If your router is still accessible you can perform a firmware update.Please follow the instructions below .
Note : please do this on a computer that is directly connected to your router thru an ethernet cable.

1.click start , run , and type on the run box, cmd.
2. You will see a black screen or the dos prompt, enter on the blinking cursor the word ipconfig. Then press enter.
3.Look for the ip address and default gateway. If your default gateway and ip address starts with 192.168.x.x. that means your router is still giving proper address to your computer.
if the ip address is 169.xx, you may need to reset your router for 30 seconds and then check again if the ip address is the same by typing ipconfig. 169.xx ip address is an invalid ip, you wont be able to access the web interface if your getting an invalid ip address.
4.close the dos prompt. Open your browser and enter http://routerlogin.com
5. it will prompt you for a username and password.
username is admin
password is password
6.click on the router upgrade and proceed on updating your unit to the latest software.
you can visit http://www.netgear.com to look for the latest firmware available for your router. Please make sure to select the exact model number. updating the router to a wrong version will brick it.

Please rate me if the solution is helpful

Need to know the passphrase for the wrg 614 v7


The paraphase is something the owner sets up. you can log into the router @

192.168.0.1 OR www.routerlogin.net. Use the default username (admin) and password (password) .
Go to Wireless, then security. you will see the paraphrse there.

If you need to reset the router do the following:

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.
Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

My power light on my Netgear WGR614 wireless router keeps blinking & will not allow me access to the internet.I have unpluged it, pressed the reset button & the light keeps blinking.Any thoughts?


Maybe you had a power surge.

The reset button does nothing with the router powered off, basically you hold the reset button in for 30 seconds with the router powered on. Following this you will need to set up the router again as all settings will be reset to factory defaults, from the sounds of it though the router may be dead.

Another reset method is as follows;

1. With the router powered off hold in the reset button,
2. Keep the reset button in, power on the router, wait 30 seconds,
3. Keep the reset button in, power off the router, wait 30 second,
4. Release the reset button.

Did you have wireless disabled?

If you have access to a multimeter check the PSU is working correctly.

PS3 and Netgear WGR614 V7 Router


Basically the PS3 wireless settings needs to be configures with the Netgear wireless router settings.
To test if the modem is connects to the Internet, connect a computer into the modem, if it works then the modem is configured correctly. If it doesn't work, then contact your ISP and get them to test your modem connection.
For details on how to configure the PS3 click on the WEB link :-

That means it hasnt picked up an IP from the modem.

Unplug the power to the modem and the router. Leave them off for a full minute. Pluge the modem in first , give it another full minute then power up the router. If you still have problems try another cable.

If you still have issues, Power off the modem and the PC and repeat the above process.Verify the PC is getting connection. If you cant connect then call the cable/DSL company.

If you can connect download the latest firmware from Netgear and flash the router.

The universal pword is, believe it or not, 1234
Here is the website with exact instructions from NetGear itself - these instructions are for the v4 version of your router - make sure this is the correct version of the WGR614, or else this exact page will not work for you - if you have v7 instead, go to the v7 page, etc.
