Question about SMC (SMCWBR14-G2) Router

Open Question

Wireless connection drops when browsing or downloading. If i don't do anything (no browsing and no downloading) the wireless network connection remains. When the connection is dropped during browsing the internet, i need to restart the router and the connection will be established and remains until you have browsed to a couple of pages or downloaded a file or e-mail. What can cause this problem?

If you're having troubles accessing a single website, it's possible something changed your hosts file to redirect you to another site. Tell me if you're using a Mac, or a Windows PC (and what version) and i'll show you how to check it.

I will advise you to configure the WEP encryption using your router before connecting using your IPOD.

Note: IPOD support WEP encryption. Check the network connection if the Internet is working properly.

I am using Linksys Wireless- N (wrt120) and my download speed seems to work great but when I browse the internet my pages won't load. Sometimes they will load very slowly. It seems like the connection

There may be competing wireless routers or networks nearby on the same band. Within the router's interface, try switching to a different band (2.4 Ghz vs. 5.0 Ghz) or use different radio channels. By default the router will attempt to do this automatically, but you may want to try adjusting them yourself and see what you get.

To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

You are probably right. Your laptop is not playing well with others.
First check to see if your wireless adapter on your laptop is turned on.
Then click the icon that controls the wireless connections to see if you can see your network. If you can, click on the network name and see if you can log on.
Next, temporarily turn off any internet security programs you have to see if you are experiencing a firewall issue. Check to see if Windows firewall is turned on for the wireless connection. If so, turn it off until you connect.

Connected to wireless network, but cant browse internet.

I think there might be lost in the packet sending.
You said the PC is still connected to the network but not able to go online.
Is there any other wireless computer which is able to go online wirelessly and working fine.
If yes then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter.
If not then check the router wireless settings.

Connected but can't browse

Did you mean you are connected to the wireless network but not able to go online?
If you are connected to the wireless network then check the IP address on the computer. It should be a private IP address.

Secured Wireless is better than a unsecured one. Configuring a secured wireless network easy.
· First Check it the Wireless is turned on in the modem.
You must see the wireless light glow on.
Wireless LAN (WLAN) should be Enabled before configuring the wireless network
· To make sure, if the WLAN is enabled you can check the WLAN light glow.
· If it is off, then you can be sure that WLAN is disabled.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.
