Do a hard reset (20sec hold reset button, unplug for 20 sec still pressing the reset button and another 20 sec to turn on the power while holding the reset button). That should reset to defaults.

On the router, you will see some sort of ventilation for the air to pass try smelling from there and if you smell anything the smells like burnt plastic or rubber then the device itself is burned from inside because of the power outage, however, this is extremely rare case scenario I doubt it will burn like that so easily, and do perform the same step on the power source adapter of the router because in many cases it is the power source that gets burn and not the device.
After that perform some troubleshooting steps check if the power chord connected to the router is properly connected also please check the power outlet with other electronic devices to see if the outlet is working.
I am not sure but I am assuming that it is the power adapter that got damage and not the router. Let me know if any issues.

The Office jet 4620E connects via wireless, but first you need to step up the network connection by connecting it up via a USB cable.

Then convert it to wireless working.

Read the manual here, start from Page 198

Most of the NETGEAR devices, except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches, have the following default username and password:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password. Click here to learn how to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

User Manual can be found here: http://documentation.netgear.com/wnr834b/enu/202-10171-01/pdfs/FullManual.pdf OR, In the rear of the device near the AC jack you will see a tiny reset button push and hold for 30 seconds or so. This will reset your device to default settings. You will need to reconfigure the SSID and Security settings.

It depends on the ISP:

If it's DSL (verizon, att, centurylink, etc)
then you will need dsl login and password credentials. (PPPoE or PPPoA)
some others dont require it (DHCP) so you need to call and ask themt o confirm these.

you might also want to ask them about the ADSL settings: Multiplexng Method, VPI and VCI numbers. This will be very helpful.

For CABLE connections (comcast, time warner, etc)
it should be automatic. but if not try to search for MacSpoofing.

Have you checked the sticker on the router? Sometimes they actually print the security key on a sticker usually on the back or on the underside of the router.

You can also get to the routers internal settings, which will allow you to see or reset the security key, by plugging your PC directly into the router and typing in:192.168.0.1 in your browsers address bar. This should take you into the logon screen for your router.

Try this.

Unplug the Router.
Unplug the modem.
Wait about 15-20 secs.
Reconnect the modem.
wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display.
Reconnect the Router.
Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up.
Try connecting again.

If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.

My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.

If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)

I hope this helps,
Simon.

any metal objects or any appliances that transmit radio frequencies affects your connectivity thru wireless. make sure the path is clear especially where the router is located.

May be a button on back of router to power on/off. If you have any other electronics you can compare voltages on power cords and make sure they match and try a new power cord. Generally though with routers if it has been fried by a surge of some kind there generally isn't a way to fix it, at least not in any way that will be cheaper than just replacing the router itself.

NetGear RangeMax... | Answered on Aug 21, 2011


you would have to log into the router itself- Usually netgears are on 192.168.0.1- once you're in the router, go to the wireless setup to get the WEP or WPA keys you need to setup your hardware
