Yes, You can set it as a wireless access point. All you need to do is follow the steps below.

1. open internet browser, enter on the address bar http://routerlogin.com
2. username is admin, password is password.
3. Go to wireless, change the wireless settings like the ssid and setup the encrption. Go to LAn settings under advance.
4. Disable the dhcp server and change the ip address of your WNR1000
ex. You plan to connect your wnr1000 to a w ired route rwith an ip address of 192.168.1.1. You can set the wnr1000 to 192.168.1.x ( except 1)
Save the changes,
Plug the access point wnr1000 to the lan port on the main router and the other end also on the lan port on the wnr1000.(LAN to LAN)

It should be working now as an access point.

Padlock on my netgear is on


Even though it's locked down you should still be able to connect locally. You may need to use a cable. Once logged into the router you can access the settings to allow access.

Is there a download setup disc wnr1000v2-vc gateway?


No, but you don't need it.

Just read the manual and access it via the web browser and set it up manually.

Forgot password and user name and i never had put a emial


default password is password

Looking for the NETGEAR WNR1000 default password?

You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad

f you've forgotten the WNR1000 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device,

the WNR1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR WNR1000, the default password is password. As with most passwords,

the WNR1000 default password is case sensitive

Be sure to change the default router password on your WNR1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in.

Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WNR1000 password

hope this helps

it would be easy, first things first. you need to connect your laptop directly to the netgear router. by plugging the ethernet cable on the first slot after the yellow slot on its back. after making sure that we are connected. try to open up internet explorer or mozilla firefox. then type this numbers, " 192.168.1.1 it should ask you for a username and password. username is "admin" all in lower case and password is the word "password" itself. all in lower case. after that it would take you now to the netgear page. then try to check the leftside of the screen and look for wireless settings. make sure you would be on wireless settings. because the other one is advance wireless settings. then create your own network name in SSID. then choose security options as WPA PSK TKIP. then create your own personal password in passphrase. make sure its 8 characters long then click apply settings. then try to access it now then unplugged cable. then try to access website. it should work.

Hello my set up disc dont work how can i get set up software free


you don't need the disk- log into the router using 192.168.1.1 (or .0.1) in a web browser- at that point, you can manually configure your router for your connection type

I have an ipod touch and im trying to find out my router password for a netgear wireless wnr1000 model router.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a desktop/laptop computer to one of the LAN ports on the router. Then, access the web-server "inside" the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to set an SSID and to enable 'WAP' security, and to set a password.

Connection is intermitent. I receive signal and it works fine for 5 minutes. Then the signal continues but I do not get internet access netgear wnr1000


Do you have anything else on the network besides your computer? If you do, it may be a conflicting IP address. I was told by the Comcast tech that the WNR1000 doesn't allow additional routers on the same network. Have to upgrade to a WNR3500 for that. When I disconnected my wireless extender, it fixed the problem.

Hi,

Please perform the below steps to reset and reconfigure your WNR1000 router:

RESET:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which says restore to factory default settings). Press the button with the help of a paper clip and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the router for 5 seconds then power the router back.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this allows you to resolve the issue.

Regards
Anand
