Hi, there, I have a netgear router, product WGR614v9. I tried upgrading my firmware the other day, not sure if I was successful. Anyways, I had to reset it, since I couldnt' get a connection.

Now, I tried logging into my router to change the settings so it would be secured, but each time I tried, it doesn't want to work, and I had to reset it again. What can I do?

Also, if you know, what about DD-WRT(I think that's what you call it) firmware upgrade?

Thank you for any help you can give me!!!

What happens when you try to log into the admin interface of the router? "it doesn't want to work" is not a sufficient description of the problem.
If you are able to log into the router admin but unable to get an internet connection it might be a simple matter of needing to clone your PC's MAC address in the router so that your modem recognizes the router as a legitimate client.

Hi, there, Richard59, and thank you for your response.

Well, what I mean by "it doesn't want to work" is, when I log into my router, there are items I can pick, and one of those is called "Wireless Settings". There it looks like I can change the router name, put in a password & choose the security setting. I inputted those items, but when I try to "Apply" them, it loses the connection, and doesn't want to connect to the new name I give it.

Basically, that is what happened. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Changes need to be done using a wired connection rather than wireless.
