Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
Hi, I have a desktop and a laptop. When I connect my desktop computer directly to the modem, I can go online. But when I try to use my wireless router, I can't do anything. My desktop doesn't read the router. Can anyone please help me.
Oftentimes with Netgear routers, before an Internet connection can be established, you'll need to run the Wizard setup routine on the router itself. Many other manufacturers don't require this, but if you're connecting to a PPPoE connection (such as DSL) then the Netgear requires said basic setup.
On the bottom of the router itself you'll see some information. It'll tell you the default IP address (such as 192.168.0.1) and a basic username and password (the default for most Netgear routers is admin for the username and password for the password). Plug your computer into one of the four switch ports on the router (not the uplink/Internet port) and type in the IP address of the router (again, such as 192.168.0.1) into your Web Browser (such as Internet Explorer). If it asks for a username/password then punch in the info given on the bottom of the router. At that point you should be able to answer the basic questions to get you online.
There is a chance that your modem and your router have the same IP address; in that case, you'll need to manually change the IP address on the router.
If by chance you can't get into the router via the information provided on the bottom of the device, take a paper clip and, with the router powered up, hold in the reset button for 30 full seconds. This will reset the device to its default factory settings.
