Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Laptop not connecting to wireless network

I have a wireless router setup with several things connected to it, including two laptops, a PS3, a Wii and a PSP. Recently, one of my laptops has stopped connecting. I can see the router and the signal is excellent butit won't connect. The password is correct and it connects very occasionally but drops the connection within 15 minutes and can take hours before it connects again. The other things connected to the router work fine. I have tried updating, rolling back the drivers and uninstalling/reinstalling the hardware to no avail. I have gone through all the settings from the working laptop to the one that won't connect without any luck. I checked the system info under conflicts/sharing and it says Broadcom 802.11n network adaptor is conflicting with Standard OpenHCD USB Controller? I have a NETGEAR wireless router and I just got a hp pavilion with vista and a arthos wireless card. Yet my dads older laptop will connect. But mine says NETGEAR with fill signal. then when ever I try to connect It loads then says "did not receive any response from router". what should I do I've already tried to do ever thing I can think of.I've tried changing the routers settings. Ive also tried downloaded solfware. but it would not connect.

The clue may be the broadcomm adapter, assuming this is a network rj45 connection and not the wireless, try dissabling it because it may be conflicting when it comes to assigning your pc an ip address.

Need internet password to connect new lap top and ps3 to wireless internet


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the laptop to the router.
Access the router's built-in web-interface.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to create your own wireless network,
and choose a SSID and choose a password.

Disconnect the Ethernet cable, and use "View Available Wireless Networks".

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
