Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Web pages won't display

I am new to the world of wireless routers. When I'm conected to the Internet, some web pages like MySpace and Facebook won't display past the sites' home page. When I get 2 the home page and try 2 log in, it acts like it's going to change, but always times out. Netgear Tech Support is NO HELP! I currently have Comcast HiSpeed internet, Digital Voice phone service & cableTV. I also have a desktop and purchased the wireless router for my son's Dell XPS laptop. Both are located on the floor, but in separate rooms. Range seems 2 be fine because I can connect 2 the internet Did I buy the wrong router? mY son seems to think it's a bandwidth problem because I can go to other websites just fine. Please help. I've got the 12 days to send it back to Dell.

You have to call netgear again then ask them where you can find the MTU settings of the router. The default value is 1500. You can change it to 1450 first then 1400 if the first value won't work.

How to block facebook and myspace on the router-modem?


The router has the capability of blocking TCP/IP traffic from "specific" IP-addresses.

Name: www.facebook.com
Address: 66.220.149.32

=Name: www-lb.myspaceweb.akadns.net
Address: 63.135.80.46
Aliases: www.myspace.com, www.myspaceweb.akadns.net

So, "block" the above IP-addresses.
This will result in "time-out" errors within Internet Explorer, when the web-site does not appear to respond.

the psp, unless you have a hack installed, will not be able to browse sites such as youtube, or facebook, or twitter because they require flash/java/enhanced memory[this is not the memory stick]it can however use facebook mobile or myspace mobile by typing in m.facebook/m.myspace.com -- Tips:
  • You may have to do this every time you are in a new area or surrounding that has wifi hotspots
  • Go to www.youtube.com for tips, tricks and hacks.

I got new laptop and i want to conect with wireles but is asking for security key which i dont know where to check to find it. How can i do it/


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
NOTE: Before accessing the router’s web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or 4 ).

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 Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

To setup or SEE the WPA Wireless Security on your Linksys router, follow the steps below:
Setting-Up the Wireless Router to Use WPA
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, see above
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based, setup page appears, click Wireless and select Wireless Security.
Step 3:
Select WPA Personal under the Security Mode drop-down menu.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE JUST CHECKING ON THE PASSWORD NO NEED TO GO ON JUST TAKE NOTE OF THE WPA SHARED KEY AND USE IT IN YOUR LAPTOP WHEN ASKED OF THE PASSKEY
Step 4:
Select TKIP on WPA Algorithms.
Step 5:
Enter your desired WPA Key on the WPA Shared Key field such as “MySecretKey.” This will serve as your network key whenever you connect to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This key will secure your wireless network. Leave Group Key Renewal to 3600 seconds

Cannot get on the internet


Hi

The problem was in the wep key. I entered the old wep key, not recalling that we had to trade our router in for a new one last summer. When I entered the new wep key we were able to get online.
