Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
I transferred my netgear from my own laptop with my own dsl connection straight from the wall, no modem, to my mom's desktop that also has a different login dsl, with a modem. I used this router on this computer before which is what puzzles me.
I plugged it in. My laptop recognized the router, but there was no internet connection. I went to the netgear set up and changed the login information. Still did not work. Then after tinkering some more I decided to do a hard reset. Now, the wireless light is out and I cannot connect to the set up page again. I've hooked up everything the correct way. The wireless light blinks when I do a hard reset and the check light is on, but once that light goes off, the wireless light does too. Please help..
This sounds like a common conflict fault.
There are a few things you can do to help reliability
You should first make sure that the modem and router are individually
set up correctly.
Read the guide for router and modem first and if any of it may apply to you then try and do it.
Try the following procedure and write down anything you change so that if you need to go back you know what was changed.
Connect ONLY the MODEM to a pc by wire and nothing else
Go to the start menu and select RUN
In the box type "cmd"
Now in the black screen that has come up type "ipconfig /all"
Take note of the numbers that are in 4 groups e.g. 192.168.1.1
Also take note of the name in front of those numbers !
Write down any numbers where it says DNS too as they may be useful (you only need the ones with numbers not the ones with letters)
Now do the same thing with your modem
If that too has the same IP as your router in "default gateway" then you need to fix that issue as that is probably a part of your problems.
The fix for router modem conflict is to set the router to use a different IP range.
To do this only have the router connected (by wire) and open an internet explorer page (it will fail but that's ok)
In the address bar type the number you got for default gateway above for the router e.g. 192.168.1.1 and press ENTER
When it asks for the user name, give it the one you gave it when you set the router up or the default one from your manual
Also give it the password you gave it when you set it up or once again the default one from the manual.
You now need to look for a box that has the number you just used to get into the router.
It may just say IP address or Starting IP or something similar
That is the number you should change. I usually change the third block e.g. 192.168.2.1 as opposed to 192.168.1.1
You should also have some DNS numbers from the checks further up with the MODEM
You should find the DNS boxes and place those numbers in there. This will allow your computer quicker access to finding things on the internet
Now look for the save settings button and do so.
Reconnect the modem and router. The cable from the modem should go to the YELLOW socket on the router.
Power up the modem and WAIT until all the correct lights are on.
Then do the same with the router.
Now power up a pc and check that you can surf without problems
If not then the problem may lay elsewhere. Go back and re-check.
That should help you out

There is a posibility that the router is bad. have you tried pressing the reset button for 30 seconds while its on and then plug it back it.
