If this is your router and you've forgotten the username or password we suggest that the router be reset and then setup with a new username and password.
Default username and password
Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.
Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.
If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com
Sometimes when attempting to visit a secure website on your Windows computer, you will receive a message about a security certificate error.
You will have the option of whether to continue to the site.
Secure websites, such as an online bank or retail store, use security certificates so your browser knows that any financial or personal information you enter on the website will go the correct place securely.
Every error message does not necessarily indicate a security problem on the website.

Check your computer's date and time.
If they are incorrect, you will receive security certificate errors.
Click on the time in your taskbar, and set the correct time in the pop-up window.
Refresh the website where you received the error message.
If you receive a security certificate error message again, the problem lies with the website's security certificate.
Click the icon that looks like a padlock next to your browser's address bar.

Read the information in the window.
This will detail who owns the website, the site's verification status and any known information about the website's trustworthiness.
Compare this to what you know about the site you were attempting to visit.

Click "View Certificates, then "Install Certificates."
Click "Yes" at the security warning to install the certificate for the website.

need to change netgear router rp614 from dsl to cable


Hello

First connect one of the ethernet ports (LAN) to your computer.

In windows to this:

XP: Start -> Run -> write CMD and press ok-> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).
Vista: click windowsmenu icon-> write CMD in search field and press enter -> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).

Open a webbrowser and clear det adress field, enter the adress (with the dots and no www.) you wrote down from default gateway and press enter.
If you get promted for a username and password the default is: username: admin password: password (you can find it on the side of the netgaer box under deafult accsess.
If you cant get in try to do a "hard reset" (push the reset button for 30 sec with a pen).

You are now in the web user interface for you netgear.

On your lefthand side, you should have a blue menu, click on the first option on the top and run the setup wizard, dont change anything (dont choose that your connection needs a password to connect) just use the default settings. Remember to press save on the botom.

You should now be ready to use your netgear router.

If this guide didnt fix your problem, i need more details to help you.
Check with your new service provider if they require a username and password to connect (PPPoE).
