Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Net work connections on laptop, it asks for "key" to activate conncection Where do I get this key?

My laptop which is in the next room show a low signal. I'm convinced it isn't recognizing "Net Gear" as a connection. When I try to select net Gear, it asks for a "Network Key". Where do I get this key?

    Thanks for the feedback. I got the network key from the network connection on my desktop. However, this key is 26 characters. When I imput it into the area it gets rejected, saying it is only 6 - 8 characters long. Since I installed this router last Sept. 07, I don't remember if I was asked to create a "key" in the original installation. I'm at a loss to how to find this so call key.

    If you have any other ideas, I really would appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Rudy

    If it's asking for 26 Hex digits, you must have WEP 128 set. Depending on your other settings, there may only be one key, and that appears in one of the 4 key boxes below the Generate Passphrase box. That would be for Automatic. Mine's set for WEP 64 bit Automatic and I have a 10 character hex key in key 1.

Cannot find wep key on net gear dg834g v4


to find the wep key of a netgear router, you first need to ensure that you are connected to the netgear router. after ensuring that you are connected, open a browser, internet explorer or firefox, type 192.168.1.1 or www.routerlogin.net it would now ask you for a username and password. username is " admin " password is the word " password " itself. you would see the netgear page next. click on " wireless settings " on the leftside of the screen. there you would see your WEP key on security options

May be your modem is not configured correctly by bsnl.
call up your telephone exchange ask for the correct details of the connection and try again.
If it still doesnt work ask for a replacement of the modem.

My sisters nintendo wii requires a securety key code be inserted for it to connect wirelessly to the dsl. where is the securety key on the dsl she has? i never saw a modem.


A security key is not told to all. It is set by you when the dsl router is installed. And is known to you alone. Unless you tell everyone.
How to find it now? start you computer that is connected to net through this dsl router. Fire up the browser and in the address window type 192.168.1.1. You will be taken into the dsl router. Administrator ID is admin and so is the password admin. In the next screen click on security->wireless->WEP Key. When the WEP Key opens it would either be in clear or as ********. If clear then you have no problems but if in ***** then check a box saying "Show WEP key in clear". That is your WEP Key that the Wii is asking for.
If it does not work then call the communication people of your building. They would know.

I have hooked it up as the instructions state but it will not find the internet, I am useing a hp laptop and am trying to go wireless, it is the vista system


No its not your windows system, try to check again your wireless router if the software firmware are installed properly in your PC. Also to configure it and connect your internet provider to the Router, which is automatically create its own Protocol Address or Obtain Address, even on Wireless connection. This is basic on Wireless Router to connect on the internet. Good luck!

Problems connecting remote net connection.


It sounds as if your signal strength is too low for the laptop to make a solid connection with the router. The further away you get from the router, the lower the signal gets. Any problems connecting to other access points? Places with free wi-fi like some fast food restaurants, books stores, etc? You may need to get a new router with a stronger signal strength.

Moving internet to another room


As long as you have an active DSL connection in the new room, yes you should be fine. All settings are saved in the router's flash memory and won't be lost by disconnecting the power. Make careful note of where everything is plugged in (a digital photo is great!) and in the worst case, you can move it all back until you figure out what is wrong.

Trying to connect router and laptop


ok does the router show green lights in power, internet and wireless. i'm assuming your using windows here, first of all make sure you have wireless turn on or activated in the laptop, then at the botton left of the screen in the taskbar you see one computer like icon, right click on that and view available networks.......find your network form the list and then click on connect.
if you have the router set up right and pluged into your modem it should work just fine if not let me know and i'll tell you how to set it up.
hope this helps.

Wireless conncection


depending on who your ISP is, you need an ethernet cable coming from the modem into the WAN/Internet port on back of router. Once that is in you can try to connect wirelessly using the settings your router is setup for :

SSID/network name
encryption type
encryption key/passkey/passphrase
-- this part is dependent on above setting
wireless channel
