Attach the Stand
For optimal wireless network performance, use the stand (included in the package) to
position your router upright.
1. Orient your router vertically.
2. Insert the tabs of the stand into the slots on the bottom of your router as shown.
Place your router in a suitable area for installation (near an AC power outlet and accessible to the
Ethernet cables for your wired computers).
Position Your Router
The router lets you access your network from virtually anywhere within the operating range of
your wireless network. However, the operating distance or range of your wireless connection
can vary significantly depending on the physical placement of your router. For example, the
thickness and number of walls the wireless signal passes through can limit the range. For
best results, place your router:
•
Near the center of the area where your computers and other devices operate, and
preferably within line of sight to your wireless devices.
•
So it is accessible to an AC power outlet and near Ethernet cables for wired computers.
•
In an elevated location such as a high shelf, keeping the number of walls and ceilings
between the router and your other devices to a minimum.

•
Away from any large metal surfaces, such as a solid metal door or aluminum studs. Large
expanses of other materials such as glass, insulated walls, fish tanks, mirrors, brick, and
concrete can also affect your wireless signal.

Router Setup Preparation
You can set up your router with the Setup Wizard as described in Setup Wizard on page 18,
or manually as described in Manual Setup (Basic Settings) on page 19. However, before you
start the setup process, you need to have your ISP information and to make sure the laptops,
PCs, and other devices in the network have the settings described here.
Note: For a Macintosh or Linux system, you have to use manual setup.
Use Standard TCP/IP Properties for DHCP
If you set up your computer to use a static IP address, you have to change the settings back
so that it uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
Replace an Existing Router
To replace an existing router, disconnect it and set it aside before starting the router setup.
Gather ISP Information
You need the following information to set up your router and to check that your Internet
configuration is correct. Your Internet service provider (ISP) should have provided you with all
the information needed to connect to the Internet. If you cannot locate this information, ask
your ISP to provide it. When your router Internet connection is set up, you no longer need to
launch the ISP’s login program on your computer to access the Internet. When you start an
Internet application, your router automatically logs you in.
•
Active Internet service provided by a DSL account
•
The ISP configuration information for your DSL account
-
ISP login name and password
-
ISP Domain Name Server (DNS) addresses
-
Fixed or static IP address
-

Depending on how your ISP set up your Internet account, you could need to know one or
more of these settings for a manual setup:
•
Virtual path identifier (VPI) and virtual channel identifier (VCI) parameters
•
Multiplexing method
•
Host and domain names

