Question about NetGear DG834G Router
I'm trying to install my netgear wireless modem router (DG834G) on my vista-run laptop and having lots of problems!
Managed to get a fair way of the way through the installation CD, but in the end it tells me my computer has more than 1 network adapter, it requires a wired ethernet network adapter (which is the yellow cord I have plugged in I think??), that I can't use a wireless adapter, and to click the wired adapter I'll be using.. only I can't click on anything!
It then took me eventually to a page to put in my IP address and the DNS addresses, which I did, but then it tells me that something is wrong and to check those addresses and check the cables etc. etc.
Originally the computer did something automatically about my IP address - I think making it the same as the router?
I'm really lost, don't know what all these things mean!! Should I do things manually rather than use the cd? (I don't know how to do that either!)
Don't bother installing the router with the cd.
There isn't any drivers your computer needs, it just installs cr*p.
You will, however have to set up your router they didn't send it to you already set up.
If you bought your router from your ISP when you took out your broadband, its probably already set up. Simply plug the router in, plug it into the phone with a microfilter in, and watch the green lights on the front. If the 'internet' or 'dsl'light lights up green, it should mean your router is already set up.
Now, you should be able to connect to the internet by plugging the yellow lead in. if you can, then your router is definately set up.
Now you just have to set your wireless up. To do this you need to search for wireless networks. If you know how to do that , then locate your one (it will probably be called netgear something) click it, and click connect. If it asks for a network key, look for a sticker on the router, and it should have your network key printed on it.
Hope this helps. I've been a little vague in places but i'm not sure of your level of understanding

You have to configure your router...
If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.
If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.
Hope this could help..

Could you give me some overview of the topology of the network your trying to install the router on? (How it's all connected, and the ip addresses of the machines and other routers on the network (if any)) ?

This link should walk you though it, step by step!
If you are using Vista, you will probley want this link, too. Click on Network icon.
In the past I have found the biggest issue with networking is firewalls, so I suggest you disable them just for testing and setting up your network.

connect the yellow (or blue?) ethernet cable to your computer, this should connect to the router (router should be ON)
Now, in internet explorer type 192.168.0.1 (this should be the defualt gateway for the router on default settings.
Now you're into the router, there should be a setup wizard button in there.
See if you can set it up using that

Connect to the Router,
Under the Security tab, select Services, then add, give it the name XBOX TCP/UDP, set start port as 3074 and end port as 3074, set type as TCP/UDP, click apply/ok. Do this again, giving it the name XBOX UDP, start port 88, end port 88, type UDP, then apply settings.
Now go to Firewall under the Configuration tab, under incoming click add, now select the service XBOX UDP/TCP from the drop down menu. select forward to specific IP address or similar and type in your Xbox's IP address e.g. 192.168.1.5, click log never, then apply ok. Do the same for XBOX UDP and your again click apply. That's it! you've successfully opened the necessary ports on your Router and told your Router that any incoming info on those ports should be sent to your Xbox.
