Tip & How-To about NetGear DG834G Router

If your wireless connection drops every 20-30 mins

I suggest that you use the NIC own application software to connect to your internet gateway (router) I have helped many people who have had this type of problem.

I first had problems with a INPROCOMM WLAN with a SKY Sagem Router it would drop out or go to 1MB connection and sometimes loose the 54g signal all together. After a restart sometimes the laptop would not find the profile and no connection was made.

As soon as I disabled the WZCSVC Windows Service (Wireless Zero Configuration that provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters) as it is designed to search for new routers every 20-30 mins this had to be my problem they appeared to contradict each other.

As soon as I disabled this service all my problems stopped, incidently if you have a Desktop with an Ethernet LAN 100MB connection if this service running is it useless and also takes some processor power even when it is not needed so just use the DISABLE_WZCSVC tweak anyway.

Best of Luck !!

Just abruptly, I cannot access internet using Ethernet cable

wow, my guess this is a 1 PC home, ?
no router stated, or if its yours or ISP (junk) I run my own gear.
try my steps for best fast correction of the problem.
is the router with WIFI, what is name of router and model number.
and get 10 times better answers.
  1. try another cable yet,or other router RJ45 Ethernet port?
  2. try 2nd PC here< or a friends,? work now? no then router issues....routers are complex, and no router stated so....
  3. if router is wifi try a pc yours or others or cell in wifi to connect does that work,???? you need to set up the router to use wifi.
  4. Ok there are 2 diagnostic paths here. 1 is router and your one and only PC and no friends have a PC, right? lets to that next.

Friends pc dead. on cable. (new cable not yours)
that means the router is broked.
even the lease time wrong can cause that.
did you reset the router to see if the connection comes up
that be first first.
if the router is still dead. you need access rights to check it.
so this help now ends.... lacking whats there or how owns it.

way 2 , 1 PC dead now, on 2 either net cables and all router ports dead. but other PC work on your router, simple no?

if just your pc is dead, it can only be 2 things
a: bad hardware (blown NIC chip) network interface chip.
b: bad software, or INSTALLED WRONG !!!
C; NIC parameters wrong called the STACK.

lets work B: (a; is hopeless, needs NIC new)
first off what PC is it and what does HP support.
the deal with HP mobo, is that the underlaying chips must
also be right for the NIC chip to work
many HP have up to 5 nic chips used there new.
(options) that right, up to 5, and the HP page covers that
if you had read it

first ill carbon date this beast 2007 it is , on the cusp of zero HP support,(10yr rule) get the software while you still can.
HP says
HP Pavilion dv2500t CTO Notebook PC

HP told me only Vista support.ed!!
well ,why leave VISTA. ? vista runs NIC ok for sure,[email protected]

now you must find all errors it the system for drivers.
that can mess up the NIC.
since now on W7 you are committed it seems.. ouch
and you used a real windows disk to do that, not HP disk.
so there will be missing drivers doing that. or wrong.

the NIC here is
Marvell Yukon 88E8039 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller Driver

here are the only drivers that can work
off marvell site
if you use CP control panel
and RC right click the NIC, you will see what chip is there
but be warned, other chips may need w7 drivers (correct)
to allow the NIC to run right, that is why never upgraded
with out HP , support,
but i have vast times but GO THE DISTANCE on all drivers
called HARD long work.
as seem below.:

if the network stack is all good
and your pc runs on your neighbors router with same cable
then the parameters in the router are wrong.

at he elevated command prompt type, (winkey+x) (admin)
IPconfig , enter

see that IPV4 , that is your router assigned IP, using its DHCP server. mine is set up with 10's on purpose.
the gate way must be correct and not blank

trying to set up D-link WBR-1310 with hughes net? internet works bypassing router, but will not work going through roughter.

The router will work properly with your internet connection if you have the right configuration. There is a configuration for cable internet connection and broadband internet connection. If you are using a broadband internet connection some of the ISP are providing a username and password before you can access the internet connection, so in your router, you will have to use the PPPoE username/password type of configuration. If you have cable internet connection, choose Dynamic IP DHCP and clone the mac address of your NIC by clicking the Clone Mac address.

Just in case if you don't know how to access the configuration page of your router follow the steps
1. plug your router to your computer via ethernet cable
2. If you are using windows XP
- click start
- click run
- type cmd
- press ok
- type ipconfig on the black screen
- look for the default gateway (this is the ip of your router)
- open internet explorer
- type http://the default gateway that you found
- press enter
- under internet, choose manual configuration
- save all settings after providing the correct configuration.

3. If you are using windows vista/7
- click pearl button
- click start search
- type cmd
- right click the black icon up at the top
- left click run as administrator
- click continue
- on the black screen type ipconfig
- check the default gateway
- open up internet explorer
- type http://the default gateway that you found

let me know if this helped you we'll see what else we can do

Linksys RVS4000 Networking question

it seem that your best bet would be to look into remote access programs that can be found easily on google.com. I would suggest browsing some of the options you find on there.

hint: if your looking for a no cost solution, simply add the keyword freeware in the google search bar

need to set up wireless for toshiba A105-S-4034

If you have installed the AT&T software, you should be able to use that application to connect to the Internet. Are you using a USB gateway or do you have a stand-alone gateway?

If you have the USB type, install the software first and then connect the USB gateway, Click on the software app to start the Internet connection. AT&T info will show a tab for GSx and one for Wireless. As long as you have a subscription, I would use the GSx tab, otherwise, select the wireless tab and connect to your gateway or any other wireless router that you have access to. Good Luck.
