First make sure that you can access internet through the router when connected to it wired. If yes, then please perform the steps below to configure settings:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) on a computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the username and password is case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.
6. Set the 'Authentication Type' as automatic.
7. Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.
9. Apply the settings.
10. Click on Wireless Settings under Advanced in the left hand side menu.
11.. Click on Setup Access List. Uncheck the option Turn Access Control on and click apply.

Scan for the wireless network on the computer with the wireless adapter and connect to your network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Instead of changing the NAT type, it is effective to forward ports on the router for your PS3. Perform the steps as mentioned in the below link:

I have 2 Westell modem/routers, one is a 7500 and the other is a 7550. I also have 2 netgear modem/routers WPN824, but currently using the 7500 for internet access. I am looking to extend my wireless...


its not to hard if you have a physical ethernet cord from point A to point B

Modem/Router ---ethernet cable--> 2nd router with dhcp off

as a bonus if you use the EXACT same SSID and password your wireless device will rome with no downtime switching networks
(oh.. very important to make certain they don't have the same IP. if main 1 is 192.168.1.1 then set the second to 192.168.1.2)

ta-da twice the network but all your devices think its all one

I have DSL/verizon,modem 6100F i keep loosing my internet connection


Your problem definitely sounds like an intermittent connection problem. It can either be one of two things. #1. You have a defective modem, or #2 It's a network problem. I will definitely go with #2. Here's the thing. The problem you have is very very very common not only to Verizon DSL customers, but also to other Internet Service Providers as well. The best way to fix the problem is to understand what's causing the problem. There are two types of intermittent connection problems. The first is Intermittent Sync. You'll know if you have this problem because the DSL light will be blinking everytime you get kicked out. That means there's no internet connection, The modem cannot detect and establish a connection with the Central Office. The second is Intermittent route (which I know is you're problem), The DSL light is steady, but the Internet light almost always turns OFF or turns RED. The only way to fix this problem is to coordinate with Verizon. The reason is because the problem is outside your house. The long cable lines, the drop wire, the cables that passes through from the Central Office to your House can all be damaged, If that's the case, then a technician is required to go out and fix the problem. Don't worry about calling Verizon, this is a network problem and you won't be charge for anything. I know losing internet connection is very frustrating. Give your ISP a chance, they will definitely fix the problem if you give them the opportunity to do so.

Netgear range max keeps dropping signal


Is it cable or DSL? Cable should be fine but DSL gets slower everytime a second or third connection is added.

Netgear wireless wpn824


Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear

If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.

Wpn 824 wireless issues.


if you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.
