Unable to install netgear wireless N150 router

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

I have an internet connection, which serves static IP. I have some more gadgets which use WiFi to connect to the internet.

So, I just bought a Netgear Wireless Router N150 but I am unable to install it & connect the router to my computer.

I need help from you guys, please help me out of this problem.

Unable to install netgear wireless N150 router


There are 2 methods that can be followed, to install your router:

  • The 1st and the easy way is, using the Smart Wizard Setup.

The Smart Wizard Installation Assistant setup is available on your Resource CD. The wizard guides you through the setup process. It automates many of the steps and verifies if the steps have been successfully completed. This Smart Wizard requires a PC running Microsoft Windows.

  • The 2nd method is the Manual Setup.  

For example, if you are connected to a Mac and you're using a Linux operating system, or are technically knowledgeable, select this option. I have attached the manual of this router, to see the figures that describe connections.  For best results, install and set up your router in this order.  Failure to follow these guidelines, can result in significant performance degradation or an inability to wirelessly connect to the Internet. 

NETGEAR does not recommend or support adding a NETGEAR router behind another router, or replacing a gateway with a NETGEAR router.

  • If you have a Macintosh or Linux system, you must use the manual installation method (see “Manually Installing Your Router” on page 13). Getting to Know Your Wireless Router 7:
  1. Install and connect your wireless router to your network (see “Connecting Your Wireless Router” on page 14).
  2. Set up your wireless router for Internet access (see “Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access” on page 18).
  3. Configure your wireless network and select wireless security settings to protect your wireless network (see “Configuring Your Wireless Network” on page 21).
