Question about NetGear DG834G Router

1 Answer

After attempting to upgrade the firmware in my WPN824v2 router, the machine is acting as if it is stuck in a boot cycle. The check LED above the power light is blinking. The Internet connection LED is flashing amber. I have tried the reset button on the back, but to no avail. I'm stumped as to what to do next as I cannot even access the router interface via routerlogin.net. Is there anything I can do from this point that would not necessitate replacing the router?

In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

There a great article at General Router Setup.

I have a netgear WPN824v2 wireless router. I have just bought an iphone 4 and although I can get onto the wireless network, I can't see the interenet. Any thoughts appreciated


Some things to try:
1) Check the current version of firmware on your WPN824v2. If it is older than version 2.0.26, then try downloading and installing the firmware update to see if this resolves the issue.

Firmware Update: (click here) [Note: directions for performing the update are on this page as well]

2) Check whether disabling IPv6 on both laptops makes any difference. If you need help doing this, please ask me in a reply.

3) Verify that both laptops are using automatic (DHCP) IP address assignment

4) Verify that MAC address filtering is not preventing the second laptop.

Again, if you have any questions about how to do any of these checks, please feel free to send a reply. Also if after we're done with this session and you are happy with the information provided, please consider rating it with 3 or 4 thumbs-up.


Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

No connection through wireless


Check if the router has been setup as an access point. Sounds like the router is not assigning any IP addresses to the machines. Enable router to work as a DHCP server or if you dont want it to act as a DHCP server then check whether your ISP modem is set to act as a DHCP server. One way or another the devices in your network need to be assigned IP's either automatically via DHCP or manually.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

D-Link 500T status led is not working


Hi,

Try resetting the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds and try again. If resetting it does'nt solve the issue then look for TFTP application for firmware upgrade or send us the model number of the router.

Problem after firmware update Edimax BR-6114Wg


Hi Fklco,

Why are you connecting the WAN,, (the internet modem cable), to the standard ports? It should have a WAN port, for the cable from the modem, and a LAN for the cables to the computer?

On the other hand, if it is working, I would leave well enough alone, :D

My 3com officeconnect doesn't work after upgrding the firmware


Are you able to login to the router? If you can reset the router to factory defaults..If you can't login to the router...Is there an external reset button on the router you could try to reset. with a paperclip? Otherwise, I had this happen on a linksys router/switch. New router time. You should just return it where you purchased the product. There was already something seemingly going wrong if it was rebooting. 3 weeks? just return it. don't even mention the firmware update. Here is the site info for 3com: http://knowledgebase.3com.com/ OfficeConnect - Firmware upgrade fails with incorrect user interface image Problem: Incorrect user interface image Problem: Firmware upgrade fails Problem: Error when upgrading firmware Problem: Incorrect firmware Problem: Wrong firmware Fact: Firmware Fact: Download Fact: Update Fact: Upgrade Cause: The downloaded .exe has not been extracted Fix: The downloaded .exe needs to be extracted by double clicking on it. When performing the firmware update use the extracted files that were obtained from the "exe" file. e.g You will obtain a "bin" or "dlf" type of file which is the firmware required for your upgrade. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
