Netgear Network Problems

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Norbert Lieckfeldt, Jul 16, 2004.

  1. We are a small charity with a wired network, and one PC (Win98) linked to
    it through a wireless Netgear Access Point (WG602). Since this morning,
    wireless connectivity has been lost. The access point's power indicator and
    the network indicator are lit, the network activity indicator on the access
    point is blinking constantly, but no connection is being established.

    I have tried to access the page on the browser to see whether
    there are any settings I might need to change but it ony gives me a 'page
    not found' error message, while I can ping the same IP address without
    problem. Any pointers on what to do or what further information I might
    need to provide (and where to find it as I'm a wireless ignoramus) would be
    much appreciated.

    have you tried powering down and restarting the access point?

    We have to do this nearly every time with the router and I just unplug the
    dc adapter in the back which restarts it. I must admit it is getting to be
    a pain but can't understand why I have to keep doing this. I do switch off
    the power at night as the router does get quite hot. Any suggestions why it
    constantly needs rebooting? Using Belkin ASDL Modem with Built-in 802.11g
    wireless router, connected to 2 pcs one windows xp, the other xp pro. Once
    up and running okay but when I go to reset it the status indicates a private
    ip address, once rebooted goes to belkins settings 192.168 etc

  4. Yes, well, 'powr down' sound so sophisticated when all one can do is remove
    the power plug, but have done that, and have also removed the network cable
    and plugged it back in.

  5. Can you scan for available wireless networks? Is yours listed as
    available? Are there any others broadcasting on the same (or similar)
    channel number? Is there any security on the network?

  6. No, couldn't do any of these things. A call to Netgear support confirmed
    that the access point was defect. They sent a replacement (for a £20
    charge, otherwise it would have been at least five working days) and I
    plugged it in and it worked. Out of the box.

  7. Glad to hear that it's all working now - although £20 seems bit mean!
    Could you not have replaced the unit through the retailer?

    I managed and set up my WG602.
    I have troubleshooted my Wireless AP WG602 for a week with no connection to the box.
    Then I downloaded a IP detective, called IP scanner, program name IPSCAN.
    After 5 minutes of scanning it gave me the IP-address, my WG602 had address
    I entered the IP address and got the welcome screen, logged me in as admin with password password, and had full access to the set-ups of my WG602.
    Could not be easier.
