My friend recently purchased a NetGear WGR614 router and has Verizon DSL as his internet provider. I tried setting up the router, but was unsuccessful. 1) After making the connections, the Wireless LED remains unlit; 2) The "Setup Wizard" on the CD won't run. I had to bring up the CDROM drive in Explorer, then click on autorun.exe to get to the initial menu. When I click on Setup, I get an hourglass, then it disappears, then nothing happens. I was able to go back to the original configuration (DSL modem and laptop, no router) with no problem, and was able to access the internet.
So, where do I go from here? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
