The Router appears to have failed

My NetGear Router WGR614 is not working. The Internet and Wireless lamps are not coming on and all the 1234 lamps are on even when unconnected to a cable. I tried pressing the reset button but it doesn't help.

There are several possible causes for that problem. The first is a bad power cable, insufficient power received by the router, firmware corruption on the router, or the router may have gone bad.

ø For bad power cable, you can try to use other power cable just make sure that the voltage of the one you are replacing and the replacement are exactly the same.
ø To insufficient power, you can try other power outlets
ø For firmware corruption, you can try the following steps:

1. Connect a computer to the numbered port of your router. For now, the connection would only be computer and router.
2. Check for a valid IP address. If you do not know how to, you can follow the steps on this link. The IP address should be in the range of 192.168.0.X (X as a number between 2 – 254). If not, hold the reset button of the router for 30 seconds and try again. If the same happens, set a static IP address on the computer within the router’s range (192.168.0.X (X as a number between 2 – 254)).
3. If you are able to get a valid IP address, try to check if you can access the router’s setup page. Launch an Internet browser and type in http://www.routerlogin.net on the address bar. If it asks for a User name and Password, enter admin for the router user name and password for the router password or the password you have changed it to. If you were able to get in, you can use that page to upgrade the router’s firmware. Then once it has been successful, reset the router and reconfigure.

However, when all these steps have already been tried and the same happens. That would only mean that the router is already defective and you need to have it replaced.

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

ROUTER PASSWORD


The universal pword is, believe it or not, 1234
Here is the website with exact instructions from NetGear itself - these instructions are for the v4 version of your router - make sure this is the correct version of the WGR614, or else this exact page will not work for you - if you have v7 instead, go to the v7 page, etc.
