Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Web pages slow to load or not at all

I have had no probs with this router for about a year now but suddenly, it either won't load pages or freezes altogether. I can't access iTunes at all. The system all works fine if I plug directly into my modem but then I'm stuck at my desk and can't use my macbook.
I can't think what could have happened. I run a G5 imac and an intel macbook.

I RECOMMEND YOU TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE OF YOUR ROUTER. Download the firmware from belking support site.

Running slow


Is it running slow on both wired and wireless connections? how about if a PC is wired directly to the modem? That will eliminate the router as the issue (slow internet could be your modem or the connection itself).

If you're sure it's the router (wireless and wired) then upgrading the firmware would be first step. You can download the latest firmware from linksys.com and get it installed via the web interface of the router (probably found by going to http://192.168.1.1).

If a firmware update doesn't do it you can change your DNS servers from being automatically detected from your ISP to public ones. This may help web pages load faster. You can enter them also using the web interface. Set the Primary and Secondary DNS address to the numbers below (they are from OpenDNS.com).

Primary 208.67.222.222
Secondary 208.67.220.220

Scroll Issue


This is a very interesting problem.. Normally I would say the a router could not cause this kind of problem, but if the page is still loading, it could be possible.

When this happens, has the page finished loading all ready? The little circle of dots spinning in the top right of the browser if you are running firefox, will tell you if the page is still loading. There will be a similar icon for Internet Explorer too.

If the page has already loaded completely, then there is no way a router could cause the slow down. If you used the install CD that came with the router (no necessary by the way) then it could have loaded some "free" software on PC and this software is now slowing the browser down.

You may need to adjust some of the wireless settings of the router to speed up the wireless internet connection of your computer , You can do that by accessing the router setup page by typing its IP address on the computer that is working fine with the router and if you're not sure on how to do that I advice you to contact this number for technical help 1-877-787-8749 they are open 24/7.......

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads


it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Slow web page loading


To setup and improve your wireless network’s signal, you can change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) and/or try using a different channel.
Changing your Router’s SSID and Channel
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.
Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings.
click the Wireless tab and select the Wireless Security tab.
Step 3:
Select WEP under Security Mode.
Step 4:
Select any number on the Default Transmit Key field to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number one.
Step 5:
Select 64 bits on WEP Encryption
Step 6:
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 10 characters.
Step 7:
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.
And click save settings..

Slow downloads


Always update the router firmware ONLY if you have problems.

Run a DSL test to see if your actually getting the full speed inside the network.

www.DSLREPORTS.com <<--i believe but you can do a google search for broadband test.

I know with comcast you can unplug the modem for lengthy time, plug it back in so it pulls the most updated version off of comcast's server.

Netscaping


Yes, Netscape 6.2 will work properly with the web page-based interface used in D-Link DSL routers, however, due to problems the browser has loading Java applets and working with Java scripts all of the features may not be visible. Netscape 4.7 does work with the interface, but is extremely slow in loading the various configuration pages. For these reasons, it is recommended to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x or 6.0 to configure D-Link DSL routers. Internet Explorer loads the pages faster and Java applets work properly, as shown below. Note the tree in Fig. 1 (using Internet Explorer), representing the router´s various configuration pages and in Fig. 2, the PPP Connection information. Using Netscape 6.2 as shown in Fig. 3, the configuration tree is missing and in Fig. 4 the PPP Connection Information is not displayed.
