After you connected the new router to your modem (using the WAN connection on the router) did you restart the modem? Try restarting the modem and the router.

    The device you had originally connected to your computer is the modem. It translates the signal from your internet provider into an ethernet connection which can be used by your computer. The wire that was plugged into your compter originally should be plugged into the connection marked "WAN" on your router. It is usually located away from the group of internal connections (4 or 8 normally depending on your router). After you make this connection, you will need another RJ45 cable to connect the computer to one of the grouped ports, If you are using a wireless connection, you may still have to connect with a cable to set the router up, then disconnect and use the wireless connection from then on.

    Also, many times the connection between the router and the modem is a different type of cable. It s best to use the one that came with the modem if you have it. You can check with tech support of your provider to help you too.

    Are you saying the device provided to you from your ISP has 4 connections? If so, perhaps the device is already a router.

  • Wayne Hammond Mar 23, 2008

    If the router was supplied by your provider and is not connecting to the internet, then you must call your provider. There may be a problem with your connection to the company network. When you call for support, the agent will be able to check the router remotely to see if there is a problem. If the agent cannot connect, then the line repair section will be dispatched.

Drivers for ADSL DGB111G router


No, the drivers only go up to Windows XP.

However you do not need the drivers to setup the router if you do it manually over a Ethernet connection.

You only need a copy of the manual to login correctly.

But it is no longer available.

Do i have un install my speed touch modem to install netgear dg834v5


Hi, please note that speedtouch modem and DG834G router will not work together. Rather DG834G will replace the speedtouch modem. Remove the speedtouch modem and follow 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 or Mozilla Firefox).
4. Access the router (usually http://192.168.0.1).
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.

I have two routers Netgear DG834Gv3 and Thomson SpeedTouch TG585v7. I want to create a wireless bridge between these two routers, so that I can have internet on the Netgear router. The main router/Access...


I am sorry but I am not so familiar with the Thomson Device but I can give you a clue on how to set it up....you can skip the security settings first just make sure they work then you can set it later...Check it out!

- Thomson as "Master Router" connected to modem set up as follows
-- 192.168.1.1
-- Set up wireless access point as you normally would in Wireless Settings, muine are "MY_SSID",Channel 2,b+g mode,
64-bit WEP with hex key (rather than pass phrase)
--- Enter any laptop wifi MAC addresses in the "Client Access List" here to allow them and make sure it's set to restrict
them
-- Set DHCP range to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.127 (my preference) in "Lan Settings"
-- go to Wireless Bridging and Repeating menu option
--- Set "Enable Wireless Repeating Function"
--- Set as "Wireless Base Station"
--- DO NOT check the "Disable Wireless Client Association" if you want to be able to use laptop wifi
--- Enter the mac address of your "Slave Router" here
Make sure all of the above is applied and has stuck, i had a habit of setting some things then clicking to a sub-menu
before clicking apply, always scroll down and click apply before drilling into sub options!

DG834G V3 : "Slave Router"
-- Get latest firmware as earlier v3 firmware doesnt support WDS
-- 192.168.1.2
-- Enable Wireless Settings and set to exact same as "Master Router" including 64 bit WEP key and MAC access list for
laptops etc
-- Disable DHCP in Basic Setup (I think)
-- "Advanced Wireless Settings" menu option
--- "Enable Bridging and Repeating"
--- Select the "Wireless Bridge With Client Association" (or similar) option
--- Enter the "Master Router" MAC address here
Again, double check everything has stuck, that the "normal" wireless settings for both routers are identical and reboot
both (in either order worked for me but booting the Master first is probably best practise)
GOOD LUCK!!!

Netgear DGB111G Starter Kit


Path #1:
Change all of you cordless phones to another frequency (Other than 2.4 Ghz).
Path #2:
If the netgear is in the same room as you, couldn't you plug in directly an ethernet cable into the netgear? You could buy an ethernet cable at any computer stores around and they go up to 30 feet. And no CD installation would be needed, it should just work with a wire to another wire.

Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router


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..
