Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Tropical Storm Fay has confused my router!

Hi. I've had a lot of recent blackouts lately from Fay and now I can't use my router! When the power came back on, I noticed that my devices were no longer able to find my network, so I reset my Westell modem for at&t dsl and my d-link router. When I opened up my browser, at&t wanted to know my login information, which I had forgotten, so I reset the password but I still wasn't able to get on the internet with my router connected to the computer. When the modem was only connected to my computer then I could get internet, otherwise when the router was connected to the modem and my computer I couldn't. I decided to change to a netgear router but the problem still persists. I told both of them my password change and that it's PPPoE. What's the deal?! Thanks. I read about you guys in the paper.

If you have reset the modem then it will be un-bridge already. the configuration you need to the router is Automatic Configuration-DHCP and not PPPoEand change the local ip address of the router to to avoid ip adress conflict between router and modem.

W fi will no longer connect

The wireless router has a rest button, just reset it, you will need to reset security, if you use it.

To rest ip, you use ipconfig/all

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew


But if you just reset router, repower this and the cable modem, you should see the wireless, then if you have to, open network and sharing, change adapter setting, disable and enable the wireless hardware.

hold the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds and the router should reset back to factory settings and you have to set it up again. Here's the manual though. bottom of page 62. instruction if you forgot password. But it works the same.

When you get your blackberry screen blackout? After your blackberry 9530 unlocked or a few days after you unlocked your phone? Did you get my point? If you get that blackout screen after blackberry unlocked process try to reset your phone to default factory setting and if still not working try to reinstall your blackberry os, but if you get that blackout screen a few days after you unlock your phone looks like your screen already broken and you need to replace it in your nearest local mobile repair shop.

I have a COMPAQ, Presario SR1055CL Desktop, that will not bootup

Hi....If the computer will not start and you hear no fans or other electrical sounds chances are the power supply has failed. If you had an electrical storm that caused the blackout and did not have a surge protector power strip it could be much worse. Check the power supply first. You can google for help in testing that supply. Good Luck Hank

Maytag Neptune is Stuck on Settings and Will Not Start

ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

This is an electronic problem. You did right to try and reboot the machine. It probably got a power surge during the storm!!
When there is an electrical storm it is not prudish to unplug or throw the circuit breaker on major electronically run appliances. ALL EXCEPT THE FRIDGE, of course!

I do this some times .

Engine was flooded in tropical storm Fay, and will not start. Starter sounds as if it is trying to engage, but it is not. Can the engine be fixed, or is t seized?

you will need to drain all fluids and pull plugs out. if it was not running when flooded you should be able to save. remove plugs and disable fuel/ignition system spin over to blow out the water in cylinders
