Net Gear Range Max Dual Band Wireless Router

If I bought this Router would I have to buy an "N" card for my computer upstairs. I would have the Router plugged in downstairs. Right now I am having trouble getting the internet upstairs. I have a G card and people seem to think I need an N card. I see you have the N router for sale. I thought I might just need a longer antenna for the G card. Any suggestions would be helpful. both computers are desktops and I am dealing with flourescent lighting in between the floors.

Thanks Pat

If you really wanna use the so called wireless "N" technology you need to have a wireless N card for your pc so the wireless N technology will be working on your network since you're saying that you already have a wireless N router, because you will just only use a longer antenna your wireless pc will still be running on wireless G technology.

We had a power outage and now my netgear router is not working exede said my firm wear needs updated how do i do that have called net gear 5 times and keep getting the runaround. i bought the router l


Hi
Do you mean it doesn't power on or won't connect to the internet?
If it powers on OK do the lights flash as described in the manual
If the router worked before why should you need new firmware, doesn't make sense.

Cant connect to a new labtop


1, You should always secure your Wireless. 2, try different channels, setup the dual-bands as 2 SSID, 1-2.4 and the other as 5.0 with diferent channels. I would suspect it's the laptop, Disable the UAC and the Anti Virus. Is the wireless adapter, on the laptop turned on? Do you see the Wireless listed in Available Wireless Networks?

Upgraded internet speeds. with direct communication modem to computer get DL speeds 36 and UL speeds 6.35. when go wireless and use router speeds drop to 7+ and 4+. is there new software/firmware update...


Max wireless speed on that router is 11Mbps theoretical. That is an ancient router. Buy a new router N standard You will get the same wired or wireless. N standard with triple band will run at 480Mbps, dual at about 300Mbps and single at 150Mbps.

I want to set up my wifi dvd player to one of the wifi connections and leave the other for my lap top. don't know how to use both of the wifi connections.


This is NOT a DVD player. The Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router WNDR3300 features a rather misleading name. The router doesn't support true dual-band wireless-N, nor does it offer very good range. It's a basic router with two separate access points (AP), one of which supports Wireless-N and can operate in either 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequencies--similar to the D-Link DGL-4500--while the other is a regular 802.11G 2.4GHz-only AP. The result is that when in dual-band mode the router is able to offer Wireless-N only in the 5Ghz frequency, while the 2.4Ghz frequency is maxed out at the 802.11G speed. Still, if you have a growing stable of 5Ghz-based devices and want a router that supports both frequencies, the WNDR3300 is the cheapest router on the market (at about $100) that will suit your needs.

While its max throughput is relatively low, the router offered very consistent and considerably high throughput speeds on both our mixed-mode and long-range throughput tests. Unfortunately, its range is possibly the shortest among Wireless-N routers. If range is not important to you and your network primarily consists of 5GHz-based clients, the WNDR330 is a good bet. Otherwise, for the same price, we'd recommend the 2.4GHz-only Linksys WRT310N; or you can pay $50 more for the true dual-band Linksys WRT610n.

Switched my modem from a net gear to a 2-wire and the range will not allow me to use my upstairs laptop on the wireless signal. How do I plug my netgear into the 2 wire to extend the range?


i needed to do this once i think i disabled the dhcp on the what would be your netgear router and plugged a cable from the other router into that. I think thats how i got around that problem as i was using an adsl router at the time. try it cant do any harm

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.
