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.

Re: 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.

You don't actually need a driver to set it up. Just plug it into your network, then browse to its URL (likely 192.168.1.1, but could be 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.2.1). Then just follow the prompts to configure it. Hope that helps.
Check your firewall on both machines - make sure that the firewall has the other computer listed as a trusted machine. What OS are the computers running? Do you have sharing enabled (for the desired files in Windows OS)?
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (who runs a Win7 network and the firewall trust issue meant that the printer connected to one computer (Win7 64-bit) was unseen by the other computers (64-bit and 32-bit) until that was reset. The location of the setting will depend on the firewall software. In Norton Internet Security 2010, it's Network Settings, Smart Firewall, Advanced, Trust.)
Yes there is a problem with the 2wire's wireless with 64bit vista.
I had a problem with my MAC and my Windows VISTA 64 BIT Laptop not being able to keep a stable connection with the default wireless username and password. To get into the 2wire: Open a Internet window Address Bar 192.168.1.254 Home network "At the top of the page" then click on wireless settings "Also at the top of the page" Then you are in the wireless config to change the information. What i had to do is change the wireless authentication to WPA-PSK and change the wireless password (Use a 10 digit Number as the pass-code, a phone # would be a good suggestion) , what you also need to do is change the name of the network along with the channel of the wireless, it helps if you take it all the way up to 11. Then you should be smooth sailing all the way. :-)
Windows 7 (Beta) and Windows Vista 64 Bit. Step 1. Do not allow the autostartup to run the installation application. You must right click on the CD ROM and select the "OPEN" option. Locate the driver on the install CD. Since my DVD ROM drive is my "D:" drive I located the driver at D:\USB_VISTA32364\BACKUP_2WIRE_VISTA_USB_Installer.exe . Before you click on this you want to right click on this and select Properties. In the properties tab click on the middle tab marked "Compatibility". Make sure you select the checkmark box to: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and use the pull down menu to select Windows XP SP2. This is how I was able to get my 2wire utility to work on Windows 7 (beta) 64 Bit.
hi.IP address and gateway depends on your ISP and if you have Dynamic i address from your ISp then it wud be automatically assigned.hey check if the wep key on the laptop and the 2wire are the same and they share the same type on encryption(64/128 bit)
