Trying to setup netgear n750 Dual band router on my dimension 4600. My ISP is Big Dog. I've tried numerous cable configurations between the PC and router and can't get the PC to detect the router....


to set a wireless router you have to connect it first to the internet using the internet slot (sometimes named (wlan)and also connect the computer (for now ) in the first port on the router ..and in the Lan card on the computer ..using either a Lan/usb cable if the router has the ports on usb ..or a Lan /Lan cable (RJ45 plug)..
After all are powered and on ..you have to type in the browser (IExporer for ex) ..the address of the router..so that you will get to the log in page for the settings needed in the router ..(set the connection to the main internet ..and also settings for IP range to be assigned for the 4 ports..and to set the wireless parameters ..
To get to this page you have to see the router's IP ..(written on the sticker on the back ) ..and type on the browser like it follows:
ex.http://192.168.1.1 and hit enter.or type any of these ones
• http://www.routerlogin.net
• http://www.routerlogin.com
• http://192.168.1.1
and will have the same effect
a window with a log in tab will appear ..and you will have to complete the spaces for admin with the word admin and for password with the word password ..
these being the default set from factory and can be changed in the settings if you want to ..
If you have a broadband modem based connection ..you will need to change the router's default IP with a much simpler one for not to get into conflict with the modem ..so my advice is to set one with 2 digits ..like 10.10.10.1 or so ..It will be easy to remember and sure not to get in conflict ..cause the router also will assign the ip -es for the computers in this range ..(sometimes the modems have similar factory IP and will be in conflict cause the modem will became the default gateway for the router..when you set it ...
I will link the official manual in case you do not have it ..and there is even explained the wizard setting ..and the manual opne ..The idea is that the wizard setting will not be complete and will only set the router for a wireless connection or for to connect to one port ..It best to do it manually and complete.
Here is the manual
ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNDR4000_SM_03NOV2010.pdf
you will need a pdf reader to open it ..such as Adobe reader ..
Good luck ..!

Unable to connect to DHCP server. getting 169.254 ip Have already tried the following: unplug/ reset reboot router; ipconfig /release /renew; Run MBAM Version 1.43; System restore to a date when connection...


Whew! Awesome troubleshooting work there.

When it's configured for DHCP, go to the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties and hit Advanced to bring up the "Advanced TCP/IP Properties" dialog.
Under the IP Settings tab, the top panel should be "IP addresses" and should have "DHCP Enabled" as the only entry, and the default gateway should be blank.

If both of those are correct, then I have one other question for you:

When you manually set an IP, are you able to use the network? If so, are you able to ping the DHCP server's address?

If so, then my guess would be that the DHCP server has a stale record for your Dell's MAC address.

Post back with the "Add Comment" button here and we'll get it working for you.

When I try to run the Dell Wireless Configuration Utility from the control panel I get the following error message:"The wireless network adapter could not be accessed. This application may have diminished...


Well Sir in this case i will advice you to disable the Dell Wireless Configuration Utility and instead use windows utility for a successful connection.

For disabling dell configuration utility follow these steps:-
1)Open dell Wlan utility , it will have five tabs at the top labeled wireless networks , link status , site monitor , diagnostics and information.
2)Click on wireless networks tab and uncheck the first option which says , "Let this tool manage your wireless network" then click ok or apply at the bottom right-hand side corner of the screen.

To Enable Windows Utility for Windows XP follow these steps:-
1)Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
2)From Control Panel click on network and internet connections and then open network connections from there.
3)Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
4)
Click on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked , then check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings. Then click OK.
5)Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks.
6)
This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
7)If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key(which is the password for the wireless network) and then click connect.
8)Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wireless.
This Link will guide you through the steps:-

Cant connect to my wirelessmodem


Try running the cd that came with the router again, since you reinstalled windows, the configurations for the router have been lost. If this doesn't help let us know and we'll work on it from there.. good luck!

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

Unable to connect Acer Aspire 7250 to wireless broadband router (Netgear)


no the empower wireless connection programme is very good but can be turned off if you wish to use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration, which may be better to try and solve the problem, if you right click on the network icon on taskbar do you get the local and internet bubble or the triangle warning sign?

If no warning, click on the connect to a network command and see if the router appears there.

If not click set up aconnection or network at the bottom of the window, then click set up a wireless router or access pont and follow the wizard, or click manually set up if you are the braver type and will have a go

If you get a warning sign i suspect the pc is trying to connect to the wrong type of encryption eg WEP when you have set WPA-PSK or visa versa or a wrongly typed passkey
