One of the best Budget router for home use.

In this video tutorial we are going to see how to setup your Netgear WGR614 for your cable broadband. In this scenario I have show how to setup Netgear WGR614 with Alliance Broadband which is a cable broadband ISP in Kolkata. The setup of Netgear WGR614 is similar for any other ISPs like Wishnet and Meghbela Broadband etc. Netgear WGR614 is one of the best cheapest router for your home use. It comes with 1 WAN and 4 LAN ports and 150 mbps wireless N feature. Its wireless range is quite good for a medium size apartment. Netgear WGR614 also has QOS (Quality of service) feature inbuilt which is a great way to control the amount of bandwidth use for every connected system in your network.

For any queries, suggestions please drop in a comment and I will get back to you ASAP.

          • U should get a reply from ping. First contact ISP and check if their connection is up. If not then double check IP config for ur router.

            Meghbel Srvs Said That Everything Is OK …
            I Also Contact To Netgear … They Also Said That My Configuration Is Ok… What to Do Sir …

          • post a screenshot of your ip configs on ur router.

          • Ashif Hossain

            Please Help Me Sir…..

          • WAN Link is down. Check if WAN Led is on. Plug WAN Cable properly in your router. Others settings are Ok.

          • Ashif Hossain

            So .. U r saying That Router is OK ?
            N The Problem Was In The WAN Cable ?
            But When I am using The Same WAN Cable Without Router the WAN cable Works Perfect …
            So What is The Main Problem ?
            Router Problem ? Or WAN Cable ?

          • May be there is a loose connection with the cable and ur router’s WAN port. Double check it. If not may be wan port is defective.

            hii Srijit..I am looking for a wireless-router that can also store username and password ( other than static IP , DNS & Gateway ) and do the login process for Alliiance/citicable/Manthan etc connections by itself , so that once my router is switched on , internet shall also be on . I don’t want to do login from web browser everytime to turn Internet on . Can you tell me please which wireless routers are able to do this ?

  • Richie Maldo

    I am trying to set up my Netgear N-150 as a wired connection to my desktop that does not have wireless capability. Can you help?

    • Connect a cable from desktop lan port to ur router Lan port.

      • Richie Maldo

        I did. But I’m unsure what to use as the IP address and such. I need the router to connect to a wifi network I already have and serve as an access point for my PC.

        • The IP of pc should be 192.168.1.X and gateway should be ur router IP like Use dns as and

        • So this netgear router acts as an access point?

  • Shounak

    Hi Srijit , I have a Netgear N-150 router. I have followed all these steps , still I am not able to connect

    I did these steps :

    1) In basic settings , gave IP and DNS settings as provided by the WishNet .
    2) Gave MAC address of the laptop ( because somewhere I had read that all cable broadband providers do MAC binding , so we need to give system’s MAC instead of router’s default MAC ).

    Am I missing something ? Any help in this regard is much appreciated.

    Hi Srijit,
    Thanks for posting this useful video. However, I am getting stuck at a very basic step during configuration.
    I use Alliance broadband for connection. I have my IP config provided by my ISP in my laptop.
    While trying to configure my router (WNR612), I am connecting my ISP’s internet wire in the WAN port of the router and using a different LAN wire to connect the router with the same laptop.
    After doing all, when I am typing or, I am not able to get the login page. I am getting multiple errors at multiple time – either DHCP errors or page cannot be displayed.
    Please help.

    – Mayukh

      Hi Srijit,
      I am able to configure it properly somehow. However, did not do anything new. Somehow it happened.
      Hence, do not need any further help.

    I am using Wishnet and ASUS router. My internet works fine connecting directly to my computer. When I connect it to the router then only Wishnet login page opens fine, after logging in no other website will open. I have correctly configured the ISP settings such as IP,subnet mask,DNS to the router.. Help!!

    Hi, I am using the same router as shown in the video – N150 WGR614
    I recently increased the broadband speed to 40Mbps, now when i connect directly through ethernet cable(router not involved) it shows 40mbps, but on wifi it does not go beyond 20mbps.
    this router should be able to support speeds upto 150Mbps right?

    anything that i am missing on?
