Question about NetGear WNDR3300 - RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router

1 Answer

I unplugged my router (used as a wireless repeater) to plug it into a surge protector and it will not reset manually. The blue light on the top is on solid (not flashing like before) and the numbers 1-4 are lit up like there are ethernet cables plugged in (there are not). Any thoughts?

A client of mine had a similar problem. Apparently she had accidentally plugged her modem's power cable into the back of the router and the power cable for the router into the modem. Worked like a charm once the cords were switched.

Why are the display lights still flashing even after hitting reset?


You may need to call your service provider to reset it. Try unplugging it completely then waiting for a minute or so then plug it back in and see what happens. If no better then call your provider because they may need to reset your account. Hope this helps

My cable light dont blink


Turn off your modem (unplug it from the wall or surge protector).

Once you have done this, wait for at least ten seconds, if not one full minute. (This allows the modem to reset itself)

Plug the modem back into the wall or surge protector.

The modem will begin its start-up sequence and finally it should respond with a "blinking" connectivity light.

If you have a wireless or wired router connected to your modem you must make certain that you follow the next steps, or the router may not work to provide you with an Internet connection.

1. Unplug the Modem.
2. Unplug the Router.
3. Wait for one full minute.
4. Plug the Modem back in to the wall or surge protector.
5 Wait for the modem to complete its start-up sequence.
6. Plug in the router. (if you plugged in the router the same time you plugged in your modem, start at step #1 and try again...)
7. Wait for the router to finish its start-up sequence.
8. Test the connectivity to the Internet.

If this does not work, please add some clarification as to what service provider you are using, the type of modem/brand, and if you have a router...

Power light keeps flashing


Normally power light on router is stable solid Green! If you notice the power light is flashing its better to use surge protector! Also try to power off once and wait for a minute or two and power on again. Its always better to use electricity surge protector for all computer equipment!

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...


Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

You must have had a serious surge. Sounds like it's fried.
Use it as a door stop and buy a new one.
Sorry...

For future, while you're shopping for router, get a powerstrip surge protector and plug PC, monitor and router through it.

Wirelessrouterstepbystep learn howto setup


1
Choose your equipment wisely. There are many types of wireless routers, and they are not all created equal. Some of the lower end wireless routers are very basic, and will limit your home network to speed of 56 megabits per second (Mbps.) This is really not a very fast speed. If your access points will be very far apart, consider getting a router with ultra-range abilities, or a dual-band router. Also, while you're at the store, be sure to pick up one wireless access point for each computer you intend to connect to your network.

2
Remove your DSL or cable modem from the power supply.

3
Remove the Ethernet cable which connects your DSL or cable modem to your computer from the computer, but leave it plugged into the back of your modem. This cable looks something like a phone cord on the ends, but with much larger connectors and a larger, round cable. Do not remove the phone cord from the modem which is plugged into the telephone jack on your wall.

4
Connect the loose end of the Ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of your router. This port should be clearly marked, and will probably be a different color than the other ports.

5
Reconnect your modem to the power source. To protect it, plug it into the same surge protector which guards your computer.

6
Plug the Ethernet cable which came with your router into the Ethernet connector on the network card on the back of your computer. Then plug the other end into one of the Ethernet network ports on the back of the router.

7
Plug the router's power cord into the power supply. This device should also be protected by a surge protector. If you run out of plugs, it is well worth ten or twenty dollars to invest in a second surge protector.

8
Check the lights on the front or top of your router. The power light should be on, as well as the internet light, the wireless light, the security light, and a light for one of your Ethernet network connections. Check to see if any lights are off, flashing, or red or amber in color. This will indicate that the router is having a problem. If any lights are not on as they should be, check your cable connections to ensure that they are securely connected. Repeat the setup steps if necessary.

9
Install the software provided by your wireless router's manufacturer.
This is it you are done
Thanks .

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet.
