When you purchase a Netgear wireless router you can remove it from the box connect it to the Internet plug it in and start using it right away. However there are settings you should change on the router to establish security for your wireless network and for the router itself. You can access the router's settings by connecting a computer to the router and using an Internet browser to change them.

Hi, First, some information: I have a Inteno modem where the wifi is turned off, and i have used my Asus RT-N66U for the wireless connection (in AP mode). I have configured it to use the best channel number, but wouldnt be a problem anyway i think as i only have 2 close nabours. Its been working fine for a long time. But the last year it has started to loose internet connection. It started to happend once in a while, not very often. Last months it has happend more. The firmware was updated last week, but i did not factory reset after that. Today i woke up to a message on my phone saying IP configuration fault (Android phone). This has never occured before. My girlfriend also had lost connection. So i checked on the router and tried to connect to it with a cable but no such luck. I got a long message saying "Settings has been updated.....", i've seen this message around here when searching. But was not able to connect, not even after factory reset. The weird thing is though, the light for port 1, 2 and 3 is lit (lighted up) even though there is no connection on any port.. I have tried connecting with the cable on every port but no connection. When connecting to port 1 the light doesnt light up. I just started it up again, and now only port 2 and 3 lights up with no connections. Number 3 is flashing just like it would when a computer is connected, number 2 stay constant. 2.4 and 5ghz lights flashes occationaly to. When connecting direct to my modem with cable i have full internet access. -What have caused this? -Is it possible to solve? -How can i get to connect to it? Seems impossible at the time. Thanks for any help! I would prefere not to buy a new, as i really like this! And it isnt very cheap either..
