Connecting Netgear Wireless Router to @Wire Wireless Router

Im in a situation right now that I have to use an old WIN98Se Computer that is not wireless. I am renting out a room and the owner of the home has AT&T and has a 2Wire Gateway Wireless Router. I brought with me a Netgear WGR614v5 wireless router. Is it possible to connect my WIN98SE station wirelessly thru the Netgear router? There is no phone line near my room. Eventually I will have to get a USB Wireless, but I cant for another 3 weeks. Help! lol

    Its not a 2wire HomePortal® 1800HW Router, its a 2wire 2701HG-B

    I do know that, but for now, because of a recent split, I cannot afford the $30 for the USB device for another 3 or 4 weeks. Can i use the Netgear as a bridge to repeat the wireless signal from the 2wire?

    I went to that website and my version is not supported. I may still try anyway to see what happens.....

    You can load a new firmware, DDWRT, into your router, and that will allow you to set it up as an access point (not as a Gateway.).

    Full instructions on how to do this are on the DDWRT website, as well as confirming their firmware will work in your router. Once you load it, you'll never need to load the original firmware unless you just want to.

You don't need to connect your netgear, you have only to connect your computer to the 2Wire (is wireless also) - If your computer ins not wireless Only you have to do is insert a wireless PCI card in your computer or and USB wireless device and connect to the 2Wire Wireless Router

Neatgear wireless router wpn824 v2


Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.

Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.

Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.

Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...

Computer interfacing


You have a computer (what manufacturer and model?) connected to a Netgear WGR614 wireless router (please confirm the router manufacturer and model) by wire or wireless?

If the computer is connected wireless is it with a wireless adapter built into the computer or added to the computer?

If it was added to the computer what is the manuracturer's name and model of the add-on device?

Has any other computer ever successfully connected to the internet using your router?
  • If so was the computer connected using a wire, if possible?
  • If so was the computer connected wirelessly?
If no computers were connected successfully to the router please provide the name of your internet service provider?
I also may need to know the city and state you are located in or other information. We probably need to configure the router to attach to your internet service providers equipment

The following are to determine if the internet service providers equipment has been successfully installed and the capabilities of that equipment as it may support connecting your router, if necessary, and your computer to the internet.
Were any computers ever successfully connected to the internet by directly connecting to your internet service providers hardware?

If yes how were they connected
  • USB cable?
  • Ethernet Cable?
  • Wireless?
  • If wireless what is the manufacturer and model of the internet serivce providers hardware providing the wireless service?
