    When it will not connect, are you within range of the router?

    What Operating System are you running?

What signal strength do you get when you connect?

Is the router buried underneath or inside a cabinet or anything?

Consider relocating the router away from other objects (particularly metal items), or on the outside of any type of cabinet.

Router is connected, when i go online it disconnects from the router. i have DSL that it is connected to. So it picks up the ip address automatically.


Is the DSL you are connecting too a router and modem as well? If so, then you do not need the NetGear. If you have for example a AT&T Router called a 2-Wire it is also a router.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Not receiving n-type signal from router


    Put the laptop next to the router and see what signal you then get. do the following
    ---- start>control panel>system and maintenance>system>device manager on lefthandside> network adapters click on the +sign>right click on the wifi adapter>properties>now in there there maybe a TAB for advanced which allows you to select the type of signal the adapter is set for - check its not set to G. ----- loss of signal in room, wifi signals can be reduced, if they pass through walls etc - sometimes just a small change in the routers position or aerial alignment can make a big difference ------ download and install - http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php - you can then monitor on the graph the signal strength and see when it drops off -------- also a change in the wireless channel used on the router can helpp - Use channel 1 or 6 or 11 as they do not overlap - have a look at the other signals being broadcast and what channel they are on - then choose one that is free or also on a very weak signal to minimise interference

    Connection problem


    if it's going offline, then it's losing the signal, or is recieving a low signal, it should be at 54mbps but when it gets below around 24mbps, it will disconnect and look for a stronger connection in your area, or disconnect from the net altogether.

     

    Put your router in a higher and better line of sight to your adapter, walls and floors can block the signal and check that it's not your router that is losing the connection.

    Help needed with WG834g & usb adapter


    Sometimes a hard wire cable whether lan or usb is needed to set up the router first before going wireless. If not it maybe your pc needs a ip/dns flush from the last allocated numbers from your bt router. To clear this:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
