Netgear WGT624 v3 initial setup

For those of you who happen to acquire a Netgear WGT624 v3 router and use Norton, don’t be surprised if you can’t access your router to configure it. The default settings on the Netgear router have a Trend Micro security feature enabled that will send special packets to the computers on the network. Some programs such as Norton will then block the router’s IP address making you unable to access the router to turn this off.

The solution that I used was to look for a live Linux CD, such as Knoppix and then just set it up there, or at least turn off Trend Micro.
