The router should get the IP address on it's own when connected to a DSL or cable modem. If it's needing an IP address then it should be from the modem. The router can have an issue if the modem and router use the same IP range. Try changing router to 192.168.2.1. This can stop the possible conflict for why it's not getting info on it's own.

I have a netgear WPN824v2 wireless router. I have just bought an iphone 4 and although I can get onto the wireless network, I can't see the interenet. Any thoughts appreciated


Some things to try:
1) Check the current version of firmware on your WPN824v2. If it is older than version 2.0.26, then try downloading and installing the firmware update to see if this resolves the issue.

Firmware Update: (click here) [Note: directions for performing the update are on this page as well]

2) Check whether disabling IPv6 on both laptops makes any difference. If you need help doing this, please ask me in a reply.

3) Verify that both laptops are using automatic (DHCP) IP address assignment

4) Verify that MAC address filtering is not preventing the second laptop.

Again, if you have any questions about how to do any of these checks, please feel free to send a reply. Also if after we're done with this session and you are happy with the information provided, please consider rating it with 3 or 4 thumbs-up.


Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Is there an option to use a dynamically assigned IP address (also called DHCP)?

That's most likely the option you need, almost all home Internet providers use DHCP to assign the information you are asking for automatically to your Internet connected device (in this case, your router).

Let me know what options are available to you if neither Automatic or DHCP is.

Thanks!

Installation cd for Netgear router


The default login details and IP address for your Netgear router can be found on the bottom of the router.
Open your web browser and in the address bar type the IP address you found on the bottom of your router.
You should then be asked for your login details.
Once logged in you can setup your router as normal without the need of the CD.
Hope this helps,

Wrong IP address entered when installing NetGear WGR614v7


If you are refering to the router, there is a small button you can use a pen to press and hold while the router is on, Hold for about 10 to 15 secs - You will see the lights change as its resetting. That will reset the router back to factory defaults. You can then follow the directions from your manual or goto Netgears website and look up the manual there which will be in PDF format.

Please give more details on what you are trying to do by setting an ip address. You maybe making things more complicated than need be.

No connection trough router


Hi Thumbsucker,

Oftentimes with Netgear routers, before an Internet connection can be established, you'll need to run the Wizard setup routine on the router itself. Many other manufacturers don't require this, but if you're connecting to a PPPoE connection (such as DSL) then the Netgear requires said basic setup.

On the bottom of the router itself you'll see some information. It'll tell you the default IP address (such as 192.168.0.1) and a basic username and password (the default for most Netgear routers is admin for the username and password for the password). Plug your computer into one of the four switch ports on the router (not the uplink/Internet port) and type in the IP address of the router (again, such as 192.168.0.1) into your Web Browser (such as Internet Explorer). If it asks for a username/password then punch in the info given on the bottom of the router. At that point you should be able to answer the basic questions to get you online.

There is a chance that your modem and your router have the same IP address; in that case, you'll need to manually change the IP address on the router.

If by chance you can't get into the router via the information provided on the bottom of the device, take a paper clip and, with the router powered up, hold in the reset button for 30 full seconds. This will reset the device to its default factory settings.
