File sharing problem after installing Netgear DG834G ADSL/Wireles

I have a home network consisting of a Dell PC and a Dell Laptop. I was using a 2Wire wireless gateway/DSL Modem without problem and both computers could share files and access Internet w/o problem. The 2Wire died and I replaced it with a Netgear DG834Gv4 ADSL/wireless router. It installed easily and I was able to get Internet access on both PC and Laptop, but now neither computer can see or share files with the other. Any suggestions? Do I need to disable the firewall on the DG834G? (I use Norton Internet Security and its firewall on both the PC and the laptop.) Thanks for any help.

    I have run the setup disk that came with the DG834G several times. I have also run both the Network Setup Wizard and the Wireless Network Setup Wizard on both the PC and the Laptop several times without any success. (I ran the Network Setup Wizard first on the PC, let it create a Network Setup Disk on a floppy and used that to run the Network Setup Wizard on the laptop.) Still no improvement. Any other ideas?

How to enable my netgear DG834G v4


By setting it up . Do you have the instruction manual this would be a good starting point. Although you did not give a lot of information I will offer you a bit of information. This router is an ADSL router so you need to have an internet service provider that can provide ADSL on your phone line. Once you have an internet service provider give them a call and ask them to guide you in how to set up ADSL and connect this dg834G router to their network. ADSL requires ADSL line filters on all phones. While you are setting up the ADSL you might want to also setup encryption on the WI FI settings security and give it a network name. in the router.

Internet light on router diplayed red


The ADSL installation details have changed, so you need to update the router.

Check the router has not been moved too far from the laptop.

Telecom Issue, when a Netgear router (DG834G) linked to a small server unit, dissconnects the telephone line. The router works fine but no dial tone on the phone side of the micro filter. Any assistan


a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.

you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.

OK, thats not entirely true

pin out of RJ45 internet
1=orange/white *
2=orange *
3=green/white *
4=blue
5=blue/white
6=green *
7=brown/white
8=brown

1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network

if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.

File sharing between computers


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:

On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.

I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com

Wireless connection


Did you change your wireless SSID and channel? Better to enable encryption too. If this problem never happens when you're connecting to other wireless networks you might as well update or reload the firmware/software of your router.
