Netgear problem!

  daniel_harding 15:15 12 Apr 2008


It's been working ok for sometime, then today i've used USB to save some pictures, and the LAN PORT 4 doesn't lit up anymore! on the NETGEAR router of course... I've tried using other ethernet cable, doesn't make any difference so i rebooted it, and it still doesn't work. So i checked old Speedtouch USB internet and this is what i am using currently. Is there any other ways of fixing it!!? Heelpppp!

And, you know, on NETGEAR DG834GT, you see all them lights lit up? All other lights do lit up as normal..(Power, WiFi, Internet, and the LAN numbers) But the number won't lit up. There's 1,2,3 and 4. None of them will lit up when i plug the ethernet cable in.. I would appreciate it if any of you guys could help rather soon.

Many Thanks

It could be your ethernet card in your pc?

The router wouldn't light up if there was no signal being received from the computer.

As i understand your concern is lan lights are not lited up.

step1: try with different ethernet cable.

still no light on the lan ports,
take a ethernet cable .. connect one end to lan 2 and other end to lan4. check the lan 2 and lan 4 lights are lited up or not.

if step 1 does not work,

reduced the link speed.

-->click on start
-->go to control panel.
-->double click on network connections.
-->right click on local area connection icon and go to properties.
-->there you can see small white box with items with check marks in front.
-->In that high light "internet protocol TCP/IP" and click on "configure" button.
-->you will have a pop up window.. click on "yes".
-->click on "advanced" tab.
-->you have two options "properties and values.
-->under "properties" select laink speed and duplex.
-->under "values" select 10 mb half.
-->click ok.

-->after this if light lited in amber.. check the ip address on the computer.

i hope this will help u:-)
