Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Netgear wireless router WGT 624v4 not accessing some websites

We switched to a wireless router, Netgear 624v4 when we purchased a Compaq laptop. The router supports 2 computers and the laptop. There is one web site, webkinz.com, that we can access on the laptop but not on the other computers with the new router. The webkinz website suggested I try a different browser, did that and couldn't get past page 1, or check with your router service, that's you. So, what can I do to make the connection?

If the router was the problem, then no site would be accessible from either of the problem pc's.

unless the webkinz site is being blocked because it contains active scripts. check the configuration page for the router (usually 192.168.1.1) and switch off any active firewall / security applications running on the router.

Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Password key for my wireless router netgear WGT 624


To access your router's software and programming, go to your internet address bar and type 192.168.1.1
If it asks you for username and password, type admin for both. Change settings from here.

I wish to connect a WGT 624v3 wireless router to a laptop on Vist


Hello again! No problem at all, and thank you for the information. I'll do what I can to help.
If the plan is to make a wireless internet connection with the new laptop, I would usually split it into three stages:

1) Establish a wired connection to the internet
2) Connect wirelessly from the laptop
3) Secure the wireless connection

In this case it's worth trying to connect wirelessly straight away. This is because a wired connection seems to have been established already, with the old desktop.

So the first things to do are:
A) Make sure the router is connected to the modem;
B) Switch on the router and modem. There should be some comforting green lights displayed on the front of the router, including one that looks like a wireless beacon. That shows the wireless 'access point' in the router is functioning
C) Switch on the laptop. There may also be a switch on the laptop to enable the wireless connection: if so, switch it on.

When the laptop has fully booted up, see if there is a 'wireless networks' icon visible in the laptop screen Notification Area (bottom right). If not, try restarting the computer.

If there is an icon, floating the cursor over the icon may show a message saying 'wireless networks available' or similar. Click on the icon and your relative may see a screen with an option to 'view wireless networks', or similar (I'm an XP user, so hope you can interpret here). If so, one will be an unsecured connection - hers! She should be able to click to connect. I recommend being as close as possible to the router when first connecting.

If she cannot find her own network, or there is no icon to click, or the network has previously been secured - please let me/us know.

If everything works correctly the first time (!), your relative should now have an unsecured wireless connection to the internet. This is a good time to experiment with the placement of the router and the laptop, to ensure a good signal is received. However, it is NOT recommended to use an unsecured connection for long, and not at all for anything private. It is like leaving your personal information on the doorstep for all to read. A wired connection is, by contrast, secure.

If everything works to this point, I'm happy to help with securing the wireless connection. However, establishing any connection is the first step. So, please let me/us know if anything is not clear, or does not work as hoped. Good luck!
