    I recently purchased a NETGEAR WGR614v7 (supposed to be wireless) router. I is only functioning as a pass through connection to Comcast. The wireless portion does not work and I don't know how to configure it based on the failed attempts via directions from the prescribed web site. Everything seems to be hooked up to the proper portals. Is there a phone number I can call to talk/walk this through? Hopeful - PattyN

Try to check your wireless card, the ethernet port is different. Inspirons have built in wireless cards/go to control panel>device manager>under network adapter check if there would be any x mark or exclamation point on it.If it happens that you see one, if x you just need to right click on it and then enable, if ! you need to reinstall the driver for it. Try to also check your Wireless zero configuration if it is started or not.

SOURCE: Computer won't recognize wirless network

I'm having a similar roblem. reset will work only for a eriod of time. (day or two at the most) Problem getting worse over last couple months. Almost seems like a power-supply issue, but the wired computer is - usually - fine, though it has had the odd connection issue (slow, web page timeouts, etc). Usually I just unlug the unit and modem from the wall for ten seconds then its fine again.

I noticed in the Log window of the SMC advanced set up that there are a lot of "Dail on Demand" events. I have no idea what this is, but it seems strange.

SOURCE: no connection to internet

First thing you need is to run the set up disk that you should have received when you purchased modem. It should run you through the steps. This should also allow you to set up your wireless connection also. It should also provide you the access code for your wireless security. Basically what this does is prevent unauthorized access to your network. Whenever you add additional computers you will need to set up each individually and enter access codes. If you don't have a disk you might need to contact manufacturer to get a replacement disk. Good luck.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

How to connect to the internet


You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

My router flashes DSL, no light on the internet, ethernet and wireless flash together, and power light on. no wired or wireless internet. solution? the afternoon it happened, a lightning storm came thru...


Hey danielbartle,

Since a lighting storm came through there is a good chance your router has been fried.

I would first direct connect via your modem to see if you get a internet connection and rule out your modem as a problem. If that doesn't work I would try another ethernet cord to rule out your cord is a problem. If you get no connection directly through your modem, I would contact your ISP with your problem.

If you get a connection I would then reset the router by unplugging and waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in.

If still nto succesful I would reset your router to defualt settings by a small button you will find on back.

If none of these work I would head to your local computer shop and pick up a new router.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a wireless router in my bedroom where the internet comes into my house. My sons got a PS3 and have hooked it up, it is now saying the ethernet cord in not connected. What is this and how do I fix...


Check that ethernet cord is plugged in correctly to router.Ethernet cord looks like a telephone cord.
must be in the lan port of router.

You need to have a ethernet cable going from the back of the ps3 to your router in 1 of the ports.

or ps3 needs a wireless adaptor to pick up the wirless signal from the router.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

Trouble Connecting


The modem only attaches to one address following boot. Turn off the modem, turn off your wireless router...turn on the modem, wait several seconds for it to boot and then attach it to to the wireless router. Start the wireless router. Attach with your computer through the ethernet to the router first and configure it to use DHCP over wireless. Then attampt connecting to the access point over wireless. If it works, then configure WEP. Be sure to use the Hex key that it generates and not the WEP key you built it from. For example, if your password is "Rosebud" use the one it creates that looks like "fcae9969e..."
