I purchased this router, and in reading reviews several people complained how bright the blue "dome light" is. They also pointed out that in the manual there is a way to turn it off. I would like to turn it off, and I have read the manual virtually "cover to cover" (I am after all reading it on my computer), but I did not find any information about this.
The internet connection light is blue, i am assuming this means the device thinks that it is connected. However wired or wireless I can't hit any web pages. When I use the internal tools neither can the device ping any address.
I am using: Firmware 2.00NA DSL modem ATT-Yahoo-SBC (Speedstream 4100 using DHCP)
I am planning to upgrade the firmware to 2.01NA and give that a shot.
I have a HP Pavillon dv6000 laptop, tried connecting to my wireless network this morning but no luck. It will connect fine when using Ethernet cable. Whether the switch is pushed to on or off the light stays orange, when it is connected it used to turn blue. I've included a prtscrn of my device manager...

I have WRT 120 N which has apparently stopped working. When I turn it on, only the power led turns on without blinking, no other light flashes. My computer can't detect the router signals since the signal light is off. Neither does my modem show that the router is connected to it through the ethernet cable. My ethernet cable is working fine, since it is working directly with the computer.
My 7 month old Netgear wireless router suddenly stopped working
The router's power light will not remain on after powering it up. The only lights that remain on after power-up are the (4) "LAN Port" lights (solid green) and the "Internet" light (solid amber).
The owner's manual states that it's a hardware problem if the power light does not remain on and to call tech support. The tech I spoke too said it's a settings issue that they deal with everyday and not a hardware problem.
One of the things I've tried was using a paper clip to reset the router to it's factory settings. It didn't change anything though. Re-running the setup CD didn't yield any results either. It just stopped in the middle because it said there was no ethernet cable connecting the laptop to the router, even though there was.
By the way... My ISP is Century Link and I use an Actiontec DSL Modem.
Not sure how to modify the router's settings if the network is down.
I recently purchased and successfully installed a NetGear N600 dual band router (WNDR3400). My desktop has no connection issues. My iPod Touch has no issues connecting to the wireless network. However, my phone (HTC Aria), my work computer (Dell Latitude D630 Win XP) and my brand new HP Slate 500 (Win 7 Pro) cannot connect to the network. The network is discoverable by all the devices but the 3 cannot connect. I removed all security and still was not able to connect.
I reinstalled the router and still not able to connect. I restarted the router and still not able to connect. The Dell did previously connect to unsecured networks in my neighborhood but does not seem to like my newly set-up network. I am most surprised that the Slate is unable to connect to the wireless network. I would think something brand new would like that would not have an issue. If I cannot get my wireless router working properly and my other computers able to connect to it, it makes them all pretty useless.
Now my problem refers to the game Minecraft specifically, but I believe it has more to do with the router than the game, so that's why I am posting on here. To let people connect to your Minecraft server, you need to set a static IP and forward the port 25565. I have followed all of the tutorials for that on this site to the letter, and yet all I can do is make people in my network able to connect. Now before you say this has nothing to do with you guys, I also want to point out that the port checker tool says that port is closed, on both UDP and TCP. For some reason following these guides only opens my port to the network that connects through the router, either wirelessly or wired. So therefore any port checking tools or sites say that it is closed. I have checked my firewalls, turned them off, uninstalled them and that doesn't work. And no, people can't connect through the network unless I forward the ports, so I am actually doing something when I try to forward them. I am running Windows Vista x64-bit
I have a Netgear WNDR3400 router and I would like to just dabble with it and see if I can't get any more performance out of it. I checked dd-wrt already and it isn't supported yet. Any other place to get custom firmware for my router type?
Out of no where today, my wireless connection has begun saying "No internet access" and I can't go anywhere online Ever since it began happening, it's been saying that for longer amounts of time. So at first it was only a few seconds, now it's been taking a minute until I re-gain internet access. I haven't installed anything or ran any executables lately, don't have any viruses, I obtain my DNS and IP addresses automatically, and a few minutes ago I installed the newest firmware update of my router and I'm still losing internet. I have a NetGear WNDR3400 router.
I recently got a Netgear WNDR3400 Dual Band Wireless Router. When I first installing it everything seemed to run great, download was about 1.5 Mbps and a good ping, 20-70 for gaming. This lasted about a day. While the download does vary due to the service provider, my ping however has suddenly increased to a constant 200-400. This is happening on my Laptop, X-Box 360, and PS3.I have tested both wired and wireless connections from the router and used both the 2.64Ghz and 5Ghz frequency and I still have the same issue. I have then done a wired connection straight into the modem and my ping returns to the 20-70. My Router is less than 3 ft from all systems. I live in a barracks so there are multiple wireless signals floating about. However no one else seems to have any issues with there ping when using a wireless router and there only 1 room above me. I have changed channels on both frequency's, enabled and disabled NAT Filtering, decreased and increased the MTU size within the WAN settings, reset the router to factory defaults, ensured I have the proper firmware, and proper software for my laptop.
I have a Netgear N600 (WNDR3400) router, it supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks.My laptop is a Thinkpad T410s with a 11b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter II.i have enabled both of the wireless networks on the router, and given them different SSIDs. I have updated my wireless drivers to the absolute newest ones. My issue is that my laptop cannot even see the 5 GHz SSID. I was under the impression that any N enabled device would be able to communicate on the 5 GHz network.
Familiar with the WNDR3400 but I purchased it when it first came out only to replace it with my E4200. The WNDR3400 has a "wireless repeater function" and I was wondering if it was in any way compaitable witht he E4200 or does it have to be directly connected to use it as an accesspoint/range extender ?
