Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm trying to set up my mac to a netgear wireless router (for which I'm using the USB stick). However, the disc keeps ejecting and the method I used to set up the wireless router originally doesn't seem to be working.. We've set up a username and password for the network (which I know), but if I type in the address on the bottom of the router it asks me for a name and password for WGT624v3. Thanks!

    The model is WGT624 v3, same as the password it's asking me for...

  • ah504 Apr 29, 2008

    I'm trying to connect to the router, and yes I'm typing the numbers into the internet browser page. I've spoken to someone else and they said they had a feeling that my Mac wouldn't support a USB dongle with wireless as I dont have a Mac with integrated wireless card.

    'Sorry cant help there. Anything usb requires drivers (software
    installed to act as a communication interface between you and the
    computer) Apple have included may drivers in the operating system as
    standard but some devices slip through the net.
    Maybe someone else will know, be prepared to wait a few hours/days for an answer.
    As
    an aside' it is unusual for the included cd to not have a mac set-up
    for these devices, unless they just dont work with a mac. Someone will
    know I'm sure.'

    Any ideas?

    The number on the dongle is WGT 111T.

    Ok so are you tryinig to reinstall the router drivers and tools onto your computer and reset the whole router? Or are you just trying to connect to the router? Also when you say you are tying to connect by putting in the address on the bottom of the router, are you typing the numbers on the bottom of the router into your internet brouser page?

How to instal


Hi,
You'll wanna check out: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR1000_SM_WW_23Jan09.pdf
Look for "installation"..
To help you set up your router and get on the Internet quickly, the Resource CD contains a Smart Wizard™ Installation Assistant. The Installation Assistant walks you through the steps required to connect your router, modem, and PC(s); configure your wireless settings; and enable wireless security for your network. When you have finished, you will be Internet ready!
You can set up your wireless router using one of two methods:
• Smart Wizard Setup: The Smart Wizard Installation Assistant setup is available on your Resource CD. See "Installing Your Router Using the Smart Wizard" on page 9 to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant.
- This is the easiest option. The wizard guides you through the setup process. It automates many of the steps and verifies that the steps have been successfully completed.
- Smart Wizard requires a PC running Microsoft Windows.
• Manual Setup: If you cannot or prefer not to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant, see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13. For example, if you are connecting to a Mac, are using a Linux operating system, or are technically knowledgeable, select this option. If you choose to use this option and install your router manually, for best results, install and set up your router in this order:
Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or an inability to wirelessly connect to the Internet.
NETGEAR does not recommend or support adding a NETGEAR router behind another router, or replacing a gateway with a a NETGEAR router.
If you have a Macintosh or Linux system, you must use the manual installation method (see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13).Getting to Know Your Wireless Router 7
1. Install and connect your wireless router to your network (see "Connecting Your Wireless Router" on page 14).
2. Set up your wireless router for Internet access (see "Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access" on page 18).
3. Configure your wireless network and select wireless security settings to protect your wireless network (see "Configuring Your Wireless Network" on page 21)

SECURE N ROUTER


If you don't want people juming on your wireless network to surf for free, you need to lock it down with a password. You will need to log into the router to access the setup, and you can configure wireless security and create a password for your network. The following link describes how to do this, specifically step 5:

If I understand correctly you using MAC #s with your netgear router, you must find the mac address for that printer

1. if are given the printer a ip address type the ip address at the top of your web browser 192.167.0.0 example, they must display the mac address some where on the internal web page of the printer
2. Sometimes it is in the menu section of print itself under network connections.
3. added the MAC # under in internal web page of the netgear router

Only router can give you proper NAT settings that can allow you to play online. Since you have a USB internet stick, try to buy a USB to Ethernet converter first. Then you can now use a router
