Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a Wii console setup through my Netgear wireless connection. It was working fine (I was downloading NetFlix movies), then I was receiving error messages that it was unable to connect to the Internet. After that, it was working again, and now for the past 2 days it cannot connect to the Internet. My settings on the console are good (triple checked). Could I need a Router Secirity Key (WPA) and if so, I cannot seem to connect to the access login to get the key. What do I do next?

SOURCE: Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router

You have to configure your router...

If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.

If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.

Hope this could help..

Hi, you need to connect to the routers admin pages to configure the wireless settings and security. Check out this page:-
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101676.asp

When you get to step 6, click the WPA-PSK security setting and it will give you a box to type in a password of your choice, make it memorable but difficult to guess, so a mixture of numbers and letters. I think its a min of 8 characters.
Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Unable to Detect NetGear RangeMax WPN824

Step 1
No Wireless Connection Found in Range

1. Using a computer wired to the router, please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. For security reasons, the router has its own username and password. When prompted, please type in admin for the Username and password for the Password, both in lower case letters.

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network.

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off.
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer.
c. Possible wireless interferences.

Step 2;
Starting from the beginning...
Step 1: Checking the hardwired connection of your computer going to the router

1. If you are using Windows XP on your computer, you can check if your computer is able to communicate with the router. In most cases, the reason why you are having a ‘Page cannot be displayed’ error on your Internet Explorer is because your hardwired connection settings on the computer is disabled.
2. Please click on Start and go to Control Panel.
3. If you see ‘Pick a category’, please click ‘Switch to classic view’ on the left side panel.
4. Look for ‘Network Connections’ and open it up.
5. Look for any icon that says ‘Local Area Connection’.
6. Right-click on it. It should pop up a menu. The very first option can either be ‘Enable’ or ‘Disable’, whichever may be.
7. If it is ‘Enable’, that means you need to click ‘Enable’ to activate the hardwired connection. If it is ‘Disable’ then it is already been activated.
8. Once it is enabled, right-click the same icon and choose ‘Status’.
9. Go to ‘Support’ tab and please check the IP Address.
10. You should be getting information similar to this:

IP Address: 10.0.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1

11. If you have information similar to above, then you are able to communicate with the router. Please close the window and proceed to ‘Reconfiguring the router’.
12. Otherwise, kindly right-click again ‘Local Area Connection’ and go to ‘Properties’.
13. Under the ‘General’ tab, look for the box that says ‘This connection uses the following items’. Inside that box is ‘Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)’. Please double-click on it.
14. A window should pop-up. Choose ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’ and ‘Obtain DNS server address automatically’. Please click on ‘OK’, then another ‘OK’ to dismiss the window. Repeat step 8 to 11.

Step 2: Reconfiguring the router

1. Please disconnect your modem from your computer. Turn off your modem and set it aside first.
2. Using an Ethernet cable, please connect it to port no. 1 of the router. On the other end, connect it directly to your computer. Turn on your router. Check the lights (Power, Port number lights, etc.). If you placed the cable on port no.1, port no.1 light should be lit up.
3. Kindly access http://www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or 192.168.1.1 using Internet Explorer or any browser that you have.
4. If it asks for a username and password, use ‘admin’ and ‘password’ for the username and password, respectively.
5. Determine the type of connection you have from your Internet provider. Please follow and configure the corresponding steps for your specific type of connection for the Basic Settings:

- Does your Internet connection require a login?: Yes
- Select Other for the Internet Service Provider and enter your ISP’s username and password.
- Domain Name Server Address: Get Automatically From ISP
- Click ‘ Apply

9. After clicking ‘Apply’, the router will update its settings.
10. Please connect the modem with an Ethernet cable to the Internet port of the router. Make sure that no USB cable is connected to the modem going through the computer.
11. Unplug the router’s power adapter. Turn off the modem.
12. Power on your modem. Once your modem is stable, re-plug the router’s power adapter.
13. Check the power light, wireless light, Internet light, and port number light. The Internet light should be light green same as with the power light.
14. Try browsing the Internet. If you are not able to go online, restart the computer and try again.

Note: After following step 3, still you are not getting internet connection. Kindly proceed to step 4. Otherwise, you can proceed directly to step 5 for the wireless settings of the router.

Step 3: Getting wireless connection from the router

1. Again, please access http://www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or 10.0.0.1 using Internet Explorer or any browser that you have.
2. If it asks for a username and password, use ‘admin’ and ‘password’ for the username and password, respectively. If you have a different password for your router, use that password.
3. You should be able to access the NETGEAR settings page again.
4. Go to the left side of the screen (blue panel).
5. Please click ‘Wireless Settings’ and view your wireless settings. Modify your settings with the following:

- Name(SSID): (your own name)
- Region: United States
- Channel: 9
- Mode: g & b
- Security Option: WEP
- Authentication Type: Automatic
- Encryption Strength: 64-bit
- Passphrase: (leave this blank)
- Key 1: (type here your 10-digit phone number; example: 7183386814)
- Write down the contents ‘Key 1’ on a paper. (This will serve as your permanent network key that you will use as an authentication when you connect wirelessly.)

