Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

Testing my RangeMax WPN824

Is there a way to test whether my WPN824 is working? Electrically it seems to be fine (the lights are flashing), but I'm having trouble reinstalling it. It worked fine on Wed, then we had a flood, and everything was hastily unplugged. I've followed all the directions, checked the ethernet cables, and now I'm wondering if the wireless router is still functional. How do I test it? (Just to make sure: if I connect the cable modem directly to the computer, I have a connection. But if I connect the WPN824 to the cable modem (in the internet slot) and then connect the computer to a slot in the WPN824 nothing happens). Am I doing something wrong? KBH

Hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
There is a possibility that the router setting might set back to its default settings. you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on

Netgear rangemax wpn824 incorrecty or won't detect wireless conn.


Check ISP configuration to match Router settings with your supplier requirements.
Your issue seems related with wrong settings on Router WAN configuration.
Check if DHCP is required on your router or if it has tio be configured as a BRIDGE.
Your ISP should be ready to support you. (Or Netgear)
