Position Your Router
The router lets you access your network 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.
Additionally, other wireless access points in and around your home might affect your router’s
signal. Wireless access points are routers, repeaters, WiFi range extenders, or any other
device that emits a wireless signal for network access.

To position your router:
1. Place your router near the center of the area where your computers and other devices
operate, and within line of sight to your wireless devices.
2. Make sure that the router is within reach of an AC power outlet and near Ethernet cables
for wired computers.
3. Place the router in an elevated location, minimizing the number walls and ceilings between
the router and your other devices.

Router Setup Preparation
You can set up your router with NETGEAR genie automatically, or you can use the genie
menus and screens to set up your router manually. However, before you start the setup
process, you must have your ISP information on hand and make sure that the laptops,
computers, and other devices in the network have the settings described here.
Use Standard TCP/IP Properties for DHCP
If you set up your computer to use a static IP address, you must change the settings so that it
uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
Gather ISP Information
For DSL broadband service, when your Internet service starts, your Internet service provider
(ISP) typically gives you all the information needed to connect to the Internet. You might need
this information to set up the router to use your Internet service. If you cannot locate this
information, ask your ISP to provide it. When your Internet connection is working, you no
longer need to launch the ISP login program on your computer to access the Internet. When
you start an Internet application, your router automatically logs you in. You might need the
following information to set up your router:
•
The ISP configuration information for your DSL account
•
ISP login name and password
•
Fixed or static IP address settings (special deployment by ISP; this situation is rare)
Wireless Devices and Security Settings
Make sure that the wireless device or computer that you are using supports WPA or WPA2
wireless security, which is the wireless security supported by the router. For information
about the router’s preconfigured security settings, see Basic Wireless Settings on page 28.
Types of Logins and Access
Different types of logins have different purposes. It is important that you understand the
difference so that you know which login to use when.
•
Router login. The user name admin logs you in to the router user interface from
NETGEAR genie. For more information, see Log In to Your Router After Installation on
page 18.
•
ISP login. The login that your ISP provided logs you in to your Internet service. Your
service provider provided you with this login information in a letter or some other way. If
you cannot find this login information, contact your service provider.

JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
•
Wireless network login. Your router is preset with a unique wireless network name
(SSID) and password for wireless access. This information is on the label on your router.
NETGEAR genie Setup
NETGEAR genie runs on any device with a web browser. It is the easiest way to set up the
router because it automates many of the steps and verifies that those steps have been
successfully completed. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.

To use NETGEAR genie to set up your router:
1. Connect the router to a power source.
2. Make sure that your device is connected with an Ethernet cable to your router.
3. Launch your Internet browser.
• If you are setting up the Internet connection for your router for the first time, the
browser automatically goes to http://www.routerlogin.net, and the NETGEAR genie
screen displays.
•
If you already used NETGEAR genie, type http://www.routerlogin.net in the
address field of your browser to display the NETGEAR genie screen. For more
information, see Log In to Your Router After Installation on page 18.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the NETGEAR genie setup.
NETGEAR genie guides you through connecting the router to the Internet.
If the browser cannot display the web page, do the following:
•
Make sure that the computer is connected to one of the four Ethernet ports, or wirelessly
to the router.
•
Make sure that the router is running. If it is, its WiFi LED is lit.
•
Close and reopen the browser to make sure that the browser does not cache the
previous page.
•
Browse to http://routerlogin.net.
•
If the computer is set to a static or fixed IP address (this situation is uncommon), change
it to obtain an IP address automatically from the router.
If the router does not connect to the Internet, do the following:
1. To be sure that you have selected the correct options and typed everything correctly,
review the router’s settings.
2. Contact your ISP to verify that you have the correct configuration information.
3. Read Chapter 8, Troubleshooting. If problems persist, register your NETGEAR product and
contact NETGEAR technical support.

3. Enter the router wireless network password (passphrase) and click the Connect button.
The default router passphrase is on the product label on the router.
4. Repeat Steps 1–3 to add other wireless devices.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup Method
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) lets you connect to a secure WiFi network without typing its
password. Instead, press a button or enter a PIN. NETGEAR calls WPS Push 'N' Connect.
During the connection process, the client gets the security settings from the router so that
every device in the network has the same security settings.
Some older WiFi equipment is not compatible with WPS. WPS does not support WEP
security. You cannot use WPS to connect a WEP client to the router’s WiFi network. WPS
works only with WPA2or WPA wireless security.

