Question about NetGear DG834G 54 Mbps 802.11g Wireless ADSL Firewall Router w/4-port 10/100Mbps Switch (NTWRNGDG834G)

1 Answer


When my wireless router is connected via the socket on the front of the BT master socket , no internet connection is made but the telephones work. If I then take off the front plate of the master socket and connect the wireless router to the test socket inside the master socket, the internet connection is fine but of course no telephones work because the phone extension cables are connected to the socket in the front plate which has been removed.
I have tried switching all micro filters and disconnection all phones connected but the internet connection is impossible via the front plate connector socket.

Every phone socket must have a working microfilter pluged as shown on the image below.

I think you need to change your microfilters as they might have blown.

Hope this helps,

This also can happen if the twisted pair copper wire that is used to send the signal into your router has been disconnected or there is a short outside your house.

NOTE: That even if BT reconnect and complete a silent line test on your telephone line from your house from the Master Test socket behind your faceplate this doesn't mean that you will have a Broadband Signal from your ISP.

Under normal operation you should see the following screen click show statistics, this line is connected at 3.3MB

You have to check if your computer can connect to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will tell you if the ethernet port on the modem is working. if that does not work call your cable provider.

Next thing after you get the instructions above done.

Press the reset button on the back of the router> press it in for 30 seconds then let go and pull out the power. Connect the router up the way it should be before you reset by the way. check if you have internet if you do not follow hte directions at teh link below.

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?

I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.

BT Voyager 2091 Wireless ADSL Router - DROP OUT

If you face frequent drop outs confirm with your isp that it's not a problem with line...and also check the physical setup of broadband check if your router is connected to main socket of your house where telephone line enters in your house......
now when you face drop outs check on your hard wired comp whether you remain connected or not if no its a problem with line..
if no reconfig your bt router for wireless network change the channel of your wireless network either to 1 or 11...
or either there is one other way reset your router to default settings by pressing the pin at the back of your router..
and after that your router will start its default wireless network i.e a unsecure network..
try connecting to that network if still the same there are drop outs it's a problem with bt to config the router...
