Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

2 Answers

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit OS

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.

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.

I am using a Gateway MD2614u PC Notebook with 3Gig memory, 64 bit Windows Vista OS SP 2. Can my system utilize 16 Gig Ram? Thank you.


If you're using at least the 64 bit premium of vista, then it should be able to use 16 gigs. http://www.crucial.com/support/recognize_memory.aspx

BTW it has 2 ram dimms, so you will have to calculate with these 2.

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit operating system


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

Vista...is it a 32 bit version or 64 bit.


Hi.
I dont' work for bestbuy, so i can't tell what the hardware inside this pc is, only looking inside the pc or the hardware manuals a technician can work.
However, to know what kind of windows is installed, you don't need to be an expert, Windows XP 32 bits only shows the logo( WINDOWS XP ), unlike Windows XP 64 bits, this appears as:
( WINDOWS XP X64 ) when windows is starting.
Also you can go to START - CONTROL PANEL - double click on SYSTEM, there you will see some of your system specs.

About the Graphics card, the most qualified to tell you that is Nvidea Manufacturer itself:
See for yourself.

Hope this help you.
Good luck.

Brand new gateway m-6846 vista 64bit


The maximum amount of memory that your system can use is actually limited in two ways — not only is there a maximum amount of memory that your computer motherboard can accept, there is also a maximum amount of memory that your operating system (OS) can accept.

For instance, when you install 4GB of memory in a 32-bit Windows system (the most common version; 64-bit systems are typically used only by high-end users), your system will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB.
Relax, there isn't a problem with the memory. Windows allows for 4GB of memory to be addressed, but this isn't 100 percent the same as having 4GB of physical memory.

What happens is that some of the addressable memory (regardless of how much you have physically installed) is reserved for use by page files or by some of the devices that you are using, such as a graphics card, PCI card, integrated network connections, etc., so it's unavailable for use as normal main memory.

The amount of memory needed for these devices is calculated by your system at startup; if you haven't maxed out the memory in your system, it's invisible to you, and all your physical memory (the RAM that's installed) is available for use. However if you've maxed out the DRAM in your system, this amount will be deducted from your physical memory, so you can't use 100% of your DRAM.

The maximum memory limitation varies by operating system; for instance, the 4GB memory limitation doesn't exist in 64-bit versions of Windows.

Memory maximums for current Microsoft® Windows OSs include:

  • Windows XP Home: 4GB
  • Windows XP Professional: 4GB
  • Windows XP 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows XP 64-bit: 128GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit: 8GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit: 16GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate: 4GB
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit: 128GB+
  • Windows Vista 32-bit: 4GB
  • Windows Vista 64-bit: 128GB+
