1)The Default password for wireless-g is admin and the password itself is the word password both being lower case.
2)If the default password is not working or it is locked then the password might have change the password to something else.
3)To get the default access to the router web interface we have to hard reset the device but if we reset the device to the default setting's the internet connection will be terminated and the all the setting's has to be done from the beginning.
4)Following procedure will help you in hard resetting the device:-
a)You will find the very small/tiny circular pin hole on the rear panel of the device very close to the power.
b)Use the paper clip or a pin to reset the device and keep holding the reset button for at least 30-35s.
c)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.
d)Wait for another 10-15s and then release the paper clip.
e)Once we have all the lights back on to the device then take the power chord out and plug it back within 30s.
5)Once we follow the instructions the router will be reset to the default setting's and the internet connection will be terminated.
6)Open the IE page and in the address bar type the url:-http://www.routerlogin.com and then press enter key.
7)A small window will prompt up which will ask you to type the user name and password which will be
user name:-admin

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.

Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.


As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

Having trouble accessing router with ipod touch and nintindo dsi


Hi,

In order to Unlock Netgear router you need to know the login password for router's login page and if that does not work, you can try with a default username : admin, Password : admin, still if you are unable to access the routers page then you need to reset the router by inserting a pin in the pinhole where it says reset at the back of the router...press and hold down the pin for 30 seconds and then restart the router, this will take the router back to default settings and then apply username : admin and password : admin....it should work

Netgear address : 192.168.0.1 ( Type in IE address bar to access it )

Regards,
Anup

Netgear wireless router reset


Double-click on the LAN icon on the bottom right by your clock and go to the IP that is shown for your default gateway. That will take you to your router, than just manually reset everything.

Wireless routers


Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.
