Default Unable to login to WiFi console page

I have an old ADSL modem router - Aztech DSL600EU and connected to Netgear Wireless Router WGR614 v4 which I haven't use it for quite some time.

When I'm trying to get both connected, I found that I couldn't establish Internet connection via WiFi if I connect the network cable to the Ethernet port that supposed to be from modem to the wireless router.

However, if I connect the network cable to any of 4 Ethernet port (which are meant for computers connected using network cable and not wireless), I could access the Internet.

Another thing, I realized that I couldn't access to the console web page of my Wireless Router. I can only access to the web page of my modem router using the local IP 192.168.2.1. The IP for the Wireless Router by default is 192.168.0.1 and I also has been trying numerous IPs but to no avail.

Please advise.

Thank you.

"When I'm trying to get both connected, I found that I couldn't establish Internet connection via WiFi if I connect the network cable to the Ethernet port that supposed to be from modem to the wireless router."

That is LAN port from modem/router to WAN port Netgear router.
You would need to set up the Netgear with a static address on the WAN port for this to work.

"However, if I connect the network cable to any of 4 Ethernet port (which are meant for computers connected using network cable and not wireless), I could access the Internet."

That is LAN port to LAN port and in this case the Netgear is acting as a wireless switch and it is advisable to disable one of the DHCP servers. See the "How To" Connecting 2 routers together and staying on the same subnet.

"Another thing, I realized that I couldn't access to the console web page of my Wireless Router. I can only access to the web page of my modem router using the local IP 192.168.2.1. The IP for the Wireless Router by default is 192.168.0.1 and I also has been trying numerous IPs but to no avail."

Because the Netgear is acting as a wireless switch the IP address of 192.168.0.1 is not on the same subnet as the rest of the network and hence you cannot access it from that subnet. You could give it an address of 192.168.2.2 providing it is not in the DHCP pool from the modem/router.
See the "How To" for an example.

Hi again,

I'm still unable to access the management console of my wireless router.
I've done these things:

1. Unplug the network cable from the ADSL modem router and link my computer to any of the 4 LAN ports of the wireless router while my wireless adapter being disabled.
2. Disable the DHCP and manually set my ADSL modem router to 192.168.2.3 and maintain the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

The thing is, I still couldn't configure the wireless router so that I could change it to either DHCP (ADSL set to DHCP) or manually set.

Please advise.

Thanks.

1.Connect your computer to your DSL600.
2.Set it's IP address to 192.168.2.1 Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
3.Enable the DHCP server.
a. Give it a start IP of 192.168.2.20
b. Give it an end IP of 192.168.2.30
4. Disconnect your computer from the DSL600.
5.Reset your WGR614 using the reset button.
6.Connect your computer to one of the LAN ports of the WGR614 and try to log in to 192.168.0.1
if it fails to connect or give you an IP address and you are using Win XP
Goto start-->run--> type cmd press enter
type ipconfig /release press enter
type ipconfig /renew press enter
Try logging in to the WGR614 again
7.When logged in go to the Advanced Heading of the main menu.
8.Change the IP address to 192.168.2.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
9.Uncheck the "use router as a DHCP Server" box.
10.Disconnect your computer from the WGR614.
11.Connect the LAN(Ethernet) port of the DSL600 to one of the LAN ports of the WGR614.

Hi Rob02,

I've managed to changed the IP address and the IP range for the DSL600EU.
I also managed to access the management console of the WGR614 after reset it. However, when I tried to change the IP and disable the DHCP for the wireless router, I encountered this error message.

Please refer to the screenshots of the configuration and the error:



Thanks!

What firmware version are you using in the WGR614V4? If not 5.0_7 you need to upgrade.

If my memory serves me correctly, I never update my firmware ever since I bought it. I'll update the firmware first and get back to you soon.

Thanks!

Hi Rob02,

Thank you so much! I've done it! The old firmware caused me the problem. I managed to update and removed the old backup.
Now running on the latest firmware. FYI, now I can use the WAN to LAN port, so I don't have to plug the cable from modem Ethernet to the WiFi LAN port, just use the WAN port will do

Cheers!
