SOURCE: connection settings for a ps3 via netgear WGR614

you need to check your routers firewall setting by accessing your router through the pc and make sure your plug and play settings are enabled. all can be found on the router setup page. the playstation only requires you to enter the WPSK or WPA wireless encryption key to log on so the problem is usually with the router....hope this helps.

Maybe you had a power surge.

The reset button does nothing with the router powered off, basically you hold the reset button in for 30 seconds with the router powered on. Following this you will need to set up the router again as all settings will be reset to factory defaults, from the sounds of it though the router may be dead.

Another reset method is as follows;

1. With the router powered off hold in the reset button,
2. Keep the reset button in, power on the router, wait 30 seconds,
3. Keep the reset button in, power off the router, wait 30 second,
4. Release the reset button.

Did you have wireless disabled?

If you have access to a multimeter check the PSU is working correctly.

Log in wireless network Netgear wgr614 v9


The default address for netgear routers is : 192.168.1.1

So just open a browser, type 192.168.1.1 and hit go. It will ask for a user name and password. Default UN : admin PW: password

If that doesn't work, check the bottom part of your router for the username and password. If still not working, the login might be changed. You can reset the router to factory settings by pressing and holding the small reset button at the back of the router for 10-15 seconds while the power is on. You can use a pen or a pin to reset it. Wait for a minute and try it again.

Hope that works,
Regards.

Their is a code that i dont remember and i dont know how to get it


Reset the router:


  1. Push the "Default Reset" button on the back of the Netgear WGR614-V6. The button is located on the back of the unit, to the left of the external antenna. You may need to use a pin or the tip of a pencil to access the button.

  2. 2

    Continue holding the button in until you see the "Power" indicator on the front of the unit turn off and back on. This takes approximately ten seconds.

  3. 3

    Let go of the button. The Netgear WGR614-V6 shuts off and turns back on. Allow several seconds for this process to complete.

  4. 4

    Log into the router using the default password by opening a Web browser and navigating to the address "192.168.1.1." Enter the password "password" to log in.

Network Key for netgear wgr614


Hi, taffy_man, the network key is something you configure yourself. If you dont know it you have to RESET the router to the factory defaults.
Take a paper clip, or something sharp, and insert it into the little reset hole in the back of the router, and hold for 15 seconds or so, that'll reset the router. Wait for all the lights to stop flashing and remain on, then try to connect to the internet.
Or you could type www.routerlogin.com into your internet address bar and it'll ask you for the username and password, the defaults are admin and password..
If that doesnt work do the same thing but first disconnect the power cable. Then while pressing the reset button THEN connect the power cable again but keep the reset button for 10 secons and then go to the routerlogin.com or (192.168.1.1) and do what I wrote above. Then you will have to reconfigure your settings. I hope this helps.

Netgear WGR614 Power light goes off.


I understad that you need to powercycle the router for it to work. In this case, please note that this indicates failure with the router hardware. The only thing you can do now is upgrade the firmware on the router. You may check for firmware updates by visiting the site below:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1296

After uploading the firmware on the router, reset the router and reconfigure it.

If the issue persists ten the best bet for the router is to either get it replaced or trash it.
