Someone gave my father-in-law an old Netgear wireless print server. It includes two USB ports (for printers) and four ethernet ports. The device can connect to an existing wireless network, so it’s essentially a wireless bridge device. He wanted to use it to extend Internet access to an out-building on his property.

I configured the device to work with his network. In the process, I had to find the default settings so I could connect to the device and configure it. Netgear no longer offers support for this device and I wasn’t able to download the manual from Netgear’s Website. I had to use third-party sources. I figured I’d go ahead and post the default settings needed to connect to this device.

  1. FYI — You can still get Firmware, Manuals and etc.

    • Thanks for the follow-up Jeff. When I worked on the device I couldn’t download the manuals from the site. It must have been a temporary problem so thanks for letting me know.

  2. that ip don’t work on my laptop or desktop tried it over and over but doesn’t work. anyone else know what the problem could be?

  3. Thi unit stopped working after I changed the WiFi setup to WPA2. It may support WPA without a FW upgrade, but now I cannot wake it up even through a clear WiFi, unencrypted.

    Is there a way to get to it through the Ethernet port?
