You need a network cable (cat5e) to connect the cable modem to the wan or Internet port on the router. Then another network cable to connect the router port(1-4) to the computer's network (NIC) port. If you are going wireless, you do not need to connect the second cable.
You do not need a disk. just power down the cable modem,router and computer.
Hook it all up, then power up the cable modem first, wait 30 seconds, then power up the router, wait 30 seconds, then power up the computer. You shold be able to get online.
Unless: you are using DSL
and unless the original owner had an encryption key on the router.

Hi I'm looking to install a DG834G router to give wireless access but the only instal disc is from AOL and I'm not with them anymore, I have tiscali broadband. How do install the router if it won't plug...


Try NOT using any install disk.

Turn the TISCALI router off.
Turn the NetGear off.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the LAN port on the TISCALI router to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethenet cable to connect from one LAN port on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the TISCALI on. Wait 60 seconds.
Turn the NetGear on. Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Note that the '123.456' will be some other numbers.
Start Internet Explorer.
Type http://192.168.123.456 (substitute the current values)
Login to the web-server running on the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to configure a SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and a password for your network.
After the router restarts, you should be able to get wireless access, using the SSID and password that you configured your router to use.

I dont know how to connect a netgear DG834G


No software needed for Mac or PC. You do need an ASDL account name and password.
Your ISP should provide you with this info.

Connect with an ethernet cable any port on the unit to your computer network socket.

fire up a web browser and use the url:

http://192.168.0.1

This gives you the login screen.

use
admin

as the login name and

password

as the password. If unit is second hand then reset to factory defaults by using a paper clip in the reset point on the rear of the unit (between the 4 ethernet ports and the asdl port)

You are then able to set up the router.

exact usermanual depends on which model version you have. (see label on base)

see this page and choose your exact model for full manual.

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.

Netgear DG834G v3 Installation


connect the yellow (or blue?) ethernet cable to your computer, this should connect to the router (router should be ON)

Now, in internet explorer type 192.168.0.1 (this should be the defualt gateway for the router on default settings.

Now you're into the router, there should be a setup wizard button in there.

See if you can set it up using that

Installation CD


Netgear lists these items to check.

http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/N101234.asp

There is not really a driver needed, you just need to log into the router and adjust the appropriate settings.
See the installation and setup guides on Netgear's sight.

If you give me the link you are attempting to download, I'll help get you the file.
