Netgear WGR614 v6 router drops connection

Ok, so I've had this router for about 1 and a half years. Just recently the internet connection started dropping like every 5 minutes so i have to power cycle it and it works for about another 5 minutes. The wireless light, internet light, and the 1 port light will al be on....and then the internet light starts flashing and then drops the connection....the wireless light goes out but the internet light stays on and all 4 port lights are on when it drops the connection. I tried changing the channel and that didnt work so I don't know what to do.

Hi, what ISP are you using (aol,tiscali...?), and how are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless? I had similar problems with mine, it wouldn't connect or would drop connection, or loose all the settings. I updated the firmware to the latest from here:- 
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614v6.asp

Be sure this is the correct model as firmware differes from model to model.
Then I had to manually configure my ISP settings etc. Or you may have software from your ISP which configures for you.
Hope this helps.

Drops the internet connection and has to be rebooted at least once a day.


Try to reduce the MTU of the router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492, for Cable connection size is 1400 or 1463. You can do it on the router's admin page http://192.168.1.1

Netgear wgr614 v6 As Bridge for XBOX


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.

Losing connection with WGR614 v6 router


Well, glad I found someone with the same problem, the answer will certianly surprise you.
The answer is cordless phones and satellite interent.
if you have cordless phones and/or satellite internet it will lose signal.
They run on the same frequency.
To fix it log into your router, goto wireless settings, then check the box for enable channel settings. You may have to reboot the router and PC.
Should help.
Good luck and have a happy new year.

Do you need a manual to set this up? It looks like there are different version of this wireless router. Which one do you have? This can be identified on the package or the unit's bottom label.

Once we know which version you have we can continue.
