Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Netgear No Internet connected detected

I have been trying to install my netgear wireless router wrg614.
I reached the ACTIVATE THE NETWORK part.

My laptop would indicate on the system tray that i was connected. Earlier it told me that I have a PPoE connection.

I could not get the password to work
Now, it is worse because it could not even detect that I am connected to the internet.

i followed everything but I still could not make it to work. Please help me. I am about to throw this brand new NETGEAR into the trash can.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please 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 and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection that does not require a login, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection that requires a login, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

I have this router (NG WRG614) and I have 1 computer set up with it. However I don't know my passcode in order for me to add more electronic. Can you Help?


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Cannot conect my Router


1.Did you set an IP address to the new router? If no.
set it to 192.168.1.2 or in DHCP mode.

2. Install the new AP software(i.e uninstall the older version from your PC/laptop) which would be available in CD for the new router package.
This will solve the problem.

Cannot connect to my Netgear WRG614 v6 Router. My Dell laptop shows an excellent connection but it says limited or no conectivity? I have tried several suggestions and reseting several times...nothing...


If you are using LAN cable from your ISP. Try to connect it to your Computer LAN port directly or how you connect directly your internet connection from your computer without the router. Then on your system tray try to look the internet icon activity usually a two monitor icon. Right click on there. Then select status,then support, then details, from there see the DNS number you may get two DNS numbers set then put that manually to your wireless lan settings.

Problem connecting wireless to a Netgear MR314


Login to router and change the wireless channel on which the router is transmitting wireles signals.

Pretty old router that you have. Ugrade your router and stay tension free with the newer routers as they work fine and have low downtime.

Netgear No Internet connected detected


Are you sure you have a PPPoE Modem? Usually these are DSL connections from Phone and Satellite ISP's... But there are also other ISP's that use them, although a very large percentage of ISP's just use DHCP. Try to set the router up using DHCP instead of PPPoE and see if that works...
To check if you are on the internet:
Start-> Run -> cmd [enter]
in the black box:
ping google.com [enter]

another useful command is:
ipconfig
