Hey,
Today I tried installing a DVD rom. When I booted the computer my wireless internet would not connect to the router. My computer is the host of the router. I checked my bios and other various settings/configs, and cannot figure out what wrong. When playing around with the settings I went into device manager and into wireless adapter and changed the config setting from the routers and clicked the windows config button. For some reason that worked for my computer, but only my computer. I can connect but the router still is not putting out a signal. I can bypass the router and have internet access but once again, no wireless. I have a Netgear WGT624 router and they outsource their customer service to people are very hard to understand if at all. I would be happy to get any insight what so ever.

Have you tried jumping into your router and check all those settings. And what do you mean your computer is the host of your router.

By host i meant the router is directly connected into my computer (the one having problems). The manual and cd rom installation referred to this computer as the ''host''. And, no i have not checked the router setting, i have misplaced the number that i would type into the URL to get to those settings. How do i get to them? But from the looks of the program the settings have not changed.

Go to Start>Run> and type CMD in the box and hit ok. Once the "Command Prompt" comes up, type the work "ipconfig /all". That will display a listing of your network connection. The number you will want to use for your access will be listed under "Default Gateway". When you are done with the command prompt window you can type "Exit" in it. So say if your IP scheme is 192.168.1.-, 10 to 1 your router will be typed in the url bar as "//192.168.1.1" and that will bring up your router. Check your setting, and also check your Event viewer "start>control panel>administrative tools> event viewer" and check the "System" option for any warnings or errors and post back.

I input the default gateway number into the URL to find that the router is username/passworded. The router was not set up by me but a family friend. Im trying to contact that person, hopefully they still have that info so i can access the router. Ill be sure to get back ASAP.

You might wanna try the following. I will type it in User/Pass format

admin/admin
admin/
admin/pass
admin/1234
/admin

Those are most default for linksys and netgear routers.

I tried those names and passwords and no luck. The person who in stalled this router doesn't have the info for it. Do I have to re-install it to get the name and password set up correctly?

another quick user/pass to try: admin/password My neighbors unprotected wireless netgear router is set to that (I've tryed to tell them!), and I'm considering just changed their password and leaving a note at their house, unprotected stuff really bothers me. :thumbsup:

When playing around with the settings I went into device manager and into wireless adapter and changed the config setting from the routers and clicked the windows config button.

Do you mean you set your computer to a static ip instead of a dynamic ip? I'm kind of confused.

On the back or on the side of most routers there will be a reset button that will reset it back to the factory settings from when you got it, use that as a last resort, but ONLY if you are confident enough to set your router back up again.


Hope that helps! :flowers:
