Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an old Netgear wireless router (MR814v2) that I am trying to use with a new laptop which has Vista loaded on it. There is no setup instructions with the CD I have from Netgear for installation on Vista. The PC does not recognize this router when I open up the wireless connections. Will an internal G wireless card recognize a B router? How do I install this device? Thanks.

Hook directly to the router hard wire. Go to configuration page for router and look at wireless security settings. it will show you Wep or some other encryption technique. It will also give you a place to view or change your wireless key. Once you do that write the key down and then connect wirelessly.

My HP laptop won't connect to my NETGEAR WGR614v7 router


What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.

Additional FAQs that might be helpful are at http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2589. That page has a link to setting up XP for wireless networking as well.

Wireless connection problem with the MR814v2


Try accessing the router by using the webpage address: ie linksys is: 192.168.1.1

and disable the security settings and save the setting and then try it on the other computers. If that doesn't work then see if there is a reset button on the back of the router. Push it in for a few seconds and then search for the wireless network which should be the routers name with a strong signal. If it still doesn't work then maybe the wireless portion of the router is going bad.

Hope this helps

Unable to install Netgear wireless router


This does not seem to be a problem with your router, rather with the network adapter in your laptop.
  1. Go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager -> Network adapters.
  2. Click the "+" sign to make it "-".
  3. What is listed? DO you see your wireless network adapter? If you see a yellow "!" or a red "x", that means it is not properly installed. Try to reinstall the driver.
If you need help with that, let me know. In that case I would need to know make and model of your computer.

Also: you don't have to install any software to connect to your router. This software is simply a help to setup the router. You can always type "www.routerlogin.com" in the address bar of your web browser and manage your router from there.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Netgear Wireless router MR814v2


the problem is that the router is not issuing the DHCP address, put in a hard-coded address such as 192.168.0.5/255.255.255.0 with a gateway of 192.168.0.1 and then manually add the DNS server address of the IPS as well and it will kick into life
