Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Local computer I have my wgr614 hooked up to a local computer (desktop) that has crashed. I would like to set it up on my laptop. Can I set it up without having the laptop wired to the router...In other words is this a true wireless router? the set up says it has to be set up with a local computer any help would be appreciated.

Hi. Yes, this is a wireless router. You can use the router with your laptop, wired or wirelessly, provided you have the right adapters (and unless your laptop is very old, you will have:))

The 'setup' referred to in your posting refers to the intial setup of the router with your ISP, which must be done with a wired connection. Any changes in the configuration of the router -eg, changing the wireless security settings - must also be done with a wired connection. Otherwise, you're OK to go wireless!

If you need help with wireless connection or wireless security, please come back to Fixya.

Hard drive on an eMachine computer desktop has crashed. Computer won't boot. Is there anyway to get files off the crashed hard drive?


take the hard drive to a local computer guru... recovery will depend on what caused the crash, and what has happened since then. Basically, he or she will need to try to boot your hard drive with another tower, or pull all the info directly from the disks themselves. If you had to ask this question, you're gonna need help to fix it.... Sorry.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Resetting the router is not really the solution. I would suggest you upgrade the firmware of the router. WGR614 has nine versions. So please make sure to choose the correct firmware for your router. The firmware can be found here.. http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614.asp
Hope this helps

Local only on wireless, dont know how to change it.


I had the same problem, but then I found out that I was connected to the hamatchi server at the same time what somehow prevented me from using the internet. So just watch that you are connected to only one network, might help.

Desktop PC crashing all at least once every session


This problem I had multiple times. The way I solved this was by reinstalling the O.S on my computer. Yes, you will have to lose everything, but if you want to use that computer again that's what should be done. However, there is a way to retain all your files. if you go out and buy a Hard Drive Case, and extract your internal Hard Drive from your Computer, You can hook up that hard Drive to your case and upload all your files onto another computer. A Case for your hard drive costs roughly 15-120$, depending on how fancy of a case you want.
