    You'll probably need to connect your computer directly to the router using an network cable in order to diagnose the problem and/or correct it.

    Once you make this connection, you should be able to open the configuration software using a web browser set to the URLhttp://192.168.1.1 (a kind of magic URL used a lot in this kind of stuff -- another less commonly used one is 10.0.0.1).

    If you make a connection successfully you'll probably get asked for a username and password -- unless you set one before, admin/admin is a good bet. Check the manual http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc... for details.

    A good bet for starters is to use the administration tool to reset the router to factory settings; in most cases these days modern versions of Windows of Mac will just do the right thing and get you connected pretty easily -- after that you can get serious and do things like add security and so on.

Hi,
If you right click on the networks icon in the bottom right hand corner of your page, and view your wireless networks, you should see it on the list, if it is setup properly. If you do, click on it and Connect to this Network. If you don't then try pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Or pushing a paper clip into the little reset hole in the back of the router (if there is one) and holding for 15 seconds. Then wait for a minute or two until all the light have stopped flashing and are remaining on.

If you type www.routerlogin.com into your internet browser's address bar, it should take you to the router's menu. Default username/password is usually something like admin and password.
You can diagnose the status of the router from here.

Make sure you have got the latest driver for your Wireless Card in your computer, obviously.
And check in Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections, that Never Dial a Connection is checked. This is usually set as default anyway, but you never know, it might be as simple as that.

One last thing to try is to Run Services (services.msc) and scroll down and make sure DCHP client and DNS client are started.

Hope this helps

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.

I have a Netgear wireless router WGR614 v5 with the AC adapter of 120V-60Hz-16W. I've moved to Europe where the electricity is 220V. Can I use an AC adapter of 220V for this wireless router? Thanks a lot...


Yes, make sure you have a new power supply with the right voltage output, enough current (if the new power supply is rated for more current output, it will be OK), and the right plug with the right polarity.

Check your power supply, some will actually work with a wide range of voltage, some actually go from 100-250VAC. 50Hz-60Hz

No connectivity to 2nd desktop or laptop - although worked before


Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).

1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)

If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.
