Question about NetGear DG834G Router
Hello again, no problem at all! Thanks for letting me know.
If your router was actually set up by your ISP/network provider, or came with their settings, I’d recommend a visit to their website or helpline before going further.
This is because ISPs sometimes put their own firmware onto a router – most don’t do this, but some do. This makes the standard manufacturer’s manual useless for troubleshooting, and can make simple tasks, such as setting security, more difficult. I know that Sky do this, for example.
So I would not recommend a reset at this point, as you will lose the internet connection altogether until the router is set up again. Also, each ISP is different as to which settings they require to set up the router again: so again, a visit to their website or helpline is a good place to find this out.
Sorry to be negative here, but I’d rather err on the side of caution – having tried to help a someone with a Sky router, I’ve learned to tread carefully!
If you find that everything on your router is otherwise standard apart from the password – and your ISP supplies the password – you should be able to proceed as stated.
If you’d like to get hold of a standard DG834GT reference manual or installation guide by the way, you can download one from here: (bottom left)- there are also some helpful links on this page.
Good luck whatever you decide to do!
