Re: netgear kwgr614 does not connect
Hi - dlund - is this a new router? If so, did you use the disk and follow the instructions? ( sorry, I have to ask?) Assuming everything is connected correctly, what's your machine make and model#? If it's a laptop is it a card you plugged in or did it come installed? Try this: Unplug your modem and router. After about 60 seconds plug in your modem. When all the lights come on(except the activity light) ,plug in your router. Give it ten seconds and try it. Also, is your router protected by a WPA or WEP key? Try these things, answer these questions, let me know. Thanks.

If you are trying to connect the computer to the router with a cable the above diagram should help to explain the simple broadband signal path from the Ethernet or telephone wall socket, to the router and from the router to the computer's RJ45/Ethernet port. Once the computer is connected to the router by a cable is connected to a telephone wall socket or a ERJ45/Ethernet wall socket that has a 'always on' broadband internet signal coming into it, nothing else is required -> launch the Web Browser. If you are connecting wirelessly the wall socket to the router part of the setup is the same but no cable is required between the router and the computer. Enable the wireless function in your netbook, click on the image of two computers bottom right near the clock -> view available networks/connect to network -> click on the appropriate Netgear router signal -> connect -> launch the Web Browser.
This has happened to me many times. There are a few ways to get around this.
120 Feet is well within the range of the device. However that range is affected by a wide range of factors.
Walls - The signal will have a hard time penetrating some types of construction (e.g. Concrete, Lathe and Plaster)
Obstructions - Other things can also block the signal. Freezers, speakers, electronics, extensive wiring.
Environment - Some areas are more or less wireless dead zones. Nearby airports, radio antenna or other broadcasting equipment can interfere with the wireless signal.
If your 120 feet include 8 lathe and plaster walls, with a ham radio and a walk in freezer; you want to just get a nice long cable instead of proceeding with my further advice. However if there are only a couple of drywall walls and no blockages proceed.
Try adjusting the location of the router. Often just moving the router to a high shelf or over a few feet can solve this type of issue.
Can you connect at any range between close and 120 feet? Some testing could help identify the source of your signal loss.
Try to build an antenna?
Get a cable
At home I use a cable even though I'm mere feet away from my wireless router. I play online games and the wireless signal regularly experiences fluctuations in connectivity. This represents just how delicate the wireless connection really is. Imagine the invisible waves trying to penetrate your 120 feet and look for anything that might obstruct.
Hi. I would suggest that you chane the cross cable into a straight cable configuration, so that both router can transmit signal at the same time and might solve the issue of intermitent connection failure. Hope this Helps
The 2WIRE modem will have at least 3 ports:
* AC power,
* 4-pin telephone-cable, connecting to a telephone-jack in a wall-port,
* 8-pin Ethernet-cable, connecting to the 'WAN' port on the LINKSYS router.
Look at both ends of the Ethernet cable. It's necessary that the colour-arrangement of the 8-wires is _IDENTICAL_ at both ends, i.e., a "straight-through" cable, NOT a "cross-over" cable.
With another "straight-through" Ethernet-cable, connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-adapter port on your computer.
Turn on the 2WIRE modem. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.
Turn on the router. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.
Turn on your computer. When Windows finishes booting, you should have a connection to the Internet.
try puuting the wireless access point on the middle and atleast 5 ft of the ground this will increase your signal slightly also make sure that there is no cordless phone especially the base near the wireless access point.
OK - I'm trying to visualize your setup...interesting!
The patch cable the electrician used is the same one you are using to connect to your hub? In other words: You checked the cables and they are all working fine?
You are sure the hub is working?
It has to be either the hub or one of the cables. It looks like you are not exceeding the total length of UTP-5 (330ft).
Test all involved patch cables either with a cable tester or by plugging in a computer and see if there are any problems. amke sure the patch cables are "straight through", either 568A or 568B identical on both ends of the cable.
Do you have the chance to use another hub or switch for testing purposes?
Just come back here and leave a comment with your findings - I'm happy to help.
what exactly do you plug directly in the wall? what kind of connector does it use? an 'f' connector on a coax cable or RJ45 (like a phone plug? if you are using a cable connection you have to have a modem for that to work. if you are using a Ethernet cable tied directly to a jack on the wall you'll have to be sure routers are allowed to connect. or register the router with your provider. be sure your wireless router is getting an address form the internet provider. with out more details i can't give you any more specifics.
plug a laptop straight into the router with a cable. then open an internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 type in the username and password. the default will be admin for username and password for password. then close the browser and unplug the cable. it might detect wireless internet after a few seconds. if it doesn't, it is possible that you have a PC set up as the internet gateway for the laptops or something, so when you introduce encryption the laptops can't get access. in which case you should go to your wireless icon on the laptop and click that and open the connection list. double click on the wap secured connection and try to connect. it should ask for a username and password, which you have secured the wireless encryption with. enter that and it should connect to the gateway. dunno if this helps, good luck chris firstname.lastname@example.org
First unplug router, turn off computer. Then plug ethernet into router then power up. Allow time for router to recognise internet connection and boot up completely. Then plug second ethernet into computer then power up computer. Allow enough time for the router to recognise computer and the computer to recognise router. You should be able to access internet within a few minutes. If not you might want to verify that the router is not outdated and fully functioning.
