Question about NetGear DG834G Router

Connecting a PC with trendnet wireless AP to DG834G

I have a 834g wireless router which has my XBOX 360 connected to one of the ethernet ports, I have my main PC which connects via a usb wireless adapter, all work fine (except my pc wont see my xbox and wont even ping it, although both on same subnet and network range, and both connect to internet with no problems - but no streaming from PC to 360 using WMP 11 - ideas?). I have a Trendnet 410APB wireless access point which I have connected to another PC in the same room, but cant get it set up so the attached PC can get onto the wireless network through the 834G.

    Thanks for that, will try SP3. The download for streaming PC to xbox 360 link you provided is Windows Media Player 11, already have it, sharing turned on in options etc. - it worked fine when I had PC and 360 connected via ethernet through a 4 port switch, but just can't get anything since I put in the wireless router.
    As for the trendnet, its just plugged into an old PC that has no wireless adapter of any kind, So I thought I could use the AP in either bridging or repeater mode (there are options for both in the advance setup screens of the 410APB, and I just upgraded the Netgear DG834Gv3 to the newest firware which adds options for repeater and bridged modes) , but I dont know which is the correct mode and am totally lost! I was a PC engineer for many years, have looked after large wired networks, VPN, remote access etc, and can normally work most things out, but just really seem to have hit a blind spot with wireless APs, repeaters. bridging stations etc!

You need service pack 3 as this sees any connected media that can be accessed from the programmes menu>accesories>system tools or download programme from here to set up xbox/pc streaming.

As for the Trendnet ensure that the pc it fitted to is not set to dial a connection, open IE and then tools>internet options>connections tab and select never dial a connection or it's greyed out.

Then in the properties of your wireless adapter select the TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically'.

How do I connect the second computer to the internet ?


If your connecting a second wired computer , all you need to do is plug an ethernet cable on ethernet port of your computer and the other end should go to any of the available ports in the back of your router.

If you connecting a wireless computer. You just have to look for the wireless icon, its usually seen on the bottom right hand corner.
Right click on the wireless icon and click view available network,
Highlight your network name and connect.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

Connect to the Router,
Under the Security tab, select Services, then add, give it the name XBOX TCP/UDP, set start port as 3074 and end port as 3074, set type as TCP/UDP, click apply/ok. Do this again, giving it the name XBOX UDP, start port 88, end port 88, type UDP, then apply settings.

Now go to Firewall under the Configuration tab, under incoming click add, now select the service XBOX UDP/TCP from the drop down menu. select forward to specific IP address or similar and type in your Xbox's IP address e.g. 192.168.1.5, click log never, then apply ok. Do the same for XBOX UDP and your again click apply. That's it! you've successfully opened the necessary ports on your Router and told your Router that any incoming info on those ports should be sent to your Xbox.

Have lost/can't remember the security code to wirelessly connect to my netgear DG 834G


Paul.

Can you connect to the router via ethernet?

If so assuming you havent changed the routers address connecting to 192.168.0.1 from your web browser should get you into your routers admin page.

Once you have entered the user name and password click the Wireless link from teh main menu where you will be able to see the relevent key and or change it if required.

If you need the manuals you can download from here.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.

Connecting two laptops using Netgear 834G


If its just a router and not a modem router, go into the routers settings and make sure DHCP is enabled to give each pc an automatic IP address and ensure wireless is enabled if using wireless adapters. Next go to the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP select properties and ensure obtain IP address automatically is ticked. You must also set up using the XP network wizard and ensure file and printer sharing is set up through both pc's.
