Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Wgr614 disconnect Hi, I am using this netgear WGR614 N150 router with my reliance Broadband connection. Recently it has started getting disconnected frequently from internet. All devices attached to this get disconnect once this issue happens. I am using 2 machines mostly: 1. Windows XP desktop (wired) 2. Samsung S3 Android phone. (wireless) I contacted my ISP and they are saying its not their fault which seems to be true since internet is working fine when PC is directly connected to modem w/o router. I have hard reset the router and have applied many troubleshooting steps mentioned on various tech websites but nothing seems to help. Please help me in this regard. Other Information: 1. IP and DNS provided by ISP are both dynamic and hence assigned to automatic. 2. Even at the time of disconnection I am still able to open router home page and can browse around different settings. 3. there is no change in the way lights blink on router even at the time of disconnection. 4. Problem gets solved when i use opendns instead of automatic but only for 1 session. After that its not even able to connect once and i have to again switch to automatic dns settings to connect.

SOURCE: Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.

Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

SOURCE: Netgear Router WGR614 will not connect to internet

Hi,
Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.

Bridge the 5100 first.
1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.

2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.

3. Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.

4. Click the PPP locations button.

5. The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.

6. Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"

7. Click Save Changes.

8. A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."

9. A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"

10. Reboot your computer and and then connect the router

11.Configure the router for PPPoE using your ISP uid/pass

12.Configure your wireless using WEP

13.Desktop : Using Dell wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,wep as configured in the router
Laptop : follow the same as desktop

(by default dell wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in dell pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)

14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seg..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop

Cheers !!!

Hello, I dont think you need the drivers for Router. And first of all you need to connect your modem to your router through ethernet cable. And after connecting your modem, configure your wireless router by typing this IP address in internet explorer: 192.168.1.1 The user id is admin and the password is password. Then detect your broadband connection by using the option in the router. Try connecting your Laptop to wifi after setting the connection.

Internet connection disappears.


You may either need to do a firmware update, or reset it back to factory default, you can download the firmware from the netgear site, or you can log onto the router and do a reset of the router.

Hope this helps,

Hi,
There are two things involved in getting disconnected either your comp is getting disconnected or your router.
Instance 1
Computer getting disconnected connect your comp and router with ethernet cable if using wireless. Because at times it's not router but the wireless connectivity that gets loost.
Instance 2
Router getting disconnected...
Reset your router by holding the reset pin at the back of your router for 15 secs and lights will start flashing on router wait for 1 min you'll have router reset to default settings and now check that dsl or internet light on your router is flashing or static if flashing contact your isp issue with the line if static run the disc for router installation again and it'll remain connected after successful installation.
