Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

Hi - I have the NETGEAR wireless router, but I cannot get my laptop connected, I keep getting the 'wireless network unavailable' the router was installed by Best Buy's Geek squad (in 2006) and this is the first rime I have had a problem, I looked under programs and did not see a program so I am not sure if I should have an Icon - which I do not - do I need to reload the software from the CD?

    What type of wireless adapter/recievers are you using on the laptop(built-in or a PCMCIA/USB adapter)?



    Check if the wireless/WLAN LED is lighted up on the router if not there is a great possibility that the wireless broadcast had been disabled.

Wireless Router to Computer connection problem


Look underneath the bottom of the laptop. HP is known for putting the wireless toggle switch under the laptop, to keep it out of the way. But that also keeps people from finding the switch to wireless, from wired.
I'd bet your laptop works if plugged into the network with an RJ45 cable.

Can't connect to netwoork


Just configure the wireless settings your laptop. Go to Network Connections > Right-click on Wireless Network > Properties. Go to Wireless Network tab and look for Preferred Networks. Just remove all of them and click OK.

Now, On the Network Connections, right-click on Wireless Network Connection > View Available Wireless Networks. Connect to your own wireless network and enter your wireless network key if it tells you to type it. That should fix your wireless connection. Now if your wireless network is not showing, you need to change the wireless channel of your router by accessing the router's setup page using your wired computer.

Cannot get wireless connection through router


Hi MistiShay,

You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.

Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.
