I want to say thank you to Tom Smith. My problem was basically that at some point in the morning (while I was online) the power went out and it even seemed to kill my power surge power bar. This has never happened before even though I've had several losses in power. After messing with cycling, resetting, replugging, I found that my Netgear Router would acknowledge internet connection, power LED on, but the wireless light would not stay lit after the test.

Thank god for google. I found this website and tried this solution and after a little difficulty, it worked.

Please note, that after you hit the reset, you might want to shut everything down, and turn everything on/reconnect per Netgear's advised order (1) cable internet box, wait 2 minutes (2) router, wait 1 minute, and (3) your computer.

After I did this, I had to redo all the initial settings and reset up my wireless but I'm no longer stuck to my cable!

    Oh, I forgot to say, and this may be important. When I reset my netgear router, the wireless light DID NOT come back on. It still looked broken. But I found somewhere on the internet saying that you needed to be plugged into the router to set up your wireless first.

    I found a cable and plugged it in, and after restarting everything, I was able to go through the initial router setup steps and the wireless came back on. Then I was able to setup my network.

How is it not working? You get limited or no connectivity or it isn't functioning at all. Firstly, let's do a power cycle. Push the reset button for 5 seconds, unplug for 45 seconds, and reset 5 seconds, and unplug for 45 seconds. If that doesn't work try a hard reset. Alright, it's time to do a hard reset, this will rest all your passwords, Take a Pen or a pin, push the pin the the reset hole for 45 seconds, Uplug the modem for 1 minute, reset hole for 30 seconds, unplug for 30 seconds, and it should be hard resetted also power cycle.

    And yet you give me a negative feedback? Odd, what not.
    And just a little more info, the powercut caused a inbalance of electricity flow and usually your router is operating because your cable or dsl modem, is sending information to the Router and when the inbalance of current causes it to confuse the router.

Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...

Good luck, and have a great day...

I am currently using a wired Netgear RP614v4 Web Safe Router. I am thinking about purchasing a HTC smart phone that has WiFi connection. Would it be possible to purchase the WN802T v2 and plug it...


Yes you can piggyback off of your current router without any repercussions however it seems a bit un-necessary and a waste of power consumption (however minor it is) the WN802T also has the ability to wire itself to your desktop and are still behind a firewall equally as safe as the Netgear if not more so...

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.


The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.

Twice after using Google's gmail video chat with our RP614, our internet access stopped. I had to recycle the power on the RP614 each time. Is this a known issue?


I can't think of a connection between the two events, esp if it happened only twice. I own a similar Netgear router (wi-fi tho and not DSL), and find it very reliable.
