Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

All LAN Ports are ON

Hi, Recently, I have changed AC/DC adapter for NetGear WGR614 router, as I lost my original NetGear AC/DC adapter. The adapter's electric configuration are same. The router is not at all working with this new adapter. The problem is that once the router is powered on, all LAN ports are ON, eventhough there is no LAN wires connected at respective ports. The steps I have followed are as below: [1] Powered on the router. This makes all LEDs to be ON, except Wireless and Test LEDs. [2] Connected Broadband LAN wire into Router's Internet port. [3] Connect one end of LAN wire to one of 4 ethernet ports and other end to Laptop. But, Windows Netconnection in Laptop indicates that "No LAN connection is detected". I don't guess this problem is due to new AC/DC adapter. Please help me on this issue. Thanks in advance. Arun

Re: All LAN Ports are ON

Arunk, When you say the electrical characteristics of the new A/C adaptor are the same as the old one did you check to ensure the amperage and the polarity of the power plug is the same as well?

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

Hi there, where could I get a setup cd for netgear WGR614 router?

You don't really need the CD.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Connect from your web-browser to the web-server "inside" the router.
If it asks for ID or for password, try a "blank", or try 'admin'.
Once connected, you can run a "Wizard" to configure your wireless network, i.e., pick an SSID, and pick a password or pass-phrase, and enable encryption.

I have a netgear wireless router wgr614-6vguks and when i switch my pc and the router on it takes at least 30 mins to 45mins for the router to power up. Any ideas why?

This could be because of a bad power supply or leaky capacitors in the power supply that takes this long to charge themselves up before full supplied power is applied. I suggest changing the AC power pack first, if after doing this and it still does the same symptom then the routers power DC to DC converter IC is faluty in the router, Cheaper to just buy a new router at this point.

How do you hook up your netgear wireless router to your clear wire modem?

Hi Leon,

have alook at Clearwire's webpage (here), where they describe different setups for your router.
I personally would always prefer to connect the modem to the router via a cable. The cable you will need is an Ethernet (CAT5) cable and the connectors at the end look like this (compared to a phone cable:


You will connect the output of your modem with the WAN port of your router. This port is usually separated form the 4 other LAN ports, which connect to your computers, printers, etc.
(You didn't specify which router model you have, so I can't give you more details, but it should be very obvious, when you look at the back of your router.)

For the initial setup of your router, you should use a second Ethernet cable connected to one of the LAN ports of the router and to the Ethernet port of your computer.

If you need help with the wireless setup of your router, you have to look either in your manual of give me the details of your router (like the model and version, i.e. Netgear WGR614) and I'm happy to assist you.

Problem with netgear wgr614 v6 daisy chain

I am assuming the Verison was setup and working before this started, if not let me know.

Do you know the address and subnet mask for the lan side of the Verison Actiontec router? assumed like address subnet mask This means all addresses 192.168.0.? belong to the verison router's subnet.

Assuming the Netgear router is being daisy chained using a lan port from the Verison Router to the WAN port of the Netgear, the WAN side of the Netgear router needs to be either dynamically addressed or statically addressed in the 192.168.0.? uniquely outside the DHCP range for the Verison router.

The LAN side of the Netgear Router must not be addressed the same as the LAN side of the Verison router in this configuration.

There is another potential configuration where lan ports of both routers are connected. however in that configuration there are additional considerations. Please let ne know which connection you are attempting between the two routers.

There is some additional informatin you can gather

Assuning you have windows XP for the operating system on your computers hook a computer wired if possible to the LAN side of each router and issue the following commands

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt in the new window that opens type the following command and press enter


write down th IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway for each adapter

Then issue the following command once for each default gateway not = where {...} is replaced in its entirety with the default gateway.

pring {default gateway address no {}}

the expected responses will be either 4 timeouts or 4 lines with elapsed times. Timeout is failure -- elapsed times means it was connected.

For each router I need to know the default gateway and the subnet mask for the successful pair. Plese reply ina comment to this problem and additional steps will be forthcomming.
