Question about NetGear DG834PN Router (DG834PNAU)

Open Question

Hi! my problem with DG834PN is about disconnection. The wireless, and so the router connection, randomly disappears, and the only way to get it back is to switch off the power supply and on again. If i try to get back the connection from 192.168.0.1 control panel, there is no way to Inizialize LCP again... it's like dead! I tried different security encryption, MUD level, SIP firewall, etc... the firmware is updated, and so on, but the problem of random disconnections still persists. What do i have to do?! Thanks, Daniele

Somtimes thats enough....

Try moving the router and changing the angles of the antenna to see if you can get stronger signal strength...

I have NetGear RangeMax WPN824. I work from home and need access to my desktop at work . I go thru Kaseya to access my desktop at work. I continue to get the same error: "Unable to connecto the KServer@216.186.253.12 on Port 5721. Check firewall, router or proxy server is allowing outbount TCP connection to 216.186.253.12 on port 5721."
Is port 5721 associated with the rangemax WPN824? If so how can I enable this.

SOURCE: The Wireless Signal keeps dropping out.

make sure that there are no cordless or wireless devices near the router such as a cordless phone since that will interfere with the wireless signal and a cause for frequent disconnection.

otherwise, the device should be replaced already.

SOURCE: I keep losing my wireless connection.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

Need my USB sprint card to connect with my wireless G router


Well - you are mixing up two different kind of wireless networks.
Your sprint card connects to the same network a cell phone connects to (EV-DO technology), while your local network at home uses a different technology (802.11).
What you need in order to connect to your Linksys router is a USB adapter like this.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Router randomly stops sending out wireless signal


You may be getting interference from other routers in your area.
Check to see what channels the other routers are broadcasting in your area, change it to a channel that is not being used.
The location of the router could affect the signal strength, move the router away from concrete reinforced walls etc, and or move the router to a higher position in a clear space.

Wirless going down randomly


Hello ajestrella,

If your connection is a DSL, I think you need a "Micro Filter" to be connected to your phone lines. This will eliminate the disconnection or unwanted signals that causes you network to go off or disconnected. You can request this device from your telephone company.
