Ethernet Cord for Router?

I got the Netgear router for free with the purchase of a labtop.

I've been using this router with my family not for wireless but to have multiple computers share one internet with multiple ethernet cords.

I realized that a wireless network would be easier to have around the house. However when I was in the middle of wireless installation, it froze. (this was on my desktop computer)

Ever since then, I tried going back to using ethernet cords. However, it only works for one plug. It recognizes my labtop but not my computer.

Also, I've noticed that upon starting up the router device, the "test", "interenet", and "Lan" lights keep flickering back and forth. I have to wait or prod around the device to stop it.

I attempt to press the "Restore Factory Settings" button, but it does not change much.

What can I do to solve this problem?
Is this a manufacturer problem?
Is my router broken?

Thanks in advance! This is very frustrating.

Test the router on another DSL line,

hard reset the router

If all else fails, the router is broken.

Have you tried a different router on your DSL line?

I'm trying to use my Computer without the Ethernet Cord(wireless) I'm having trouble finding the original netgear router login page where it ask me for my ssid and password. Also, i't been so...


If you've forgotten the password then best thing to do is to reset the router so it clears it. You do that usually by pressing a button on the router, else there will be a small hole that you insert a pin in to reset it.

Once it is reset you will have to go through all the setup/config again. To connect to the router go to your browser window and type in the ip # for the router, typically 192.168.***.*** , most have 1.0 or 1.1 for the last two numbers.

If your not sure what your netgear uses than search google for the netgear site, then go to support or download and put in the exact model number for the netgear and download the manual again for instructions.

How do i connect my netgear rangemax wireless router


You should have a manual/setup guide.
BUT, the basics of setting a wireless router are.

Connect an ethernet cable from your MODEM to the WAN port on the rear of the ROUTER.
Connect an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports (usually 4) to your computer.
You now log on to your router via your web browser, set your wireless security (using WPA2) choose your password.
Save and exit from the router setup, disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer to the router and try and connect wirelessly
Your support page is here, choose which version of the router you have and download your manual

I dont have this cable that says to connect it to the netgear and in to the labtop so how else could i connect the internet


It's called an Ethernet cable. Very cheap, you only need to use to configure your router for the first time, then you'll be wireless.

Netgear WGR614 router with USB Cable Modem


When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!

Ethernet Cord for Router?


Hi,
I want to tell you that how can you get your password back or reset your wireless password.

1. Work on your wired computer which is connected with the netgear router using ethernet cable
2. Make sure on the rear side of your netgear router you can see four ethernet slots and one internet slot.
3. One internet slot is only for your ISP modem and rest of the four slots you can use any computer to connect with that using ethernet cable.
4. Click on start - Run - then type in "cmd" press enter and you will get black screen. under the black screen just type "ipconfig" you can see some information on your screen search for default gateway numbers.
5. Once you get default gateway open IE and type those numbers without anything else then press enter.
6. It will ask you for user name and password by default "admin" and password is " password "
7. Once you click ok it will open netgear setting page
8. On the left side you can see wireless setting which is under "setup" then click on that option
9. On the middle of the screen you can scroll down that page at the bottom you can see your security key or passphrase.
10. Or you can type new password on the same screen and apply those settings
11. Now try again to connect your device wirelessly enter you existing password or new password which you have setup.
12. Make sure one thing more on the left hand side you have option called "Router Status"
13 Once you click on that at the middle of the screen show you router status and you can find the option called "internet port"
14. We are getting ip under internet port
15. If we re getting ip address then you can simply try to connect wirelessly otherwise please run setup wizard to configure your router. you should getting ip under internet port.

I believe these steps help you to resolve your problem

Thanks & Regards.
