If your computer is online when it is connected to the modem using an ethernet cable, you can disconnected the pc from the modem. Use an ethernet cable to connect your modem to the ethernet port of your NETGEAR ROUTER. Turn on power of the net gear router. Connect your pc to the NETGEAR. Right click the network connection icon(at the buttom right of your screen) then click STATUS then click details. You should get an ip of 192.168.x.x. Open your browser, type on the address field http://www.routerlogin.net

USERNAME:admin
Password:password

when you are in the router page, click on set up wizard. it should configure the router and give you internet connection after the wizard completes

How to Set Up a Netgear WGR614 V5 Wireless Router
Netgear routers--like all wireless routers--give you the opportunity to access the Internet with your laptop or wireless-adapted computer from virtually anywhere in your house within range of the router's WiFi signal. Though slightly different in appearance from other router models by Netgear, the WGR614 V5 acts similar in its setup process as others such as the WGT624 or WNR1000 series routers.
Things You'll Need:
Netgear WGR615 V5 routerNetgear resource CDEthernet wireBlue network wireModemComputer
1 Prepare to install the Netgear router. Log off and shut down your computer system. Turn your Internet modem off and/or disconnect its power supply from the electrical outlet. Take out the contents of the Netgear router box and verify that all the essentials are present: the resource CD, the yellow wire and the router itself.
2 Connect the Internet modem to the Netgear WGR614 v5 router. Locate the yellow Ethernet wire running from one end of the Internet modem to the computer's Ethernet port. Unhook the computer-end of the Ethernet wire and insert this end into the port on the router labeled "Internet." After inserting, confirm that the wire runs from the modem to the router.
3 Connect the Netgear router to the computer. Grab the blue cable supplied with the router. Securely insert one end of the blue cable into one of the four "LAN" ports on the router (the "LAN" ports are labeled with numbers from 1 to 4). Insert the other end of the blue wire into your computer's Ethernet port.
4 Start your network devices. Turn on or connect your Internet modem to an electrical outlet. Wait for at least two minutes to allow the modem to fully boot. Plug the Netgear router into the wall or electrical outlet as well, and wait one to two minutes. Turn on your computer.
5 Look at the Netgear router to verify that all lights are on. The "power," "Internet" and "wireless" icon symbols on the front of the router should be solidly lit. One of the four "LAN" ports should also be lit with either a green or amber color.
6 Insert the resource CD that came with your Netgear router to launch the "welcome" screen. Select "Router Setup" from the menu to begin the "Smart Wizard" setup application. Read and follow the setup steps, including naming your SSID (secure set identifier) or "network name" and setting a level of wireless security. Finish the setup process, ending with the registration of your Netgear router.
7 Verify that your Netgear router has been set up correctly. Open an Internet browser from both the computer that is connected to the router and on a computer that has a wireless card or adapter. Surf to your favorite Internet sites to verify your connection is working. Open your "network connections" utility on your operating system and make sure it shows that you're connected to your own wireless network.

I have tried every possible way to rest my netgear wgr614v5 router and the log in page will not come up. Is there any other way I can get my router to send out signals so it can be picked up bu other...


The best way to do it, though you may have tried it already, is to use a pen/pencil and push the reset button in for 5-10 seconds.

This will usually reset it to the factory default settings and reset any password protection on its wireless.

If not, it's a problem with the other computers detecting the signal, be it not in range or something else.

We transferred to a new home and a new dsl account. I've reset my netgear wgr614v5 to its default settings and reconfigured it to access but now it only works for pc's that are wired into the ports....


When you reset the router the default setting for encryption is probably off. Hopefully you had encryption on in the old home - but now the wireless computers are still trying to connect using the key/encryption.

I have a netgear, 54 mbps wireless router WGR614 v5 and can not locate my installation disk. Can anyone tell me where I vcan get the instructions to install it?


This is Netgear Support and the page for the Netgear WGR614 version 5,

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2587

1.Software you need:

Click on the Downloads tab.
Now click on the - WGR614v5 Firmware Version 1.09, in blue.

(I would bookmark this page. After you have installed the software, you need to come back, and download the Installation Guide. While installing the software, it is best to have your internet connection closed, and all windows closed. You will then be on your desktop screen.

If you do not have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder, {Documents for Vista}, this download will go to your desktop screen.

When you see it, double-click right on the file name. The Installation Wizard will come up. Just click on Next, Next again, and Finish. Do not be concerned when it shows you where the file is going. It will be put in the correct place. Don't change it)

2.Documentation: (Instructions for installing)
Click on the Documentation tab.
The Installation Guide is listed at the top of the list

How to install with out the cd?


Are you using XP? You shouldn't need the CD.

http://www.netgear.com/Home/Products/Adapters/GWirelessAdapters/WG111.aspx

Gives you information about the USB adapter.

http://www.netgear.com/Products/RoutersandGateways/GWirelessRouters/WGR614.aspx

That gives you information about your wireless router.

Do you need a manual to set this up? It looks like there are different version of this wireless router. Which one do you have? This can be identified on the package or the unit's bottom label.

Once we know which version you have we can continue.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
