Netgear wgr614 v6 As Bridge for XBOX

I have an XBOX 1 and want to upgrade the bridge I have been using. I have used the Linksys WET11 but now want to upgrade to a faster speed Bridge.
I have a spare Netgear Router WGR614 v6 that I am lead to think can be made to work as a bridge. I need some hand holding to set it up and get it working on my Xbox and wireless network.
Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the info.
    I still do not understand how to make the Router perform as a wireless bridge. My ISP is ATT/SBC.
    If you are familiar with the Linksys WET11 Bridge you will get the idea as to what I am trying to do.The old WET11 is too slow for video so I want to try and use my faster Router as a replacement and configer it as a wireless bridge.
    I want to plug the WGR614v6 directly in t my old Xbox and have the WGR614v6 act as a bridge to my wireless modem/router (2wire Homeportal)

    I have exactly the same question as mhamerm, did anyone set the wgr614 into bridge mode to act as a wirless bridge to an exisiting wireless network and connect an Xbox?

    I have a similar problem,
    I have a WIFI connection with 3 devices connected and I would like to increase the range adding as a bridge a WGR614 in the way that instead of 30 meters I could reach 60 meters in the garden

    I have seen a tutorial of Netgear saying that I have to connect the 614 with a PC AND with the ROUTER is there a simpler solution?

I'll take a stab at this. It's a bit difficult because I don't know what your level of expertise is. You're actually using the Netgear wireless ROUTER not a bridge. Your ISP can use a couple of methods to give you service. DSL companies like Verizon probably use PPPoE which require you to login and provide a password and VZ is notorious for closing down port 25.

O.K. Did I mention I don't like them very much? Anyway, I'm going to give you a link to Netgear's excellent web site for configuring a router and the XBOX connection. This is the whole list of v6 compatible instructions. Note the very bottom link to use Netgear routers with XBOX.

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v6.asp

Note under the Troubleshooting topic that there is a configuration and two setup files, depending on what you're connecting to, and some tips on what to do if it doesn't work.

It's not as bad as it looks.

Netgear WGR614 Wireless Router what do i need to


Theoretical covrage is 600 feet ... 300 on each side of the antenna ... provided there are no walls, no trees, no cars etc. between you and the antenna.

Driver for linksys wet11


I don't think Linksys WET11 has a driver. However you can configure it by connecting it physically to a router or straight to your computer (ensure the LAN LED is illuminated on the WET11). Beware though that since it doesn't give an IP address, you may not be able to configure it right away. If you connected it straight to your computer, you need to set a static IP on your pc (give it something like 192.168.1.10 so you will be on the same IP range as the WET11). Once done, try accessing http://192.168.1.225. Leave username blank, default password is admin.

Use Netgear WGR614 as an access point


Right, it won't work. The 614 doesn't have the software to make it into a BRIDGE or AP CLIENT. It can only be made into an Access Point, meaning it needs a wired connection INTO it.

A TP-Link http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_spe.asp?id=36 WA501G costs under $40 and gives you the ability to go from wireless to wired. It takes about 15 minutes to set up, and will plug into your DVR's ethernet port to extend your wireless network. It's programmed by setting the mode, AP, CLIENT, BRIDGE, etc. We use them in areas where we want to extend a wireless signal for distances like across parking lots, but it also will work across a room or two.

There are also wired ethernet extenders that use house wiring like the Netgear XE-102, about $80, that look like two wall transformers with ethernet jacks. You plug one into the router/switch and the other into the DVR.
