Question about NetGear DG834G Router

Connecting my Home Hub to Netgear to have wireless setup

I am trying to connect my Netgear DG834PN to my BT HomeHub - the Netgear to piggyback so that I can have signal for a desk top and a couple of laptops at an office space I have set up at the bottom of the garden.
The problem is I can't have two routers for the one line which I appreciate; Ideally want the laptops to connect to the Home hub as well as a Mini Mac while in the house and the desk-top to the Netgear (as well as the laptops when used in the office area) The distance from home hub to office is some


Hope you can help.

    I'm sorry but I am not too familiar with what I require to do here. I think I am trying a solution called 'Wireless Bridging'.Can you explain further so that I am aware what I am tinkering with? Many thanks.

Try this :

The BT HomeHub (which is the one connected to the Internet) will be the main router. Using Netgear's user interface, set it to join the BT HomeHub's wireless network and disable Netgear's DHCP.

This might not work because your Netgear is a Gateway. What you need to extend wireless signal is an Access Point which is capable of changing to client-mode.

Wireless bridging....

You need a wireless router and a wireless receiver to have 2 networks communicate.

Please see this link - http://img.zdnet.com/techDirectory/WIFIBRDG.GIF

You need to know the wireless settings of the router and once you know it already you need to access the user interface of the wireless bridge and setup the same settings.

You may have to use a computer that is directly connected to the bridge in order for you to access the page of the wireless bridge.

Setting that you need to know...
Wireless Name or SSID
Wireless Password (if there is any)
Wireless MAC address of the router (found on the router page or User Interface)

    Locating the Wii's MAC address: From the Wii Channel menu, select "Wii
    Settings" (the round button on the bottom-left of the screen with "Wii"
    on it). Select "Internet," then "Console Settings." The MAC address of
    the Wii console is displayed on the first line.



    The MAC address settings for this router are located in
    the "Setup Access List " are of the "Wireless" section of the router's set up utility.

If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

Its not an offical part of the homehub, but connect the MP140 and the HomeHub by USB, then on the computer you need to tell the PC that the printer is attached to the homehub rather than the PC. So on windows, start the add new printer wizard, and follow the steps on http://www.wallaceit.co.uk/Hardware/BT-Home-Hub---Use-it-as-a-print-server---Windows-XP-guide/80/article.aspx

Bt home hub setup download


Possible reason would be that BT normally 'lock' their hubs and modems etc so that you can only use them with the BT service. Need to contact BT and 'ask nicely' if they can unlock the hub for you (not 100% confident if they will) failing that you will need to either purchase equipment or use equipment your new supplier issued

Wireless not working from netgear wg311 to a new bt homehub2


Hi Backatya,

Check what kind of security you upgraded BThomehub 2 uses. Since the hub supports more security-types then your adapter does, I suspect an incompatibility there.

You can solve it by connecting through cable and changing security to WEP or WPA (not WPA2).
