Customer Question

I have attempted to setup my Netgear WN604 for 3 days now. I only got it to partially to work once. I can no longer access the setup web page using the 192.168.0.1 address. I have tried to set up now on 3 different CPS with no luck. The WLAN blue light rarely will lite and never stays on the whole time. I can reboot the unit by unplugging as recommended and it will stay lit for maybe a minute or 2. But during that time I cannot get my HP laptop to find it's network. During that process the blue light goes off and stays off till I can reboot and most of the time that doesn't relight the blue LED indicating that the wireless signal is getting out.

Hi,

welcome to just answers.

 

 

Try to access your routers web page by going to 192.168.0.100.

I'm not a novice at this! This is NOT a router. Can't you tell by the Model #? The webpage IP is 192.168.0.1. The problem is that it cannot find this address when the Access unit is plugged into the PC directly. I'm thinking a defective unit but nned verification.

I agree that was my first thought defective device, I would return it and get a new one.

 

 

Thanks

 

Merry Christmas

If you look on Net gears web site for the WN604 it has the users manual and on page 12 of the manual it states " The access point is set, by default, with the IP address of 192.168.0.100 with DHCP disabled."

 

Thats why I was advising you to use that address .

 

you can view the manual here--> http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/WN604/WN604_UM_14Oct11.pdf

 

Hope that helps..and dont forget to click accept..

 

Have a Merry Christmas
