Had similar problem. with DSL the supplied modem acts as a router itself. Therefore, you have a router trying to reroute another router and it doesn't work. I bought a 5 position switch , connected my computers and everything works OK to this day.

Try to reset your router first by Pressing the reset button on the back for about 15 seconds let go then pull out the power. After that plug the power back in then try to set it up according to the directions at the link below. If after the reset you are still not able to access the 192.168.1.1 Turn off the modem first then turn off and on the router and restart your computer but leave the modem off. If youa re able to access the router page. Chagne the local or router IP on the setup page as your modem might be on the same IP. this is only applicable if you are on DSL. If on cable you just have to reset and follow the directions at the link below for Cable.

Can I connect my Pocket WI FI to Router with USB Port so that I can share my Internet connection to my other computers.


Pocket WI-FI? Doesn't that mean that it gives wireless internet? Or is it that all your computers are not WI-FI capable? If your computer have wireless connection, all you have to do is connect your computers to the pocket WI-FI. And yes, you can use the router as a repeater, but only if the router have that capability? Just Google how to use a router as a wireless repeater and it should give you a few options.

I cant access facebook, INTERNET displays that 'web page cannot be displayed'


There are many reasons that Internet Explorer could be encountering this issue. Some examples are connectivity to your ISP, a firewall blocking your connection, or your networking device not functioning properly. Here are some things that you can try:
Method 1: Run the Network Diagnostics tool in Internet Explorer
1. Start Internet Explorer, and then try to access the Web page that is displaying the error message.
2. On the page that displays an Internet Explorer error message, click the Diagnose Connection Problems link. The Network Diagnostics tool will run. When the tool has finished running, it will report one of the following results:
    • It was unable to find a problem.
    • It has detected a problem. Additionally, the tool will provide guidance about the next steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.
3. Click IP Address, and note the IP Address. You may need it for future troubleshooting.
4. Follow the steps in the Network Diagnostics tool to fix any connection problems.
5. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 2: Reset the modem or the router
1. Disconnect the cable that connects the computer to the modem.
2. Turn off the modem and the router.
Note: If the modem or the router does not have a power switch, disconnect the power to the modem or to the router.
3. Restart the computer.
4. After your computer has restarted, turn on the modem or the router, connect the cable from the computer to the modem or the router, and restart the computer.
5. Make sure that all network cables are securely connected.
6. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 3: Use the Delete Browsing History feature
If resetting the modem or the router did not resolve the problem, deleting your browsing history might help. Follow these steps to remove your temporary Internet files, history, and form data:
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Safety button, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. Select the check box next to each category of information you want to delete.
4. Select the Preserve Favorites website data check box if you do not want to delete the cookies and files associated with websites in your Favorites list.
5. Click Delete. (This could take awhile if you have a lot of files and history.)
6. Close Internet Explorer, start Internet Explorer again, and then try to access the Web page.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 4: Use the Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) mode
1. To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If this resolves the issue, follow these steps to isolate the browser add-on that is causing the issue:

  1. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage add-ons.
  3. Click an add-on in the Name list, and then click Disable.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you identify the add-on that is causing the issue.

Hello i have reset my router and now cannot reconnect to The internet i have no idea what the username/ passwords ate


From my understanding you have lost or forgotten your wireless password and or router login settings. You are able to reset this to factory default by locating the reset pin in the back. Once this is located you are going to want to grab a pin, paper clip, something of this sort. You will want to insert this object into the reset hole for 30 seconds and release. Your router should be back to default. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password. With the defualt settings your password may be blanked out. You are able to setup your wireless network name and password again. I hope this has helped

My router is DG834G v5 and it shows a red light for internet and does not connect ,there is no problem with my pone connection as the old modem is working fine, what do i do?


I understand that you are not able to connect to internet through DG834Gv5 as the internet light on the router is RED. I would suggest you to reset and reconfigure the router using the below steps:


RESET:


1. Press and hold the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons simultaneously until the Power LED turns red (about 6 seconds).

2. Release the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons. The LED blinks red three times and then turn green when the router has reset to the factory default state. Wait for the router to reboot.


CONFIGURATION:


1. Connect the cable/phone line coming from Internet Service Provider to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).

2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.

3. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

4. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.

5. Login to the router (username = admin password = password unless you have changed it).

6. Click on 'Setup Wizard' at the top of list from the left menu.

7. Select Yes and click Next.

8. It should give you 'PPPoA Detected' and then click on next.

9. Enter the login and password of the ISP and then click on Apply.

10. Once the settings are updated click on 'Router Status' and click on 'Connection Status' button (at the bottom of the page).

11. Click on Connect button.

12. Connecting to server should show 'Connected'.

13. If you receive 'CHAP authentication failed', close the 'Connection status' window and click on 'Basic settings'. Verify the login and password for ISP and apply the setting again.

14. Open up another browser window and try to access internet.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I did not set a password when I originally set it up. How can I do it now. Thank you


START-run-type: cmd
press enter
type: ipconfir
press enter
write down your defualt gateway

open internet browser
type in your defualt gateway in your address bar and press enter
If it asks you for login info and you have not changed it try admin for both username and password or admin for username and password for password. Should be a section for wireless security and you can enter password there.

Netgear DG834G v3 Installation


connect the yellow (or blue?) ethernet cable to your computer, this should connect to the router (router should be ON)

Now, in internet explorer type 192.168.0.1 (this should be the defualt gateway for the router on default settings.

Now you're into the router, there should be a setup wizard button in there.

See if you can set it up using that
