Help - Can I re-set WEP code on my Netgear WiFi?

Dave Trevena

Having finally received our furniture shipment (it's been very minimilist here for six weeks!) I was excited to unpack our old Netgear router (DSL Modem Internet Gateway DG814) and wireless box (54 Mbps Wireless Access Point WG602 v2) to replace the single network cable modem provided by QTel (the telco in Qatar).

After plugging in, I refreshed the wireless networks and was surprised to find it come up as 'Trevena' secure network. When I clicked, it then requested a WEP code...

After going through my old IT clip file I did finally came across a WEP code written down. However, I'm pretty certain that this was the code used for the Orange internet wireless service we adopted after retiring the Netgear. However, since it was the only WEP code I could find, I entered it.

Long pause while computer searched for the network (it's sitting under the desk!) then said that I was connected, but with limited or no connectivity - in spite of showing a good signal (all the green bars). When I refreshed Firefox (my browser) it was obvious that I wasn't connected to the internet.

My question is this: Based on my assumption is that I'm entering an incorrect WEP code, is it possible to re-set this?

Netgear forums at http://forum1.netgear.com/index.php?s=4dc3b220627fd85741800546f526a76f Looks like there's lots of 'Netgear fanatics' here, ready and willing to put you on the right track (assuming the answer hasn't been found from the above contributions) Regards, Graham

Hi WEP is soley for the wireless and independent from any provider. If you have connect the PC and router directly by using a cat5 cable. You than need to know the standard address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.16.1 are the most common - just type this into the browser. This should bring up the password protected router menue (often admin password if not altered) If you have limited connectivity you should be able to get to this wireless by using the 192... addresses You may have to adjust the ADSL part to match your new provider - They should have supplied settings (userid password line settings) Once ADSL is up you can set a new WEP code if desired but it should simply work as before Martin For documentation try this link http://www.netgear.co.uk/wireless_network.php Travel Essentials - Airport Parking to Visa Life and business in Galicia Spain

The most common way to reset a netgear is while it's turned on, press the reset button but hold it in. The lights will blink when you first hit it, and will start flashing again when you've hit the trigger. Wait for it to start up again. When it does come back, it will be completely unencrypted so it's worth logging into the router (usually http://192.168.1.1 but can be others), if you can find an online manual, this will have the default address and passwords.

Not easy unless you know what it is. Usually printed on the box or on the router itself. Reseting to factory settings will set it back to the original wep . J o h n A r m s t r o n g - M i l l a r P h o t o g r a p h e r
