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.

dear sir i want to use my netgear wgr614 router as access point. please give me suggestion how can i do that

In Your web browser type in,it will ask you for a user name and password,user name is admin and password is password,once you enter the netgear setup utility find the section that ask you if you would like to use as an access point,check it,save changes-you will have to download the user manual on detailed step by step instructions from netgears website in order for it to work-i would download the user manual before you do anything at all and read first what has to be done-Good Luck-Access points are not easy to configure and must be connected via an ethernet cable when doing the initial setup-Have Fun

how to set a password for netgear

Netgear WGR614 54Mbps Wireless Router
  1. Begin setup of your Netgear Wireless Router by first reading the instructions in the included manual, and following their guidelines for plugging in and initializing the access point. The first few steps in this guide should coincide with the information found in the manual, however we will follow up with important information on how to secure your wireless access point.
  2. After powering up the router, use an ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the ports on it marked 1 through 4. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and typehttp:// into the address bar and press enter. This will take you to the Netgear Smart Wizard welcome page, click OK to begin the configuration. The router will attempt to detect the type of connection you have and the next message you receive should be Dynamic IP (DHCP) Detected, click Next once you see this.
  3. Next you will enable the wireless capability of your router. In the dropdown box for the region where you are located select United States from the list. On this screen you should also change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from its default value to something unique so that your Base Station will not be confused with another. Click Next.
  4. You should now see a message confirming that your connection is working and wireless is enabled. However, your are not secured yet. Read the notes and click Done. Then direct your browser tohttp://www.routerlogin.net to continue the configuration. A window will pop up prompting you for your login and password, enter admin for the username and password for the password, then click OK.
