If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

Setting up a wireless lan


The DG834PN is an easy to set-up, single box solution, it plugs straight into your ADSL line – there is no need for a separate modem. Once the DG834PN modem router is connected, configuration is also easy, via NETGEAR’s Smart Wizard™. The Smart Wizard™ automatically detects your ISP’s network settings, and then walks you through each step of the installation process. Or then Call ur ISP.

Thank You,

Connection with netgear to laptop


Helen, you should be able to connect from your laptop to your router wirelessly. From what I understood your router is hooked up to your PC directly. If that's the case from your PC connect to your router and enable wireless. Go to Netgear support web page to find out how to do it. Once enabled, you should see your router's name in the list of available wireless networks on your laptop