Wireless Security Compatibility
A wireless client is the wireless device or computer that will connect to your router. Most PCs
and laptops come with a wireless adapter installed, but if it is outdated or slow, you can
purchase a new wireless USB adapter to plug into a USB port. Make sure the wireless
adapter in each client in your wireless network supports WPA or WPA2 wireless security.
Note: If you connect devices to your router using WPS as described in
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Method on page 26, those devices
assume the security settings of the router.
Security Basics
Unlike wired network data, wireless data transmissions extend beyond your walls and can be
received by any device with a compatible wireless adapter (radio). For this reason, it is very
important to use the security features available to you. Your router has the security features
described here and in Chapter 4, Content Filtering Settings.
•
Wireless security options
•
Turn off wireless connectivity
•
Disable SSID broadcast
•
Restrict access by MAC address
Wireless Security Options
A security option is the type of security protocol applied to your wireless network. The
security protocol encrypts data transmissions and ensures that only trusted devices receive
authorization to connect to your network. There are several types of encryption. WPA2 is the
latest and most secure, and is recommended if your equipment supports it. WPA has several
options including pre-shared key (PSK) encryption and 802.1x encryption for enterprises.
Note that it is also possible to use your router without wireless security. NETGEAR does not
recommend this. You can view or change the wireless security options in the Wireless
Settings screen. See Wireless Settings Screen on page 28.
Turn Off Wireless Connectivity
You can turn off the wireless connectivity of the router by pressing the Wireless On/Off button
. For example, if you use your laptop to wirelessly connect to your router
on its front panel
and you take a business trip, you can turn off the wireless portion of the router while you are
traveling. Other members of your household who use computers connected to the router
through Ethernet cables can still use the router.
Chapter 3. Wireless Settings
|
25
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
Disable SSID Broadcast
By default, the router broadcasts its Wi-Fi network name (SSID) so devices can find it. If you
change this setting to not allow the broadcast, wireless devices will not find your router unless
they are configured with the same SSID.
Note: Turning off SSID broadcast nullifies the wireless network discovery
feature of some products such as Windows XP, but the data is still
fully exposed to a determined snoop using specialized test
equipment like wireless sniffers. If you allow the broadcast, be sure
to keep wireless security enabled.
Restrict Access by MAC Address
You can enhance your network security by allowing access to only specific PCs based on
their Media Access Control (MAC) addresses. You can restrict access to only trusted PCs so
that unknown PCs cannot wirelessly connect to the router. The wireless station MAC address
filtering adds additional security protection to the wireless security option that you have in
force. The access list determines which wireless hardware devices are allowed to connect to
the router by MAC address. See Advanced Wireless Settings on page 74 for the procedure.
Add Clients (Computers or Devices) to Your Network
Choose either the manual or the WPS method to add wireless computers or devices to your
wireless network.
Manual Method
1. Open the software that manages your wireless connections on the wireless device
(laptop computer, gaming device, iPhone) that you want to connect to your router. This
software scans for all wireless networks in your area.
2. Look for your network and select it. If you did not change the name of your network during
the setup process, look for the default Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and select it. The default
Wi-Fi network name (SSID) is located on the product label on the bottom of the router.
3. Enter the router passphrase and click Connect. The default router passphrase is located on
the product label on the bottom of the router.
4. Repeat steps 1–3 to add other wireless devices.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Method
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard that lets you easily join a secure wireless network
with WPA or WPA2 wireless security. The router automatically sets security for each
26 | Chapter 3. Wireless Settings
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
computer or device that uses WPS to join the wireless network. To use WPS, make sure that
your wireless devices are Wi-Fi certified and support WPS. NETGEAR products that use
WPS call it Push 'N' Connect.1
Note: If the wireless network name (SSID) changes each time you add a
WPS client, the Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box on the
Advanced Wireless Settings screen has been cleared. See
Advanced Wireless Settings on page 74 for more information about
this setting.
You can use a WPS button or the router interface method to add wireless computers and
devices to your wireless network.
WPS Button Method
1. Press the
WPS button on the router front panel.
2. Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your wireless computer or device, or follow the
WPS instructions that came with the computer. The device is now connected to your router.

Wireless Settings Screen
The Wireless Settings screen lets you view or change the wireless network settings. When
you set up security, note the new settings and save them in a secure location.
Note: If you use a wireless computer to change the wireless network name
(SSID) or security options, you are disconnected when you click
Apply. To avoid this problem, use a computer with a wired
connection to access the router.
Consider Every Device on Your Network
Before you begin, check the following:
•
Every wireless computer has to be able to obtain an IP address by DHCP from the router
as described in Use Standard TCP/IP Properties for DHCP on page 15.
•
Each computer or wireless adapter in your network has to have the same SSID and
wireless mode (bandwidth/data rate) as the router. Check that the wireless adapter on
each computer can support the mode and security option you want to use.
•
The security option on each wireless device in the network has to match the router. For
example, if you select a security option that requires a passphrase, be sure to use same
passphrase for each wireless computer in the network.

Block Services
Services are functions performed by server computers at the request of client computers. For
example, Web servers serve Web pages, time servers serve time and date information, and
game hosts serve data about other players’ moves. When a computer on the Internet sends
a request for service to a server computer, the requested service is identified by a service or
port number. This number appears as the destination port number in the transmitted IP
packets. For example, a packet that is sent with destination port number 80 is an HTTP (Web
server) request.
You can block computers on your local network from using certain Internet services. This is
called service blocking or port filtering. You can add an outbound rule to block Internet access
from a local computer based on the computer, Internet site, time of day, and type of service.
To block access to Internet services:
1. Select Content Filtering > Block Services . The Block Services screen displays.
2. Enable service blocking by selecting either Per Schedule or Always, and then click Apply.
To block by schedule, be sure to specify a time period in the Schedule screen. For
information about scheduling, see Schedule Services on page 40.