To use WPS to join the wireless network:
1. Press and hold the WPS/Reset button on the back of the router with the end of a paper
clip or a similar object for one to three seconds.
The WiFi LED blinks.
2. Within two minutes, press the WPS button on your computer wireless device or follow the
WPS instructions that came with the device.
The device is now connected to your router’s WiFi network.
3. Repeat Steps 1–2 to add other WPS wireless devices.

denial of service attacks such as Syn flood, Smurf Attack, Ping of Death, Teardrop
Attack, UDP Flood, ARP Attack, Spoofing ICMP, Null Scan, and many others. By
default, this check box is cleared.
•
Default DMZ Server. A demilitarized zone (DMZ) server can be helpful when you
play online games and use videoconferencing. Be careful when you use this feature
because it makes the firewall security less effective. For more information, see
Default DMZ Server on page 44.
•
Respond to Ping on Internet Port. If you want the router to respond to a ping from
the Internet, select this check box. By default, this check box is cleared. Use this
feature 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.
•
MTU Size (in bytes). The normal MTU (maximum transmit unit) value for most
Ethernet networks is 1500 bytes, or 1492 bytes for PPPoE connections. For some
ISPs, you might need to reduce the MTU. This change is rarely required. Do not make
this change unless you are sure that it is necessary for your ISP connection. For more
information, see Change the MTU Size on page 45.
•
NAT Filtering. Network Address Translation (NAT) determines how the router
processes inbound traffic:

-
Secured NAT provides a secured firewall to protect the computers on the LAN
from attacks from the Internet, but might prevent some Internet games,
point-to-point applications, or multimedia applications from functioning. By default,
the Secured radio button is selected.
-
Open NAT provides a much less secured firewall, but allows almost all Internet
applications to function.
•
Disable SIP ALG. Some Voice over IP (VoIP) applications do not function well with
the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Application Layer Gateway (ALG). Selecting the
check box to turn off the SIP ALG might enable connected VoIP devices to create and
accept a VoIP call through the router. By default, this check box is cleared.
•
Disable IGMP Proxying. IGMP proxying allows computers on the LAN to receive the
multicast traffic they are subscribed to from the Internet. By default, this check box is
selected, and the IGMP proxy is disabled, preventing multicast traffic from the Internet
to the LAN. Clear the Disable IGMP Proxying check box to allow multicast traffic
from the Internet to the LAN.
•
VPN Passthrough. The router supports VPN passthrough for IPSec, PPTP, and
L2TP.
-
IPSec Passthrough. To enable or disable IPSec passthrough, select the Enable
or Disabled radio button.

Default DMZ Server
The default DMZ server feature is helpful when you use some online games and
videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with Network Address Translation
(NAT). The router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to function
correctly with them, but other applications exist 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.
WARNING:
DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the
default DMZ server loses much of the protection of the firewall and
is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, the DMZ
server computer can be used to attack other computers on your
network.

Change the MTU Size
The maximum transmission unit (MTU) is the largest data packet a network device transmits.
When one network device communicates across the Internet with another, the data packets
travel through many devices along the way. If any device in the data path has a lower MTU
setting than the other devices, the data packets must be split or fragmented to accommodate
the device with the smallest MTU.
The best MTU setting for NETGEAR equipment is often just the default value, and changing
the value might fix one problem but cause another.
WARNING:
An incorrect MTU setting can cause Internet communication
problems such as the inability to access certain websites, frames
within websites, secure login pages, or FTP or POP servers.
Leave the MTU unchanged unless one of these situations occurs:
•
You have problems connecting to your ISP or other Internet service, and technical
support of either the ISP or NETGEAR recommends changing the MTU setting. These
web-based applications might require an MTU change:
-
A secure website that does not open, or displays only part of a web page
-
Yahoo email
-
MSN portal
-
America Online’s DSL service
•
You use VPN and have severe performance problems.
•
You used a program to optimize MTU for performance reasons, and now you have
connectivity or performance problems.
If you suspect an MTU problem, a common solution is to change the MTU to 1400. If you are
willing to experiment, you can gradually reduce the MTU from the maximum value of 1500
until the problem goes away.

LAN Setup
You can configure LAN IP services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
and Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
The router is shipped preconfigured to use private IP addresses on the LAN side and to
function as a DHCP server. The router’s default LAN IP configuration includes the following
settings:
•
LAN IP address. 192.168.1.1
•
Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
These addresses are part of the designated private address range for use in private networks
and are suitable for most applications. If your network requires the use of a different IP
addressing scheme, change the settings in the LAN Setup screen.

