Changing my IP using existing netgear DG834 x 3 modem

I intend to change my IP from Bigpond to Tadaust,because I recieve a pension and I will be able to use more internet for my money. Tadaust will not offer support for modems that arn't theirs. What settings in my computer do I need to change when they transfer my IP to Tadaust? Do I need to change settings in the modem and Outlook? I run windows XP. The modem is also connected to my wife's laptop which has Vista as the operating system.

Many thanks
John

Changing IP is automatic when you switch providers. If you're question is actually changing internet connection using existing modem then it's a different story altogether.

First, using Tadaust as your internet requires a username and a password for a dial up connection and a DSL PPPoE connection. You need this information before you can try to connecto Tadaust.

I am not sure if you are trying to make a dial up connection or DSL connection but both can be done on XP by going to Start -> Network Connection -> Create a new connection and then follow the instructions. Almost the same procedure on Vista.

Here's a link to Tadaust support page which might be helpful to you -> http://www.tadaustconnect.org.au/support/

Add netgear73 router PPPoE to add network name and wireless key?


Assuming you already have a modem/router on your network and you are simply trying to add a wireless network, you will need to
set up the Netgear router to act as a wireless access point. To do this you need to connect a computer directly to one of the Ethernet (not WAN) ports on the back of the router. Access the router using its IP address (usually 192.168.1.1). Login using the userid and password of the router. First you need turn off the DHCP function of the router. This will make it a slave to the existing router. YOu will also need to change the router IP address to a static value. It is recommended you use a high number to avoid IP conflicts such as 192.168.1.210. You can then go to the wireless setup and set your network name (SSID) and password. Once you have done all that you can save and log out of the router. Disconnect the PC from the router and connect the Netgear router to the existing router using Ethernet cable. Use one of the regular ports on the existing router, and run the cable to one of the ports (not the WAN) of the Netgear router. You may have to reboot both routers to get initial communications established. Once you have them talking, the existing router should receive wireless requests from the Netgear router and assign IP addresses to the devices attaching to the Network.

Configuration of NETGEAR router as Access Point:

The below steps illustrates the usage of router's like WGR614, WGT624, WPN824 as an access point to extend the wireless network in your location. The only required setup is that you should have a DHCP server running on your network ( be it your modem or a different router).

1. Connect a computer directly to NETGEAR router on any of the four LAN ports.
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on wireless settings in the left hand side menu Under Setup.
5. Change the network name SSID to some other name.
6. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.
7. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic' and Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.
9. Apply the settings.

Click on LAN IP setup from the left menu.

1. Change the IP address of the router from 192.168.1.1 to a free IP of your existing DHCP network.
2. Also disable the DHCP of the router by unchecking the box for 'Use router as DHCP Server'.
3. Click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.
4. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, turn off the router and restart the computer.

Now, connect the two router in the following way:

1.Connect Ethernet cable from the Lan port of the existing router/modem to the Lan port of the NETGEAR router.
2. Powercycle both the routers and your computer
3. You may connect other computers' directly to NETGEAR router or wirelessly as per your requirement.

I cant figure out how to open my nat type for my PS3 can someone help me please?


I find that NAT problems are usually caused by a modem that is acting as a router. basically causing you to be twice removed from the internet instead of once. to find out if this is your case:
1)plug your computer directly to the modem (no router)
2)what ip does your computer recieve
3)now google "what is my ip"
4)do they match?
if yes never mind, otherwise log into your modem
A) just like a router go to your default gateway (find same as 2 above) and enter the default username and password
B) look for a setting like use "public IP' or use "private ip" or "bridge mode" or something. you want your modem in bridge mode so that your router recieves a public IP. it may give you a security warning
C) after saving changes and giving everything time to reset and renew check your IP again and see if it matches what google tells you.
D) plug everything back up normal

hope that helps

I recently purchased a Netgear N600 Wireless router connected to my Comcast Motorola Surfboard SB5120 modem. I have a Comcast plan of 20 Mbps but through www.speedtest.net am consistently getting 8 Mbps...


I think its the modem that you need to upgrade. Comcast is already running on DOCSIS 3.0 system. The SB5120 modem that you have is a DOCSIS 2.0 modem. You may need to have your modem replaced with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem like the Motorola SB6120.

I have internet access when I plug in the ethernet cable from the modem, but when I try to access the internet via the router it says 'connected but no internet access'. What is the problem?


Hi there,
I know it is very frustrating if these things do not work. I am sure that the router is not setup properly that is why it is not working. It says connected because you have a good connection from pc to the router. But the connection from your Netgear router to the modem is not working. There is a possible IP conflict between your modem and router. I suggest changing the IP address of your netgear router to 10.10.10.1 . To do this click the link below:
ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR2000_UM_24FEB09.pdf
Note: This is the manual for your router. Go to LAN TCP/IP Setup Parameters to change the router's IP address.

Password and username setup


hi merrynlord to connect a bullion to bogpond you must enter the modem set up you do this by opening an internet browser IE or Firefox for instance then type in the address of the modem that should http://192.168.1.254.
Once this is done you will have to enter a user name and password if you changed this when you setting up for supernerd then you will have to use the one you created, if not then the default is
user = admin password = password.
on enter these you should then get a page with a menu on the left, here click on quick start, click
PPoA then enter 8 for VPI and 35 for VCI....altho these settings should already be in there...so baically check them, leave NAT enabled, leave the IP subnetmask and DSN all blank, then where it says username type in your new Username from bigpond and the new password. click apply then click save, and your modem should then connect to bigpond and get all the settings it requires.
If this doesn't connect you let me know.

The router should get the IP address on it's own when connected to a DSL or cable modem. If it's needing an IP address then it should be from the modem. The router can have an issue if the modem and router use the same IP range. Try changing router to 192.168.2.1. This can stop the possible conflict for why it's not getting info on it's own.

Cannot access the internet after installing new NetGear router.


you need to change the IP address of the router. Plug just the router into the computer. Open Internet Explorer and go to 192.168.1.1. user: admin password:password. On the main page it allows you to change the LAN IP. Make it 192.168.2.1. Now unplug everything and rewire it correctly. This should fix the issue. Verizon uses 192.168.1.1 for the modem well so does Netgear and this causes the network to not function. So changing the IP of the router should fix this issue and has worked for me many times that I have done that set up.
