Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Cannot restore factory settings

I'm trying to set up a wireless network using a router that I had previously used for a different network years ago. I orginally tried connecting the cable modem (Cisco 2100) to the router and then to our MacBook with ethernet cables to both. Only two lights on the modem (Power and Cable) light up, and only the power light on the router lights up. No connection. When I try to restore factory settings on the router, nothing happens. I've held the reset button over a minute and no lights flash or anything. Any insight or tips? Router: Netgear WGR614 v7 Modem: Cisco 2100 Cable Modem

SOURCE: Cannot connect to internet.

Since better than half of my customers use a Cable modem and I sell Netgear routers, this ought to be a piece of cake :-)

It sounds like one of your computers is working fine, and the one you reformatted doesn't. Is it Vista and did you get the drivers for the network card? Whovever reinstalled the OS should have done the drivers, but if they didin't, you'll probably have to go to the computer maker's web site and get them for your particular machine.

It's fairly easy to tell, because if you plug a cable into the network card and it either doesn't light up or is not detected, you don't have drivers or you have other issues. If you somehow do, then you can click on the Control Panel and Network and see the LAN card. It will either be enabled, disabled, or not there.

Once you get it to where you can see the network, now you can go about configuring the connection. I'm betting on missing drivers, but if you have any more questions, feel free to comment back.

That means it hasnt picked up an IP from the modem.

Unplug the power to the modem and the router. Leave them off for a full minute. Pluge the modem in first , give it another full minute then power up the router. If you still have problems try another cable.

If you still have issues, Power off the modem and the PC and repeat the above process.Verify the PC is getting connection. If you cant connect then call the cable/DSL company.

If you can connect download the latest firmware from Netgear and flash the router.

Hello kidd08,
Step 1: Determining the IP Address of a Computer: Follow these steps to check the IP address of a computer for which the Ports are to be opened:

For Windows 2000/XP users:

a. Please click on Start and select Run.
b. Type in cmd and click on OK.
c. In the command prompt, please type ipconfig then press Enter or Return key.
d. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.2 for the computer and 192.168.1.1 for the router).
e. Please note down the IP Address.

Step 2: Logging on to the Router Page:

a. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Click on Enter or Return key.
c. For security reasons, the router has its own username and password. When prompted, enter admin for the Username and password for the Password, both in lower case letters.

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

d. You will then see the setup page once you have successfully logged in.
e. A menu will be seen on the left hand side of the router configuration page. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced. For older firmware version, click on Port Triggering tab or just click Port Forwarding on Please select the service type.
f. Click Add and another window will pop up.
g. Type Xbox for Name. Set the radio button to Enable.
h. On Outgoing Port Range, set the Start Port and End Port to 3074.
i. On Incoming Port Range, you also have to indicate 3074 for Start Port and End Port. Save the settings by clicking on Apply.
j. Please repeat steps 4 to 7 and indicate 88 for Start Port and End Port. Then change the Name to Xbox2.

Other things to check:

A. Lower down the MTU.

a. Access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2 above).
b. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
c. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300.
d. Click on the Apply button.

B. Enable UPnP.

a. Go to UPnP tab of the router.
b. Enable UPnP and then save the settings by clicking on Apply. Some websites and devices require UPnP or Universal Plug and Play. Just make sure that it is enabled on the router.

C. Upgrade the firmware.

Note: Follow the steps below if the above troubleshooting still do not allow Xbox to connect using the router.

a. Please verify the router version and model either underneath or at its side panel.
b. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and please select the model of the router.
c. Click the appropriate version of the router.
d. Select the link of the latest firmware. Click the button Right-click and Save to Download. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with Wired or Ethernet connection only.

e. Before upgrading, please write down all current settings since you need to enter them manually.
f. Using the computer hardwired on the router, please launch Internet Explorer and access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2).
g. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
h. Click on Browse and locate the upgraded file in your Desktop. Then click on Upload.
i. Please wait for the router to reboot.
j. After a successful firmware upgrade, you need to reset the router.
k. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
l. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

How do I restore my router to the factory setting? I have no Wi-Fi service.


Restoring the Default Configuration and Password
  • Use the restore factory settings button on the rear panel of the router. Use this method for cases when the administration password or IP address is not known.
  • This is how to restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1.
  • To use the restore settings button:
    1. Locate the restore factory settings button on the rear panel of the router.

    2. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink.

    3. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green.

    4. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.

      Then you can go through the setup procedures to setup your wireless

    To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
    When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

    How to reset netgear wgr614 to factory default


    You can reset your Netgear router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings. For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

    Step 1: Check that your Netgear router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

    Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

    Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

    Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

    Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

    How to reset rangemax wireless-n 150 router?


    Reset means that you will restore it to factory defaults which will delete all of the configuration settings of the router and will leave you not connecting to internet and wireless as well, but if you really want to reset it, just simply press the black button at the bottom of the N-150 router, press and hold it for at least 15 seconds. Once the lights on the router starts blinking, that means that it is successfully restored to factory defaults.

    Wifi dosent work


    Since you have already restored the router to factory default settings, I suggest that you reconfigure the wireless settings of the router by changing the SSID (wireless network name) and the channel. You can either use channels 1, 9, or 11 coz these channels have less interference. If you still can't connect to the wireless network, you may try repositioning the antenna/s of the router, if there's any. If all else fails, install the latest firmware of your router. Hope that helps!
