My netgear dg834 wired router ceased to get an ADSL connection for no apparent reason? The ADSL connection, filter and cabling all work (as I've tried with a modem). Hmmm?

I'd try a hard reset by unplugging the router, holding in the reset button for 30 seconds, while you plug the router in and see if you can get it going again. If not its time for a new one.

    I like the Linksys myself. Seems more reliable and very easy to setup. You may also want to consider a wireless for future adventures.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Hi,

Can you supply more detail of your network setup? You have a broadband modem, a seperate router and the PC.

For this setup cabling should be ....

1. Phone Socket (Pref. Master socket) to ADSL socket on modem

2. Modem LAN socket to Router WAN socket

3. Router LAN socket to PC Ethernet socket

Usually in this configuration you will have to switch off DHCP on either the modem or the router as they may both be trying to supply IP addresses to your PC. I would suggest disabling DHCP on the router and leaving the ADSL modem to supply IP addresses. If you do this you will have to setup the Router with a valid fixed IP.

Have fun!

Cheers,
Ripface.

No pc connection light on netgear d834g router/modem (wired connectio)


the two reasons are
1. the cable might be damaged. if so then you cannot get the signal.
2. the light might be gone.

you can check these two errors with the following

start->run->cmd
ping <gateway's ip address> -t

if you get reply then the cable is ok and light gone.
if you don't get reply then your cable might be gone.

Can't enable LAN or Wireless Ntwk Connections


Hello,
I believe that all you really had to do was just unplug the router for a few seconds then reboot it and try again to connect to it. I've a few routers that for no apparent reason just go off-line wirelessly and that would fix it. You also could just check it's settings to verify it is configured correctly before rebooting it.

Formatting your hard drive was a bit in the wrong direction and a needless process.

Good Luck

I have recently aquired a router and a Wireless PCI Card. Although I am automatically on the internet when I boot up my Computer,I keep getting a message on screen that I have limited or no conectivity....


the limited connectivity means that your router is not connected wirelessly probably because you have not entered the correct passkey, or it's still giving your lan RJ45 network cable the ip address and this is why you are still connected to the net.

If you are on a Netgear modem/router as i suppose you are if it's from sky, you should connect the RJ11 phone line cable into the router leading to a broadband filter, then connect the filter to your phone socket.

There should be no wires between your pc and the router, so take out the wire that is connected to the router (RJ45), which you should have used to set the router up coming from your onboard wired network card.

You will now be connected only via wireless connection, right click on the wireless network icon in your taskbar, click show all connections and then click on your SKY****, whatever it is and then you will need to enter the WPA-PSK security passkey which is with your Sky paperwork or on the router itself.

silly question maybe, but have you installed a line filter in the telephone socket where the phone is plugged in, or try moving the phone or router elsewhere as there may be interference if they are on the same MHZ channel
