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 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.


I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply. Thanks.

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.

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 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:


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.


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 '' or '' 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.

Please do visit for any technical queries regarding NETGEAR products.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I went through all the set up steps, but when i unhooked the ethernet cable from the router and my computer i could not connect to the internet. My computer is communicating with the router but the router...

You need ot make sure that the router WAN lights are on and its connecting to your ISP. You need ot have all the link and state lights on. The router will automatically connect to your ISP, unless someone has set the configuration to manual. You can try resetting to factory defaults and see what happens on the WAN side. You NEVER need to configure the WAN interface. You then need to reconfigure the LAN side.

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.

Cant get internet connection with linksys wrt54g, getting message

This is an issue which happens when the DHCP server on the router does not assign any IP address to the computer trying to connect to it.

-might have to do with settings on the router or the computer itself.

but if everything on the router and your network connections section in cotrol panel is in factory state then following procedure should help.

-Try power cycling your router.
-once router is back on try connecting to it again.

this should resolve it.

See if you can set it up using that
