If I understand your question, it's your Modem thats "locking" you out?
If so, look for a "RESET" button on your modem, usually on the back, it's very small, insert a pen point or similarly small point and hold for 10 sec. or so to reset your modem to default configuration settings. You will have to re-enter a passcode and reconfigure.

    You Modem will return to default settings, as in, the wirelesswill be "OPEN" you will have to reset you security code/password key on your modem, I assume NETGEAR, i'm not fimiliar with " bigpond thompson modem "but you can find Netgear set up athttp://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail... if you do not already have it. YOUR QUESTION: once.i have done that how would i know what pin numbers to put in or the right information cause i dont want to make it worse." By PIN NUMBER, do you mean your Netgear wireless password/ access code number?

    "FIRST" You can also try to restart everything. 1) unplug your Bigpond Modem, remove battery if applicable, 2) unplug Netgear Modem,3) shut down your computer4) replace battery, if applicable, in Bigpond Modem and plug in AC outlet, 5) plug in Netgear into AC outlet, wait for devices to run"self test"6) turn on computer and check for connection to wireless access point (Netgear) . SHUT OFF YOUR PHONE DURING THIS PROCEDURE, YOUR STATEMENT: whilst configuring from phone i accidently ticked do not allow devices which i thought it meant others. THE "TICK WAS DONE ON YOUR PHONE CONFIGURATION ONLY?

SOURCE: I cannot get connected to the internet.

If I understand you correctly you currently have a computer connected directly to your ADSL Internet connection and it can connect to the Internet. When you disconnect the computer, connect the DG834G router to the Internet connection and then connect the computer to the router you loose the Internet connection. It sounds like a ?simple? case of the router not being configured correctly. What I would suggest is to reset the router to its default configuration and follow the installation instructions again from the start. I?m not a big fan of the software configuration wizards that these home routers come with BUT they are the best way to easily configure the typical installation. To reset the router: in-between the 4 Ethernet LAN ports and the ADSL port there is a small reset button. Press and hold the reset button until the test LED turn on (about 10 seconds). Release the button and wait for the router to reboot. Let us know if this works or not. If you still have problems the more details and error messages you can supply the better.

SOURCE: setup router with vonage device and dsl modem

For the best call quality, I suggest you connect the Vonage router to the DSL modem, and if necessary, connect the Linksys router behind that. Why are you using a second router, though - you probably just need a switch or hub, if you're trying to connect more machines. Small networks rarely require more than one router. MaverickSolutions.biz may be able to provide additional support if you can give us more details about your installation.

SOURCE: DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router

Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.

NIC Driver for TG782T modem


Firstly, can you tell us what version of operating system are you using? Windows XP onwards usually have the WIA drivers included, unless a absolutely new chipset! Or is it a Realtek R8111/8168/8169 network interface? You can download on another computer the driver kit from Realtek directly.

I need to use my telstra thomson TG782T modem on a different network how do i reconfigure it??


You need to contact your 3rd party service provider for the configuration settings for their network.
If you cannot change the settings on the Thomson modem then maybe the firmware is set to Telstra's network and cannot be changed. In this case you need to use the recommended modem suggested by your 3rd party service provider.

If it's connected to your computer via ethernet cable then you have nothing to worry about. But if it's connected via USB then check with the label on the modem if it is compatible otherwise your OK.

Set your console to have a static IP address.
Make it something like 192.168.1.84 (where 84 can be anything from 2 to 250, so long as it is not the same as any other device)
Subnet mask, 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.254
DNS 192.168.1.254

MTU 1500.

If this doesn't fix it, try
10.0.0.150
255.255.255.0
gateway 10.0.0.138
DNS 10.0.0.138
MTU 1500

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

your firewall might have an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) which locks your network if programmed to detect unwanted ports. Work on your firewall first. hope this helps..

If you are using a usb dsl type modem and not a modem/router for connection, go into internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab, then look to see that Bigpond is selected as the default dial up.

If you are using a modem/ router which in effect is on all the time, go into the same menu in IE but tick the liitle button saying never dial a connection.
