I currently have a Netgear WGR614DLNA router SN16625C7511535 that
is new never out of the box. Problem is that I got it 2 years ago when I purchased my Dell Lap-Top and never used it. I used a different WGR614 router. (Actually Dell shipped me two routers and I used the one).
Anyway the one I a trying to use now has never been registered. But I would like to hook it up here in Florida. I have a modem (from Brighthouse)and a Dell Desktop PC that is connected to the Internet. It's not wireless. I want to add the Netgear router along with my Dell Lap-Top which is wireless and was hooked up to the other Netgear router in Ohio.
Can I have both PCs hooked up thru the router, the desk top like cabled and the lap-top wireless? And do I run thru the setup procedure on both of the PCs using the CD that comes with the router?

Re: Question on setting up two computers
Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

How do I enter into the web menu (GUI) to configure my router settings?
A. To open the web menu, type 192.168. 0.1. into a web browser and enter
the user name 'admin' and password 'password' into the space provided
You voice box IP address has to be set to you current network address range.
Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL - http://192.168.0.1 The default login = admin The default PW = passwordYou can now change the default admin password and configurethe wireless settings. Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption. Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
For Netgear routers, open an Internet browser window on a computer connected to the Netgear router. Go to www.routerlogin.net and log in with your username and password. If you never set a username and password, then the username should be 'admin' and leave the password box blank. Once logged in click 'Wireless Settings' on the blue bar on the left side of the page. Once on the Wireless Settings page, look for the Wireless Network section, click in the box next to Name (SSID) and type in your desired network name. Click apply at the bottom of the page, and you're done.
If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234 - these are the default password for NetGear routers). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.
Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html
Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".
In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.
