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

I am unable to get my Dell Laptop online anymore.


I can solve this for free so don't worry about the money. We may have to go back and forth a few times so get a pen and paper, cause I can't see what you see. And I'm gonna send this in as a solution but you don't have to rate it until you are satisfied. That way is will be just you and me working on the problem and there won't be any conflicting information.
Alright, you say that you have a connection to the wirless router with your laptop but you can't get on the Internet on your laptop. So do this first and send me the info. First, click on start>run>type in cmd. This will bring you to the DOS prompt. Type cd \. Now you should be at the C:>.
Type in ipconfig /all. Then send me the IP address (should be 192.168.xxx.xxx.) and the gateway address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx). We'll start from there. I have to see if you are connecting to the ISP web server. Just send it and I'll reply.

Problems connecting my laptop to wireless router


Make sure that you do the setup via cable, not through wireless!
If you change form WPA to WEP, the length of the key changes and you will have to provide this new key if you want to connect wireless to your router.
You can leave your laptop connected via cable and check if your wireless card can connect.
No, you don't have to reinstall everything again. Just plug in the cable, connect to your router (192.168.x.x) and check your wireless setup.

HAVE INSTALLED NETGEAR DG834PN, WORKS WELL WHEN CONNECTED DIRECT TO LAPTOP, BUT WILL NOT CONNECT WHEN UNPLUGGED FROM COMPUTOR


  • Your laptop has to be configured with the wireless settings set in the router.
  • In your laptop, you may check the available wireless network that it can detect and you must select your own wireless network.
Hope this helps!

Wireless routers


Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.
