Question about NetGear DGN2000-100NAS Router

Open Question

My new (refurbished) Netgear DGN2000 router/modem refuses to establish a broadband connection. It's fine as a router but whether I let the so-called Setup Wizard make the connection, or I try to set it up manually, it always reaches the same conclusion: LCP down. I've triple-checked my login name and password (with Plusnet), and everything else (IP and DNS addresses etc) is as it should be. Why is the modem not connecting?

SOURCE: I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.

Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

Not able to browse the sites using Netgear DGN2000 router...

May be good to disable all additional settings. e.g. firewall or Port forwarding. I am assuming that you are able to authenticate (connect with user id + password) as you mentioned youtube works fine. So in that case, there shouldnt be a basic issue but more of a port forwarding or nat. Also check your laptop for any setting changes or personal firewalls.
Try pinging local gateway, then DNS then any international website. Based on that you can focus on the problematic area.

When i connect my netgear DGN2000 to the dsl and ethernet, i still can't access the internet, what can i do to fix this?

Router set up
Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

When I change modems i can't connect to the internet.

You must provide valid wan configuration on the modem part. Get it configured from your providor or check your old modem configuration note down wan settings. Apply these settings to your new ADSL+Router.

Can't get internet access through NetGear DG834G Router

You have to configure your router...

If your ISP provided you with IP Address, enter the assigned IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP address anbd DNS IP address for your broadband router.

If you connect to the Internet using an xDSL Modem and your ISP has provided you with a Password and a Service Name, then your ISP uses PPPoE to establish a connection. You must enter the required information.

Hope this could help..
