Are you on AOL by any chance, if you are they have an AOL easy installer, which I think AOL customers need to use.

The DG834 is normally simple to install, what is the nature of the error that you are getting and at what point?

h t t p : / / is a local address to your router. No-one externally can access it.

What you need to do is make sure you have a network cable from your computer's network card to one of the 4 ports on the router.

Switch the router on and you should be able to login using the address with "admin" and "password" as the login details.

If you can't login, make sure you are using the cable which came with the router and make sure it is plugged into the network port on your computer.

Once you can access the router, you need to plug in the ADSL cable from your phone socket (using the filter provided). This will then allow you to set up the internet connection.

V3 router, tried the advise above including clicking the link from dth but all I get is unable to open web page.The router came from ebay the wrapping was unopened and came with an AOL install CD. I am on Pipex broadband. I have tried with my original D-Link modem still connected and with it and it.s drivers removed but am still unable to get the browser to get me to the setup for the Netgear.The bios "smart lan" setting tell me that the cable to the unit is alright and all the right green lights are on. Help Please.

If you cannot log on to the router using the standard h t t p : / / address, and using the default user name of admin, and the default password of, believe it, or not; password, then you most likely have a defective Network Interface Card (NIC), Local Area Network (LAN) cable or a defective router.

Post back with findings.
