Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

2 Answers

Netgear WGR614 power goes off automatically. I had to remove the power plug wire, re-insert it and even then sometimes power does not turn on, and at times it switches on. Once power is on, i'm able to use the internet, else I need to try it many times until power light is on. It sucks.

Hi,

the wall plug type power supply (made in China) may be bad. Unless you are absolutely sure the power supply is working properly, don't try to do a firmware upgrade then nothing sucks more than an incomplete upgrade, rendering the router useless.

Try to find a replacement power supply with perhaps higher current rating.

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

My netgear wgr614 router quit working. no lights are on, no signal. any advice?????


First check the power supply and where it's plugged into. Power strip breaker? plastic block fell out of outlet?
If you have a meter, check that you're getting 5 volts or more at the end you plug into the router. You could fudge it with a peice of wire and a flashlight bulb. If it lights up bright, at all, then it's putting out juice. If router still no lights, toss it. It's dead.
You'll need a new one.
Sorry

Wont accept pasword, wont allow accdess


Unplug and reset router.....

To log into the web interface of the router, simply plug everything in, load internet explorer and go to http://192.168.1.1/ . If this is the first setup, you should not even need to type in this address, and router login.com should load automatically to go through the wizard.

I have a wgr614 netgear router and I bought my daughter's ipod touch but i forgot my password and login to set her up with internet.?


READ ALL BEFORE DOING>> You can wipe out the old password by pressing the reset button usually located next to where the power goes in. It's recessed, so you'll need a pen tip or a paper clip to hold it down for about ten seconds, then pull the power and replace power.

Now you can use your browser to access it to re-configure it, and re-install password.
You will have to do complete setup again.
If your provider setup is not automatic, make sure you have the info needed BEFORE wiping it out.

Do you have your Smart Wizard installation CD?

Here is a link which will walk you through the setup. Download the page to your pc or print it out BEFORE wiping out the router. http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/netgear/index.html

Connected WGR614 v6 to DG814. Have internet light on, no wifi. Can't connect to the WGR614 via lan from pc. Tried to hard reset nothing happens. The PC and DG814 show connection to the WGR614 but can not...


Is this the initial set-up of the network? Sometimes it just needs to be rebooted a few times to connect. The way to reboot the network is to turn off the computers, then unplug the router, next unplug the modem. wait about 30/60 seconds then plug in the power to the modem. Wait for the modem to fully boot. Wait a minute or two, then plug in the power to the router. Wait till it has booted, another minute or two. Once the router is fully booted, then turn on the pc and check to see if it connects. If the computer was previously connected to the modem, before the router was incorporated, it still has the ip address assigned by the modem and has trouble releasing it and getting an ip address from the router.

Router keeps loosing connection to computer maybe


sometimes the modem will kick off line, from a power glitch. I recommend you isolate the printer from that modem power strip and see how that works.

Netgear WGR614 Power light goes off.


I understad that you need to powercycle the router for it to work. In this case, please note that this indicates failure with the router hardware. The only thing you can do now is upgrade the firmware on the router. You may check for firmware updates by visiting the site below:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1296

After uploading the firmware on the router, reset the router and reconfigure it.

If the issue persists ten the best bet for the router is to either get it replaced or trash it.

Lost intall disk


Well, i have set up several routers and they actually run better without the setup disk. as long as you know how to set it up, you it will work fine. (Setup disks tend to be over controlling of your network.)
To setup:
-Unplug your modem of all plugs.
-plug in your cable wire to the back of the modem.
-Plug in the ethernet wire from the modem to your router.
-Turn on the power(plug in) to your modem and give 2 mins.
Plug in ethernet cord from router to your computer.
-Plug in power to your router and give 30 seconds.
-power on your computer and give 1 min after start up.
-Make sure your internet is working and you are good 2 go.
