Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router

3 Answers

Can't access settings page

I have a MR814 v2 router which has worked well now for a few years. I have run into a problem since Telstra have changed their access method to cable. I don't know if this co-incidence or not. When I type in 192.168.0.1 I get back the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and thus cannot access the settings page. Yet if I ping that address it sends and returns the relevant packages. I am still able to access other internet pages through the router albeit what appears to be at a slower speed. Help please.

    Thanks for your help. I went through Benimur's power down process and I can now access the settings page. I have software V5.03 from Nov 18 2003 which seems to be the latest. Is there some way of testing the efficiency of the router?

    Having the same problem, can't access the router @192.168.0.1



    Have tried the reset and it won't reset the router either...



    PC directly to router won't talk at all....Tried straight thru and crossover with no luck...



    It's like the DHCP portion is not functioning as you can't release or renew and get a 192..........It just passes through the charter info.

Hi, you may want to try: 1. reset the router to default settings - depress small button at the back of the router. all the leds in front wil blink and/or die. continue pressing on until one of the leds lights up again (might take a couple of seconds. if you can't still log to the web interface, you can try: 2. power off then disconnect all connection to the router. 3. connect your PC directly using a lan cable to one of the 4 lan connectors at the back and to the Lan Card/NIC of your PC; 4. Set your PCLAN to 192.168.0.2;255.255.255.0; 5. Power on the router and try to login to 192.168.0.1 with username: admin & password: password. Normally on power on, the router front leds blinks to indicate power on reset. Leds which remained steadily lit indicates a hardware failure (except for the power led). I have flashed this model with mr814v2_v5_03.img which solved internet slowdown and a couple of other problems. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how it turns up with your router.

The web page of your router cannot be changed by the isp, but what may have changed is your network cards ip address, as thats the only wat the router cannot be reached if you are on a different address route, so check that your card is 192.168.0.X, the last being different to the router. the only other way this may have happened is if you have used an installation disc and it has changed all address so that they are different to what the routers manufactured address is and therefore cannot be altered but is allowing a static ip address or mac addresses for internet connection. The outer may have simply froze out, and you may have to reset the router by way of a pin hole button at the rear of the unit or underneath or firstly try a restart by unplugging it.

I have a Zyxel P660HW-T1 v2 and when trying to use laptop wirelessly, the internet connection keeps dropping. While connected to the router by ethernet cable, internet is fine. All was working fine until...


For that you need to change wireless channel type in router. You can also configure it with below method.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless->wireless channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 then save settings and restart router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Cable modem internet works when directly plugged into desktop, but when run through the router, no connectivity


Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys router to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the PC that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the Router's LEDs
  4. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
  5. Power Cycling
NOTE: Before proceeding, use the computer that can go online when connected to the modem and follow the steps below.
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your ISP. If it can go online, the PC connected to the modem is the one that's registered with the ISP.

kb4682-001_en.png NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Once an active Internet connection is established through the modem, connect the modem and the computer to the router by following the instructions below.
Connecting the Devices Together
After ensuring that you have an active Internet connection, connect the modem to the router's Internet port and the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports. For instructions, click here.
After connecting the devices, check the LEDs by following the instructions below.
Checking the Router's LEDs
The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router. For instructions, click here.
After checking the router's LEDs, configure the router for cable Internet. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Connection
kb4682-002_en.png For Telstra Cable internet users, please contact Telstra to confirm if your internet connection is using DHCP or HB (Heart Beat) signal. There should be no other machine running HB client upon doing this procedure.
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.


NOTE
: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page, click here. If you forgot your IP address, click here. If you forgot your router's password, click here.


Step 2:

When the router's web-based setup page appears, click the drop-down arrow under the Internet Connection Type field and select Automatic Configuration - DHCP.
(a) If you are NOT using Telstra HB, proceed with DHCP setup.

kb4682-003_en.png
NOTE: If you are a Telstra Cable internet user and you're using WRT120N, WRT160N v1, WRT320N or WRT610N, please select Telstra Cable.
(b) If you are using Telstra Cable, proceed with the following setup. Obtain your user name and password from Telstra. Please disable any HB client that might have been previously running on the PC after the router is configured.

kb4682-004_en.png

Step 3:
Click kb4682-005_en.png.

Step 4:
Click MAC Address Clone.



kb4682-006_en.png

Step 5:
Select Enabled and click Clone My PC's MAC.



kb4682-007_en.png




Step 6:

Click kb4682-012_en.png.


Step 7:
Click Status. Check the value of the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're not online, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem. For instructions, click here.




kb3687-005_en.png

kb3687-006_en.png



NOTE:
If the Internet IP Address is all zeroes (0.0.0.0) click kb4682-008_en.png first then click kb4682-009_en.png. If the Internet IP Address is still all zeroes (0.0.0.0) perform a power cycle. For instructions, click here.
If the IP Address starts with 192.168.1.xxx or if it has the same first three numbers (octets) as the router's IP address, change the router's LAN IP address to a different LAN segment. For instructions, click here.
Once the router is configured, perform a power cycle. For instructions, follow the steps below.
Power Cycling

Step 1:
Shutdown the computer.

Step 2:

Unplug the router's power cable.


Step 3:

Unplug the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for 30 seconds.


Step 4:

Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.


Step 5:

Plug in the router's power cable once the modem's lights appear stable.


Step 6:

Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.
NOTE: If you're not online after performing this procedure, you may need to upgrade the firmware of the router.

Netgear MR814 and windows 7 issues


There shouldn't be any issues with the router as a result of Windows 7. The Router does not interact with the computer in such a way as to cause incompatibility like with hardware or software.
That said, what could be causing issues may be out of date WiFi card drivers. Windows 7 has an incredible driver database and I have only come across a handful of things it doesn't detect. But sometimes even with the things it does pick up, a better driver is available.

You should run Windows Update by going to Start (2252758.gif), All Programs, and then Windows Update. If not already set up, you should click change settings on the left and make sure all recommended updates are received like important updates. This way you will get all updates available, including hardware updates.

If this does not seem to improve the situation I will be posting a How To on properly configuring your Netgear router. This will ensure your settings are set to their most optimal settings.

Good Luck,

Connecting XP wireles Client to Netgear MR814 v2


Please see if this things are done:
  1. Power on your wireless device - now a days, laptop have a manual switch aside from software-base application. It usaully a tiny switch witch is mostly located at the edge of your laptop.
  2. You might have entered an invalid key - use notepad to enter your security keys then cut and paste it on your application setup.
  3. Reinstallation of your device driver.
  4. Your router networking is not broadcast so do it manually by supplying SSID and security keys on the setup menu.
If this thing are done correctly, better see your supplier.

If you think this things are helpful, please rate me.

1 of the 2 computers cant get online


Pleaase check if the PC connects when plugged directly to the DSL or cable connection whatever you have without the router in between. That would ensure the functionality of the ethernet card on the other pc.

Lost internet connection via cable modem-router-tower


Alright, start with the basic Gateway IP. http://192.168.0.1 That is what i use to access my router's (yeah, we run just a few more computers than normal people) Anyways, If that doesnt work, then the router has been changed beyond a normal spectrum of Ip configurations. Next step is to recontact Linksys and Let them know directly that the IP Address for accessing the router is not working. Meaning you have no Access to the router at all. Almost all routers use the same base access router ip setup. Its rare to find different unless you are like a few people, who find they need to run at least 2 or more routers on the same internet connection because of too many computers.

Otherwise, follow this link:
