Hey people, i need a little help here, not entirely sure what i'm doing wrong. Ive just been given a Netgear DG834GT, ive plugged it in properly using an Ethernet cable, its picking up an ADSL connection, but for some reason my PC doesn't recognise it, meaning there is no way for me to create an online connection. Its supposed to be plug in and play. Typing the router IP address in a browser address bar does nothing apart from tell me that i'm not online. Anyone know what i'm doing wrong? Cheers
hi Robblacky.... first thing we need to know is who is your isp ? routers dont need to make an online connection usually .... with a router you place the username and password for logging into the isp in the router and it auto connects .... if you cannot see the router stats page (192.168.0.1) in your web browser then you cant put in the username and password ...so cant login to the internet . do you have a lan setup on your pc ? does it show as working properly in device manager? Dave.
Hey thanks for your reply. My isp is Pipex, when i was using Win Vista it was working fine, but i switched back to XP and now i'm having problems. The setup wizard wont start (The 192.168.0.1), it opens up the browser and tells me i cant connect to the internet. Its not showing up on my Device manager either, which is why i'm saying that my pc isnt recognising it. If you need more info let me know, thanks :)