Combined with the IP address, the IP subnet mask allows a device to know which
other addresses are local to it, and which must be reached through a gateway or
router.
•
RIP Direction. Router Information Protocol (RIP) enables a router to exchange
routing information with other routers. This setting controls how the router sends and
genie ADVANCED Home
47
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
receives RIP packets. Both is the default setting. With the Both or Out Only setting,
the router broadcasts its routing table periodically. With the Both or In Only setting,
the router incorporates the RIP information that it receives.
•
RIP Version. This setting controls the format and the broadcasting method of the RIP
packets that the router sends. It recognizes both formats when receiving. By default,
the RIP function is disabled. Three RIP versions exist:
-
RIP-1 is universally supported. It is adequate for most networks, unless you have
an unusual network setup.
-
RIP-2B uses subnet broadcasting.

Use Router as DHCP Server
By default, the router functions as a DHCP server, enabling it to assign IP, DNS server, and
default gateway addresses to all computers and devices that are connected to the router’s
LAN. The assigned default gateway address is the LAN address of the router. The router
assigns IP addresses to the attached computers and devices from a pool of addresses
specified on the LAN Setup 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 function well.
You can specify the pool of IP addresses that are assigned by setting the starting IP address
and ending IP address. These addresses should be part of the same IP address subnet as
the router’s LAN IP address. Using the default addressing scheme, the default range is
192.168.1.2–192.168.1.254, although you might want to save part of this range for devices
with fixed addresses.
•
Starting IP Address. Specify the start of the range for the pool of IP addresses in the
same subnet as the router. The IP address 192.168.1.2 is the default starting address.
•
Ending IP Address. Specify the end of the range for the pool of IP addresses in the
same subnet as the router. The default ending IP address is 192.168.1.254.
The router delivers the following parameters to any LAN device that requests DHCP
information:
•
An IP address from the range that you have defined
genie ADVANCED Home
48
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
•
Subnet mask
•
Gateway IP address (the router’s LAN IP address)
•
DNS server IP address (the router’s LAN IP address)
You can use another device on your network as the DHCP server or you can manually
configure the network settings of all of your computers and devices.


not able to access the router.
Set Up Address Reservation
When you specify a reserved IP address for a computer or device on the LAN, that computer
or device always receives the same IP address each time it accesses the router’s DHCP
server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to computers or servers that require
permanent IP settings.

Wireless Distribution System
You can set up the router to be used as a wireless base station or wireless repeater in a
wireless distribution system (WDS). A WDS lets you expand a wireless network through
multiple access points instead of using a wired backbone to link them. A wireless base station
connects to the Internet, can have wired and wireless clients, and sends its wireless signal to
an access point that functions as a wireless repeater. A wireless repeater can also have
wired and wireless clients, but connects to the Internet through the wireless base station.
The following figure shows a wireless repeating scenario.
Repeater

Figure 6. Wireless repeating scenario
The router can function either as a base station or as a repeater:
•
Wireless base station. The router acts as the parent access point, bridging traffic to and
from the child repeater access point, as well as handling wireless and wired local
computers. To configure this mode, you must know the MAC address of the child
repeater access point.
•
Wireless repeater. The router sends all traffic from its local wireless or wired computers
to a remote access point. To configure this mode, you must know the MAC address of the
remote parent access point.
Advanced Settings
62
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
For you to set up a wireless network in a WDS, the following conditions must be met for both
access points:
•
Both access points must use the same SSID, wireless channel, and encryption mode.
•
Both access points must be on the same LAN IP subnet. That is, all the access point LAN
IP addresses are in the same network.
•
All LAN devices (wired and wireless computers) must be configured to operate in the
same LAN network address range as the access points.
•
The channel selection on the access points cannot be Auto (see Basic Wireless Settings
on page 28).
•
The security option must be WEP (or no security). The WEP option displays only if you
select Up to 54 Mbps from the Mode list on the Wireless Settings screen (see Basic
Wireless Settings on page 28).
Set Up the Base Station
The wireless repeating function works only in hub and spoke mode. The units cannot be

Static Routes
Static routes provide more routing information to your router. Under usual circumstances, the
router has adequate routing information after it has been configured for Internet access, and
you do not need to configure more static routes. You must configure static routes only for
unusual cases such as multiple routers or multiple IP subnets on your network.
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 gateway, and a second static route was created to your
local network for all 192.168.1.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 company’s firewall
denies the request.
In this case you must define a static route, telling your router that 134.177.0.0 should be
accessed through the ISDN router at 192.168.1.100. This example assume the following
settings:

•
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 should be

Universal Plug and Play
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) helps devices, such as Internet appliances and computers,
to 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.
Note: If you use applications such as multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer
connections, or real-time communications such as instant messaging
or remote assistance, enable UPnP.
Advanced Settings
68
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router

