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.

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)

I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since. Hope this idea helps!

Are you sure you are entereing the correct passphrase, or is it a network key (usually entered in Hexadecimal). Is your Netgear router set up to use WEP or WPA or equivalient security?

Have a look at this thread. That may offer some insight.
