Question about NetGear DG834G 54 Mbps 802.11g Wireless ADSL Firewall Router w/4-port 10/100Mbps Switch (NTWRNGDG834G)

No wireless connection

Hello, I am a subscriber to AOL Broadband and have purchased a wireless router, sadly I cannot connect wirelessly, however, I can connect via ethernet cable. I contacted Netgear as AOL seemed very reluctant to help and told me to ask them. I was on the phone for 58 minutes (premium time) they obviously could read what was happening over the internet, ping IP adress, ping ping here ping there. Complete waste of nearly an hour. I really need someone to give constructive options in the hope that I might resolve this problem. All I wanted was to go on line without cables lying all over the lounge. I am using a new Toshiba Satellite M50 laptop and have Centrino Mobile Technology so adaptor is built in. O.S Windows XP. Configuring seems to be the problem. Sorry but I am no expert, just a basic user. Thanks for any help that comes my way.

Re: No wireless connection

Some netgears require you to upgrade firmware before they will work wireless, use the disk to set this up, it is the easiest way. Also make sure your laptop wireless is switched to on, I see them turned off all the time.

Re: No wireless connection

The problem maybe that, you need to set up the router first via an RJ45 cable and enable wireless connections, as you already have said, but probably left the cable connected. You need to then unplug your RJ45 cable from the laptop and router as you cannot connect both wirelessly and wired at the same time, as the router is trying to give the same IP address to two different connections. Your laptop should be wireless enabled(check in the device manager, as it maybe dissabled, as some manufacturers do by default.) Do not have your router WEP or WPA encrypted until you have set it up. Your laptop should also find your connection and probably others in your neighbourhood as it should auto find other connections. Right click on wireless connections in your connections folder and see if it has found your connection then click on connect. Hope this helps

Hello, I dont think you need the drivers for Router. And first of all you need to connect your modem to your router through ethernet cable. And after connecting your modem, configure your wireless router by typing this IP address in internet explorer: The user id is admin and the password is password. Then detect your broadband connection by using the option in the router. Try connecting your Laptop to wifi after setting the connection.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast

Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

The wireless light does not light up at all. and I cannot connect to wireless.

It may not be compatible with your broadband provider. AOL customers can only use Netgear Router's as no others work with it.

1. If your laptop has a built-in wireless adapter, then you don't need a belkin wireless g plus adapter.
2. You can connect to the Internet using your adapter provided that the location where you at offers wi-fi or wireless connection
3. If you want wireless connectivity at home, then you need to have a wireless router and subscribed for DSL/Cable broadband connections
