Question about NetGear DG834G Router

2 Answers

Can I have a wired and wireless connection from the same router?

I have a netgear DG834GT router which I am using with a single pc on a wired connection. The pc is fairly old so doesn't have a wireless adaptor but the wired connection is fine. My son now has a playstation 3 which he wants to use online so my question is, can I use the same router to provide a wireless connection for the PS3 as well as the wired connection for my pc? If it is possible is it easy to do as I can't find the router manual and don't really want to have a go and mess it up and lose everything.

Thanks

Hello..the quick answer is yes, this router allows wired and wireless connections at the same time, and it is easy to connect wirelessly (in theory...).

The PS3 will need to be configured to connect to your router, though. There is a guide to achieving this here:

If the wireless signal on the router has been secured, the settings used will be needed to set up the PS3.

If not, you may wish to secure the wireless connection, which is not too difficult - just a few steps, which I or someone else can help with if you wish.

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if anything is not clear or you need further information.

Hi I have installed a netgear wireless usb adapter wg111v3 onto a PC (on another PC i have a netgear DG834GT router). After installing the adapter the "signal strength" is EXCELLENT and the "status" is...


You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.

first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this

go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".

How do I disable my DG834GT router firewall?


The router firewall only blocks connections coming from the internet.

Basically it only lets an outside IP connect to your network if you establish the connectoin FIRST.

The most common cause of not being able to see another PC on the LAN is not having the same workgroup name.

Go to Start > My Computer , right click > Properties > Computer name. Make sure all PCs have the same workgroup name.

Netgear dg834 configuration


All you should need to do is go through the basic setup screens and enter your talk talk username and password - the rest of the settings should remain as default.
If you can logon to your old router, have a look at all the settings and copy them down to enter into the new router.
Let me know if you still have problems (I'm on talktalk too)
