I don't know the answer to your specific problem but netgear's support pages may help. click here . I found what I was looking for when a had a problem with a different netgear router/modem.

Unplug the router.

Now plug it back in...

Then let it connect to you ISP. The Orange tick should disappear and the "I" symbol should come to green.

Make sure you are connected to the internet...Log into the router through your browser...

Router Status <> Modem <> Modem Status <> Should be "Connected".

Scroll to the bottom and click "Connection Status".

You should then see:

Connecting to Server: Connected

Negotiation: Success

Authentication: Success

Getting IP Addresses: An IP Address should be seen.

Getting Network Mask

The above indciates you are connected regardless of what the "Modem Status" is showing. *

If NOT hit the "Connect".

If it still fails go back to main home page for the router and on the left click "Diagnostics". Click "Reboot" and follow the instructions and try to connect and access the test webpage.

*The reason i say this is becasue it lies to me sometimes :-(

i went into add/remove and hit the add window components. sure enough there were no ticks next to the file sharing and internet monitoring tools. i added them and presto it works.
now i also have a netgear wireless card which connects promptlu but again dns errors.the signal strenght is excellent but alas dns errors. any suggestions?

i have installed a netgear wireless pc card into my laptop. i can share files see the desktop computer and the internet gateway icon says connected. however i get dns errors when i try to connect. i am also using the netgear DG834G WIRELESS ADSL MODEM ROUTER.The signal strenght is excellent.The mac address of the laptop is also shown on the desktop.
also this router is supposed to have a hardware fire wall, where is this firewall and can i alter it?

I have had problems with this Router: frequent connection loss, sometimes two or three times a week

I contacted Neatgear help and the suggested my sorftware must be corrupted. I upgraded to verion 1.3 software. This has solved the problem

Look above.

Firewall - Log into the firewall, on the left "Firewall Rules". You can alter it, but I don't think it is the cause of your problem.
