Well, I can tell you that. Just provide the serial number of your router and I can look up the records at NETGEAR for you.

How do I find my version of netgear wireless router? I know its WPN824


You will need to actually login to the router, usually the ip address is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

Type that address into the address bar of internet explorer.

Usually the usernaem and password is some type of combination of admin and password

Or try admin and no password, etc.

Once logged in there should be a main status page that shows up and will dispaly the router's firmware version

Hope this helps!

Power light keeps blinking and cannot log into WPN824 router


Firmware upgrade is very important. You have to make sure that you were able to do it properly.

You have to do a hard reset on the router. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is turned on. Try to see if your computer is able to get a valid IP address. If not, set up a static IP address on the computer and see if you can ping the router, if not then the router has gone bad.

You have to replace it.

Yes, both Playstation 2 Online and Xbox Live have been tested and are known to work with both game consoles online. Do make sure that you are using the latest version of the routers firmware. To get the latest version go to http://networking.belkin.com and click on Firmware. Make sure you download both the firmware and the instructions on how to update the router. If you are already running the latest version then you do not need to perform another upgrade. To check to see if you have the latest firmware version open a web browser and type 192.168.2.1 into the address bar. Log into the router as instructed in the user manual. Once logged in choose Utilities over to the left and the choose Upgrade Firmware. It will tell you the current firmware version in there. If it is V1.20 or higher then you are OK.
