SOURCE: netgear wireless router DG834PN wireless access local only

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

SOURCE: Unable to connect to internet when coonnected to VPN

What are you using for VPN? If you are using PPTP, it's probably due to split tunneling enabled. Goto Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right click on VPN Network Adapter, then click Properties > then click Networking tab > select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click properties > click Advanced button and uncheck Use Default gateway on remote network.
Hope this helps.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. Please click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click on Wireless Settings under Setup page.
5. Take note of the SSID.
6. Scroll down, look for the Security Options and check whether WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-fi Protected Access) is selected.
7. If its WEP is enabled, copy the value of the selected Key number. If WPA is selected, take note of the Passphrase.
8. To configure the computer with wireless adapter, please consider the following:

Configuring the NETGEAR adapter and Saving the Profile

a. Open the NETGEAR Smart Wireless Settings Utility icon located at the lower right portion of your computer screen. It will then open the Settings tab.

Tip: As an alternative to typing in the SSID, you can use the Network tab to view the available wireless networks. Double click on the desired network.

c. Click the Apply button to activate the connection.
d. Enter a name for your profile (e.g. NETGEAR to Home Network) and click the Save Profile button to store the current settings.

Note: The above procedure applies only if you are trying to connect to a wireless network with no wireless security.

If the computer is using Windows built-in wireless program to manage the wireless adapter, please follow the steps below:

For Windows XP Service Pack 1

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
b. Click on the Advanced tab.
c. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
d. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network.
e. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
f. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on to View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Network.
5. Select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. The network key will be the Key or Passphrase you have copied from the router setup (refer to step 7). Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab. Please ask assistance from the wireless adapter vendor for configuration if using a proprietary wireless utility (non-NETGEAR wireless adapters).

SOURCE: I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.

Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

Can only connect 1 computer to router


You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.


An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity


Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)

Cant accses router


Pressing and holding the reset button on the router for about 5 seconds should reset the router, but you may need to connect with the router via an RJ45 network cable incase the wireless is not able to set it up The default ip address of the router should then be 192.168.2.1. do not use the windows repair wizard as this totally messes up your pcs ip address, make sure that your network wireless and wired adapters, are set to obtain an ip address automatically You shouldnt change the PPOE or PPOA settings, as they are the settings on which your ISP allows your router to connect to the server. Manually entering an ip address will effect the address of the router so keep the settings as enable DHCP to assign ip addresses automatically. Ensure when you have it running you save the settings so as you can reinstall them if neccasary.

Problem connecting to the net


You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
