Questions & Answers for NETGEAR - Wireless-N Router

Question

Does this router have to be connected to a modem?

I do not own a desktop, only a laptop. Would this router work by simply connecting it to a cable connection and enabling wireless compatibility?

Yes, a modem is needed to reach the internet with this router. You would have to find a hybrid of a modem/wireless router for that to be an option.

Yes, you must have a modem, which you'll get when you sign up for Internet service. You'll then get the signal to the modem, then connect the router. You'll also have to connect your laptop to the router initially, to configure it, set your wireless network name (SSID) and wireless password. You can then disconnect the cable, and surf wirelessly from then on.

You would have to connect the router to a modem. Once you do that, you can either use the WiFi capability, or connect your laptop hardwired (CAT 5 Cable) to the router.

Brittney,
Any router can be connected directly to a Modem, just ensure that the Modem is off, as well as the router, let everything off for 30 seconds, then connect.
Most of the newer Netgear routers come pre-configured for basic security, and they have the info on a little sticker. You can still direct wire in your laptop temporarily, to setup. Or just have the Geek Squad come out and set it up.
Some nicer routers, are the N600 Netgear series router, WNDR3700 series, is fantastic.

answer 11
IF your cable connection is the source of your internet signal, it should work (Ours is AT&T). Some internet signals like Comcast have a black box which the router has to connect to for it to work (altho they also have a Wireless Gateway that has to be purchased thru them if your connection qualifies).
I connected one of these yesterday for a friend on Comcast and we connected thru Comcast black box and wireless signal immediately available. With some routers, you need to make an ethernet connection to router to get initial setup done and then you can disconnect and use wireless. Should be easy setup and Negear support is good as well as Best Buy's support. Also recommend whatever router has ethernet connection so that you have option of bein wireless or being directly connected.

If your chrome book has the ethernet adaptor for the initial set up AND a wireless B/G/N card, it should work. If you don't have an ethernet port, set it up with another computer then you can just connect with your chrome book.

Hi Daniel,

I believe it will work with a Chromebook. As long as you are able to connect wirelessly with the Chromebook, I don't think you will have a problem. I have a Kindle Fire and I connect just fine with the router. Hopefully this helps! Sorry I'm not too familiar with the Chromebooks. :)

answer 1
Connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cable. Then go to www.routerlogin.net the user name is admin and the passcode is simply passcode. Here you can change your passcode. But know that your router came with a passcode assigned to the serial, for security it's best to use that one. Look on the bottom of your router you will see the passcode there. Or you can reset it using the site I provided. Good luck.

You can reset the password, the handbook shows how to accomplish this situation. Also while setup you can store your pass word on netgear site while registering the router.
You might have to reconfigure the network again in worst case scenario but no need to buy a new router, your investment will be safe.

answer 3
The device has a "quick connect" button that you can push to allow a new device to find out all the permissions it needs to connect to the network. If your computer / device doesn't have this option, you will need to get into the routers configuration files to get / set a password. Details on how to do this are on the manufacturers website, (you will just need the model number written on the back of the device.)

http://netgear.com

If you do not know the password to enter the configuration file, there is a "reset" button on the device that will return it to its original default configuration. This would allow you to use the default password to get into the router configuration, and set a network password again.

Be aware that hitting the reset button would require you to again make any and all changes that you have already made while setting up the device - if you are not comfortable doing that, you may want to ask for assistance in performing this task.

If this is a newer model, the default SID and password are right on the back of the actual router. If you changed the password or are using an older model, just reset to factory settings and access through your browser. Just type in the IP Address of 192.168.0.1

This isn't going to be a perfect answer.

First of all, whenever I buy a piece of equipment, I set up a file that has all the paperwork, including things like the password.

When and if that doesn't occur, I would call the Geek Squad...I'm betting that if they were given the serial number they'd be able to help...although you may have to pay for services unless you already have a contract with them. They're worth their weight in gold for me...helping with computer issues and performance issues on the various pieces of equipment I've purchased from them. They are one of the main reasons I keep coming back to Best Buy!

You should turn off sharing files on your machines. I haven't worked with Apple products but I know with Windows you are able keep all your files hidden from any other devices on a network. Just google how to turn off network shares and there should be plenty of information on this.

First Question: That configuration is correct.
Second Question: As long as your laptop is correctly configured to connect to the wireless network on the router, when it has completed powering up, it will connect wirelessly to the internet. Depending on how fast your computer is, you may have to wait 1-2 minutes between when your computer gets into Windows and when wireless is available.
Third Question: Most Wireless-N routers have a guest network feature. With Guest Network feature enabled, you can uncheck the option to "Allow guest to access My Local Network".

answer 3
Yes, your connection pathway is correct - I used the same setup for my Netgear router and it works perfectly. When you power up your laptop, it should automatically search for local wireless networks... If the router is working correctly, it will show as a new result and you can click it to access. You will probably need the password code that is listed on a sticker on the botton of the router to access the network from your laptop and any other devices in the home. I don't know for sure about sharing files, but my laptop and desktop are completely separate and do not have any files shared at all. I think you would have to set up a home network and choose an option to share files for this to happen; in my experience, which is limited, this will not happen automatically.

Your list of connections are correct. Make sure to use the correct port from router to cable modem!

A wireless laptop (or any other wireless device) can connect automatically IF the device is correctly configured to do so. This means naming your network on the router and setting up security. Use your desktop for these tasks.

