Netgear DG834v4 router No accesswhen downloading large files

I have a small business network with a Netgear DG834v4 router alongside a Netgear GS608 V2 8 port switch. If I am sending a large file via email/ftp then any access to the internet is denied and I can't send further email. Its as though the file takes all the bandwidth and nothing else can get in.

Anyone any ideas?

Hello,

I believe some ISPs just block any attempt to send large files by email or FTP. Thus this problem may be outside your control.

However, try a Google search on 'send large files by email' or similar. A number of companies offer 'large file' transfer services, which might help you work around this issue.
HTH!

All you need to do is lower down the MTU value of the router. By default it is set to Auto with a value of 1500. To reduce the MTU, open the router's admin page and look for MTU setting. Set it to Manual Value and set the size to 1492 if you have DSL internet, and 1463 if you have Cable Internet. 1400 for general.

How to Select a Very Right Router for Home or Business


No matter which group you belong to or stay with? If you want to connect outside world through computer, router is an essential element of modern home and business networks. A router lets your computer connect to the Web to read your favorite Web sites, check e-mail, IM friends, or teleconference with colleagues....

When we speak of routers, I usually think of Cisco---a network giant, even though so many others such as Nortel, D-link, Netgear, etc. Because Cisco router is considered as the top choice while choosing a router for home or office, and the more important is that Cisco System offer SOHO, small, medium and large-sized offices or enterprises with different types of routers to meet their different needs.

As we known, the popular Cisco router in the market are Cisco 800 series, Cisco 1800 series, Cisco 1900 series, Cisco 2800, Cisco 2900, Cisco 3800, 3900, 7200 and 7600, etc.(for small to large businesses), also Cisco Linksys-E series for home.

More choice, harder to select the very one for family or for enterprise. But it doesn't matter if you evaluate and weigh the following eight criteria that can help you figure out which router best fits your needs.

Your Usage and Router's Performance For home or for office (small or large size?), first be clear about it. Different demands require different performance of router. For example, choosing a one for family, you may just want to surf on the internet, no need of a router as a heavy-duty gamer or a small business, Cisco Linksys-E series will fit you. Because you know the more expensive the router, the more features it will contain. However, it doesn't necessarily buy a higher performance router. And for business, especially for large or head offices, router's higher performance and safety is vital elements which must be considered while buying. Cisco 1800, 1900, 2800, 2900(for small to medium-sized business or enterprise branch office, Cisco 3800, Cisco 3900, Cisco 7200, Cisco 7600(for medium to large-sized business and enterprise head office), these types can meet companies' various requirements...

Expandability The router usually has a default number of interfaces-but some routers, such as the 3600 series, have none. So, pay attention to the number of interfaces you can add on top of the default.

Router's Integrated Services This refers to functionality supported by a router that previously required separate boxes. For example, a 16- or 32-port switching module in a router negates the need for an Ethernet switch; having a firewall, VPN server, and IDS/IPS sensor in a router can negate the need for a firewall, VPN concentrator, and dedicated IDS/IPS appliance.

Support and Reliability Cisco routers are traditionally reliable, and Cisco is always offering a high level of support. When purchasing a router, you will have various levels of support options. Select the best level for your organization. Of course, using these features in your decision-making process requires some research. You could peruse the Cisco Routers Product Portfolio, scan through the specifications, and select the router yourself. Or, you could also use the criteria above to work with are seller or directly with Cisco to determine which routers offer the features you need.

Warranties Router manufacturers always provide a warranty package together with their equipment. The length and terms of these warranties vary widely. A better warranty may indicate a manufacturer more committed to support their products, while a lesser warranty could indicate a somewhat lesser standard of product quality or reliability. Always consider router warranties when making your purchase decision.

Router's Cost Router manufacturers or router suppliers (like Cisco router supplier) sometimes offer rebates or other discounts from the full retail price of their routers. So you can buy a suitable router at a very great price while router is at a big discount. (Routerswitch.com, hardware.com, often have big discount for hot routers, like Cisco 1800, Cisco 1900, Cisco 2800, Cisco 2900, etc.

Actually, besides considering router's basic function, performance, quality and style, you must notice router's price. So you'd better make a comparison among different routers in order to choose a highly efficient and cost-effective one.

More you need pay attention to while buying a router...

Where do i find UPnP on the the fvs318 netgear prosafe VPN firewall router, i cant find it on the main configuration menu


The netgear prosafe VPN router is a high-end component ment for business and corporate use and does not support UPnP

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows programs accessing your router (limewire, utorrent, etc...) to auto configure the security settings on your router which would be harmful to a business/corp. network.

Trying to first-time install netgear model DG834v4 ADSL2+ in my iMAC with Mac OS X 10.4.11, so (according to manual) I cannot use Wizard and must do manually. Wiring is OK, I am connected to ADSL network...


Since the DG834v4 is a modem and router inbuilt they have mentioned ''Log into the ADSL2+ modem router'' .
The default IP to logon to the device is 192.168.0.1.
Just open your Safari web browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
It will ask for User Name adn Password.
The Default User ID and Passwrd is "Admin" and "Password" (enter without quotes)
On the Top Left you'll find "Basic Settings".Select it and enter the desired User name and Pwd. (Make sure to choose PPPOE or PPPOA, to find out contact Internet Service Provider)
Again on the Top left select "ADSL Settings".
Select "LLC-Based" or "VC-Based" under Multiplexing Method.
Enter VPI and VCI Number (Again to findout Contact your Internet Service Provider)

DHCP problems for wired devices on my network


It sure sounds like the switch is not passing the DCHPDISCOVER packets through to the Apple Extreme.

Is the switch a NetGear Prosafe switch, or a GS608, or a different model?

If it's a managed switch (e.g. ProSafe) then you can connect to the switch's management UI and confirm that the default uplink port is set up for the port that connects to the Apple Extreme, and that it's set to forward DHCPDISCOVER packets to that port

If it's an unmanaged switch like the GS608, then it shouldn't matter which port you connect, but if your model has one port labeled "uplink" then you should be sure to use that port to connect to tha Apple Extreme.

One last thought -- have you replaced the cable that you're using between the switch and the Apple Extreme? You could test the network by first connecting your computer to the Extreme so it gets a valid lease, then unplug it and hook up the full network (computer -> switch -> Extreme) and see if you can still ping the router.

That's a bunch of thoughts, but may not be a solution yet. If these don't address the problem, post back with the model number of your Switch, and I'll go more in-depth.
