Question about NetGear DG834G Router
I have just got a net gear v3 modem to use with aol and a wireless laptop.
and every time i attempt to search for the router it shows up as nothing found not even my neighbours wireless which showed before which oddly enough now it does not!?
havent got the box or installion instructions so was just wondering how to set it up so it can be found.
have previously used the modem at a previous address.
Try the following 2 things;
1 does the laptop have a wireless switch or button if so try pressing it to see if it had been accedentially turned off, normally you will have a light somewhere on the laptop suggesting that the wireless card is on.
2 if the laptop wireless nic is turned on, try using the microsoft "Wireless Zero Configuration" service to configure your internet connection. depending upon what you have installed on your system the general idea would be from the application settings if installed / avaliable select "allow windows to manage my wireless connection" different applications use different descriptions but hopefully you get the idea. once done or if this step is not appropirate then manke sure that the "Wireless Zero Configuration" service is started;
right click on the my computer icon and select manage
then expand "services and applications" and select "Services"
(on the right hand panel you should see a list if services on your computer)
scroll down the list and find the "Wireless Zero Configuration" service right click on it and select properties.
once displayed make sure that application startup is set to "automatic" and click start if needed.
close "computer management"
then just where the time is normally displayed you should see an icon showing a computer with cartoon brackets eminating from it. right click and selct view wireless networks. and see if you can now view wireless networks.
hope this helps!
