SOURCE: Wireless Network Dropping Out- NetGear WPN824 V.2 & Atheros AR5006EXS Wireless Network Adapter

Fergus,

Steps to troubleshoot are as follows.

1. check the physical connections. Go to a broadband testing site to see if you are connecting correctly b/c i am assuming you are wanting to connect to the internet. if not see next step. A common problem with internet connections is the timeout setttings on netgear you should set it to 0 for indefinite.

2. if your problem is related to just the connection between your pc and your router then you should just plug a lan cable in first to see if you can connect to the router without dropouts. This will help you to determine if the problem is with the router.

3. If it is the router then you need to double check your router configurations. Common problems are firewall rules, port forwarding settings etc etc.

4. if it is not the router then double check that the pc and the network card is working properly. If it is then make sure the the wireless adapter support the protocl eg. wep, wpa, wpatsk etc..make sure they are the same and that you should be setting the network key.

5. one final check is you need to turn off some of the rangemax functionality on the router b/c your wireless adaptor probably doesnt support it. try unsecure connections for a while to see if it works then start adding functionality to determine which one is the culprit.

I hope this help.

smeags.

SOURCE: How do I find my version of netgear wireless

You will need to actually login to the router, usually the ip address is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

Type that address into the address bar of internet explorer.

Usually the usernaem and password is some type of combination of admin and password

Or try admin and no password, etc.

Once logged in there should be a main status page that shows up and will dispaly the router's firmware version

Hope this helps!

Signal remains low but speed slightly increases when light are double blue lite


The top light should be blue if set up correctly and the bottom light should blink blue because it is an activity light. Sounds like you are just having a signal strength issue and you may be able to find a better location to improve reception.

LED Display gives you your display visual alerts, signal strength, and operation mode. Here is an attached link for the manual.....http://www.uniden.com/pdf/LRD6399SWSom.pdf
But to answer your question here is what the difference between the green light and the red light are:
1. X-Band Signal Indicator—A green LED lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of an X-band radar signal. The blink rate
increases as the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is
also heard.
2. K-Band Indicator— An amber (orange) LED lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of a K-band radar. The blink rate increases as
the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is also heard.
3. Ka-SuperWideband Signal Indicator— A yellow LED lights and
blinks to indicate the presence of a Ka-SuperWideband radar
signal. The blink rate increases as the radar source gets closer. A
distinct audio alert is also heard.
4. Laser Signal Indicator— A red LED under L lights and blinks to
indicate the presence of a laser signal. A distinct audio alert is also
heard.
5. SWS Signal Indicator— When an early warning hazard or
informational signal is detected, the yellow SWS LED begins to
blink and the amber K-band LED lights. A distinct audio alert is
also heard.
6. Power-On Indicator— A green LED under P lights to indicate
power is being supplied to the unit and the unit is turned on.
7. LED Signal Strength Meter—Four LEDs give an accurate visual
indication of the strength of radar or laser signals.
8. City Mode Indicator—A green LED under C lights to indicate
that you selected City Mode.
9. Auto Mute Indicator— A red LED under M lights to indicate that
you selected the Auto Mute feature.

Please make sure you give me a rating and I hope this helps,
