First verify your wireless password, I highly suggest you log into your router and change it to a pass phrase that's easy to remember, such as:


That's even overkill, but you get the point, easy to remember and easy to enter into smart devices.

Usually there are 2 types of wireless connections, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Your laptop may not be able to connect to one of these connections, so it may be incompatible with your router. You can try buying a USB networking card (no more than $20). It will plug into one of your USB ports and should allow you to connect to your router. Hope this helps!

Are you having trouble with the WiFi? I've never had a smart phone, or anything else for that matter, suggest forgeting a network. The list of remembered networks just gets longer and longer over time. However, if you go into WiFi settings there are things you can do to clean up the list of networks like set a priority order/move up and down or forget/remove old networks. In summary, unless you are having trouble with the wifi, this may be a normal thing you just recently noticed.

The reset procedure of a router, is most of the time printed on the underside of the router. Most of the time you have to push a button for a certain time, or unplug it form the power for at least one minute or so. Page 120 of the manual says:

On page 120 you also see what settings are in the router. But perhaps you need it, to setup everything from scratch.

There is a Quick start guide that comes with the router, if you log in there is a setup wizard mode that will walk you thru the setup asking you questions about your service...

download driver and software from the following link:

In order to achieve wireless capabilities you need to temporarily connect a USB cord into the computer and printer to find your wireless network through the HP software. If you have a Windows computer and the Solution Center is already installed on your computer, then follow these steps:
1. Go into Devices and printer
2. Right click on the printer, select remove device
3. Click on your Start Menu, then All Programs
4. Click on the HP folder
5. Click on your printer, then printer set up and software
6. Click on add a new printer, click on wireless (This is where you can temporarily connect your USB cord)

You can still use IPV4 instead.

IPV6 will be rejected anyway, so you don't need to turn it off.

Forget the AES encryption, it is a type of encryption used.

What you need to be setting up is the protocol for wireless networks, WEP, WPA etc. that carries the data, encrypted or not between the computer and the printer.

They both must be the same type and have the same password set up.

Do you mean it doesn't power on or won't connect to the internet?
If it powers on OK do the lights flash as described in the manual
If the router worked before why should you need new firmware, doesn't make sense.

Go back and reload the firmware if that solves it you are good to go if not revert back to factory firmware and then post a note on Netgears site,could be a bug in their firmware.

Wireless devices do not use drivers. Try NetGear Suppot :

Go to to download your resource software. You will need your model number, the N600 will not do it. Flip that router upside down or look on the sides for the actual model number or serial. Punch that in on the site to locate your download. Once you have downloaded it, run it. Hopefully that fixes your problem.
