Question about Computers & Internet

Hello I have a Netgear DG834GT router, and it has just started to fail. When you plug in the power, all the lights flash once , then it just does nothing. Tried the Reset at rear, but it didn't work. Is there a fix for this, or is the only option to flash the firmware? Can the firmware be flashed if there are no power lights on?

    Thanks for the help guys, but I've figured out that the router pcb is just dead/blown. After the initial single flash of all the lights, the only light that was left on, was the one that was getting power from the ethernet cable(from the pc). So effectively, the PCB is doing nothing.

    Thanks for your help anyway guys.

    Cheers
    Stein

    Does all the lights flash once and then all go off? Try fiddling around with the power cord into the back of the router to see if it is a loose connection with that. If your getting no power you wont be able to Firmware flash.

Sounds more like a power supply issue than the actual router...can you check the output of the power pack, with a voltmeter?

We have been using the Netgear router WPN824 for about 3 years and all of a sudden it stopped working. No flashing strobe lights - nothing. any suggestions?


Hello,

Will it even power on at all ? If there are no lights at all make sure its plugged in securely. Maybe even try a different power outlet to see if the one you are using has not gone bad. If that still doesn't help then there is a chance that your router has failed. Being 3 years old it is possible. A failure can be from a power surge, storm, manufacture defect etc. In which case you will have to replace it. Sorry for the bad news.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,
Daniel

You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.

first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this

go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".

If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.