router’s memory. If the router cannot email the log file, the log buffer
might fill up. In this case, the router overwrites the log and discards
its contents.
Port Forwarding
Because the router uses Network Address Translation (NAT), your network presents only one
IP address to the Internet, and outside users cannot directly address any of your local
computers. However, with port forwarding you can make a local server (for example, a Web
server or game server) visible and available to the Internet.
Note: Some residential broadband ISP accounts do not let you run server
processes (such as a Web or FTP server) from your location. Your
ISP might periodically check for servers and suspend your account if
it discovers any active services at your location. If you are unsure,
refer to the acceptable use policy of your ISP.
Port forwarding tells the router to direct inbound traffic for a particular service to one local
server based on the destination port number. Port forwarding opens holes in your firewall.
Enable only those ports that are necessary for your network.
Before starting, you need to determine which type of service, application, or game you will
provide, and the local IP address of the computer that will provide the service. Be sure the
computer’s IP address never changes.
The following are some considerations for port forwarding:
•
If your external IP address is assigned dynamically by your ISP, the IP address might
change periodically as the DHCP lease expires. Consider using the Dynamic DNS screen
described in Dynamic DNS so that external users can always find your network.
•
If the IP address of the local server computer is assigned by DHCP, it might change when
the computer is rebooted. To avoid this, use the Reserved IP address feature in the LAN
Setup screen to keep the computer’s IP address constant.
42 | Chapter 4. Content Filtering Settings
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
•
Local computers access the local server using the computer’s local LAN address.
Attempts by local computers to access the server using the external WAN IP address fail.
To configure port forwarding to a local server:
1. Select Advanced > Port Forwarding/Port T riggering.
2. Select the Port Forwarding radio button as the service type as shown in the following
figure:
3. From the Service Name list, select the service or game that you will host on your network.
If the service does not appear in the list, you can add a custom service as described in
the following section..
4. In the Server IP Address field, enter the last digit of the IP address of your local computer
that will provide this service.
5. Click Add. The service appears in the list in the screen.
Note: To edit or delete a port forwarding entry in the table, select the
button next to the service name and click Edit Service or Delete
Service.
Add a Custom Service
To define a service, game, or application that does not appear in the Service Name list, you
need to know which port number or range of numbers is used by the application. You can
usually find out by contacting the publisher of the application or user groups or newsgroups.

the Ending Port field.
5. In the Server IP Address field, enter the IP address of your local computer that will
provide this service.
6. Click Apply. The service appears in the list in the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering screen.
Application Example: Making a Local Web Server Public
If you host a Web server on your local network, you can use port forwarding to allow Web
requests from anyone on the Internet to reach your Web server.
To make a local Web server public:
1. Assign your Web server either a fixed IP address or a dynamic IP address using DHCP
address reservation, as explained in IP Address Reservation on page 72. In this
example, your router will always give your Web server an IP address of 192.168.1.33.
2. In the Port Forwarding screen, configure the router to forward the HTTP service to the local
address of your Web server at 192.168.1.33.
HTTP (port 80) is the standard protocol for Web servers.
3. (Optional) Register a host name with a Dynamic DNS service, and configure your router to
use the name as described in Dynamic DNS on page 70.
To access your Web server from the Internet, a remote user needs to know the IP
address that has been assigned by your ISP. However, if you use a Dynamic DNS
44 | Chapter 4. Content Filtering Settings
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
service, the remote user can reach your server by a user-friendly Internet name, such as
mynetgear.dyndns.org.
Port Triggering
Port triggering is a dynamic extension of port forwarding that is useful in these cases:
•
More than one local computer needs port forwarding for the same application (but not
simultaneously).
•
An application needs to open incoming ports that are different from the outgoing port.
When port triggering is enabled, the router monitors outbound traffic looking for a specified
outbound “trigger” port. When the router detects outbound traffic on that port, it remembers
the IP address of the local computer that sent the data. The router then temporarily opens the
specified incoming port or ports, and forwards incoming traffic on the triggered ports to the
triggering computer.
While port forwarding creates a static mapping of a port number or range to a single local
computer, port triggering can dynamically open ports to any computer that needs them and
can close the ports when they are no longer needed.
Note: If you use applications such as multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer
connections, real-time communications such as instant messaging,
or remote assistance (a feature in Windows XP), you should also
enable Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) according to the instructions
in Universal Plug and Play on page 80.
To configure port triggering, you need to know which inbound ports the application needs.
Also, you need to know the number of the outbound port that will trigger the opening of the
inbound ports. You can usually determine this information by contacting the publisher of the
application or user groups or newsgroups.
To set up port triggering:
1. Select Advanced > Port Forwarding/Port Triggering. The Forwarding/Port Triggering
screen displays.

