Question about NetGear DG834G Router
My computer can access other two computers and ping everything ok.Number two computer cant ping itself or number 3 computer but can connect to my computer and internet.Number 3 is the same as number two accept it can ping itself but cant connect or ping number 2.In the router settings under attached devices number 2's network name doesnt show up and no matter how many times i run the wizard or check the firewall it doesnt show up could this be the problem? if so how do i fix it.
First make sure all pcs are on the same network name, usually either mshome or workgroup, to check this go to my computer>right click>properties then look at computer name tab, if any are different than the network you should be named as click change name, save and restart. Then go to each computers network adapters properties and go to the TCP/IP line nd click properties again and check that the cards are set to obtain ip address automatically and click ok, because if you hve used the wizard it would have changed your pc's ip addresses. Next go into your routers settings by typing it's ip address in your web browser (eg 192.168.1.1, depending on the router, refer to manual) and look in menu for DHCP and make sure this is enabled so as to automatically asign your pc's an ip address. If you are struggling for any of the pcs's to obtain an address, click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear all ip and dns addresses.
