Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
First you connect the att modem to the back of the router. The RJ45 (Wider than a phone connector) connects from the modem out to the port on the router that is spaced away from the others.
Second you have to connect a cable from your laptop or computer to one of the other ports on the router. This is only for setup and won't be required after that.
Once connections have been made and router and modem are rebooted, open a browser (IE or Mozilla) and let it time out. then in the address bar typ 192.168.1.1. You should then see a pop up box asking for password and user name. The default user is "admin" without the quotes, and the pass is password .
This will now open the setup boxes. Change the Wireless settings, click Wireless Settings under Setup on the left menu bar.
Under Wireless Network, (make a note of these settings, you need these values to configure your wireless clients)
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.
Click on either WEP or WPA (Preferred) security. A box will open for a passphrase. REMEMBER what you put here. this is your security key! If you pick WEP you will need to write down the 10 digit key.
Apply the changes
Now you can close the router setup and disconnect the computer from the router. You should now see a box on the systray that says new wireless networks available. Click it and you should see whatever you named your network. Click it, and then the connect button on the bottom. It will then say identifying network, and eventually will aske for the key. This is the numbers or pasphrase if WPA.
You are then conncted to the router and it should be connected to the internet., If not just ask and I will go through that setup for you.
