - then reconfigure the internet connection settings, as well as the wireless security settings.

Best regards,
Pelu.

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point


The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

How can i have an internet connection with my itouch gadget thru belkin router? thank you.


  • Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch.


  • Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks.


  • Select the wireless network you want to connect to (Belkin something). You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join."


  • Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.


  • Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."


  • Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.

    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.

    Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it.
  • Step 2 Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks.
  • Step 3 Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join."
  • Step 4 Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.
  • Step 5 Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."

    • Don't despair if you do not have a wireless network connection in your home. Public libraries often have wireless Internet access and do not charge their patrons for using it. Local cafes, coffeehouses and bookstores may also provide hotspots to their customers, but you may have to pay a fee for the service.
    • Fully charge the battery of your iPod touch before you go in search of a wireless network. Using the USB cable that came with your iPod, hook your iPod up to your computer. Make sure your computer does not go into "sleep" mode or the battery may actually drain instead of charge

    Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch


    You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey.  Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key)  Should work just fine if you follow the steps.

    Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi


    After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

    First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


    To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

    The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
