If no login is required, you can specify the MAC Address setting. 5. Click Apply to save your settings. 6. Click Test to test your Internet connection. If the NETGEAR website does not appear within one minute, see Chapter 8, Troubleshooting. When your Internet connection is working, you do not need to launch the ISPs login program on your computer to access the Internet. When you start an Internet application, your wireless router automatically logs you in. The fields that are displayed depend on whether or not your Internet connection requires a login. ISP does not require login ISP does require login
By default, the Push Button (recommended) radio button is selected. 3. Either press the WPS button on the side of the wireless router, or click the onscreen button. The wireless router tries to communicate with the client for 2 minutes. 4. Go to the client wireless computer, and run a WPS configuration utility. Follow the utilitys instructions to click a WPS button. 5. Go back to the wireless router screen to check for a message.
The wireless router WPS screen displays a message confirming that the client was added to the wireless network. The wireless router generates an SSID, and implements WPA/WPA2 wireless security. The wireless router will keep these wireless settings unless you change them, or you clear the Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box in the WPS Settings screen.
6. Note the new SSID and WPA/WPA2 password for the wireless network. You can view these settings in the Wireless Settings screen. See Manually Configuring Your Wireless Settings on page 2-4. To access the Internet from any computer connected to your wireless router, launch a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. You should see the wireless routers Internet LED blink, indicating communication to the ISP. Note: If no WPS-capable client devices are located during the 2-minute time frame, the SSID will not be changed, and no security will be implemented on the wireless router.
Using PIN Entry to Add a WPS Client
Any wireless computer or wireless adapter that will connect to the wireless router wirelessly is a client. The client must support a WPS PIN, and must have a WPS configuration utility, such as the NETGEAR Smart Wizard or Atheros Jumpstart. The first time you add a WPS client, make sure that the Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box on the WPS Settings screen is cleared. This is the default setting for the wireless router, and allows it to generate the SSID and WPA/WPA2 security settings when it implements WPS. After WPS is implemented, the wireless router automatically selects this check box so that your SSID and wireless security settings remain the same if other WPS-enabled devices are added later.
To use a PIN to add a WPS client: 1. Log in to the wireless router at its default LAN address of http://www.routerlogin.net with its default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up. 2. On the wireless router main menu, select Add a WPS Client (computers that will connect wirelessly to the wireless router are clients), and then click Next. The Add WPS Client screen displays:
3. Select the PIN Number radio button. 4. Go to the client wireless computer. Run a WPS configuration utility. Follow the utilitys instructions to generate a PIN. Take note of the client PIN. 5. From the wireless router Add WPS Client screen, enter the client PIN number, and then click Next. The wireless router tries to communicate with the client for 4 minutes. The wireless router WPS screen displays a message confirming that the client was added to the wireless network. The wireless router generates an SSID, and implements WPA/ WPA2 wireless security.
6. Note the new SSID and WPA/WPA2 password for the wireless network. You can view these settings in the Wireless Settings screen. See Manually Configuring Your Wireless Settings on page 2-4 To access the Internet from any computer connected to your wireless router, launch a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. You should see the wireless routers Internet LED blink, indicating communication to the ISP. Note: If no WPS-capable client devices are located during the 4-minute time frame, the SSID will not be changed and no security will be implemented on the wireless router.

Configuring Advanced WPS Settings
From the Advanced menu, select Advanced Wireless Settings to display the following screen:
The WPS Settings area displays the wireless router PIN, and allow you to Disable Routers PIN and the Keep Existing Wireless Settings for either wireless network (2.4GHz or 5GHz). By default, both Keep Existing Wireless Settings check boxes are unchecked. This allows the wireless router to automatically generate the SSID and WPA/WPA2 security settings when it implements WPS. After WPS is implemented or changes in wireless settings are applied, the wireless router automatically selects this check box so that your SSID and wireless security settings remain the same if you add WPS-enabled devices or if you manually add non WPScapable devices later. Note: If you clear either Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box, all wireless settings and connections will be lost for that wireless network.
Connecting Additional Wireless Client Devices After WPS Setup
You can add more WPS clients to your wireless network, or you can add a combination of WPSenabled clients and clients without WPS.
Adding More WPS Clients
Note: Your wireless settings remain the same when you add another WPS-enabled client, as long as the Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box is selected in the Advanced Wireless screen (listed under the Advanced heading in the wireless router main menu). If you clear this check box, when you add the client, a new SSID and passphrase will be generated, and all existing connected wireless clients will be disassociated and disconnected from the wireless router. To add a wireless client device that is WPS-enabled: 1. Follow the procedures in Using a WPS Button to Add a WPS Client on page 2-14 or Using PIN Entry to Add a WPS Client on page 2-15. 2. To view a list of all devices connected to your wireless router (including wireless and Ethernet-connected), see Viewing a List of Attached Devices on page 4-10.
