Question about NetGear WGR614 54Mbps Wireless Router (obwgr614_1)

Router blocking websites

Router seems to work fine for most websites - but i have one site that i go to all the time and it seems to take forever to load up. i am on high speed connection (rogers) and have tried to just hook up bypassing the router hooked up directly to the modem and that site loads up no problem. it only loads very slow when the router is hooked up and this is only something new that is happening - i've had the WGR614 v7 Netgear router for well over a year and no problems untill the last few weeks.

Do a firmware upgrade

Firmware Upgrade

1. Please verify the model and version of the router underneath it.
2. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and select the model of the router.
3. Please click on the appropriate version of the router.
4. Select the link of the latest firmware. Please click on the button Right-click and Save to Download.
5. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with wired or Ethernet connection only. Before you upgrade, write down all current settings as you need to enter them manually after upgrading.

6. Using the computer hardwired on the router, open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
7. 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.
8. 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.

9. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
10. Click Browse and locate the upgrade file in your Desktop. Click Upload.
11. Please wait for the router to reboot.
12. Reset the router.

SOURCE: PS3 and Netgear WGR614 V7 Router

Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.
For details on how to configure the PS3 click on the WEB link :-

Access your router via the built in configuration page, default is http://192.168.1.1. I'm assuming you're the administrator; If not, contact him/her. At the top of the window, select the "Access Restrictions" tab. The policies will be listed and can be modified.

Blocked Services: You may choose to block access to certain services. Click Add/Edit Services to modify these settings.

Website Blocking by URL: You can block access to certain websites by entering their URL.

Website Blocking by Keyword: You can block access to certain website by the keywords contained in their webpage.

I was having a similar problem, and solved it by upgrading the firmware of my router. Once I did the firmware upgrade, blocking worked fine. You can get the firmware upgrade by going to the Linksys website, clicking on Support, and then specifying your router model number.

I used DFL-800 to block certain sites using web filters. . It's working fine but Java script is not working after that. In browsers Java & Java script is enabled. What may be the reason?


Your better off not doing it that way, reset the router. Use GoogleDNS or OpenDNS to block certain websites as that way you've less hassle and any websites you want to block then add them to your hosts files

Youtube website is blocked,how can i unblock it


That's the point. You can't. We routinely block Facebook, YouTube and Messenger by keywords on our sites and it's blocked in the router.
None of those sites belong in the environment we're providing for employees (in our case) as they are not productive to work.

If I need access to those sites, I either do it on my own time at home, or plug in my Aircard.

My router works fine, but it blocks me from seeing only one (and only one) site which would not be a problem with the exception that it is my on-line banking site. How do I fix this


Hi,

I had the same problem here. 99.9% of websites work fine, but online banking failed. So here is the solution (it's also in the manual, but who reads this stuff - well, I didn't): the default MTU of 1492 in the router is too high. I set the value to 1400, and now everything is working fine. You can find the perfect MTU value for your network environment by following the instructions in the manual. I have the german version here, where it is section 3 in chapter 6 (Why can't I access some websites ...)
