I have a Netgear WGR614 v5 router and Verizon DSL. I cannot connect to the internet, unless I login to the router's Smart Wizard and go into "Router Status" --> "Connection Status" and select the "Connect" button.
I have configured...
- Idle Timeout=0
I've powered down everything (modem, router, PC's), and powered up each starting with the modem, then the router, then the PC. But still no connection. Only when I manually connect via the router's Smart Wizard utility is the internet available.
The firmware version (1.0.7_1.0.6) that was on the router when I bought it was the latest available, but I even re-loaded it when I couldn't think of anything else. This too did not make a difference.
Anyone have any ideas? Is there a config setting that I may have missed? At this point, I would even settle for a workaround. I need to set this up so that my kids can use it, and I don't want them logging into and messing with the Smart Wizard.
Any help would be appreciated.
