Question about NetGear DG834G Router
Well, follow the steps below for a better way to configure your connection:
Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.
Now perform the steps below on the wireles vista computer:
1. Click START, Click Control Panel then click classic view in left hand side menu.

5. Once the list is empty, click on ADD, select the first option, ADD A NETWORK THAT IS IN RANGE OF THE COMPUTER.
6. Click on your network name SSID and click on connect. If you have a password setup on the router enter the security key.

You can check the router settings and change the wireless card to match.
If you want to restore the Netgear back to the default settings then :-
On the back of the router there is a small hole marked RESET, insert a straighten paper clip into this hole for a few seconds until the LED lights flash.
To access the router configuration open a browser and type http://192.168.0.1
then login = admin and PW = password
Don't forget to change the password.
After you configure the wireless settings then you need to configure the wireless with the same settings.