To configure Universal Plug and Play:
1. Log in to the router.
For more information, see Log In to Your Router After Installation on page 18.
2. Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > UPnP.
A screen similar to the following displays:
3. Select the Turn UPnP On check box.
This check box is selected by default. You can enable or disable UPnP for automatic
device configuration. If the Turn UPnP On check box is cleared, the router does not allow
any device to automatically control the resources, such as port forwarding (mapping), of
the router.
4. In the Advertisement Period (in minutes) field, type the advertisement period in minutes.
The advertisement period specifies how often the router 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 more
network traffic. Longer durations can compromise the freshness of the device status, but
can significantly reduce network traffic.
5. In the Advertisement Time to Live (in hops) filed type the advertisement time to live in
hops.
The time to live for the advertisement is measured in hops (steps) for each UPnP packet
sent. Hops are the steps a packet takes between routers. The number of hops can range
from 1 to 255. The default value for the advertisement time to live is 4 hops, which should
be fine for most home networks. If you notice that some devices are not being updated or
reached correctly, it might be necessary to increase this value.

•
Wireless Settings on page 80
•
Network Settings on page 80
Sequence to Restart Your Network

Make sure to restart your network in this sequence:
1. Unplug and turn off the cable or DSL broadband modem.
2. Turn off the router and computers.
3. Plug in the cable or DSL broadband modem and turn it on. Wait two minutes.
4. Turn on the router and wait two minutes.
5. Turn on the computers.
Check Ethernet Cable Connections
Make sure that the Ethernet cables are securely plugged in:
•
The Internet LED on the router is lit when the Ethernet cable connecting the router and
the modem is plugged in securely and the modem and router are turned on.
•
For each powered-on computer connected to the router by an Ethernet cable, the
corresponding numbered router Ethernet port LED is lit.
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 must match exactly.
•
If you set up an access list in the Advanced Wireless Settings screen, you must add each
wireless computer’s MAC address to the router’s access list.
Network Settings
Make sure that the network settings of the computer are correct:
•
Wired and wirelessly connected computers must have network IP addresses on the same
network as the router. The simplest way to meet this requirement is to configure each
computer to obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP.
Troubleshooting
80
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
•
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 (see Attached Devices on page 34).
Troubleshoot with the LEDs
After you turn on power to the router, the following sequence of events occurs:
1. When power is first applied, verify that the Power LED is on.
2. Verify that the Power LED turns amber within a few seconds, indicating that the self-test is
running.
3. After approximately 30 seconds, verify the following:
• The Power LED is solid green.
•
The Internet LED is lit.
•
A numbered LAN Ethernet port LED is on for any local port that is connected to a
computer. This condition indicates that a link has been established to the connected
device.
You can use the LEDs on the front panel of the router for troubleshooting.
Power LED Is Off or Blinking
If the Power LED is Off or blinking, try the following:
•
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.
•
Make sure that you are using the power adapter that NETGEAR supplied for this product.

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 you connect the router’s Internet port to a cable or DSL broadband modem, use
the cable that was supplied with the cable or DSL broadband modem. This cable can be
a standard straight-through Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable.
WiFi LED Is Off
If the WiFi LED stays off, check to see if the WiFi On/Off button on the router has been
pressed. This button turns the wireless radio in the router on and off. The WiFi LED is lit when
the wireless radio is turned on.
WPS Button Blinks Amber

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 Check Ethernet Cable Connections
on page 80.
•
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 is 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
Mac OS generate and assign an IP address if the computer cannot reach a DHCP server.
These autogenerated 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 90.
•
Make sure that your browser has Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX enabled. If you are using
Internet Explorer, click the Refresh button to be sure that the Java applet is loaded.
•
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.
•
If you are attempting to set up your NETGEAR router as a replacement for an ADSL
gateway in your network, the router cannot perform many gateway services. For
example, the router cannot convert ADSL or cable data into Ethernet networking
information. NETGEAR does not support such a configuration.
Troubleshooting
83
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
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 requests an IP address from the ISP. You
can see 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. Log in to the router.
For more information, see Log In to Your Router After Installation on page 18.
3. Click the ADVANCED tab.
The Router Status screen displays.
4. In the Internet Port pane, 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.
For more information about the Internet Port pane, see Internet Port Pane on page 73.
If your router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP, you might need to force your cable or
DSL broadband modem to recognize your new router by restarting your network. For more
information, see Sequence to Restart Your Network on page 80.
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 it requires 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 Internet
Setup 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.
Troubleshoot Internet Browsing
If your router can obtain an IP address, but your computer is unable to load any web pages
from the Internet, it might be for the following reasons:
•
Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses.
Troubleshooting
84
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
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. If you use Internet Explorer as
your browser, you might need to select Tools > Internet Options, click the Connections
tab, and select the Never dial a connection check box. Other browsers have similar
options.
Troubleshoot a PPPoE Internet Connection

