Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
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.

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.
