Check the wireless switch of your laptop if "on" or not. Then try again to scan available wireless network

    ok good..

    Here's a thorough set up

    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 typinghttp://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm orhttp://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:

    6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

    If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

    a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.
    b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
    c. Click on the Advanced tab.
    d. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
    e. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network. Please select your network and click on Connect. It will ask you for the network key.
    f. Please type in the network key and then confirm it. Network key is the password you type on the key 1 of the wireless settings of the router.
    g. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

    If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2, please follow the steps below:

    a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.
    b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
    c. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
    d. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
    e. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
    f. Select your network and click on Connect.
    g. It will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect. Network key is the password you type on the key 1 of the wireless settings of the router.

    If you are using Windows Vista, please follow the steps below:

    a. Click Start then select Connect To.
    b. Connect to a network window will show up.
    c. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
    d. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

    From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.


    No Wireless Connection Found in Range

    Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

    1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
    2. Connect to the router by typinghttp://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm orhttp://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
    3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

    Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

    4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
    5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
    6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
    7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
    8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

    Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

    Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

    a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
    b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
    c. Possible wireless interferences

Thank you for using FixYa
Wireless connections have a lot in common so here is a link that will give you the general configurations for a wireless Router to PC. Keep in mind that you will need to configure both the computer and the router in two separate steps. That is why it is best to use the setup disk that normally comes with a new piece of equipment and the cables.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

Also keep in mind that the equipment should be matched or designed to work with the other equipment. You will have some kind of a modem either a cable modem or internal modem or external modem that the router will have to connect to.

It is best to allow your own Internet Service Provider to set up the connections. They may not be able to support the configuration if you do not purchase it from them and then you will need to do-it-yourself.

Here are the links for configuring the computer with the different operating systems

Win XP http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/wlan_client_configure.mspx?mfr=true
Win Vista

My HP laptop won't connect to my NETGEAR WGR614v7 router


What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.

Additional FAQs that might be helpful are at http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2589. That page has a link to setting up XP for wireless networking as well.

My netgear wgr614 is not working. I have no


To establish a wireless connection between the router and computer, the router’s wireless setting (SSID or Network Name, Channel, and Mode of communication) has to be configured. Please follow the steps below to configure the wireless settings on your NETGEAR router.
  1. Connect a computer to the LAN port of the router using an ethernet cable.
  2. Open up a browser and type in the following URL: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  3. Type the Username as admin, and Password as password. Then click OK.
    1. To change the Wireless settings, click Wireless Settings under Setup on the left menu bar.
  1. Under Wireless Network, (make a note of these settings, you need these values to configure your wireless clients)
2.
    • Change SSID from default NETGEAR to any desired name (for e.g. Home)
    • Select the Region as applicable - Incorrect selection may cause performance problems.
    • Select any one of the available Channel.
    • Apply the changes
Configuring Wireless Clients:
The steps explained below use the Windows XP wireless client. If your card came with
its own wireless configuration utility, you may use that as well.
  1. Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
  1. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
  1. on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked, check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings.
Then click OK.
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks
  1. This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key (if you are using WEP security, make sure you are typing the network key, not the Passphrase) and click Connect
  1. Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wirelessly.
