Netgear rangemax wireless router wpn824 how do you connect it and do i need a modem?


You need a modem. Without one you can't use a router. A router transmits an existing netwrok signal wirelessly. Without a source such as a modem from a cable provider a router can't function.

Upgrade the Firmware of the router :
First you should check the version of you WPN824 (v1,v2 or v3). If there are no Version after the model number, it should be a version 1. Download the Firmware of your router given the correct version at this link :

This is assuming that other wireless laptops has the same problem onyour wireless router. If other Laptops works great on your wirelessrouter without dropping any wireless connection, then you shouldconsider upgrading the wireless adapter on you own laptop.

***(If you haven't tried connecting otherwireless laptop wirelessly to the netgear, then you should try it firstto be sure that the netgear is the problem)

Wireless connection to netgear Rangemax Wireless router, see's router but won't connect?


Check your router to see if the DHCP server is enabled. If not, then either enable that, or manually assign your wireless network card an IP etc.

Also check the router to see if it is set to have access restrictions like mac address filtering. Even with the right IP setup on your wireless card, you will still need to be authorised in the mac address list of the router to gain access.

If you don't have another computer there, or a lan cable to connect to the router, then do a reset to default and it should have most if not all of the security features off and the DHCP server on.

WG511T network card problem


WEP and WAP mmmmmm.
So WEP is Wireless Encryption Protocol and WAP is Wireless Application Protocol. WAP is used in cell phones so i am presuming you actually mean WPA?
If so....
The wg511t provides the highest available level of industry standard 128-bit WEP encryption, and it’s
upgradable to Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security.
Here are the instructions to enable WPA.
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101675.asp
WPA is set from the router so if it is not supported on the router it is not supported on your card.
It is router dependant.
What router do you have.
Let me know if this is helpful at all.
