Unable to factory reset - all port lights stay on with just power cable plugged in

My netgear wireles router WGR614v6 router is unable to be reset by the factory reset button on the back of the router. I've tried several times. Only the power cable is on now, but all port lights stay on. Is it fried? In the last two weeks I can only get a web site to stay on for about 45 seconds and loading about 60-70% with extremely slow connections. Noticed router was hot yesterday. Good with tech stuff but can't get this router to reset at all. Help.

All port lights showing on a router indicate a bad control board in the router. I'd say it's toast.

You can reset your Netgear WGR614v6 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 WGR614v6 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.

Need password to my netgear router n 300


what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

I am installing a new wireless Lexmark printer and need to enter the security key for my Netgear wireless router WGR614v6. I do not have the manual and need to find this WPA key


You have to get in the web interface of the router to find the key. If you dont remember , the only other suggestion is to reset the router. This would bring it back to factory defaults . Once this is done, you have to set it up from start again .

On most model Netgear wireless routers there is a reset button on the back of the router which reset the router back to the default factory settings. The location of this button is printed on the label.

Power off the router, press and hold the reset button (you need a sharp pen), power on the router, wait several seconds and release the reset button. You can now configure the wireless router again using the default admin login.

Resteing my router


Hi,
You can do this manually by putting a paper clip or somethingsharp into the little reset hole in the back and holding for 15seconds, then waiting for all the lights to stop flashing and remain on.
Oryou can open your internet browser and type 192.168.2.1 (if that iswrong for your router try 192.168.0.1) and if it asks you for ausername and password, just try admin and password (or just google yourrouter model followed by 'default username and password').
Therewill be a menu listing for rebooting or restoring factory settings,then you enable that and wait for the process to complete. This cantake up to 30 seconds after it says 100% so be patient, it will tellyou when you can connect to the internet.

Good luck!

IF the router stop working the first thing that you can do is to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds while the power is ON then after that unplug the power for 5 seconds and then Run the Installation for the router to reconfigure it back but if you don't have the CD you can contact Netgear support for that so they can walk you through with the process....

Netgear wgr614v6 factory settings


If this is on the router itself, cycle the power first. If still no good, then clear the router's configuration to factory defaults. This will set the routers ip address to 192.168.1.1. You should have the manual and this will be on page 7-7 if not check out the link below
