Question about NetGear RangeMax Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch

1 Answer

Wireless connection picks up all connections even though i have a WEP password.

I have set up my wireless connection to have a WEP key but as soon as i turn on my xbox or ps3 or my laptop it automatically connects to my wireless router and no password is required. My settings for the WEP key was saved but everything connects directly and i have never need to enter the password not even when i first set up the whole thing. how can i lock it so that only my items can go online and not my neighbors or friends unless they use my password (if i want to give it to them).????? pls help.

I forgot my WEP key for my ps3


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

1st make sure that your using the proper WEP key (Wireless Password) 2nd make sure that their wirelessly compatible SW is a wireless b compatible to eliminate this issue you may also disable your WEP

I cannot connect to my wireless internet. it will find the signal but it will not connect to it. but if i used it somewhere else that has a wireless connection it will connect.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

What's the difference between WEP and WPA? What should I pick?


WEP is a weak securtiy protocol that is outdated and can be easily broken

WPA is a newer security protocol that is much harder to break with AES encryption

WPA is always recommended mode for operation over WEP.

Use WPA2 which is latest version if it is supported by device.

My netgear wireless router has been installed and we can see the wireless connection on our laptops but when it asks us for a password we don't know it-is it the Lan ip or wan ip or is it another password...


I think its asking for the wireless encryption key (WEP) which you will see somewhere on the router itself or you might have to open the router page and check the wireless network settings check for WEP - Password

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For know your security key Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
The old password is in * or # format so you need to enter new password.

Secure wireless connection with WEP but still picks up all wireless connections


If the unit has WAP as an option, use that instead of WEP. If enabling this still does not prompt you for a key, or you don't have this option, check here to make sure you have configured it properly... http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101675.asp

If that doesn't help, check this firmware page and upgrade... http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d103242.asp

Hope this helps! : )
