We ll start with the physical connections.
1.take ethernet cable n connect one end of the cable to the modem and the other end to the isolated port on the router(internet port) and then connect the computer and your router with other cable(any lan port).refer the chart on the router to distinguish the internet and lan port.
2.check the light status on the modem and router.
router lite status-power,alphabet i lite,wireless lite(lollipop lite) and the number light lit up(depends on the port eg port no:1 connected number 1 light lit up).
3.check the ip address and default gateway address.
steps:In windows(xp,2000 etc),click on start->click on run->in the search tab type cmd->dos prompt window opens,type ipconfig and u ll get ip address and default gateway address(192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1).note it
In vista,start->in the search tab type cmd->dos prompt window type ipconfig->u ll get the address as specified earlier.
4.open the browser,type the default gateway address in the address bar and press enter.The login window ll ask for username and password. username-admin
password-password.
5.You ll enter the netgear smart wizard page.Run the setup wizard at the left side (blue screen).select yes and detect the type of connection.
6.If it is a cable modem-dynamic ip detected and click next.check whether the dns address is given automatically from isp and click apply.Then click on basic settings under setup menu and in that window in the router mac address select "use computer mac address "option and click on apply.Now click on router status under maintenance menu and check the ip address in internet port(it should not be 0.0.0.0) and in lan port(eg 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.0.2).
7.If its a dsl modem-the type of connection ll be detected as pppoe.click next.configure your router with the username and password provided by the isp and click on apply.The router ll save the settings and then check the internet port and lan port
address as given in the previous step.
8.Now we have to configure the router for wireless settings(both modems same configuration).
*click wireless settings under set up menu.
*In that page enter
name(ssid):netgear1
region:us
channel:11
mode:g and b.
In security options select wep and key1 give your telephone number so that you wont forget the password.CLICK APPLY.we have secured the n/w.
9.scan and connect to the network.
For windows vista-start->connect to->select the network name(netgear2)and click connect->it ll ask for password,enter it(telephone no).you ll successfully connected.Now disconnect the cable and try going online wirelessly.
For xp-start->control panel->network connections->right click on wireless network connection->select the network and configure.
10.you ll be able to go online wirelessly if there is any problem delete the preferred networks.
I have given you all the steps with examples to help you configure the router.hope you ll fix the issue and further assisstance im ready to help u but pls give details about your operating system,type of modem and no of computers so that it ll easy for me to troubleshoot.

SOURCE: Problem with netgear wgr614 v6 daisy chain

I am assuming the Verison was setup and working before this started, if not let me know.

Do you know the address and subnet mask for the lan side of the Verison Actiontec router? assumed like address 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 This means all addresses 192.168.0.? belong to the verison router's subnet.

Assuming the Netgear router is being daisy chained using a lan port from the Verison Router to the WAN port of the Netgear, the WAN side of the Netgear router needs to be either dynamically addressed or statically addressed in the 192.168.0.? uniquely outside the DHCP range for the Verison router.

The LAN side of the Netgear Router must not be addressed the same as the LAN side of the Verison router in this configuration.

There is another potential configuration where lan ports of both routers are connected. however in that configuration there are additional considerations. Please let ne know which connection you are attempting between the two routers.

There is some additional informatin you can gather

Assuning you have windows XP for the operating system on your computers hook a computer wired if possible to the LAN side of each router and issue the following commands

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt in the new window that opens type the following command and press enter

ipconfig

write down th IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway for each adapter

Then issue the following command once for each default gateway not = 0.0.0.0 where {...} is replaced in its entirety with the default gateway.

pring {default gateway address no {}}

the expected responses will be either 4 timeouts or 4 lines with elapsed times. Timeout is failure -- elapsed times means it was connected.

For each router I need to know the default gateway and the subnet mask for the successful pair. Plese reply ina comment to this problem and additional steps will be forthcomming.

Hi supermosang .

Have you check the new firmaware update for your Netgear? ..pls do so first before proceeding to the next step provided below.

Next approach is to unistall and reinstall you 'reciever' to avoid any conflicts and isolate the issue. If that step is still a no go we might as well reset your netgear router to its factory settings and then lets start from there. It should work as your router has fanstastic features that supports 26bit encryption.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: router setup

Verify the physical connection. From the modem, it should be connected to the router's Internet port, then your computer must be connected to port 1 on the back of the router. Then do a power cycle, then try to run the setup CD. If it doesn't work, you need to manually configure the router. You may need assistance from Netgear tech support. Call their toll free number

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .


To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

Netgear WGR614 v6; where is the hard reset button,procedure to reset


Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. )
Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  1. Release the button.
  2. Wait for the router to reboot.
  3. Log in with the default password.
If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  1. Unplug the router's power.
  2. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  3. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.
Log in with the default password

Netgear wgr614 v6 As Bridge for XBOX


I'll take a stab at this. It's a bit difficult because I don't know what your level of expertise is. You're actually using the Netgear wireless ROUTER not a bridge. Your ISP can use a couple of methods to give you service. DSL companies like Verizon probably use PPPoE which require you to login and provide a password and VZ is notorious for closing down port 25.

O.K. Did I mention I don't like them very much? Anyway, I'm going to give you a link to Netgear's excellent web site for configuring a router and the XBOX connection. This is the whole list of v6 compatible instructions. Note the very bottom link to use Netgear routers with XBOX.

http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v6.asp

Note under the Troubleshooting topic that there is a configuration and two setup files, depending on what you're connecting to, and some tips on what to do if it doesn't work.

It's not as bad as it looks.
