20 Most Recent Netopia 2247NWG-VGx Wireless Router (2247NWGVGX) Questions & Answers


To change your SSID, connect your router to your PC with an ethernet cable, go to your web browser (Intenet Explorer, Forefox, Chrome etc) and type 192.168.1.254, and press return.

This will open the control panel for the router.
Select 'EXPERT MODE' from the menu on the right, and accept the warning prompt. Then click on 'CONNECTION' and the 'WIRELESS' on the menu on the right.

In the main window you can then change the SSID for your network.

You can also change some of the other options in this window such as enabling closed mode (whether to broadcast your SSID or not), change security protocol, password, etc.

Reset the wireless by pushing and holding the RESET button, this will reset to default settings. Then you can reconfigure the SSID and Security. Take a look at this: http://www.routerpasswords.com/

Hello
Check with your router manufacture on how to log in to the router.

Once you have logged in,check that upnp or universal plug and play is checked to on.
This should allow x box to work through the router.

First make sure the dialling is done to the correct number - it will be listed in the contract papers.
Phone your ISP and request them to confirm you that those are indeed the correct username and password.

If you have a working Windows wireless machine, you can extract the key from the Windows machine and use it on your other devices.
Download this: http://download.cnet.com/WirelessKeyView/3000-2092_4-10614187.html
and then run it.
You can learn the WEP or WPA key in use which you can then use on other devices.
If there are no other working wireless devices, you will need to log on to your access point and reset the password there. The instructions for that depend on your access point. For the Netopia, you can refer to the instructions at http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/manuals/SoftwareUserGuideV761-Clsc.pdf

If using Windows XP: Go to Start/Control Panel/Switch to classic view/Windows Firewall/Turn off Firewall.
Windows Vista/7 Start/Control Panel/View By Large Icons/Windows Firewall/Turn off Firewall.

Try browsing to http://192.168.1.254, which is the default address of the router from the factory. If it's been changed you'll have to find the address of your computers 'default gateway' and use that instead.

Username is 'admin' and the default password is the serial number printed on the router itself.

Once into the router, you should be able to find the firewall settings and adjust them as necessary.

Good luck.

Well if your trying to set nat type for Black Ops Moderate is about the best you can get while in the game, I get open once in a while majority of the time it is moderate. But here is how you get the best possible connection. 1st enter your router usually 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 What you want to do is get your router information, DNS, Default Gateway, and Route Address.// Now you go into your gaming system and go to internet connection setup. You will want to give your System a static IP usually something along the lines of 192.168.2.160 or 192.168.1.160 notice the possition of the 2 or the 1 depending on your router IP if its a 1 use 1 if its a 2 use a 2.// Enter all the information from the router to the gaming system. Now 1 more step before you go online go into your routers gaming and applications setup go to DMZ and whatever IP you gave your system make sure you put the same in the DMZ of the router. now what you want to do is restart the router so it takes the changes once you save it. Now restart your machine as well once you have it all saved and bring it all back up.. Happy Gaming and hope this helps you out.
