Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
My new Netgear wireless router and my new HP laptop will not connect . The light flashes on my router the wireless light flashes . After 4 hours of no contact i am about ready to take this machine back and get my cash back .
New computer and new router but can't get it connected this sucks. My house looks a mess , My autistic child is going insane and on top of this a huge fight with my wife about what a stupid idea it was to buy a lap top . Geek Squad is good at installing there propriety software / spy-ware on computer but next time I will order direct from dell . 4 hours last night plus one this morning making 5 total hours of pure chaos from a machine and router plus service plan I paid a lot of money for . I am stupid . Best Buy is a good place for buying big screen TV's but lousy for a LapTop purchase . Geek Squad was no help .

There are a couple of ways to go on this one..first plug into the router with a netwrok cable, NOT via wireless.
If you have just opened the box on the netgear router you would need to configure some basic settings such as the SSID (name of the router) the country the router is in and maybe some type of security settings...often this cannot be done via a wireless connection at first, you must connect your laptop's netowrk port to a touter port on the rear of the Netgear. Open I.E. and navigate to something like http://192.168.0.1 (look on the sticker on the botton of the Netgear) setup the basics then try your wireless link using the settings you programmed.
