Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
NetGear WGR614v5 Test LED is continously ON, I cannot ping the IP provided below the instrument .... is it faulty ?
Earlier it was working properly.
1)If the test light is ON , it means the system is initializing or in the middle of a firmware upgrade and so the ping test will not be successful.
2)If the firmware has not been upgraded then power cycle the router for a min and check which means take the power cable out for a min and then plug it back and if the light status is still the same then go for the soft reset.
3)For soft rest get the tooth pick/paper-clip or a pin and poke it into the reset button located on the rear panel of the router and is a very small tiny circular button , wait for 30-35s and it take it out , wait for 10-15s and then repeat the step2.
4)If this does not work out go for the hard reset[but all the internet connectivity will be lost and the re-configuration has to done from the beginning]
Procedure for hard-resetting:-
a)Use the paper clip or a pin to reset the device and keep holding the reset button for at least 30-35s.
b)Then , While holding the paper clip take the power cable out from the device , wait for 10-15s and then plug the power cable back to the device while holding the paper clip.
c)Wait for another 10-15s and then release the paper clip.
d)Once we have all the lights back on to the device then take the power chord out and plug it back within 30s.
5)Check the light status if it is still the same then router is faulty and has to be replaced if not then login to http://routerlogin.net/ with username as admin and password as password and re-configure the router setting's.
