Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Wireless connection fails: won't assign address

I can successfully connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable. I can get the configuration pages for the router and I can get the internet too. However, when I try to switch to a wireless connection I hit trouble. The PC detects the NETGEAR wireless network but fails to connect to it. When I click "connect", it reports "Limited or no connectivity. ... This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer." I am then unable to access either the internet or the router configuration page (192.168.0.1). While trying to fix this I have encryption turned off and have also turned off the option to restrict access to specified computers. (Obviously I will put these options back, for security, when the network is fixed.) I am using the router in conjunction with a Wanadoo "Livebox" modem. As I say, I have been able to make a connection using ethernet cable, but not wirelessly. Thanks in advance for any help.

I can not configure it to my pc


The easiest way to configure a linksys router is to avoid the CD that comes with it and just directly connect your computer to the router via an ethernet cable. eliteandres.jpg
This is the back of your router.
Step one: press the little red button to the right of the yellow ports to reset all of the settings to defaut
Step two: connect one side of your ethernet cable to your computer and connect the other side of the ethernet cable to any of the four yellow ports in the back of the router
Step three: open up your internet web browser on your computer (IE: firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome)
Step four: in the address bar of the internet browser type in "192.168.1.1" without quotations. This is the IP address of the router.
Step five: after you press enter to go to the IP address it will prompt you for a username and password. Leave the user name field blank and put in "admin" without quotations for the password and press okay.
Congratulations, you are now at the setup page for the router. Change any of the settings you would like and save the settings and your router will not be set up and ready to use!

How do the cables connect? Which cable goes where?


Step 1:
Connect the broadband modem to the router's WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we'll connect the computer to port number 3.

3678-003.png

NOTE: It is advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4) ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.

Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.

1) Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
2) Install the router and power it up.
3) Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
4) Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (make sure to put the cable in the WAN port of the router).
5) Connect Port 1 on the router to the NIC on the computer using ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
6) Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the address bar of your browser (try just using IE for now).
7) A window will open asking for a username and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router).
8) Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc…
9) If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection.
10) At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on (you can use either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration). Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray..

I need to find my private networks security key by going online the router web based setup page. I can not use the wireless connection until i find the security key.


You need to connect to the router by an Ethernet cable since you cannot connect over wireless without a key. Turn off or disable your radio, then connect an Ethernet cable between the computer and one of the LAN ports on the router. If your computer's Ethernet adapter is configured to get an automatic IP address, you should be able to access the router at this point.

Hi twilbanks,

from what you are saying, the problem lies very likely in the router configuration.
Since you have a cable (not DSL-) modem, the router should get it's IP address straight from the modem. There is a know issue with the Toshiba PCX 1100 cable modem. If this is your modem, see the information here.
I would suggest to reset the router to factory default, since I don't know what you have configured already. You will loose all your configurations (wireless, security, portforwarding etc.), but it's always better to start from a clean plate.

  1. Turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all Ethernet cables (Modem -> Router, Router -> Computer)
  3. Power on the router. Reset it by holding the reset button in the back of the router for about 20 seconds.
  4. Connect the modem to the router with an Ethernet cable. (Router WAN port)
  5. Connect the router and the computer with an Ethernet cable. (Router LAN port)
  6. Power on the computer.
  7. Open a command prompt, then type "cmd", click "OK" and in the following window type "ipconfig /all" and hit ENTER. If your computer is set to obtain it's IP address and DNS automatically, your output should look similar to this:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : [Name of your Ethernet adapter]
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.XX
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1

If it looks different (IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 169.X.X.X), let me know. In that case we have to configure the computer correctly. Go back to the command prompt window and type "ping 192.168.2.1" and let me know if this command finished successfully.

Also - sometimes your Internet Service Provider has special requests in setting up your router, especially comcast or Cox. When you attempt to open a web page you may recieve the following message:
  • The page cannot be displayed
  • The page you are looking for is currently unavailable
  • The website may be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings
This is how to resolve this problem:
First make sure that you have a valid connection to the router and that you have a valid IP address.
(note: For a wired connection you should have a link light on the numbered port of the router to which your computer is connected. You should have an IP address in the range 192.168.2.x. To check your IP address, click on Start, Run and type "cmd". Click OK. Now type in "ipconfig" and hit enter. Your IP address will be listed.)
  1. Unplug the power cable from the modem for 3 to 5 minutes
  2. Open a Web Browser
  3. In the address bar type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click on Connection Type in the left hand column under Internet WAN heading
  5. Enter your password if any and click Submit (Default = Leave blank)
  6. Follow the on screen instructions.
  7. Once complete, click on the Home link at the upper right of the screen.
  8. It should now show Connected as the Internet Status at the top right hand corner of the web page.
If this did not solve your problem or you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
