This blog is primarily for those who want to make best use of their NetGear WGR614 routers. I bought this router at Chennai, India for Rs. 2000 (its much cheaper now, somewhere in the Rs. 1500 range).
Why did I purchase this router?
One main reason why I purchased this router was that, it was Wifi capable, so that I can wirelessly use my internet. This router, however does not have ADSL capabilities like DLink, UTStarCom, Huawei modems. This is a plain Wifi router, but you can do some fancy stuff, if you can correctly configure it.
Why did you purchase this router, when you get one with ADSL capabilities for an extra Rs. 1000?
Well, there is just one reason for it. I was planning to use it with my YouTelecom Cable modem. An ADSL at that time seemed not a requirement. Also, this would make it ISP agnostic, as any modem that has
- ADSL/Cable modem connection and
- has an ethernet port
Now that I have explained why I bought this router, let me dwelve deep into how to configure this router. Before doing that, I will start explaining what the router can do, and what not:
