Netgear Router WGR614 will not connect to internet
My original problem was that my desktop would not pickup a wireless connection. My laptop picked up the connection fine. I bought a Netgear wireless PCI adapter thinking that the desktop's adapter had broken. Installed adapter with no problems however, i still received no connection. Called netgear... troubleshooted unsuccessfully. They told me to reset my router. After I reset the router, I can no longer receive an internet connection through the router. I can only receive a connection directly from the modem to the desktop. All lights appear to be normal on the modem and router.

Re: Netgear Router WGR614 will not connect to internet
Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.
Bridge the 5100 first.
1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.
2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.
3. Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.
4. Click the PPP locations button.
5. The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.
6. Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"
7. Click Save Changes.
8. A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."
9. A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"
10. Reboot your computer and and then connect the router
11.Configure the router for PPPoE using your ISP uid/pass
12.Configure your wireless using WEP

Make sure your desktop doesn't have static IP address. Go to Network Connections, Properties of Local Area Connection, Internet Protocol > Properties. Select Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Servers Automatically. Apply the changes and restart the computer.
I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.
Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

mairelina, if all was well 2 days ago then resetting the router should fix your problem. usually a small button on the back of the router.
chelliepooh, you need to check that the router's wireless function is on. connect using the ethernet and go to the config page (usually 192.168.1.1) make sure wireless is on and security is set to wpa-psk.
