    I just reinstalled my XP operating system and prior to this my router was installed and worked great. Now when I try to install the router, I get to the page where you power up the modem and then power up the router then click next...I get page can not be displayed. The first few times I got that page but had to quit application because I didn't know the information it requested. Now I have tried it 25 times with the above results.

Hi - dlund - is this a new router? If so, did you use the disk and follow the instructions? ( sorry, I have to ask?) Assuming everything is connected correctly, what's your machine make and model#? If it's a laptop is it a card you plugged in or did it come installed? Try this: Unplug your modem and router. After about 60 seconds plug in your modem. When all the lights come on(except the activity light) ,plug in your router. Give it ten seconds and try it. Also, is your router protected by a WPA or WEP key? Try these things, answer these questions, let me know. Thanks.

Jeff

We just bought an aspire one acer laptop. Trying to conect to a netgear router. Help!?


11_27_2011_2_59_33_am.gif
If you are trying to connect the computer to the router with a cable the above diagram should help to explain the simple broadband signal path from the Ethernet or telephone wall socket, to the router and from the router to the computer's RJ45/Ethernet port. Once the computer is connected to the router by a cable is connected to a telephone wall socket or a ERJ45/Ethernet wall socket that has a 'always on' broadband internet signal coming into it, nothing else is required -> launch the Web Browser.
If you are connecting wirelessly the wall socket to the router part of the setup is the same but no cable is required between the router and the computer.
Enable the wireless function in your netbook, click on the image of two computers bottom right near the clock -> view available networks/connect to network -> click on the appropriate Netgear router signal -> connect -> launch the Web Browser.

I have used the netgear wgr614 wireless router in unsecured mode to run two laptops for a couple of years now.... yes, I know that is stupid....now! So after a security breach, I realize I need to secure...


  1. Install the router. To install a Netgear wireless router, use an Ethernet cable to connect the router to the cable/DSL modem and use another Ethernet cable to connect the router to your computer. Make sure all of these devices are powered off as you connect them. Once connected, turn on the cable/DSL modem, the router, then the computer, in that order. Allow at least two minutes to pass after turning on each device to give the devices time to recognize one another.

  2. Log in to the router. Open a web browser and type in the router's address to load the router's settings page. The router's address can be found in the user guide or setup CD that came with your router, or you can download a user guide from Netgear's technical support page (see Resources). Most Netgear routers use one of the following addresses: http://192.168.1.1; http://www.routerlogin.net; or http://www.routerlogin.com. Press "Enter" or click "Go" in your web browser after you have entered the address.

  3. Enter the router's username and password. A prompt will appear on the screen when you enter your router's address, requiring you to enter a username and password before you can access the router's settings page. The default username for Netgear routers is "username" and the password is "password." Because the textboxes are case-sensitive, you must enter both of these using all lowercase letters. Press "Enter" to log in to the router and begin changing its security settings.

  4. Open the security settings menu. The router's home page has multiple links for changing settings. Find and click the "Security Settings" link to change the router's security settings.

  5. Change the SSID, choose an encryption setting and create a password. The default name (or "SSID") of your wireless network will be "NETGEAR." Enter a new, memorable name for your wireless network to help detract would-be hackers from trying to access your router, as most novice computer users with unsecure networks do not know how to change the default network name or institute any other security features. Newer Netgear routers offer WPA or WPA-PSK encryption to secure your network, both of which provide high levels of security. Select either of these. encryption types and create a unique password. This will require all users to enter the password before they can log in to your wireless network. It is important that you create a complex password that has several characters, including numbers. Once you have created a password, click "Confirm Password" to save it. To exit the security settings menu and log off of the router, click "Save" or "Apply" to save the changes you made, then click "Logout" to exit the router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Netgear wgt624 does not recognize my ethernet wired connection to the internet. It tell me the cable connection is missing. What goes?


1. check your cable. It should be a "straight through cable".
2. Unplug the router for 1 minute and then power it again.
3. Call your ISP to check the status of the connection (verify).
4. check the manufacturer for firmware updates for your model router.

Netgear software, picks up wireless network then loses connection moments later


Netgear generally functions well. You may simply need to adjust the location of the router. Check the signal strength when you do have a signal. You may be losing a signal intermittently because the signal is weak. If your signal is "good" or better and the signal is lost without apparent reason, there could be a malfunction with the router itself. Check the router when the signal is lost and ensure the power light is on and the connection light is on.

If your signal is weak and you lose it intermittently, adjust the location of the router

If your signal is strong and you lose it intermittently, you may be experiencing a connection problem at the source or the power may be cutting out at the modem. The more likely answer is the source signal interruption. It is rare for a power supply to go bad in those.

Check the source connection INTO the router.

You can also reset the router. You'll want to unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the wall AND from the modem and leave it unplugged for at least 2 minutes. There may also be a very small recessed reset button (the kind that you need to use the end of a paperclip to press). Press and hold that for 10-30 seconds to reset while it's still plugged in.

When you plug everything back in, plug the power in first (to the wall and modem), then connect the source cable. Wait until you have a signal confirmation light, then try to connect with your computer.

Last but not least, the connection problem could be with your computer. Try pluging directly into the source if possible and see how that works. Then try just moving close to the wireless modem and see how the signal strength is and if you lose the signal the same way. If there is a switch on your computer to turn on the wireless feature, make sure it's all the way on. Sometimes these are kind of stuck between 'on' and 'off' and that can cause problems.

I hope one of these suggestions helps you!

I got a new router (Netgear W..8.)for my home


try puuting the wireless access point on the middle and atleast 5 ft of the ground this will increase your signal slightly also make sure that there is no cordless phone especially the base near the wireless access point.

Conecting netgar wpn824v2 to cable internet


what exactly do you plug directly in the wall? what kind of connector does it use? an 'f' connector on a coax cable or RJ45 (like a phone plug? if you are using a cable connection you have to have a modem for that to work. if you are using a Ethernet cable tied directly to a jack on the wall you'll have to be sure routers are allowed to connect. or register the router with your provider. be sure your wireless router is getting an address form the internet provider. with out more details i can't give you any more specifics.

-good luck-