2. Select the Port Triggering radio button. The port triggering information displays.
3. Clear the Disable Port Triggering check box.
If you set up port triggering and then select the Disable Port Triggering check box, port
triggering is disabled, but the port triggering set up is retained even though it is not used.
4. In the Port Triggering Timeout field, enter a value up to 9999 minutes. This value controls the
inactivity timer for the designated inbound ports. The inbound ports close when the inactivity
time expires. This is required because the router cannot be sure when the application has
terminated.
5. Click Add Service to display the following screen:
6. In the Service Name field, type a descriptive service name.
7. In the Service User field, select Any (the default) to allow this service to be used by any
computer on the Internet. Otherwise, select Single address, and enter the IP address of
one computer to restrict the service to a particular computer.
8. Select the service type, either TCP or UDP or both (TCP/UDP). If you are not sure, select
TCP/UDP.
9. In the Triggering Port field, enter the number of the outbound traffic port that will cause the
inbound ports to be opened.

you use online games and video conferencing applications that are incompatible with
NAT. See Default DMZ Server on page 69.
•
Respond to Ping on Internet WAN Port. If you want the router to respond to a ping from
the Internet, select this check box. This should be used only as a diagnostic tool, because
it allows your router to be discovered. Do not select this check box unless you have a
specific reason to do so.

N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
Default DMZ Server
The default demilitarized zone (DMZ) server feature is helpful when you use online games
and video conferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. The router is
programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work correctly with them, but
there are other applications that might not function well. In some cases, one local computer
can run the application correctly if that computer’s IP address is entered as the default DMZ
server.
Note: For security reasons, you should avoid using the default DMZ server
feature. When a computer is designated as the default DMZ server,
it loses much of the protection of the firewall. If compromised over
the Internet, the computer can be used to attack your network.
Incoming traffic from the Internet is usually discarded by the router unless the traffic is a
response to one of your local computers or a service that you have configured in the Ports
screen. Instead of discarding this traffic, you can have it forwarded to one computer on your
network. This computer is called the default DMZ server.
To assign a computer or server to be a default DMZ server:
1. In the WAN Setup screen, select the Default DMZ Server check box. The following
screen displays:
2. Type the IP address for that server and click Apply.

Dynamic DNS
If your network has a permanently assigned IP address, you can register a domain name that
is linked to your IP address by public Domain Name Servers (DNS). More commonly, Internet
accounts have dynamically assigned IP addresses in which the IP addresses change
frequently. In this case, use a commercial Dynamic DNS service to register your domain to its
IP address and forward traffic directed at your domain to your current IP address.
The router has a client that can connect to a Dynamic DNS service provider. Once you set up
Dynamic DNS in the router, when your IP address changes, your router contacts your
Dynamic DNS service provider, logs in to your account, and registers your new IP address.
To set up Dynamic DNS:
1. Select Advanced > Dynamic DNS to display the following screen.
2. Access the website of one of the Dynamic DNS service providers whose names appear in
the Service Provider drop-down list, and register for an account. For example, for
dyndns.org, go to www.dyndns.org.
3. Select the Use a Dynamic DNS Service check box.
4. Select the name of your Dynamic DNS service provider.
5. Type the host name that your Dynamic DNS service provider gave you. This is sometimes
called the domain name. If your URL is myName.dyndns.org, your host name is myName.
6. Type the user name for your Dynamic DNS account.
7. Type the password (or key) for your Dynamic DNS account.
8. Click Apply to save your settings.
If your ISP assigns a private WAN IP address such as 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x, the
Dynamic DNS service does not work because private addresses are not routed on the
Internet.

LAN Setup
The LAN Setup screen allows configuration of LAN IP services such as DHCP and Routing
Information Protocol (RIP). The router is shipped preconfigured to use private IP addresses
on the LAN side and to act as a DHCP server. The router’s default LAN IP configuration is as
follows:
•
LAN IP address. 192.168.1.1
•
Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
These addresses are part of the private address range designated by the Internet
Engineering Task Force (IETF http://www.ietf.org) for use in private networks, and should be
suitable in most applications. If your network has a requirement to use a different IP
addressing scheme, you can make those changes in the LAN Setup screen.
Note: If you change the LAN IP address of the router while connected
through the browser, you are disconnected. To reconnect, open a
new connection to the new IP address and log in.
To change the LAN settings:
1. Select Advanced > LAN Setup. The following screen displays:
2. Enter the LAN Setup configuration, and click Apply to save your changes.

LAN Setup Screen Settings
•
IP Address. The LAN IP address of the router.
•
IP Subnet Mask. The LAN subnet mask of the router. Combined with the IP address, the
IP subnet mask allows a device to know which other addresses are local to it, and which
have to be reached through a gateway or router.
•
Use Router as DHCP Server. By default, the router is a Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) server, allowing it to assign IP, DNS server, and default gateway
addresses to all computers connected to the router’s LAN. The assigned default gateway
address is the LAN address of the router. IP addresses are assigned to the attached PCs
from a pool of addresses specified in this screen. Each pool address is tested before it is
assigned to avoid duplicate addresses on the LAN.
For most applications, the default DHCP and TCP/IP settings of the router are
satisfactory.
•
Reserved IP Addresses Setup. When you specify a reserved IP address for a computer
on the LAN, that computer always receives the same IP address each time it accesses
the router’s DHCP server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to servers that
require permanent IP settings.
IP Address Reservation
To reserve an IP address:
1. Select Advanced > LAN Setup and click the Add button.
2. In the IP Address field, type the IP address to assign to the computer or server. Choose an
IP address from the router’s LAN subnet, such as 192.168.0.x.
3. Type the MAC address of the computer or server.
Tip: If the computer is already on your network, copy its MAC address from
the Attached Devices screen and paste it here.
4. Click Apply to enter the reserved address into the table.
Note: The reserved address is not assigned until the next time the computer
contacts the router’s DHCP server. Reboot the computer or access its IP
configuration to force a DHCP release and renew.
To edit or delete a reserved address entry:
1. Select the radio button next to the reserved address that you want to edit or delete.
2. Click Edit or Delete.

Quality of Service (QoS)
Quality of Service (QoS) is an advanced feature that can be used to prioritize some types of
traffic ahead of others. The router can provide QoS prioritization over the wireless link and on
the Internet connection.
The router supports Wi-Fi Multimedia Quality of Service (WMM QoS) to prioritize wireless
voice and video traffic over the wireless link. WMM QoS provides prioritization of wireless
data packets from different applications based on four access categories: voice, video, best
effort, and background. For an application to receive the benefits of WMM QoS, both it and
the client running that application have to have WMM enabled. Legacy applications that do
not support WMM, and applications that do not require QoS, are assigned to the best effort
category, which receives a lower priority than voice and video.
QoS for Internet Access
To specify prioritization of traffic, you need to add or create a policy for the type of traffic.
1. Select Advanced > QoS Setup . The following screen displays:

