SOURCE: Cannot configure D-Link DIR 625 wireless router

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

SOURCE: Netgear DGN2000: Only ethernet port 1 works.

Sounds like a configuration issue. With some routers you can set them up for bridging. Normally port 1 would connect your "bridge" and port 2-4 would connect your computers. You can test this by plugging your modem into port 1, and your computer in port 2. Power cycle your router and see if you get connectivity. It may be in your best benefit to reset the router to factory settings and see if 2-4 work with factory settings. After the reset, reconfigure the wireless side and your firewall.

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings


Symptoms:

  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface

Resolution:

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.

So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.

Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)

  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.

    If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.

  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers

To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.

For FR314, FR318, and FV318

These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.

Netgear DG836GT


OK. First, that dg836gt_1_02_09.img file does not seem to be a firmware file. You need to get a .zip file or a .bin file to upgrade the firmware. Check Netgear's website for the current firmware. If it is a .zip file, then you need to extract the .bin file from the .zip file with winzip software. Then, log into your router with Internet Explorer by typing it the routers IP address in the address bar like this http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Enter user name and password. Look for a tab that states software update. Browse for the .bin file you downloaded or extracted from the .zip and click update.

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.

Connecting to http://192.168.0.1


You need to use the desktop computer to access the Netgear page. Check the default gateway address of your desktop (this is the IP address of your Netgear). You may follow these steps if you don't know how to check the IP address of your desktop:

1. Go to the Command prompt or DOS prompt. Type in ipconfig and press enter. Check the Default Gateway address.

Wireless connection


JRSavage - The solution you supllied is to assign the IP address to the client. It appears Guest is asking how to log into the Router.

Guest - If the router is a wireless router then you should not have to know it's IP to connect to it, simply looks for it's SSID in WIndows Zero Config wireless util (or the util that came with your wireless adapter)

If you're connected and looking how to log into the router itself you'll want to enter the router's IP address into the address bar of your internet browser.

If you're looking for where you enter the router's IP for NIC configuration, you would enter the Router's IP as the Gateway address.
