Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Add device to my network

I have two computers on my network. they are wireless and connect to the internet thru my router and cable modem. I also have a wireless access point plugged into a powered hub. The powered hub also has my linksys network storage link adapter plugged into it. The router address is 192.168.1.1 and the access point address is 192.168.2.2.
Can (and if so, how) can I put the access point and hub on the same network with my two computers so that I can access the drives on my storage link adapter?

You may be able to log into the access point from a wireless connection, or set your computer to a 192.168.2.x (maybe 10 or higher) and turn off the DHCP of the AP, then change the DHCP of the AP to something fixed in your 192.168.1.x address range like 192.168.1.251 or similar.

Now, plug in the AP to the WGR. It can now be accessed via 192.168.1.251 or whatever you gave it, and it will let the Netgear WGR give out 192.168.1.x addresses through the WAP.

Please provide feedback and let me know if it worked for you. In your spare time, be sure to password protect the WAP away from the default password. Post back if you have any problems and please provide the name of the Access Point so I have an idea what you used. We use TP Links here.

    Please start naming hardware. It's not easy to understand since you have posted as 2 users. In my network, I have a WGR-614 router, and 2 switches. One switch on one side of my office powers 3 computers, and my network camera, the other switch on the other side powers 2 network printers, my workstation, my VoIP box, and my network storage device.



    Except for the VoIP adapter, every piece of equipment has a 192.168.1.x address. The printers sit at 120 and 121, the phone system at 188, the network storage device is found by the Storage Central software, and the netcam sits at 253. My workstation is fixed at 105 and all the rest of the computers DHCP their own address.



    If you are using Netgear products, they have a link on the website on how to convert a router into an access point. This is the link http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail...

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Hooking up wireless router to phone jack


Please add a comment with your router model number and the type of network service that you have.

Most routers need to be connected to a modem that connects to the outside line. (Depending on your service, this could be a DSL or cable modem or a unit that connects to a phone.)

For a wired incoming network:
You connect your RJ-11 (phone cable) to the appropriate-sized port on the modem. Then connect a RJ-45 cable between the modem and your router. Then connect any wired devices via additional RJ-45 cables (many routers include a four port switch). A few have a USB connection option for one computer; most with USB ports have the other type of USB connection for sharing a hard drive or printer. Use one wired connection to set up the router, including your encryption and password to secure your wireless network. (For some ISPs, you'll need to do some extra setup, including programming your username and password. This is usually not needed for DHCP connections, where the IP address is dynamically generated.) Finally, use the encryption protocol and password to set up the wireless network on your wireless devices. (Under Windows, go to the Windows Network control panel and choose Add New Network. For other wireless devices, you'll need to find a similar setting.)

There are a few modem/router combination units. However, those are less common. They will have both the RJ-11 and RJ-45 ports. This is for wired networks. For the devices that let you share your cell phone's network, you will probably see a USB port of some type on the unit.

I hope this helps.

I think i hve the router hooked up wrong how do i fix it


Connecting Multiple Computers
thru a router to internet






Tips on choosing the right network can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/install.mspx





Since you said there are other computer in the house I assume they will all
go thru the router. I also assume you are using ethernet to connect the new
computer so it will be a "wired" connection. A rounter can also have wireless
connections if the other computers have wireless internet on the other
computers.



To connect more than one computer to the Internet, you need a router.
A router allows you to connect several computers to each other and to the
Internet. The router sits between your computers and the modem provided by your
ISP. You connect the router to the modem, and then connect all your computers to
the router.

To connect a router and multiple computers to the
Internet


Contact an Internet service provider (ISP) and have them configure
an Internet connection to your home. If possible, have the ISP place the modem
in the room with your primary computer.



Connect your router to your modem in one of the two following
ways:

If you currently have a computer connected directly to your
modem:
Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and
plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN,
or WLAN on the back of your router.



If you don't currently have your computer connected to the
Internet:
Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router)
into your modem, and the other end of the network cable into the
Internet, WAN, or WLAN port
on your router.

68573-connect-modem-to-router-small.jpg



Plug in your router. After a minute or two, the Internet, WAN, or WLAN light
on your router should light up, indicating that it has successfully connected to
your modem.

Determine whether your computer has a network adapter, and add one if
necessary. Instructions to determine if you have a network adaptor or to install
a Network adaptor can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/netadapter.mspx



Shut down your computer by clicking Start and then clicking
Turn Off Computer. Then click Turn Off.



Connect the network cable to your computer's network adapter.



68573-connect-computer-small.jpg


Connect the other end of the network cable to your network equipment.



68573-connect-to-router-small.jpg


Start your computer and log on to Windows. Windows automatically detects that
you are connected to the Internet.

Repeat steps 6, 7, and 8 for each one of your computers. If you have a
computer in a different room you can find instructions at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wired.m

Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting
Connect

If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.

Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.

Does folder sharing work through WiFi?
Might be that the IP ranges are not in the same subclass network if the IP numbers are not coming from the same DHCP server.
Did you check the IP number on Computer B in case of the cabled connection and when it is connected on the WiFi? They should only differ in the last digits, not the first 3 groups.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

OK well I think it is better to set it up like this... Connect the Modem to the Phone Line, Connect the Modem to the Router with an Ethernet Cable, Use a CABLE connection from the Main PC to the Router. (Ya gonna ditch the USB WiFi) Set that Main PC connection up to connect to the internet from the Main PC, thru Router thru Modem.... Then from Slave, install the USB adapter in this PC, and use this to connect DIRECTLY to the WiFi Router... and thus to the internet. This way will give the best transfer rates, and reliability
