An inability to log in to your router using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 might be caused by any of these situations:

·No physical connection
·Incorrect computer or firewall IP address
·Firewall or pop-up blocker
·Router needs resetting

To troubleshoot the problem, try each of the following tips. After you try each tip, test your connection to see if it fixed the problem. To test your connection, launch a web browser and and enter http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. If your router’s administration screens display, the problem is solved. If they do not display, try the next troubleshooting tip.

Check the Physical Connection

Most NETGEAR routers have five Ethernet ports. One is slightly separated from the others. The slightly separate Ethernet port connects to the Internet through your cable or DSL connection. (Some routers allow a USB connection here.) Use any of the other Ethernet ports to connect the router to your computer.

Check that the cables inserted into your router’s Ethernet port are firmly connected at both ends. When you insert the cable, you hear a small click noise.

Disable Firewall and Popup Blockers

Your router’s web interface uses JavaScript. Some firewalls and popup blockers stop JavaScript from running. Disable these temporarily while you access the router administration screen. If you are running Windows XP, the firewall might be enabled without you knowing it. For more information about disabling three common firewalls, see the “Disabling Firewalls” article.

Reset Your Router

Resetting your router to factory defaults can sometimes correct log in problems. For more information, see the “Restoring a NETGEAR Router to Factory Default Settings” article.

If you are unable to log in to the N600 NETGEAR WNDR3700 wireless gigabit router, check the following:

• If you are using an Ethernet-connected computer, check the Ethernet connection between the computer and the router as described in the previous section.

• Make sure that you are using the correct login information. The factory default login name is admin, and the password is password. Make sure that Caps Lock is off when you enter this information.

• Typically, your computer’s address should be in the range of 255.255.255.0.2 to 255.255.255.0.254. Refer to your computer’s documentation for help with finding your computer’s IP address.

If your computer’s IP address is 169.254.x.x, verify that you have a good connection from the computer to the router, and then restart your computer.

Make sure that your browser has Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX enabled. If you are using Internet Explorer, click Refresh to be sure that the Java applet is loaded. Try closing the browser and starting it again.

The routing software (also called firmware) of the NETGEAR WNDR3700 router is stored in flash memory,and can be upgraded as NETGEAR releases new software. Your router can download and install the new software, or you can download upgrade files from the NETGEAR website and manually send the upgrade file to the router using your browser.

Tip: To ensure that you are always using the latest router firmware, enable the Firmware Upgrade Assistant feature so that the router will automatically detect a new version of the firmware on the Internet and alert you to its availability.

The Checking for Firmware Updates screen appears at login unless you clear the Check for Updated Firmware Upon Log-in check box.

netgear-WNDR3700-Firmware-1

A screen is also provided for upgrading the router. From the main menu, under Maintenance, select Router Upgrade to display the Router Upgrade screen.

netgear-WNDR3700-Firmware-2

From this screen, you can check for new software versions by clicking the Check button. If a new version is found, you can download and install it in one step. To enable the Smart Wizard to automatically check for a new software version upon login, select the Check for New Version Upon Log-in check box.

Alternatively, you can manually install an upgrade file stored on your computer.

Tip: Before upgrading the router software, use the router Settings Backup screen to save your configuration settings. A router upgrade might cause the router settings to revert to the factory defaults. If this happens, after completing the upgrade, you can restore your settings from the backup.

Upgrading Automatically to New Router Software

If you have selected Check for New Version Upon Log-in, your router alerts you to the new software when you log in. Otherwise, you can click the Check button in the Router Upgrade screen to search for new software.

If the router discovers a newer version of software, the message on the left displays when you log in. If no new firmware is available, the message on the right displays.

netgear-WNDR3700-Firmware-3

netgear-WNDR3700-Firmware-4

To automatically upgrade to the new software, click Yes to allow the router to download and install the new software file from NETGEAR.

When the upload is complete, your router automatically restarts. The upgrade process typically takes about three minutes. Read the new software release notes to determine whether you must reconfigure the router after upgrading.

Upgrading Manually to New Router Software

To manually select, download, and install new software to your router:

1. Under Maintenance on the main menu, select Router Status. Note the version number of your router firmware.
2. Go to the WNDR3700 support page on the NETGEAR website at http://www.netgear.com/support.
3. Check the most recent firmware version offered against the firmware version shown in the Router Status screen.
4. If the version on the NETGEAR website is more recent, download the file to your computer.
5. Under Maintenance on the main menu, select Router Upgrade.
6. Click Browse, and locate the firmware image that you downloaded to your PC (the file ends in.img or .chk).
7. Click Upload to send the firmware to the router.

Warning: When uploading software to the WNDR3700 router, do not interrupt the Web browser by closing the window, clicking a link, or loading a new page. If the browser is interrupted, it could corrupt the software.

When the upload is complete, your router automatically restarts. The upgrade process typically takes about three minutes. Read the new software release notes to determine whether you must reconfigure the router after upgrading.

To block access to Internet Sites:

The NETGEAR WNDR3700 router allows you to restrict access based on Web addresses and Web address keywords. Up to 255 entries are supported in the Keyword list.

Keyword application examples:

• If the keyword XXX is specified, the URL www.zzzyyqq.com/xxx.html is blocked.

• If the keyword .com is specified, only websites with other domain suffixes (such as .edu, .org, or .gov) can be viewed.
To block access to Internet sites:

1. Select Block Sites under Content Filtering in the main menu. The Block Sites screen displays.

2. Enable keyword blocking by selecting either Per Schedule or Always.To block by schedule, be sure to specify a time period in the Schedule screen. Block all access to Internet browsing during a scheduled period by entering a dot (.) as the keyword, and then set a schedule in the Schedule screen.

3. Add a keyword or domain by entering it in the keyword field and clicking Add Keyword. The keyword or domain name then appears the Block sites containing these keywords or domain names list.Delete a keyword or domain name by selecting it from the list and clicking Delete Keyword.

4. You can specify one trusted user, which is a computer that is exempt from blocking and logging. Specify a trusted user by entering that computer’s IP address in the Trusted IP Address fields.Since the trusted user is identified by IP address, you should configure that computer with a fixed IP address.

5. Click Apply to save all your settings in the Block Sites screen.

Blocking Access to Internet Services:

The NETGEAR wireless router WNDR3700 allows you to block the use of certain Internet services by computers on your network. This is called service blocking or port filtering. Services are functions performed by server computers at the request of client computers. For example, Web servers serve Web pages, time servers serve time and date information, and game hosts serve data about other players’ moves. When a computer on your network sends a request for service to a server computer on the
Internet, the requested service is identified by a service or port number. This number appears as the destination port number in the transmitted IP packets. For example, a packet that is sent with destination port number 80 is an HTTP (Web server) request.

To block access to Internet services:

1. Select Block Services under Content Filtering in the main menu. The Block Services screen displays.

Netgear-WNDR3700-Services-Internet

2. Enable service blocking by selecting either Per Schedule or Always, and then click Apply.To block by schedule, be sure to specify a time period in the Schedule screen.

3. Specify a service for blocking by clicking Add. The Block Services Setup screen displays.

Netgear-WNDR3700-Services-Internet2

4. From the Service Type list, select the application or service to be allowed or blocked. The list already displays several common services, but you are not limited to these choices. To add any additional services or applications that do not already appear, select User Defined.

5. Select the radio button for the IP address configuration you want to block, and then enter the IP addresses in the appropriate fields.You can block the specified service for a single computer, a range of computers (having consecutive IP addresses), or all computers on your network.

6. Click Add to enable your Block Services Setup selections.
