Martin, Re mac Laptop & wireless prob.  Thanks for the reply but you miss the point, it is with the mac that the connectivity fails, XP connects wirelessly without trouble! Oh the shame of it, for the mac user where "everything just works" this situation is embarrassing. I'll suggest upgrading this neighbour's mac to Leopard to see if that helps.

Go to command prompt I.e type cmd in run option which is available in start menu,then a black color window will open ,type IPCONFIG and press enter,it will display IP address ,it should be anything but not 169.254.#.# ,if you are getting this IP address check with ur cable or the driver might not be installed .

If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.

The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.

1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.

2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.

From Windows XP:

Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller

Right click on your network controller ==> properties

Check the device status !!!

2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.

3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:

START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
==> Next.

4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
modem" option.

If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)

Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
option.

    I am a Windows guy,
    don't know much about the MAC.

If initially the Win XP laptop was connected to internet at the cable/dsl modem, its MAC address would have been registered on service setup. If the router is now in place between the Win XP laptop and the cable/dsl modem, you would need to go on the Win XP laptop and log into the router as admin to clone the Win XP laptop's MAC address to the dlink router's WAN interface (internet facing side) so that the cable/dsl modem will see the previously registered MAC address and will enable the internet access.

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

Netgear DG834G v3 Installation


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

Netgear setup


You have to connect to the router with ethernet to get onto the configuration page. what i think what you have to do is to get a lan card and install it.
