    Help Save Jimbob's Xmas

    Dear Friends,

    Yesterday my christmas present arrived, a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Firewall Router DG834G. I removed my BT Vogager and replaced it with the new Netgear. I Set everything up using the automatic setup wizard and it won't let me connect.

    I have gone through the settings manually and they seem to be all in order. I have played with the connections I have and it just won't work.

    Someone suggested I download the latest firmware, however it is the latest version of the model so the firmware should be almost brand new. Someone also suggested I try unplugging the phones connected up and try connecting.

    Any Advice, please its nearly christmas.

    Jimbob

    Hey ther JB - I'm not sure as to your particular problems - that would take more investigation - but doesn't more work need to be done in order to guarantee the security of your new wireless network? I could be off-base here but from what I understand (which is limited I readily admit) many precautions should be in place prior to initializing a wireless network, I mean - you don't want to find yourself paying for BigBuck's dirty movies, do you :cool:

    The problem is not the wireless router but the actually modem I believe. I cannot connect to to internet when I am wired up through ethernet either.

    If you could please look into this. I'm hoping to have a response from the people I have emailed and attempt to sort the problem this evening.

    Jimbob, could you try checking to see what's causing the problem exactly. Is it the modem?

    It appears so, the problem seems to be when it is attempting to connect to the internet, as far as I know the wireless router is fine. I will worry about that after I have sorted this connection problem.

    I've got an idea: Uninstall the modem then re-install it back. I wonder if it will work.

    There is one other thing, my dad insists on using a browser supplied by Bt :doubt:

    I really don't like it and I was not sure if this could take any effect.

    oh - if you consider that the lack of connection may due to the browser - try pinging summit.

    BT= British Telicom, my ISP

    The browser is BY Yahoo! Browser.

    Sounds like it may be a case of updating my Firmware but the item is pretty new.

    *pokes at Blue till he's Blue in the face*

    I think I am right in saying it is version 2 of the DG834G.

    Now that must be one long stick...

    Here's one more

    Connection drop with DG834G. Go to the link in the post by Drewcycle. Maybe WZC is involved here.