Static Routes
Static routes provide additional routing information to your router. Under normal
circumstances, the router has adequate routing information after it has been configured for
Internet access, and you do not need to configure additional static routes. You configure
static routes only for unusual cases such as multiple routers or multiple IP subnets located on
your network.
Static Route Example
As an example of when a static route is needed, consider the following case:
•
Your primary Internet access is through a cable modem to an ISP.
•
You have an ISDN router on your home network for connecting to the company where
you are employed. This router’s address on your LAN is 192.168.1.100.
•
Your company’s network address is 134.177.0.0.
When you first configured your router, two implicit static routes were created. A default route
was created with your ISP as the router, and a second static route was created to your local
network for all 192.168.0.x addresses. With this configuration, if you attempt to access a
device on the 134.177.0.0 network, your router forwards your request to the ISP. The ISP
forwards your request to the company where you are employed, and the request is likely to
be denied by the company’s firewall.
In this case you need to define a static route,
telling your router that 134.177.0.0 should be
accessed through the ISDN router at
192.168.0.100.
In this example:
•
The Destination IP Address and IP
Subnet Mask fields specify that this static
route applies to all 134.177.x.x
addresses.
•
The Gateway IP Address field specifies
that all traffic for these addresses is to be
forwarded to the ISDN router at
192.168.0.100.
•
The value in the Metric field represents
the number of routers between your
network and the destination. This is a direct connection, so it can be set to the minimum
value of 2.
•
The Private check box is selected only as a precautionary security measure in case RIP
is activated.

255.255.255.255.
•
Enter the gateway IP address, which has to be a router on the same LAN segment as
the router.
•
In the Metric field, enter a number between 2 and 15 as the metric value. This
represents the number of routers between your network and the destination. Usually,
a setting of 2 or 3 works.

Universal Plug and Play
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) helps devices, such as Internet appliances and computers,
access the network and connect to other devices as needed. UPnP devices can
automatically discover the services from other registered UPnP devices on the network.
1. Select Advanced > UPnP to display the following screen:
2. Specify the settings as follows:
• Turn UPnP On. UPnP can be enabled or disabled for automatic device configuration.
The default setting for UPnP is enabled. If UPnP is disabled, the router does not allow
any device to automatically control the resources, such as port forwarding (mapping),
of the router.
•
Advertisement Period. The advertisement period is how often the router advertises
(broadcasts) its UPnP information. This value can range from 1 to 1440 minutes. The
default period is 30 minutes. Shorter durations ensure that control points have current
device status at the expense of additional network traffic. Longer durations might
compromise the freshness of the device status but can significantly reduce network
traffic.
•
Advertisement Time to Live. This is measured in hops (steps) for each UPnP packet
sent. Hops are the steps allowed to propagate for each UPnP advertisement before it
disappears. The number of hops can range from 1 to 255. The default value is 4 hops,
which works for most home networks. If you notice that some devices are not being
updated or reached correctly, you might need to increase this value a little.
•
UPnP Portmap Table. The UPnP Portmap Table displays the IP address of each
UPnP device that is currently accessing the router and which ports (internal and
external) that device has opened. The UPnP Portmap Table also displays what type
of port is opened and if that port is still active for each IP address.

