If this is a brand new router and you are trying to connect to it for the first time then 192.168.0.1 should work, as long as you have the correct kind of cable plugged in and are following the directions.
The manual for this router is at: http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/dg834g_dg834gb_ref_manual_03Jun05.pdf
If you are not concerned about losing your routers settings and are setting it up for the first time then you can do a "hard reset" to make sure that the address of the router has not been changed.
First off, let's make sure you are plugged into the router correctly.
The cable from your computer to the router should be plugged in to one of the LAN ports, NOT the ADSL Internet port. If you have it plugged in correctly and you are unable to access it still then I would try to RESET the router to default settings.
You can do a reset by using a paper clip or similar object to press the RESET button, which is in the small hole as shown in the diagram.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds). 2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
YOU MUST HOLD THE RESET BUTTON UNTIL THE TEST LED TURNS ON!
This will rest the router to the factory default and allow you to access it at the address 192.168.0.1.
NOTE: After you reset the administration password is the word "password"
Please ask if you need further assistance. If you still cannot access the router at 192.168.0.1 after a reset then you should check your cabling and/or ask for more help.

Problem can't be solved as described, a fixer would need more details.
What kind of modem/router is it?
What instructions are you working from so far (you say, "as instructed" so I take it you're looking at a Quick Start Guide of some sort?)
How are you connected to it?
What http address are you going to (E.g. some routers use 192.168.1.1, others 192.168.1.254 or various alternatives)
What happens when you enter that address on a browser?
Have you set your computer's address to a nearby address so it can talk to the route?
If I had one guess with not enough information, I'd say you need to set your PC to an address one different from the target you're going to.
