Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router

Wpn 824 wireless issues.

I have a netopia cayman 3300 dsl modem connected to a wpn824 netgear router. firtly I could not connect to the internet from a wired connection from the ethernet port of the dsl moden to the internet port of the router. this issue was resolved by connecting the cable from the modem to one of the ethernet ports on the router and another cable from the router to the pc. Now I have setup a wireless connection which communicates a signal with the pc but fails to access the internet.the wep key which I set on the router was 01234abcde and was also set on the pc's wireless card (which is a dell pci card). Please help in trying to shed some light on this matter

If you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.

My netgear wpn824 router is not connecting to the dsl router address 192.168.1.1 without connecting how can i configure my modem


You can bypass the Smart Wizard Configuration Assistant feature by typing
http://www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm
in the browser address bar. You may be prompted for a user name and password. The user name is admin and the default password is password. This will enable you to manually configure the wireless router even when it is in the factory default state. When manually configuring the router, you must complete the configuration by clicking Apply when finished entering your settings. If you do not do so, a browser on any computer connected to the router will automatically display the router's Configuration Assistant Welcome page rather than the browser's home page. In the Lan setup page, you have to use PPPoE, and type in the username and password from your DSL provider.

Westell 6100g has one dataport, but I want to link to my Netgear WPN824 wireless router. XP machine.


Connect the NetGear WAN/ Internet port to the WAN/Internet port of the Westell cable modem, then connect your PC to any of the ports on the router
Then:

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe

How to connect ruoter to internet


If you are connecting to either broadband cable or dsl you pretty much have the same steps. First hook up the modem (dsl or cable) with its own power cable and its own internet connection coming in (dsl will be a usually green phone cable)(cable will be a coaxial line that the cable guy already hooked up). Next get the netgear router and plug in its power cable somewhere near the modem, then plug in a preferably crossover ethernet cable to the uplink connection on the back of the netgear, should be on the same side as where the power cable went in. (and yes you can probably use a straight ethernet cable as well) Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into the only location it will go on the modem, both boxes should already be setup for use, if for any reason they do not work just pull the power on them both at the same time and wait a minute or two and replug them back in for power resets.

I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.


Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Can't connect Netgear router with ATT DSL


After you hook everything up the first thing you want to do is power cycle everything. So unplug the power cord on the router and the modem, Then plug the modem back in first and once the lights all come back on then plug in your router and once those lights come up i would reboot your PC and see it that helps.

Netgear wireless wpn824


Sounds link you need to setup PPPoE on your router. Not knowing who your ISP is, Netgear has this website that lists a lot of ISPs support on setting PPPoE up. that is located here: Netgear

If you can't find the info there, basically what you need to do is on your router, typically the main page, you might see an area that lists: DHCP, Static, PPPoE (or something similar). What you need to do, is select the PPPoE option and put your ISP login information (that is on your DSL modem now) there should be a connect or login button once your finished. Once that is done, your router does the logging in, instead of the modem.

Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.

Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.

Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.

Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...
