Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Wireless router signal

I have a netgear wireless router upstairs and the computer that is directly below downstairs will not hold a signal. It seems to be recognizing the signal and is strong at points. I also have a laptop that will work with the router anywhere in the house. We have uninstalled and reinstaled a few times.

I suggest that you move the router around to find the strongest signal for you computer or if your computer has a small antennae try moving that fround for the best signal

I have netgear wgr614 upstairs my laptop downstairs loads pages VERY slowly what can I do


Verify that it is indeed a wifi signal problem by moving the laptop upstairs temporarily.

If this fixes the problem, you're getting poor wifi signal downstairs. Not much you can do with the elements at hand. So try adding another element: install a wifi signal repeater (around US$ 25) somewhere in the middle. Or you can run a cable (or use Powerline Ethernet - around US$ 100) to downstairs, and there install a wifi access point (US$ 30-60). Or directly connect the laptop to the newly installed network wire.

If the problem isn't fixed, you have some other problem on the laptop: most likely a faulty network configuration. Verify against whatever PC you have upstairs; they should have identical configurations except their IP address (if fixed instead of DHCP).

Just to be on the safe side verify the laptop is properly operating and immune from virus and malware. Not all slowdowns are the system's fault.

Happy navigation!

Is your ReplayTV and Xbox configured to use DHCP? If not, you may need to configure static IP addresses for each of them.

No connectivity to 2nd desktop or laptop - although worked before


Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).

1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)

If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.

Low signal from my wireless adaptor / router


Have you tried connecting the laptop in a different wireless network? Try changing the channel in your router and you may also upgrade the firmware of your router.

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)

Hooking up a 2nd computer upstairs with the router downstairs.


In order to setup a second computer with your router you need to first make certain that you have the following:

The second PC must have a wireless adapter. Determine if you have security setup for your network. Meaning determine if you have a wep, wpa, etc. setup. This is a security Hexidecimal encryption that allows only the administrator (you) of the network the ability to place other devices onto your network. You then need to access the web-based tool that allows you to setup and or change settings. Any more questions please feel free to ask I could walk you through it step by step.