Files on one computer will not be visible ("shared") to other computers unless you specifically set it up to do so.

the connestion sequence seems right, modem to router and router to PCs either wired or wireless.
connecting wireless is easy and done through setup. the router setup program is straight forward and lets you set up wepkeys and pass phrases to allow your devices to connect securely. (use some security and avoid the no security option.
you don't have to share files you don't want to with some or all of the computers on the network.

1.Yes you are correct.
2. If your laptop can detect the signal from the wireless router, it should be able to access the internet (as long as you use the security password which you configured during the router setup.Some wireless routers, like the NETGEAR, have a password already configured for each router; you can change it if you wish.)
3. Couple of different ways to do this:
- set up a "guest" access where guests can get internet access, but not access your private network.
- in windows, set up the laptop's access as "public" vs "home" network which will allow sharing
- in desktop, do not allow sharing of files with other computers on the network

Your connection settings are correct.

You should not be able to connect to files between your desktop and laptop unless you have file sharing turned on. Windows file sharing protection is separate from internet access via your router. Similarly, just because you connect via a laptop at Starbucks or Panera Bread along with a number of other laptop users, it doesn't automatically mean that everyone can see your files. Those settings should be configured on your PC. Additionally, you should have a password for your account on both systems.

You need a network cable (yellow, green, or grey), it looks like a phone cable but thicker. You should also plug the power adapter into a surge protector. Next, plug the network cable into the dsl modem "out" and the router "in" jack. Next plug a PC into one of the other jacks on the router i.e. 1,2,3,4 etc. using the same type of network cable. You should be connected to the internet now! Just follow the instructions that came w/your router and there ought to be pictures to show you how this should work.

It is very simple to hook up a dsl with a router. It comes with easy instructions, but I will explain in simple terms. Basically you take the ethernet calbe that comes out of your dsl modem and plug it into the port that says input on the router, then you take another ethernet cable that comes with the router and plug it into the output of the router then plug the other end into your computer. Turn on the router and give it a few seconds and then you should be on the web. Good luck.

Robert,
Try raising the router as high as possible in whatever location you have it in. Just like a antenna, the higher the better. Also, you might check to see if there is a firmware update for the router (current firmware version is V1.0.0.40_32.0.54NA). Hope this helps.

Your desktop would need to be directly connected to the router, via ethernet cable. The other option is to purchase a USB wireless adapter. Both ways will provide you access to your network. The USB adapter would be preferred if the pc is not near to your router and you don't want a cable running through your house. Either option will not interfere with your laptop connection and both will easily stay connected simultaneously.

I don't have Comcast, but if it's anything like RoadRunner (Time Warner), you should be able to connect the router to the cable modem, then connect your PC to one of the four open ports on the back of the router. Your laptop would connect via the wi-fi signal from the router or you can physically plug it in to one of the other open ports.

Of course you can connect everything you want. But for the PC, you need a Wireless adaptor connected to the usb port, to get the wireless signal.
Go to the closest Best Buy and ask for a Netgear Wireles USB adaptor for Desktops computers. It's very easy to install...

Good Luck

I wired Netgear Wireless router to existing wired modem for my desktop PC. I followed Netgear instructions to connect wireless laptop & wireless printer. Windows 7 has Homegroup network, allowing me to access files between both PCs.

Sure you can dude, just get the router as a wireless point so don't turn off the wireless setting on the router and make sure to have your laptop wireless option on, usually this option is mark by a blue light. Now you need to get on your routers settings so you can change your password so you don't have your access point open or may be you would like to share your internet with your neightbor that is your choice.

PS. Your desktop will have to have a Ethernet cable connected to your router and them you can play with the wireless connection on the other device (s) . good luck

Be sure to get the 900, as it's the largest and most powerful router to have longer range and higher bandwidth.

Yes, this router works with internet and telephone simultaneously. I have the triple-play package (phone, internet, tv) from Cable Vision, and I am happy with this router's bandwidth/speed and performance.

answer 4
This Netgear worked great for about 8 months. It is supposed to have a lifetime warranty. When I called Netgear that the router had gone out, I got the run around. Best Buy talked me into another one. once agein, it is great but its only been about a month. So, there is no such thing as life time warranty. It does work well when it does work. Maybe I just got a lemon the first time around.

I bought the netgear wireless router for my laptop, cell phone, & Xbox. It was easy to install, & it wasn't very expensive. I too have time warner that is why I bought the wireless router because they would have charged extra for it.

I had the same problem with two Netgear routers.
I returned the first and had the same issue with the second.
I bought a Linksys wireless router.
No problems since.

answer 2
it can only be controlled by one device at a time. Sometimes this happens when the IP refreshes. Just refresh your browser and restart the device

it means that more than one computer is trying to get the same ip address from the router. Be sure DHCP in enabled on the router and on your PC.

answer 4
Windows 7 gave me the same message when I entered the same ip address in a blu-ray set up procedure as the address for one of my computers. I went on to give blue-ray proper router address and other codes with help of Netgear tech assist, and conflict went away. Lesson seems to be each device needs unique address.

answer 5
This means that someone on your network has a static IP address and it is not reserved in the file server or the router. The router (or server) is handing out an address that is in use.

answer 6
It means that more than one of the devices on your network are trying to use the same IP address.

Short Answer: Your Internet provider Assigns you an IP address. (Internet address) - If you are using a router, the router assumes that address then hands out "Internal Addresses" to all of your other devices and allows you to "share" the one IP address. (everyone needs an IP address to acces the internet) -- More than likely, something on your network was assigned an IP address and does not want to "let go of it" and another device is trying to use the same internal address. Each device on your network should have its own unique IP (internal). Resolving the IP address conflict should speed things up and resolve the notification.
