Netgear Wireless Router Problems

For the last couple of weeks, my internet kicks off and I have to reset my wireless router. I have a desktop that is hardwired, a laptop that is wireless and Vontage (which seems to have esclated my problem) all hooked up to it. My router is about 2-1/2 years old - do you think I just need to upgrade to a newer version

    These routers usually die after a year or so.

Use the process of elmination, disconnect Vontage, does the problem go away? If no then look at the modem (cable or dsl).
Hint! If you have a cable modem, make sure all cable connections are tight from the outside of the house, to every TV, and from the wall to the cable modem. Use plyers to tighten all of them.

Im having problems connecting to the internet after i got a netgear wireless dual band router to my pannaway modem


First check that router light is blinking. If not, need to repair or replace.

If light is blinking, you need to reset it. There will be a reset button back side of your router, press and hold it for 30 seconds. Restart your router and reconfigure.

Also check that you had enabled wireless setting. Ask here if problem still occurring http://www.vtechsquad.com/wireless-router-support/

You can do a reset on the router to make a factory settings.On the back of the router you can look for a small hole usually with the word reset.Press it for 20 secs with the router on but disconnected from the Ethernet cable.Start up your PC and surf to the router Web UI (192.168.***) and make your settings.

My xbox disconects when my computer and xbox are on at the same time. we have had the wireless router for 8 weeks and had no problems untill a week ago. (NETGEAR WGR614 wireless router)


You can try to restart the router. If that won't do the trick, you can look if they have accidently the same ip address. If they have, let the computer get an ip adress from the dhcp server.

Or just reset the router.

Hope this was helpful! :)

Very, very highly unlikely. It doesn't work like that.
Netgear is probably the manufacturer of your wireless card, and the rubbish software they give you is freaking you out.

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.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


Is your desktop getting an ip address from the router?
You said that you reset the router, do you mean turning it on and off or pressing the reset button?

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 !!!
