Question about NetGear RangeMax NEXT WNR834B Wireless Router

1 Answer

Lost internet connection

I have a home network with three computers on it. I have a dsl modem and a netgear router. The modem was supplied by At&T with my internet service. It was working fine until we got the third computer onthe network and now almost every day (or more than once per day) the internet connection is lost. If I power down the modem and router and then power them back up it fixes the problem temporarily.

    One computer is connected wired because it is right next to the router. The other two are connected wireless. The problem started after the third computer was added. It is a new toshiba laptop.

    How is the third computer connects to the network? Wired or wireless? What about the other 2 computers?

If that Toshiba laptop is not in use do you still experience that problem?
You may change wireless channel in your router.
Do a firmware upgrade for your router as well.

Hope this helps!

The CD is not available for installation is it necessary? I have all of the cable if the Yellow cable connects to the cable router what does the white cable on the wireless router connect to. Thank...


If the cables supplied have RJ45 connectors then they are used for connecting and configuring the wireless settings in Netgear router and to connect the Netgear to the DSL modem foe Internet access.
Most likely the color of the cables is not important.
To configure the wireless settings, connect a cable from one of the LAN ports (not the WAN/Internet port) to the LAN port on your computer. You may remove this cable after configuring the wireless settings if you want to connect to the Netgear by wireless only. You need to connect other computers to the Netgear's LAN port with a cable if they do not have wireless cards installed in these computers.

The other LAN cable is used to connect the Netgear WAN/Internet port to the DSL modem so you computers can connect to the Internet via the Netgear router.

Follow these instructions to configure the Netgear router.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Are you trying to install the router.
    You can do it manually without the CD.
    make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
    If your computer is able to go online through the modem
    Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
    open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

    Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.


    Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
    If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
    The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

    NEtgear RP614 cannot connect after a electricity shortage in our home :(


    Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...

    Good luck, and have a great day...
