Re: netgear dg834gt

I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since. Hope this idea helps!

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...

More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

If you are "upstairs", is the wireless signal from the "downstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "upstairs"?

Netgear dg834gt connected to isp but not no internet

Via Wi-fi or Ethernet? Eithewr way, you must run the network wizard for either the cable (Ethernet) connection or the wireless connection wizard. Check your local area connection status window (Right click the computer icon on the lower right hand corner of your screen -usually-). If you are connected but, can not log in and, you are absolutely sure your modem is connected properly to both ISP and your Computer, try calling a tech from your ISP. Be very nice and maybe they will guide you through the process. If , on the other hand, you want to be absolutely sure it is a router issue. Connect directly to your modem and see it you can surf.

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.

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.
