Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Configuration page won't come up

I was given a NetGear WGR614 router by a friend. The friend got it for free from someone else. The original owner might have tried to do a firmware update to the router and it stopped working. That's possibly why it was given away free 2 times. Now I'm trying to set up the router myself.

I plugged in the power supply of the router and attached it to my laptop. I then plugged the ethernet cable from my laptop into all 4 of the LAN ports in the router. Each port LED lit up when plugged into. On the laptop I typed both:

I cannot get to the configuration page. I've tried the reset button on the back several times (holding it in for 30 seconds) and it still doesn't come up. I've tried the above procedures with the WAN port unattached to anything, and also with the WAN port connected to one of the LAN ports on the router that I want to extend to another room with the WGR614. Nothing works. I haven't tried the WAN port connected to my DSL modem's port but I doubt that will make a difference.

Since I am not the original warrantied owner NetGear's online help is unavailable to me. Any ideas on how to get the config page to come up?

By default the ip address should be set to also by default the username is admin, and the password is password. if still cannot access the router page, reset it again by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds , there's a possibility that the router is bad already because of the firmware upgrade..

Hope that helps........

Sometimes this happens especially if youve tried to connect via a different pc, whilst connected, press the reset button on the router, let it start up then turn it off , check that your ethernet connection is set to obtain ip address automatically in the TCP/IP settings and reboot pc

Turn router back on whilst pc is rebooting and then it should detect you pc and when typing in the the page should appear

How do I access my router? I type in and all I get is search results not the router itself. I have been able to do this in the past. Thanks

I understand that you are unable to access the configuration page of the router WGR614. Please perform the below task on your computer connected to the router:

A. Click on Start then go to Programs and go to Accessories and open Command Prompt.
B. In Command Prompt window, type in 'ipconfig' and press 'Enter'. Note down the IP Address, Subnet mask & Default Gateway here.

Please try to access the configuration page of the router using the address that you got in the 'Default Gateway'.

Hope this allows you to resolve the issue. Please revert back for any further clarification.

I installed a netgear WGr614V6 but while trying to connect to the net, it requires a password, the given user admin and password does nor work , how to reset password

The username and password given to you is for the router itself, to which is required to enter the configuration page. As for the username and password needed to access the internet is given to you by the ISP(Internet Service Provider), in which case, you should contact their customer service and request it.

Can't chang NAT type from strict to open

Read User Manual to be sure that user/pass and default ip address for your router correct. And check if your computer received valid ip from Router. Usual check: 1. Restart computer. 2. Set IP address to automatic. 3. Start > Run.. > cmd.exe > ipconfig find IPaddress and Gateway. is it 192.168.1.x ? 4. ping -t <gateway>
If there are reponses, you good to go for the router configuration.

I am given a set up error while trying to configure netgear WGR614. Below is the message The router is setup with the static IP values read from the computer. However, there is no Internet connection with...

You need to contact your Internet Service Provider to obtain the setup configuration for the cable or DSL modem. A LAN cable is then connected from the modem to the Internet LAN port on the wireless router.
Normally you do not set a static IP address on the router, and the wireless card should be set to obtain an IP address automatically.
If you still have problems, give me details of what configuration steps you have carried out on the router and the wireless card together with the error messages.

A friend gave me his router to instal to my

You should do a factory reset using the reset button on the back using a paperclip.

Then you should insert the cd that your friend should also have given you (he didnt Hmm) if not you open an internet explorer page while hooked up (by wire) to the router and type into the address bar on most netgear

The username is admin
and the password is 1234

From there you can use the setting your ISP gives you and also set wireless up.

First have you assured through the documentation that the default address for the configuration is Second some routers require a secure connection to get to the configuration such as Third you can check to see if someone changed the gateway address by using the Command Prompt or the DOS Prompt and typing ipconfig and pressing enter. Look for the default gateway address it will probably be 192.168.?.? if it was changed and the 192.168.? part will match the IP Address assigned to the machine. If you still cannot get access to the configuration AND YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO COMPLETELY CONFIGURE YOUR ROUTER; check out the users guide for instructions for resetting the router's contents -- this will WIPE OUT THE ENTIRE CONFIGURATION IN YOUR ROUTER and reset the routers configuration to the factory defaults. THIS COULD WIPE OUT USERID AND PASSWORD SETTINGS THAT ALLOW THE ROUTER TO ACCESS THE INTERNET. Only consider reset on the router if you fully understand what you are doing and how to reconfigure the router appropriately.
