Hello

Anthony :

There are never any drivers for a router. However, there are Firmware Upgrades that you can do/perform on the machine. Here is the Link for your unit directly from Netgear.

Hey you failed to answer my qestion. What I need is a driver for the WRG614 Wireless router that will work with Windows 7 64 bit OS.
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 6 years ago.

Again, you do not get any such DRIVERS for any type of routers (UNLESS) you are using a USB Wireless Adapter, or a PCI Wireless Card that you would have to insert on the motherboard.

 

For your Windows 7 Issue, you need to Upgrade the Firmware first, and then set up the router like you normally would, and it should work just fine. You will have to set this up MANUALLY as the CD/Disc you got will not work!

 

 

Thanks!

Notice is says FIRMWARE, nothing about a driver. So please do what I told you, detailed instructions are already provided for you by Netgear, and you'll be just fine!

 

 


Thanks!
