Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router

3 Answers

Can't access settings page

I have a MR814 v2 router which has worked well now for a few years. I have run into a problem since Telstra have changed their access method to cable. I don't know if this co-incidence or not. When I type in 192.168.0.1 I get back the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and thus cannot access the settings page. Yet if I ping that address it sends and returns the relevant packages. I am still able to access other internet pages through the router albeit what appears to be at a slower speed. Help please.

    Thanks for your help. I went through Benimur's power down process and I can now access the settings page. I have software V5.03 from Nov 18 2003 which seems to be the latest. Is there some way of testing the efficiency of the router?

    Having the same problem, can't access the router @192.168.0.1



    Have tried the reset and it won't reset the router either...



    PC directly to router won't talk at all....Tried straight thru and crossover with no luck...



    It's like the DHCP portion is not functioning as you can't release or renew and get a 192..........It just passes through the charter info.

Hi, you may want to try: 1. reset the router to default settings - depress small button at the back of the router. all the leds in front wil blink and/or die. continue pressing on until one of the leds lights up again (might take a couple of seconds. if you can't still log to the web interface, you can try: 2. power off then disconnect all connection to the router. 3. connect your PC directly using a lan cable to one of the 4 lan connectors at the back and to the Lan Card/NIC of your PC; 4. Set your PCLAN to 192.168.0.2;255.255.255.0; 5. Power on the router and try to login to 192.168.0.1 with username: admin & password: password. Normally on power on, the router front leds blinks to indicate power on reset. Leds which remained steadily lit indicates a hardware failure (except for the power led). I have flashed this model with mr814v2_v5_03.img which solved internet slowdown and a couple of other problems. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how it turns up with your router.

The web page of your router cannot be changed by the isp, but what may have changed is your network cards ip address, as thats the only wat the router cannot be reached if you are on a different address route, so check that your card is 192.168.0.X, the last being different to the router. the only other way this may have happened is if you have used an installation disc and it has changed all address so that they are different to what the routers manufactured address is and therefore cannot be altered but is allowing a static ip address or mac addresses for internet connection. The outer may have simply froze out, and you may have to reset the router by way of a pin hole button at the rear of the unit or underneath or firstly try a restart by unplugging it.

Get the directions from NetGear, for free, and use their install wizard.
Here are the (generic) highlights of what needs to be set:

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

Can Not connect to NetGear MR814 v2 Router with Acer Extensa 4420


Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

  4. Your router networking is not broadcast so do it manually by supplying SSID and security keys on the setup menu.
If this thing are done correctly, better see your supplier.
