I reciently got laptop with a wireless router(NETGEAR rangemax wireless router model wpn824). I connect the router to my modem(dsl) and then to my home desktop pc via hardwird. I start to go through the setup which uses internet explorer and it detects my connection but when it go's to test it, it cannot connect to the internet. The internet works fine without the router. Im running windows xp home edition. Im not network savvy really so if anyone can help out that would be great.

How to fix wireless connection issues

1. Make sure all wireless devices are using the same mode, infrastructure in the most cases.
2. Make sure all wireless devices have the same SSID.
3. Make sure all wireless devices have the same WEP encryption settings if you have enabled them.
4. Make sure you have added the wireless MAC into MAC Address Control if you enable it.
5. Use ipconfig and ping to test the connection. All wireless devices must be in the same IP range.

Hi
Verizon you do need to have your modem set up as bridged if you have the 2200 modem What you need to do is just have the modem hooked up to your desktop computer without the router hooked up you have to do this manual to change it to brigded The best thing to do is call verizon and they will walk you thought this step by step at no charge.
