Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

2 Answers

Ethernet connection works but can't go wireless

I am able to connect to the net with just the modem and an ethernet cable. However, I have trouble switching to a wireless connection with a wireless router. The PC detects the NETGEAR wireless network and is able to connect to it. I am also able to access the router configuration page ( that's all it can do. On the router configuration page (, when I click on the "router status" it says that it is "trying to connect to server". I have gone through netgear's troubleshooting help but nothing seems to work. Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer any kind of help.

Depending on the model that whether it is v5 or v6 . you have to make sure that wireless option should be selected , which is advance wireless setting's: make sure that atleast for the time being there should be no mac filtering or wep/wpa enabeled on router : then do the power cycle of network . again make sure that on computer no firewall or anti virus is enabeled. if this does not works then hard reset the router and reconfigure it again .

This is your router trying to connect to the modem, ensure that the routers wireless connection is enabled and see if your router when you access it is giving your pc an ip address. Make sure DHCP is enabled for automatic ip address allocation. Run this programme, click Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. This will flush any old addresses given by the modem.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.

Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

I have the RCA DCM425C cable modem and also Vonage phone service. So my modem ethernet connects to my Vonage internet. I would like to go wireless in my house. How would I do this?

You would connect from the output of the Vonage modem to the wireless router and then from the wireless router you can connect Ethernet to your desktop if you have one and then anything else can run off of the wireless.


get a wireless router / cable modem combo provided by companies such as netgear then you would connect the Vonage to the router through one of the available Ethernet ports and any other Ethernet connections to the router as well and anything else wireless would work wireless.

Plug the ethernet net cord into the arris ethernet port. plug the other end into the router where it says "internet"

Plug a ethernet cable from one of the router ports to the computer.

First start up the arris modem, then power up the router, then start the computer.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425

First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.

Make sure your modem or router is compatible with XBOX. I think Microsoft has a lost of working modems and routers. If this is all clear, connect the eth.cable to the modem/router. Power up the modem FIRST then the xbox. All this without any cd/dvd in the tray.
Usually as simple as that...

You can only use the USB connection or the ethernet connection to get it work.  It won't work on both.
