Question about Linksys SRW224G4 24-Port Ethernet Switch

1 Answer

I have a Linksys SRW224G4 connected to a Netgear DG834 ADSL 2 modem 4 port router. It seems to drop the connection every 5 minutes or so. I've checked all the ethernet cables with a tester to ensure no faults. Any idea what the problem could be?

The linksys may be assigning IP addresses that conflict with the router. Usually you need to disable Dynamic IP assignment in downstream routers and switches.

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point


The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.

1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer.
2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port.
3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.

4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider
5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes.
6. Now power on your PC.

Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.

Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

I lost my netgear installatio cd, what do i do to install it?


You dont need that CD, in fact I recommend NOT using it.
1. Power off your cable or dsl modem for about 30 minutes 2. Also power of the router 2. Connect a cable from the modem to the Internet port on the Linksys router 3. Connect your PC to the router. 4. Power ONLY the dsl or cable modem on NOT the router. 5. After about 1 minute power on the router.
Should work now.

Firmware Upgrade

1. Please verify the model and version of the router underneath it.
2. Go to ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/dg834v2_dg834gv2_3_01_38_uk_only.zip to download the firmaware.
3. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with wired or Ethernet connection only. Before you upgrade, write down all current settings as you need to enter them manually after upgrading.

4. Using the computer hardwired on the router, open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
5. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.0.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
6. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

7. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
8. Click Browse and locate the upgrade file in your Desktop. Click Upload.
9. Please wait for the router to reboot.
10. Reset the router.

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then please plug it back in.

My netgear dg834 wired router ceased to get an ADSL connection for no apparent reason? The ADSL connection, filter and cabling all work (as I've tried with a modem). Hmmm?


I'd try a hard reset by unplugging the router, holding in the reset button for 30 seconds, while you plug the router in and see if you can get it going again. If not its time for a new one.

Connecting another router


i would'nt recommend it, theres no need for two unless you have mote than 4 hardwired pc's and 8 wireless, especially if they are both modem/routers, you cannot use two, only one modem/router and one router

Dual Routers?


Disable DHCP in the router. Connect the modem to a LAN jack on the router. You'll have 3 LAN ports. If you need more ports, buy a hub. (You can change the default IP address on the Linksys, but you can't forward through 2 NATs.)
