    Are you experiencing the problem with WGT624 model of the router. This router has a known issue with the output voltages not showing correctly. replacing the power supply on them should get you up and working

I need a power adapter for a netgear WGR614 wireless router. what is the output? 12v or 9v?

Most Netgear wireless routers use 12 volt power adapters. The label on the Netgear shows the voltage input required.

I have a Netgear wireless router WGR614 v5 with the AC adapter of 120V-60Hz-16W. I've moved to Europe where the electricity is 220V. Can I use an AC adapter of 220V for this wireless router? Thanks a lot...

Yes, make sure you have a new power supply with the right voltage output, enough current (if the new power supply is rated for more current output, it will be OK), and the right plug with the right polarity.

Check your power supply, some will actually work with a wide range of voltage, some actually go from 100-250VAC. 50Hz-60Hz

I use AOL as my ISP, with British Telecom supplying my telephone line rental. On Friday 2nd my internet connection kept dropping out, and then eventually stopped connecting altogether. My original router...

If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

Dead Netgear jgs516dead Netgear jgs516 . No lights. the inside power supply outputs 1.5V instead on 5v. Delta PS # ADP-40VP Where do I buy a replacement? I am in San Rafael, CA

Well, I believe the product you have carries life time warranty with NETGEAR. Hence, you can get it replaced from NETGEAR. Please log a support case with netgear at

How to set up Power backup using Batteries and an Inverter

Having only two batteries and an inverter is not an UPS (uninterrupted power supply) does not make a backup power system.
How are the batteries charged up and maintained?
What is the output voltage from the inverter?
Does this voltage suit the Netgear wireless router?
I suggest you get a proper UPS and connect the Netgear power adapter to the UPS. There are small UPS units available 350VA which will suit your needs.
I use a larger UPS from APC for my computer and my wireless router and found the unit very reliable.
Check out APC WEB site - click on this link - then your country and select back-UPS ES for home computers :-

Router wont turn on when i plug it into the wall.

That sounds like your power adapter is not working properly.
You can either
  1. replace it if you have one lying around with the same specifications (make sure the small plug fits in the router!)
  2. using a voltmeter to test if there is any power at the output
  3. take your router to an electronic store and let them test the power supply or the router.
The specs for your adapter are:
Input: 110V / 60Hz
Output: 12V / 1Amp

That means:
The voltage should be within +/- 10% of 12V. More is not ok.
Any other adapter has to be able to deliver at least 1 Amp. More is ok.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
