Question about NetGear DG834G Router

Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router

I have recently purchased a NetGear DG834G router...

I have a broadband internet connection using a speedtouch modem.

I have plugged the Router in with the necessary connections. BUT can't seem to access the internet through this connection..

When I try to access the internet.. through the NetGear router it says DNS error... or just brings my Dial up Broadband Speedtouch connection up..

I am not really understanding what I need to do. I have reset the Router (using the button underneath) and loaded the disc that came with the router a few times. But can't seem to change this.

Re: Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G...

I don't know if this is solved yet? If not....

The Netgear DG834G is a combined modem router. I don't think you need to attach it to a modem, as there is already one on board.

So, if you still have this problem.....perhaps try detaching and uninstalling the Speedtouch, and Netgear, then reinstall the Netgear router from scratch (as per your manual, or other instructions). If you need a copy of the manual, try the Netgear site...

Hope this helps you make a start, if the problem is not yet solved.

Re: Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G...

You have to configure your router...

If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.

If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.

Hope this could help..

I purchased a Netgear DG834G Router a little over two years ago when I switched from dial up to broadband. It is the router that came from the broadband provider and following the initial set up which I was talked through by tech support, I have had little trouble with it - at least until a matter of days after the warranty ran out.

Hi I'm looking to install a DG834G router to give wireless access but the only instal disc is from AOL and I'm not with them anymore, I have tiscali broadband. How do install the router if it won't plug...

Try NOT using any install disk.

Turn the TISCALI router off.
Turn the NetGear off.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the LAN port on the TISCALI router to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethenet cable to connect from one LAN port on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the TISCALI on. Wait 60 seconds.
Turn the NetGear on. Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....
Note that the '123.456' will be some other numbers.
Start Internet Explorer.
Type (substitute the current values)
Login to the web-server running on the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard"
to configure a SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and a password for your network.
After the router restarts, you should be able to get wireless access, using the SSID and password that you configured your router to use.

Wireless Router Configuration

Double check that your modem has more than just a usb port on it. There should be a network port on it too. Simply connect a network cable for the modem to the WAN port on the router and then from the router to the computer.

I have never seen a modem with only usb on it. Let me know if this helps.
