How do i set it up tryed everyting wont work even read d manual


Must not have either read or understood the quick setup. You plug the computer into one of the 4 ports on the router and set your network address to whatever it told you to use either 192.168.0. something other than 0 or 1 or 192.168.2.something other than 0 or 1. That gets you to the web based setup and you follow instructions from there including how you set it up to access your modem. If it's a cable modem, you may be able to use DHCP, but you might have to have the cable company send a "hit" to clear the equipment it was looking for. In a DSL modem, you may have to set up PPTP stuff, which is in the instructions from the cable company.

Dg834n lost installation disk


Please note that Router does not require installation software for its configuartion. It can be configured manually using the below steps:

1. Connect the cable/phone line coming from Internet Service Provider to the WAN port of the router(isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
3. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
4. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
5. Login to the router (username = admin password = password unless you have changed it).
6. Click 'setup wizard'(at the top of list) from left menu.
7. Select yes and click next.
8. It should give you a "PPPoA Detected" and then click next.
9. Enter the login and password of ISP click apply.
10. Once the settings are updated click on 'router Status' and click on 'connection status' button(at the bottom of the page).
11. Click on connect button.
12. Connecting to server should show 'connected'.
13. If you receive 'CHAP authentication failed', close the 'connection status' window and click on 'Basic settings'. Check the login and password for ISP and apply the setting again.
14. Open up another browser window and try to access internet.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

My daugther gave me her old router Westell Model 327W . How can I do to be able to use it? she does not remember her passocode.


This product is a MoDeM / Gateway for ADSL you will need the DSL ISP provider to use this item and then they (the ISP) to activate the MoDeM's MAC Address. Once this is done there is a reset button on the back of the product. This button is inset to prevent it from being pushed in the normal operations of the unit. Push the button in with the end of a pen for 10 seconds and release and wait for the unit to re-acquire the information from the ISP. Don't forget to change the default security settings to prevent malicious intruders.
