Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Laptops lose router signal constantly

We have this router and both our laptops are constantly becoming disconnected from the Internet (even when they are right next to it). There are no cordless phones or microwaves in the vicinity. I even tried changing from "Auto" channel to Channel 1, to no avail. Any tips?

    Thanks -- will give that a try and see how it goes. After reading your suggestion, I searched the Web on the router name and "reset" and sure enough, it appears this particular router requires occasional hard resets. Thank you very much.

Losing connectivity while stationary


2 issues tp look at:
1. signal is marginal - move closer to router and see if it improves
2. interference from other networks. Change the channel the router is using to one not being used by a close network. A program like inSSIDer will give u a view of the signals around u.

Belkin router is getting disconnect in every 2minutes on my tablet pc


How many devices are connected to the wireless? Are you moving about when you lose the signal? Is the wireless Secured? If you have other computers/laptops connected do they lose signal? Many thing will cause loss of a signal, much like a cell phone.

Wifi wont connect and some other


well, the signal, may be good, but if theirs a huge amount of people on the same acess point, things get messy. if u have alot of people using the same network, the internet becomes laggy, and even if u have a good signal, the internet can be very laggy, and lose connection alot, it depends on the amount of people using the same network, so at home u have only u and ur family connected, at school more people might be connected to the network than at home.

Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

  • If you bypass the router and connects your computer directly to the your DSL modem, do you have a stable Internet connection in your computer?
  • If you do, you may reset and reconfigure your Belkin router.
  • You may also do a firmware upgrade on your router.

Hope this helps!

Netgear wireless adapter


When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
