Question about NetGear DG834G Router

1 Answer

I cannot get connected to the internet.

Hiya I've got two computers at home connected by Netgear DG834G. For a short period of time, both the computer didn't have proper access to the internet. Now, my main computer has a internet connection whilist the one connected with the wireless network hasn't. There seems to be no internet whatsoever, and the netgear itself isn't connected to the computer :s. When i try to connect to the internet on AOL, it says that the DNS server is unreachable or unavaliable. There was also a message saying i have a "I.P. conflict with a computer connected to the network". I was hoping that someone could help me fix the problem before the new year =). thanks for the help.

Re: I cannot get connected to the internet.

If I understand you correctly you currently have a computer connected directly to your ADSL Internet connection and it can connect to the Internet. When you disconnect the computer, connect the DG834G router to the Internet connection and then connect the computer to the router you loose the Internet connection. It sounds like a ?simple? case of the router not being configured correctly. What I would suggest is to reset the router to its default configuration and follow the installation instructions again from the start. I?m not a big fan of the software configuration wizards that these home routers come with BUT they are the best way to easily configure the typical installation. To reset the router: in-between the 4 Ethernet LAN ports and the ADSL port there is a small reset button. Press and hold the reset button until the test LED turn on (about 10 seconds). Release the button and wait for the router to reboot. Let us know if this works or not. If you still have problems the more details and error messages you can supply the better.

Lost disk

You'll need to connect your computer directly to the DSL or cable connection, then go to the Netgear website and download the software to install the router. Once downloaded, install the software and go from there :)

No dsl/ internet lights

Contact your ISP. There are some companies that deactivate your internet connection after inactivity for a period of time. They have to reset the D-Slam.
They will also have you power cycle your modem.

It's not unknown for this to occur, and usually it's caused by Windows updates. In any case, try re-installing the programs themselves to rule out a corrupt file.

Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router

You have to configure your router...

If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.

If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.

Hope this could help..
