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.

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 wireless router is an external computer peripheral that accepts an incoming Internet connection, such as that from a cable modem, and converts it into a local wireless signal, allowing computers in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet.

Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless routers; the settings on Netgear routers can be changed by logging in to the router with a Web browser.

Determine your wireless router's IP address. Many Netgear routers are set to 192.168.0.1 by default.

In Windows 7, you can find this IP address by clicking "Start," then typing "cmd" in the search box, without clicking "Enter."

When the search completes, right-click on the command icon and select "Run as administrator." In the window that opens, type "ipconfig" and click enter.

Your router's IP address will be shown on the "Default Gateway" line.
In earlier versions of Windows, click "Start," then "Run," then type "Command" in the box, click "OK," then type "ipconfig" and press enter.

Your router's IP will be listed as the "Default Gateway."
Open an Internet browser and type the router's IP address into the address bar.


Enter your router's username and password if prompted to log in. By default, the user name and password may be "admin" and "password."

Change settings within the router's administrative center as necessary.
There will be several menus available where you can set up security for your router and set various communication options.

Choose to apply or save changes as necessary.
Your router's menus should have plainly visible buttons to apply and/or save changes you make to the settings.

Close the browser window when you are finished making changes.

How to reset netgear wgr614 to factory default


You can reset your Netgear router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings. For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

How to find my pass work for wifi


If you are using AT&T as your internet service provider the password might be on the side or bottom of the Modem/Router of theirs. Look for something called Network Key or Network Password/Passphrase.

If it's a wireless router you purchased and installed then you will need a network cable to go from the router into the pc. If you have a desktop it might already have the network cable going from the router to the desktop then use the desktop. You'll need to get into the router's configuration. To do that you'll have to open up internet explorer then type the router's ip address into the browsers address area where you would normally type www. Normally the router's ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1 Once you are into the router the configuration interface will come up. It will ask you for the userid and password. Most times people leave these set as the default that came with it. Once you're in, go to the wireless and wireless security tabs and there you'll see your SSID (the network you connect to) and the Password.

If you don't know the router's ip address, userid or password, you can go to www.google.com and type in the manufacturer's name and support. For example if you have a Netgear Router type "Netgear Support" . On their site for your model number they will have a manual that you find find the info you need. In addition to the 192.168.1.1 type of ip address, Netgear also had something like Netgear.routerlogin

You can also just google "Netgear router ip address" put your router model in between Netgear and router to scale down the search.

You can also do the same thing to find the default userid and password. Just google "Netgear Router userid or Password".

Where is the WEP/WPA code on a Netgear router


The WEP / WPA security information can be obtained by accessing your Netgear router setup page. You'll need the router's IP address to access the setup page. From your computer, go to Start > Run > type "cmd" (w/o the quotes), hit Enter > DOS black screen appears, type "ipconfig" (w/o the quotes), hit Enter. Take note of the Default Gateway IP address - that is your router's IP address.
Pull up a browser and enter the IP address in the address bar, hit Enter. You will then be asked for your router's Username and Password, enter the required information. If you don't know the info, please contact your router manufacturer for assistance. Once you're in the router setup page, go to the wireless security settings to check the WEP or WPA code.
Should you still need further assistance on this matter, please contact your router manufacturer.
I hope this helps.

Problem connecting to Netgear WNR854T Gigabit edition


The WNR854T will downspeed to 10Mbps on its ethernet ports so speed should not be a problem.
Suggest you try crossover ethernet cable between router and dsl modem.

Installation cd for Netgear router


The default login details and IP address for your Netgear router can be found on the bottom of the router.
Open your web browser and in the address bar type the IP address you found on the bottom of your router.
You should then be asked for your login details.
Once logged in you can setup your router as normal without the need of the CD.
Hope this helps,
