Netgear DG834PN: websites won't load

Hi, I've just bought a new netgear DG834PN modem, and my ISP is Orange.fr. I'm having serious troubles accessing certain websites. Google loads no problem, but about.com doesn't for example. Some kind of load after about half and hour, like youtube.
Any ideas why this might be?

I've configured it using all default settings. I tried changing the DNS settings. 
I'm using Mac OSX and Safari, all latest updates. I've emptied all caches. I've tried using Firefox. I've tried using ethernet cable and airport. Nothing makes any difference!
Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this?! Is it an ISP issue? Or does the problem relate to the computer, or modem?

    Hi eecom


    Thanks for this info. The MTU settings are definitely a new angle to try. I'll have a go at finding a mac version of TCPoptimizer.


    Although I should mention that of the websites you mentioned in your post, I can access ebay and google news, but not amazon, msn, hotmail, speedguide or netgear.


    Don't know if this shed more light on the situation.


    Thanks again

It's possible that this relates to your MTU settings. A clue to this is if you cannot access secure sites, or sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Google News, MSN, Hotmail.
If this does sound like your problem, try downloading the TCP Optimizer from Speedguide.net. This gives you an interface to examine and change your MTU settings (choose 'custom settings').
You might want to experiment by reducing your MTU, either in stages, or straight down to (say)1450.
For a full explanation of why you would do this, and how, check this page at the Netgear knowledgebase.

This may solve your problem, if MTU settings are the cause. However, if you choose to go ahead, please check out the warnings on the knowledgebase beforehand.

You are an expert user, so you will have set a rollback/system restore point in case the program or settings do not work for you.... :)

    ....sorry, I've just spotted that you're running a Mac, so you may need to hunt down a different program to adjust MTU settings. Nonetheless I hope this info helps you.

    Thank you for the feedback, and for giving more information on which sites you can access... this is very helpful. Your problem may, or may not, be MTU settings.

    However, here is a long thread with many frustrated users with problems similar to yours.
    http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-274-p...

    (if you can access it.... :( )

    Some of them solved the problem with a spyware scan, having unwittingly picked up malware such as Virtumonde. I wonder if this be your problem? Have you been able to run a spyware scan, eg Macscan?



    If you have done this without success, and you still want to try adjusting MTU settings, this Apple site gives advice on what to do in Mac OSX (note the disclaimer!)

I would contact your ISP for help with this one. It should work but you would want to check the LAN and WAN settings to make sure they work on the network since there have been changes.

NetGear Gateway Access Problem


No to warner's locking the modem. 192.168.0.1 is the correct address for accessing the options within the modem. incidentally the Motorola wireless modem works better. Go on line to Netgear technical service and they will guide you through the task of setting up the system.

Well in order to access internet via your router, it needs to be configured as you said its being restored to factory defaults. Also always mention your ISP (Internet service provider), Router model no and Computer type with running Operating system for exact steps to fix such problems
Alright, first of all we need to establish physical connection with the Modem -> Router->Computer, then we will setup router
  1. Connect Ethernet cable from Modem to the WAN port of the router.
  2. Connect another Ethernet cable from Router LAN port to computer LAN port.
  3. Power cycle all the devices (Turn on Modem first, then Router and at last computer).
  4. Usually in case of Cable ISP, router would automatically get connection from Modem and Internet should start working.
  5. Else you can open Router admin page to configure
  6. You need to find the IP address of your router (usually Default IP of Netgear routers is 192.168.1.1). I can't tell what is the IP for your router as you didn't mentioned Model no.
  7. Open Command prompt (Start-Run-CMD) and type IPCONFIG.
  8. Default gateway address is the IP address of your router. (You can also find router's default IP on the its panel below.)
  9. Now next step is to access router interface.
  10. Open Browser and type http://192.168.1.1 (It is just an example, you need to use the IP address of your router, we are assuming its 192.168.1.1). Press Enter
  11. Type "admin" in usename and "password" in password box to login (both are in lower case without quotes)
  12. In the left side you can find Setup Wizard, Click on Yes and then Next
  13. Wait for the process to complete and then hit "Apply".

All the computers in the house should connect to the netgear wireless.

The netgear should in turn connect to the arris modem.

And yes, all the computers should be able to access the internet at the same time when setup this way. You shouldn't have to reset the modem at all.

How can you use public access on your desktop and netbook with a netgear router and adapter walmart sales lady said it can be done with just the router and adapter setup everything we needed was in the...


Just having the wireless router without connecting it to cable modem or DSL modem will not allow you to get onto the Internet. The wireless card in your computer/laptop will allow you to get onto the Internet at a free public WiFi hot spot location such as McDonalds, Star Bucks, at the airport.
Also the wireless card in your computer/laptop may allow you to connect into an unsecured wireless router from your neighbors, if their wireless router is within range of your computer/laptop but without their permission to use their Internet, it is considered stealing from your neighbor. They have a set download limit from their Internet Service Provider and by you connecting to their ISP you may cause them to exceed their download limit and they would be charged additional costs for every Mega byte over their limit.

Netgear access point cant open configuration page


Typically you should be using configuration software until a real IP can be setup and you either address it statically or turn on DHCP. As for the gateway and other information, on a wireless gateway, it should all be routed through the network. Also, I think you have to be wired to the WAP to access the config page, I don't believe it can be seen over the wireless connection as a security feature.
