Using a CAT5 cable, connect your computer to the router, disconnect the power supply from the router, and hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Then reconnect the power cord, and open the browser on your computer. Type in the address www.routerlogin.net and press the enter key. This will take to the main setup menu. Set up the router as you wish. To secure your router connection, vist these websites: http://www.labnol.org/internet/secure-your-wireless-wifi-network/10549/ and http://www.practicallynetworked.com/support/wireless_secure.htm. Hope this helps! For more info on your router, go to http://support.netgear.com/product/WGR614v7

Tip

Secure your Wireless Router - General Guide


How do I secure my wireless router? A general guide

To set up wireless router security, there are four main steps, which are the same for most routers. These are:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
4) Enable WPA encryption.

This is a very general guide, which will use the Netgear DG834G wireless router as an example. As every router is different, you will need your user manual to get the most out of this tip. (If you need help with finding a manual, see ‘How To Find a Router Manual’).

Here are the details:

1) Login to your router, using a wired (Ethernet) connection.
Make sure you have a cabled connection to your router. Then open a web browser, and type the router’s IP address into the address bar. For example, this is http://192.168.0.1 for the Netgear DG834G (Note, there is no ‘www’).

Enter username and password at the prompt.

Netgear DG834G: the defaults are username: admin and password: password (or, for UK Sky users - username: admin and password: sky). Other routers – common usernames are admin or blank: common passwords are admin, password, 1234, or blank.

If you log in successfully, you should then see the router configuration screen.

2) Change the router login password.
To change the router password, find a menu option such as Setup, Tools, Administration, Basic Settings, Management, or Utilities. On the Netgear DG834G – this option is under Maintenance > Set Password.

Set and confirm a new login password. Click ‘Save/Apply’ when finished.

Tip: Write the router login password on a label, and stick it to the router.

3) Change the SSID (network name):
The SSID or Network Name is the name you see when you are looking for an ‘available wireless network’.

To access this setting, find a menu option such as Wireless, Wireless Security, Security, or perhaps Advanced Settings. For the Netgear DG834: the Network Name/ SSID option is under Setup > Wireless Settings.

Change the SSID from the default, to anything you like. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters – but do not use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Save’ or ‘Apply’ when finished.

4) Enable WPA encryption
Find the Wireless Security or Wireless Encryption Options section - often in the same section as the SSID (eg for Netgear – it’s still in Wireless Settings).

You may have a number of encryption options. Select WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK (good choices to start with).

You then need to enter a network key. The box to enter this may be labelled Network Key: it may also be labelled WPA-PSK, WPA Shared Key, PSK, Security key, Passphrase, Pre-shared key, Authentication key . On the Netgear DG834Gv3 it is labelled ‘Network Key’.

The network key should be a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers - eg, 451ThisisGooDFunforgEeks7899. It is case sensitive. (If you think your connection is likely to be hacked, pick a very strong network key.)


Note down your network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply/Save’ when finished.

That's it - you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.

When you next connect wirelessly, you should see your wireless router with its new name in the 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

If you get stuck with any of this, consult your manual, or post on Fixya. Good luck with securing your router.

A word about WPS: WPS is a shortcut method to help you implement security on a wireless router. Consult your user manual if your router is WPS enabled, and you prefer to use WPS.

What is the code for netgear WGR614v7 to enter to a laptop for wireless wifi?


Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How do we find the WEP key for my WGR614v9


Configuring WEP:
  1. Use an ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar. n101675_image001.jpg
  5. Under Security Options, select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
  6. From Security Encryption (WEP) > Authentication Type, select Automatic.
  7. From Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, select 64-bit or 128-bit. NOTE: You will need to configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  8. From Security Encryption (WEP) Key, select Key 1 and enter a key.
    • Note: WEP keys are entered in hexadecimal digits, which are any combination of 0-9, A-F.
      • If you selected 64-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 10 hexadecimal digits for your key.
      • If you selected 128-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 26 hexadecimal digits for your key.
    • SAVE or KEEP NOTE of these values - they will be required to connect wirelessly to your network.
  9. Click Apply to save the settings.

Got a netgear wireless modem from a friend and she


The Netgear site should have to software to download, but with the Router connected to the computer you really should be able to connect to the router's onboard software by, using Web Address http://192.168.1.1 and logging in to the router. Use User Name admin and leave the password blank. Go ahead and set up all the goodies you need, like Security and Pass Codes. I have4 bee4n using a Netgear Router in my home network for many years and have no complaints! This software is the exact same software they have on the setup disk.

Cannot access ssid that has excellent strength. Its a Netgear WGR614v7 It stopped working after I added WEP security and a password. when I click on SSID it just says Window cannot access SSID. It's ok...


To connect to your wireless router, it needs its wireless settings configured and also the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

I can not connect to the internet on netgear. It kept telling me that '' the settings on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network.'' So what is the Security type: ?...


I would reset the unit and start from scratch, evidently some variables have been entered and WE do not know what they are, so start over with a clean slate. If you are going to encrypt your network, I recommend that you do, you need a usb drive to save your settings to, this makes it easier to add other pc's to your network.

I believe Netgear uses a Network Wizard to generate encryption codes, I would also suggest changing the default channel to something else, I am quite sure you are not the only person using Netgear in your neck of the woods (unless you are really deep out there?) this will help prevent any conflicts with other networks. Also change the default password to something you can remember.

NETGEAR WGR614v7 Network Security key


Hi, you need to connect to the routers admin pages to configure the wireless settings and security. Check out this page:-
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101676.asp

When you get to step 6, click the WPA-PSK security setting and it will give you a box to type in a password of your choice, make it memorable but difficult to guess, so a mixture of numbers and letters. I think its a min of 8 characters.
Hope this helps..

I cant connect thru my netgear router model wgr614v7


If you hook your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable you don't need the key. You can log into the router and change the WEP Key to anything you want, but u have to be directly connected to the router not going through the wireless.
