Question about NetGear DG834G Router

2 Answers

The Wireless Signal keeps dropping out.

This router (Netgear DG834G) used to work fine. Recently the wireless network has started dropping out without warning and often the internet connection speed can be very slow (sub dial-up speeds). I have checked the ADSL download speed using an older wired router and speed checking software and it's fine.

When the wireless drops out (which occurs on my laptop, PS3, Wii and iPhone) the light on the front indicating a Wireless transmission is still green. The network than randomly reappears and sometimes I can reconnect to it and sometimes I can't. I have read lots of sites trying to resolve this issue myself but to no avail. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP?

I list below what I have done/tried:

I have not added any new electrical equipment.
I have updated the Firmware.
I have checked the Firewall settings.
I have manually entered the DNS stipulated by my IPS (Virgin Broadband).
I have checked the local wireless routers and set my channel to 13 to deconflict from others (I set it to 1 and 2 as well but this didn't solve the problem).
I have de-powered and repowered.
I have returned the Router to factory settings and set it up from scratch.
I have checked my incoming internet connection using a wired router.
I have a WPA PSK enabled network in place.

Make sure that there are no cordless or wireless devices near the router such as a cordless phone since that will interfere with the wireless signal and a cause for frequent disconnection.

otherwise, the device should be replaced already.

My laptop won't connect via wireless, and can't even find the network. It used to work fine until a few days ago. I have a netgear DG834G router


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Do i need a disk to install a netgear wireless?


You need a network cable (cat5e) to connect the cable modem to the wan or Internet port on the router. Then another network cable to connect the router port(1-4) to the computer's network (NIC) port. If you are going wireless, you do not need to connect the second cable.
You do not need a disk. just power down the cable modem,router and computer.
Hook it all up, then power up the cable modem first, wait 30 seconds, then power up the router, wait 30 seconds, then power up the computer. You shold be able to get online.
Unless: you are using DSL
and unless the original owner had an encryption key on the router.

Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.