I recently reset my router as I did not know my password and I needed to find out what the WEP was. Now the internet light will not come on. I have followed instructions on setting up the router as if it were new and still no luck.
last Monday night, out internet just stopped working completely. We had an older Livebox (Inventel) and after phoning tech support, we were told it was a problem with the router. The problem was with the "@" symbol flashing about once a second. Anyway, they sent over a new router. This was the netgear1000. We set it up and the Internet light stayed red - all the other lights that are meant to be green are green.. We checked the details against what was on the personal detail card they sent over with the router and all of that was correct. It even shows the upload and download speed even though we cannot connect to the internet. When I check the status, it states that the LCP is ready to come up or something along those lines and that the CHAP authentication failed. I phoned them up again and they couldn't solve the problem so it's being moved up to a different department apparently. Anyway, I don't get how it can be an error with the username and password if my old router just stopped working with nothing being changed. The phone line is fine and the tech guy even changed our password.
I have a netgear MR814 router that is not connecting to the internet. A few days ago my wireless was SO slow that I disconnected and did a powercycle (which usually works when wireless drops off now and then) but then it did not connect to the modem anymore. The ports 1, 4, wireless, and power lights are on but the internet light is off. I know it's not a modem problem because I can hardwire the modem to my laptop and get on internet. I've tried a few things suggested on this forum and elsewhere (maybe I shouldn't have messed with it?) but nothing has worked to resolve the problem. When I am connected to the router I cannot access the routerlogin and the ipconfig/release/renew shows that wireless lan media is disconnected.

I previously asked if I should be concerned that the Internet light on my Linksys E3000 router doesn't light up when I have Internet access. Well recently I had to do a reset and I noticed that during the reset it does in fact light up, but it doesn't come on when the router is done with the reset!
I am trying to light up every port light on a 3750g. There is not anything plugged into them and I would like to know (just for fun) is there a way to make every port light 1 - 48 turn on using a command?
I�m trying to get an old Dell XP laptop (g wireless adapter) working with my new Net gear (wndr3400) dual band router and hit a wall. No problems on my tower. No problems with a newer Dell laptop with an adapter or a grandson�s iPhone using the guest SSID. No problems with the TV on the 5.0G side of dual band router using same passphrase key. I see the router/SSID I want but cannot connect. I do not get a prompt for the passphrase/WEP key. I tried to follow instructions from a MS site that seemed to cover my exact problem but the behavior of the Wireless Network display does not follow the script.
Here�s what I do:
1.Right click Wireless Network Connection icon bottom right of screen
2.Select View Available Wireless Network Connections
3.Locate desired SSID/router with 5 bars (from router) and double click. Reads �this network requires a network key. It should because I assigned one. 9 ascii, 2 numeric 11 chars total-WPA2-FSK (AES)
4.Click Connect in bottom right of window
5.Entry for the desired router now says validating identity and a pop up box bottom right says windows was unable to find a certificate to log you into the network xxxx where xxx is my SSID.
6.This will sit there saying validating identity for 2-3 hrs with no results.
7.There was never a prompt for Passphrase /WEP key!
If I open up Wireless Network Connections display and select Properties then Wireless Networks tab, select my router connection (only one there) then properties, it shows WEP but network key fields are grayed out. A little bit earlier they were not and I could enter the 11char key but it rejected it as too short. I used to use this laptop for years with an older Lynksys g router.
I have my ethernet cable hooked up to a WNDR3400 router, and my internet connection will drop for an instant randomly (usually happens at least once every 5 minutes) it then instantly reconnects. The problem is that when i'm downloading stuff, the disconnection will cause the download to fail and i'll have to restart from the beginning (making larger files impossible to download). Also, I have an xbox in the same room connected to the router via wireless. It also has the same issues of dropping and reconnecting and that causes me to get kicked out of live.Interestingly enough, my laptop, connected to the internet via wireless does not experience this issue when used in (or outside of) the room.
I've been able to duplicate my problem by using another WinXp computers instead of a USB drive plugged into my router. Same exact problem. So, the bottom line is that I can access (and modify) the files across the network if I'm doing so manually, but my Windows service fails when trying to do the same thing. If I run the program through Visual Studio, it works. If I run that same exact code as a Windows service, it fails.
I've created a Windows service that needs to access a common network location. To test it at home, I plugged a USB drive into my Netgear N600 WNDR3400 router. The USB storage settings show the workgroup name as Workgroup, and the file path is. [code]
I'm looking to be able to access (read and write) a networked external hard drive which is connected to a home router - specifically the Netgear WNDR3400, which has a USB port explicitly for this purpose - from outside the network, via the internet. This is for work purposes (specifically for a small business that I design for). Is this doable? I've been using Dropbox but that's proving too problematic as more and more files need to be managed. I would prefer it not be through software that has to be running on a computer, as there is no "machine" running 24/7 here besides the router itself.
I am not wanting to use my router as I have disconnected it all together. I ran an ethernet cable from the back of my dvd player to another room where my computer is. I plugged ehthernet cable to computer. And dvd player saying no network.
I have a blueray player that I want to put in the computer that works as a server for me. The server is the computer that I have the vpn attached to and is therefore the one that gets all of the downloads as well.I am also thinking of upgrading the network for this to 1000 bit - N standard? With the faster throughput on the internet will it be feasible to stream a blueray across the network?
I have an old computer that is currently running XP at 2.1GHz Athlon AMD with 1.5 DDR RAM, would I be able to turn it into a dedicated server? More importantly, should I? all I have is a small home network running a couple desktops and a printer off one and connected by a wireless router to the internet, would it make a difference at all in processing speed or connectivity on any of them?
