    Have you tried resetting the router to the factory defaults? There is usually a pinhole on the base or near the power cord; the reset button is inside the hole and can be pushed using a paperclip.

There should be a restore factory settings button on the back of the router. You can find the user manual here under "Documentation." Here is the specific information on how to do a hard reset.

Lost cd cant get my netgear wgr614 v9 to connect to internet

Do a soft reset first. Turn OFF the computer(s) that is(are) connected to the router, then pull the power cable from the back of the router. Leave it OFF for a minute or two. Plug the power cable back into the router and give it a few minutes to come back up. Then turn ON the computer and you should be good to go.

You don't need the CD to get into the router. Type in in your browser to pull up the login screen. The default username is admin and the default password is password.

You may have to do a hard reset. While the router is powered ON, use an ink pen or paper clip to push in the reset button on the back of the unit for 10 seconds or so until the lights flash ON and OFF. The router will be reset to factory default settings and you will have to go into the router as described above to run setup.

The manual for the Netgear WGR614v9 is here:

I need my netgear password

Most of the NETGEAR devices, except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches, have the following default username and password:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password. Click here to learn how to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings


  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface
Click here for video walk through example of how to reset the WGR614v9 router.


If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.
Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.

Good luck.

Recently we had WIFI installed in our business. The pass code is a huge alpha numeric number that is rediculous for us to give our customers for internet access. How can i change this passcode?

You'll have to log-in to the wireless router. If it is an off-the-shelf router you can consult the documentation or use a search engine to find out the default username and password for the router. For example, if you have, say, a Netgear WGR614v9, you would Google "default username and password for Netgear WGR614v9" You will also need to know what to type into your web browser, such as (for a Netgear).

However, if someone set the router up for you, they most likely and should have changed the password if not also the username. You may have to call them to find out that info. If the ISP installed the router, call them.

Once signed-in to the router look for something like "wireless settings" or similar. Then just change the passphrase.

Be advised that making the passphrase shorter or easy to remember jeopardizes your network security. If you have any valuable data on your network you shouldn't be letting customers on it without taking precautions.

I installed a netgear WGr614V6 but while trying to connect to the net, it requires a password, the given user admin and password does nor work , how to reset password

The username and password given to you is for the router itself, to which is required to enter the configuration page. As for the username and password needed to access the internet is given to you by the ISP(Internet Service Provider), in which case, you should contact their customer service and request it.

My brand new netgear WGR614v9 routers default username and password do not work. can someone help?

If you are getting the username and password from the content that came with the device and its not working.
You should check to make sure your caps are not on. If your on a laptop make sure the 'num lock' is not on.
Make sure your typing the password exactly like it is shown in the content that was provided with the unit.

1. Make sure to use the exact upper/lower case as stated in the manual. The password is usually case sensitive but the username may be either, depending on the vendor's implementation. In doubt, make sure they are identical as in the manual.

2. You may have received a router with a pre-existing configuration. Look for the "Factory reset" feature in your manual. Once the reset is done, you should be able to connect using the default username and password.
