Question about NetGear RP614 Router
Our netgear RP614 worked perfectly untill a powercut in our home. Now we cannot connect to the router.we have tryed various things to fix this including changing the static ip to dynamic please help us out ASAP p family :[
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!

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.

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...
