  1. Disable the Wireless Adapter on your computer.
  2. Hold the "Reset" button on the pack of the WGR614 for 20 seconds(might need to use a paper clip/small pen)
  3. Connect an ethernet cable from one of the numbered ports on the Netgear and connect it to your PC
  4. Click on "Start", "Control Panel", "Network and Internet", "Network Connections" (or on Vista, "Network and Sharing Center", then "Manage Network Connection")
  5. Double-click on the "Local Area Connection"
  6. Click on the "Support" tab (or "Details" on Vista)
  7. Make sure an IP address and Gateway are listed. With netgear it should be 192.168.1.1 or some models are 192.168.0.1 for Gateway. If you get 169.x.x the network cable is probably faulty.
  8. Open web browser
  9. Type in the address of the default gateway(probably http://192.168.1.1) (Default user: admin, default pass: password)
You can re-enable the wireless adapter once you've configured the router. Make sure to pick a Unique SSID. (Unless you already are familiar with where to locate the saved wireless profiles on your computer so you can delete the old profile when the settings do not match)

My computer has internet connection through the port on the back, but not through the router for wireless networking. All the connections from the modem to the router and further to the computer are...


So, just to confirm:
PC via ethernet has internet connection OK?
The router IP is 192.168.1.1
The PC ethernet IP is 192.168.1.n (n is not 1)
If you unplug the ethernet cable, you no longer have a connection.

If these are correct, did you previously have wireless internet working? If so, just reboot the router (unplug its power).

If not, you'll need to check the wireless settings in the router with those of your wireless network card, making sure you are using matching security settings (WPA-PSK, AES256, matching 'key').

To access the router, browse to http://192.168.1.1 (ensure your ethernet is plugged in). If you haven't changed from the default login details, you'll find them in the router manual.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".
