Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect

Internet worked fine this morning. Went to check mail this afternoon on wireless laptops & found that there was no connection. Did the normal resetting of router but still cannot connect on laptops. Internet on desktop works fine, hence this post.

Also tried resetting the network completely but to no avail. Network name shows up in list & is detected, sometimes will ask for network key, will attempt to connect but then we get message/Windows bubble saying it cannot connect to the network. My HP Vista Ultimate laptop says it does not receive a return signal from the router, and our XP Toshiba says that it cannot connect to the network, or "there might be interference between this computer & the network access point or the network is refusing access to this computer". It offers the option to repair but then cannot reset the IP address.

We've exhausted all of our options & are completely lost. I need the wireless laptop for business & need things up & running again ASAP. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Outbound access to the INTERNET does not work most of the time. ISP is Verizon FIOS. Internally between three desktops and one laptoop works fine.

    I spent over an hour on the phone with Verizon and then Netgear last night to no avail. WPN is supposed to be PPPoE, but insists on having a fixed IP address.

Thanks for the suggestion. Oddly enough, after 2-3 days, the laptops were suddenly able to connect again. Strange.

First of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.

1. check the power to the router unit.
2. check with you ISP ( Internet Service Provider) to see if connectivity to your router was interrupted. You may have to reset the router.
3. here are some instructions to follow:
1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router

My WRT54G2 worked this morning, but not this afternoon.


try powercycling the router. It sounds like the DHCP serviec is hung up. Most likely, this will solve the issue.

Internet connection works on one laptop but not the other


First try forcing the DNS Address by channging the option to use the following DNS address in TCP/IP properties. primary DNS is 4.2.2.1 and the secondary DNS is 4.2.2.2 then try to connect. This should work if it doesnt follow the steps 2.
If it is Vista, then Vista has two FW administration user interface screens. One looks as the XP admin UI screen, and the other one is different and is the Advanced FW UI.
> Go to the Adv FW UI which is off of Control Panel. The icon looks like a brick wall.
> It will show you all the FW rules. So look for the filter name, and you can right-click the line and do what you need to do.Let me know whether this works?

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much


Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.

Pc works via ethernet cable but wireless laptop cannot see the network


I think you have lost your PPPOE internet connection. Reestablish the connection. If this is not the problem, click your wireless connection on the taskbar and search for your wireless device and reconnect. BPCS

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
