Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

1 Answer

Router problems I just installed a new netgear WPN824v2 router to my XP sp2 computer. I've power-cycled my cable modem, router and computer. I have a network connection and Network Magic doesn't have any alerts. I can get to a number of web sites but frequently while navigating the site, a link will time-out. If I take out the router, the problem goes away. I don't have any site filtering selected on the router but it appears that some type of filtering must be occurring anyway. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Try changing the MTU size of the router.
Set the MTU for cable connection to 1500/1400/1300
For DSL use 1492.

How do i hook this router up wpn824v2


Your router is connected between your modem (Cable or DSL) and your computer. Connect the modem output to the WAN or Internet connector on your router. Connect any of the output connectors to your computer's Network Input. Log in to the router by (with your Browser) going to 192.168.1.1 ... after logging to router (login parameters in manual) set your Network Name (SSID) and set up Wireless security. I prefer using WPS-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of setup.

Can't connect Netgear router with ATT DSL


After you hook everything up the first thing you want to do is power cycle everything. So unplug the power cord on the router and the modem, Then plug the modem back in first and once the lights all come back on then plug in your router and once those lights come up i would reboot your PC and see it that helps.

Do i need a disk to install a netgear wireless?


You need a network cable (cat5e) to connect the cable modem to the wan or Internet port on the router. Then another network cable to connect the router port(1-4) to the computer's network (NIC) port. If you are going wireless, you do not need to connect the second cable.
You do not need a disk. just power down the cable modem,router and computer.
Hook it all up, then power up the cable modem first, wait 30 seconds, then power up the router, wait 30 seconds, then power up the computer. You shold be able to get online.
Unless: you are using DSL
and unless the original owner had an encryption key on the router.

Installation problems


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

i have read the same problem on the supportrix forum and you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

Internet Connection Drops Repeatedly


These sections may be done in any order. After each, check the connection. Restart Your Network Devices Many problems are solved by rebooting your system. Do it in this order: 1. Power off your computer. 2. Power off your router. 3. Power off your modem. 4. Power on your modem. Wait until modem is completely restarted before the next step. This may take upward of two minutes. 5. Power on your router. Wait until router completely restarts. This also can take upward of two minutes. 6. Power on your computer. Do Other Computers Have this Problem? If other computers are working, the problem is likely with the computer that doesn't work. * If you changed or upgraded your firewall software or anti-virus software, try disabling it. If it's causing the problem, contact the software manufacturer. * If you upgraded Windows XP, then the Windows firewall may be on without you being aware. Disable the firewall: NETGEAR routers do a better job. Check that Your Router Configuration Matches Your ISP's Parameters If you can connect to the router but not to the Internet, check the ISP parameters match in the router settings. The parameters depend on your broadband service. Typically for DSL, you enter the router the Account Name (aka Host Name) and a Password. Domain Name and DNS Server Address are other parameters that may be required. If unsure which settings to use, or of their values, contact your ISP. Cable broadband customers typically only need to configure the router from the same computer where the broadband service was established. Improve Your Wireless Transmission If you have a wireless network, see http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=102079&prdid=252225. Upgrade the Router and Adapters NETGEAR's goal is to have reliable and easy-to-use hardware and software. Despite best intentions, occasionally you need to upgrade firmware or software or drivers for fixes (and new features). If you upgrade to a beta, Customer Support is not available until returning to a non-beta version. You use PPPoE or Another Service Requiring a Login Routers have an default timeout of 5 minutes, after which the connection is renegociated. There may be a delay, or the connection may drop if there is a problem with the Internet service. The value can be set higher, or to 0, meaning the router never logs out. Consult your manuals for instructions. You Have Windows XP Service Pack 1 Either upgrade to Service Pack 2, note that there are some Compatibility issues with SP2.
