Question about NetGear DG834G Router

1 Answer

Wi Fi fine, ISP fine, no internet via LAN connection though.

Hi all

Lost my internet browsing function on main PC and am fishing for any suggestions to get it back pls.

Netgear DG834G wireless modem router hooked up via Ethernet LAN port to main PC; laptop works off Wi Fi. The laptop works fine and can access the internet, but the main PC can no longer access the web via IE, AOL software or Mozilla. A torrent prog I have can bizzarely still download (but seemingly not upload/seed). Solutions I have tried on main PC:

  • Ping router – replies fine.
  • Ping (external) works fine
  • LAN connection 2 is connected @ 100MBS - have ‘repaired’ & still fine.
  • Open browser and LAN 2 ‘traffic’ light on router flashes as does ‘ISP data TX’ light. No web content appears in browser though ‘cant contact website’.
  • Both browsers internet connection options are in auto with no proxy selected.
  • All 3 progs added to Windows firewall exceptions.
  • Windows firewall disabled and AVG anti virus disabled (nothing else running – Norton long since uninstalled)
  • BIOS checked and LAN card remains enabled.
  • LAN card reported as working fine via System/Hardware.
  • IE connection troubleshooter ran and everything passes fine other than no HTTP/TCP data.
  • Network connection properties on LAN 2 has TCP/IP protocol installed and TCP/IP 6 (as well as others in the list).
  • Modem router has been re-flashed with previous known good settings backup - I used IE to access the router to do this (!)
I’m a bit stumped what else to try really – the ISP connection definitely works (I just posted this using it!) via Wi Fi. The LAN connection is up and talks to modem, but no data seems to come into the browsers (even though the LAN and ADSL data RX/TX light flashes on the modem when a browser is launched).

Any ideas what I can try guys?

Cheers for any help or pointers on where best to look.



Here are the route prints via the DOS prompt:

First is the Wi Fi connected Laptop details that works fine (the router gateway address is the I believe. I think the one ending in 3 is the upstairs PC itself:)

    It does have that feeling doesnt it - but I have disabled both XP Firewall and the AVG anti virus. Also I CAN get out to the router to tweak its settings etc using IE and the address.

    Out of interest, does 'pinging' bypass firewalls & stuff, or does it follow normal signal paths?

    Thx anyway.


  • Diesele Jan 21, 2008

    I got it! Under the TCP/IP settings fro LAN 2 the DNS server setting for some strange reason (or virus) had changed from 'get automatically' to a specific address. Back to Auto and it works fine.

    Ohh well at least I learnt a lot and will be dropping the term 'DNS' into casual conversation from now on!

    Thanks anyway!

Make sure your firewall is not blocking your ability to go to websites. I saw this the other day, somehow the users firewall was set to block all internet traffic out of the computer.

    Yes pinging would not be blocked. The same thing occured on the other problem I could ping google... I just couldn't go to google. In the end port 80 was blocked.

I have the ASUS T101 how do I get internet access without WIFI. Is there an internet card I can get?

Most desktop computers do not have Wi-Fi capabilities. If you wish to connect it to Wi-fi, you can use a USB Wi-fi LAN Card, which can be connected to any USB port of the PC and can be used to recieve wi-fi signals/ data. Note that PCI Wi-fi LAN Cards are also available, which are internal and added to PCI Port of the PC.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Cant connect wii to internet

The unit can connect to the Internet by utilizing its 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, which is built in, for wireless connections or via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor for DSL connections.
For your wireless connection or Wi-Fi, the 802.11b Wi-Fi has a data rate of 11 Mbits per second and has an indoor range of 30m or approximately 98 ft. The 802.11g has the same indoor range, however the data rate is at 54 Mbits per second. If you have an existing wireless connection or are in a Wi-Fi hotspot, the unit will connect to your wireless connection automatically out of the box. If you do not have a wireless network, however, you will need to have your wireless network subscription done or set-up first. Once you have wireless Internet access, you then search for your access point, put in your security settings and you’re good to go. It would also be advisable to have a wireless router for this so that you won’t have to shuttle the connection between your PC and your Wii. wi-fi-usb-connector.thumbnail.jpgAnother option would be to connect your Wii via the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. This accessory allows Nintendo Wii users who do not have an existing Wi-Fi connection or a compatible Wi-Fi network to create one through their broadband or DSL connected computer. This is inserted into your existing computer’s USB port and the Wi-Fi USB Connector acts as a wireless access point for the Wii. This allows the user access to the internet and to play Wi-Fi Connection games from Nintendo Online.
nintendo-wii-lan-adapter.thumbnail.jpgFor your DSL connection, however, you will need to have quite a few things. You can use a WII LAN adapter to connect your Wii to your DSL modem. You can also use a router so that you can use your PC and your Wii at the same time. With the LAN Adapter though, to use or plug in the Wii, you must disconnect your PC. This can be quite tedious since you will have to plug in and out your PC and your Wii every time you need to use one or the other. A LAN Adapter is fairly cheap, but if you get a router, your PC and your Wii can go online at the same time, saving you the hassle of connecting one or the other when you need them. You can then hook up the existing ethernet cords to the back of the router and connect it to the Wii via a USB 2.0 cord.

i hope this helps

Wireless network connection problem

Ok with a peripheral on USB or on PC card bay you can try to connect to a Wireless lan:
Please check this tip on the subject
To connect to an existing WLAN you must be sure your wireless card is working: I assume you installed all the related sw coming with the wlan card.
Using the card installed driver check card is enabled and running (in Control Panel/Network connection should be visible and enabled)
Then you can connect to an open Wi-Fi HOTSPOT or to your WLAN you configure with a router connected to your internet modem.
  1. To connect to an existing HOTSPOT: find a location where you know a wi-fi access point (HOTSPOT) is active: Internet cafe,, library, airport,, station, hotel etc.your card should be able to find the existing network when you select "show existing network" in wlan driver. Connect if network is "unsecure" (= no password or key is required) or ask for password if you can get it for a fee (hotel)
  2. To connect to your home or office WLAN be sure to use a router (or access point) with same standard of your card (802-11G or B or A or N) with same security protocol (WEP or WPA) and configure your router Internet access BEFORE wireless access. Connect your PC to your router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse through the router.(contact your ISP for router specs if you need it: PPOA/E and other). Follow the tip and your router doc for settings