Adding Both WPS and Non-WPS Clients
For non-WPS clients, you cannot use the WPS setup procedures to add them to the wireless network. You must record, and then manually enter your security settings (see Manually Configuring Your Wireless Settings on page 2-4). To connect a combination of non-WPS enabled and WPS-Enabled clients to the wireless router: 1. Restore the wireless router to its factory default settings (press both the Wireless and WPS buttons on the side of the wireless router for 5 seconds). When the factory settings are restored, all existing wireless clients are disassociated and disconnected from the wireless router. 2. Configure the network names (SSIDs), select the WPA/PSK + WPA2/PSK radio button on the Wireless Settings screen (see Manually Configuring Your Wireless Settings on page 2-4). and click Apply. On the WPA/PSK + WPA2/PSK screen, select a passphrase and click Apply. Record this information to add additional clients.

Chapter 6 Fine-Tuning Your Network
This chapter describes features to help you manage your RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router WNDR3700. This chapter includes the following sections: Assessing Your Speed Requirements on page 6-2 Optimizing Your Network Bandwidth on page 6-3 Optimizing Wireless Performance on page 6-5 Changing the MTU Size on page 6-6 Quality of Service (QoS) on page 6-7 Common connection types and their speed and security considerations are: Broadband Internet. Your Internet connection speed is determined by your modem type, such as ADSL or cable modem, as well as the connection speed of the sites to which you connect, and general Internet traffic. ADSL and cable modem connections are asymmetrical, meaning they have a lower data rate to the Internet (upstream) than from the Internet (downstream). Keep in mind that when you connect to another site that also has an asymmetrical connection, the data rate between your sites is limited by each sides upstream data rate. A typical residential ADSL or cable modem connection provides a downstream throughput of about 1 to 3 megabits per second (Mbps). Newer technologies such as ADSL2+ and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) will increase the connection speed to tens of Mbps. Wireless. Your RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router WNDR3700 provides a wireless data throughput of up to 300 Mbps using technology called multiple input, multiple output (MIMO), in which multiple antennas transmit multiple streams of data. The use of multiple antennas also provides excellent range and coverage. With the introduction of the newer WPA and WPA2 encryption and authentication protocols, wireless security is extremely strong. To get the best performance, use RangeMax adapters, such as the WNDA3100, for your computers. Although the RangeMax router is compatible with older 802.11b and 802.11g adapters, the use of these older wireless technologies in your network can result in lower throughput overall (typically less than 10 Mbps for 802.11b and less than 40 Mbps for 802.11g). In addition, many older wireless products do not support the latest security protocols, WPA and WPA2.
Fine-Tuning Your Network v1.3, October 2009 6-1
Powerline. For connecting rooms or floors that are blocked by obstructions or are distant vertically, consider networking over your buildings AC wiring. NETGEARs Powerline HD family of products delivers up to 200 Mbps to any outlet, while the older-generation XE family of products delivers 14 Mbps or 85 Mbps. Data transmissions are encrypted for security, and you can configure an individual network password to prevent neighbors from connecting. The Powerline HD family of products can coexist on the same network with older-generation XE family products or HomePlug 1.0 products, but they are not interoperable with these older products.
Wired Ethernet. As gigabit-speed Ethernet ports (10/100/1000 Mbps) become common on newer computers, wired Ethernet remains a good choice for speed, economy, and security. Gigabit Ethernet can extend up to 100 meters with twisted-pair wiring of CAT-5e or better. A wired connection is not susceptible to interference, and eavesdropping would require a physical connection to your network. Note: Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, can lower actual data throughput rate.
Assessing Your Speed Requirements
Because your Internet connection is likely to operate at a much lower speed than your local network, faster local networking technologies might not improve your Internet experience. However, many emerging home applications require high data rates. For example: Streaming HD video requires 10 to 30 Mbps per stream. Because latency and packet loss can disrupt your video, plan to provide at least twice the capacity you need. Streaming MP3 audio requires less than 1 Mbps per stream and does not strain most modern networks. Like video, however, streaming audio is also sensitive to latency and packet loss, so a congested network or a noisy link can cause problems.
Fine-Tuning Your Network v1.3, October 2009
Backing up computers over the network has become popular due to the availability of inexpensive mass storage. Table 6-1 shows the time to transfer 1 gigabyte (GB) of data using various networking technologies.
