Problem in reconfiguring WGR614 v5 after reset

I have problem connecting thru Netgear WGR614 v5. As I had some problem, I had to press the RESET button back of the router and trying to reconfigure it. I gave all new DSL authentication and rest are set to default configuration. I setup the profile also on the computer and baloon shows 'excellent'. However, it's not getting connected to internet.

I am sure modem (2WIRE provided by SBC DSL) alright. Bze, I am able to connect thru wire.

Can some one suggest on this?

You should configure the 2wire to a bridged modem for the autentication to work on Netgear.check with your ISP for configuring your 2wire to bridged modem

You'll need to reset the router then, unless someone else knows it, or it's printed on the router somewhere. There's a small reset button on the back, hold it in for 30 secs, you may need a pencil or something. Then you have to set up the router again. At least it's good practice and you won't forget it again in a hurry ;-) hopefully anyway.

When you reset the router, it comes back to factory default settings. Now you will need to reconfigure the router for the Internet connection.
If you have the CD then try to run the CD.
Or you can reconfigure the router without the CD also.

Network Key for netgear wgr614

Hi, taffy_man, the network key is something you configure yourself. If you dont know it you have to RESET the router to the factory defaults.
Take a paper clip, or something sharp, and insert it into the little reset hole in the back of the router, and hold for 15 seconds or so, that'll reset the router. Wait for all the lights to stop flashing and remain on, then try to connect to the internet.
Or you could type into your internet address bar and it'll ask you for the username and password, the defaults are admin and password..
If that doesnt work do the same thing but first disconnect the power cable. Then while pressing the reset button THEN connect the power cable again but keep the reset button for 10 secons and then go to the or ( and do what I wrote above. Then you will have to reconfigure your settings. I hope this helps.

Trouble reconfiguring WGR614 v5 after reset

Dear Koteshst

Is it the router that's showing 'Limitted and no connectivity' or the PC trying to connect to the router? If it's the latter make sure that the router is configured to assign IP addresses via DHCP and that your WEP/WPA keys match on both sides. If it's the former check your authentication info for SBC.

Let me know.
