In an open Internet Explorer window, in the address bar type "192.168.1.1" or you may have to type in whatever your gateway is for your router. This should prompt you for user name and password. typically if you haven't changed these before they should be admin for both or admin for user name and the word "password" for the password. That should open the setting of the router. Under the wireless tab therer will be a spot for you to type an SSID, and a button for you to checkmark if you want the SSID to be broadcast. This will be where you will change the name of your router. If that doesn't work or you are unable to get to the settings of your router let me know and I can give you directions to finding your gateway.

My router did not come with any software do i need it because i cannot get mine to work


Please reset the router by placing a pin in reset hole and push the pin sslightly, (remember you need to do this when the rrouter is in ON state)
Then connect your router to your computer using ethernet port (this is for configuration) and also connect the ADSL cable.

now open internet explorer and type in //192.168.1.1
Then it will prompt you for username and password
Username: admin
Passsword: password
this username and password is by default.

then configure your router as you need by changing display name, password authentication, MAC registration etc...

If you face problem with connecting internet even following the above steps, then you need to contact ISP(internet service provider) for settings.

Thanks,

How i get my netgear name and webkey i had it wrote down but lost it?


The only way to recover a password is to reset the router to Factory Default.

To do this:

Use a paper clip or something small and hold the reset button on the back for 10-12 seconds. (WARNING! this will remove all settings and bring it back to the factory default, you will have to re-configure the router.)

Once defaulted, enter admin for the username and password for the password.

Lost security code for D link wireless router


usually your notebook should connect itself as the password would already be set up in the connections properties.

 

If you know how to get into the wireless routers settings, go to the security menu and turn off the security encryption (wep or WPA PSK) and then use a different password when you turn security back on again.

 

Or make sure you have the settings for your isp and press the reset button on the back to delete all the settings

Macintoshes and Print Servers, the PS110 in Particular


Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-Post Script printers with the Mac and the PS110.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer you will be using with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Utilities > Print Center in the MacOS 10.2 Applications folder. The Printer List appears. 6. Click Add. The Printer Selection window appears. 7. From the top of the Printer Selection window, select AppleTalk from the first pull down menu. 8. Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10. Click the pull down Printer Model, and select the model of printer connected to your Print Server. A list of printers displays. 11. From the scrolling list select the Model Name of the printer connected to your Print Server. 12. Click Add. 13. Printer List displays with the list of printers and print servers connected to your Mac. Select the name of the Print Server from the Printer List. 14. Click Make Default. 15. Close the Printer List. 16. Open a file and try printing it. You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet.