Table 6-1. Theoretical Transfer Time for 1 Gigabyte
Network Connection Gigabit wired Ethernet RangeMax NEXT Wireless-N Powerline HD 100 Mbps wired Ethernet 802.11n wireless 802.11g wireless 802.11b wireless 10 Mbps wired Ethernet Cable modem (3 Mbps) Analog modem (56 kbps) Theoretical Raw Transfer Time 8 seconds 26 seconds 40 seconds 80 seconds 45 seconds 150 seconds 700 seconds 800 seconds 2700 seconds 144,000 seconds (40 hours)
Optimizing Your Network Bandwidth
As your network grows, it might consist of several segments of different networking technologies, each providing different throughput. In planning your network, you should first consider which devices will have the heaviest traffic flow between them. Examples are: A media center in one room streaming high-definition video from a server in another room A storage device that is used for backing up your computers
Next, consider the throughput of your network devices. Where possible, make the heaviest-traffic connections using higher-speed technologies, with no lower-speed bottlenecks in the path.
Figure 6-1 shows a sample network using multiple networking technologies. In this network, the two PCs with Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet adapters have a gigabit connection through the GS605 switch to the storage server. This connection should allow for extremely fast backups or quick access to large files on the server. The PC connected through a pair of Powerline HD adapters is limited to the 200 Mbps speed of the Powerline HD connection. Although any of the links in this example would be sufficient for high-traffic applications such as streaming HD video, the use of older devices such as 10 Mbps Ethernet or 802.11b wireless would create a significant bottleneck.
The Router Status screen shows the Internet port IP address: 1. Log in to the router. 2. Under the Maintenance section in the left navigator, click Router Status. 3. Record the IP address that is listed for the Internet Port. This is the IP address you can use to connect to the router remotely.
Accessing the Routers USB Drive Remotely Using FTP
You can connect to the routers USB drive using a Web browser: 1. Connect to the router by typing ftp:// and the Internet port IP address in the address field of Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. For example, ftp://10.1.65.4 If you are using dynamic DNS, you can type the DNS name, rather than the IP address. 2. Type the account name and password that has access rights to the USB drive. The user name (account name) for All no password is guest. 3. The directories of the USB drive that your account has access to will be displayed, for example, share/partition1/directory1. You can now read and copy files from the USB directory.
Connecting to the USB Drive with Microsoft Network Settings
You can access the USB drive from local computers on your home or office network using Microsoft network settings. You must be running Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, or older versions of Windows with Microsoft networking enabled. You can use normal Explorer operations, such as drag and drop, file open, or cut/paste files from:
USB Storage v1.3, October 2009 7-12
Microsoft Windows Start Menu, Run option Windows Explorer Network Neighborhood or My Network Place.
Enabling File and Printer Sharing
Each computers network properties must be set to enable network communication with the USB drive. File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks must be enabled, as described below.
Note: In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, File and Printer Sharing is enabled by default.
Configuring Windows 98SE and Windows ME The easiest way to get to your network properties is to go to your desktop, right-click Network Neighborhood and then click Properties. File and printer sharing for Microsoft Windows should be listed. If not, click Add and follow the installation prompts. Note: If you have any questions on File and Printer Sharing, please contact Microsoft for assistance. Configuring Windows 2000 and Windows XP Right-click on the network connection for your local area network. File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Windows should be listed. If not, click Install and follow the installation prompts. 4. On the Media Server (Settings) screen, check the Enable Media Server check box. (This check box is selected by default.) 5. Click Apply. 6. To set the router to scan for media files, select one of the following: Automatic (when new files are added) This option is selected by default. When selected, this option scans for media files whenever new files are added to the ReadyShare USB Hard Drive. Scheduled Scan in ___ Minutes This option lets you schedule a scan periodically, or you can click the Scan Now button to scan for new media immediately.
Cannot Access the Router Main Menu
If you are unable to access the routers main menu from a computer on your local network, check the following: If you are connecting from a wireless computer, try connecting from a wired computer. Check the Ethernet connection between the wired computer and the router. Make sure that the cable connections are secure, and that you are using the correct cable. Make sure that your computers IP address is on the same subnet as the router. For instructions, click the link to the online document Preparing Your Network in Appendix B to configure your computer. Note: If your computers IP address is shown as 169.254.x.x: Windows and Mac OS generate and assign an IP address if the computer cannot reach a DHCP server. These autogenerated addresses are in subnet 169.254.x.x. If your IP address is in this range, check the connection from the computer to the router, and reboot your computer.
