Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Wireless problems Hello my main computer works fine hardwired but my other computer and my xbox 360 will not pick up our network for some reason. It was working fine a couple of days ago but while we were putting up our christmas tree we accidentally unplugged the NetGear WGR614 v9 router. I've done most of the troubleshooting steps and still can't find a way to reconnect my other computer and xbox to our network. I'm particularly not computer savvy with these kind of issues so please help in anyway. Thanks

Hi there,

Here in Denmark, lots of people are well tired of this router.
It often loose internet connection, but a hard-reset fix the problem most times.
Maybe you just have to unplug the power for a few seconds and then plug it back in, - wait for a minute or two until all the lights are on.
If this doesn’t work, please respond, and well find another solution.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to http://kb.netgear.com to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

Xbox 360 connection troubles


I can tell you that you are not alone. I cannot tell you the exact reason why but I am hardwired in myself and experience the exact symptoms you have scribed. I believe that it is simple a Xbox Live service problem. I work for a cable internet provider and have tried everything that can possibly be done to tweak and tune a connection and it still occurs.

I am not sure what the use as the communication protocol but if it is "SIP" based that would explain alot about why we are constantly being booted from party's.

I would definatally recommend hardwiring your xbox to a router though. You could be having wireless channel overlap from a neighbor that could me dropping the connection. Another possibility is if you have any file sharing utilities "bit torrent" ect. running, that will cause inconsistancies. You may also have someone else mooching on your wifi.

These are just suggestions, Hope this helps..

Cannot connct xbox 360 wireless adaptor


Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

Xbox 360 to Windows XP?? Problems


When you hooked up the XBOX 360 it most likely, by default, made another network name but used teh same wireless hook up. Meaning when it is unplugged you need to:

1. Right click on the icon in the bottom right corner of the screen that has your wireless connections (Usually a picture of one or two computers)

2. Click on CONNECT TO A NETWORK

3. Find your network and connect.

That should work.
