I need to reset or find my origional password. Please help. Thanks

If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234 - these are the default password for NetGear routers). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings:

I cannot access the netgear settings.

to access the router you will need to open up your web browser and type in,it will then ask you for a user name and password ,the user name is admin,the password is password,that will get into the netgear utility for the router,that info can also be found on the bottom of router,if that doesnt work then you will have to reset the router to the default settings by holding in the reset button for about ten seconds located on the back ,you will have to use something that is small enough to depress it,you have to reset it while it is on,if you got it used then you should reset it anyway so that you can configure it according to your situation,ok have fun and good luck,you can get detailed info from netgears website.

I have a netgear router WGR614v9 . I forgot its password. I can not connect any computer to internet. How do i reset the password?


There should be a reset button at the back of your Netgear router. Press it for 10-30 seconds and that should reset it back to factory settings.

How to connect WGR614V9 to my computer without cd

Well you don't actually need software to connect to a wireless router, just makes it a little easier. First off if you had a wep or wpa wireless protection key in place and you didn't write it down and don't remember it you'll have to find something small to stick in the small reset hole in the back of the router and hold it in for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults. Then you should be able to connect to it by Clicking start and going to "Connect to" and wireless connections and look for like netgear or wgr or something related to your router. From there we can now go to your browser and type in in the adress bar and hit enter then enter admin in the user and password in the password spot and hit enter. from here you can set your wep or wpa security keys (remember to write them down as your Pc will ask for them when connecting again) and you can set up your own name and password of coarse. I hope this helps :)

Firmware update for netgear router

I was having the same issues too. I followed the steps dotted all over the internet and was getting stuck in exactly the same place. No matter how hard I tried, I just kept getting the 'invalid filename' issue.

Eventually I figured it out - the way that Netgear/Virgin have blocked firmware updating is to break the filename checking page so it doesn't accept any files. What we need to do is bypass the filename checking code so that the firmware upgrade system can then handle the file, and we're going to do this by manipulating the web page using a tool called Firebug.

Here is the solution:

1) If you haven't already got it, install Mozilla Firefox 3 (there is good reason for this - I'm not just shamelessly plugging it! :P).
2) Install the 'Firebug' extension for Firefox from and restart your browser when requested.
3) Navigate to your router's admin page, and fill in your login details (if you don't know them, it's likely to be the one written on the bottom of your router).
4) Navigate to the router upgrade page (the one where you select the firmware to upload' and select the location of the firmware file, like you would normally. Now, instead of clicking the 'Upload' button, press F12. This should bring up Firebug in the bottom quarter of your screen.
5) Now, click the moz-screenshot.png2193448.jpgbutton at the top of the Firebug panel and then click on the 'Upload' button. This will bring up the code for the upload button, where it does the filename checking. It'll look like this:

6) It looks like Netgear have actually stripped out the real checking code so it can't be used, so we'll need to fool the page into thinking everything's fine and dandy with the filename so it can update the firmware. Click where it says "return checkData();" and replace it with "return true;".

7) Finally, click the upload button. The router should now accept the file and start updating.

And hey presto! You have a non-nargled wireless router with the latest firmware!
