  Richardleeds 18:11 13 Nov 2009

Hi, have purchased a Netgear DG834GT router. Have managed to setup the router for ethernet connections. But i seem to be having problems with the wireless connection. My computer can see the router but i am unable connect and it says that is not getting a responce from the router. Please advice.

If this has already been posted, please can you direct me.

What firmware is the router using?
If it's v1.02.19 or later there are issues. You could downgrade to v1.02.14 which works fine.

I am current running firmware V1.03.22, please advice how you would downgrade the firmware?

Thanks for all your help.

Go here click here and click the box "show all versions".
Download firmware v1.02.14 and save it somewhere.
Now make sure you are connected to the router by ethernet cable!!!
In the routers setup page, click on "router upgrade" and choose the file you just downloaded. Then click upload and it takes a few minutes.

Sorry, forgot to read all of your reply. Will try it now.

Have now tried the downgrade, but still unable to connect via wireless.

Sounds like a duff router/modem. Return as faulty.
