Light Status on Netgear WGR614

Bought this wireless two days ago first nite worked fantastic and then turned it off when i went to bed. The next morning i turned it on and its not finding any internet connection through my cable modem. The only lights that come on are the power button and all four LAN lights. It wont even work when i try to use it as a wired LAN. Please help. I know its not the modem or the computer as i tried my friends which worked fine. I have tried the master reset to no resolve.
I will be happy with any help at all. Thankyou

Access router. What does it say? did you set up the wireless network yourself? Is the cable modem working properly? Rebooted it? Is there a problem with the internet provider?

I have a problem with a wireless router wgr614. Some kind of fluid was leaking from him, and he stoped working. I don't know if some kondensator went wrong, but the fluid does not make any sence. please...

This is because the router has gone bad. turn off your router first and unplug all the cables connected to it.Then contact your Netgear and get your router replaced if you have the warranty period.
With Regards, Prema.

Netgear not working after power failure

Netgears are NOTORIOUS for this. If a hard reset didn't fix it, the one where you hold the red button down for like 30 seconds then it is gone. I have replaced SO MANY of these. The first thing that went on them was the wireless and they did have tons of complaints on this at one time as well.
Get a Linksys rounter, I have hardly EVER had any problems with them and they are now owned by Cisco, even better.

Drops the internet connection and has to be rebooted at least once a day.

Try to reduce the MTU of the router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492, for Cable connection size is 1400 or 1463. You can do it on the router's admin page

Yellow Ethernet Cable

Ethernet cables can come in all colours (very unhelpfully). The cable you need has RJ45 connectors at either end, which are clear.

It goes by many names: you are looking for Cat5e or Cat6, ‘straight’ or ‘patch’ cable, which is used to connect, say, a computer to a router. Do NOT use ‘crossover’ cable.

Netgear has some info here (a little out of date but OK:)

Hi supermosang .

Have you check the new firmaware update for your Netgear? ..pls do so first before proceeding to the next step provided below.

Next approach is to unistall and reinstall you 'reciever' to avoid any conflicts and isolate the issue. If that step is still a no go we might as well reset your netgear router to its factory settings and then lets start from there. It should work as your router has fanstastic features that supports 26bit encryption.

Good Luck.

Network Cable Unplugged

mairelina, if all was well 2 days ago then resetting the router should fix your problem. usually a small button on the back of the router.

chelliepooh, you need to check that the router's wireless function is on. connect using the ethernet and go to the config page (usually make sure wireless is on and security is set to wpa-psk.