Quick Tips
This section describes tips for troubleshooting some common problems
Sequence to Restart Your Network
Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:
1. Turn off and unplug the modem.
2. Turn off the wireless router and computers.
3. Plug in the modem and turn it on. Wait 2 minutes.
4. Turn on the wireless router and wait 2 minutes.
5. Turn on the computers.
Power LED
Check the Power LED to verify correct router operation.
If the Power LED does not turn off within 2 minutes after you turn the router on, reset the
router according to the instructions in Restoring the Factory Settings and Password on
page 93.
Check Ethernet Cable Connections
Make sure that the Ethernet cables are securely plugged in.
•
The Internet status light on the wireless router is on if the Ethernet cable connecting the
wireless router and the modem is plugged in securely and the modem and wireless router
are turned on.
•
For each powered-on computer connected to the wireless router by an Ethernet cable,
the corresponding numbered router LAN port light is on.
Wireless Settings
Make sure that the wireless settings in the computer and router match exactly.
•
For a wirelessly connected computer, the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless
security settings of the router and wireless computer need to match exactly.
•
If you set up an access list in the Advanced Wireless Settings screen, you have to add
each wireless computer’s MAC address to the router’s access list.
88 | Chapter 8. Troubleshooting
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
Network Settings
Make sure that the network settings of the computer are correct.
•
Wired and wirelessly connected computers need to have network (IP) addresses on the
same network as the router. The simplest way to do this is to configure each computer to
obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP.
•
Some cable modem service providers require you to use the MAC address of the
computer initially registered on the account. You can view the MAC address in the
Attached Devices screen.
Troubleshooting with the LEDs
After you turn on power to the router, the following sequence of events should occur:
1. When power is first applied, verify that the Power LED
is on.
2. After approximately 2 minutes, verify that:
• The Power LED is solid green.
•
The Internet LED is on.
•
A numbered Ethernet port light is on for any local port that is connected to a
computer. This indicates that a link has been established to the connected device.
The LEDs on the front panel of the router can be used for troubleshooting.
Power LED Is Off or Blinking
•
Make sure that the power cord is securely connected to your router and that the power
adapter is securely connected to a functioning power outlet.
•
Check that you are using the 12V DC, 2.5A power adapter that NETGEAR supplied for
this product.
•
If the Power LED alternately blinks green every second, the router software is corrupted.
This can happen if a firmware upgrade is interrupted, or if the router detects a problem
with the firmware. If the error persists, you have a hardware problem. For recovery
instructions, or help with a hardware problem, contact Technical Support at
www.netgear.com/support.
LEDs Never Turn Off
When the router is turned on, the LEDs turns on for about 10 seconds and then turn off. If all
the LEDs stay on, there is a fault within the router.
If all LEDs are still on 1 minute after power-up:
•
Cycle the power to see if the router recovers.
Chapter 8. Troubleshooting
|
89
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
•
Clear the router’s configuration to factory defaults as explained in Restoring the Factory
Settings and Password on page 93.
If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should contact Technical
Support at www.netgear.com/support.
Internet or Ethernet Port LEDs Are Off
If either the Ethernet port LEDs or the Internet LED does not light when the Ethernet
connection is made, check the following:
•
Make sure that the Ethernet cable connections are secure at the router and at the modem
or computer.
•
Make sure that power is turned on to the connected modem or computer.
•
Be sure that you are using the correct cable:
When connecting the router’s Internet port to a cable or DSL modem, use the cable that
was supplied with the cable or DSL modem. This cable could be a standard
straight-through Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable.
Wireless LED Is Off
If the Wireless LED stays off, check to see if the Wireless On/Off button on the router has
been pressed. This button turns the wireless radios in the router on and off. The 2.4 GHz and
5 GHz LEDs are lit when the wireless radio is turned on.
Cannot Log In to the Router
If you are unable to log in to the router from a computer on your local network, check the
following:
•
If you are using an Ethernet-connected computer, check the Ethernet connection
between the computer and the router as described in the previous section.
•
Make sure that your computer’s IP address is on the same subnet as the router. If you are
using the recommended addressing scheme, your computer’s address should be in the
range of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254.
•
If your computer’s IP address is shown as 169.254.x.x, recent versions of Windows and
MacOS will generate and assign an IP address if the computer cannot reach a DHCP
server. These auto-generated addresses are in the range of 169.254.x.x. If your IP
address is in this range, check the connection from the computer to the router, and reboot
your computer.
•
If your router’s IP address was changed and you do not know the current IP address,
clear the router’s configuration to factory defaults. This sets the router’s IP address to
192.168.1.1. This procedure is explained in Factory Settings on page 95.
•
Make sure that your browser has Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX enabled. If you are using
Internet Explorer, click Refresh to be sure that the Java applet is loaded.
90 | Chapter 8. Troubleshooting
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
•
Try quitting the browser and launching it again.
•
Make sure that you are using the correct login information. The factory default login name
is admin, and the password is password. Make sure that Caps Lock is off when you
enter this information.
Cannot Access the Internet
If you can access your router but you are unable to access the Internet, first determine
