Ok i'm at the verge of smashing this bloody 'thing' to pieces very shortly. Here's the story... So I picked up a Netgear Rangemax WPN824 v2 Wireless Router today for a handsome price. The first thing I did was a factory reset (because I bought the device 'used', it does work though I can confirm). I then put the supplied CD in and followed the step by step wizard (to connect my Netopia modem to the Netgear router which would then magically set itself up so I can connect to the router wired or wirelessly). So the wizard goes through all the steps and everything is fine. Then when I eventually get the wizard to move to the actually router config in the browser it says it is testing for an internet connection and is unable to find one (odd considering that during the wizard it said it could find one). My modem assigns an IP address etc using DHCP from the ISP. The Netgear router picks all this info up etc etc. Even the Network Connections icons say everything is fine, heck I can even set up and connect to the modem wirelessly! But with all of the above said, I can't surf the internet, or do anything else for that matter. I will finish with a vulgar tirade (just to release some anger!!) !#$!%&@**&@^#^%!%$$#!!!!!!&@^@%@^^^!!!!%%$$$###@!!!! Phew!
