    I've tried that, Bt say the line is ok. I think the router is knackered.

  • russelloakes Jul 17, 2008

    Windows Vista Home Basic, and two XP machines and a Mac running Leopard, tried connecting on all three now and there all dead. In the config on the modem its telling me it fails to find the ADSL line.

  • russelloakes Jul 18, 2008

    I've connected directly to it on two pcs and its fruitless. I mean when i log into the router admin screen it just says cannot find adsl line.

Power down your modem, your router, wait 60 seconds. Power up your modem. Let it completely cycle up. Power up your router.

Call your service provider if this doens't work

    I doubt your router is knackered.



    Take the router out of the loop. Directly connect via ethernet to your modem and see if you get access.



    What version of operating system are you running?

    Not clear about your last response. Did you eliminate the router and physically connect directly to the modem?

    What do you mean in the config on the modem?

  • Pamela Bates

    If you are directly connected to the modem from your pc via ethernet or usb and you cannot get out to the internet your modem is knackered not your router.

    If you haven't already tried the troubleshooting in Chapter 8 of this reference try it.

    Otherwise I would reset the unit and reconfigure the whole thing.

How can I extend my home internet network?


Yes you can connect the LAN ports with a network cable from your 3G router to one of your old router LAN ports
Before connecting the 2nd router:
Check it does not have a conflicting IP.
Check it is in the same subnet
ie if 3G router is 192.168.0.1
Set old router to 192.168.0.10
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway is 192.168.0.1
DNS 192.168.0.1

Set DHCP off on 2nd router.
Set WIFI to Same SSID, same password and authentication
ensure it is on a different channel though.(not automatic on either)

Finally just to make sure remove any WAN settings from your router, any old ADSL config etc so that it doesnt think it is a gateway.

Internet connot display web page all the time , and slow download speeds,modem adsl light coming on constantly.


Dealt with a lot of these. It is either :

1. Wrong password and ISP information - double check that everything your ISP has asked you to put in is correct

2. Bad phone connection - even if the ADSL light comes on (which means the router can see an ADSL connection from your phone provider) does not mean the line is clean. Pull out all the connections to your home phone, and just plug in the router to get it all up and running. Once happy reconnect one at a time all phones, digi boxes etc.

3. Adding to 2. - have you got a splitter? If so, change your splitter or reconnect, splitters can fail quite easily and get old fast - a bad splitter creates a lot of noise on the line, making the internet time out

It could be a router fault, they last about 4 years before they start doing silly things. But likely one of the above.

Try two sites once you are happy :

www.speedtest.net - to check your connection speed
www.pingtest.net - to check line quality

I use AOL as my ISP, with British Telecom supplying my telephone line rental. On Friday 2nd my internet connection kept dropping out, and then eventually stopped connecting altogether. My original router...


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.

How do I disable my DG834GT router firewall?


The router firewall only blocks connections coming from the internet.

Basically it only lets an outside IP connect to your network if you establish the connectoin FIRST.

The most common cause of not being able to see another PC on the LAN is not having the same workgroup name.

Go to Start > My Computer , right click > Properties > Computer name. Make sure all PCs have the same workgroup name.