If the router does not save configuration changes that you have made, check the following:
Cannot Access the Internet
If you can access your router but you are unable to access the Internet, first determine whether the router can obtain an IP address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Unless your ISP provides a fixed IP address, your router must request an IP address from the ISP. You can determine whether the request was successful using the Router Status screen. To check the WAN IP address: 1. Start your browser, and select an external site such as http://www.netgear.com. 2. Access the main menu of the routers configuration at http://www.routerlogin.net. 3. Under Maintenance, select Router Status. 4. Check that an IP address is shown for the Internet port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your router has not obtained an IP address from your ISP. If your router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP, you might need to force your cable or DSL modem to recognize your new router by restarting your network, as described in Table 8-1 on page 8-1. If your router is still unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem might be one of the following: Your ISP might require a login program. Ask your ISP whether they require PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of login. If your ISP requires a login, the login name and password might be set incorrectly.
Wrong network configuration
Testing the Path from Your Computer to a Remote Device
After verifying that the LAN path works correctly, test the path from your computer to a remote device. 1. From the Windows toolbar, click the Start button, and then select Run. 2. In the Windows Run window, type: ping -n 10 <IP address> where <IP address> is the IP address of a remote device such as your ISPs DNS server. If the path is functioning correctly, replies like those shown in the previous section are displayed. If you do not receive replies: Check that your computer has the IP address of your router listed as the default gateway. If the IP configuration of your computer is assigned by DHCP, this information is not visible in your computers Network Control Panel. Verify that the IP address of the router is listed as the default gateway as described in the online document you can access from Preparing Your Network in Appendix B. Check to see that the network address of your computer (the portion of the IP address specified by the subnet mask) is different from the network address of the remote device. Check that your cable or DSL modem is connected and functioning. If your ISP assigned a host name to your computer, enter that host name as the account name in the Basic Settings screen. Your ISP could be rejecting the Ethernet MAC addresses of all but one of your computers. Many broadband ISPs restrict access by allowing traffic only from the MAC address of your broadband modem, but some ISPs additionally restrict access to the MAC address of a single computer connected to that modem. If this is the case, you must configure your router to clone or spoof the MAC address from the authorized computer.
Problems with Date and Time
Under Content Filtering in the main menu, select E-mail to display a screen that shows the current date and time of day. The WNDR3700 router uses the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to obtain the current time from one of several network time servers on the Internet. Each entry in the log is stamped with the date and time of day. Problems with the date and time function can include the following:
Date shown is January 1, 2000. Cause: The router has not yet successfully reached a Network Time Server. Check that your Internet access is configured correctly. If you have just completed configuring the router, wait at least 5 minutes, and check the date and time again. Time is off by one hour. Cause: The router does not adjust for daylight savings time. In the E-mail screen, select the Adjust for Daylight Savings Time check box.
. Note: Be sure to configure both Wireless Network sections (for 2.4GHz b/g/n and 5GHz a/n) on the Wireless Settings screen. 2. Make sure the Enable SSID Broadcast check box is selected.
3. For the wireless network name (SSID), use the default name, or choose a suitable descriptive name. In the Name (SSID) field, you can enter a value of up to 32 alphanumeric characters. The default SSID is NETGEAR. Note: The SSID is case-sensitive; NETGEAR is not the same as nETgear. Also, the SSID of any wireless access adapters must match the SSID you configure in the RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router WNDR3700. If they do not match, you will not get a wireless connection to the WNDR3700 router. 4. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate. 5. Set the channel. The default channel is Auto. This field determines which operating frequency is used. It should not be necessary to change the wireless channel unless you notice interference problems with another nearby wireless router or access point. Select a channel that is not being used by any other wireless networks within several hundred feet of your router. For more information about the wireless channel frequencies, click the link to the online document Wireless Networking Basics in Appendix B. 6. Set the mode to Up to 130 Mbps at 2.4GHz and Up to 300 Mbps at 5GHz. 7. For Security Options, select None. 8. Click Apply to save your changes. Note: If you are configuring the router from a wireless computer and you change the routers SSID, channel, or security settings, you will lose your wireless connection when you click Apply. You must then change the wireless settings of your computer to match the routers new settings.
9. Select Advanced Wireless Settings under Advanced in the main menu of the WNDR3700 router.
10. Make sure the Enable Wireless Router Radio check box is selected. 11. Click Setup Access List. 12. Make sure that the Turn Access Control On check box is not selected. 13. Configure and test your wireless computer for wireless connectivity. Program the wireless adapter of your computer to have the same SSID and channel that you configured in the router, and disable encryption. Check that your computer has a wireless link and can obtain an IP address by DHCP from the router. Once your computer has basic wireless connectivity to the router, you can configure the advanced wireless security functions of the computer and router (for more information about security, see Chapter 2, Safeguarding Your Network).
