    What version of Windows are you using on your computer, and also do you have access to a network cable? One should have been supplied with the router. You may also need the CD which came with your router.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

I recently reset my router too factory settings by holding the reset button for 30 seconds or so. Now that its back on the lights for internet are on but the wifi light isn't on and its not giving out...


Hi,
by default wireless is turned off until you administer and set security. after a good reset it is off.
you must hard wire to the router and then browse it using its IP.
once you are connected then open a command prompt and type "ipconfig" hit enter it will display your IP the a subnet mask then the gateway. The gateway Ip is the routers number so enter that number in a browser and the follow below for setup screens. because you reset this the ID will be "admin and the password will be "password"

I am trying to get my wii to work on my netgear wgr164 v7 but i keep geting an error code 51030 & i need my password for my netgear


if you dont remember password for your wireless and also for your router.

the best bet would be to hit reset button on wireless router.

you will have to go through the phase of setting it all up again.

once you hit the reset, all the ip details (username and password are located under the netgear router)

let me know how you get on

Need to know the passphrase for the wrg 614 v7


The paraphase is something the owner sets up. you can log into the router @

192.168.0.1 OR www.routerlogin.net. Use the default username (admin) and password (password) .
Go to Wireless, then security. you will see the paraphrse there.

If you need to reset the router do the following:

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.
Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

I did not get installation CD with my re-furbished netgear WGR614 V7, any clue where I can get one?


That'll will be difficult it doesn't appear they ship out the CDs.

If you really need the CD, call local(small) computer shops ask if they carry the model, if they do, they can make you a copy of the CD for probably just the cost of the CD itself.

The alternative is to simply use the Setup Wizard that's built into the Web interface. Open up your web browser(when connected to one of the LAN ports of the WRG614) and browse to http://192.168.1.1
Default username: admin
Default password: password
(If those do not work, hold the reset button on the back of the router for 20 seconds and try again)

Netgear WGR614 v6; where is the hard reset button,procedure to reset


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. )
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.)
  1. Release the button.
  2. Wait for the router to reboot.
  3. Log in with the default password.
If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  1. Unplug the router's power.
  2. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  3. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.
Log in with the default password

ROUTER PASSWORD


The universal pword is, believe it or not, 1234
Here is the website with exact instructions from NetGear itself - these instructions are for the v4 version of your router - make sure this is the correct version of the WGR614, or else this exact page will not work for you - if you have v7 instead, go to the v7 page, etc.
