I have at&t DSL.I NEEDED to upgrade my wireless gateway from the 2wire wireless-G gate way that I had.I also have a Netgear WNDR-4000 750N Wireless Dual Band Router.
I know I needed an at&t modem to run my DSL, so I purchased (before reading reviews) a Netgear 7550 Wireless Gateway from at&t (they did not have any "N" single user modems (if there is such a thing).I have read through other posts that it is possible to connect the two and I would not need the 7550 for anything else but a modem (disabling broadcast).
The question is ... do I REALY need to do all this or can I just get away with the 7550?Or will the Netgear WNDR-4000 750N Wireless Dual Band Router, if installed and used, fix some of the issues that other 7550 users have said in other posts?
Wireless ... I have 3 gaming systems, two PC's, a tablet and 4 smartphones.I will be using 3 wired ports ... 1 gaming system, PC, and a blue-ray.
And yes, my 2wire wireless-g gateway ran all these ... not efficiently or reliably, but they all did run.
I have not received the Netgear 7550 yet, just trying to get some opinions on which setup would be better.
ATT just sent me a replacement Netgear 7550 ADSL Gateway. I previously had a 2Wire modem that could connect with my Mac desktop and Toshiba laptop without issues.Now my Mac is up and running wireless on the new gateway (no problem), but the laptop (Windows 7) is not connecting and Windows troubleshooting goes not resolve the problem. It will connect via Ethernet but ATT could not get it on wireless. The ATT tech signed on the the laptop and could not get it done.
I just recieved the netgear modem model 7550 from frontier. when i try to connect to the wifi i get a message saying that it is connected but there is a lock symbol on the wifi icon. i have entered in the password but it does not change anything?
I recently set up my netgear wireless gateway (cgd24g).I am able to connect to the internet with it through an ethernet cable, but have so far been unable to connect wirelessly.I've tried changing my SSID in the gateway's settings and applying WPA encryption, but when I search for my wifi network, I just see the default SSID.
Netgear WNR2000 router. Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard connected to router through wireless. Windows 7 Desktop getting internet through the MBP ethernet.
I can't figure out how to be a part of my "Home Network" with my Win7 Machine so I can see other computers in my house, use my networked printers, etc. I can only see the MBP it is connected to in network panel. I want to be able to stream the movies on this computer to my iPad which is connected to the wireless router.
I have been using a cable modem gateway - Netgear CGD24G from Charter for two years. I just bought Netgear R6300 wifi rounter in order to upgrade the speed and range for my internet. My goal is to upgrade 802.11g to 802.11ac. Is there any special way to setup it up? Or do I need to contact Charter to replace a new gateway?
I have had to re format vista and reload my WiFi. My internet connection using an ethernet cable to my LAN works ok but when the ethernet cable is removed and I click "connect" I am asked for my security key or passphrase. How do I find this information or preferably remove the request for it?
A few months ago, I purchase, installed and configured a WRT 160N V3. And I couldn't be happier. I now would like to go back and change the passphrase that a user needs to enter when they connecting to my router. Currently it uses the default value. And I would like to make it a bit more friendly. I found a number of postings dealing with setting retrieving or changing the Admin password.
But I was not able to find anything on changing the “passphrase”. There probably are a number of postings on the subject, and I simply overlooked them.
Is there a difference between (1) the Router Password (on the Admin tab of the web-based utility), (2) the Wireless Security Passphrase (on the wireless security tab of the web-based utility) , and (3) the password on the Router Settings in the Cisco Connect application?
My wife has a laptop that we want hooked up to the internet through our linksys wireless router. But I cannot remember my security key or passphrase needed to get her on the connection. How do I recover, or find, it?
I've just hooked up my previously used N300 router. The router is showing a solid green light, and the laptop recognizes that a solid Belkin wireless connection is out there. I cannot for the life of me remember the network key and/ or pass phrase I originally set. No, I did not tape this info to the underside of the router as suggested in Belkin instructions.
After a lot of effort I got my wireless adapter to work like it should without security. I set WPA 2 level security on my WRT54GS wireless router and then went to access the router (set up as an access point) with the WPC54G ver 2 adapter on a Thinkpad T22, it says I have WEP encryption and I cannot enter the passphrase I used for the router. It does not let me select AES. It says to pick AES or TKIP, but TKIP is the only choice.
I've got two RV082's connected. Each has a dynamic IP (changes typically every few weeks). I've configured the tunnels on both ends with a local and remote "Remote/Local Security Gateway Type" of "Dynamic IP + Domain Name(FQDN) Authentication".If I look at the VPN Summary tunnel status, it shows an IP address of "mydomain.dyndns.org 0.0.0.0" under the "Remote Gateway" column heading. The Tunnel Test "Connect" button is N/A.I can resolve both of the mydomain.dyndns.org entries on both sides of each VPN using the Diagnostic DNS lookup tool within each router. If I hardwire a fixed IP address for the Local and Remote Gateway everything works just fine. VPN is good.
I just can't seem to get the "mydomain.dyndns.org" function to work. It appears the router can't resolve the dynamic IP from the domain names on each of the routers.
I replace our aging rv082 routers with wireless rv220w routers. The gateway to gateway vpn works great, however I am no longer able to manage our print servers port 80 management page. I can ping any host with success, and I can manage hosts that have a port 10000 or 8000 web interface - but no port 80 ones... I had no issues when using the old rv082 routers...
I picked up a pair of RV220W's and before I spent loads of time at a remote site, I figured I'd go through some VPN testing at home to make sure I could get it setup properly. What this means is I've plugged the Internet uplink into a switch, then from the switch into both routers & configured them (using unique static IP's for each) from there. For what its worth: While I have some IT experience, I don't have strong networking experience.
I setup several VLAN's on the local RV220W, and the end result is to make it so that an asset at the remote site with an IP in any of the ranges (192.168.121.0/24, 192.168.131.0/24, 192.168.141.0/24 and any future VLANs) can communicate with/access resouces at the local site. Likewise, an asset at the local site with an IP in any of the ranges (.121, .131, .141 + any future VLANs) should be able to reach the remote resources (currently just 192.168.181.0/24, but future VLANs as well).
This evening I tried to focus on the relevant VPN pages of the Administration Guide to get the VPN up. Leaving the defaults I got as far as establishing a link between both sites and it seems that things are working right: From the remote site (.181) I can access the local site (.121, .131, .141); and from the local site I can at least ping resources (a laptop) on the remote site. (Yay!)
However, when I physically connected an asset that had a 192.168.121.X, 192.168.131.X and 192.168.141.X IP addresses to the remote RV220W (which is 192.168.181.0/24), I couldn't see it from the remote or local sites.I assume this is expected. But I'm reaching out to the community to see what other possibilities might be available becuase networking is a weak area for me. I figured it might be something like a Static [or Dynamic] Route but I really am not 100% sure.

I recently swapped out an RV082 with a newer model (still RV082 but black and a different interface). I configured the Gateway to Gateway VPN exactly as it was before but none of the three other RV082's will connect. I have tried deleting the connections several times to no avail. I have aggressive mode disabled and have tried with the firewall on and off. Below are the settings (IP's have been X'd out) and the log.
