Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.

Heres the problem, I have a cable modem and when I connect it to the PC I have at home directly through the Ethernet cable the desktop runs fine. The Desktop is a Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop with built in Intel PROSet/Wireless and that works fine everywhere else. When I plug the Ethernet cable into the Wireless Router it reads the internet/wireless as working fine. If I then plug another Ethernet cable THROUGH the Wireless Router into the Desktop the desktop reads the connection as Limited or No Connectivity. My Laptop then sees the Wireless and says it has Excellent service (seeing as I am seated right next to the Wireless Router). When I try to get a website open through my Web browser (Wyzo), it says 'Server not found'. Help Please.

Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

Cannot connect to internet using wgr614 router. connection is good without router. with router connected, internet lite blinks.

To use a router with a DSL modem or cable modem, you need to connect the modem to the router at the WAN port and then connect the PC to one of the router ports. If the cable you have been using between the modem and PC is lableled as a cross-over cable, it is the wrong type of cable for the router connection. Use a straight through cable to connect the modem to the router.

If you do not have a manual for the router, here is a link to the router manual online:

The cross-over cable could be the problem (typically yellow cable).

I am given a set up error while trying to configure netgear WGR614. Below is the message The router is setup with the static IP values read from the computer. However, there is no Internet connection with...

You need to contact your Internet Service Provider to obtain the setup configuration for the cable or DSL modem. A LAN cable is then connected from the modem to the Internet LAN port on the wireless router.
Normally you do not set a static IP address on the router, and the wireless card should be set to obtain an IP address automatically.
If you still have problems, give me details of what configuration steps you have carried out on the router and the wireless card together with the error messages.

Cant connect with netgear wgr614

I suppose you pluged the cable from the Modem to the WAN port on the Router. If you are using wireless, try to assign IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway instead of DHCP(Automatic configuration).This is done by selecting the WLAN and choosing Properties - TCP/IP. If you have a Proxy Server then enter the DNS server addresses ok. Good luck
