The switch the installer was talking about is a setting in the router itself. The wireless in the router is probably turned off. If it had been enabled but no security configured, anyone within range could use your internet for whatever. (you become a wi-fi hotspot) The wireless is a user setting, accessible through the router's admin page, through your computer's browser. Consult the manual that came with the router. If you don't have the manual, you can download a copy at the Netgear website. Once into the router's admin functions, you can enable the wireless, and configure the settings, and the WEP key. You will need to create the WEP key in the router, and enter that key in the wireless settings in each laptop. the manual explains it all very well and understandable for the non-geek. Each function should offer a help page if there's something you don't understand.


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!

Port conflict with other service with netgear


It's telling you that there is already some type of service configured with the port you are trying to use. Confirm that the port number you are trying to forward is not listed elsewhere in the already-configured rules. or in the defaults of the router. If so, you will need to adjust the port you are using to something that does not conflict, or disable the existing rule.

Just bought a new PC with Windows 7 and the netgear wireless-g wgr614 router says it's incompatable


are you trying to run CD on new computer ?
You can do it manually without CD.
First let me know, are you trying to install the router OR you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network.
If you are trying to add a new computer to the existing network then you don't need to install the router on the computer, you just need to connect to the network.
