You need a Macintosh computer running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (Netgear products are not supported for versions of MacOS before 8.6.) You can use the RP614 with an eMac, iBook, iMac, PowerBook, PowerMac, or PowerPC as long as they are running one of these versions of MacOS. You also need a few Ethernet cables to make the connections between the router to your modem for internet connection and from the router to your computers or peripherals. Topic 2. How do I prevent my Network configuration from being lost when I restart my computer? When making configuration changes for MacOS it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9. x) or Network Location (MacOS 10. x) settings instead of just changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). If you just make changes to your settings, they may be lost when you restart your computer unless you have saved them in a Configuration or Network Location. To create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x: 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. From the pull-down File menu select the Configurations option. 3. Choose New Configuration. 4. Type in a name for your new configuration (Netgear Router). 5. Make your changes to the AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) settings. 6. When you close AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) choose Save Changes. Whenever you make Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open Configurations from the File menu or by pressing Command-K. Saving your changes in Configurations means that they will not be lost when you reboot your computer. To create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x: 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking on the Apple icon in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. From the System Preferences window click Network under Internet & Network. The Network settings window displays. 4. Click the Lock icon (if necessary) in the lower left-hand corner of the window to unlock the Network window so you can make changes. (You may be asked to type in your User Name and Password.) 5. Click the pull-down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select the New Location option. 7. Type in a name for your new Location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left-hand corner to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes? Window displays. 10. Click Apply to apply the configuration changes for the newly-created Location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Macintosh to the RP614 Router Gateway? MacOS 8.6, 9.x, and 10.x 1. Set up your system for installation. 2. First make sure your ISP connection is working. Try testing your computer with the ISP directly to make sure you can successfully make a connection to the internet. 3. Connect your DSL or cable modem to the Netgear Router. 4. Log on as Administrator (if required for your system to make configuration changes). 5. Quit all other applications. It's best when configuring MacOS 8.6 and 9.x to use the Configurations settings for AppleTalk and TCP/IP because they should then retain their settings when you reboot. (Use Network Locations to save your settings changes in Mac OS 10.x.) If you just change the settings but don't use a Configuration or Network Location to save your settings changes, you may lose those changes when you restart your computer.

Netgear rp614v4 as a switch


This router acts like a switch automatically, you can converse between ports on the same LAN connections without any setup.

They all need to have the same network setup, the same gateway address and DHCP setup.

If you are not accessing the internet that's all you need.

See manual http://downloads.netgear.com/pub/netgear/files/RP614v4_RM_12Jun08.pdf

Twice after using Google's gmail video chat with our RP614, our internet access stopped. I had to recycle the power on the RP614 each time. Is this a known issue?


I can't think of a connection between the two events, esp if it happened only twice. I own a similar Netgear router (wi-fi tho and not DSL), and find it very reliable.

Netgear Rp614 router is not supported on my windows vista 64 bit os. How can I get it to work?


Hi, follow the steps below to reset and reconfigure your RP614:

RESET:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which says restore to factory default settings). Press the button with the help of a paper clip and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the router for 5 seconds then power the router back.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I have a used router its a rp614 i dont have anything else like a cd to install it to my computer or whatever i might need


Guess what? You don't need a CD to "install" software, it's already on the router.

Since I don't know what version you have (v1-v4) you'll have to find it on the bottom of the router and then link to the proper one.
http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1293

It's pretty easy, just follow the tab "how to set up a router if I don't know the password". Of course, before you go to all that trouble, try plugging a wired connection into it, and go to 192.168.1.1 or whatever the gateway shows and use "admin" and "password" or "1234" for your username and password.

If none of these work, THEN one of the holes in the back is the reset button (should be a round hole between the last ethernet port and the power supply jack). You have to hold it in for 10 seconds until it blinks and then release it. You may have to power cycle the router as noted in the reset instructions.

Coonected but can't access to the internet


First, make sure you have a Default Gateway defined. The Default Gateway is the address of the router that allows access to the outside (internet). Go to Start > Run > and type 'cmd'. This will bring up a black box. Type:

ipconfig /all > ip.txt
notepad ip.txt

Then copy the results that come up with notepad and let me see them.