whether the router can obtain an IP address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Unless your ISP provides a fixed IP address, your router must request an IP address from
the ISP. You can determine whether the request was successful using the Router Status
screen.
To check the WAN IP address:
1. Start your browser, and select an external site such as http://www.netgear.com.
2. Access the main menu of the router’s configuration at http://www.routerlogin.net.
3. Select Maintenance > Router Status.
4. Check that an IP address is shown for the Internet port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your router has
not obtained an IP address from your ISP.
If your router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP, you might need to force your cable or
DSL modem to recognize your new router by restarting your network, as described in
Sequence to Restart Your Network on page 88.
If your router is still unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem might be one of
the following:
•
Your Internet service provider (ISP) might require a login program.
Ask your ISP whether they require PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of
login.
•
If your ISP requires a login, the login name and password might be set incorrectly.
•
Your ISP might check for your computer’s host name.
Assign the computer host name of your ISP account as the account name in the Basic
Settings screen.
•
Your ISP allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet and might check
for your computer’s MAC address. In this case, do one of the following:
-
Inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the
router’s MAC address.
-
Configure your router to clone your computer’s MAC address.
If your router can obtain an IP address, but your computer is unable to load any Web pages
from the Internet:
•
Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses.
Chapter 8. Troubleshooting
|
91
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www
addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically, your ISP provides the addresses of one or
two DNS servers for your use. If you entered a DNS address during the router’s
configuration, reboot your computer, and verify the DNS address.You can configure your
computer manually with DNS addresses, as explained in your operating system
documentation.
•
Your computer might not have the router configured as its TCP/IP gateway.
If your computer obtains its information from the router by DHCP, reboot the computer,
and verify the gateway address.
•
You might be running login software that is no longer needed.
If your ISP provided a program to log you in to the Internet (such as WinPoET), you no
longer need to run that software after installing your router. You might need to go to
Internet Explorer and select Tools > Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and
select Never dial a connection.
Changes Not Saved
If the router does not save the changes you make in the router interface, check the following:
•
When entering configuration settings, always click the Apply button before moving to
another screen or tab, or your changes are lost.
•
Click the Refresh or Reload button in the Web browser. The changes might have
occurred, but the old settings might be in the Web browser’s cache.
Incorrect Date or Time
Select Security > Schedule to display the current date and time. The router uses the Network
Time Protocol (NTP) to obtain the current time from one of several network time servers on
the Internet. Each entry in the log is stamped with the date and time of day. Problems with the
date and time function can include the following:
•
Date shown is January 1, 2000. This means the router has not yet successfully reached a
network time server. Check that your Internet access is configured correctly. If you have
just finished setting up the router, wait at least 5 minutes, and check the date and time
again.
•
Time is off by one hour. The router does not automatically sense daylight savings time. In
the Schedule screen, select the Automatically adjust for daylight savings time check
box.
92 | Chapter 8. Troubleshooting
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700v3 User Manual
Wireless Connectivity
If you are having trouble connecting wirelessly to the router, try to isolate the problem.
•
Does the wireless device or computer that you are using find your wireless network?
If not, check the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz LEDs on the front of the router. They should be lit. If
they aren’t, you can press the Wireless button on the front of the router to turn the routers
wireless radios back on.
If you disabled the router’s SSID broadcast, then your wireless network is hidden and
does not show up in your wireless client's scanning list. (By default, SSID broadcast is
enabled.)
•
If your wireless device finds the network but you cannot join the network, check to make
sure your wireless device is compatible with the network that you selected (2.4 GHz or
5 GHz).
•
Does your wireless device support the security that you are using for your wireless
network (WPA or WPA2)?
•
If you want to check the wireless settings for the router, use an Ethernet cable to connect
a computer to a LAN port on the router. Then log in to the router and select Setup >
Wireless Settings see (Wireless Settings Screen on page 28).
Note: Be sure to configure both sections (for 2.4 GHz b/g/n and 5 GHz a/n) on
the Wireless Settings screen and to click Apply if you make changes.
Wireless Signal Strength
If your wireless device finds your network, but the signal strength is weak, check these
conditions:
•
Is your router too far from your computer, or too close? Place your computer near the
router, but at least 6 feet away, and see whether the signal strength improves.
•
Is your wireless signal blocked by objects between the router and your computer?
Restoring the Factory Settings and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory settings, changing the router’s administration
password back to password. You can erase the current configuration and restore factory
defaults in two ways:
•
Use the Erase function of the router (see Erase on page 52).
•
Use the Restore Factory Settings button on the bottom of the router. See Factory Settings
on page 95. If you restore the factory settings and the wireless router fails to restart, or
the green Power LED continues to blink, the unit might be defective. If the error persists,
you might have a hardware problem and should contact Technical Support at
http://www.netgear.com/support.
