Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

1 Answer

Range and power

Installation went fine on both new Toshiba laptop and Compaq desktop to replace std Linksys router but no range or signal power. It works fine but not as strong as old system. It won't even give excellent indication when in same room! Certainly not up to 10 times the power as advertised. In same location with same power as previous system, Just wanted more signal to support my portable computer. Please advise?

My WRT54G2 worked this morning, but not this afternoon.

Range is very poor


You need to change the wireless channel of the router. Access the router's setup page through http://192.168.1.1, no username, password is admin. Go to wireless tab, Select Manual Setup, change the Radio band from auto to Wide Range. Also change the Wireless network name to a different name then click on save settings at the bottom. Power cycle the router, unplug it for about 30 sec then plug it back in.

I cannot connect with linksys wireless router


From your description, you appear to be connected to the router fine.

Try powering down the modem from Comcast for about 2 minutes then power it back up. If it doesn't come back, call Comcast service as it is likely on their end.

Hope this helps.

I have a HPPavillion laptop with built in wireless. Is there anything I can buy to strenghten my signal to a wireless router.


No , thers nothing to boost the PC unless you go with a wireless N card, BUT, there IS equiptment for boosting the signal from your router and it will depend on which router you have.
Since you didnt post the make and madel of your laptop or router , this is just going to be a general fix.
Go to Yahoo, google, ETC. Search for "xxxxxx wireless signal booster ". xxxxxx being the make of router you are using now.
For example, i searched linksysy and found one for linksys: http://www.bizrate.com/networkingproducts/linksys-wireless-g-range-expander-router-wireless-signal-booster--pid11678449/index__kw--wireless+g+booster__qcid--1402153.html

Broadband router range


If you have wireless N router. You should install wireless N adapter on your children's computers as well. That way, they are compatible with each other coz I guess your children's PC has wireless G adapters. You wont be able to utilize the N signal of the router if your using wireless adapters..

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
