I understand that you would like to extend the wireless coverage in your home with the DG834G. I would suggest you to configure DG834G as an access point to extend the coverage of your post office router using the below steps:


1. Connect a computer directly to DG834G on any of the four LAN ports.

2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.

3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.

4. Click on wireless settings in the left hand side menu Under Setup.

5. Change the network name SSID to some other name.

6. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.

7. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic' and Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.

8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.

9. Apply the settings.


Click on LAN IP setup from the left menu.


1. Change the IP address of the router from 192.168.0.1 to a free IP address in the range of the Post office router.

2. Also disable the DHCP of the router by unchecking the box for 'Use router as DHCP Server'.

3. Click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.

4. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, turn off the router and restart the computer.


Now, connect the two router in the following way:


1.Connect Ethernet cable from the Lan port of the Post office router to the Lan port of the DG834G

2. Powercycle both the routers and your computer

3. You may connect other computers' directly to DG834G or wirelessly as per your requirement.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.


Regards

Try a normal phone plugged into your phone socket just to make sure the problem isn't with your equipment; if it is the line call bt back and ask them to fix it.

What kind of router do I need to use wtih the sylvania 7 G Netbook and where do I get it?


As your Mini PC is likely to be no higher than 'g' - almost any Router will do, BUT you need a Router that will MATCH your Broadband connection to your House or Flat.
If you have a 'normal' Telephone Line - an ADSL Router is needed and an Adaptor/Splitter so you can run the phone AND your Router at the same time.
If you have Cable into the house for Phone and TV, You will need a Cable Router.
Depending on the ISP you are buying time with - Virgin, Talk Talk or BT for instance you may get a FREE Router...
On the subject of ADSL Routers, If you are buying 20Mb and above Speed packet from an ISP you should look for an ADSL2 Router
If you're in a rush to get a Router - PCWorld, Currys, Dixons or Staples are open daily.
At a more leisurely pace, you can buy On-Line from reputable companies like Aria.co.uk Ebuyer.com cclonline.co.uk or Amazon.co.uk
Expect to pay between £20 and £40 for a router. (Online is usually cheaper)
Hope you find this useful

Does it need a modem or works on it's own ??


It doesn't need a separate modem; it replaces a modem in your home network. If it's properly connected to the phone line, and you have an internet service provider (ISP) supplying you with a broadband connection, and the PC is connected to the router, then it should all work fine.

If it isn't all working fine, the most likely problem is either that the wires aren't connected in the right places, or that the PC's internet connection isn't set up properly (e.g. if you changed from dial-up with a modem to broadband with a router).

If you have recently changed from dialup to Broadband, and you're running Windows, use the Network Connections wizard to set up the internet connection. In Windows XP you can do it this way:
1) click on Start
2) move the mouse to Settings
3) click on Control Panel
4) double click on Network Connections
5) click on File
6) click on New Connection Wizard
7) follow the instructions.

Your ISP should have sent you a CD-ROM to help you to connect, so insert the CD when prompted by the New Connection Wizard.

Sometimes you can just insert the CD into the computer and you'll be prompted to do everything necessary to connect to the internet. BT, for example, do it this way.

Good luck!

Well this product DGN1000 is a generic router supplied by Netgear and can be used with any ADSL/DSL ISP. Please ensure that you upload the latest firmware for this router from the netgear support site and then you can use it with other ADSL/DSL ISP.

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.

Cannot connect to internet


Well, the ISP really should be able to help you here, since the equipment is theirs... Did you ad for a technician to come out to service this connection?...

Some of these routers come with a RESET feature, a button on the back of the router.. you might try resetting it back to its defaults.. If it has one, then depress it for up to a minute.. this should reset it configuration...

Let me know if you find it.. and we can go from there..

Could not find ATM circuit


This Issue Pertains to your line being connected to a bad DSLAM port in your ISP's "Central Office" I am a computer technician, and have dealt with this issue about six times, two of which were on my lines. there is nothing to troubleshoot, stop power cycling, you are wasting your time, call your isp techs and have them get thier ***** out there to the office and fix your line.

BT Voyager 2091 Wireless ADSL Router - DROP OUT


If you face frequent drop outs confirm with your isp that it's not a problem with line...and also check the physical setup of broadband check if your router is connected to main socket of your house where telephone line enters in your house......
now when you face drop outs check on your hard wired comp whether you remain connected or not if no its a problem with line..
if no reconfig your bt router for wireless network change the channel of your wireless network either to 1 or 11...
or either there is one other way reset your router to default settings by pressing the pin at the back of your router..
and after that your router will start its default wireless network i.e a unsecure network..
try connecting to that network if still the same there are drop outs it's a problem with router....contact bt to config the router...
