Wgr614 wireless router will not connect

My router stopped connecting to my laptop. It worked fine for a couple months, then a day ago stopped connecting. I unplugged the router, I removed the wireless network from the laptop and refreshed/added it back on the laptop, inputed the network keys, but no success with either. Any thoughts? thank you!

    re: clarification request - I have a desktop that is connected to it via the modem.

    I accessed the router, adding the mac address of the laptop to the router info, and then it worked... I'm not a tech guy by any means, just monkey see monkey do.

    It works now, thanks again!

This makes me think that the wireless in either the router or the laptop has failed. Will the laptop connect ok if at another hot spot? if so, then you may have a problem with the router. If the laptop will not connect when somewhere else, then the wireless in the laptop has a problem. that could be a problem with the internal wireless card, or a driver file corrupted. Check the wireless card through the device manager to see if windows reports it working properly, and make corrections there as may be necessary. If windows reports all is ok, you may need a new card.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

TEW432-BRP Trendnet wireless broadband router wont connect


Sounds like you need to configure the PC's USB wireless adaptor. The settings must be the same as the router. If you use a WEP password on the other connections then you need to have the same password on the USB wireless adaptor. Good Luck.

Wireless problems


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.

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 192.168.1.1) make sure wireless is on and security is set to wpa-psk.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
