SOURCE: Problem with netgear wgr614 v6 daisy chain

I am assuming the Verison was setup and working before this started, if not let me know.

Do you know the address and subnet mask for the lan side of the Verison Actiontec router? assumed like address 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 This means all addresses 192.168.0.? belong to the verison router's subnet.

Assuming the Netgear router is being daisy chained using a lan port from the Verison Router to the WAN port of the Netgear, the WAN side of the Netgear router needs to be either dynamically addressed or statically addressed in the 192.168.0.? uniquely outside the DHCP range for the Verison router.

The LAN side of the Netgear Router must not be addressed the same as the LAN side of the Verison router in this configuration.

There is another potential configuration where lan ports of both routers are connected. however in that configuration there are additional considerations. Please let ne know which connection you are attempting between the two routers.

There is some additional informatin you can gather

Assuning you have windows XP for the operating system on your computers hook a computer wired if possible to the LAN side of each router and issue the following commands

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt in the new window that opens type the following command and press enter

ipconfig

write down th IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway for each adapter

Then issue the following command once for each default gateway not = 0.0.0.0 where {...} is replaced in its entirety with the default gateway.

pring {default gateway address no {}}

the expected responses will be either 4 timeouts or 4 lines with elapsed times. Timeout is failure -- elapsed times means it was connected.

For each router I need to know the default gateway and the subnet mask for the successful pair. Plese reply ina comment to this problem and additional steps will be forthcomming.

Hello kidd08,
Step 1: Determining the IP Address of a Computer: Follow these steps to check the IP address of a computer for which the Ports are to be opened:

For Windows 2000/XP users:

a. Please click on Start and select Run.
b. Type in cmd and click on OK.
c. In the command prompt, please type ipconfig then press Enter or Return key.
d. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.2 for the computer and 192.168.1.1 for the router).
e. Please note down the IP Address.

Step 2: Logging on to the Router Page:

a. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Click on Enter or Return key.
c. For security reasons, the router has its own username and password. When prompted, enter admin for the Username and password for the Password, both in lower case letters.

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

d. You will then see the setup page once you have successfully logged in.
e. A menu will be seen on the left hand side of the router configuration page. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced. For older firmware version, click on Port Triggering tab or just click Port Forwarding on Please select the service type.
f. Click Add and another window will pop up.
g. Type Xbox for Name. Set the radio button to Enable.
h. On Outgoing Port Range, set the Start Port and End Port to 3074.
i. On Incoming Port Range, you also have to indicate 3074 for Start Port and End Port. Save the settings by clicking on Apply.
j. Please repeat steps 4 to 7 and indicate 88 for Start Port and End Port. Then change the Name to Xbox2.

Other things to check:

A. Lower down the MTU.

a. Access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2 above).
b. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
c. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300.
d. Click on the Apply button.

B. Enable UPnP.

a. Go to UPnP tab of the router.
b. Enable UPnP and then save the settings by clicking on Apply. Some websites and devices require UPnP or Universal Plug and Play. Just make sure that it is enabled on the router.

C. Upgrade the firmware.

Note: Follow the steps below if the above troubleshooting still do not allow Xbox to connect using the router.

a. Please verify the router version and model either underneath or at its side panel.
b. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and please select the model of the router.
c. Click the appropriate version of the router.
d. Select the link of the latest firmware. Click the button Right-click and Save to Download. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with Wired or Ethernet connection only.

e. Before upgrading, please write down all current settings since you need to enter them manually.
f. Using the computer hardwired on the router, please launch Internet Explorer and access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2).
g. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
h. Click on Browse and locate the upgraded file in your Desktop. Then click on Upload.
i. Please wait for the router to reboot.
j. After a successful firmware upgrade, you need to reset the router.
k. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
l. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

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.

How do I resolve my internet port light being amber on my wgr614v7 netgear router


Recommend that you go one step at a time.

1) unplug the wireless router.
2) reset your Cable modem or DSL modem. Wait until the lights show the Wide area network or WAN is working correctly before applying power to the Netgear wireless router.

3) After a minute or so, its signals should change from amber to bright green.

Repeat if necessary. If this doesn't provide the connectivity that you need, a call to your Internet Service provider may be necessary.

My wireless router wont let me connect to the internet, the internet light on the unit is amber. My unit is netgear WGR614


When the router sees an ethernet connection on the WAN, it gives an amber light until it links to the internet. So, either it's a DSL and you need to set the PPPoE properly, or it's a cable connection and you need to configure it with the DHCP or IP address.

Check your ISP's modem instructions carefully and reconfigure.

The internet port light keeps flashing amber


Frustrating that the answer is not readily apparent from Netgear but it's really pretty easy. An Amber light on the Internet Port means the same as an Amber Light on a Lan Port. That is, the router senses the connection is less than the maximum speed. No, Netgear does not document this in their manual but will 'fess up to it if you talk to a real Tech Support person. There is no difference in the lights in the Internet Port and Lan Ports. They are both "Ports". From Netgear:
Green - The LAN (local area network) port has detected link with a 100 Mbps
device.
Green Blinking - Data is being transmitted or received at 100 Mbps.
Amber - The Local port has detected link with a 10 Mbps device.
Amber Blinking - Data is being transmitted or received at 10 Mbps.
No light - No link is detected on this port.

But your Internet still works you say. Yes, that is because your connection to your ISP is just about always less than the minimum speed, so you don't notice any difference other than an annoying change in color on the router. This usually can be resolved by resetting the modem. That will cause the ISP to reconnect to you with a different modem at their end. They have a piece of equipment that is less than optimal but if they are like most ISPs, they will not have a clue (or an interest in getting it fixed). If you call your ISP, they will probably set you on a whole course of checking your computer network drivers, updating router firmware, resetting and rebooting your computer, etc. All steps listed in the Official HelpDesk Guide to Getting the Customer Off the Phone Manual as one of those usually will eventually will be a reset of the offending piece of equipment.

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.
