Question about Computers & Internet

I use remote desktop, winxp profess. Every so often the router hangs up eliminating remote access until the netgear MR814 router is rebooted. Is there any way I can reboot this wireless router remotely? If not, what router would you suggest that I can have it automatically reset at a pre -selected time each day? millergh@yahoo.com Thanks for your help.

It is not uncommon for routers of any type that I've tried to ' glitch ' or ' hang '. The timer mentioned above may help a bit but what is to stop the router from ' hanging ' inbetween the timer settings? I agree with the getting the timer as long as it doesn't cost to much, but I would also add that getting the newest firmware update for router may and probably will help a lttle at least. Netgear is similar to Linksys in style and manufacturing, in fact I've heard that Netgear routers are often made by Linksys ( walmart deal I hear ). The last time I visited the Netgear site it offered little to boost my confidence in the routers but it did offer firmware updates in a minor sense of the word ' update '.
I also noticed that many factors affecting Netgear routers were addressed on the Linksys website, but please be careful of mentioning Netgear on the Linksys website as they sometimes get a little upset by the notion of an unwanted stepchild. I would never and I mean never suggest updating a Netgear router using a Linksys firmware update.

I would go to your local radio shack or electronic dealership and buy an automatic timer, and plug your router into that. have set to shut off then turn on at certain times. it will work for just fine. you can get them at kmart or pretty much anywhere. if you not sure about the device im writing about just tell someone in the store to get you a timer that has 110 v plug and explain what you need it for . hope you find one, good luck

How do i hard reset my Netgear MR814 router so I can wipe the password and login I forgot the password


Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

See the following articles for more information:

What is the channel on the router setup on a netgear MR814


Hi matty,
Are you asking what radio frequency the Netgear MR814 operates in?
That would be the 802.11b standard 2.4GHz.  It is the same as some cordless phones which operate in 2.4GHz so beware interference.  You may want to opt for a 5GHz 802.11g router or a cordless phone that operates in the 5GHz range.

NETGEAR MR814 WIRELESS ROUTER


In your setup click the 'Erase' button, this will reset it to factory settings.
If you forgot the password or IP and can't do this, there is a reset button on the back of the unit. Hold it in for about 10 seconds until the power light blinks on. Then release the button and allow the router to reboot. This information is in your manual. If you've lost your manual, click here.
