Re: Router stopped working

Try first to reset it to the factoty settings by pressing the brown button on the back of the unit, next to the Internet connection. You will have to reprogram the router with your PPPoE settings, if any, and your wireless security.

Worked fine up till yesterday now wireless wont work

The wireless cards in the computers need to be configured with the router's wireless settings so the computers can connect to the wireless router.
Resetting the wireless router back to the factory defaults will not let the computers connect to the wireless router without configuring the network card in the computers with the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you configure your wireless router with encryption settings to prevent unauthorized persons accessing your wireless network and Internet connection and your computers.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

> everything is good

The connection between each computer and the router is the "good" part.

Thus, the router is routing packets "between" each of the computers (clients & servers) within your local area network.

However, your problem seems to be on the 'WAN' (Wide Area Network) side, namely between the router's WAN port and the DSL-modem, and/or between the DSL-modem and the telephone-jack on the wall, and/or the telephone-wires inside your walls, and/or the telephone-wires from the outside of your building to the nearest telephone company's CO (Central Office).

As a test, disconnect the router from the DSL-modem, and directly connect one computer, to see if the "then it will/not" behaviour still happens when the router is not active, i.e., "bypassed".
Then, contact your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot while that one computer is connected.

Your Wireless Router may have its name not broadcasting or hidden, check in the settings if it's hidden then manually connect your P.C.'s Laptops ,you won't find it using 'search for network'. Just right click on wireless icon near clock, select 'Open network and sharing center' and right click it. Now select 'Set up a new connection or network', Select 'Manually connect to a wireless network' and fill in the gaps. should work fingers crossed.

My US Robotics USR8054 Wireless Modem stopped working

DHCP may not be working on the router. What IP address does the router give your computers? It should be a address as default. If you are not getting an IP, then you will have to set a static IP in the range above to connect to the router setup webpage and reenable DHCP.

Router Suddenly stopped working...?

try power cycling your network (turn off all of the hardware)
First turn off the computer,
second, the router;
lastly the router (wgr614).

Now, turn the hardware in this order:
  1. Turn on Modem. Wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on Router (wgr614). wait 1 minute.
  3. Now turn on the Computer(s).
this should refresh your internet connection. If not, check your routers settings for any wrong info.
to access your router's homepage, type this ( into Internet Explorer.

Wireless router security from a connected pc (use a cable you dont want to change settings over wireless and not be able to change it back) will start the router web interface, where you can read the help screens on how to, then set the router to one of several secure modes that it supports

The wizards are pretty good
