Question about NetGear WGR614 Router
I have an XBOX 1 and want to upgrade the bridge I have been using. I have used the Linksys WET11 but now want to upgrade to a faster speed Bridge.
I have a spare Netgear Router WGR614 v6 that I am lead to think can be made to work as a bridge. I need some hand holding to set it up and get it working on my Xbox and wireless network.
Any help is appreciated.
I'll take a stab at this. It's a bit difficult because I don't know what your level of expertise is. You're actually using the Netgear wireless ROUTER not a bridge. Your ISP can use a couple of methods to give you service. DSL companies like Verizon probably use PPPoE which require you to login and provide a password and VZ is notorious for closing down port 25.
O.K. Did I mention I don't like them very much? Anyway, I'm going to give you a link to Netgear's excellent web site for configuring a router and the XBOX connection. This is the whole list of v6 compatible instructions. Note the very bottom link to use Netgear routers with XBOX.
Note under the Troubleshooting topic that there is a configuration and two setup files, depending on what you're connecting to, and some tips on what to do if it doesn't work.
It's not as bad as it looks.
