Question about NetGear DG834 Router

Connection with netgear to laptop

Hi, i have just bought a hp G60-214EM notebook, and I am unable to connect it to the netgear on my pc. when i tried to connect, it says that the netgear was not the right model. I have a Dg834pn, not a wgr614 or wpn824. is there anyway I can change the settings to make both my pc and the laptop work. I am not very confident on the computer, this is a very new to me. If there is a way for me to solve this, and could you please explain in simple terms. thank you

Helen, you should be able to connect from your laptop to your router wirelessly. From what I understood your router is hooked up to your PC directly. If that's the case from your PC connect to your router and enable wireless. Go to Netgear support web page to find out how to do it. Once enabled, you should see your router's name in the list of available wireless networks on your laptop

    Helen, if you open from your desktop computer you should be able to login to the router configuration pages. Default username is "admin" and password is "password". You should be able to configure wireless access from there. It is probably not enabled. I found a link to manual for your router as well in case you lost it:

    I suggest you first try enabling wireless connection without any encryption and see if your laptop connects or can see the router. Then change SSID name and enable encryption (use WPA-PSK, it's better), then check if laptop can see the new Access point with new SSID.

Unable to connect to Wireless Router

Hi, There have been some compatibility issues with certain wireless cards. First try (for a short time) to remove any encryption you have set up on your wireless system. If the laptop logs on now, this is the problem I've confronted a few times. Try the different types of encryption that your router provides. If that doesn't work, I'd send the Netgear back (if its under warranty) explaining the problem. If there is no help there, maybe you should get the same model of router as next door. Hope this helps

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.

The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.
