Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect

Internet worked fine this morning. Went to check mail this afternoon on wireless laptops & found that there was no connection. Did the normal resetting of router but still cannot connect on laptops. Internet on desktop works fine, hence this post.

Also tried resetting the network completely but to no avail. Network name shows up in list & is detected, sometimes will ask for network key, will attempt to connect but then we get message/Windows bubble saying it cannot connect to the network. My HP Vista Ultimate laptop says it does not receive a return signal from the router, and our XP Toshiba says that it cannot connect to the network, or "there might be interference between this computer & the network access point or the network is refusing access to this computer". It offers the option to repair but then cannot reset the IP address.

We've exhausted all of our options & are completely lost. I need the wireless laptop for business & need things up & running again ASAP. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    where do yu check the wireless settings for the router and the wireless settings for the computer?

    Outbound access to the INTERNET does not work most of the time. ISP is Verizon FIOS. Internally between three desktops and one laptoop works fine.

    I spent over an hour on the phone with Verizon and then Netgear last night to no avail. WPN is supposed to be PPPoE, but insists on having a fixed IP address.

Thanks for the suggestion. Oddly enough, after 2-3 days, the laptops were suddenly able to connect again. Strange.

First of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

I have a linksys wireless g router that worked fine until yesterday. Now it won't connect to the internet. I have a desktop wired to the router and a laptop used wireless.


Check if you can connect to the internet when hooked directly to the modem. If your connection works fine through the modem, then your router needs to be reconfigured.

Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.


you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
