Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit operating system

I am planning on buying a Gateway T-6836 laptop from BestBuy.com which has the 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium operating system. I wanted to know if my router, NetGear WGR614, will support 64-bit operating systems. I couldn't find anything on Microsoft's website because it said "Status Unknown" but maybe if there's someone out there who has this router and a 64-bit operating system, they could help. Thanks to everyone who helps me.

The router protocols (on air and ethernet connection) are independant of the operating system. Vista 64 bit will work with the router.

I DO NOT KNOW MY SECURITY PASSPHRASE


n most cases the default wireless settings are sufficient for normal home use.

Locating the WEP or Network key:

To change your Residential Gateway wireless settings:

  1. Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.

    If the Home page does not open, check to make sure that you have no software firewalls blocking network access.

  2. Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.

  3. Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.

  4. Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you want to change to a custom WEP key.

    64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (For example, 123456789A is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)

    128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

    64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example, GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption)

    128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

I changed from 64 bit to 128 bit back to 64 bit in 1 hr. It was an accident, and now my laptops will not recognize my router. My cable company has tried everything over the phone.We have changed the...


When you changed the WEP encryption from 64 bit to a stronger 128 bit encryption the encryption code gets changed and when you changes it back to 64 bit the new 64 bit encryption code will be different to the old 64 bit encryption code, that is why your laptops cannot connect to the router. The laptop wireless card needs to be configured with the new 64 bit encryption code before it can connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you configure the wireless router with WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is a much stronger encryption method than the old WEP encryption.

Need to update my browser how is it done please?


You can download update for Microsoft Internet Explorer from www.microsoft.com/ie. If you are wanting a different browser such as Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, etc. You will need to go to their respective download page and download the installation pertaining to your operating system and hardware type (64-bit or 32-bit). There is a lot more information that is needed as in what Operating System are you running? What version of the operating system? Is your operating system 32-bit or 64-bit? Please provide more details of exactly what you are attempting to accomplish.

The full set of user guide are here http://www.thomsonbroadbandpartner.com/dsl-modems-gateways/products/product-detail.php?id=161
browse to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your Thomson Gateway (by default: 192.168.1.254) and click Thomson Gateway on the menu on the left-hand side.
Another option is to reset your Thomson Gateway and reconfigure it all over again. have a look at chapter 7 of this manual http://www.thomsonbroadbandpartner.com/getfile.php?id=5349

Mac laptops can't access an open (no security set) Belkin Router


A "locked" wireless means the router is encrypting packets of information as it sends/receives. You would need to enter the 64-bit or 128-bit key which was created by the router when you configured the passphrase to use.

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit OS


Your router doesn't care about your OS, all it's dealing with is networking packets and protocols ant for that Vista 64bit is acting like anything else, there's no such thing on the brand new laptop market what won't work with a router via cable or wireless.
Long story short I can tell you that it will work and if there'll be a problem it wont'be 64-bit vista itself more likely the wireless password if you don't know it. Buy that laptop if you like how it looks like and what it can do for you.

http the router through its address (you'll find that in the manual). once you access the router, you'll be able to change all the settings.
