Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

A random guy came in and setup a home network for us using a Netgear Wireless router (WGR614v6). We have a PC on main level, an iMac and laptop in the basement that connect wirelessly and without any trouble. The PC on the second level connects directly to the router and the router connects to the cable modem. Recently the hard drive on that PC died and was replaced. Now the PC doesn't recognize the router. I am not good with networking... please help!

it is a good idea to have your pc plugged into the router during setup. with a wireless connection, you may loose your connection during setup since many routers need to "reboot" after changes are made. after the initial setup, making minor changes via wifi are acceptable.

I can not connect to my netgear wgr614v6 with my hp netbook. I can connect with my other laptop and the netbook has been connected before. It keeps saying "acquiring Address"


If you're trying to connect wirelessly, and it says "acquiring address" and never connects, it's most likely because your wireless network has an encryption key enabled, and the encryption key on your laptop/netbook doesn't match. You should disconnect from your home wireless network, and then try to re-connect to it. Verify that you're using the correct wireless key to connect. If that still doesn't work, you should reset your router to factory defaults so that there's no wireless key required to connect - and then try again. If you want to put the wireless key back, you can run the CD or connect to the router using the web interface and configure it again.

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.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