To troubleshoot a PPPoE Internet connection:
1. Start your browser and select an external site such as http://www.netgear.com.
2. Log in to the router.
For more information, see Log In to Your Router After Installation on page 18.
3. Click the ADVANCED tab.
The Router Status screen displays.
4. On the Internet Port pane, click the Connection Status button.
For more information, see Connection Status on page 75. If the fields show valid
information, including valid IP addresses, your PPPoE connection is up and working.
If any of the fields show incomplete information, or no valid IP address, you can attempt
to reconnect by clicking the Connect button. The router continues to attempt to connect
indefinitely.
If you cannot connect after several minutes, you might be using an incorrect service name,
user name, or password. There might also be a provisioning problem with your ISP.
Note: Unless you connect manually, the router does not authenticate using
PPPoE until data is transmitted to the network.
Troubleshooting
85
JNR1010v2 N150 Wireless Router
Changes Not Saved
If the router does not save the changes you make through the NETGEAR genie screens,
check the following:
•
When you enter configuration settings on a screen, always click the Apply button before
you move 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.
Wireless Connectivity
If you are having trouble connecting wirelessly to the router, try to isolate the problem by
checking the following:
•
Does the wireless device or computer that you are using find your wireless network?
If not, check the WiFi LED on the front of the router. If it is not lit, you can press the WiFI
On/Off button on the front of the router to turn the router’s wireless radio back on.
If you disabled the router’s SSID broadcast, your wireless network is hidden and does not
display in your wireless client’s scanning list. By default, SSID broadcast is enabled.
•
Does your wireless device support the security that you are using for your wireless
network (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)?
•
If you want to view the wireless settings, select BASIC > Wireless Settings. For more
information, see Basic Wireless Settings on page 28.
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 (2 meters) away, and see whether the signal strength improves.
•
Is your wireless signal blocked by objects between the router and your computer?
Troubleshoot Your Network Using the Ping Utility
Most network devices and routers contain a ping utility that sends an echo request packet to
the designated device. The device then responds with an echo reply. You can troubleshoot a
network by using the ping utility on your computer or workstation.
Test the LAN Path to Your Router
You can ping the router from your computer to verify that the LAN path to your router is set up
correctly.

If the path is not working, you see this message:
Request timed out
If the path is not functioning correctly, you might have one of the following problems:
•
Wrong physical connections
For a wired connection, make sure that the numbered Ethernet port LED is lit for the port
to which you are connected.
Check that the appropriate LEDs are on for your network devices. If your router and
computer are connected to a separate Ethernet switch, make sure that the link LEDs are
lit for the switch ports that are connected to your computer and router.
•
Wrong network configuration
Verify that the Ethernet card driver software and TCP/IP software are both installed and
configured on your computer.
Verify that the IP address for your router and your computer are correct and that the
addresses are on the same subnet.
Test the Path from Your Computer to a Remote Device
After verifying that the LAN path works correctly, test the path from your computer to a
remote device.
1. From the Windows toolbar, click the Start button and select Run.
2. In the field provided, type:
ping -n 10 <IP address>
where <IP address> is the IP address of a remote device such as your ISP DNS server.
If the path is functioning correctly, replies like those examples shown in Test the LAN Path to
Your Router on page 86 are displayed.
If you do not receive replies, try the following:

•
Check that your computer has the IP address of your router listed as the default gateway.
If a DHCP server assigns the IP configuration of your computer, this information is not
visible on your computer’s Network Control Panel. Verify that the IP address of the router
is listed as the default gateway.
•
Check to see that the network address of your computer (the portion of the IP address
specified by the subnet mask) is different from the network address of the remote device.
•
Check that your cable or DSL broadband modem is connected and functioning.
•
If your ISP assigned a host name to your computer, enter that host name as the account
name in the Internet Settings screen.
•
Your ISP might be rejecting the Ethernet MAC addresses of all but one of your
computers.
Many broadband ISPs restrict access by allowing traffic only from the MAC address of your
broadband modem, but some ISPs additionally restrict access to the MAC address of a
single computer connected to that modem. If this is the case, configure your router to clone or
spoof the MAC address from the authorized computer.
