Cannot login into my netgear dg834gb v2 for remote management


Here is a site for your new firmware version:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/262/~/dg834(v1-%26-v2),-dg834g-(v1-%26-v2)-firmware-version-2.10.22

Here is a site for your product:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2324

Maybe you have to reset it to factory settings.
There is a button next to the power inlet prees it with a pen.
Here is how you acces the router again:


  • IP address: 192.168.0.1 type this in your browser
  • Username: admin
  • Password: password (Sky-branded units have a default password of sky)
  • Function set to Router + Modem
To access the Setup Wizard installation and configuration program on your router:
  1. Connect your router to a computer by plugging one end of an Ethernet Cable into any of the four LAN ports on the back of your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. To install your router, simply click on the "Setup Wizard" link at the top of the left-hand navigation menu once you are logged into your router.
A video walk-through of installing and configuring your router using the Smart Wizard is available at http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12873.

Hope this was helpfull.

Can't access 192.168.1.1


Most of the NETGEAR devices, except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches, have the following default username and password:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
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. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. 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.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
Or you will need to update the firmware to rest the router.

Twice after using Google's gmail video chat with our RP614, our internet access stopped. I had to recycle the power on the RP614 each time. Is this a known issue?


I can't think of a connection between the two events, esp if it happened only twice. I own a similar Netgear router (wi-fi tho and not DSL), and find it very reliable.

Netgear Rp614 router is not supported on my windows vista 64 bit os. How can I get it to work?


Hi, follow the steps below to reset and reconfigure your RP614:

RESET:

At the back of the router you will find a small tiny hole (which says restore to factory default settings). Press the button with the help of a paper clip and hold it down for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, please release the button and power off the router for 5 seconds then power the router back.

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

RECONFIGURE:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

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


Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...

Good luck, and have a great day...

I have a used router its a rp614 i dont have anything else like a cd to install it to my computer or whatever i might need


Guess what? You don't need a CD to "install" software, it's already on the router.

Since I don't know what version you have (v1-v4) you'll have to find it on the bottom of the router and then link to the proper one.
http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1293

It's pretty easy, just follow the tab "how to set up a router if I don't know the password". Of course, before you go to all that trouble, try plugging a wired connection into it, and go to 192.168.1.1 or whatever the gateway shows and use "admin" and "password" or "1234" for your username and password.

If none of these work, THEN one of the holes in the back is the reset button (should be a round hole between the last ethernet port and the power supply jack). You have to hold it in for 10 seconds until it blinks and then release it. You may have to power cycle the router as noted in the reset instructions.

Need to change netgear router rp614 from dsl to cable


Hello

First connect one of the ethernet ports (LAN) to your computer.

In windows to this:

XP: Start -> Run -> write CMD and press ok-> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).
Vista: click windowsmenu icon-> write CMD in search field and press enter -> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).

Open a webbrowser and clear det adress field, enter the adress (with the dots and no www.) you wrote down from default gateway and press enter.
If you get promted for a username and password the default is: username: admin password: password (you can find it on the side of the netgaer box under deafult accsess.
If you cant get in try to do a "hard reset" (push the reset button for 30 sec with a pen).

You are now in the web user interface for you netgear.

On your lefthand side, you should have a blue menu, click on the first option on the top and run the setup wizard, dont change anything (dont choose that your connection needs a password to connect) just use the default settings. Remember to press save on the botom.

You should now be ready to use your netgear router.

If this guide didnt fix your problem, i need more details to help you.
Check with your new service provider if they require a username and password to connect (PPPoE).

The light of internet is orange,not yellow.


The router should have reset button on the back. This will reset it to factory defaults. If you have an ISP that gives you internet without a username and password like rogers then you should be good to go. If your ISP is like Bell then you will need to get into the website of the router and configure it.

LAN ports not working


make sure that the local area connection in the computer is enabled and that the drivers of the ethernet adapter are working properly.

try to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds then if the problem still persist then that means the router should be replaced already.
