Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
This is most likely due to the "internet box" (modem) still having the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the device that was previously connected the modem in NVRAM.
In order to clear this old MAC address, the easiest thing to do is to unplug the power cable from the modem for 15 to 20 minutes. This allows the NVRAM in the modem to clear and makes it able to accept the new MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged from the power for 15 to 20 minutes, plug the Ethernet cable of the router into the modem and plug the power cord back in to the modem. After the modem syncs back up to the network, it should add the MAC address of the WRT54GL router to its NVRAM and assign it an IP address. This should allow the router to connect your systems to the Internet.
Please be sure to rate my answer as a 3 or 4 thumbs up if you found it helpful. The 1 and 2 thumbs-up are like saying "didn't really address the problem" and "wasn't the best solution"
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!
