Is it cable or DSL? Cable should be fine but DSL gets slower everytime a second or third connection is added.

I am having connection problems with this product, the NetGear Router WGR614. My computer that the router is connected to is in my family room and it works great in here, but when i am sitting in a chair...


HI, This is one of the problems associated with wireless connections in the home.
I have many clients in a similar sitauationa and where possible, I run an ethernet cable from the router to whereever the computer is to be used. Alternatively I use what's known as 'Powerline networking'. This is a system whereby the mains wireing in your house is used instead of ethernet.
There are several brands available and you can buy units that have a wireless transamitter on one mains plug so that you can be flexible with your wireless layout.
I have found this to be much more reliable than trying to use 'range-boosters'.

How to turn Netgear WNR834B into a repeater


I don't think the Netgear WNR834B is capable of acting as a repeater but there is another solution. I would decide where I want to put the Netgear WNR834B for best coverage and then do the following. Go buy the Powerline Ethernet Adapters of your choice and put one at the main connection and plug a ethernet cable into a open switch port. Second go to where the repeater is to be located and plug the 2nd Powerline Ethernet Adapters in and connect to the Netgear WNR834B LAN port. Be sure to turn off DHCP on the Netgear WNR834B and assign a IP address that is not used. I normally use the highest address in the last octet so that I can remember for management. xxx.xxx.xxx.254. I hope this helps you.

I ordered a wireless router so I can hook up my PS3. My computer is not compatible with wifi so I thought I'd just leave it hooked up to the modem. The instructions tell me to put the CD into my computer...


You have to use the computer to insert the CD

As your computer is not wireless compatible, you can have this connected to the router itself on the wired connections and use PS3 on wireless
Do NOT connect your computer to modem and also Netgear to modem.
Either one of them won't work. Instead connect modem to Netgear and computer to Netgear with an ethernet cable.
After this type of connection is made, try to setup the router with the CD inserted into computer.

This is how things work!

I have netgear wgr614 upstairs my laptop downstairs loads pages VERY slowly what can I do


Verify that it is indeed a wifi signal problem by moving the laptop upstairs temporarily.

If this fixes the problem, you're getting poor wifi signal downstairs. Not much you can do with the elements at hand. So try adding another element: install a wifi signal repeater (around US$ 25) somewhere in the middle. Or you can run a cable (or use Powerline Ethernet - around US$ 100) to downstairs, and there install a wifi access point (US$ 30-60). Or directly connect the laptop to the newly installed network wire.

If the problem isn't fixed, you have some other problem on the laptop: most likely a faulty network configuration. Verify against whatever PC you have upstairs; they should have identical configurations except their IP address (if fixed instead of DHCP).

Just to be on the safe side verify the laptop is properly operating and immune from virus and malware. Not all slowdowns are the system's fault.

Happy navigation!

Issue with router and ethernet cables


I imagine you reset/unplugged all of your routers, switches, and computers, starting with your modem, then router, and then each system?

There is a setup disk that need to be used to program your router with the ISP settings, passwords, and protocols for port forwarding, etc. I imagine you tried that.

Did you try all of your cables to make sure they weren't defective?

If you tried these,and the problem persists, the issue is a defective router. By default, the unit should transmit a wireless signal, and be ready to act as a routing switch for your other systems.

Ethernet connection gets disconnected very often


If none of the router jacks give you a solid connection and you maintain one when you directly connect to the modem, it is time to replace the router.

Netgear DGB111G Starter Kit


Path #1:
Change all of you cordless phones to another frequency (Other than 2.4 Ghz).
Path #2:
If the netgear is in the same room as you, couldn't you plug in directly an ethernet cable into the netgear? You could buy an ethernet cable at any computer stores around and they go up to 30 feet. And no CD installation would be needed, it should just work with a wire to another wire.
