2. For the wireless network name (SSID), use the default name or choose a suitable descriptive
name. In the SSID box, you can enter a value of up to 32 alphanumeric characters. The default
SSID is NETGEAR.
3. Set the Region. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate.
4. 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 on the wireless channel
frequencies, see “Wireless Communications” in Appendix B.
5. Set the Mode to g and b.
6. For Security Options, select None.
7. Click Apply to save your changes.
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 NEXT Wireless Router WNR834B. If they do not match, you
will not get a wireless connection to the WNR834B.
Note: If you are configuring the router from a wireless computer and you change the
router’s 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 router’s new settings.
