Netgears are NOTORIOUS for this. If a hard reset didn't fix it, the one where you hold the red button down for like 30 seconds then it is gone. I have replaced SO MANY of these. The first thing that went on them was the wireless and they did have tons of complaints on this at one time as well.
Get a Linksys rounter, I have hardly EVER had any problems with them and they are now owned by Cisco, even better.

This can result after a power failure. Unplug it for 30 minutes or more and plug back in. If it still stays amber, it may be damaged a.k.a. "bricked"

My Netgear WPN824 wireless router stopped working. With the exception of the internet LED (which doesn't come on at all), all of the lights are blue and doing sort of a slow, pulsating blink. No m


The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.

We have been using the Netgear router WPN824 for about 3 years and all of a sudden it stopped working. No flashing strobe lights - nothing. any suggestions?


Hello,

Will it even power on at all ? If there are no lights at all make sure its plugged in securely. Maybe even try a different power outlet to see if the one you are using has not gone bad. If that still doesn't help then there is a chance that your router has failed. Being 3 years old it is possible. A failure can be from a power surge, storm, manufacture defect etc. In which case you will have to replace it. Sorry for the bad news.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,
Daniel

Netgear wireless router wireless light won't light


Once \you reset your router, the router must be set up again in orser to use it wirelessly. Connect with CAT-5 cable router to computer, go to http://192.168.1.1 log in to router with name = admin and password left blank. Go into the Wireless section, set your SSID (Network Name) and whatever security you want to use. Write it down, do not forget, you should be back on line.

Netgear WGR614 Power light goes off.


I understad that you need to powercycle the router for it to work. In this case, please note that this indicates failure with the router hardware. The only thing you can do now is upgrade the firmware on the router. You may check for firmware updates by visiting the site below:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1296

After uploading the firmware on the router, reset the router and reconfigure it.

If the issue persists ten the best bet for the router is to either get it replaced or trash it.

Light Status on Netgear WGR614


Access router. What does it say? did you set up the wireless network yourself? Is the cable modem working properly? Rebooted it? Is there a problem with the internet provider?

NEtgear RP614 cannot connect after a electricity shortage in our home :(


How is it not working? You get limited or no connectivity or it isn't functioning at all. Firstly, let's do a power cycle. Push the reset button for 5 seconds, unplug for 45 seconds, and reset 5 seconds, and unplug for 45 seconds. If that doesn't work try a hard reset. Alright, it's time to do a hard reset, this will rest all your passwords, Take a Pen or a pin, push the pin the the reset hole for 45 seconds, Uplug the modem for 1 minute, reset hole for 30 seconds, unplug for 30 seconds, and it should be hard resetted also power cycle.
