Problem w/ WNR834B router and Open iConnectAccess621 modem
Hi, I bought the stated wireless router today and connected it with my Asus laptop running Vista Ultimate. After plugging in and running setup, it would get to the stage that said "now make sure both are turned on, plugged in as show in diagram and then press ok" or something like that, so I pressed ok, and it errored to "cannot find connection".
I moved/retried the cords as it said, but haven't got any results :<
I tried manually configuring the modem before it entered the wireless router, but it just keeps getting stuck like my broadband modem isnt sending a signal at all to my router! help :<

If you previously had your computer connect to the modem, and are now trying to plug in the router, you'll probably have to clone your pc's MAC Address. See one of my first posts in my username account history for a more detailed process. Steven

Please make sure that the router and the not placed need to any electromaganetic source or any heat source. The modem/router should be placed in well ventilated area and if possible on a wooden surface. The wireless hangs becouse the modem/router gets heated up.
1, connect your wireless router with cable to your laptop, 2. Login into your Asus-WL520gu and setup your wireless how you want it to run." do not bother with putting your username settings in there" 3. In your Asus-WL-520gu after setting up your wireless turn the DHCP off in it. 4. Now connect the cable that you have connected to your laptop to your router instead of your laptop. ""You should now be able to connect to the wireless with your settings. and connect anything ells you want to the other 4 ports on the back of you wireless router"" note: do not connect anything to the WAN port as it is used for DSL modems; and not Routers with ADSL modem. when connecting a router to a router - the one that is connecting you to the internet needs DHCP turned on because it is the one that will be giving you IPs and Gateway settings - the other router such as wireless router after setting it up needs its DHCP turned off - other wise you will have 2 routers trying to do the same thing with ip's and gateways. And you should never connect a modem router to the WAN port as it is a modem router and NOT just a DSL-modem. The WAN port is intended for DSL-modems only. Not only consumers but also many technicians make that mistake
If you open your Network window from the start menu, at the top you will see "Add a wireless device". Follow the instructions and this should get your wireless connection with WEP key add. (When you select your router, you will need the WEP key at hand. You can get this by going to the web page of your routers IP address.) Good Luck.
If you have the correct wireless security and the laptop wont connect wirelessly, the best thing that you can do here is to access the router setup page and change some wireless settings on the router like the wireless channel , I advice you set the wireless channel to 11 then after that try to connect your laptop again to the wireless network and by the way change also the SSID or wireless network name of the router....
