Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Only powerlight on

I had this thing running smooth and then I rearranged my room and hooked it back up and now only the power light will come on. Nothing else. Yet when I turn the computer off with it hooked up all the correct lights come on. It's saying there is no cable connected to the computer when I hook it up. All the cables are fine.

I am running an emachines T6410 with AT&T Broadband internet.

Re: Only powerlight on

How can you be so sure that the cables aren't bad?

Try replacing the cables anyway. Also make sure that you set you DISABLE/ENABLE your network adapter in your computer.

If worse comes to worse... Hit the RESET button on the router.

But it really does sound like a bad cable to me...

Continue to post what happens as you try the solutions and let me know.

Don't just rate me poorly. Keep me updated. I don't like taking these kinds of risks on my rating... Thanks.

Watching for an update,

Re: Only powerlight on

If you haven't already, try a different network cable and a different port on the router. Have you tried hooking another PC, laptop, or console up to it?

This may be a problem with your network card, but admittedly it would be new to me.

My linksys WRT300N router is Not working. The lights are all solid and it wont reset. Please help

Hi, we can hard reset the router for about a minute, powerlight should be blinking the moment we reset the router, if case still all lights are lit but powerlight is solid. We can do these steps:

> Connect computer to router
> Open control panel - network connections - right click local are connection
> Click status and go to support

> Check for IP address, if we have IP: 192.168.1.x IP address on the computer
> Please open command prompt
- (for WinXP) go to start and click run, type cmd
- (for win7 and winVISTA) click start and type on start search cmd
> On the black screen, there is a blinking cursor type ping(space)
> If we are getting Request timed out - that means router is defective
- if we are getting Reply from responses... then there is a need to upgrade the router...

You said that the power light is blinking. The chances are your router is not workikng more.
Try to reset the router. P{ress the reset button on the router.
Press it and hold it down for 30 seconds.
Release the button and wait for 1 minute. See if the powerlight becomes solid. If the power light is still bliking then reset the router again.
Once the power light is solid on the router then try to reconfigure the router from the beginning.

Power light is blinking, and can only access internet if i plug laptop directly to modem.

Blinking powerlight is a sign of bad router. You can try to reset the router for which you need to hold the reset button for 30 secs. Release it and than take the powercable off from the router and plug it back in. Check if the light is stable, else you need to replace it.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Netgear WNR834Bv2 failed - powerlight is off, but all other lights are on solidly incl the router and wireless lights (the latter solid, not blinking) and all four ethernet port lights, despite nothing...

If you haven't tried using the reset button, should be an explanation how to use it on the router in the manual, try that.
Also, try a replacement power supply to the router, if you can get hold of one. As this maybe faulty.
However, likely faulty router, maybe due to power surge, due to lightning/bad weather.

Power light and internet light flash every few seconds no internet access..


If the powerlight and the internet light is flashing then this is problem with the router or might be with the Power supply, If ur Model no: DG834Gv4 then call netgear to get the replacement for Powersupply(if ur product is under warranty) or else get the replacement of the router
-- but if it is not under warranty
-- then try with different power supply,
-- and if that won't help you
-- go for a new router.
If ur issue will resolve rate this...

What does it mean when there is a solid red Power light on the ATT 2wire DSL wireless router?

it means 2 things. 1st it could be the adapter because theres still power to it and 2nd is the 2wire router is already defective. if its possible for you to bring the 2wire with the adapter to any computer store or to att store and have them plug a new adapter on it . or if you have available 5volts adapter you can try to check if power will be solid green using diff adapter definitely its the adapter but if you have tried it but power will flash green or red the modem is dead. powerlight of any router should stay solid green no matter what happen.
have it checked carefully so you dont need to spend $82 for the 2wire, adapter is $10 only..

No power?

1. Check the power connection at the router end.
2. Verify there are no frays, kinks, bends in the cable.
3. Use a multimeter/light tester to verify connectivity through the cable.
4. Verify the power switch on the router is on and not broken.
5. replace the power cable.
6. replace the router.

Reset problem, router won't start again

If the powerlight flashes the entire time.. even after a hardreset, your router is probably only good for a brick....

Connection Not Consistent

You shouldn't have to run the setup wizard to reconnect. It sounds like you just haven't configured it to auto-connect to that wireless connection. Right click on My Network Places and select Properties. Right click on your Wireless LAN connection, and tell it to connect. You should be able to go through those settings and tell it to auto-connect to your router as well.
