Router If money was no option, which wireless router would you recommend? I'm willing to spend any amount of money. I just want the router that will be the best for me. I'm looking into the Netgear WNDR3300 router. Would this be a good one?

I ddont want to have a password any to my linksys router


You can turn off wireless encryption in the Linksys router. This is in the wireless settings.
If you turn off the encryption then your wireless router is open to anyone to use your Internet and access your network.
I recommend you do not allow this as it will cost you money when your Internet download limit is exceeded.

I have wiifi on my computer do i need a router


This is a very good question. The short answer is that you do need something to take your Internet signal coming into your home and broadcast it wirelessly. You have to options here:
1.) You can contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask if they have any modem/router combos. This would be one device which would serve as your modem AND wireless router. For example, AT&T has their "2Wire" (that's the brand name) modem, but it has full wired and wireless functionality. Setting up one device is much easier than configuring a modem and a separate wireless router for a few reasons. First, your ISP will walk you through the configuration of their device OR they may even send a tech to your home for the installation. Second, your ISP will generally NOT help you with a 3rd party device (ie. some wireless router you bought at Best Buy). Finally, when your network goes down - and it will someday - it is waaay easier to troubleshoot when you have the single device modem/router combo.
2.) Buying a wireless router would be your other option. This router would work WITH your existing modem. If you have DSL, the setup can be difficult if you're not experienced. If you have broadband/cable Internet, then it's a bit easier. In the latter case, you could just call the manufacturer of the router and ask them to help you set up your WIFI network (and secure it!) and they will usually help you free of charge.
In summary, I recommend going with a modem/wireless-router combo if you have DSL. If you have broadband/cable Internet, it probably doesn't matter. No matter which way you go, you will be spending between $60-80 (please don't spend more than $80. pretty please.) I hope this was helpful information. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to reply to this message.

How to use dual band on router?


You can only use it in the 2.4 ghz mode or the 5 ghz mode:

1. Log in to the Router by going to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com

and entering the default user name admin and default password password, or using whatever

LAN address and password you have set up.

2. Select Wireless Settings under Setup in the main menu to display the Wireless Settings

screen.

3. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate.

4. Set up the 2.4 GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode. The default is Auto. When Auto is

selected, the router finds the best operating channel available.

If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel.

Channels 1, 6, and 11 will not interfere with each other.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 145Mbps for 2.4GHz.

5. Select security options for the 2.4GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends

that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different

passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 2.4GHz wireless

network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK as

your security option.

6. Set up the 5GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR-5G.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode. The default channel is 36. If there is an

Auto option in the channel list and you select it, the router will find the best operating

channel available.

If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 300Mbps for 5GHz.

7. Select security options for the 5 GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends

that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different

passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 5 GHz wireless

network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK asyour security option.
8. Click Apply to save your changes.

How to tell your net gear router is no longer working correctly It connects to the internet throuigh the modem I am plugged into port # 4 and I have tried port # 1. At any given time I loose connection and...


HI jamesbigble. To see if I understood your problem correctly. You are using a computer thru a router. And the router is connected to a modem. After a while all the lights on the router are lit. And then you have to unplug it and plug it in again and it will work for a while right? Well, if that's the case, that's the router for sure, you need to replace it. If you see something like that happening to the modem, well the same answer for the modem. If any modem, router or switch have all the lights lit, it means some serious problem. Maybe hardware/power or firmware issue. In case you dont want to spend money, I would recommend go to the netgear website and download the latest firmware for your router and try it. I hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate and write positive feedback for our fast-free support today. Thank you :D

Hi there. You will find that all of the non-plunging routers will fit. I recommend that you buy the most powerful one you can find for the money you want to spend and one that has a 1/2 inch collet, or ideally both 1/2 and 1/4 inch collets. Enjoy your new router.
