Cant get signal thru hardwire router to work consistantly. i have a new NetGear WNR3500L that I just installed today that is working great for wireless connection. I have a Netgear FS105 switch downstream from the WNR3500 to split the hard wire to 4 other units in the house. When I turn off the wireless card for my laptop and switch to a hard wire i get no connection. Although the status of the card indicates connected w/100mbps. I then select "repair" to renew ip addressand i get connection - but I don;t want to have to do this eadh time. Any solutions? Running XPpro, Symantic Anti-Virus current, INtel 82577LM Gig Network Card, Intel CentrinobUltimate N 6300 wireless card.

    This is not my area of expertise. Need some more details. Can you explain further how to do this? I'm not sure whether you mean to change to static on the laptop (and other downstream connecting units) or what.



    My ISP is Charter. Not sure if they continuously chnage their ip or not. But is they change it, wont this affect my changing to static?

    I just found this link with instructions on how to set DHCP with static ip. Is this the steps I need to take? Please advise. Thx.

    Thank you.



    Two things:



    1. I performed the steps you suggested, then went back to wireless connection and then back to hard line and the same thing happens - no internet connections yet the LAN icon indicates I am connected.



    2. Doesn't the Internet service provider (Charter) change their ip address and thus the static would change as well?

I'm assuming that you disconnect from the wireless router before attempting to use the LAN, otherwise the laptop would still have the IP it got from the router thru the wireless link - the only way to change that is to do a Repair on the LAN, as you do now.
This happens because the LAN settings in the router aren't set to automatic. No, your ISP has nothing to do with that, the connection between it and the router is on and correctly functioning: the problem is between your pc and the router. If you set separate static addresses for the wireless and the LAN thru the DHCP settings as explained in the manual (the link you found is a hack that is done when the pc is connected directly to the ISP, not your case) then it will be automatically recognized

Well is your system configured with DHCP, you could set your laptops IP to static. check and find out which one is being assigned Dynamically, use the same for the static setting. all should be ok. you may post back if need more assistance.

    no you donit have to change any of your providers settings. your router already has those configurations and the changes we make are on the LAN part.. that is why your switch is able to split to more than 1 device.. yet each device has a unique IP address... that is the logic. your provider gives you 1 IP address, the router uses that on the WAN side and allows us to have many on the LAN part. so what you need to do, on your laptop, double click the connection icon on the system tray,(normally an icon of two monitors), click on support then details. note down the - IP address, Default gateway address, and the DNS servers. then, close, on the remaining tab, click on General, go down to TCP/IP, click properties, and choose to "use the following IP address". Insert in those details. that is setting them statically. and click finish/close to save the settings. thats all.
    Please note that in these instructions, i have assumed you have an Xp OS. ( you didn't mention any ). but you can easily get other details on how to do this on other OS's.

    Regards

Not having defined the problem very well it is hard to answer.
  1. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will reset to factory defaults.
  2. Check on the manufacturers website for a firmware update.
  3. Buy a new router.

How do I restore factory settings for a wnr3500L?


You can reset your Netgear router/wireless router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.


Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

Just purchased new xbox. Xbox live was working fine when hardwired, but computer and xbox will not work thru wireless. It finds the router, but when I try to open the internet or connect to xbox live it...


I had a similar problem a while back with a netgear gateway. All four ethernet ports on the back worked but it wouldn't work with wifi. I had taken it apart and found that the antenna solder point had came loose. If the antenna isn't hooked up it won't send out a signal. Mine broke because it fell off of the back of my tv

I have comcast for internet, will the NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit Router with USB WNR3500L work for comcast?


Of course it will. I have comcast cable internet but don't forget, you will need a cable modem to access cable internet and then you can use any router for networking including WNR3500L.

I tried to reset my security password and now it won't work.


Make sure you have the physical connection connected properly.

-Modem should be connected to the Internet/WAN port of the router.
-Your laptop must be connected to port 1 of the router as well.
-Make sure you can go online hardwired to the router.

Then configure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router setup page http://192.168.2.1, change the wireless settings.
