Question about NetGear MR314 (MR314NA) Wireless Router

Wireless access point connecting to router...

I am trying to establish a wireless connection between a Netgear MR314 and a D-Link DIR615. Eventually an Xbox will be have an ethernet connection to the Netgear which will communicate with the D-Link. The D-Link is acting as the primary router for my home network and also has the internet connection. The D-Link's status page shows the MAC address for the the Netgear, but does not connect. I tried to ping the Netgear and got a request timed out.

Is there any hope to use Netgear this way?

    The Netgear MR314 can only work as a wired access point, not a wireless access point. Thanks for the information.

The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask like 255.255.255.0. That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199. If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 are available. You need to assign one of those like 192.168.0.2 to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like 192.168.0.20. You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.


Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.

    PS Wireless communication occurs on 4 possible bands A,B,G,N. Your wireless only supports B -- assure the xbox wireless also can operate on the B band.

    Secondly you may want to activate wireless security in the netgear -- this should still function in this configuration your choices are probably WEP or WPA make sure the wireless devices all support the choice you make for the router -- this is an either or and not both for the entire wireless network including any laptops or other devices along with the xbox.

I have Netgear N router and having problems trying to establish phone connection with my Mitel 5312 ip phone. I have fowarded all the ports, disabled router firewall powercycle everthing a thousand times...


The phone is intended to be connected to a Mitel PBX telephone system. If you're using the phone at home, you must set the phone in Teleworker mode and use the IP address of the teleworker server. This will allow your phone to tunnel into the phone system.

OR the phone must be set up in SIP mode. Press and hold the 6 key while booting the phone. You will also need to set it up and tell it where the SIP server is located (IP addresses).

If you don't have this information, you should contact your vendor or system admin for further assistance.

If you are trying to use the phone without the above servers, I have bad news - it won't work.

Check with Netgear for the IP address which allows you to connect with the routers settings through your computer. For Linksys, it is 192.168.1.1

I do not get a login prompt when I enter the address of the netgear mr314 in the address bar of mr browser. Is it using a different port?


I assume you're trying to access the unit with something like http://192.168.1.1 or whatever the default address is. And what happens then? A page-not-found error? Can't connect? The most likely causes for the problem are
  • The wireless adapter (or Ethernet adapter, if you're using that) on your computer is not set to obtain an automatic IP address and is not on the same IP network as the router
  • The router's IP address has been changed from what you are expecting
  • If you can ping the router but not connect to its web interface, your browser may be configured to use a proxy; that should be turned off when connecting directly to the router.

Problem connecting wireless to a Netgear MR314


Login to router and change the wireless channel on which the router is transmitting wireles signals.

Pretty old router that you have. Ugrade your router and stay tension free with the newer routers as they work fine and have low downtime.
