No lan games

Thanx for that, I have recently changed isp to BT, but was still able to play lan games when other machines were connected to the router. AVG has fairly recently updated to 2014 edition I cannot rule out the possibility of that. I don't know how to check that out, though. I thought it might be a net card but it proved it wasn't after two or three changes, Internet is fast and reliable. The games we use have either a typed I.P. box to use or leave blank and it searches, but I don't even get past selecting tcp/ip

SOURCE: Wont connect to the internet

If you can see the router recognize it, would that be a wireless router and you can see it in the connected devices list? or just that the light is on?

Let's start at the beginning. Let's check what ip address you have now. open up a command prompt (Start->Run->cmd then Enter) type "ipconfig". Note these numbers.

1.) Go into Network Connections (Control Panel) 2.) Go into the properties for the adapter you would like to connect with. 3.) Find the TCP/IP for that adapter and click the properties button. 4.) Both "Obtain an IP address automatically" & "Optain DNS server address automatically" 5.) Close those windows and open up a command prompt (Start->Run->cmd then Enter) 6.) type "ipconfig" and note the numbers. Only bad number would start with "169.xx.xx.xx" which means no ip address was distributed. Type "ping yahoo.com" if you get 4 replies then you have a solid internet connection.

hope this help, - Best Regards, -md

Open nat type

I take this is your type of network you have. NAT (Network Address Translation) only job is make all the IP's of you LAN to be able to use the one IP From the ISP. For example, you can have 3 Pc's connected to router (192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3) with only one connection to ISP, and address like 67.123.43.200 (Address change upon ISP location).
In order to the game communicate between PC ans Internet have to configure Ports to connect to. Thanks to UPNP (Universall Plug and Play) this configuration is made automatically between the PC and the Router and simplifies those configurations.

Things to check:
The router have UPNP and is on.
There's a Firewall interfering with the game.

I have adg834g router supplied by BT. I have since changed my ISP to Post Office who supplied me with another router. My phone lines run right through the house but the wireless signal is poor at one end...


I understand that you would like to extend the wireless coverage in your home with the DG834G. I would suggest you to configure DG834G as an access point to extend the coverage of your post office router using the below steps:


1. Connect a computer directly to DG834G on any of the four LAN ports.

2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.

3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.

4. Click on wireless settings in the left hand side menu Under Setup.

5. Change the network name SSID to some other name.

6. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.

7. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic' and Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.

8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.

9. Apply the settings.


Click on LAN IP setup from the left menu.


1. Change the IP address of the router from 192.168.0.1 to a free IP address in the range of the Post office router.

2. Also disable the DHCP of the router by unchecking the box for 'Use router as DHCP Server'.

3. Click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.

4. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, turn off the router and restart the computer.


Now, connect the two router in the following way:


1.Connect Ethernet cable from the Lan port of the Post office router to the Lan port of the DG834G

2. Powercycle both the routers and your computer

3. You may connect other computers' directly to DG834G or wirelessly as per your requirement.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.


Regards

Unable to connect to internet via router.Computer says signal strength is excellent.diagnostic check highlighted DNS problem.I think VIRGIN (my isp) have recently changed their DNS nos. Virgin (my isp)...


If you're using an ADSL connection the details you need are below.

Settings for an ADSL connection through a telephone line.

Open a web browser and log onto your router.

Find Internet Wan > Connection Type.

Set the Router to use PPPoA, type in your User Name and Password in the spaces provided. If you do not have a Service Name or do not know it, leave the Service Name field blank. After you have typed in your information, click "Apply Changes". After you apply the changes, the Internet Status indicator will read "Connected" if your Router is set up properly.

WAN > Connection Type PPPoA
User Name > firstname.name@adsl.virgin.net (or virgin.com or whatever)
Password > *******
Retype Password > *******
VPI/VCI > 0 / 38
Encapsulation > VC MUX
MTU > Leave as Default

Find Internet Wan > DNS.
Select Automatic from ISP
(Virginmedia DNS servers are Primary: 194.168.4.100 Secondary: 194.168.8.100)

Find Lan Setup > Lan Settings
Ensure DHCP Server is set to On

If the details entered are correct the router will show connected and the internet lamp will be green.

Do the configuration on a wired connection.

MAC address cloning


Hi killer - MAC (Media Access Control) cloning is used to clone your MAC address.
Some ISPs (most notably MediaOne) use your NIC's MAC address to authenticate your service. When you change the computer that you have connected to your cable modem service, you usually have to call up Tech Support and give them the MAC address of the NIC in the new machine. Since hardware routers have the equivalent of a NIC on their WAN port in order to connect to your cable modem, you would have to do the same thing if you're installing a router.
Recently, however, some ISPs have started to recognize the MAC addresses of popular routers and disconnect service if a router is detected. Fortunately, many router manufacturers are including the capability to either set the router WAN port MAC address to anything you want, or copy it from a computer connected to the router LAN side. You can check the Router comparison chart under "Mac addr. clone" to see which routers support this feature. Then consult the router's documentation for directions on using the feature.
So basically, it's used to fool ISPs into thinking there isn't a router. If the router has the same MAC address as either your NIC card or your modem the ISP won't detect and service won't be interrupted. Most ISPs don't do this so iy's rarely needed.
If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Netgear router dg834gt


Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
