Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

3 Answers

Netgear Firewall Hi I have a Virgin cable internet connection and have installed a Netgear RangeMax WPN824v2 for the wireless connection on my laptop. I believe the built in firewall on the router is clashing with the Virgin PC guard causing the internet access and site opening to be very slow. If I disconnect the Netgear and connect direct to the cable modem the speed is fine. Can I disconent the firewall in the Netgear?

Hi,
with the router connected, open the internet explore and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar and press enter.

enter the user name and password for the router.(by defaullt user name is admin and password is password).

u can find the blue scrren in left, in that click on the option "Wan ip set up". In that window by default first check box will be checked. Please check the box for the second option "disable SPI firewall". this will deactivate the firewall on the router.

Also in the same page You can find the option MTU size, by default it will 1500. change it to 1400 and click on apply.

check the internet connection whwther it is faster or not.

hope this helps..

I have NetGear RangeMax WPN824. I work from home and need access to my desktop at work . I go thru Kaseya to access my desktop at work. I continue to get the same error: "Unable to connecto the KServer@216.186.253.12 on Port 5721. Check firewall, router or proxy server is allowing outbount TCP connection to 216.186.253.12 on port 5721."
Is port 5721 associated with the rangemax WPN824? If so how can I enable this.

With the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.

I just bought a Sony Bravia TV and am trying to connect it to the internet via my WPN824v2 LAN - it's not working and the LAN lights never light up on my router. Wireless connections are fine - even new...


I spent the last day trying to solve this, what worked was:

Home
Settings
Network
Refresh Internet Content
Wait (a while) until it Authenticates

Normal Internet service resumed :-)

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

How do i hook this router up wpn824v2


Your router is connected between your modem (Cable or DSL) and your computer. Connect the modem output to the WAN or Internet connector on your router. Connect any of the output connectors to your computer's Network Input. Log in to the router by (with your Browser) going to 192.168.1.1 ... after logging to router (login parameters in manual) set your Network Name (SSID) and set up Wireless security. I prefer using WPS-PSK[TKIP] for its ease of setup.

Rangemax-internet only works when comp directly connected via LAN


it sounds like you have the wireless connection to the WAN disabled. Go through the wireless settings on the router and check to make sure it's not being blocked from the WAN/Internet connection.
