Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

No connection trough 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.

Hi Thumbsucker,

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.

    Hi Thumbsucker,

    Please let me know what version of Windows you're running as well as the model number of the router. We can proceed from there.

Hi,

we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

Hi Vivian,

Chweck you cables and where they are conencted.

You will need to make sure that the Comcast modem is providing internet, you can do this by connecting your laptop to it using ethernet directly if it connects to the internet, that will be a good thing.

From your comcast Modem, the ethernet Cable should go to the linksys where it says "WAN". this should give you an internet connection and make your comcast modem communicate with your linksys Router.

Make sure that there is not direct connection between your desktop and modem ( USB ). If there is any USB connection from the modem to the computer then it will go on linee but the router will not be on line.
Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