6. Please click ‘Apply’ so that the settings would be saved and updated.
7. Locate ‘Advanced Wireless Settings’ from the left hand side of your NETGEAR page.
8. Make sure that the ‘Enable Wireless Router Radio’ and ‘Enable SSID Broadcast’ are checked. Kindly click ‘Apply’ to save the settings.
9. Please click on your Start Button. Click ‘Run’.
10. Type ‘services.msc’ on the ‘Run’ window then press OK.
11. Look for ‘Wireless Zero Configuration’ and double-click it.
12. Change the ‘Startup Type’ to ‘Automatic’ and click ‘OK’.
13. Please disconnect the Ethernet cable from your laptop so that you can go wireless. Restart your computer.
14. Kindly right-click the ‘Wireless Network Connections’ icon (monitor screen icon) on the bottom right corner of your screen near the time.
15. Choose ‘Open Network Connections’. It should open the ‘Network Connections’ window.
16. On the ‘Network Connections’ window, please right-click ‘Wireless Network Connections’ and choose ‘Properties’.
17. Go to ‘Wireless Networks’ tab. Check the ‘Use Windows to configure my wireless settings’.
18. On the bottom, look for ‘Preferred Networks’.
19. Please click each network that you find on that box and click ‘Remove’. You need to delete all the networks including yours.
20. Click ‘OK’ to exit.
21. Kindly right-click the ‘Wireless Network Connections’ icon (monitor screen icon) on the bottom right corner of your screen near the time. This time, choose ‘View Available Networks’.
22. Please click ‘Refresh network list’ on the left-hand side to re-detect the wireless networks around you.
23. Please click the name of your network (your first name) and then click ‘Connect’ down at the bottom.
24. It will ask for a WEP key or a network key. Kindly specify the network key (your phone number) which you have set from the NETGEAR router and click ‘Connect’.
25. The window will say ‘Acquiring network address’ and eventually will become ‘Connected’.
26. By this time, you can now try browsing the Internet again wirelessly.

What are you using for VPN? If you are using PPTP, it's probably due to split tunneling enabled. Goto Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right click on VPN Network Adapter, then click Properties > then click Networking tab > select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click properties > click Advanced button and uncheck Use Default gateway on remote network.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.

Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Setting up wii for netflix


Netflix Instant is available for streaming on your Wii gaming console by early spring 2010. If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch movies and episodes easily on your TV through your Wii console. This article will detail the important things you will need to make sure that you can watch Netflix from the Wii.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

  • Netflix subscription
  • Nintendo Wii gaming console
  • Broadband internet
    • 1 Check you Netflix subscription. The minimum subscription plan to watch Netflix instantly is the unlimited 1 DVD at a time plan or otherwise the $8.99 plan. This plan allows to watch movies instantly with unlimited monthly hours.
    • 2 Check internet bandwidth on your broadband connection. According to Netflix the minimum bandwidth requirement is 1.5Mbps. Netflix recommends for watching movies instantly a 3.0Mbps connection. Check with your internet service provider to confirm that these download speeds.
    • 3 A wired connection to your Wii console. An ethernet connection to your Wii console would be preferable. Unfortunately the Wii console does not have an ethernet port but a USB port. A USB LAN Adapter can be found at most computer supply merchants or online from Wii or Amazon.com. The ethernet connection is an ethernet wire from your home LAN router connected to your USB LAN adapter. The USB LAN adapter is then connected to the USB port on the Wii console. This connection will be how Netflix provides the movie streaming feed to the Wii.
    • 4 Sign up at the Netflix website for the Streaming Disc. Netflix will send a specially programmed disc to setup the Wii for watching the movies. When the disc arrives Netflix will provide instructions on how to install onto the Wii gaming console.

After using wireless routerand having watch more than 3 netflix movies, i now can not reconnect to netflix or any internet channel on my wii.. I can still play games on wii but not go on line,,will not...


First thing to try is to set up the wireles connection again. Just like you did the first time, but use the "Connection 2" or 'connection 3' option. Let the wii search for access points and pick yours. If it can't find any access point then you know the wii is defective. If it finds access points hopefully yours is on the list. If not then maybe your router is at fault. (Wii Options->wii settings->internet->connection settings->)

I can't get the movies to play. I have tried turning the concole off then back on, software updates, internet connections, and tv connection. netflix said to contact you


In order to use Netflix on a game console the first thing you must ensure is that your device is compatible. The three main compatible consoles are the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii.

If you have one of these systems, follow the instructions for the system below:

PS3:
1) Make sure your console is connected to the internet.

2) Log on to Playstation Network and download the Netflix app.

3) Install the app, then run it.
(NOTE: Playstation Network is currently down for maintenance. More than likely Netflix will not work until it is back up)

Wii:
1) Make sure you have a wireless network set up in your home.

2) Follow the Wii's onscreen instructions to connect to your network.

3) Go to to the "Wii Shop" channel on your Wii and download and install the Netflix app.

4) Run the app and follow the instructions.

Xbox:
1)Make sure your Xbox is connected to the internet

2) Log into Xbox Live with a Gold account.

3) Download and install the Netflix App from the "downloads" section.

4) Run the Netflix app and follow the instructions.

Wireless connection error code 32007


Wireless Router:

  • Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. Be sure to try both channels if the first one you try does not work. This can potentially increase the download speed. For information on accessing your router's settings, click here to select the brand name and model number of your router (if available). (The "Channel" setting is typically found in the "Wireless" section of your router's setup utility.)


  • If adjusting the "Channel" did not work, please review our "Slow Download Times or Errors Received While Connecting" troubleshooting tips by clicking here.


  • Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, please click here and select the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).

  • If you are still receiving this error code, please click here for assistance.
